AM: Workout. I almost worked out with the team. It was weird timing cuz we got up early to run which made it actually possible for me to go with them when Isaac texted me that morning, but I was late. I actually don't regret it in hindsight because I wasn't really feeling it. I didn't mean to go hard anyway since I wasn't used to working out twice a week. They took off pretty fast, or at least it felt like that, up the hill on our campus loop. 5:33 first mile, ran the next two in 10 flat or so, including a good bit of downhill. It ended up being pretty hard. Took a break and then did three by three minutes hard with 90 secs rest. I just chilled and didn't push myself too hard. Isaac told us not to do all five. I ran my second two on the grass solo since my knee was hurting. About 5 flat pace for those. 

PM: 4.5 hot miles. Afterward I could taste the salt.

10.5 miles in the morning on my own. My other knee was hurting with what might be prepatellar bursitis. It wasn't worse on impact I would say, but I decided not to run twice anyway.

Interesting day. Sarah was running the Wasatch 5K so I drove up to the canyon to see her. I ran around and then started with the group. I basically paced the top guy up the hill. He ran like 19:40 so yeah I wasn’t killing Myself. I ran like a mile with Sarah on the way back. Now I can say I have run with Adam and Sarah, so I feel content haha. Then I ran more after we drove home, and more that afternoon. My knees were doing pretty well so that’s nice.

AM: 11 miles. Core. 

PM: 5 miles late in the evening. That was the first "night" run I've had in a while. Unlike previous experiences, I was NOT rolling. I was surprised how slow I was. Oh well. No matter how fast you get, you are still capable of running slow.

AM: Fartlek on the river trail. On the way I out I did 3-3s and 3-2s for the way back. Felt alright. Very rough estimate of 5:50 pace- 4:40 on hard and 7 flat on easy? Idk. 

PM: 5 miles.

Dropped Sarah off at the SLC airport at 5 am so I didn't run in the morning. Actually it worked out well because I felt good running in the evening in the rain. It was quite nice. Plus, I have been super busy with wedding prep and I had this lightbulb idea as I ran past Wilson diamonds that I could pick up her wedding band right there in my short shorts. Yep, miraculously it worked. She put it in a box so I took it home and it was nice and dry.

AM: 11 miles and a few strides. Woohoo! At times I felt kind of junky but I was able to do the strides fine. 

PM: 5 miles. I felt SO hungry at the end. I LOVE that feeling of just being so hungry and knowing you can eat a ton of food once you get home.

18 miles to end my longest week ever. Grateful for the sabbath to rest these knees! Thankfully my back felt fine even though I threw it out last night. Being in the running position didn't hurt it. Three mile tempo on the way back. The pace seemed off so I must have miscalculated it. Overall it was like 6:19 which seems about right.

Stressful morning of packing up the last two years of my life. But my run wasn’t stressful. I did 4 by 2k w/ 90 secs rest. I decided to run the lake loop. Then I decided I would start each rep where I finished the last so I could see my overall time and pace accurately. Each rep I did 6:10 hard since that was my pace estimate. At first I felt great. The lake loop always feels fast. At the end though I realized I was cutting it close to my goal and I just felt  like I couldn’t go any faster. I ended up doing the loop in 24:51, with three 90 second rests thrown in. Disappointing but once I get my speed I hope to drop a lot off of that.

2 mile tempo and then four 800s on Sarah’s track in 2:23-2:25. The humidity accounts for a lot more difficulty than altitude.

No one was at the gym this morning. That’s fine because it is tiny. There was one treadmill. Ran strides too.

8 by k on the treadmill with 90 secs rest. Started at 5:10 pace since on a treadmill that seeemd like light speed but really it wasn’t. Gradually dropped it down until it maxed out at 4:50 pace and I did a mile of that on the last one since I wasn’t too tired.

Went to go watch/ pace my brother who had a two mile time trial. He killed it- 10:47 for fourth place on the team. He will have a great season. Ran out of time so I ran a few more miles that evening.

11 miles. Strides. Stopped at the training room to see about camp/ trying out and sadly it is a complicated process that should have been started earlier. Due to circumstances that I wouldn’t say make it my fault or Isaac’s fault, I may not be able to go to camp :/ Oh well. I never have before and that didn’t stop me from getting fast.

AM: Workout. Went to the track and fresh orientation was crazy but no one was on the track. Ran in the outside lanes because of steeple barier. Supposed to Be 10-5-3-2-1 fartlek, but I did 5-6-4-3-2 or something since I got out in 77 and freaked out because it was hard. Later on I was sub 5 pace but I needed to wake up first. 

PM: 5
