It was my little sisters' birthdays today so we went to Lowes Extreme Air sports (trampoline park) and I went frickin ham so that's gotta count for something. I had a coke, a scoop of preworkout, and a GU shortly before going in and I felt like I was on str8 cocaine it was nuts. Try to beat my American Ninja warrior time if you're ever in provo. 58 seconds booiii. 

Anyways, afterwards I ran off my remaining energy in a easy 3 mile.

3 mile route up to the Provo temple, added a lap around it just for fun.

Ahhhhhh it was sooooo beautiful today. It felt so good. I love global warming.

Haven't quite figured out how to get a run in on mondays but its a work in progress.

Today I went for a Tuesday trail run up towards the Y. I turned back at 1.5 miles but the elevation gain was insane and I was feeling a bit like jelly. Felt good though! 8:14 avg pace.

Nice easy run with my roommates. They didn't do too bad actually. I felt really good. We ran out past the City Center temple. Went 8:55, 8:07, and 7:24.

Jaxon even agreed to keep running with me so we'll see how that goes.

Accidently sent 4 today with Jaxon. My legs are feeling a little sore but we just went nice and slow. Jaxon isn't even a runner but he's gone 3 days with me this week so I'm proud of him haha. Slowly but steadily getting back into it.

Avg pace was right around 8:35.

Went on a nice morning run with jaxon, ended up getting a nice view of Provo before the sunrise. Easy pace uphill, we gained about 300 ft in elevation, and then pushed it a little harder for the next 2 miles.

Also shout out to my main man King Cheserek for getting that American indoor record in the mile. You inspire me. Back to back killer races homie.

Nice flat run today. I felt like going a little faster so we pushed it pretty good on the last mile. Still nothing life-changing, and I'm still just slowly working on my foundation, but it was nice to go faster than we've been going. Jaxon came with me again and kept up remarkably well.

Miles were 8:55, 8:04, and 7:14

Jaxon needed to sleep in this morning so I went solo. it wasn't too bad though because I got to go fast haha. I went 3 miles without stopping as kind of a tempo run I guess but my pace was all over the place.

Miles were 7:35, 6:53, and 6:35.

It was a bit challenging, but it felt really good! It also felt really cold, and my toes hurt for some reason haha. Anyways, we'll be in arches tomorrow hiking, I might try to get one more run in but I'll have to see how it goes.

Got to run in the snow today! Played some basketball with the bros and then went for a quick 3 mile run. It was pretty cold and I felt like I was going really slow the whole time but it turns out that my pace was actually much faster than it has been the last few weeks. I was consistently around 7:30 and it averaged to a 7:33. 

I guess that's a good sign that I'm starting to get into slightly better shape. I'll try to keep all of my runs this week sub-8 I think.

Woke up a bit late and only had time for 2 today. Hopefully I can get 4 on Saturday or something to make up.

Easy 3 mile with jaxon. I actually felt warmed up by the time we hit 3 miles haha. My body was telling me to keep going. I guess that's a good sign, maybe I'll attempt a 5 miler on Saturday.

Went a little faster today, I was by myself. Felt really good! mildly challenging, but over all very doable. Just slowly getting faster line upon line and precept upon precept as they say.

Mile splits were 7:20, 7:02, 7:19, 7:16

Nice and slow, but a lot of hills today.

Shoulda gone in the morning before the snow hit, but I missed my chance and got to run in a blizzard with about 8 inches on the ground.

Guess I could have just hit the gym and ran there but death comes before treadmills in my life.

Almost died cause the whole thing was just running over snow and ice, but we made it. 

Longest run we've done so far! Not too bad, kept it nice and slow at a 8:24/mile pace.

Ran with Jaxon past the City Centre temple this morning. It felt really good, I was hyped after. I think I ran Jaxon kinda fast haha but he survived. We went 7:56, 7:24, and 6:51

I had a study session that I needed to make it to and all I kept thinking was that I needed to run fast if I was going to make it. So I ran fast. I felt pretty accomplished/exhausted after since it was the first time I've ran a sub-20 3 mile in a little while. 

Splits were 7:02, 6:24, and 6:09
