AM: Warmups, form mile, and another 2 laps warmup while waiting for the guys to get back from warmup. Started with 2 laps warmup on the track then went straight into 80%, 3 laps on the track then out to Home Depot. I started a bit quick, still not very familiar with pacing haha. Legs were a bit heavy and sore but I was feeling good. Ran with Brighton until the overpass (don't think she was feeling great but it was nice to be able to stick on her) then I hit a wall after the slight downhill (only downhill). I just tried to zone out and keep going at that point. The last quarter on that long stretch always gets me. Got stopped at the light for about 30 seconds, Emma and Josie were up with me then. Thought we were supposed to finish sooner than we did, it's been a while, so I picked it up early. Then saw it was farther, settled again until we were closer and was able to shift into a kick again, which I'm happy about because before my mission I never could shift gears. 20:06 for just under 3 miles, which I think is good for my first time back. I worked hard and that's what's important. Then whistle hills, I think 3 sets of 15, 20, 25 seconds but I'm not sure. Worked hard on those too. 2 miles cool down back to the track.
PM: 3 miles easy.
