I'm baaaaaack! So Ecuador was amazing except for the fact that I only got to run once, and just 2.5 miles. It was SUCH a sick run, but it was barely a run. So point being I'm very out of shape... however practice today wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be thank goodness. Mile wu to the cemetery and then whistle hills. Stomach felt a little queasy through out, but felt good overall and it was a solid wourkout. Finished up low mileage after, looping down over the overpass to Wine's park and then back up. After did abs and hips. 

*HUMONGOUS shoutout to Baby Alvizo (aka Emre)

*Shoutout to all my awesome buddies who I missed so much while I was gone!

Mile wu and then a low (much needed) recovery run. Seriously this is the first time I've been sore from running in over a year. Included in mileage was 2 miles of barefoot grass running behind the school with the one and only Sami. Way great to see that girl. Finished up rest of mileage with the two-mile loop. 8:20ap

Medium recovery today. I was definitely feeling super sore today so the miles was for sure on the slow side (8:30ap) but my body definitely needed it. Did the double-dip loop which is always a good one. After did some weights.

Mile wu to the junior high and then mile repeats - yipee! Honestly didn't feel so great on the wu so i was worried it was gonna be a super rough workout, but it ended up being okay once my legs got going. Workout was 3 mile repeats with 5 min rest inbetween. My splits ended up being 6:25, 6:32, 6:30, which I felt okay about. It was definitely a tough course cuz the grass was really long and there were a LOT of turns. After finished up mileage by doing 5 more at 8:20 pace up into highland then back down. Felt surprisingly good on the cd. Also HUGE shoutout to Allison Pray for doing the workout with us and then being my running buddy for the cd. What a cool girl.

Met Gups and Gan at Lehi today and did a good 6 mile out-and-back to the reservoir, and then Gan and I did a barefoot turf mile when we got back. Legs felt pretty darn tired and took a long time to warm up, so it was a good thing our route was flat as a pancake. 8:05ap.

Mile wu and then the "Kicker" today. My time ended up being a 10:12 which I was not happy with considering my PR is 10:05. However for not running for almost three weeks I guess it could have been worse. I felt like I was going a good pace, but looking back I took it way to easy coming up the second hill and right after the hill. Get'em next time I suppose. After ran back down, did a lil more, and then did abs and hips.

Mile wu and then low recovery run today. It's a good thing it was recovery cuz I needed it for sure. Legs just felt heavy, probs cuz the kicker yesterday, working all day, and not getting near enough sleep. 8:15-20ap. After did a weight workout (toes to bar got me good) and then abs and hips as per usual.

Mile and a half wu up to the Skyridge track for the 6-min test today. Felt pretty good going into it, but actually ended up getting a little less distance I think than last time, but not by much. So that sucks. Idk what happened. Definitely could've opened up more on the last lap I guess. After ran back then did about a mile more to finish. Abs and hips.

Lonely but pretty medium recovery today at Bear Lake. 8:15ap, legs were not feeling very good so it was kind of a struggle.

Another lonely run at Bear Lake today. Ran out toward the lake today which was pretty. Mile wu and then I tried to do the steady state run the best that I could but I was NOT feeling so good today so it was very very rough. Basically I could only do two miles of steady state, 6:55ap, which should have been not so bad, but for some reason I felt wrecked. After the two fastish miles I just tried to keep a decent pace for one more mile and then I really dropped the pace to between 8:45-9:00. Basically I was exhausted after this run even though I should have been fine so I don't know what's up. Probably nutrition and sleep but who knows. If anyone has some motivating words for me that would be much appreciated.

Last run at Bear Lake today, and although it was probably the slowest 5 miles ever, I felt better mentally than yesterday. I ran through Laketown a bit and then toward the lake, but instead of going all the way there I went on this cool dirt road through the trees that was mega-pretty and enjoyable. 8:35ap lol. Since it was high mileage today I planned on splitting up my run and doing four more when I got home... but that obviously didn't happen. Whoops.

Glad to be back at practice today. Mile wu to the cemetary for a "cross-country ladders" workout, which means 200,400,800,1600,800,400,200 at goal 5k pace with 1 min of rest after the 200 and then a minute more each time and vice versa going down. Overall it was a hard workout, but a good workout, and I felt pretty good. Everything was on pace (6:10 is my goal pace) or faster except the 1600 ended up being 6 seconds too slow so that was bummer. I seriously don't know how i'm gonna hold that pace in a race hah. Last 200m was pretty epic racing Mario. Shoutout to her for edging me out at the very end. After race back and finished our mile to end up one mile over mileage. Abs and hips to follow and like a gallon of water... #staythirsty

*shoutout to Austin cuz he leaves for Spain today. What a guy.

Easy pace run today, 7:30ap. Did the old country road willowcreek loop from the park which is exactly 6 miles so that's cool. Was not feeling super great... i think i was still just tired from Monday's workout, but it was still decently paced thanks to Gan and Tommy who were great running buddies. After did abs and hips.

"Skyrim" workout todayyyyy. Mile wu and then the wo was 8x600m burm repeats with 90 sec rest inbetween (that's not much fyi). Goal pace was 6:12-6:24 per mile, but per 600 it was basically to stay under 2:30 for me. It ended up being a really good workout and I hit some good splits: 2:18, 2:18, 2:24, 2:24, 2:24, 2:24, 2:24, 2:18. So very consistent hah. Legs were wrecked after but it was a good cd to the "watering hole" with Gangan. 

Shoutout to Collin and Gan for helping to pace the wo :)

High mileage recovery today. I had to do a couple miles b4 practice cuz I had to be somewhere at 10. Those kinda sucked cuz I did them barefoot on super long grass, but it's probably good for meh. Then did 7 more at practice with Gan. We ran down to Lehi and I ran a couple miles on the track while she ran on the grass and then we looped back up to the park. 8:15ap. Felt alright, not wonderful.

Really really good early run today. Met Gan, Gups, and Mario at Mitchell Hollow kinda early and we ran on the MCT up towards PG. One super cool thing that happened was that we at one point were running the opposite direction of all the people doing the Timp half on the trail, and we ran right past good ole Kaylee and Rachel and got to cheer them on! what champs... We were all feeling pretty good today so average pace for the whole running including warm up was 7:55. Soliddd. After did abs and hips and some pushups cuz ya know, gotta get that grind on ;)
