Today President Nelson went to BYU to speak to all the Young Adults, it was broadcast in the BYUI center and also on churchofjesuschrist.org. We got out of class early for it :) it was really cool, I especially liked when he started talking about the human heart and discovering that you can basically “turn off” the heart to repair it then turn it back on again. Especially because I had Anatomy and Physiology right before, the body is fascinating. Someone had asked him a while back while he was practicing medicine “what if it doesn’t work?” His response: “It always does!” He went on to explain that truth is truth, like how the law of gravity is always constant, the law of motion, etc. They’re simply always true. So too are the eternal truths he spoke about. Anyways, great meeting!
Today I went towards SH 33 and found a paved trail that followed the railroad tracks so I ran on that for a while. After a half mile I then decided to pick up the pace a little. I settled on a quickie mile. Up to that point I averaged 7:21.
Whooowee I’m out of shape. My body isn’t used to going faster anymore. I’ve also gained a few pounds over the last 6 months, whoops. Anyways, I hit 6:21. It definitely wasn’t an all-out mile and I kept it relaxed, but it was quicker than my normal runs. Then I turned and started heading back, whooo no wonder I was surprised about hitting 6:21 at that effort, the wind had been to my back! I’d say without the wind it would’ve been closer to 6:45-6:50. At least that’s what it felt like. The wind was pretty strong so on the way back I decided to do 10x1 minute pickups to distract me. The average pace (including both fast and slow) for that was 7:39.
