I felt like I was slipping around less with my shoes laced up today. I think my body is not only rested but adjusting as well because I did 10 miles (and two strides) today and it didn't feel taxing hardly at all. Aerobically a bit, but there was no fatigue hardly at all. My tendon did fairly well.

I was really winded today- literally. I had planned on doing a cutdown (six miles going from 5:50 to 5:00 or so). I even paced my warm up miles. I really tried to do it the way I had planned. But I didn't notice that it was quite windy, but that once I started running, the wind seemed to disappear. Every runner knows that on a windy day when you can't feel anything it's because the wind is at your back. My first mile was 5:34 and it felt amazing. I decided to run about the same for the next mile- I hit 5:32. Its hard to say because I know sometimes I overestimate my ability to hold a pace, but I felt so good. Then I turned around for the rest of the run. Wind was blasting my in the face almost the hole time. When it wasn't I would sometimes "forget" to speed up, so I don't think I gave it my all, but I do think if I could have been consistent without wind my time would have been much faster. Anyway, my splits afterward were: 5:35, 5:33, 5:31, 5:26. Oh well. Hopefully tomorrow goes well!

Went to Kiwanis again. I had planned on doing 9. It's hard to remember how I felt last week exactly but I want to say I felt better than last week! I'm planning on doubling tomorrow at the current rate.

AM: 5 miles, a little sore achilles.

PM: Wow, this actually felt really good. I was pushing it a little much (6:27 pace or so while running it mostly on grass) which I tend to do on the provo river trail. But I'm excited, to feel this way after pushing it as much as I have is awesome!

I feel kind of bad for stopping at my friends tailgait. Oh well. Despite me not feeling amazing (and a newer pain that seemed less threatening in my lower and upper rather than middle parts of the tendon), I was surprised to start running again and not feel sore.

I ran out to the airport for the first time. That road that goes around the airport is really straight and no one is out there. It's almost boring. I'm not sure if I'll do it again. Averaged 5:55 miles. I felt pretty tired and slow. Hopefully I am capable of more than this but it's just that my body is adjusting to the higher mileage. I didn't speed up much, it was probably 6:30 for the first couple miles, then a 6:10, and then 5:44s the whole rest of the way (that was my average coming back).

Another workout in Orem. Not to be a baby, but I might stop going there since this time I felt like I was running into the wind the whole time! Maybe it's just the stormy weather. I didn't run as fast as I had wanted, but I am not (overly) concerned since I had a similar issue in my summer 2014 and 2017 training blocks where I would just stop getting faster for a few weeks. Both seasons ended up being successful for me however. So I will be patient. Goal was: 3 by (5:40-5:45 mile, 5:00 mile). I ran 5:36, 5:13, 5:46, 5:12, 5:45, 5:08. I felt like at 5:45 pace I was recovering very slowly, but (aerobically speaking) I was recovering, which was good.

The greater portion was at Kiwanis. I think that really helps.

At times I could have felt better. But after I warmed up this morning, I felt really loose for a morning run.

I felt kind of like garbage on my run today in St. George. Sweat was getting in my eyes, I felt tired and my calcaneal tendon (proper anatomical term) was hurting. I could see into Arizona and last night accidentally drove there.

Today was one of those rare occasions where I overestimate my mileage. I shouldn't complain, I had an awesome run. I got back from St. George and immediately left for a cold, windy run at 7 pm or so. Coincidentally, it was the third time in a row when I just happened to run past the stadium during a football game. Anyway, I had really not been pushing it for most of the first miles, and I guess I forgot about that, because I turned back earlier than I should have. I was only going 6:34s on the way out. Then on the way back I just felt awesome. Lots of energy, I think I had the wind at my back, it was great! 5:22s. 5:58s overall.

I feel like I might be a little lighter now. That's good. It might take a few more weeks to get down to where I need to be using this method. Today I planned to do a 7 mile "power" run along the river trail . The past several workouts though my first mile has been in the 5:30s so when I went out in 5:08 I thought "uh oh" and kind of reverted into "go hard until you break" mode. Miles 2-3 were 10:25. Miles 5-6 were 10:34 (I stopped to go to the bathroom real quick at halfway). I could've done all 7 miles but decided just to accelerate near the end and call it there. Hmm. 5:13 pace. Still a really good improvement.

Hmm. Grass loops at Kiwanis. Didn't feel amazing. Reminder that I need to be careful as I step down the pace over the coming weeks as I get faster but particularly as my workouts change and involve running at faster paces.

Ran Carterville with the boys again. Still not where I'd like it to be so I didn't do strides. Hopefully I can get a good weekend of rest and then pump it next week.

Wow. That's one of the most grueling runs I can remember. I just felt tired pretty much right from the getgo. With the wind blasting out of the canyon on the way up, I was exhausted. Then on the way down I sort of went into a subconcious state where I told my legs and arms to keep moving and then just checked out. Near the end my vision started getting weird and I was battling to maintain what I'd guess was 6 minute pace. Oh well. At least I have a long time to recover. These things happen. I ran 48 minutes out, 42:30 back for 90:30 overall but I was just estimating 15 miles so it may not have been exact.

I didn't feel amazing today, but for some reason I decided to do strides and felt fine. It was a beautiful rainy day. I saw a double rainbow. This was my first time running down south and then out to the airport (I turned around right there at the airport). This was also my longest "easy" run ever. I tried to be careful not to push the pace.

We Did a 5-4-3-2-1 Farrell with rest equivalent to whatever we'd run next. I was pretty nervous since it would mean I'd have to run fast in order to get a good workout. Isaac and I made a plan this morning to just do long stuff and work on my lactate threshold for a couple months. So this workout kind of surprised me. Anyway. I planned to go out in 5 minute pace. First 5 minutes was 4:56 pace on the track. After that I ran on the grass. Somehow I was able to make the workout decently hard. Idk how fast I was going, since the fields can be super deceiving. But if I had run just as hard on the track it would have been pretty fast. I hope Derek just had a bad day because he dropped off pretty hard partway through the four minute one. Aidan did his own thing.
