We all drove out to AWHC and did our workout there to get ready for the meet on Saturday. Warmed up for a few minutes, then ran the course a couple times with 6 half-mile pushes throughout. The pushes were pretty quick (5:40-6:20 pace for all) but went pretty well and felt reasonably good. (GT 444.8)

Went out at around 9 for an easy run. Ran up on the N Logan loop with a mini extension on 16th north to make it long enough. I really liked the run, I'll probably do it more often in the future. (GT 453)

Ran to weights in the afternoon. Lifted and all that good stuff. And later in the evening I did a heckofabunch of situps. Woo!

Ran to practice, there we did a nice little tempo workout. We ran up to first dam from the track, then on the river trail we ran out 1.5 miles at about 7:00 pace ('twas supposed to be 7:30, but we got a little excited). On the way back we picked it up to just cruisin' down at a comfortably fast pace - Jessie and I stuck together and chatted a little. Time for the whole tempo section was 18:40, so 6:13/mi avg. for the whole thing! Nice. After the push, we took a break, then ran back to the track (with a stop at first dam to jump in and cool off, hehe). Good run. (GT 498)

Got together with Joe and went on an hour run out into north logan and back. He made us run too fast, so I died. 'Twas fun to run with him and chat and all that good stuff though. (GT 461)

Ran to the track, then drove out to AWHC for an easy pre race workout. Jogged the course with the team, did a 5 minute push at 3 (or so) near the end, ran around a little while more after to get to a half hour, then put on my new spikes (which are awesome) and did some strides on the start and finish. Feeling a bit stiff, but ready to race tomorrow! Ran home from the track after. (GT 467)

Woo hoo!!! Sweet race to start off the season today! Started off really relaxed and comfortable, a little under 6 minutes for the first mile. On the second mile a Weber girl tried to break away, but Jessie and I stuck pretty well with her as she went. Mostly ran in third for that mile, but didn't lose more than ten feet on them. The last mile I started to kick it in, especially using the downhill to pass Jessie and Weber with about a half mile to go and just trying to keep my momentum to the finish. Cruised it in strong to the finish and won a college race for the first time ever! The course was a bit short, I mapped the course, it is a 3 mile. So my adjusted 5k time is 17:50- ish.) (F spike 3.1)

 After I got home from the race, I went out on a run with my neighbor up the canyon. We ran out to second dam, so about 9 miles. He did super great and it was fun to have company to finish out the week. Awesome day of running! :D (GT 479.5)
