Early in the morning ran 8 miles by my house a mile out and a mile back four times to stay flat. After 3 miles was 29 seconds behind the 6:40 guy, and noticed I was going steady 6:40 pace. Figured I'd get him on the last half if I have to. But it was not necessary - I naturally sped up to sub-6:40 pace, and caught him with 0.4 to go. Total time was 53:10. Last two miles 6:29 and 6:21. Heart rate counted for 10 seconds was 132.
In the afternoon ran with the kids. Ran some more during break in Benjamin's soccer game. They won 5-0. The opposing team had a great goalee, and held on quite well until the last quarter. Then with all the firepower (Ryan, Spencer, Benjamin and Josh) out on the offense they scored 4 goals to go from 1-0 to 5-0. Still unbeaten and unscored against.
Ran with Julia after the soccer game, and then a mile with Abby, Benjamin, and Julia and Joseph in the stroller.
