Up to the zoo, then VA loop and a lap in the cemetery. 7:49 average. I have a painful cough, headache, sore throat, and bad congestion. Chest was burning on the run, not very fun. Hopefully I can get over it soon.

Happy New Year! 2018 will be a good one.

Wasatch loop to Sunnyside, 7:32 average. Felt drained of energy but headache and throat aren’t so bad. Hattie tested positive for strep so I’m hoping I don’t get that on top of what I have.

VA loop to 1300 E, over to Sugarhouse, a lap around, then back to my parents house along 1500 E. 7:47 average. Still don’t feel too great, but there is a little improvement. I’m hoping it’ll be gone by next week. I’m getting pretty pumped for track season! Our first meet is next weekend, if I travel it’ll be my first collegiate meet in two years. Kind of crazy, but this time around will turn out great!

Felt 10x better than I did two days ago. I still have a cough and congestion but I’m on the tail end of being sick, which is awesome. Energy is coming back. Ended up doing Wasatch + VA loop again, then back up to Foothill to add to 10. 7:13 average. I picked it up a lot on the second half, had 4 miles sub 7:00.

Last run in Salt Lake. Met Angie at Sugarhouse today, both of us felt kind of sluggish. We went along 1500 E to 900 S, down to 1300 E and to the Catholic Church, then back along 13th to the cemetery, a lap in there, and back to Sugarhouse. 7:47 average.

On an unrelated note, the Greatest Showman is a must see. Great music, best movie I’ve seen in a long time.

Had a bad sore throat and nausea, I was worried I caught Hattie’s strep. My mom caught it on Sunday too. So I went to the clinic and got tested, luckily I’m negative. Most likely I caught Tess’s cold, hooray! But Paul told me to stay home from practice and get healthy. When I asked for the workout he said, “It’s called don’t do it so you get healthy” hahaha okay then :) instead I took a nap and it was the longest and greatest thing ever. Ended up doing a few easy miles later on Main Street, 7:45 average. New shoes feel great, my others were shot.

Went to practice prepped to run the 6 minute test, then come to find out that coach doesn’t like us running with sore throats? When he told me I couldn’t run the 6 minute test I’ll admit I was pretty sad. I’ve never done it before and was really excited to do it, felt like I would do well and wanted to see where I’m at. Oh well. Positives are that I got to see the girls again and they all killed it in the 6 minute test, as did the guys!

Another day of little mileage.

5 miles on Canyon with a few girls, turned with Ashley and Alison, 7:02 average. Barely made it in time for the team meeting. Weights later.

I’ll be doing Steeplechase this season, I suppose that steeple could be my race. I’m tall (5’8”) so I think that’ll be an advantage, and I ran great times in the 3200 in high school, which I’m pretty sure is a good indicator of a time you can run in the 3k steeple.

Steeplechase practice in the morning. I’m starting to get excited for it, I’ve only done steeple once and it was pretty fun. I have terrible form that’s for sure, but the drills and stretches we do will help with that.

Regular practice in the afternoon, today was a 60% on Dikes. We were split into two groups, I was in the second at first. First mile was warmup at 7:19 then started the 60. Our group’s range was 6:35-6:50, I think the other group’s range was 6:15-6:45. Or at least that’s the normal range? 60% pace really isn’t too bad, it got kind of tough at the end but that’s mostly because I was having bathroom issues. Feel good about how I ran considering how I felt. Hit the first mile at 6:37, then after a little into the second mile the faster group was right behind us and Coach told Josie, KaSandra and I to flip for a second and run with them. I stuck on the group for another mile-ish, then started to fade while the cramps hit but I still tried to work through it. My splits went: 6:37, 6:30, 7:15 (good uphill in this one), 6:22 (good downhill), 6:36. Worked with Ash at the end which was real nice. Then strides after. Did another mile on the track but had to call it quits after that because my stomach really hated me.

AM: 4 miles easy

PM: 90 second pickups on Cross Hollows. 6 miles total, watch died so I didn't get the pace. I was exhausted though, I don't think I've eaten enough today. Hip was tight, rolled out and stretched.

What a day. 

AM: Steeple practice then 2 miles easy

PM: Probably the hardest workout I’ve ever done, not gonna lie. Definitely the hardest since returning from my mission. I was already tired because I wasn’t smart and stayed up late last night, plus my legs were still dead from I don’t know what. But I went into the workout with a positive attitude and focused on one thing at a time. It was really tough and I gave up mentally at one point, then just decided to push through it and get my butt into gear, no excuses. Reminded me that mentality is everything, I finished strong and I’m happy with that.

Warmups then a mile warmup and strides, then started the workout. Started with a 3k, Coach put me in the second group and our goal was 12:00. I hit 11:43 (6:03 mile split), I really struggled pacing because I was on my own. Splits were all over the place. Next was 6x400s with 90 seconds active recovery. Then 5x400s with 2:00 recovery. Then 3x400s with a lap recovery. I hit

1) 87, 86, 84, 84, 85, 86 (goal pace 88)

2) 91, 90, 85, 84, 86 (goal pace 84)

3) 81, 81, 82 (goal pace 78 or 79)

I know the paces weren’t that quick, but with such a long workout it definitely got tough at the end.

I’m satisfied with it, definitely didn’t do what we were supposed to but I worked hard and that’s what matters. I’m happy that I switched gears and gritted it out instead of letting the 6 more 400s (I actually thought we had 9 or 10 more at that point lol, don’t know what I was thinking) overwhelm me into running 90s for the rest of the workout and/or dropping out. That’s a win in my book.

1 mile cool down. Ice bath after.
