A.M. Mike came today. It was a nice birthday present to have him back. We ran with the kids - 6.5 total, 3 with Benjamin, 2 with Jenny and Julia, 1 with Joseph, and 0.5 with Jacob. Then he ran with me to the start of the usual tempo, and I did the tempo alone as Mike was running out of fuel. Ended up with 16:58 with the last mile in 5:34. It has now been over 3 weeks since I've been doing those daily tempos and I am still alive. That is a new development. I wonder where it will take me.
