Was up late again finishing a lab report. Yep, Iím exhausted, but satisfied with how this week went.

Morning practice today. Warmups then started the workout. We did farm run, goal pace was 7:10-7:20 then 30 second pickups with 90 seconds at the goal pace in between. I liked the pickups because it made it go by faster. I was dead at the end though, tough week. I got out 3.5 miles before coach stopped me and told me to turn around (I fell off the pack around 3 miles), then he came back around and picked Kamryn and I up (she had class and I would have been over mileage if I had gone all the way back). We went faster than goal pace, my mile splits were 7:11, 6:28, 6:50, 7:18, 7:44 (including 1.5 cool down). Finished to 5 on the track. On a normal week I think I would’ve tried bumping it up to 6 by now, but for now Iíve got to listen to my body.

Garmin is dead so didnít get the pace, but it was quicker today. With about 2 miles to go I saw Maddy so I chased her down, ran with her for like a half mile but she was doing pickups and booking it, my hammy wasnít exactly loving the sudden change in pace. So I let her do her thing and finished back at my 7:20-30ish pace.

Treadmill run. First started at 7 mph then by .75 had bumped up to 9 mph. 2.25ish miles at 9 mph (6:40 pace) then cool down last 2 miles at 7.5 mph (8:00 pace). Felt a twinge in my shin, decided to stop at 5 to prevent shin splints or whatever was coming on. I hadnít been planning on doing a faster workout today, it just kind of happened. Thatís one good thing about treadmills I guess!

Decided to take it easy today. Iíve had several faster paced runs in a row, felt like I needed to just relax and run. Although I was surprised by my average pace at the end, I honestly hadnít looked at my pace at all during the run I just ran at what felt comfortable. I was expecting 7:50-8:00 pace but I actually averaged 7:35. Whooo yay for being 50% pace without trying! Ended up running farther than I intended too, today I felt great!

Over to 500 S then a lap in the cemetery and to the East High track. Ran for a while there until I felt like it was time to leave and then back to my parents house. Then added a little around the circle to get to 9.

I think this is the first time Iíve ever run on Christmas Day...

Nope I lied I ran on Christmas in 2014.

Outside ankle was a bit bothersome, think itís the tendon. Will ice and see how it feels tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!

Started with 2 around Sugarhouse with Garek then Nate joined and we did cemetery run. I don’t know what was up but I was really feeling it today. Might be asthma, actually. Chest was tight and breathing difficult. Was at 7:24 average 4.5 miles in, then slowed to 7:32 average for the full 8 (Garek and Nate did a couple laps in the cemetery, so that’s how I caught back up).

Mile repeats at Liberty with Garek. I did every other one of his, 3 total. His watch died so I gave him mine and he read off my times for me. 3 miles warmup then started. All of mine were from the mile marker to the two mile marker, so all slightly downhill. Garek was really consistent with his and his splits only varied 5-7 seconds on the two different ways (he just turned and went back for the next repeat, I recovered the short way and met him back at the mile marker) so not too much of a difference between the two ways. I hit 5:56, 6:07, 6:10. I’d probably add 3-4 seconds to make them “flat” times.  I got much more rest than he did, about 6 minutes vs. his 90 seconds. Garek killed it! 2 miles cool down.

Headed out on Wasatch loop but it was pretty icy still so I turned around on Foothill and did VA loop. Then down to 1300 E and up Virginia St. to 11th Ave. That’s a good hill for you. Then to the fire station and took Shriner’s run + VA loop back to my parent’s house. Added to 11. 7:47 average. 

I’m getting sick, felt it coming on last night.
