A.M. Ran with Benjamin and Jeremy, our new training partner who we met in our ward. He owns Cafe Fresh and a number of other health-food businesses. We ran 6 miles together. It was early in the morning, so inevitably I had to do a VPB then run to catch up. Ran 82 quarter into the canyon and it felt easy. When we turned around, I found out why. There was significant wind blowing into the canyon, which is rare for the early morning. Then I added 4 more, including circular strides. I got the idea when Joseph asked me to show him cross-country skiing videos. We stumbled upon a technique training video that suggested the strength imbalance can be corrected by skating in circules in the direction that opposes the imbalance. I figured since my imbalance was developed by running on the track in the standard counter-clockwise direction, I should try doing a few strides in the clockwise direction. So I did 6 strides, the diameter of the circle was about 20-25 meters. Will call that a quarter. Then 2 more with Jenny and Julia, total of 12.
P.M. 1 with Joseph and the older Jacob, 1 with my son Jacob. The older Jacob's brother Nate ran the first and the last quarter or so with us.
