I'm baaaaaack! Just needed a little break for awhile during track but now I'm back at it for xc season. Just ended up doing two miles at practice this morning (baby steps ya know?). Felt good. Did abs and hips too.

Longest I've run in awhile today. Technically I was supposed to cross train today but my bike is currently out of commission so... Anyway I ran 3.7 over to the AF rec center and then did a Zumba class (haha so weird but fun). Average pace was about 8:00, felt pretty good except for some minor pain in my right knee. Good day cuz running is gr8t.

Half mile wu, then some drills, and then we did this awful human knot thing... I'm shuddering just thinking about it. Then went 2.5 more, up Nuttal Drive and then looped back on the rail trail. Felt pretty good overall. 8:10ap. Glad to be running again and super Glad to have my girl Gan back :) but still missing the rest of the squad :'( might be kinda MIA the rest of the week cuz girls camp but crossing fingers for good trails :)

First run at camp this morning and boy was it BEAUTIFUL! We were up the canyon from Ogden in Liberty and there were some sick trails. Ran from the Ben Lommond trail head up...and up... and up... but it was worth it! seriously i want to move up there! I felt decent but by the time I got to turn around I felt like my lungs were going to explode a little haha. Fun run tho. Also turned out that later we would hike the same way up... #ripmylegs. 8:20ap.

Another run at camp today, this time real early cuz I was helping with breakfast. Turns out tho, that when you try to leave the camp super early the gates are locked up tight. So i definitely had to scoot my way through the dirt under the fence...so fun. Anyway I accidentally forgot to do pickups yesterday so I did them today. it was just 6x1min pickups at 5k pace (about 6:07 mile), but after no speed for so long it was a lil rough. First four were on pace (i think) but the last two might have been kinda slow.

Awesome trail run with Gan this morning! After a lot of wrong turns we made it to the Bonneville Shoreline trail up close to the "Y". It is a pretty sick trail with an awesome view. Turns out tho that when the trail splits you should NOT take the small uphill one cuz that ends in you having to basically slide down the rocky mountain side for awhile. It was overall a really good time tho and I felt pretty good even tho our pace was pretty slow. Glad to be back running with a buddy too! Also after we got the BEST honey whole wheat bagels with strawberry schmear(?) from Einstein bagels and I highly reccommend.

Half mile wu and then back to the Kicker today... yay. Haha really tho compared to the dreamaker it's not so bad. Ended up running a 10:05 today, which according to the record board is a two second PR, but honestly I'm not sure how accurate the record board actually is cuz I think I ran under 10:00 last year. But oh well. Anyway I felt okay but I do think I could've gone harder, but I guess the first kind of "race" is always a little rough in gauging how fast you ought to be going. After ran back down to the park and then a half mile more to finish up at 4. Abs and hips.

Mile wu and then our first tempo run - yay! haha. But it wasn't too bad. Just two miles at tempo pace, which for me is 6:05-6:45. First mile was a 6:39 and then second mile was a 6:20. Felt good and looking back probably could've gone a little faster the first mile, but I'm glad I was conservative. After did a couple more miles with Bryn, and then weights 4.

So 70-minute-saturday ended up being more like 100-minute-saturday... Biked to Highland Glenn Park then ran 6 on the MCT. Running was somewhat rough because I still have a rough chest cold so pace was like 8:15-20 or something. It was also really windy so that was not so fun. After running I rode my bike back home (very slowly haha). Did abs at like 10:30 at night.

1.5 mile wu to "falcon gorge" for a hill ladder workout today. 100,200,300,400 - 2 sets. Pace was supposed to be between 5:58-6:46, but I think the majority of them were faster than pace or on the fast end. Both 400s were 90s which was good and consistent so I was happy with it. After ran back (very slowly hah) and then did abs, hips, and some pushups cuz why not. Overall a good workout today. 

Also, this will be my last blog post for a couple weeks, but no fear, I shall return!
