I Eat PAIN-cakes for Breakfast Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://ryliedutson.fastrunningblog.com/ Sun, 16 Jun 2019 09:05:02 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Tue, Jun 11, 2019 http://ryliedutson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-11-2019.html <p>So I&rsquo;m not very consistent, haha. But I&rsquo;ve been doing a solid 3-5 miles everyday. There&rsquo;s all kinds of pollen and other stuff in the air right now so it&rsquo;s been a bit hard to breathe. I plan on being back to full mileage soon. I think finding a race to train for too will be nice, it finally hit me that I&rsquo;m really not going to run with the XC team again. I&rsquo;ll miss running with Rachel and the boys team, they were a party.&nbsp;</p> <p>I&rsquo;ve started lifting with my little brother. He wants to put on muscle so he can be fast for swim season and for next track season. He thinks he&rsquo;s a sprinter (but really he needs&nbsp;to run the 800/1600).&nbsp;</p> Tue, 11 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Sun, Jun 02, 2019 http://ryliedutson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-02-2019.html <p>Three miles at a good pace. Idk exactly what it was but I just kinda went with it. I felt really good and could have gone farther, but I&rsquo;m trying to take it easy for right now. By next week I&rsquo;ll start going harder again. Right now the goal is just to have fun and enjoy the process.&nbsp;</p> Sun, 02 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 01, 2019 http://ryliedutson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-01-2019.html <p>Really short and easy today. I&rsquo;m surviving off of 4.5-5ish&nbsp;hours of sleep. I had to get up early to train for my part time job, jerky delivering. Sounds weird and unexciting, but it&rsquo;s easy and I get paid well.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 01 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Fri, May 31, 2019 http://ryliedutson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-31-2019.html <p>So it&rsquo;s been a long time. I&rsquo;m not very good at this but now that I&rsquo;m graduated I&rsquo;ll hopefully be better, haha. Anyways, track did not end how I wanted. I pulled my hamstring pretty bad during my mile and fell with 600 meters to go. I ended up developing a knot the size of my fist. It wasn&rsquo;t good. I stretched and heated and iced it, doing everything I could to get better for day two. It ended up feeling better, but three laps into my warm up for my two mile, it came back and hurt. I dropped out because there was no way I could last 8 laps at a fast pace. I did run my 800 though. I didn&rsquo;t hit a PR and my hamstring hurt a lot, but I was determined to finish at least one race before my high school career ended.&nbsp;</p> <p>I took two weeks off to heal. When I started running again last Saturday, I fell. Again. I ended up banging my knee and spraining my foot, so I took off a few more days. I did run Wednesday and Thursday with no problem. I did the elliptical today, but plan on running tomorrow. I definitely need to get back in the groove again. It shouldn&rsquo;t be too bad now that I can train for me instead of training to prepare for a racing season. It&rsquo;ll be nice to just enjoy the process.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 31 May 2019 06:00:00
