80s, clear, dry
mind/body - good
Jaxon went with me again this morning. It took a little more bribing today because it meant he had to get out of bed and get ready.... normal kid right? On the way over I explained to Jaxon that I would probably not be able to talk that much so I would just answer with 'yes' and 'no'. He carried a backpack with water and Gatorade but was way too far ahead to know I wanted some. Most of this route is flat or down so he was just coasting along and at one point said "this is so much fun, isn't it Dad?" Well.... I had to answer yes but inside I was dying just a little bit.
At any rate, the run went pretty much as expected. My goal was 6:13 pace, which was my 50K pace at Caumsett. I ended up with a time of 56:26, which is 6:16 pace. I'm happy but it wasn't as comfortable as I wanted it to be. Lots of work yet to be done... as in speed work.
This will make you laugh:
