XC- Most of the people I run with on the XC team are taking a week off so they feel great during the season, so I was running alone for most of this run. During the first mile I pushed it to catch up to Dylan. I stayed with him during the next 3. He was going slower because of his knee, but he would increase his pace a bit whenever his knee felt better. When we hit the turn around point I told them I was going to push til the end and ended up running the rest a bit slower than I wanted and also by myself. alright tempo run.
