Flagpole to Flagpole run, once we got to Presidents circle we zig-zagged up to the U track and did two laps, then up to 11th Avenue and a little past the fire station, then Shriners run back to the school. I felt so much better than I did on Saturday. It was relaxed at 7:58 average. Did my core (except instead of 3 sets of 20 push-ups like Bill wanted I shortened it to 3 sets of 15. At least I can do real push-ups now. But I did the rest right!)

Ran to Sugarhouse, workout was 6x800s. Each started with a downhill and ended uphill, going on the road from the top of Poker hill and ending at the top of the first hill at State. Then .25 recovery and back to the "finish" which was now the start and the next 800 was the opposite direction. My quads are kind of sore so the pounding on the downhill hurt a lot. I worked the flat and especially the uphills, effort wise it was a good workout. Times went 3:01, 2:58, 3:02, 3:00, 3:01, 2:57. Felt like I was gonna puke after the third one but worked through it. Maybe I shouldn't have had those barbecue chicken sandwiches for lunch, but why turn them down? Maybe I need to start watching what I'm eating. Now that I think of it I've had a lot of junk lately! Did my core!

I am SO. SORE. Like I could barely walk up and down the stairs at school without wincing. Oddly it's mostly my right quad, my left is still sore but doesn't hurt nearly as bad as my right. Ran down to Fairmont and did 10 strides, then to Liberty and did laps on the grass and back up 900 S. to the school. Then added to 11. It was relaxed, 7:57 average.

Ran to the school, then for the run we went to South Temple and down to T street, then Avenues run (stride up the hill to the next Avenue, turn left and recover down to the next street and zig zag up to 11th Avenue. Hills get steeper as you go.) Worked hard on those. Then we went up the hill to JCC and up the hill on the trail above JCC, took Legacy bridge way back to the school. Added to 12. I didn't realize how bad the inversion was until we got above it, you wouldn't know there are mountains across the valley cause they are completely covered by the polluted air. Gross.

Before we left for Utah State we did a 2 mile shakeout on VA Loop. Warmed up 2 miles with a few pick ups. Almost missed my race! So I didn't get to stretch like I wanted but oh well. Legs were a little tight to begin with. Race started quick, 800 was 2:35ish, felt fast but not like I was dying. I like died the last 400, should have worked it but I mentally crashed. It went by so fast. Time was 5:28. Half of the race I wasn't even thinking about what I was doing, I just sort of went out and ran it. Then when it got to the 5th and 6th laps I started to hurt and didn't want to. It's frustrating for me because I know I have to hurt. But for a first meet I'm happy with it, I know it's gonna be my slowest mile time of the year because I'm gonna keep improving. I'm going sub-5:20 at BYU in two weeks. Maybe even PR there!

After cheering on everyone else we went for a cool down, 2.25 miles. Then hung out and a while later warmed up a mile for the 3200. My knee had bothered me a bit in the mile and on the warmup so Bill massaged it. Then two strides. Ran in flats to make it easier on my legs. Bill had said to separate from the others fast so I did that. Ran a 79 first 400. First mile was 5:47. Then I knew I had a good gap and could back off a lot and still win. So that's kind of what I did. It was kind of a lonely 2 mile. I could have sworn I lapped everyone but somehow second place was 7 seconds behind me... Oh well. Time was like 12:20. Ha. That'll be my slowest of the year too. I'm not ever going above 12 in the 3200 again this year.

Cooled down a mile inside then went out with everyone for 2.25. Afterward we went to Maddox where we set the record for the most rolls eaten. The waiter said no one had made it past the 4th bowl. Challenge accepted! Most of the credit goes to Garek and Jakob, I'm impressed. Also congrats to Garek for 2nd in the 1600 and 1st in 3200.

2015 is gonna be a great year, I can feel it!
