Paced Cole on a track workout today.  He was doing 3 x 1000.  I planned on five, but his 3k pace is a little too hot for me right now.  I was toast after three.  Still getting back in shape.  At least I can help Cole.  2.5 mile warm up.  4 x 200.  3 x 1000 at 3:30 with 400 recovery.  We ran straight 3:28’s for all three.  1.5 cool down.  If  I had stuck 3:35-3:40, I could have done the 5-6 that I planned.  But, Cole got a good workout.

Incorporating the midweek mid-long run again.  9 by myself, then jogged Cole down to the school to run with the Tville high kids.  Jogged home.  I'm striving hard for consistency, but the run/rehearsal schedule is pretty exhausting. 7:11 average.

Turnover workout with Cole.  I warmed up 2.75.  I ran 15 in and out 200s.  I wanted Cole to do 12.  He’s not used to active recovery.  We split it into 2 sets of six with 3 minutes in between.  38-40 for fast 200s  About 70 seconds for recovery 200s.  1.2 mile cool down.

7.7 for me. 5.2 for Cole.

Planned on long run, but thrashed from last night’s dance rehearsal. So, long run tomorrow before Saturday rehearsal.

Terrible night’s sleep and aborted run for Cole because of sore shins left me far short of my plan today.  Some days are like that.
