Catch me in the first lap

5 mi. When you miss a few of these track interval sessions, things change. I wasn’t sure if the onand off rain would ruin the workout – a glance at the radar showed that we should be clear for the next hour to run. I arrived early and spoke with Paul and Dave Garfield. I also learned Gary had to cancel out of the Grandma’s Marathon dur to some new concerns from his cardiologist. I hope he’s cleared to chase his passion soon!

We did short and long intervals, most times I was running 3rd behind Seth and another triathlete that knows me but I’m not keen on who he is. He always shadowed me and then ran hard the last 100m. Our run was good, Paul asked us in the first 1200m to run at a 10k pace, then on the second 1200m to run a 5k pace and to “catch him in the first lap.” Hardly ever possible! He also calle out our last run to be the ‘stretch down Boyleston Street” we get when we finish on the last 100m straighaway. Fun!

Francine leaves today for a half marathon in Yellowstone Park, Steven England popped into the workout later in the run and my left hamstring is not right.
