AM - actually did a run during lunch break, but I'm adding some work mileage in too. Felt pretty good. I don't work for the next couple days which I am BEYOND excited for.

PM - 5. I haven't hydrated or stretched really at all these past few days, plus I haven't gotten too much sleep so I didn't feel the greatest.

AM - 15 minutes easy + strides. Wanted to do some more but my left calf was tightening up. I'm gonna work on my hydration a lot these next few hours so I can have a good fast workout tomorrow morning with Kenny. My first 2 strides were 35 and 31.1 which I was pretty happy with because I didn't feel the best and they were in to the wind. Didn't time the lasts 2. Excited for tomorrow, I usually have fun on 400's.

PM - 4 miles jogging + some easy strides.

AM - Jogged around for a bit and met up with Clayton for a speedier workout this morning. What was on deck was 10x400m getting progressively faster and 4x150m. Just as we finished warming up it started to rain and get windy so that was annoying. First 3 400m's were 69(going 37, 32), 65(31, 34), and 67. After the 3rd repeat, I decided to just move to the 150's. I should have just toughed it out, but running with Clayton was a little demoralizing. He still has all of his fitness from track, so on this faster stuff he can whoop me. 150's were fun. Lately getting under 29 on the 200m's has been lucky for me so when I averaged 20.2(26 second 200m pace) and felt in control the entire time I was pretty happy. S/O to Clayton for running a 17 second 150m. Hopefully when we do some longer stuff I can get my revenge. He said he'd make a blog soon so S/O to him. CD for 7.

PM - I woke up(9PM) feeling dissatisfied so I decided to do some 600's on the track. I was planning on doing a few at tempo pace. After a couple I felt tired from just waking up and not eating since maybe 7AM so I decided if the next one was under 2:00 I'd end there. Went hard and did a 1:42. Pretty good for me as 600's go, especially for early preseason, and having a workout earlier/no food in me. Good times!

AM - 5 miles with 4x200m strides at the end. Only timed the 3rd one, that one took 30 seconds. Easy pace today was 6:20's. I don't think that's going to be a normal thing for a little while, but it was a good time. Starting to get pretty trim, I've lost nearly 20 pounds since finals.

PM - 5 at McCoy with Trevor. I could tell he wasn't in distance running shape(he's a basketball player after all), so I took him up a super super steep shorter trail for revenge for all the times he's made me push a pace when he biked behind me.

AM - on my lunch break I ran to Legacy, and did 4 laps continuous winding it up(1 lap=1/3 of a mile). Laps were 2:15, 1:59, 1:42, and 1:40. Tried to stay relaxed and easy on the last lap until the last 100 or so, but that was too late to bring the pace under 5:00. 5:21 for the mile on the last three laps. Tired from work so it was good.

PM - jogged 4.

AM - Ran a little over 2 miles to Legacy, ran a lap in 1:26(4:18 pace), and ran back. Felt good, I listened to my body and ran probably high 7's at the fastest yesterday, and today I was running low 6's on the easy parts, just because that's what felt easy today. I've seen a lot of guys on this blog whom push a fast pace on every run, and they all get injured, and when they aren't injured they aren't running that fast, which I find correlation in. The only exception I've seen so far was Ryan Raff, because he was the only person who actually had the times and was in shape enough to have low 6's as his pace on an easy run. Wanted to come through in 1:36 on the lap(4:48 pace), but I could tell I was going too quick about halfway through so I just sustained. I didn't stretch or anything, just did 2 miles, a couple short strides, and took off. Was not that hard of an effort, definitely could have held it through an 800 at least. Exciting stuff.

PM - 5 easy

AM - 5 easy

PM - was going to do a big workout, but I slept in too late to get in a good workout. I had a little time though so I got in some 150's and 200's. Gonna focus on strength over speed these next two weeks.
