A.M. Started with the kids runs. Benjamin did 3 in 21:03 with the last mile in 5:43. That is his new PR. His splits were 89, 87, 87, 80. Half way through Benjamin's run we met Mike and he joined us. Then we ran 2 with Jenny and Julia - Jenny and Mike ran ahead and finished in 15:15 while I stayed with Julia, and our time was 17:30. Then 1 with Joseph, and 0.5 with Jacob. Then 3 more easy, and the last 3 in 16:47 with the last mile in 5:31 and the last quarter in 79. I had to beat Benjamin's last quarter, so I sandbagged a bit earlier to have some juice. With the "sandbagging" I still averaged 5:38 for the first two "steeplechasy" miles. Felt the legs were stronger, the stride was wider and more relaxed. Mike ran the tempo at 6;12 pace.
