4 miles at Liberty Park, 7:56 average. It was quite hot, I should start running earlier. I’ve lost a lot of fitness from my “break” time and I want to start increasing my miles and being more consistent. To start, I’m making it my goal to run every day this week. I know that’s sorta lame and isn’t hard, but I need to get back in the habit of making time for my run rather than running if I find time later in the day or skipping if I don’t feel like it. It’s been a good break to get away from the high intensity training I’m used to but I’d still like to be in decent shape, which I’m really not in right now. I was surprised at how uncomfortable it was, I want to get back to where 6-8 miles feels comfortable then build off of that until 10 miles does.

I want to go with the high miles low intensity approach because I do find it more enjoyable and I did find more success with it in high school. I’m better at long distances anyways, Ashley Hawks told me when I ran with her a few weeks ago that she was always impressed with how well I could pace/how even I could hit splits my freshman year at SUU. I’d forgotten that it was my strong suit and was a little surprised, but she did have a point. In high school I was the girl everyone sat on in races because I could pace well and then they’d kick with 400 left and outkick me. Speed isn’t my strong suit. So taking that into consideration, I want to train for something that I know is my stronger suit. I actually loved running far in high school and not caring about how fast I went. Just running for as many miles as I wanted. My longest run ever was 18 (or 18.5?) miles. I want to be able to do that again. 

It’s kind of awesome to be in control of my training and to be able to choose how I run. And especially to run because I want to, not because I have to. I definitely want to run more half marathons and one day I do want to brave a marathon. But not until I’m at high mile weeks. I’m thinking my first real half won’t be until next spring so I can build up a strong base for it, then I’ll go from there. It might get difficult because of classes (I’ll be applying for BYUI’s Physical Therapist Assistant program in the spring and really do need to focus more on school than running to have the best chance of being accepted, and then the program itself is very rigorous) but I’m going to do the best that I can.

Started at Sunnyside park and did VA loop, then added up to foothill and back. I didn’t have my watch on me, so I didn’t get pace and I’m just guessing on the distance. Just getting out and running today was an accomplishment, I was close to deciding not to go because it was already hot, 92*. It’s supposed to get up to 100* today, which I’m not used to. I need to start going earlier in the mornings before it’s in the 90s ha. I felt a lot better than yesterday though so that was nice

Man, I’d wanted to run every day this week. Yesterday I was super busy with a couple jobs and a few things for BYU-Idaho, plus creating a new resume so I can start applying for jobs in Rexburg. I kinda took my scholarships at SUU for granted, now I’m trying to apply for new ones at BYUI but you know, most of the deadlines have passed.

I’m super happy though because I was on the waitlist for Anatomy and Physiology (every single section was full, about 6 or 7 sections- each with 140 seats) but yesterday I finally got enrolled!! If I hadn’t been able to my whole timeline would’ve been thrown off haha. So I’m really happy it worked out.

Anyways, today I ran to Cottonwood Complex and did 2 hill repeats on rollercoaster, starting from the double trunk tree at the top of Bessie. They ended up being .3 miles each. The first was 1:54 and second was 1:50. It’s been a looong time since I’ve run these hills, brought back some memories

My mom and sisters Millie and Tessa came home from our cabin today, which was a surprise. I thought they were coming home tomorrow. Anyways, then another surprise! My mom had bought them both some shorts and said something like “so you can go running.” Then Tessa and Millie both got excited, I was like what? So surprised. They’re 7. Usually it’s Hattie that’ll MAYBE come with me for a mile or two. But she doesn’t like running much, mainly uses it to condition for soccer. Anyways, my mom said they could run if I went with them :) but only a short ways. Millie and Tessa has to take walking breaks, mainly because they sprinted hahaha. Coming back I told them it’s easier if they go slower, tried it then Millie was like wow it is easier! Haha. Tessa didn’t have to stop much but had to stop to wait for Millie and I, we had to stick together lol. We went .75, at the end Tessa immediately requested we go again tomorrow or sometime and go longer, and that she go alone so she didn’t have to stop haha. Tess is very athletic. Millie wanted to go “just a little bit longer” next time. 

Anyways, afterwards I started VA loop but did an out and back instead. 3.25 miles alone

I was incredibly short on time, today I have back to back jobs. I also promised my dad I’d mow the lawn this weekend and forgot about it yesterday so I needed to get it done today. So, I did it then ran as far as I could before I had to get ready and leave. 3 miles, 7:31 average. It was hot and windy
