Birthday was great and SUU b team did very well at uvu, my best bro Jake is killing it and took 5th overall and 3rd on our b team, he's at low mileage and coming back from injury so he's looking good for the season. Our team is so deep this year, can't wait to see the top guys in action in a few weeks. Koy, Nate, Jake, Jiraa, Sage and all our guys did very well!!

Finally starting to run again. I'm on my own until I'm 100% healthy. But I'm not on my own cause I've started going to the gym with Haley! So that's been fun. Picked it up to 15 mph for a little.

Another good run the tread mill I used today only went up to 12.5 so I just did that for 1:30-2:00 mins or so in place of the usual pick up.

Got a little under a 3rd of a mile at 15mph and then was having asthma problems still kind of there from last night so I just did a little more easy running to finish my short run. I'm hoping to come back and do our home meet in October, but I will need to be up to 4-5 miles per day at least to do that. I'm doing high intensity low volume, feet don't seem to care how hard I run as much as how many steps I take. Hopefully will get back to the team soon.

2 miles in 10:50, sped up to 4:48 pace for the last quarter of the first mile and then decided I wanted a fast 2nd mile as well. High intensity low volume is my only way to get in decent shape right now, and with only a year and a half of college left, this is probably my last push to run some fast times in college. Really didn't feel bad at all, felt like I could have done another mile at that pace without trouble. So good stuff! Cooled down a little and then did weights. School is going very well, excited about research.

Started in 5:50ish and then dropped to under 2:30 for the first half of the next mile and cruised to 5:17 for the 2nd mile. Feeling alright, not sure if I'm going to race color country.
