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.

Was up late again finishing a lab report. Yep, Iím exhausted, but satisfied with how this week went.

Morning practice today. Warmups then started the workout. We did farm run, goal pace was 7:10-7:20 then 30 second pickups with 90 seconds at the goal pace in between. I liked the pickups because it made it go by faster. I was dead at the end though, tough week. I got out 3.5 miles before coach stopped me and told me to turn around (I fell off the pack around 3 miles), then he came back around and picked Kamryn and I up (she had class and I would have been over mileage if I had gone all the way back). We went faster than goal pace, my mile splits were 7:11, 6:28, 6:50, 7:18, 7:44 (including 1.5 cool down). Finished to 5 on the track. On a normal week I think I would’ve tried bumping it up to 6 by now, but for now Iíve got to listen to my body.
