Encouraging pain for others!
8mi. Double up on the hill sprints – I choose this because who wants to run the sprints the week right before a marathon? Not me!
I get Jen Q. interested in this idea, she runs the 2 warm up laps with me, then the first 3 miles. And when she sprints up- she does very well! John R. joins us for the final 4, and Matt K. for the last 2. On the last one up, they both take off way faster than me. John jokes that he didn’t want Paul to see me ahead of him on the interval hill sprint.
