A.M. Ran 5 miles with Benjamin in 35:44. He ended up setting a 5 mile PR on accident since his old PR was rather weak and was set in the middle of a 10 K 3 years ago. Then did 1.5 with Joseph. Jenny ran 1.5, Julia did 2. Jacob ran 0.5. I did hill sprints afterwards with Tyler. It was nice to have Tyler around for those as he was a sprinter in high school with 11.0 100 meters PR. We went to the same stretch where I did those on Wednesday, about 60 meters long at maybe a 6% grade - need to measure it. At first it seemed that I was stuck at 9.8. But then I decided to start focusing on Tyler as a visual cue to indicate if I was running faster or slower while adjusting my form and power timings. This gave me a breakthrough. At first I ran a couple of 9.7s, then 9.5, and the last one in 9.4.
Total distance was 11.5 miles.
