This morning Juliana and I met dark and early for another track workout. I'm saving myself for speed work with the group on Thursday, but didn't want to pass up the opportunity to run at the PRIVATE! NO TRESPASSING! track with some company. It turns out we had more company than we bargained for when a little fox came out to play. He was just hanging out on the track, watching us run around and around. We tried in vain to scare him off, but he wanted to stick around. He was harmless and playful; A couple of times he pulled J's shirt and water bottle off the bench, dragging it across the ground. Too bad neither of us had our cameras!
I decided to run some moderately-paced, controlled intervals of 2000 metres (5 laps) with just enough recovery in between to grab some water. I finished them off in 9:58, 9:51, 9:37 (average interval pace = 4:54/KM = 7:53/mi) while J ran her own workout, and we finished off 10.5K to start the day.
