Today should have been a 7-mile tempo run. However, I decided to run at the all-ages track meet tonight, so I needed to take it easy. 5 simple miles to keep the legs loose for later.
The meet is definitely kid-oriented, so there’s not the standard slate of events. There may not be much competition either, but I’m gonna blast the 1600 like it’s the Olympics. In terms of my training, one really hard mile isn’t a fair trade for 7 comfortably hard tempo miles, but I’m doing fine and it’s still relatively early. Just need to not strain anything in the process.
My kids have been with my parents all week, so I’m trying to get them to bring the kids to the meet too so they can do a few events. The one that looks the most fun is the family 4x100. If I can convince my dad to run a leg, we would have enough. I think it would be a lot of fun for the boys to run a real relay with a baton and everything. Stay tuned.
