A.M. 20.38 with Jeff (until the last mile when he dropped me). Total time was 2:10:22. The goal was to get a quick 20 in without having to get up too early before Benjamin's track meet with minimum damage and maximum training effect. So figured 6:40 pace for 15 miles, then 5:45 - 6:00 to the finish. Which is pretty much what we did, except Jeff threw in a couple of surges to sub 5:30 pace in the middle of the last 5 miles, and then dropped me in the last mile running a 5:14 on an uphill mile with turns and bridges. I managed a 5:43. Total time for the last 5.09 was 29:20, 5:46 pace.
Benjamin ran the 800. I hoped he would break 2:40 or at least be close, but he blew it with the opening 100 in 17. He still won the race in 2:52 with the splits of 37 - 46 - 47 - 42. We are going to practice pacing with me running far enough behind to where I am not controlling it. He does not yet know how to pace himself when he is racing other kids.
P.M. 0.5 with Joseph. 0.25 with Jacob.
