After dealing with consistent hip injuries from my freshman year of college (2018) to my junior year (2021), I have been determined to stay injury free, and enjoy training to become the best runner I can be. Dealing with previous injuries so much taught me that persistence is key, and to never give up. Had I given up, I may never have made this log.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Finally break 15 in the 5k (on the road and on the track)

PR in an indoor 3k.

Focus on recovery and run slow on easy days. 

Run consistent high-mileage weeks.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

-To stay consistent, dedicated, injury-free, have fun, and get faster.

 

Personal:

Just concluded my sixth year of cross country at Edinboro University. I graduate with my master's in corporate communication with a focus in digital marketing in mid-january, 2024. 

I am going to keep training in hopes to qualify for the olympic trials in the marathon or half-marathon someday. Until then, let's run.

AM- 10.21

Early morning with a smaller group of guys. Took a while to wake up but once I did, I felt pretty good. Finished this up with 6x100 meter strides, hurdle drills, and a lift.
 

Total Distance
17.10

AM: 12.10- warmup was around 2.5 miles and cooldown was around 1.5 miles.

Workout was 20x400 @71-70, split into 4x(5x400) w/ equal rep rest and 3 min jog set rest. I felt pretty smooth as this was a bigger session on the indoor track (too many laps aggrevate my hips), but I felt fine. It felt good to get into a rhythm with the 10k guys.

PM: 5 mile double. Legs didn't feel too bad even though I had to rush this because of night class.

Total Distance
9.01

AM- 9.01

A solo recovery run early before work. Legs did not feel great but I kept it rather slow.

Total Distance
10.30

AM- 10.3

Sluggish this morning as it was cold and I was a bit tired. Ran our normal loop with a bigger group of guys. 6x100 meter strides after. 

Total Distance
15.12

AM: 10.01 miles

W got off to a slow start with Nick because it was so windy and cold. It got better on the way back. My legs felt a bit tired but otherwise, I felt good. Did a lift after.

PM: 5.12 miles

Tested out my new Nike invincibles and they felt pretty good. It was snowing pretty heavily and was also very icy. It's safe to say the long run/workout may be on the treadmill tomorrow am.

Total Distance
16.00

AM: Longrun workout on the treadmill due to the ice outside. Warmed up 6 miles in 43 minutes and then went right into:

2 miles in 10:26 (5:14/5:12)

1 mile off @ 6:15

2 miles in 10:08 (5:04/5:04)

1 mile off @ 6:15

4x90 seconds on @4:45-4:43/90 seconds off @6:25

2 miles cooldown in 14:55

felt smooth and controlled which was surprising given it was a furnace in the training room. Easy recovery tomorrow to hit around 80 for the week.

Total Distance
8.15

AM: Just over 8 miles easy after the conclusion of my cross season a couple of days ago. Bittersweet ending to 6 years of competitive running. However, we are keeping the dream alive, one run at a time. 

Total Distance
12.03

PM: 12 miles

*Attempt at 10x3min on/2off.

Only made it to 8 running the ons around 5:20 pace and the offs around 6:10 pace.

My legs are still thrashed from the weekend. Oh well. Let the fun of solo running and making up workouts on your own begin.
