6:16 pm: 7 miles

Ran 7 miles on Bonneville Shoreline trail. For whatever reason I had trouble stay on the correct trail and ended up having to stop and back track and it really just killed me mentally. I'm tired, my legs are tired, it was just a real slow day, but I was still able to push through 7 miles. Averaged a 9:26 mile. Very grateful that tomorrow is a rest day. Will be doing a lot of stretching tonight before bed.

12:32 pm: 3 miles

Well the plan was to run 4, but I could feel my shin aching a bit more than the previous days so I decided to stop at 3 and walk/jog the last mile. My average pace was 7:15 per mile which was a lot faster than I wanted (probably why my shin freaked out). I got to keep focusing on bringing my pace down until I can safely run at a faster pace. It's honestly been one of the hardest challenges for me, but I've made some great improvements. Probably gonna go for a hike later since it was a low mileage day

4:24 pm: 7.25 mile hike

Decided to hike to the Y which is only 2.2 miles round trip, but at the Y I saw another trail and got curious and before I knew it I was at the top of Y mountain. Didn't plan on getting in that mileage, but I wasn't complain. Ended up hiking up 3,443 ft in 2 hour and 24 minutes which wasn't too bad (19:52 average mile). My legs are pretty tired from today's activities so there will be a lot of stretching and massaging tonight before bed

PM: 2 hours of volleyball + 6 miles

After work today I went and played a good 2 hours of volleyball and then immediately went for my run. Since I was in Sandy I decided to run some of the trails near there. Ended up running 3 miles straight up hill and 3 miles back down. I kept the pace slow because of the 2 hours of jumping I had done right before and I didn't want to overwork my shin or ankle so I averaged a 9:10 per mile. Had no major problems with either injury, but I am wiped out. Nothing else tonight. I'll probably make tomorrow an easier day so I can have a good run on Saturday.

PM: 5 miles

Today was not the best day for running. Started out and could feel that my legs were really tired. After a bit they began to get a bit better, but I could definitely feel a difference. Once I hit the hills I decided to take a new turn to explore some more of the trails and found a trail that is uphill the entire way (about .9 miles). I think it's my new favorite hill in Provo. Anyway a little over 2 miles into the run I stopped and threw up on the side of the trail. Ended up taking the rest of that mile extremely easy, until I began to feel better. No problems on the way down. In terms of injury today was the best day so far. I only really felt small aches in my shin on the downhill, but other than that I didn't feel it at all. Makes me happy to know that it's healing and getting stronger. Gonna continue to strengthen both that and my ankle so that I continue to stay injury free.

Gonna see if I can fit in a walk tonight, but I'm gonna for sure do some core before I head to bed.

PM: 5 miles

Was able to finally get in some mileage today. During the run I felt no sharp pains in my shin which was great, but it still did ache a bit. Anyway it's been feeling a lot better. Had no problem with the ankle either. Decided to take today's run up some hills and ended up getting lost on my way back down which was fun, but ended up averaging 8:19 per mile which is slower than usual, but it's okay. That just means more rest for the injuries. Gonna do some strengthening exercises tonight before bed and stretch.

PM: 2 hours volleyball + 1.5 miles

Well guys I'm still trying to get in the habit of logging my workouts everyday so I'll give a quick summary from last week. I kept it very very low mileage (1-2 miles a day) because my shin began to act up and I don't want to take any chances with it. Today (after playing volleyball for 2 hours) I started out with the hopes of running more than 2 miles, but decided to give the shin another day before increasing the mileage so I decided just to run a quick 1.5. I kept the pace easy so as to not over irritate the shin. On the bright side, my ankle feels great! It's been getting stronger and I no longer feel any pain at all before, during, or after runs!! Just have to be careful with it and make sure I keep strengthening it.
