A.M. 12 miles. 5 with Benjamin. Joseph did 1. Jacob 0.5. Jenny and Julia ran 3 with Sarah. In the early miles I ran 0.75 in 3:59, and it felt harder than it should have.
Benjamin and I ran into Jeff Coombs. I decided to surprise Benjamin with a fast 0.5 and challenged him and Jeff to follow me at about 5:20 pace. Benjamin's assignment was to learn to draft without feeling panicked about being dropped. I took them through a quarter in 81, then picked it up and ran the next one in 76, so 2:37 for 0.5. This time 5:04 pace felt a whole lot better, I felt like I could keep it for a while. Amazing how much having company makes the pace feel easier, even if you are leading.
P.M. 2 miles.
