A.M. 3 with Benjamin, 2 with Jenny and Julia, 1 with Joseph, 0.5 with Jacob, then 6 alone with the last 3 at tempo pace. It was very wet, the trail was slippery, so the first two miles were slow, barely managed 11:43 because I had to slow down on wet parts. Then the last mile was better, and I gave it a push managing 5:36. The time for 3 miles was 17:19.
P.M. We did a 100 meter time trial for family home evening. Jacob did 26.5, Joseph 22.5, Julia's time got messed up, but was around 20, Jenny got 17.6, Benjamin's time got messed up but was around 15.0. He beat me - with street clothes and at the end of the day all I had was 15.6, which is not bad for me in those circumstances, but it was not good enough to beat him. On the second try we tied running 15.6 - I was coming from behind and had to lean at the end to avoid being beat again. I was very excited that Benjamin could run 15.0 at the age of 12 at the end of a rather cold day.. So I am estimating that he will end up with about 12.0 as an adult, and Jenny will probably be around 14.5. If those estimations hold, both will be world-class distance runners if they train right for long enough.
