Went to the Provo Canyon for speedwork. Warm up. Strides with ankle weights (4x100) up 20.0 down 18.6 up 19.3 down 17.8. Then 12x400 down with 200 recovery. Total time 13:52.1 average of 69.3. Slowest 70.6 ( 1/3 uphill), fastest 67.9 (last). Last 200 about 32.7.
Tried to run more or less relaxed, go fast, but not be extremely anaerobic.
Saw Ed Eyestone running on the trail. Did not get to talk to him, though, as our paths did not quite overlap. He looked like he was going quite fast, but also it looked like he had to work. I suppose he is trying to get back in shape.
Ran with the kids in the evening. Played a game with Julia after Benjamin and Jennifer's run - Julia ran a quarter in 3:03, and then we were chasing the imaginary 8:00/mile guy for the remaining 1.25 miles as she and Joseph sat in the stroller. Without a stroller, it is no big deal to close a minute or so on 8:00 pace in a mile, but the extra weight made it an interesting challenge. We passed him with 0.2 miles to go, and beat him by 19 seconds. I was able to stay relaxed enough to where this did not feel like a tempo, though.
