Today's scheduled 5 miler turned into a 3 and 4 miler. The man foolishly ate a huge pasta lunch just before we ran. He hasn't learned about the power drain digesting food can cause.
So that didn't help. And finally his surgery foot started to get sore. I think his form was bad because of the drain, which made him run like a clodhopper. That eventually was too much for the foot.
It's no major surprise. He was so excited about running that we were pushing too soon for him to run every other day. We'll increase a little more slowly next time.
I still got in a little extra though. 3 miles for him, and 4 miles for me. Yeah family!
