AM: Upper body at the gym. I can tell I am getting stronger.


PM: Met up with Nathan after work. We ran from my house, up South Temple until Virginia Street. Ran north up Virginia Street until we got to 11th avenue. 11th avenue through city creek canyon and home. Took Wilson on the run. He got the zoomies about a mile in to it so it took us a while to get him going again. Gotta love running with a puppy! Achilles hurt for the first part, but warmed up afer about 5 miles. Stretched when we got home.

Met up with Nathan for a lunchtime run. It was warm enough that Wilson was able to come also! Started at my house, ran up South Temple to 900 east. Took 900 east until 9th and 9th, then ran up to 1100 east, took that to 1300 east, down to Liberty Park and did a lap and a half inside the park, then ran back to my house along 600 east. Finished1 block from my place, so we walked the last block. Today was mentally tough because of the funeral this morning. But I am glad I got out and did the run. No foot pain and no achilles pain. After, I went to the gym and did lower body weights today. Stretched after. Good workout.

Did the first 6 miles of the marathon course with Nathan. Felt okay but my lunch wasn't settling well in my stomach, felt like I was going to throw up. Otherwise good run.

Long run with Nathan. Did miles 5-20 of the marathon course. Felt great! Was getting tired by miles 13 and 14. Longest run I've ever done at once. I think this marathon training is paying off! When we got home, stretched a ton and am going to demolish a burger for dinner haha. At about mile 10, I had a weird sort of cramp in my calf? It felt like someone was stabbing my calf. Tried to stretch it out, but that hurt a ton, so we walked for about a half mile trying to just let it relax. It relaxed, then we continued, but every time we stopped at a light or something, it would take a block or so to warm back up. I am unsure if it was dehydration? Or if I need some potassium? But very weird and painful feeling.
