Seven miles today with Nathan. We did a few repeats. Idk about times because I didn't have a watch but Nathan said I was on track for 6:30-7:00. I think that's pretty good considering I'm coming off of injury. I wasn't trying to push very hard. The trail we were on was sort of hilly (small hills, not terrible but I hate any sort of hill) so I rode the downhills and maintained a good pace on the flat and uphill parts. There was some wind too but it wasn't so bad. So it was an overall solid day.

Everything was pretty sore so I did a very short shakeout. I went to the rec center in the evening and lifted for a while and swam after that. I really think that the lifting and swimming are going to help a lot.

I did five miles at a good pace (idk what it was but it wasn't slow or fast) and then went back home to grab Luke. He did the last two miles with me. He's getting better, he just needs to pace a little better. Overall, it was a solid seven. I did my daily core later.

Six miles at normal pace this morning. I felt pretty good for most of it. Reagan and I went cliff jumping later so I got a little cross training with the hiking and swimming. I did some daily core in the evening.

I started my new job today so I didn't get to run until the afternoon. I would have waited for it to be cooler but I didn't feel like it. I knew that if I put off my run, it just wouldn't happen. So I ran at 4:00 pm in 86 degree heat with limited cloud coverage. It was a stupid thing to do but I don't care. I'll do some core later.

I promise I ran Wednesday-Saturday last week. I just didn't log it in the blog. I've been really busy. (One doesn't become a world class Subway Sandwich Artist in a day.) I've also been keeping up my swimming and lifting. Anyways, I attempted to do a 70 minute run today. I can defiantly tell my endurance needs some work, but not as much as I thought. I think I'll get back into the 70 minute groove soon. The run felt really good until about 4.5 miles in when I needed to find a bathroom. That was rough but I finished. I'm going to try again on Friday probably.

After the usual mile warm up, I did what was supposed to be a 3.5 mile recovery run. However, the pace ended up being a bit faster. I didn't push myself hard though. I have the day off from Subway today so I'm happy about that. I also saw Kenny running laps in the walking park so S/O to him. #grind

Today was supposed to be a longer run, but my legs were tired so I cut the mileage down and increased the pace. I'm going to try a 70 minute tomorrow.

Today was an easy run down to the rec. I lifted for a while after, it felt good.

No running today, I instead took a rest day. I ended up going out of town which was nice. Before we left, I did some core and 200 turns on the jump rope. After we got back, I did another hour of core exercises and 100 more turns in the jump rope. Overall, it was a good day.

Easy shakeout before traveling today.

Today was supposed to be a long run, but it didn't workout. I got chafed bad and decided to call it good. I will for sure tomorrow though. The run felt really good. I averaged about 7:45. I surged a few times and hit about a low 6:30. I didn't hold it for a whole mile but I tried to for about a quarter mile each time. It was a solid run.

Haha, finally got a true long run in, and it was freaking fabulous. My legs hurt, but in the good way. I didn't have any of the mental blocks either. I didn't really ever tell myself to stop. I averaged an 8:03 pace so that was pretty cool too considering I haven't run 8 miles straight for almost 8 months. I saw Coach Henderson running when I was about four miles into my run. We passed and gave each other high fives. That's was cool. After the run, I went and lifted a the rec for a bit and then did a mile cooldown to add up to ten. I also did my daily core and jump ropes. It's been a good morning.

Tempo run with race pace surges. I felt good overall and there was no calf pain. I lifted after and then did my jump ropes. I'm skipping core today because I need to rest. I'm taking a rest day over the weekend but plan on my jump ropes and core still.

Today was an intended long run, but I was pretty sore. I only ended up doing six miles at about 7:45 pace. It felt pretty good though other than the soreness. I'm starting a life guard certification class so that will be good for cross training.

Haha, I am so tired. I didn't end up getting home until late last night because of my guard class and then I had to work. I got up and did another six. About half way through the run, I hurt my knee a little. I'm sorta clumsy and I was trying to get on a sidewalk to avoid a car but ended up falling. #grace 😅 So instead of a gain doing a long run I cut it shorter. I came home and iced it. I don't think I really hurt it, but I don't want to take any risks. Tomorrow will probably be more of a recovery day and then Thursday I'll for real do my long run. We start team practices tomorrow. I'm super excited to meet the new freshman and to see all of my teammates again. 

I'm having an easier time staying motivated. It's helped to just concentrate on myself and my training. My goal is to make state again, this time with my team. More importantly, I just want to get stronger and improve my time. That's the reason I started running two years ago. I just want to be healthy and the best version of myself.

So today was the first team practice. It was cool to see everyone again. The coaches had us do a 5-4-3-2-1 tempo workout. It hurt, not going to lie. Granted, that was my third hard day in a row. Tomorrow will definitely be easy. I've done a lot this week with running and my life guard training (which I am loving, I'm so excited to be certified). But overall, the workout was fun.

Today was an easy recovery run. I just needed to shake out the muscles, we are practicing some hard saves today in my lifeguard class so I need to prepare for that.

Today was a 70 minuter. Well, I guess not quite. I finished 8 miles in an hour and three minutes. That's a 7:58 average pace. I had time to do one more mile but I didn't feel like it. Plus I wasn't quite sure where to run to because I didn't want to back track. I am super happy with this workout. My course was not at all flat and that's the fastest I've ever run 8 miles. I didn't do a running cooldown, but i walked around and stretched  the run today was a lot easier mentally, which is weird when you are running alone  I guess I need to start planning 9 mile courses now.
