Decided to start the new year off with a nice trail run. Ran 2 miles straight uphill on ice. It felt like every two steps I ran I slipped back one. It was exhausting but fun. The worst part was coming back down, we basically walked back down, and I fell 3 times. Also I signed up for the Southern Utah Half today, so now I have something to look forward to.

Good run today late at night. It was pretty chilly! Also, we made up a good work out schedule for the next couple months. After the run we lifted weights.

Did a two mile warm up and then a two mile tempo and mile cool down. For only having been training daily for a week, the tempo went well, the miles were 6:30, 6:42. Not the most amazing things ever, but I am happy with where my fitness is at. Also, I will be in St. George on saturday if anyone wants to go for a run!

Made time at the end of the day for a run and some weights. I felt pretty tight the entire run, So I rolled and stretched afterwards. I am excited to go to St. George where it is actually warm!

ran the first part of the southern Utah half course today. It was nice, kind of a bummer to be alone though. I got competitive with myself and pushed the pace for some reason. Ended up with a 6:58 avg. for only running consistently for a bit over a week I was happy with how it went!

What a great day! After work today, I wanted to go for a run, but for some reason Melodie was very much against me going for a run. So we went to dinner instead. It turns out she was having a surprise party for me, and didn't want me to be all smelly. It was really fun, lots of people I hadn't seen in a long time came. After that I snuck out for a run around 10:30 which is when I usually go to sleep, so I was pretty tired. On a side note today I read Jared Ward's thesis on marathon pacing, it was actually a pretty interesting read!

Did a half mile warm up then did a workout of 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 1 minute all with equal recovery. It was pretty hard, a lot of that probably was because I was alone, but I was happy I made it through the workout.

Ran this morning, it was beautiful outside. What was not how beautiful was how I was feeling though, I had to put so much effort into barely moving at all. I just kept it nice and slow.

Ran up by Maverick and the dirt mile today. Did four miles and then matt joined me. It felt really nice outside, and my body felt good, no aches or pains. After my run, my sister convinced me to do 800 jumpropes with her, I never knew they were so exhausting!

This run was about survivng. I ate a whole lot of Olive Garden about an hour before my friend asked if I wanted to go running, and I still needed to go so I went. My stomach was not happy with me during that run. My left calf was a bit tight, but loosened up throughout the run.

8 solo miles today. 5 were at a quicker pace (6:42 avg). The first quick mile I felt like I was working way too hard, but after that everything felt pretty controlled. It was amazing weather today, I am loving this January weather. After I rolled out my legs while watching the hunger games in russian, so that was pretty fun.

Did some speed work today. Went to the track and did 10X400. Tried to run controlled. It has been a long time since I have tried to run anything faster than 6:30 so it was pretty hard. My splits were 81, 84, 82, 85, 82, 85, 83, 81, 81, 81. This was a pretty good workout for me. I am going to try to put a workout like this in at least once a week.

Upon waking up I found a whole lot of snow outside! It was pretty much impossible to run, but I had to get in my run so resorted to the treadmill. It was a long ten miles, but I got it done. This week was a good week of mileage, slowly building it up. Also after my run, I tried to get ice cream, and I couldn't get the car out of the parking garage because the hill going out of the parking garage. I was pretty sad because I really wanted some hot cocoa.

4 this morning on the treadmill at work. My right knee is feeling a little weird lately, I will stretch it a lot today, and see if that helps.

Did a 2 mile warm up, then a 2 mile tempo at about 6:30 pace, then a mile cool down. I didn't feel very smooth at all, I don't think I could have ran that pace for much longer today, I was pretty dead.

Right when I got home it started snowing, Turns out my shoes are pretty slick in the snow, I think I did more sliding than actual running This week sadly has been pretty low mileage, it was the opposite of what I wanted, I guess there is always next week.

Ran 4 with Nate when he got into town. It was fun to talk and catch up on life. I didn't feel too great throughout the run though, my knee felt better though.

What a fun run today! Trey and I went up the canyon, the first two miles were really slow because we had to trudge through snow. The rest were all about 7 or faster pace. My legs were pretty dead by the end, but it felt good. about 6 miles in we took a detour to help a man find his dog, we found it, but it kept running away, and wow it was a fast dog! that added about a mile to our run. Glad that I could end the week on a good note.

Went and ran hills, we did five repeats, all at about 6 min pace, and wow the legs were burning! After the run I iced my achilles, because it has been feeling a little tight.
