A.M. Started with Jeff, his brother Andrew and his father Don. Dragged through the first mile in 9:20. Then sped up to 7:30 as Jeff needed to get to work. Don stayed with us up to almost 2 miles, then fell back. It was his sea-level 5 K race pace, and we were at 4500 feet. Andrew turned around at 3. We picked it up some more. It took a long time to catch the 8:00 guy, we passed him around 3.5. Then we kept the pace quick as we needed to finish 10.1 in 1:14. The fat mile helped the cause, we ran it in 5:46. Even though we did not do it quite right to be fat - opened with an 84 quarter, then got back to our senses. HR maxed out at 155, but was fairly stable around 152, which is normal. I felt decent. I even considered suggesting to Jeff that we just keep going at that pace all the way home, but decided to err on the side of caution. It was very tempting, though, to think that we'd be done with our run 3 minutes earlier.
Then in the last couple of miles I must have been getting dehydrated as HR climbed into 132 range at 7:00 pace, and then in the last quarter it was as high as 135 even though we were only going 6:48 pace. So in other words 5 beats too high. But other than the measurement I could not tell anything was different. Earlier in the run HR was normal at those speeds.Total time for 10.1 was 1:12:58.
Then 2 more with Benjamin in 17:19.
P.M. 2 with Jenny in 19:12. Julia ran 1.5 with us in 14:23. 0.5 with Joseph in 0.5.
