Today I just did the cemetery run from my house, then added a little when I got back. Not too bad. I need to get used to long runs. I wasn't focusing on pace, just more of a relaxed sort of run. 8:00 average.

I ran to the track, then Dakota, Rachel and I went up to Sunnyside. We did a lap and then came back. Later we ran to the cemetery, did a lap, and then came back. Dakota and I eventually started to push the pace, and it was nice to finally get myself to go at a faster pace :)

AM: 

Today we went to Jeremy Ranch road. We went 5 miles out and back. My first 2 miles were pretty fast, both under 7. After about 3.5 miles I didn't feel so good, so I stopped at the bathroom. Bill and Dakota were ahead when I got out, so I worked up to them. Then I just stuck with them for a while. After about mile 6 I crashed, I don't know why. I think I just lost it mentally thinking that I still had to do 4 more miles. With a mile to go, there was this woman and her kid petting a horse, and it looked like fun, but I kept going even though I really wanted to stop. I feel like my long runs suck now, I wish I was as good at them as last year, but I guess I'll just have to wait a month or so until I get stronger.

PM:

Went for an easy 3. The first part of it sucked because I had a huge side ache and it wouldn't go away! Eventually I tried going faster and then it went away :)

Today we did a mile while Chris and Tomy warmed up, then did 4 X strides while they did speed, and then went for a run. We went to the gully and did a lap then to sugarhouse and did a big grass lap, and came back to the track and did a 300. It was 54-55ish. Then called it good. It was HOT.

My original plan was to do 10 in the morning and 5 at night. That didn't happen. I slept in way too late, and it was already super hot when I woke up. I decided I wasn't going to do 10 miles in that heat. So plan B was to do all 15 at once, later at night when it was cooler. Yeah, that plan failed too. I procrastinated it all day. Then when I finally was ready to go, I heard that Natalie and the BYU girls were at Nat's house! So I went up and talked to them for a bit :) And then I went for my run.

I went up 13th to foothill, then went to thunderbird. Then I went along Wasatch until I got to the zoo, down to foothill, then did the VA loop to guardsman. I went along guardsman back to my house and added to 10. It was still pretty hot when I started, but as it went along it got cooler. I felt good, not like I was crashing, up until the 6th or 7th mile where I just started to feel sick to my stomach, maybe not such a good idea to eat a ton right before you run. But it was weird that I felt sick after 6-7 miles... oh well. I didn't do the full 15 I'd planned because of how sick I felt, and it was dark. Now tomorrow's going to suck, I should've done more night runs.

I did the Judgesrun 5k today. I warmed up 1.25. At the start I took the lead then realized that was stupid because I didn't know where the beginning went, so I slowed down and let other people in front. It did some weird loop in the Highland parking lot before going around the park. After we got out of the Highland parking lot I knew where we were going. There was the guy in front who had a gap on me, then another guy right behind me. My first mile was 5:50 but it had downhill in it. I could feel myself crashing when we got to the far corner of the park, the guy behind me passed me. I tried to get myself to keep racing, but found it difficult when we were going uphill. Then when I got to the top of the hill another guy passed me, I tried to go with him. I hung on for a bit, but then fell off. Finally another downhill I surged and tried to catch up, but couldn't. When we turned on 15th he had a huge gap on me and I slowed down again. Another guy passed me along 15th. Later I could hear a guy right behind me having a hard time trying to catch me, I tried to hold him off. I was able to up until right at the end where he outkicked me.

It was honestly a bad race for me. I didn't like the course. 1 grass lap around sugarhouse and then go along 15th, turn up 17th and finish at the presbyterian church. Uphill finish. Just what I wanted. I felt super lethargic, but I did stay up really late last night because I couldn't sleep. One day when I actually prepare well for a race I will do well. This race at least had a nice breakfast after! I was the first female. Afterward I had a lot of people come up to me and ask if I ran for East :) That was fun, I didn't think people knew who I was.

1.5 cool down.
