A.M. Ran 11 miles total. Benjamin did 4, Jenny and Julia 1, Joseph and Jacob 1 - cross country meet in the evening. Legs did not feel any huge effects from the half-marathon, but some problems showed in the workout, not sure if they were related. I did a 2 mile tempo run down the Provo Canyon. First mile was 5:15 and I felt reasonable enough to think the next will be at least 5:17. But I struggled in the second half and 5:22 was all I had and with a lot of effort. So 10:37.5 for the 2 miles.
I am wondering if when the muscle repairs power returns before the endurance. I have seen similar patterns before recovering after muscle breakdown where the speed was back immediately, but the endurance took some time to return. That goes along with the idea that an untrained muscle has a lot more power relative to endurance. So you would think that when a broken muscle fiber is repaired for a brief period of time it will behave like an untrained muscle.
P.M. Kids ran in the Kiwani's Park cross country meet. The distance was 1 K. Benjamin won overall with 3:06, Jenny was 6th in 13-14 with 4:14, Julia was 2nd in 11-12 with 4:32, Joseph won the 8 and under in 4:10, Jacob was 2nd in 8 and under with 4:34, and William was 6th in 8 and under with 6:00.
