Really nice to have someone to run with, it makes it feel a lot easier. The last mile was all uphill and matt decided he wanted to finish hard, because our last mile was about a 6:40 uphill.</p> <p>PM-3 miles around the mountain.</p> Sat, 21 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 20, 2017 <p>Long day of work and then driving down to st george. I got out for a run pretty late, but it felt nice after sitting in the car.</p> Fri, 20 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 19, 2017 <p>Had kind of a frustrating night due to midterms, so I went on a run to help clear my head. Did about 6 fartleks throughout the run. My right knee still feels a little funny, it dosen&#39;t hurt, just feels funny. Also I&nbsp;will be in St. george this weekend, if anyone wants to go on a run!</p> Thu, 19 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 18, 2017 <p>This week has been really stressful, running is the only time I have to clear my head. my right felt super tight most of the run tonight, Stretched it out a lot after the run. Congrats to the PVXC teams on doing so well at state, y&#39;all are amazing!</p> Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 17, 2017 <p>No run today, as i was stuck at the airport all day.&nbsp;I guess i could have ran up and down those flat escalator things, but probably would have got some weird looks. I finished born to run on the plane though, I really enjoyed it the second time through. My plane landed at 1 in the morning so my body is pretty tired.</p> Tue, 17 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 16, 2017 <p>after a long day of flying to Baltimore i ran to give my legs a nice shakeout after sitting for so long. Hopefully I can get a run in tomorrow, I might be in meetings all day.</p> Mon, 16 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Oct 14, 2017 <p>Ran a 6 mile tempo today, 2 of the miles down the canyon. It was a nice confidence booster for the half marathon in a couple weeks. I did the six miles 6 miles with a 6:58 average. My legs felt so smooth today. It didn&#39;t feel too labored, I just felt like I was in a groove. Then just a warm up and cool down. What a great day, Also BYU today at pre nationals did amazing, wow!&nbsp;</p> Sat, 14 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 13, 2017 <p>Quick run after work.</p> Fri, 13 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 12, 2017 <p>Nice run tonight, legs felt pretty good. I plan on going on a longer run this weekend.</p> Thu, 12 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 11, 2017 <p>Ran on the treadmill tonight while listening to once a runner. It was some nice motivation to listen as I ran, but wow it felt like I was running forever. At the beginning I felt like I was going to trip on the treadmill or something, but figured it out in the end. After that I biked a mile or two to cool down, then lifted weights.</p> Wed, 11 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 10, 2017 <p>Good run after class again. Took a new route, and found myself on some creepy path, but I lived to tell the tale. I also found a treadmill in my complex, so that way I don&#39;t have to run outside on those reallly cold winter days.</p> Tue, 10 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 09, 2017 <p>It was a nice day outside, ran after work. Decided to run two of the miles a little quicker, those miles were 6:30 and 6:21, it felt super easy so thats a good sign! My legs felt great today, my hip didn&#39;t bother me at all.</p> Mon, 09 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 06, 2017 <p>I tweaked my hip today at work, tried to run a bit, but it hurt pretty bad and don&#39;t want to get injured. I iced it, and I am hoping that i can run tomorrow.</p> Fri, 06 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 05, 2017 <p>Low mileage so far this week, probably just from me being lazy. The run was good though, I had lots on my mind and it was good to clear my head.</p> Thu, 05 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 04, 2017 <p>Today was the smoothest I have felt, I was running fast, without working insanely hard. Seems like things are slowly coming together. Awhile ago I signed up for the Snow canyon half which is about a month out, I did it mainly to give myself a goal to work towards, Come race day I will have only been running for about two months, so could be scary, but it has given me motivation to run everyday, I just need to start getting longer runs in.</p> Wed, 04 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 02, 2017 <p>randomly ran into my friend while I was running so it was nice to have someone to run with. The last mile of the run was a pretty steady uphill, so I gave the hill a pretty good push. I need to wake up earlier in order to get more miles in.</p> Mon, 02 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 30, 2017 <p>Ran with matt, so that was fun to catch up with eachother. A nice run inbetween conference sessions.</p> Sat, 30 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 29, 2017 <p>A quick 4 at night after getting down to st george. I love that I don&#39;t have to stop every couple hundred feet for stoplights down here.</p> Fri, 29 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 28, 2017 <p>Longest run I have done yet, it was slow but good. Now off to st george tomorrow to see my&nbsp;parents, glad to be going somewhere warm.</p> Thu, 28 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 27, 2017 <p>It&#39;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.</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 26, 2017 <p>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.</p> Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 25, 2017 <p>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.</p> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 23, 2017 <p>4.5- Wow it was cold outside, it just switched from summer to winter I feel like. The run was good helped clear my mind, had a really busy day with a funeral.</p> Sat, 23 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 22, 2017 <p>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.</p> Fri, 22 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 21, 2017 <p>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</p> Thu, 21 Sep 2017 06:00:00
