This was the longest run I've done in about 8 months so that felt great. It was cool to just get outside of the usual bubble that I've ran in so far and see some new things. You can't see a lot only going three miles a day haha. 

Kept it nice and easy, never pushed the pace. I feel like I ran far, but it was a good feeling. My splits were 8:12, 7:59, 7:43, 8:00, 7:54, and 7:44.

Easy 4 with Jaxon this morning.

Shout out to Roger Bannister for being a fantastic example of what it means to push the limits of the human spirit. Sad to hear of his passing, but thankful for the legacy that he left behind.

Kept a pretty steady pace for this one, I was doing Finance all afternoon so I just got one in around 6. Shout out to the Jazz for their win tonight and to BYU for a valiant effort in the WCC tournament. 

Splits were 7:51, 7:43, 7:37, and 7:25

4 miles in the morning with Jaxon. I think that I am quickly getting in much better shape than he is. Initially we were about the same because it had been so long since I'd run, but he's never ran before so I think I'm getting back in the game a little quicker. I wanted to go a lot faster today but he was pretty winded.

To be fair, I'm just super impressed that he's stuck with it so we'll. He's killing it. Honestly I probably need someone who forces me to take it easy right now so I don't hurt myself haha.

Avg pace was 8:14

Ran up to the y parking lot in the afternoon. Felt super nice outside, I even popped the shirt off for a bit. Turns out we got like a 650 ft elevation gain over the course of about a mile and a half. That was pretty gnarly. Pace was about 8:40, which was really not too bad all thins considered.

Accidentally ran on a race course this morning and everyone thought we were that last runners in... awk. Still good though, I wanted to keep going there at the end, it was like I had finally warmed up on the last mile. 

Splits were 8:10, 8:10, 8:05, 7:43, and 7:05

Went running last night by myself, even got to pop the ole shirt off for a while so #blessed. It's warm and I'm so pumped.

My legs felt really strong today after the weekend. I took a nice slow warm up but I just had to go fast after that. I felt great! I think I'm definitely improving and will hopefully be back in decent shape soon.

Splits were 8:14, 7:09, 6:43, 5:55.

1.5 mile warm up

5x400 meter uphill sprints @5:55 pace (continuous loop with downhill recovery)

1.5 mile cool down

Good run! I felt like I really pushed myself, I want to start having some hills at least once a week so that I can put on some good leg strength and get faster. They'll probably get more strenuous eventually. I probably ate too many krispy kremes today haha but other than that things went well.
