I was within a second each time. Rich, my running partner for the day, helped pace us like clockwork. The point was to increase our VO2 max.
Overall, even with the wind and a tired sense in my legs, I felt OK. My form wobbled some, but in general, things were good.
So hot, I declared that the world needed to seeing my bright shining white body, to which Jim replied, "Welcome to distance running weather."
Jim, by the way, recounted lap by lap a 3000 he ran, with complete splits. Amazing memory. And, for some reason, was wearing funky yellow fencing shoes.
Rich, like Frank, started running later. He was 38, without much of a clue as per what the details of running were about.
Jim gave us Asics keychains that look like little shoes.
