Eric still had a sore calf, so George and I went without him on the dirt trail. After we got back, I did my 45 s slow, 15 s fast fartlek for a mile with ankle weights. Did the mile in 6:51, but cheated starting my last fast part with 100 to go. Afterwards, ran a tempo loop (2.11) in 12:23. Felt good on the uphill, but then the quads started cramping up a bit, and I started feeling I was working too hard for this slow of a pace. I wonder if the problem is the tension in the muscle impeding the blood flow. That is what it intuitively feels to be.
Ran with Benjamin and Jennifer, and did my always on the run for the total of 13 miles for the day.
