Wednesday, I ran with Dave. It wasn't much of a run for me but progress for him. We ran the straight aways and walked the curves. I couldn't even get a good iphone picture because he was moving too fast.
Thursday, I was too busy to workout.
Friday, I met Jen after work to run a short 2.5 miles. We didn't run our normal run for a variety of reasons but one was the heat and the second was I was meeting Dave after to walk to loop with him. It was so hot when we ran. We were dying. I couldn't believe how awful the sun was. We went at the worst time of day or something.
As soon as we were done running, I started my run with Dave. We were on our way but he was still sore from our run Wednesday so wasn't wasn't so fun for him. Walking weird because of his hamstring ended up making his back hurt. At 1.75 miles when he started complaining I said we should turn around. He said no. Then around 2.33 miles we stopped walking and sat in the grass. There were no benches. We tried to find a bench but walked half a mile and there were none. After we got up from the grass, he told me I should run to the car and come back and get him. So that's what I did. By this point it felt a lot cooler. It was just as hot but the sun wasn't beating down on me. The run was much easier by this point and I was even more tired.
Dave walked while we ran. Dave said he came up with a new way to walk faster and he wasn't kidding. I have no idea what he did before or what he does now but that's a pretty fast walking pace for him.
At the end of the run Ibrahim and I had 2:03 and 2:06 splits. The one before that was a little longer because we got up a ramp and there was a fence. He decided to jump it but I went back around. Even with speeding up, I still cut it entirely too close getting home and getting my shower before heading out.
The weather was perfect. The trail was nice along the river too. I didn't even mess up driving there.
