Played some post-church soccer with the fam(after I got a sick haircut, flow). We played about half an hour on a half of a field, with them 4 v 1-ing me, so a lot of sprinting. I'll undermine it and call it 1.5 miles. Afterwards I decided to get a glimpse of hell and do 3.5 miles in the blistering heat

Afternoon - Went to the park with mama G and lil sis, while they played I did a casual 2 miles around the park. Hot as the Eta Carinae out there though.

 

Evening - Drove out to U-hill and did a little over 4 miles uphill, and about 2 down. Shouldn't have ran up a mountain in shoes as light and thin as the MD500's, Every rock and pebble I stepped on was pure agony. Feet are hurting like a mother currently but oh well

Did an 8 mile run with Aaron in the desert. We called austin and mason up again, but they both flaked. That's fine by me, in the end they wont see me coming

Was going to do a seven mile run in the morning with Aaron, but he overslept so I ran by myself. My legs were completely dead, it was a pretty slow and painful run. I'll pprobably just do the regular core tonight, and then try to convince Aaron to do an evening run tomorrow so I'll be well rested for the next workout so I can crush it.

Met up with Aaron, and ran a little over 3 miles to U hill, 3 miles up it and 1 mile scaling down(something I recommend to anyone who wants to die painfully), and 3 miles back. Pretty intense run

I started with a mile warmup and felt like crap. I hurt and wasn't really into the run. I decided to just do a short run, about 3.5 miles. I didn't really look at my watch, instead focusing on just keeping a steady pace with pretty large strides. Turns out I went quick. My mile splits were 6:20, 5:54, 6:01, and my last half mile was about a 5:30. It makes me happy that even though I've done about 7 miles every day this week, with a pretty difficult 10 mile run yesterday, that I can feel not well and still go pretty quickly. Super excited to start speed training in a few weeks and get that mile time down. #grindisreal

A.M. - Took the SAT, which was pretty terrible. I'll count it as a workout. 

 

P.M. - Did a mile warmup, 3.5 mile run, and mile cooldown, same as yesterday, only took it easier. I think the 6 hours of sitting in a room cramped up my legs. The first mile it felt like there was a hypodermic needle that was stabbed through my rear end(I thought of that during the run), So I pretty I did a pretty slow jog, and then sped it up to an easy pace. I drank way too much water after the 3.5 and I wanted to throw up during my cooldown, but then I saw my old AP English teacher who yelled at me to speed up, so I increased to a 6:00 pace which hurt my foot a bit.
