Ran a 2:00 fartlek workout with Luke today.

Warmed up to 11th ave, started the first interval at Center st to Virginia. Was surprised to stay as close as I did to Luke (3 secs). Ran the next 5 on the regular course and again stayed very close to Luke. Last one across Guardsman way. Luke pulled away a bit more. Pulse at the end was 173. I had plenty more to give in the heart and lungs, nothing but pain in the legs.

I am a bit worried about the workout, however. Either I am getting my speed back (good) or Luke is getting slower (very bad).

Ran an hour + run with Luke. Did a light version of the city loop. Pace was very slow...7:00? 7:30? Didn't keep track. Didn't even wear a watch. Luke was very patient.

Ran cruise intervals with Luke and Parker.

Warmed up 3 miles around liberty park. Did some strides and drills to further loosen my extremely tight legs.

Started cruise interval at 5:45 pace, dropping to 5:30 quickly. Luke dropped me right away. Parker stayed an even 30 seconds behind.

After 1:00 recovery the second interval was more consistent than the first. Decided to run 5 secs slower to allow Parker to latch on. Pace was a bit fast for him, but he hung on. That kid is going to be good after he gets his mileage up.

Cooled down 2 miles frantically trying to get back to daycare to pick up the boy on time.

Legs feeling a bit better.

Am-Ran an easy 4 miler to attempt to loosen the legs up. No luck. I feel like the tin man after a rain storm. Stomach really in bad shape today.

PM-Stomach too rough to get out. Got on bike for the equivalent of 4 miles. Had to have a bathroom within 10 steps.
