Was having an unusually hard time breathing. Strange because yesterday I noted how even my breathing was when I expected to have more difficulty with it since my time in the gym, but hey I'm not complaining! I'm glad to be getting into better shape. I remember how difficult it was to run 2 miles consistently after my mission and I'm so glad I'm over that! But today was a brief reminder of it. Not sure why it was so difficult, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was because of the air quality.

Just saw that KUTV ranked Salt Lake City the city with the worst air quality in the country. Go inversion! Like literally. You can leave.

Hamstring was hurting. It actually started hurting yesterday but I thought it was just tight. Same place as last year.

VA loop, 7:36 average. Went literally right after eating a ton of food and by the end it threatened to come back up.

VA loop. I was originally going to do more but my hamstring is hurting, so decided to shorten it. It has me kind of worried that the same spot is hurting after 5 months of not running at all... It should've healed and shouldn't be bothering me anymore.

Came down with something yesterday, was feeling nauseous and dizzy. Today the nausea is minimal, could finally eat something though I still feel really weird. Decided to try running, wasn't too sure how I'd do because I've nearly passed out a few times haha, but I made it home just fine :)

Still felt really weird. It's like that feeling you get when you step off a treadmill, except feeling like the ground is moving but not seeing it. It had me worried so I ran on the treadmill today in case I did fall (that could be a problem if I'm on the middle of the street haha) but the feeling was like ten times worse when I stepped off. Go figure.

I'll take today off. Last night after I ran it got pretty bad. Checked blood pressure this morning, it's normal (111/69) so I'm thinking it could be anemia? Who knows.

I'm feeling almost back to normal! That was really weird and I still don't know what it was. But I felt really good and relaxed today, haha I expected to have a harder time after 2 days off last week.

I realized midway through my run that a while back I registered for a 10k that happens to be this Saturday... do I feel unprepared? Yeah, you could say that. I haven't done a bit of speed and my mileage is pitiful. But it'll be a way to force me into a tempo workout, right?? I'm gonna go at it with a positive attitude and come away with a measure of where my fitness level is at, which I can use for comparison in the future.

But today I figured I could use a quicker paced run. So 1.32 miles in (about a minute after I realized the 10k was on Saturday) I started a tempo for the remainder of my run. I wasn't going for a specific pace, just a pace that felt comfortably fast and could keep up for 6 miles. Kind of a bad time to try, seeing as it was bitter cold, windy, and a complete blizzard by the end. Ended up with 7:06 average for the last 2.68 miles of my run and a 7:36 average overall. 50% pace, yeah! I think I'll try for 7:10 pace or under on Saturday based on today.
