I lost track of time and went running before it could get too dark. When it gets dark up there it is actually scary to be alone because you never know if a bear or moose is going to pop out and attack you. So I avoided that the best I could :)

Switched back to the reservoir and dragged my cousin along. I don't think he liked it.

The loop again (added down the welling additions that's why it's 3.25 instead of 2.25) by myself, no four wheeler following me, I learned why I have my cousins follow me. Saw a huge moose and it was quite scary. It stared me down. Glad it didn't charge at me.

Forced myself to run. Vacation makes it hard to stay motivated. It was at sunset so half was in the dark, but my cousin Annie followed me on the four wheeler.

Cemetery run. I gotta get back into the swing of things. First 2 miles were fine then I fell off the group and slowed down a lot. I think I am dehydrated. I haven't had as much to drink, especially while I was at my cabin. Felt terrible, almost like trying to get back into shape, except I can't have lost that much fitness. I ran last week, even if it was for only 3 miles or so. Maybe I just need a couple of days to get back into the routine. Good news is my knee hasn't bothered me at all since last week.

I guess Bill can't coach us for a week, so we had no coach. We went to the frisbee golf course and ran around there a while and then came back to Cottonwood Complex. That was 3.5. We played a game called  box Sarah in. That lasted about 20 seconds :) then a few of us ran the course. Barefoot. It actually felt nice. Got me to 6.5.

Met at Sunnyside and did a lap, then Shriners run. When we got to the first fountain, the boys wanted to wait for everyone else before we went back, Eleanor needed to get back and I was tightening up so I went with her. Turns out the boys went to the second fountain, but oh well. Went to 5.25 with Eleanor then added up Sunnyside to get to 6. I'm kind of sore, which is weird. Today's run felt good. We started out slow but when I was with Eleanor we picked it up. Felt much better than earlier this week. I find that when I'm home I hydrate much better than when I'm out of town. I think that's part if why I feel a lot better today.

Today we did VA loop and then two laps in the cemetery. I ran with Eleanor and Chris for most of it. After the second lap in the cemetery I had to go to the bathroom so I stopped at a porta potty and continue back to Sunnyside alone. Added to 5.

Today was the slurpee run! Except I cut it short so I could make it on time for work. So I ran to Sunnyside, warm up lap, then ran to the two 7-11s on 13th, then ran back home. Eleanor and I ran together because she was backing off on mileage, I had to got to work, worked out perfectly :) Barely made it to work on time though. I was going to go for a run again tonight but then I played kickball with my coworkers. I love my coworkers. It was a long day, on my feet pretty much the whole time.

AM:

Dang it's hot out. Sleeping in felt good until I went for my run. I did Wasatch/Thunderbird loop from my house. Along Wasatch I had to stop because I was exhausted and it was too hot. When I cooled down a bit I continued. I was going to do longer but the heat changed my mind. I will go again tonight, it'll be about the same tempurature but at least the sun won't be beating down on me.

Wasatch loop over to the zoo, then added up 13th to get to 10. I am super sore from yesterday, we went boating, and I went wake boarding and tubing, on the tube I was determined not to let go so I get sore muscles instead.

Liberty today, didn't get the memo that we were supposed to do our own runs today (probably because I was at girls camp) but 5 of us showed up. I did a lap warmup, a lap of fartlek to mix it up a bit, and a lap cool down.

Couldn't run this morning or else I would have, I had family pictures :/ I went later once it cooled down a bit but it was still hot. I went pretty slow, 8:30 average. But I wasn't in the mood to go fast. I did VA loop and Shriners run, then back the same way and a little farther along Foothill to get to 10. Knee bothered me for the first mile and a half, then warmed up and was fine. The last .75 it hurt again but in a different spot, more towards the other side. Rolled out and did core.

Cemetery run. Started slow and then settled into 7:30s and 7:40s, about 6 miles in I started to fall off the group even though we weren't going that fast. I tried to catch up for about another mile but wasn't making any progress. Last mile just gave up and backed off to 8:00 pace. I need to get my strength back. Ever since I hurt my knee I haven't felt as strong or in shape. I hope as I start climbing in mileage I will get it all back.

Pipeline! First half I lead the group, felt really good. Started to crash about 4 miles in but told myself to make it to the turn around and I'd have a break. Didn't slow down too much on that mile. We got there and Bill said to turn and go. Yeah I tried to hang back but Bill seemed to know exactly what I was thinking, he made me run with him. My positive thoughts were fading though and I didn't think I could make it back. When we got to rattlesnake Bill started us on a fartlek. I did two of them then stopped because my negative thoughts won. Now that I think about it, I made it farther with Bill than I had thought, I don't really know how much farther I expected it to be. It was only 4 miles farther from where I stopped. I should have just stayed with Bill. I know that if I had flipped the switch to positive thinking I would have been able to. I guess flipping that switch is one of my biggest struggles. Went pretty slow after I was by myself. I did something to my garmin by accident and tried to fix it while running but almost fell off the cliff trying, so I stopped after that.

Deseret News 10k. Would have liked it better as a 5k, my last half absolutely sucked. I saw Davis girls at the start and picked them out and hung with them, then I guess I got focused and went with the faster girl and we broke away from the other girls. I fell off of her, but tried to stay positive cause that's what gets me. Worked until about halfway down South Temple, when people started passing me. I would try to go with people every once in a while, but I sort of lost the umph I had at the start. Going along the parade route it took everything I had to just keep running, I am ashamed that I had the strongest desire to walk. I never did though. My last mile was a whooping 8:26. Yay hoo.  I was absolutely dead by then. But first 3 miles was 18:39! First mile 5:37, second split 11:42. Granted it was downhill but still. Good wake up call though, I haven't raced once since track State. I think I have the speed so once we start speed workouts my speed will be fine, I just gotta work on strength. Build up that mileage. I didn't really prepare well for this race, didn't feel ready. Sort of like I just hopped in at the last minute. I also raced in trainers cause I couldn't find my flats :(

So I kinda slept through my alarm until 10:30, which meant I missed practice.... Whoops. I feel bad. But when I sleep in I'm lazy so I wasn't motivated to go for a morning run. Plus I'm actually pretty sore, and my list of exuses was pretty long. So I went later at night when it cooled down a bit. It was still pretty hot but felt good compared to the middle of the day (we were outside all day for work.) It was probably the slowest 10 miles of my life but whatever. Why are my legs so dead? I guess the 10k was downhill but still... I shouldn't be this sore. I did VA loop and Shriners run, then had some crazy idea to run up the HUGE hill by the second drinking fountain. I guess I was feeling adventurous. But it literally never stopped. I expected it to be steep for a while then even out for a bit but no. I made it to the crosswalk then stopped for a minute (I think that was .2) and continued to 5 and turned around. The downhill hurt, and I'm not doing that again anytime soon. The view of the valley was beautiful though.

Cemetery loop. I only did one lap and I guess the others did two. But I added a mile with Eleanor to get to 8.

AM:

Shriners run. Felt pretty good. Nate took off after I caught the boys (I started a little late so I could get satellite) I started to go with him but decided not to. My legs were stiff and wanted to wait to push until I was more warmed up. After I got to the first fountain I picked up the pace. Went to the second fountain, turned and saw that the others came to the second fountain too! So I figured I could add even more mileage before they got back so I added the VA loop at the end and more in the park. Averaged 8:16.

PM:

Hot and windy. I got really frustrated because the first half I ran into the wind expecting to have it at my back when I turned, but the wind changed directions and I ran into it pretty much the whole time. Averaged 7:51.

Pipeline. Stayed with Clayton and Bill until about a half mile from the road. Felt a little tired, I haven't had much sleep the past couple of days.
