After 4.5 miles (8 min pace) Sasha paced me for 2 in 12:25 (6:04, 6:21). Struggled after 0.75.

35:42. I had a little cold and it was hard getting started in the morning. Running before work made the day a lot better though.

After 2 mile warmup Sasha paced me for 2 miles in 12:05 (he went ahead). I did 5:58 and 6:07. Even though I had a cold I didn't cough, I think it is because I didn't push myself so my lungs weren't as stressed.

I realized that I am not pushing as hard as I used to. On a workout I would usually push so hard I couldn't walk for a bit, now I don't try to kill myself. Maybe I should start killing myself again.

At home by myself did 1:03:19. Last quarter was 72. This was the first time I ran my full mileage after a 10 hour work day! Still rested/procrastinated though, and finished at 11 pm. It snowed about 4 inches and I am getting tired of soggy socks. I wasn't really running on the snow, but it was strange that it was so hard to go faster than 8 min pace. I feel like I have been getting slower lately.

48:54 in the morning. This run was mentally torturous. I hate running in mile loops. I didn't have enough time to do 8, and I did not feel like torturing myself later.

1 mile warmup in 9:15. I think I got a 100 meter PR for the stride: 14.03. Did 3x1000 at the track by myself. 3:39, 3:45, 3:47. I thought I would be able to to hold the 3:39, but I guess I am not as fit as I thought. This is the first time being back on the track in a while, I should do this workout more. My pain tolerance has gotten lower so I don't kick as hard. I am very afraid of making myself tired from a workout. I used to use every bit of energy till I felt sick, now I barely feel bad after a workout. The last 200 meters was 45, which I know I could do better. I ran around 6 miles in Salem in 49:45.

Gideon did 0.25 in 2:18. I did 6 in 47:55 it felt so hard to keep 8 min pace. One hour later did 2 in around 16:00, can't remember. The last quarter was 82 I think.

1:06:26. It was very windy, but it was 50 degrees! I hate running by my house so much that sometimes I forget that I love running. There are many things I can complain about, but I just need to be more grateful. It's funny how running is really the only thing that makes me stressed, but is also the only thing that makes me not stressed. I didn't procrastinate as much becuase my brother Tim encouraged me to quit being so dramatic, and get my butt out the door.

Just me and William did 10 in the canyon with a 2 mile workout. 1 mile warm up in around 8:50. The 2 miles were 12:14. The first 0.25 was 86, the mile was 6:00. Kicked in 90. William got about 12:12. He wanted to be nice and stay with me.
We did 7 in around 58:45. William talked the whole time, he kept me very entertained. I thought I was going to break 12:00, especially it being 45 degrees. Maybe something is wrong. I feel like I am just getting slower. I really need to be smarter with my diet though. I also need to focus and be intentional in running.

I am so happy to be back in the canyon! 8 miles with Jacob and Sasha in 1:03:15.

It was 60 degrees!! With some headwind did 2 in the canyon in 12:24 I think. Did it with Sasha, Matthew, and William. William stayed with me, but Sasha and Matthew got 12:16. I fell back after 1.25. Something is not right, I feel there shouldn't be a reason for me to be consistently slower. I know I am not sleeping as much and maybe not eating quit right.

Did the rest of the miles with Sasha, around 8:10 pace. I did the last half mile with leigha when we got home. She got 5:15.

Around 1:02:00. Today gave me some hope that I will start improving soon. It was pouring rain, but not too cold. After 4 easy miles up the canyon Sasha paced me for 2 in 12:23 (6:05, 6:18). I think this was very good because we were drenched and tired, and I had run a workout just yesterday. However, I got more sleep, which made a huge difference. I think the main problem is simply not enough sleep.

33:39. Did not want to run mentally after working all day. Sometimes when you do too many things you hate life just sucks. I love running but not after working.

After a 2 mile warmup (more like a cool-up, very cold and windy) did 2 miles fast. I got 12:01! (5:58, 6:03, quarter kick was 89). This is the fastes in 2 months. I got more sleep so that helped. The 10 year old Matthew still beat me though. He got 11:58. Even though I improved a bit I still think something is a wrong; the energy I had today could do a lot more before. But, I am also not pushing myself as hard on the last half mile. I am more afraid of going all out because I don't want to feel pain after. After 2 miles easy I did another mile in 5:49. I didn't feel horrible after. The rest of the miles were around 8:30 pace.

Somehow yesterday I hurt my right knee. I didn't do anything but it probably got overused running about 12 miles and then going to a dance recital. I can't bend it or move it very well, it is very unstable. I will be surprised if I can run tomorrow because it is hard to walk.

1:03:54. I am very surprised that my knee problem wasn't as bad as I thought! Yesterday it was very unstable and a could barely use it. Today it was a little unstable but I had no problem running! Today was very wet, got another nature shower.

2 in 17:43 with Mimi, then 0.5 in 4:15 with Leigha. She got a PR and lost her shoe on the kick! 1 with Bella in 9:25, then 4 with the little boys in 31:04. 1 by myself in 7:36. Today my quads are extremely sore. I don't know why because I didn't do anything crazy; maybe the hurt knee made them sore. My left foot arch was strained. Very painful easy run today. My knee is 100% better though.

I did one squat last night and it completely ruined my knee. Didn't get much sleep because of the pain. All day my knee was locked and I was unable to bend it even a bit. Couldn't go to school or do anything. Sasha was prompted to tell me to use the message gun on the surrounding muscles. I was able to bend it after that for a minute then it got super tight again and locked up.

After a very painful 24 hours of literally not bending my leg in the slightest, I was able to fully bend my knee this morning! I limped around most of the day but by night I could walk without limping! Still can't run though. I can't put any weight on the knee while it is bent. The massage gun also helped a lot.

In the morning I happily woke up with no limp, and was able to take Ceci to the bus stop and jog slowly back (about 100 meters). I walked a lot for an hour and then my knee was getting worse so I had to stop. I still worked all day but with a limp.

17:45 with Sasha, Mary, and William. They kicked quite ahead and I couldn't really go faster. I feel so lazy, and horrible for not exercising. All I want to do is run! I felt confident I could do more, but after those 2 it was getting a little worse. I did a limp jog to keep weight off it. I didn't do anything bad though and went the whole day without limping. I still think it is definitely injured, I keep on forgetting though because I am not in pain really. First day I can go on the stairs like normal.

It feels like I never even had a knee injury, nothing feels weird at all. I ran a tiny bit and my form was normal with no limp. I am going absolutely crazy not running! I can't wait to run again!

1:09:29 on snow, it is still winter I guess. I am so happy to run again! I was going crazy. My knee felt completely normal.

2 with Sasha and Preston in 16:37. I tried to outkick Preston but he beat me just barely. Did 8 with Sasha and Joseph in 1:02:31. Did a kick from the middle of the hill in 19. My knee is completely normal still, except for my left foot arch has been bothering me. Almost 60 degrees today! Also first day wearing my new multi colored crocs. My purple ones had just over 1000 miles.
At night I took Leigha for a half mile in 5:27.

1:01:09. It was 55 degrees, partly cloudy. This was the most pleasant, enjoyable run I have ever been on. It felt more peaceful than sleeping! Except for my quads were very sore. After the run my quads got extremely sore.

30:47 with Sasha and the 3 youngest boys. My right quad is so sore it might be injured. It hurts with every step. It was probably stressed from the knee injury. I am sick today and my lungs and heart feel very week, and I am achy. William decided to do a pickup after seeing the girl's xc team. He even took off his jacket to hopefully impress them as we passed. I could barely hold on to his pace.

33:05 at night. My right quad hurts but is not that bad. I am not sick today! I was going to taper for the half Marathon tomorrow but that got canceled because of snow. I am actually thankful it got canceled because these 2 weeks have been the hardest all year and I am not ready after being injured.
