Woke up at 5:15. Did the usual morning routine, then hopped onto my bike. Rode a little bit over a mile for a warm up and parked my bike at the shopping plaza on 54 and Duck Slough. This morning was another "adventure run" - it's what I call it when I have to leave at a certain time run someplace to meet others at a certain time. I guess it's not much different from just driving over to meet some people but for some reason it seems a lot different.
I ran 1.5 miles to the Longleaf pool to meet David, Keith, Eric, and Jorge (others were "maybes" but ended up not showing up). We did 7 miles together on an out and back course up Starkey Blvd. On the return trip Eric ran ahead, then David and I picked it up for two miles for a 7:38 pace. Stopped and hung out for a bit but I wanted to try and be back by 8:00 so Jenny could meet up with her friend at the Y for weights. I got back to my bike for a total of 10 miles then got on it and rode home.
Average pace: 8:18
Jenny had just finished baking some delicious muffins with spelt four and blueberries - am I spoiled or what?
Also, "Trainer 2" is now a new pair of Asics Gel Equations (old trainer 2 mileage ended at 455 for the year)
PM - One mile with Jenny and the boys after dinner. We went out to eat at Sweet Tomatoes and saw a park on the way home that we hadn't been to in years. The boys played there a bit and then we ran on the trail there. It's marked out each 0.1 miles so we went 1/2 mile out and then came back. It was hot and everyone was still full from dinner but we got the job done!
