A.M. 10.1 with Josse and Jeff in 1:16:04. I noticed Josse was
conversational at 7:20 pace, and suggested we test her fitness, to
which she agreed. We let her set the pace for 0.5, which we did in
3:10. Then I had a VPB, and did a bit of a tempo pick-up to catch up.
Afterwards, we paced Josse to a 6:23 mile, which would have been about
6:21 without an ice patch. Dropped Jeff and Josse off, and went for
another 5. Did a 300 meter pickup in 59 seconds to probe 15 K race pace.
original plan was to do a mile time trial indoors. I was curious how
fast I could run a mile all out. But after some thought I decided it
would be a bad idea. I get injured on the track easily, and the dust,
the germs, and the stress of an all-out mile, all being something I
have not adapted to, could easily bring on a respiratory infection or
some other illness. So I decided I should be satisfied to know that I
can run a 5:04 at the end of a flat 10 K and leave it at that.
