AM: My peeps are back in town! Cedar is populated again hahaha. All those college students really do make up a lot of the population. Hospital loop with Ashley, Maddy, Morgan, Kamryn and Julieta. We were cruising the first half of the run, the second and third miles were both right around 6:50. Once we were to the hospital I started to die and the last mile or two I was sucking wind. 7:31 average.

PM: 3.25 with Julieta, 7:32 average.

AM: 4 miles with the girls before all of today's team meetings, it's so great to have people to run with! 7:31 average.

PM: Campus/Main Street loop. Wasn't going to go for a second run so I could rest up a bit before the progression run but I was itching to go for some reason. So I just relaxed and ran at a comfortable pace. Wanted to go for more and do canyon run or something but I refrained. 7:35 average.

AM: Progression run today! Considering I haven't really done any speed and am still coming back, increasing mileage and intensity, I'm happy with how I did. I made it 2 progressions, was pulled right before the third progression started. Looking back on my freshman year I had only made one progression and two laps, so I improved despite coming back from several months of no running at all (plus I packed on the pounds lol) and a solid year of no competition. This years team is crazy good, the last time we had that many people finish the progression run was the 2012 team, our best team ever. I'm excited for what that means for the future, it'll probably mean less traveling for me this season but I don't mind! As I improve I can make my way back up to top 7. This'll mean we have a shot at Nationals in the coming years! Also, I made it to camp! Was 14th overall in the progression run. My freshman year I was 8th with having only completed two laps of the second progression, if that gives you any idea of how our team has improved. Ahh so stoked, getting really excited for this year!

Just a run-down of what the progression run entails:

3 laps at 9:00 pace (2:15/lap)

Small block at 8:00 pace (8:31, so just over a mile? Not sure).

3 laps at 7:00 pace (1:45/lap)

Progression 1- 4 laps at 6:30 pace (97)

Progression 2- 4 laps at 6:20 pace (95.6)

Progression 3- 4 laps at 6:10 pace (94)

1 lap at 93

1 lap at 92

1 lap at 91

4 laps all out.

Total miles: 7.34.

Obviously I didn't finish this year but I'm excited because I know I can next year, or maybe even in December if we do it again :) PS calves are dead.

PM: Left for camp! 2 miles on the trail up at Brian Head.

AM: 1 mile shakeout. Calves hurt so bad, maybe should've done more cool down yesterday.

PM: 7 miles at Navajo Lake. So beautiful! 8:00 average, trail was a bit more technical in some parts and I'm quite happy not to have fallen (though I caught myself once!)

Marathon run! Coach put an emphasis on this being a more casual run, pace didn't matter, so I ran where I felt comfortable. 8 miles, 8:07 average. I'm pretty sure Angie and I took the wrong road at one point, but in my defense I followed coach's van haha (he had just driven past me). I'm surprised at how I'm handling the altitude (10,000 ft), my freshman year I struggled and expected the same for this year, but nope! I'm all good :)
