I felt pretty good throughout this run, even though it was a tough run with altitude. Had about 900 feet of elevation gain. It was a nice run.

Previous week

I had a pretty good workout on Thursday and the rest of my runs were also solid. This was the first week (not counting the first week) that I felt good about every single run. Let this be a sign of times to come. Weights is coming right along, and I can feel myself getting stronger. 

This week

It's the summer moritorium week. Coach cut the minutes for this week a bit, so this week ought to be a refresher. That'll be the main purpose of this week. Beast and feast should be fun since I've never done it before. We'll see how it goes.

AM over 1:24:29; 7:12 pace; 3x 1, 1, 2 min pickups 

I'd say it was a quality long run for me. The only tough spot was at about 35 minutes I got some throw up things, but those only lasted a few seconds and I caught back up with the boys. I handled the pickups well and went the full minutes. I'm starting to understand these long run things a little more every week.

Ran the roller coaster trail with Carson and ran from there to the farm for our 4th of July softball game. Our last few miles were really quick. I went 5 for 5 in the softball game. We won by like 12. Love America

My quadriceps felt sore for the second straight day, but I still had a pretty good workout considering. I think we all felt a bit dead. It's all good in the hood, though.

Went out with the boys to the Hurricane rim trail. I've had a history of struggling with this trail, so I went in committing to hitting it hard and not dropping out. I did so pretty well. We came back with a negative split and went on the canal trail for a bit. Alex and Julien actually went to whole way down on it, and they said it was sick. I bet we'll do that the next time we're out there. This run was good for getting a little more serious, contrasting a few of the runs during this recovery week. Excited to see the coaches again, but I'll only be to practice Monday and Tuesday because I'm going on a 50 miler with my ward. Oh well.

Previous week 

Had a good long run this week and practices fan smoother than expected without coaches. Didn't have weights at all, but I loaded some bales of straw on Wednesday, so that was good. It was a good leg rejuvenator. Rejuvenate her? I hardly know her. 

This week

I have no idea what I did to aggravate it, but my Achilles hurt all of a sudden about 8 o'clock on Saturday night, and it's still hurting. I'm gonna pray it'll heal up by the morning. It'll be a limited week for me due to me leaving for a 50 miler on Tuesday after practice. I'll have to make the most of it.

Long run in and out of Coral Canyon. I had to catch up with the group quite a few times, even though it wasn't a very quick run. Overall, decent run

AM over 1:24:46; 8:37 pace; Sandhill

Took our first official crack at the Sandhill today. I hope we continue to do this at least two or three more times this season; I want to get better at this for my team. Got up in 14:00 and down in 8:10 for a 22:10 total. I walked a few times going up. That is what killed me. This workout really exposed my greatest weakness in running and made me realize that if I don't work on it, it's gonna hurt the team. So, from here on out, all of my solo runs are gonna be dedicated to crushing uphills. There are a few by my house that I can use, but I'll probably use the Sandhill a bit. It's all gonna be worth when we're hoisting the trophy.

Usual grass Tuesday before kids club, but we cut our minutes by a bit. I struggled through the striders just a bit, but I'm glad I pushed the speed. In the afternoon, we did 20 on the morning route following weights. I flipped us at 10:12, and coach threatened to punch one of my kidneys if we got back early and to punch the other kidney if he passed me. I felt the pressure on the second half.

AM over 1:16:19; 7:11 pace

Woke up this morning and decided to wear my Asics that I haven't worn in a while. They actually felt really good on this run. This run felt like the first quick run we've had in a while, at least that I've been a part of. It felt like a good negative split. I felt really good the first half and had to really push through the second half. I think this was a successful run for me. 

I have to admit that I've dropped the ball as of late in the reporting runs department. Obviously the 50 miler could've had something to do with it, but even the last few days, I've felt a little less committed to it. This is one of those times as a runner that I have to recommit to my team and our goals by doing the little, personal things. I will do this.

AM over 1:00:13; 7:06 pace; pace workout

PM over 20:00; 7:31 pace 

Had a decently tough workout, at least for me, but I never considered slowing or dropping out; I knew I was gonna get through it efficiently. We had 1 set of 6x60 sec.(first 3 at tempo, next 3 at threshold); 2 sets of 5x30 sec. at CV; 1 set of 6x60 sec.(first 3 at threshold, next 3 at tempo.) The recoveries were equal following reps and about 2 minutes between sets. We didn't have an assigned speed for each pace, probably because we were supposed to get to know the speed just by feel. We struggled with this, either going a little faster or slower than we should've. I'm sure we'll get better though. I'd say it was a quality workout. Afternoon was another post-weights 20. Had a really good lifting session today. I'd say I really got after it. 

Weights- Squat 3x5 of 195; Bench 3x5 of 100; Thrust 3x5 of 115; Deadlift 3x5 of 155

Ran the marathon course in reverse from Vernon Worthen. I held my own really well today. The grass was a perfect temperature during the striders, making them more pleasant than usual. Overall, good day of running.

Went on a solo run on the Hurricane rim trail. I went a lot further than I ever had before. Turns out, I was missing the coolest part of the trail! I ran into my bro Mikey on the way back. I was supposed to wait for him, but I just didn't for some reason. My bad Mikey. But I'm glad I did this on my own. I really conquered this trail mentally. It was a good day to run.

AM over 1:00:00; who knows what pace

Really fun over nighter with my bros, but I did not perform in today's race. We weren't even really going fast anyway, but I personally just didn't finish it like I needed to. It's mental for sure. I've got to trust the training I'm going through and that it'll set me up for success. I've also got to get into a groove of embracing pain like I did the end of Cross last year and all through track. I love the pain.

It was a very wet, usual Tuesday run. It poured all through the night and kept going all through our run and epic game of ultimate. There were a lot of dope wipeouts, but Decker and Coach had the best one, where Decker just went down right in front of Coach and swept his legs out from under him. I hope I never forget that moment. The weather cleared up by the time we ran after weights. Overall, good, chill day of running.

AM over 59:40; 7:15 pace; randomized pace workout

PM over 30:05; 9:54 pace

Had our second pace workout, and I must say, it was quite a bit easier than the last one. It was a really fun format, though. It was 3 sets of 5 reps, but we drew cards to determine what the reps would be. The sets were as follows: CV, CV, T, Th, T; Th, CV, Th, T, Th; T, Th, Th, T, CV. The level 2's and 3's then had one more set of 3- Th, CV, CV. It was all equal recovery between reps and 1 min. between sets. It really wasn't too challenging, but it also just felt a lot smoother than the last one. Maybe I just got the hang of it a bit more. As for the afternoon run, I kept my promise of doing a hilly run. I went by my house up a super steep hill, and once I got up on top, the trail was also pretty up and down. At first I thought it would be a super dope trail, but all along the top there were these flying ant things that were super annoying. So I don't think I'll recommend this to my teammates. I didn't realize how steep the main hill was until I was going down and fell a few times. I never stopped running on the way up, so even though the pace was pretty slow, I consider this run to be a success. Good day to run

I felt really good about today's run, especially the second half. We headed into the desert and made our way onto the Dino Cliffs trail. We then made our way onto the end of Prospector(hardly know her) and over by Maverik. We had to kind of meander(hardly know her) to get in the full minutes, but we got it done. The post-weights run was crazy hot. Overall, really great day. 

Weights- Squat 3x5 of 115; Bench 3x5 of 105; Thrust 3x5 of 115; Deadlift 3x5 of 175

I'm feeling ready for the long run tomorrow. I just have a feeling it's gonna be my day to break through a barrier. I'm getting to bed really early, preparing to crush this run.

Today was a huge success. This was my longest training run ever, and I made it the whole 100 minutes. We kept a good pace for the whole run. I'm really happy with how I ran today, and I know this is gonna help the team.

I took up Coach's offer to take the lower minutes today if we were feeling beat from yesterday. Went out to the Strip and ran down a road and flipped. Alex pointed out a man standing on a plateau, but Carson thought it was a pile of rocks. The rest of us voted with Alex. Good day to run

Well I reached one of my personal goals by breaking 11 at the time trial. I really ran my race by not getting antsy and finishing tough. Came in 5th right behind Logan. I'm very pleased, but not content. We made it up to high altitude camp this afternoon and had a little afternoon run. Felt good.
