I’m supposed to do a 30/30 fartlek tomorrow with Sean so I took it easy except for mile 4. I also ran last night, had 4.5 hours sleep, then woke up for this run. So I had short rest. Physically I was struggling a little until an older guy came along moving at around 6:5x pace. I thought to myself maybe I could tag behind this guy and get this run over quicker. The funny thing is he decided to increase his pace all the way down to 6:15 pace. I said what the heck, better than grinding along at 7:30 pace. So that’s what I did until he wore himself out and then it was back to 7:30 pace. I’m thinking he probably didn’t appreciate me tagging along behind him. Oh well, he got my legs warmed up and the run became less of a struggle after the boost.
