55 is a great number

55 sign5 miles. Today was our seasonal first taste of cooler weather, our starting temp was 55 degrees at the Benjamin Track. Paul and Tim wore long sleeve shirts and cycling skullcaps. Two gals had on prior year Classics By the Sea shirts.

Our PBRR Fall Social was last night at Twisted Trunk Brewery. Although I didn’t have too much beer, the up later than usual and beer with pizza had me burping through several of the intervals. I stayed as close as I could to James Carpenter for each interval. He specializes in the shorter distances. On a 400m, he was almost 100m ahead of me. I worked to keep within 100m of him on the 600m, 800m, and 1200m jaunts.

Hamstring warms to perform

5mi. Today was again, like last week, cooler than the weather should be for mid June. 82 and humid is what I should get at track, instead it was 74 degrees. I ran behind Seth, Steve Monks, a new runner named John and  the same guy from last week whose name I don’t know.

Paul kept us on 500s and 300s, no one guessed the final 800m to finish. I felt my left hamstring sore in a low, “bass” like fashion, but I don’t think it kept me from going the speed I wanted to keep. I ran next to a recovering Hari for some of the intervals. He is 37 years old. Once he’s back healthy, I won’t be able to match his speed!
