Ran 2.25 in the morning to pick up the station wagon (Zhu) from Computune. Then ran 10.04 miles in the afternoon in 1:03:19 with 2x2.5 tempos in the middle on the standard 5 mile tempo parts. First one was 14:34, HR stabilized at 151 with occasional bursts to 155. On the second, got 14:31. HR stabilized at 153, then drifted up to 159 on the last mile, which is uphill at 0.5 grade, and then I cheated on the last 200 (40 seconds) to get a negative split, and it maxed out at 163. Last mile in the tempo was 5:46.
Kept a good pace before, in between, and after the tempos, which helped give a decent time for the entire run. Ran with the kids later in the afternoon.
Yesterday Benjamin solved 3 math problems from the SAT test. This is a good sign. He should be able to handle the whole thing by the time he is 10. We need to work on his geometry skills.
