We had only about 20 to 30 minutes. The total lake run with once around is about 2.37 miles. My friend broke it up into only 2 intervals which surprised me. I thought he would take more intervals.
Afterward he said, “When you have someone with you, you push yourself more.” He didn’t know it, but mentally I’d been planning for an easier run. He pushed me along too even though I’d been running more regularly and longer distances at faster paces.
