A.M. Ran 10.18 with Jeff in 1:22:14. Did 5x200 with full rest in the middle. My splits were 30.9 - 30.0 - 30.8 - 29.6 - 29.6. I felt very tense in the first two, then loosened up, but not 100%. Felt tension in the shoulders in the 4th repeat. Had Jeff massage them out, and it did help. It was gone in the last one, which I think helped me keep the pace in spite of the fatigue in the muscles. 30.8 felt easy, but 29.6 was all I could do.
Jenny ran 2.5 with Sarah.
P.M. 2 with Benjamin in 17:13. Julia ran 1.5 in 13:03. 0.5 with Joseph in 4:39. He was bumming around and being lazy at the start. I told him to get on the ball. He said he did not have to if he did not want to. I explained to him about choice and consequences like this: "You do not have to do anything if you do not want to. But you cannot choose what happens later. If you do not work, you will not learn to work. You'll grow up to be a bum. You will not be able to provide for your family. Nobody will want to marry you except a girl that is a bum herself." When he heard about the eternal consequences of being married to a bum he immediately sped up and ran with an honest effort to the finish. I hope he will remember this.
0.25 with Jacob in 2:32.
