I ran a tempo run out to the Rec center and back (I was going to sign up for the race on Saturday, but they were closed) The way there was almost all uphill, but back was downhill. :) Avg. 7:20/mi.

I ran backwards Bank run today, the hill was killer! I ran a couple (1st and last) miles sub-7 (6:30 & 6:50) and avg. mile was 7:15! I meant to run some mile repeats after voice lessons at 4, but I did baptisms for the dead with David at the temple instead. (I'll do repeats tomorrow.)

I ran the Hospital run (7:43/mi avg), then I ran the industrial loop for 4x1mile repeats. The GPS watch ran out of batteries, so I don't know my times, but I am dead tired, so I think I ran around 6:00 for them. My legs are sore already!

Coach showed me this 9-miler on the internet map, so I did it, but I went too far at one point, so I ended up going a mile over. It was run and in the desert, I liked it.

I ran at 9 pm out from my house toward the AZ strip and into AZ for a while. I meant to run 13, but my watch's batteries died at 5 miles, so I missed the turnaround and finally turned around a ways past the 7 mile spot. My legs are so tired! I feel like I'm going to die next week at the race!

I ran the "new" 8-miler from the school around on the Washington Pkwy. and a bit through the desert. It went pretty well, avg. 7:33/mi. It felt good and I'm not sore, so that's a good sign. :)

Today I ran the Bank run, I ran ok, my legs are a bit tired from yesterday. My avg. mile was 7:30 or so, after I ran, Amanda, Ally and I went and bought Jr. Prom jewelry! Tomorrow we have a track meeting at lunch, so soon after the half marathon on Saturday, track conditioning is probably due to start.

Today I ran out with Coach to the end of the pavement in Green Springs. We ran it pretty fast, but it felt good. We talked and he gave me some pointers for Saturday's race.

I bought a new pair of shoes - New Balance Acteva size 10 W 2A. Then I ran a mile with Tim to help him get in shape.

I ran Chuckarama with Brian Bennion. But he died at about 2.5 miles, so I took off and ran the rest by myself.

I am so so so sore from lifting yesterday. I ran an easy barbershop run because I'm so dead. It went well, but I'm still just as sore and stiff.

I was busy all day and decided to take a day off. Maybe my ultra-sore legs will feel better.

I ran with my orthotics today, they felt odd, I don't know if I like them.  I ran a mile with Amanda Lusk around the track, then ran the DI loop pretty fast.

We ran to "the hill" and I ran it 3 times, then we (Jeff, Austin and Josh) ran back to the school ultra-fast! Hard workout, but it felt pretty good.

Took a day off...I guess... but I did go on a bike ride, so that was fun. And I bought "new" shoes- Asics 2100 Men's 8.5 - like before I got the 2110's on Oct. 1. I love them!

I ran with Ashley today out to Chuckarama, then picked up my car from repairs and drove back to the high school, then we ran hart's so it all added up to be about 4, I guess.

We ran DI really fast then we did stadiums 8 laps (3 mi) so my legs are more tired. Ow! It felt good to push myself, though.
