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.

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.
