40 minute run, it was nice and smooth, just a smidge faster than 7 minute pace.

Only had time for a quick run today, but I decided to do a mile repeat for the last mile. I went 5:42, which is great, but I didn't pace it too well, I started like sub 5:20 pace and faded to like 5:45, 5:50 towards the end. It was also tougher than I would have liked, but still nice to put some umph into a run.

Ran what I'll call the triple crown (the three peaks in thunderbird park). Despite the hills and rocky terrain, I averaged faster than 10 minute miles, so I'm happy about that. Nice to get on the trails.

Went 'splorin on some cool dirt roads north of the temple. It was super pretty, and absolutely perfect weather. The trails just kind of meandered in all directions, so it was fun to try a few different ones out. (the miles on the Timp trails are from a hike yesterday)

Met up with Michaela and Dan and Taylor and ran down to the park for a little speed workout. On the jog over, Michaela told us that we would be doing a 1 mile time trial. It went ok, I ran a 5:21, which was dissapointing to be honest. I was hoping for at least 5:20. It also was a little bit unsatisfying because I felt like I couldn't really push myself into that higher gear, or maybe I just wasn't willing to feel that pain. I mean, it was also on grass in a park, so I'm sure that slowed things down, and I didn't really have competition, but excuses aside, I should do better than that. After the mile we did 4x400 at just kinda a tempo run pace or something like that. I didn't time them. All in all though, I'm still grateful that I could come and do a workout with other people.

Ran down to the park and back. I've been loving listening to this book Shoe Dog, very interesting stuff.

Nice trail run this morning, just wanted to run for about an hour, and thats what I did. Had some armpit chaffing, so hopefully that is just a temporary thing, but I may need to invest in some vaseline

Went exploring in the surrounding neighborhoods, ran alonside this cool canal thing, the only down side was a stick with some needles on it stabbed through the rubber on my shoe and into my foot. Wow, AZ thorns are no joke.

Did some more exploring in the desert. Love running out there, just wish it was a shorter drive.

Nice little run... the weather was cool, but it was sunny and you could tell it was going to heat up. It's really hard to describe it exactly, but that feeling reminded me of countless morning runs and practices and it was just a strangely nostalgic feeling. Good run though
