I graduated from East High School in 2015 and ran for Southern Utah University for a couple years. In 2016 I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri. I also attended BYU-Idaho in 2019. I am currently living in Salt Lake City where I have access to the best health care that I need. I'm currently taking classes online through SUU.

Can't remember why I didn't run yesterday, I probably just didn't want to. Oh yeah because the weather was crappy. Today I didn't run because my grandma had surgery on her hand and so I was in charge of my grandpa, we had to run to St. Marks to drop off an oxygen test then the car key battery died so we were almost locked out of the car but it had just enough juice to start the car so we went over to Nissan and got a new battery for it then over to TOSH to pick up my grandma after her surgery. We were there for like 2 hours because her oxygen levels kept dropping below 90 and they kept putting her back on oxygen and she needed to stay off oxygen for 20 minutes before she could leave. But she's all good now! By the time we got back it was starting to get dark and I'm a little more hesitant to run after dark over here when I don't know where I'm going really, so no running today.

Took a path that connected with the Jordan River trail, then went south until it forked into a dirt road and the paved trail. Obviously the paved trail was where the trail continued, but I was curious where the dirt road led. So I took the dirt road. It ended in a large opening and I spotted a dirt trail, so naturally I followed that. It led to a fence that overlooked the next busy street. Looked at my watch and decided it was time to head back anyways. One thing I'm curious about is if the trail continues either way, north or south. I think it goes all the way to Bluffdale, but I could be wrong. As for the northern side I don't know where it goes. I'll have to explore that. 

On the way back I was noticing that running felt off. I adjusted my form and that boosted my pace up to 7:50, but it was tiring. Maybe I need some strength training too. Then I decided to run a couple 400s based off my watch. I was frustrated at them, too. I felt like I was putting in a good amount of effort but not getting the results I wanted. I ran a 1:40 and a 1:33. Then ran home.

I'm calling this one Redwood loop. Pretty much a box loop that included Redwood Rd. This 6 mile loop went down to 11400 S. Not sure if I'll make a loop along Redwood that's longer than that, but we'll see I guess.

To be honest, I was frustrated that I was running as slow as I was today. I averaged 8:41. I felt like the effort was there, but my legs didn't feel relaxed at all and by the end the lower part of my quads were hurting. I don't know what's up but I hope running feels more smooth soon.
