Ran with Jamie and Cynthia and some on my own. I missed getting up in time to meet them at Diane's house but met them in Starkey Park (Cynthia texted me wondering where I was, that was my second alarm). So, we ran together from the shelter out a couple more miles then I turrned around with them and I ran almost to Diane's house before I turned around again and ran back to the shelter in Starkey Park.
I was feeling pretty good on this run. We weren't going fast but sometimes that still feels hard if battling chronic dead legs which today I was not. The easy pace felt easy.
When I turned back for the solo return I picked up the pace a little bit until finally doing 7:44 for the last mile.
A pretty good week running wise.
Next, I drove out to King High School in Tampa to watch Thomas compete. He ran the 3200m and was able to beat his old PR from Wednesday by another 9 seconds. He went out at 1:12 for the first lap which was 7 seconds faster than his first lap on Wednesday and was still able to pick up two additional seconds. Last lap was 1:22 which was about 5 seconds faster than his last lap on Wednesday. New PR of 11:07! So proud of him.
Next, I drove out with Jessica to Orlando to watch Sophia compete in gymnastics, glad I was there to cheer her on.
We wrapped up the day by stopping at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa on the way back - I did not gamble, just had dinner and listened to the band they had that night (Stereo FM).
Long but good day.
