8.28 mi, 1:16:50, 9:16 avg, elev gain 279 feet
8 x (300m uphill at 10k pace, 30 second rest, 300m downill at MP, 1:30 jog)
Tough run today but got it done! Similar run to two weeks ago but 8 repeats instead of 6. The 2 mile warm up was at a slower pace than last time. I was just going along slowly since I knew what was coming up.
Used the same hill as last time, corner of Sandy Hook and Lakeview, except for one of the repeats where I went up the hill on Village Way but that one does not go uphill far enough so the last third of it was more flat than hill (I used the Village Way hill since it was close to the pool's water fountain). 82 degrees at the end of the run.
In the afternoon watched Jacob run his debut cross country meet - a jamboree type event with Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Countryside, and Calvary Christian. Jacob ran 22:42 which gave him 10th for the team and 16th overall for the meet. He's only been running regularly for the last couple weeks with the team and with the track team running 800m event in the Spring, but before that it was soccer.
Thomas and Jacob will both be running at the meet in Lakeland this Saturday, with Thomas running varsity for Mitchell and Jacob running JV for Palm Harbor. Looking forward to watching them both.
