Fresh New kicks. Wanted to go 10 but it was 10:00 at night and I ran past one too many sketchy warehouses with flickering lightbulbs and decided to just run back home as fast as I could. Adrenaline feels great though, averaged around 7:30/mile.

Roughly 7:40 average pace. It was hot. Sidenote I actually have no idea what my average pace was... that was just my warm up pace and then my watch stopped working. Happens every day. I guess that's what I get for rocking the frickin forerunner 10. Thing was literally carved out of mammoth tusk with a stone knife. I'm practically living in a third world country here. I mean, even kids from rural ethiopia probably at least have the 15. fetch. Maybe I'll have to mug some Timpview High School JV kid and take his watch. Stay tuned.

Super slow. tryna hit 8 again tomorrow so I needed a bit of recovery. I even did one plank at the end. That's one more plank than I did yesterday. Dope. Average pace 8:16/mile.

I feel like I just carried the one ring to mordor, collected and destroyed all 7 horcruxes, and beat alex honnold up the face of El Capitan. Holy Frick. My legs are seriously fatigued. I plan on hitting 42 miles this week, which isn't a ton, but it's more than I've ran in a week since high school. Probably a dumb move but yolo right.

Suuuper slow. I would've lost to my grandma on speed. She could probably amputate one of her legs and I'd still lose. Let's just say I had a lot of time to think. Nonetheless, I did it.

St george in 30 days. ya know, I may have only started running again and training the last 2 weeks but if I've learned anything from Nike the last few days it's to not ask if your dreams are crazy, ask if they're crazy enough.

7 miler. much faster than yesterday (not too much of an accomplishment), but it ended up being around 7:46 average. Turns out ice makes your legs less sore. How's that for a fun fact?

16 miles in 2:15. not breaking any records but that's actually the longest I've ever run in my entire life. Honestly it was pretty easy. I'll try to get a twenty in next week, but I think I might actually be able to run st George in 2 weeks.

I also found out that I need to try and grow a beard for this year's Savior of the World performance... Honestly might be harder than the marathon.

Ran up to the "Y" parking lot and then along the side of the mountain until the trail abruptly ended and I had to scramble down to the bottom. Maybe I wasn't actually on a trail at the end... whatever. It felt fantastic though! Air is clearing up; sun was setting; all of provo, springville, and orem was beneath me; good stuff. If I were a psychiatrist, I would most certainly prescribe a trail run to all of my clients.

Slow pace: 8:30ish but I had 781 feet in elevation gain so that isn't so bad after all. I feel like I need a bit more speed in my life so I did a 400m stride at the end in 1:21. Nothing crazy, just trying to get back in the "sprint to the finish" mentality.

easy recovery pace. Did a bit of Fartlek-ish on the last mile and a half. Just threw in 5 or 6 30-second sprints to open up a bit and keep things moving. Depending on how I feel I think I'm gonna try to get in another long run tomorrow.

Also I went climbing with my man Hank and I looked like a total weenie. Turns out I have literally zero arm strength these days. Time to start doing some pull ups or something holy frick.
