I did a good 20 minutes of core before my run. It was in the 90's in the evening so another night run. 8 miles real easy, 7:38 pace.

AM - 4 easy. I tried using my heart moniter to decide my pace. The first mile it told me I was going wayy too easy, where I was at the point where I got down to 6:05 pace and it still said I was going 100 bpm. Then a bit later I slowed down on purpose, and the watch started reading my pulse right. It kept saying my heart rate was barely over easy pace and beeping at me to slow down. So yeah, I flipped off a watch today. No more of that. I'm gonna go move some tree branches I cut since I'm living on my own now lol.

PM - Lifted with Tbird for a bit, then went on an easier run. Watch kept beeping at me that my heart rate was too low (117bpm for 7:20 pace) but I ignored it. Threw in 1 set of 90-60-30, hit .28, .21, and .11. Felt good to get a bit of speed in, but I'm only a week back from my break so not too quick yet haha. Avg pace 6:54. I gained 135 feet to my 132 feet lost so it was a good run. 

I am sad to announce I must DNS for the Connor Baller Classic this weekend. I was super pumped to sleep over with Connor and Asa, but my parents are gonna be in town so I gotta stay.

AM - 3 easy on Aggie. Legs felt pretty tired for the first two.

PM - Played ping pong with Trevor, then did 7 easy. Started to get in a nice groove on the downhill, but then I remembered tomorrow's tempo so I took it easy. 7:05 pace.

5 @ 7:24 pace. Lots of 180 turns.

Bump in the road today in the form of knee pain in my left leg. Original plan was 12 for the day with seven miles tempo. I iced and compressed and wasn't even sure if I'd be able to run period. But, my leg felt better. Didn't risk anything with tempo though. Half mile of strides after and they felt great. Stretched after.

Mile just to see how the knees felt. Felt pretty good.

PM - 8 in the extremely brutal heat(91F) of 2 PM. warmed up 2.5, managed to get about 3 miles in at 6:20 pace before the heat killed me. I was dead by the start of the quick stuff. Not a fun time, barely survived it. 7:12 pace avg. Extremely dehydrated. My heart rate stayed in easy/aerobic 99% of the run so that's good I suppose. Maybe 4 more tonight after work. I put 2 coconut waters, ice, and blue gatorade mix in a blender and make a fizzy drink. It was gross but I'm dehydrated. hit another low in my weight, havent been this light since 9th grade.

4 more tonight after work. Easy pace, but stomach felt wrecked. Since I ran 13 today I sped with maybe 300m to go and pretended I was finishing a half marathon.

Extremely good run today. After two failed attempts at the tempo run, I succeeded at  it today, and man it felt great.

2.5 WU with speed changes, 

7 miles tempo @ 5:58 pace

2 cooldown

I can't believe I ran how I did on the tempo. After a track season of barely breaking 5 and 11, today was crazy. Just a reminder, I've been back from my break for less than 2 weeks. The hard part about this run was every mile I had to do a 180 degree turn which slowed the pace down SO bad. So pretty dang cool, stoked for Ragnar. And if anyone actually reads this with all the CBC hype going on, ily

Splits from yesterdays tempo: 

5:47, 6:05, 6:16, 6:11, 5:50, 6:09, 5:42

AM - slept in.

PM - 2 miles to U-hill base, mile with Kedric, mile with Rylie. so 4 miles warm up. Then raced up the hill. Kedric and I stuck together for about 1/3-1/2 of a mile, then Kedric slowed, poor kid hasn't ran in 7+ days because he got so sunburnt last saturday. I made some good moves up the hills, and was in extreme pain for most of it. Hiked to the U, then jogged back down easy. Dropped Rylie off and did 4 mile cooldown for 12 for the day.
