Strength session today. Lots of reasons this workout should have stunk today but negative thoughts don't make champions. 3 miles WU, 6x600m with long active recovery, not to recover as much as just tire me out. Good heat training today too. My times were 1:59, 1:54, 1:49, 1:55, 1:50, 1:51. Legs felt like lead from two days off. Arches hurt the first two miles then it got better. Long CD to the dorm, relaxed for a little while, then ran to the rec and did the normal stretching/core routine, plus a fun strength session.

7 miles easy w/ strides after. My left arch killed during it. Rolled that hard, massaged it, and stretched after.

Set a PR today... 15:56. Not running. You solve every square from 1-100 in your head. It might not sound too bad, but I'm only taking criticism from those with 15:55 or better. Figuring out 89x89 in seconds takes some energy!

Speed workout today! Warmed up about 4 miles. Workout was 3x150, 1x200 w/ walking back to the start serving as rest. I felt congested and sort of sick today, and it was extremely windy, but I made the best of it. 150's went 19.70, 19.38, and 19.75. I didn't feel as fresh as normal, I didn't stretch or do strength the past few days so that might be why. 200m I went hard and ran a 25.38. I wanted to break 25 but 25.38 is still really fast for me. I'll just not worry about it, I'll get faster as I get stronger. Ran a 300m for fun after in 54, and did about 7 miles of CD for 12 for the day. Lots of stretching, core, and strength after.

4 miles in the zantes, but my arches really hurt so I went and switched to the structures and felt fine. Not sure if I was pushing the pace or just low on energy from skipping breakfast and lunch for homework

Another warm session today. 3 miles WU, 16x150 @800m pace w/ 100m recovery. Was trying to hit mid 21's, so about 1:55 pace. First 2 were about a second slow, then the next one was too fast, then the next few were on pace, but felt harder than they should. After about 7 I realized that the cones I assumed were used to mark 50m's were closer to 60m, and I used the 300m hurdle marks to set them at the right distance after that. After that, I hit 21 for the next 7 and it felt much more manageable. Last 2 I hit 22.04 and 22.09, but that was only because of headwind. By the end I was starting to be able to hit the pace and it feel pretty natural, which was the goal of the workout. I told myself I'd try to get 16 but if my form started to break down at all I'd stop. Felt good on everything, so another good workout! CD for 10. No weights after, I wanted to focus on homework. This semester is going to be challenging, which is a word I haven't used in reference to academics in quite a while.
