Had company today for my hard run, Joe ran with me, starting from Longleaf. It was cooler this morning, not yet chilly but at least cool enouogh to not be warm at the start (although would be kind of warm on the return trip). We warmed up with 2 miles easy, out and back from the little church. Then headed out for the repeats.
I had to make a brief pit stop shortly into the run, told Joe to go ahead, then had to make a second stop because my shoe was loose and it was aggravate the heel of my right foot, so figured I'd make one more quick stop. Got going again and did not stop again until finishing the three miles. Caught up to Joe finally just after two miles.
First three mile repeat: 7:09, 7:06, 6:53
Rested and jogged a little and looked to see if Joe was nearby, decided he must have turned around early. Got going again and this time did a little bit better both pace-wise and not stopping.
Second three miles: 7:02, 6:56, 6:51
Stopped back at my car for fresh drinks in my handheld then did two easy miles in Longleaf for the warm down. Went kind of slow, right foot bothering me a little. I shouldn't have worn these older GoMeb shoes and stuck with the Brooks Launch instead, oh well.
But, pretty good run overall with 2 out of 3 hard runs finished for this week.
