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.

Total Distance

I worked out with Aidan, Mason, and Easton. We did a 8-5-3-2-1 fartlek. Aidan did a great job making sure we didn't get any more rest than we were supposed to. Fine by me. Unfortunately I got a little overzealous. This reminds me of a 1600 cutdown I did freshman year. On the 8 I thought I should be able to do the Helaman loop well under 5 flat pace again to start. I was right. I tried a little too hard though and hit the lap in 5:30 (4:40 pace). On the uphill to close I got a little slower. Then the 5 was about the same, but the 3-2-1 on the track were kind of weak. Ran one K on the 3, Hit 400 in 68 on the 2, and ran 64 for the 400. Couple things to improve: a) I was significantly ahead of my teammates. I need to find a way to still fight even when I'm not running with others. Having said that, my left Achilles was not doing hot. So I need to take care of that. B) When I came through the first lap so fast, I thought "dang this is fast I'm gonna pay for that". I know I went out hard, but I wasn't doing myself any favors mentally by telling myself I was gonna have a bad workout. Weights.
