Good  5 mile run with Jaxon. Proud of that dude, kept with me for everything but the last mile. We kept a steady 7:55 for the first four, but I felt really good and wanted to go fast on the last one. Also I took a scoop of preworkout before hand so that might be part of it.

Last mile was 5:43. Not bad for being fat. Honestly, I'm probably in good enough shape for sub 5:20 if I was fresh. I came in pretty quick though so I did a mile cool down after for good measure.

Easy warm up around 7:40. Then I decided to see how fast I could run a 5k haha so I picked it up a bit. 5k in 19:48. If I ran that during senior year of high school I might have cried myself to sleep for the next month. But I'm outta shape so it was a good mark of where I'm at.

Decided I needed to step up my  game in the distance category. Jaxon didn't join me haha. My route was fairly hilly, but I managed to stay pretty steady on the pace so that was good. Nothing too fast haha, I averaged about a 7:47.

Felt good! That's the farthest I've ran since June. I may have accidentally signed up to race the St George Marathon yesterday so I need to stop messing around I guess.

Kind of a messy run this morning with Jaxon. Every dang road in provo is under construction so we made a lot of detours. Somehow we ended up hitting the mileage though and I was glad to finally wake up on time to get a morning run in.

Went a little faster today than yesterday, I still wasn't trying to push it though, just settling into a good cruise pace by the last mile. Splits were 7:56, 7:17, 7:30, 6:54.

I ate a ton of food right before running today so I went way slow haha. It was a beautiful run! I was super pumped to be running with all of the long grass and flowers and blossoms out until I almost went into a pollen induced anaphylactic shock. Grabbed some allergy stuff when I got back though, and after a brief coma, I was good to go.

All in all it was a good run.

Long run today. Well, relatively long that is. Kept my pace right around 7:30 for the whole thing so that was great. I actually felt genuinely fantastic when I finished. Also maybe a bit sunburned, but that's also a win.

Tempo run today!!

I warmed up a mile and then the plan was to hold a 6:30 for 3 and then cool down after to finish up 5. I ended up going 6:30, 6:22, and 6:21 so that was awesome. I felt way stronger (maybe just mentally) after my long run on Saturday, so 5 seems pretty easy now. It still felt really fast and I was way tired afterwards but it is definitely a sign of improvement to be able to average a 6:24 by myself on a training run.

Spaced out and missed the turnaround point by a bit (hence the extra .12), just got in some miles today. Average was exactly 8:00/mile on the dot, which is what I was going for. Just an easy recovery from yesterday before I hit some hills tomorrow.
