XC/meet-5.5 We had our meet today to see who is on varsity and what times we have at the start of the season. Kyler asked if I'd pace him for a 16:45, and I agreed. We did our first 400 in 1:12, and that was too fast and I think it took a bit too much out of him for the first part. After that I slowed down to pace him better, but he still looked to be moving at a good pace. At the mile we were 5:25, and Tyson went from 3 seconds behind to running with me. We hit the canal for the second time and Kyler fell off pace. At mile 2 we were 11:00 (5:35 for this mile) and Tyson was starting to slow a little. I then decided to push the last bit when we hit the canal the third time. I hit the track for the last time and timed my last 300m. I ended up being 47 for it, so I'm pretty happy about that. Tyson was 17:07, so it was a good day for him. No one really had the race they were hoping for, but it was still good to have a meet to see where we're at before Highland.
PM-5 easy miles. My iPod ran out of battery halfway through. I didn't feel as fresh as I did this morning.
