am--10 Long Run w/ 2x 15-min. tempo sections. We did a big loop onto the River Trail. I wasn't sure how this was going to go, but it went well. I felt strong. We got progressively stronger, and the group split a bit. RHR--57. 

pm--2.5 Ran in the school because of lightning. Should be the worst of runs, but hearing a big group of girls sing High School Musical songs brings joy to the soul. I have the coolest job ever. Erged 2k (8:45.1) after.

I also finished another small book--Speed Work for Distance Training by Bob Schul. He offers a training method based off Mihaly Igloi's interval/effort workouts. I'm intrigued by the idea of many short reps to stave off any anaerobic detriment while keeping the heart rate up. This is something to look into more. Schul, an Olympic champion in the 5k, also wrote a biography that is in my queue.

am--3.5 DI/weights/Harts. Nearly freezing morning but a good run. RHR--49.

pm--1.5 We had Panther Relays today. I didn't get much running but did throw down a 2:42 anchor 800. I've never raced an 800, but that time feels about right for the shape I'm in. Brianna held me off and cost me doughnuts.

am--4.25 Reverse Costco Loop via Biolife/Zions/Costco Loop w/ Sportsman's parking lot extension. Nice morning to run. My heel was stiff and hurting this morning, but once it loosened, I felt good at a steady pace. RHR--51. 

pm--5.75 Green Springs. I was dragging a bit on the way out but felt peppy on the way back. Beautiful afternoon. Erged 3k when I got home.

pm--7 Nice, easy progressive run. I woke up sick, full of off-colored mucus, and went so far as to dress in my running clothes for an early run but decided to cash in and get another hour of sleep. Meet went well. Things seem to be turning a corner for the team. I got home, took a nap, and then ran. Erged a hard 1k after (4:05).
