Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to continue running as long as possible. I don't feel a need to run marathons; I would rather simply be able to run 5Ks and 10Ks for much of my adult life and at least get in a few miles until I'm pretty old.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I like chocolate shakes.

And that's a cap to the week. My Achilles felt alright. I ended up feeling tired at the end even though I was only averaging like 6:05s but that's ok. I actually started out pretty fast and overall I sort of gradually slowed down...yea.

AM: Yesterday was a blizzard (what a perfect day for it to snow, if it's going to!) and today there was a lot of snow but it wasn't too bad. I ran really slow (I could tell by how long it took me to reach my normal turn around) but felt fine. 

PM: 11 miles. Nice and easy. Three strides. The roads were pretty clear. I had some weird body problems which I'll research now but other than that was fine. 

Getting pumped!!! My dad ran a four mile tempo at 8:00 pace!! That's huge for him! This is the year!

It actually wasn't as cold as it could have been. I ran 3.5 miles to warmup. Unfortunately I was supposed to meet Aidan at 4:00 but he met meet at 4 to warm up. Oops. So I ran laps around the track complex/ Helaman halls for 15:30 for the three mile tempo. Idk my splits, it was a little concerning that my first lap (over a mile) was 5:43 and my second was about 5:55. The third was probably a bit slower. I tried to control it but I was still tired, even after my nine minute rest. Update: I looked it up on google maps and was impressed. I obviously was running tighter than the roads would be, always on the inside, but it was also hilly so maybe those can discount each other... Anyway, the first lap would have been 4:50 pace and the second lap 5:00 pace, meaning I averaged 9:50 through the two mile for the first nearly 12 minutes of running!!!  Then I did 4 by 800 with 2:30 rest, in 2:18, 2:21, 2:22, 2:16. Thankfully my fibularis longus and brevis tendons, which had been acting up, felt fine the whole time. Then I did quick weights since I had to go.

Ankle hurt a little more today during the run. Hurt isn't the right word- I felt it. But it wasn't much worse than yesterday when I wasn't running. It still feels no worse while running than walking. I'll have to research this.

Today I was thinking about my peroneal tendons a lot. Despite this, I miraculously felt fine once again during the workout. I think this takes the cake for weirdest running issue to date. Afterwards I did some stretches and stuff to strengthen them. I'm also gonna take NSAIDs, elevate, and ice. The treatment is quite similar to Achilles treatment actually. Today we did 4 by 800 with 2:30 rest and 4 by 400 with 90 seconds rest, with 5 minutes in between. At first I didn't feel so great but I warmed up throughout the workout. (2:18, 2:16, 2:16, 2:16) and (64, 62, 62, 60). Hopefully I have enough speed to run a fast 3K next week.

A little over 11 miles. Today I felt a lot better, HALLELUJAH!! I don't regret skipping my double or strides though, "a healthy runner beats an injured one every time" -Ed Eyestone

Well, that's a wrap! I'm thankful today that my peroneal tendons seem to be doing just fine. I kept on keeping my pace up even though I had no intention to just because to be honest, it gets kind of boring to run that far if you're just chilling! Also nice that it wasn't too cold. I ran in the afternoon since I was in charge of a temple trip this morning.

Where to start... 

Workout today meant no time for weights before FHE. We were supposed to do 3 by (1000,800,400) with 90 seconds rest in between and 3-4 min rest between sets. The problem is, as a group, we are  or very consistent. Derek, Aidan, Josh and I could all be a bit better with pacing. The workout got changed on our second K when we went slow. I felt like we were warming up in the middle lap of that. Oh well, I had hoped for a shorter workout anyway so I'm not complaining. 

(2:56, 2:17, 65) followed by 5 minutes rest, then (2:59, 2:14, 64). Then we took like 10 minutes off and ran (63, 63). Yea so not really sure what to make or that workout. Oh well! 

I ran in spikes for my last two 400s. That felt kind of uncomfortable tbh. I might try out my flats on Wednesday. I'm not sure if I would get used to them or not, but afterwards my hip felt a little funky. It's great though to put them on for the first time since 2017!!
