45min total today. Was planning on a chill park loop with some strides, but I ran into travis, nate, clayton, and teron on the track so I started their workout with them. Just did 600m with them at about 5:00 pace. Surprised myself haha didn't think I could last that long. Felt good!

Easy 40min again, followed with 4x200m finishes on the track, hit 32's for them. Didn't feel very smooth, I haven't gone that fast in a while, but felt solid! Also i know i switched over to time instead of mileage, but i like mileage better honestly so i might just download the strava app and record distance on that because i don't have a watch

3.52

Ran 3.52 easy from my house, up by cedar high, and finished with some grass loops. They closed the track due to coronavirus, so that sucks. loved training at eccles, wish I could a little more before I leave cedar, but i understand they're just trying to keep people safe, and there have been quite a few people using the track when i've been there. recorded the mileage with strava's gps thing on my phone, and it was kinda glitchy. i need a watch. finished the mileage with 2xBarefoot hill strides in the grass.

used strava's record-from-your-phone feature, seems pretty accurate. Ran park loop and finished with grass loops, the usual. 6:49 avg pace. way faster than i'm used to these days, but felt good!

My new watch came today, the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music. It's awesome, I was able to download my playlists from spotify to my watch, so I didn't need to take my phone for music, the watch connected to my headphones. It aso tracks so many things, Vo2 max, tons of different things with heart rate, arterial oxygen saturation, and a ton of other stuff, an exercise science major's dream. 

anyway, ran 3.5 on park loop with grass loops. threw in 2x30 second pickups just to test the quickness of the pace drop with the watch's gps. super accurate! felt good on the run.

ran 5 easy today, 7:05 avg. ran from my house to bicent, then looped up through the park and back to my house. nice little loop in the classic cedar city wind. I can really feel myself getting fitter. reminded why i fell madly and hopelessly in love with this sport. improvement you can see. 

i want to do a mile time trial soon, just spike up and go for it. if anyone reads my blog, give me a reasonable date for a time trial and i'll do it lol

only had time for 2.2 miles this morning. 9 hour shift at work and then went up to Scofield to move my grandparents stuff from their cabin. they had to sell it due to getting old. 22 years of memories come to an end, but i'm forever grateful for grandparents who gave me the world.

ran 4.5 easy, went up dikes and came down near cassie's old apartment. kept it easy, 7:30 avg. felt really good! the fitness is coming together nicely, and i'm getting better at holding back and not feeling the need to run 6:xx pace all the time.

ran 5.6 easy before moving to my new place. moving is so exhausting lol i've now lived in 7 different places in cedar. can't wait to settle down. also i'm having a bit of an existential crisis about getting older, anyone on the blog who's in their mid to late 20's wanna help me with that? i'm only 22 but i'm kinda struggling with the whole concept of not being able to do certain things due to age
