Finally got out on my run around 2 in the afternoon, so once again it was hot. I was really happy I ran almost everyday this week, it really just makes a week so much better! And I finally found a running friend!

A nice run at night, feeling rested after a nice holiday. I went and tried to donate plasma today, i guess my veins aren't good enough, weird because I am pretty sure my veins are more visible than almost anyone I know! Also I am looking for a new running watch, any good recommendations would be appreciated!

Quick run after my night class, it was a guitar class! I think it will be super fun! The run was good, legs were pretty tired at the end as it is the farthest I have gone in a long time, but breathing felt pretty normal so thats good.

nice easy run with my friend, she is preparing for a half marathon next week, so she is super nervous. Nice to have someone to talk to during a run!

interestingly enough I am exactly a mile and a half from each temple, so today I just ran down to the city center temple, it was a good run, and I didn't have to wait for any lights, that was a plus! Stomach was a little uneasy but my legs felt great!

didn't get out until about 11 at night, so it was just me on the street basically. A homeless man ran with me for about a quarter mile that was interesting to say the least, he was nice.

It was the perfect running weather today! this run though I feel like nothing went right, it was a lot harder than it should have been, so that was kind of a drag, but I guess off days happen

AM-3.5 Finally starting to feel in shape a little bit, hopefully that helps me relax on my runs more. I stretched more than usual beforehand, and it really helped, because last run I just felt really tight the entire time. Slowly but surely this week I am going to start building my mileage.

PM-2 Just took a nice easy run a long way home after picking up melodie. It was a lot of down hill. But my legs felt great.

nice run in the morning. It took a lot of will power to actually get out of bed today, but once I got going I felt great. I am pretty sure more people water their sidewalks than the grass as i was running. Also my new watch came today, so I will go for a run later to play with that a little bit. 

7:05 Average

Pm- 2.5 Did a mile warm up and then decided to see how fast I could still do a mile, and wow it was hard, I haven't tried to go fast in a long time, I felt like I was working way too hard! I ended up running a 5:38 which for only running for about two weeks I was happy with. Also it gave me an excuse to play with my new watch!

I was at my brothers and decided I would just run home, I thought it would be about four miles, I was decently close, it was 5. So my longest run since starting up again. I felt great at mile three i got a little tired, but that only lasted about a half mile. I kept the pace pretty decent, my legs are gonig to be sore tomorrow! also my sisters called me and asked me if I wanted to run a half marathon with them in january!

Average pace: 7:20

Today I found some hills for a workout. I ended up doing 10x1 minute hills. I forgot how much hills make my legs ache. I was surprised I was feeling really tired on about 5 but then after that i got in a groove, the last one felt just as smooth as the first. I averaged about 6:10 up the hills. Then just cooled down to 5. I really need to work on my recovery pace, it was probably a little too slow.

Quick 4 miles in the morning. My hip felt a little funny for the first mile or two, but after that it was all good.

PM-3 This felt way hard, and then I looked at my watch and realized why, I was going way too fast. But still a nice stress reliver after work

Also I watched free to run last night, a documentary about how running went from an absurd thing that people do, to a sport that millions love today. It talked a lot about women breaking down the barrier of running in a marathon and the start of the new york marathon. It was a really interesting film!

it has been a crazy busy day but got out tonight for a nice 4 miles. I felt really smooth today, I threw in a couple fartleks also. It was pouring rain, it felt really nice other than the fact my hands went numb

Ran a 5k against myself, and wow I picked a hard route to run it. The entire first mile was uphill, so that really got my legs pumping, the second one was when my legs got tired from the hill but I just focused on the skyline and kinda zoned out, while still going pretty fast, last mile was a little sketchy because it was a horrible road and i thought I was going to break my ankles, but i did it all in 20:03. So not super fast but for the shape i am in right now I am pretty happy with that.

5- Found a nice mile loop and ran it a couple times, just trying to find a nice honest pace. good start to the week! knee hurt a little, so put some pain relief cream on it, it seemed to help a lot. And now I have to write a lot of papers for school, oh how fun.

Only managed to get in 3.5 today. I got home from night class and melodie had burritos ready for us, so after eating the burrito it was late, but I promised myself to run every day, so off i went with my burrito filled stomach. It was a rough first mile, but after that my stomach felt better.

It's been a busy week with school and work. Got out tonight out around 9, the weirdest thing happened today. As i was wearing my american flag shorts at a stoplight, some random kid kneeled down in front of me. This NFL thing is just weird. This has to be the weirdest thing to happen to me on a run.
