AM- 5 easy miles in the morning. Notice how "easy" was crossed out? That's because I wore Pure Cadence. I hadn't ran in them in a while so I assumed that I may havce misjudged them. Nope. My legs felt awful, despite taking yesterday off. No traction in the shoes either so that blew. 7:11 pace

PM - 8 miles. I had two bowls of some super-fiber cereal so I felt pretty awful during the run lol RIP my intestines(update; those two cups contained about 200% of the daily fiber value). Anyway I ran up to the U, then the base of the mountain, then four miles down there. Not the "best I've ever had" -Drake. I think I'm coming down with something, might not do the usual core tonight, I feel pretty awful right now

Rained hard today, so I ran at the indoor facility. A few laps to warm up, then 6 miles alternating between fast and slow. First hard mile was 5:02, second and third were 5:28. I was going to do a fourth hard mile, came in at the 400 at 77, feeling good, but I hit the turn and my ankles told me to stop #anklewhisperer. Nothing better than 90 degree turns every 15 seconds. Easy miles were high 7's. Cooldown after to add to 9. Austin, Aaron, Jacia, and Kyrie were there doing an easy workout, I saw them run jog like an 800, but I think they were doing core. Anyway their sublime obliviousness made a few close calls take place. Just got my ACT back, and happy to say I'm now at 33. @masonwalkrun got a 31 so that's sick. Too bad he's going to a community college in colorado or UVU or something. Excited to give him a little surprise at NXRSW.  "I've been working with the negatives to make a better picture" - Drake

I was going to go a little easier today on my distance run, but on my drive there I saw Aaron and Austin doing a tempo run and I decided I could rest when I'm at the Hotel Del Coronado. Ended up being a bit over 9 miles. It was a weird run. I went out quick on the first mile(uphill), and then felt really sluggish on miles 2-4, which were oddly enough the major downhill miles. After that had to climb up until mile 8 which was downhill, then the last mile was uphill again. Splits; 










Avg pace 6:32. Felt really great during it, except the last two miles I had to go to the restroom, and I wore the Uintah team shorts, which really arent meant for more than 5k comfort-wise haha. Cooldown to add to 10 for the day. There's no way I could have done this like a month ago, but I'm not complaining. I hate to say it but maybe fading away from the team could be prosperous. I still want to compete with them, Mason and I have a 4x400 finals title to reinstate at simplot after getting 11th last year, but I think training on my own is better for my own benefit? I haven't raced yet though, we'll have to see at Nike. "She says they miss the old Drake, girl don't tempt me" - Drake

My legs were pretty tired, so I just wanted a good quick run before my concert with Emily #babe. 5 miles at 5:55 pace, and it actually felt not awful, albeit a tear in my sock hurting my foot a bit. 2 mile @OMP from the park to the high school after massaging my calves for a few seconds. Once I got there I stretched a bit more, and Mason and Christian got back from their run, so I talked to them for a while which was pretty fun, but the cold had me shiverin'. Rocked at the concert with Emily, then played some sick poker with Stockton and Christian, along with a few others.

Timed a time trial for Mason, Aaron, Christian, and a few others with Kyrie. Aaron slaughtered the race, coming in at an 18:40, but I think it was actually 3.2 miles. Christian and Mason got 19's. I opted not to run because of my tempo yesterday, and I'm glad I did. My legs were pretty shot for the run. 8 miles in the freezing cold, I think I just barely averaged 6's.

4 miles, core, and weights at the rec center that night. "What am I doing? Oh that's right I'm doing me" -Champagnepapi -Drake

I would have done a shakeout in the morning, but I had my day date for Sadies in the morning. I had to walk like a mile down the road because my date couldn't find my house. Then I heard my "Hotline Bling" - Drake. I wont add it to the mileage though, it was more of a wanderer thing than a runner thing. Anyway it was way fun, we did a "chopped" sort of competition to make breakfast and Alyssa and my own dish were quite delectable. Except I ate too much french toast-biscuits. so I didn't feel that great when I got home, and procrastinated the run a bit. Oh well.

Mile warmup, then 12x400 at 5k pace or quicker, so hopefully 73-77, also working to get my breathing down for Nike and Footlocker. Times:













and then a 200 in 34. 200m rest in between each repeat. My watch died before the start of the first 400, so that was nifty. I had to run with my phone in my hand instead. After the third repeat Austin and his college runner/coach/DIImentor he has came to the track for him to race an 800, so my paces got a bit quicker, but I didn't die out like I kind of expected to. Overall I think I hit them a bit too quick, that translates to a 14:50 5k, but it was a good hard workout, and no regrets. Had to run a super quick 3 mile cooldown in order to get prepared for Sadies, just got back. It was dope. Alyssa, Stockton, Emily, and I watched Psych for a good bit, I ate a ton of bread while everyone had ice cream sundaes #lactoseintolerantprobs and got pretty turnt for a white person at the dance. I went ham, and got a good workout, my calves are mad sore. Shoutout to Alyssa for asking me I had a great time!! #Librarianperks
