Another short day.  Morning run with Cole.  My legs are starting to freshen up, but I still need more sleep.  Insomnia is not my friend.

Ran a recovery run with Cole after his 3k cross country race last night.  He is in really good shape.  He ran 6:28 at the 2k last week (5:13 pace).  Last night he won the 3k with a 10:23.  It was a much tougher course.  I'm curious to see if he could break 10:00 during a cross country 3k.  He has a 4K in two weeks, a 3k at the Border Wars Meet, and a 4K at state. It's his last year on the youth team. I'm excited to watch him in high school next year.

I was super lazy this morning and didn't want to run in the freezing cold.  I only ran with the Race Cats. I paced Group 2 on 7 x 400.  Mostly around 1:30.  Last one in 1:21.  All on grass

PM: Cole has to run this afternoon. I joined him for 5.3. He ran 6.
