The first day of spring break is a good day to start training, right? Especially because of the coronavirus, I don't even have school to go back to haha. Ran 3.5 on park loop, then finished with some barefoot laps on the turf. Felt wheezy, but that's how any training block starts. Can't wait to get at it. 

Sidenote: if any of you are former collegiate runners turned party lifestyle turned back to running, I'd appreciate some advice haha, I'd really love to get back to my original fitness, but after about a year and a half of slacking off, I can understand if that's unattainable.

Was gonna do a bike sesh at vasa this morning but they closed all of their locations due to the virus; also my mom lost her job due to the virus. Wild times. We'll all pull through though.

Ran 3.5 total, park loop again with 4xbarefoot strides on the turf. Felt really good in the cedar city wind. Less wheezy.

Ran 4 easy from my place up the canyon and back. Felt amazing. The canyon was snowy and beautiful. Forgot how much I love to just go run and look at the scenery.

No run today, bad weather. Nothing or no one is forcing me to run, so why run in bad weather when I dont want to? I'll be honest, some of those mud runs and runs in lightning and what not were fun, but there's no need for it anymore

The weather is nice today, but I still probably wont run. Whoever reads my blog gets a front row seat to my OCD; gotta start tomorrow so the week looks good on paper. Lol

Update: I ran today. 35min easy on park loop. Gonna do minutes now because I don't have a GPS watch, and I won't be living in Cedar, where I know the mileage of every route, forever, so may as well make the switch. Felt good, hamstrings are tight, but that's to be expected.

Ran 30min easy on park loop. Today is our first day back from spring break at SUU, and the town is empty. Very eerie.

Ran 40min easy, from my house up the canyon and back. Felt good. Still wheezy after these runs, but that's ok.

Ran 40min total, park loop with some barefoot strides on the turf.

UPDATE: since I have no GPS watch and I run by time but that's hard to blog on here, I'm going to blog my minutes as if they are somewhat relative decimals of miles. For example, if I run 40 minutes, I'll put 4 miles in the total distance box. That way i don't put 40 miles in the distance box and ruin the mileage board, and now i also won't put nothing in the mileage box, so it won't show up as zero. I understand that I'm definitely running faster than 10min pace for these runs, so it may not be that accurate, but it keeps my OCD at bay.
