Got a pleasant surprise text from Devra that she is in town and wanted to run with me! Aaron is out of town so I had a babysitter from 7:15-9:30 a.m. Instead of asking Devra to drive 75 minutes to Boulder Reservoir to run with my workout group, I had her meet me at the dry creek path in Westminster which is 30 minutes closer to where she was staying and just 15 minutes in the opposite direction for me.
She was a huge help and pulled me through an almost 5-mile tempo. 6:14, 6:24 (uphill), 6:00 (downhill), 6:20, 6:15 pace. The last mile actually ended at .7 of a mile because my calf pulled and I had to stop. Argh. I hate it when that happens. Its the same spot where it pulled a few months ago and I had to cross train for two weeks. As soon as I felt it come on, I told Devra I needed to stop and we jogged back to the car. I'm bummed because I was really hoping to run the Classic 10K next Saturday, but if it still hurts, I'll have to scratch that idea. Going in to see Richey on Monday for some therapy.
