It&#39;s his last year on the youth team. I&#39;m excited to watch him in high school next year.</p> Thu, 22 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 21, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-21-2020.html <p>AM: &nbsp;9 mile run, hard tempo last three. &nbsp;7:22, 7:01,6:46,7:05,6:52,7:02,6:32,6:10,5:54 (6:45 average). &nbsp;9.2 total.</p> <p>PM: 2 miles chasing Race Cats around the cross country course.</p> Wed, 21 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 20, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-20-2020.html <p>Five with Cole. &nbsp;The rest solo. &nbsp;I have a tickle in my throat. &nbsp;I hope it doesn&#39;t progress into &nbsp;sickness. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 20 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 19, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-19-2020.html <p>AM: Easy morning run. &nbsp;I&#39;m not looking forward to cold weather next week. &nbsp;Ladder workout with the Race Cats tonight. &nbsp;6.4 miles</p> <p>PM: Race Cats Workout. &nbsp;I paced Group 2, so it wasn&#39;t too hard for me. &nbsp;It is fun to teach the kids how to pace. &nbsp;3.6 miles</p> Mon, 19 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Sat, Oct 17, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-17-2020.html <p>Five solo and 8 with Cole and Tee. &nbsp;7:21 average. &nbsp;Aiming for the big 6-0 for mileage next week.</p> Sat, 17 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 16, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-16-2020.html <p>Felt quick and snappy today, so I threw down some quicker miles. &nbsp;7:11, 6:56,6:54,6:53,6:34,6:44,6:29,5:44. 6:41 average.</p> Fri, 16 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 15, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-15-2020.html <p>Tired legs. &nbsp;But, I got to run in sunlight.7:07 average.</p> Thu, 15 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 14, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-14-2020.html <p>AM: 20 minute warm up. &nbsp;10 x 2 minutes on/off. &nbsp;Short cooldown. 8.5 miles. 6:52 average.</p> <p>PM:1.5 miles running around course cheering for Race Cats at their meet.</p> Wed, 14 Oct 2020 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 13, 2020 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-13-2020.html <p>5 with Cole. &nbsp;Last part solo.
