Hopefully someday someone will do that with me). Maybe I went for a fast workout a little too soon.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 08 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Feb 07, 2018 <p>Uh oh, achilles didn&#39;t feel so hot. Tomrrow I&#39;ll either do a light workout on the intramurals, just run easy, or go to the gym.</p> Wed, 07 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Feb 06, 2018 <p>I ran towards the lake loop to begin my 5 mile tempo. I ended up deciding just to run the lake loop itself since it would be a lot more open than the river trail. However, running 5:20 pace is much different from 5:50 pace, and running the loop all on my own with the wind on my face soon gave me that feeling you get the first time you work out in a while. So I decided to make it a 10-5-3-2-1 fartlek instead, though I cut out the one to avoid hurting my Achilles. I don&#39;t have a pace, other than that my first mile was somewhere around 5:06, but I felt a whole lot better on the 5-3-2 than the first ten once my body started getting used to it and I got out of the wind.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 06 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Feb 05, 2018 <p>10 miles. Felt ok. Still planning on working out tomorrow!</p> Mon, 05 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Feb 03, 2018 <p>13 miles from my apartment up the canyon. 5:48 pace overall. 6:09 pace&nbsp;on the way up, 5:28 pace&nbsp;on the way back. I was definitely chilling a little more on the way out, but you should also factor in that the turnaround point is 300 feet higher in elevation than the start. So they way back felt pretty downhill. Well, I&#39;m super grateful to be back at it! Hopefully I can put some mileage in and get a lot faster. I&#39;m planning on running the Rex Lee Run 5K to see where I&#39;m at in early march. I&#39;ll plan on starting workouts next week!</p> <p>One other note is that I didn&#39;t feel like my body was totally crushed afterward. It was hard for sure, but I&#39;m excited to teach myself again to really get at it. It&#39;ll come.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 03 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Feb 02, 2018 <p>10 miles with Tanner. A little slower. It&#39;s really hard to find the balance of eating so that I don&#39;t feel hungry during my run, or like throwing up. Hopefully for my hard long run tomorrow I prepare well!&nbsp;</p> Fri, 02 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Feb 01, 2018 <p>10 miles. Felt fine. I&#39;m not sure why my toes are hurting. Perhaps it is related to the fact that I am running without insoles for the first time in years? I&#39;m not sure.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 01 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 31, 2018 <p>10 MILES!!! YAY!!!!!!! Felt a tad&nbsp;tender but totally terrific!&nbsp;</p> Wed, 31 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 30, 2018 <p>Felt some stuff on my left Achilles. I was gonna go back at 8 but I felt alright and wasn&#39;t limping so I kept going.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 30 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 29, 2018 <p>Ran with Zach and Tanner. It was fun. My left Achilles felt a little sore. Have to see how I feel domani.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 29 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 27, 2018 <p>I ran hard today! One hour. Didn&#39;t get my pace. My plan was to go a little hard. This happened very naturally. Right around 20 minutes I just started rolling.&nbsp;I feel like runners have a mental disorder- we like to hurt ourselves. I was so happy to get back to that feeling of exhaustion and pain that accompany running. Now time to recover and get back into it next week! Let&#39;s go!&nbsp;</p> Sat, 27 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Jan 26, 2018 <p>Good day. I tried to back off the pace a bit. I&#39;m not sure how much I actually did. Surely still sub 6:50 pace. My foot hurt again, and my left Achilles felt a twinge. I&#39;m mostly concerned about the foot though. I&#39;ll do some more research and take care of it&nbsp;</p> Fri, 26 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Jan 25, 2018 <p>Great run, my ice burns didn&#39;t hurt too bad and my Achilles&#39; were fine, but my right in we arch was still hurting. I&#39;ll ice it and take some ibuprofen.</p> Thu, 25 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 24, 2018 <p>Great run! 50 minutes. Only issue was my right arch, which I had arched extra to avoid stressing my Achilles yesterday (obviously not completely consciously, to use an old excuse, &quot;my body did it&quot;). With the pain there I obviously didn&#39;t do it again today but my Achilles was nonetheless fine.</p> Wed, 24 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 23, 2018 <p>45 minutes. Felt it, but at least it didn&#39;t get any worse&nbsp;</p> Tue, 23 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 22, 2018 <p>Didn&#39;t feel great but the soft surface helped again.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 22 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 20, 2018 <p>I think I went 45 on Saturday...</p> Sat, 20 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Jan 19, 2018 <p>Ran with Zach. Felt alright.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 19 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Jan 18, 2018 <p>45 min</p> Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 17, 2018 <p>40 minutes baby! Felt so good.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 17 Jan 2018 07:00:00
