Patrick was gonna let me go up to 6 today, but it was hurting a little. Asked Patrick if we were going for pain free or if I could run on just a little bit of pain, and we're going for pain free. Whoops, in that case maybe shouldn't have been running at all... biked instead. 

Pool: warmup, 20 minutes at 80%, 10 minutes at 60%, 10 minutes at 80%. Cool down.

Hip is fine when not running, start running and it's a little bit different. Did the warmups again, since there's technically still pain I couldn't run. Biked 3 miles. 

Caught my roommate's cold. Throat hurts, head hurts, nose is congested, I sound like a dying horse, can't breathe, can't sleep, it's a good time.

Pool: cut the workout short at 25 minutes because my head was killing. 60% with a few pickups.

Well, I accidentally slept through practice... and all the way until 11... nearly missed going to work but it's all good. With the considerable lack of sleep from the night before I'd say I needed it. Maybe it'll help me recover faster, who knows? Patrick said I could run 6 today if my hip felt good. It did, my chest and throat far outweighed any pain in my hip. But, I cut it short at 5 because my chest and throat were burning. I know, I know, I should've stuck out the last mile, there's no excuse for it other than not wanting to induce any more pain. Today's just not my day. 

Pool: warmup, 2 sets of 6 minutes at 60%, 6 minutes at 80%. Cool down.

Hip feels good, decided to do another 5. Wasn't the most enjoyable with strong winds and sickness, but it was still nice to finally be running again.

Hip was feeling good, did the form mile (practice was switched to 7:30 today because of daylight savings and I missed the memo, glad I texted Kamryn last minute. Was 15 minutes late so I totally missed the warmups but oh well). Still felt good so Nate said I could do the workout, I was stoked. 400s are my favorite. I was also a bit nervous because Iím still coming back and I knew I wouldnít hit good times, but better to do what you can, right? Paul later told me I could only do 4 which helped my nerves because that seemed more manageable right off the bat. Mile warmup then started, I hit 82, 80, 81, 82. 90 seconds rest in between each. Then cooled down to 6. Hip felt good! Chest was burning, thank goodness Nate had a cough drop.

Pool: 35 minutes at 60%

50% today, I turned at 2.5. We did Walmart Canyon, 7:16 average. Itís been a while since Iíve gone that quick, feels good to be back and running. Hip was slightly painful today but... ran through it. Itís not bad and doesnít feel any worse afterwards than before. Patrick still wants me to take tomorrow off, then can up miles to 6 on Thursday. Exercises later in the afternoon.

Warmups, then mile warmup and strides. The workout was 50/80 today, but I could only do half. It's continuous, first 50 I was anxious I guess so had to keep slowing down to stay at pace. It was on the turf, went out and back 50ish meters to compensate for shorter distance, then straight into 80 on the track. I took it out way too fast, goal pace was 6:15-6:30. I hit 85 first lap then continuously slowed down. It was a bit rough, but first fast mile back in over a month (not counting last weeks 400s) I'd say it's alright. I definitely have work to do but I was in the range with a 6:16 so I'm happy. Then a mile cool down and 35 minutes at the pool.

Out and back on Canyon run, felt some sharp pain in my kneecap so didn’t go to 6 today. I’m also feeling the time off on Saturday and slow runs last week (ice and running don’t go well together)

Sheesh, I am out of shape. Kind of discouraging, but time to remotivate and work hard for track season. I’m excited to actually compete again, and hopefully I can hit some fast times. 

Today I had class while my group was practicing. This week is a “week of effort,” and since I came late I ended up running with the other group and did their workout. I think coach split us up into 800/1500 and 1500/5k groups, and so do Ashley, Maddy and Kamryn. To be honest, I like shorter/faster speed and the 800 group does more on the track in my experience, so I'm content with it for the time being, but since I'm a 5k runner I'm hoping that I'll still do a few longer workouts later on.

60%, I was sucking wind. 3 miles of it for me, mile warmup and cool down. My fastest mile was a 6:41 if that says anything, yep it sure sucked. I’m hoping by next week it’ll get better. Knee still hurt but felt better than yesterday. Patrick says it’s tendinitis, awesome. IT band is also a bit tight, might be contributing but that’s hurt worse before so it’s not the true culprit. On the bright side, no pain in my hip!

On an unrelated note, I’m back down to the same weight I was before I left on my mission, so I only have 3 more pounds to go to be in my “optimal weight” range!

Had class during practice, so I did the workout on my own earlier. I was expecting to be completely alone but Coach ended up timing me which was a pleasant surprise. Did the warmups, then mile warmup, then strides and started. Workout was 6x400s at 85 with 60 seconds active rest. I worked hard, struggled much more than I should have but I put in the effort and that’s what matters. Hit 85, 81, 85, 85, 88, 88. Averages out at 85.3. After the 4th I was struggling big time, but pushed through. It was hard to do on my own, but also really great because I was the only one Coach had to time and he’s very positive. Really helped me through the workout. Coach is awesome, I’m so lucky to have a good team and great coaches. Cooled down to 5 after.

My right leg is sore from yesterday, left slightly so but not nearly as much as my right. Strange, maybe an imbalance of strength? Oh well.

Was tired today, looks like I can't do less than 8 hours of sleep. Welp, sometimes you gotta live a little, right? Wednesday nights are one of the only times that Daniel's free.

Today's workout wasn't as hard as I was expecting, which was nice. I got there after the laps of warmups because I had class, but jumped in for stretches. We did a block lap then straight into 70% run for 2 miles. I actually felt pretty decent, am happy with how I did. First 3ish laps it was Kamryn and I in the front for our group. First lap was a 94, coach told us to slow down. Next a 96 (3:10), then a 98 (4:48), then I picked it back up to 96 (6:24 for the first mile, Kamryn had dropped back by this point). Coach stopped yelling my splits once Josie caught up and passed me, I should've just gone with her but I was relaxed and had a good rhythm and just wanted to stay at my current pace. I know, bad bad bad. Maybe one day I'll learn. Ended with a 13:06, so 6:42 second mile. Last two laps were where it began to hurt, but I worked through it. Definitely didn't feel all out by any means though, was nice to just relax and run.

2 miles cool down to get to 5.
