PM: 6 miles
Today we ran a gully time trail, but with a twist. There were 3 teams, Thomas and Austin, Jackson and Tavin, and Ian, AJ, and me. The 1st team started and the 2nd team started 3 min after and the 3rd started 3 min after and the goal was to catch the team in front of you, but not get caught by the team behind you. I was on the 3rd team.
I loved this workout and it really taught pack running. I ran it in 41:45 which is pretty solid. During the run, we made a strategic plan: run the 1st mile @ 7:15 pace, 2nd @ 7:00, catch the teams on the road, and pass them after Shut Up Hill. Our first mile was a 7:15 mile, our second was a 6:30, we caught everybody on the road and then we passed them after shut up hill which was good. I feel like if I had gone alone, I could have gone faster and gotten a better time, but we had to stay with our team and cross somewhat together.
