A.M. Did a 400 meter time trial with Benjamin on the track at Orem High. Took him through the first 200 in 31, then let him take over to see if he could drop me, but he got a bit complacent and did a 17 for the next 100, so we were 48 at 300. After that both of us tried to accelerate, but had a hard time shifting gears. So we ended up with 64.8. Next time we try this, I'll just have him try to outrun me in the last 100. Nevertheless, it was a good result for speed given that we have not worked on this distance at all, and he is only 13 years old.
Then we paced Jenny through an 800 meter time trial. It started with some confusion. I told her to go through the first 400 in 90, and then if she could not keep the pace run the best that she could. She went through the 400 in 90 and then stop because she felt she could not hold 90 anymore. So we clarified the confusion, gave her some time to rest, and made the best of the situation. Now she was too tired to go with the plan A, so we did the plan B. First lap in 95 or so, and then try to hold it. She was too scared and ran 98. Then I told her she could break Joseph's record if she sped up, and she did closing in 94 with the total time of 3:12. This is the first PR in distances 800 or longer that she got in over two years.
Then we ran home and ran with other kids. Julia, and Joseph did 2, Jacob did 1. Benjamin total of 6. I added 6 more after that for the total of 12.
P.M. 0.5 with William.
