Presidential scholar majoring in mechanical engineering/minoring in chemistry at the University of Alabama. I plan on going to medical school for neurosurgery after graduating in the fall of 2019(3 semesters early!)

My favorite movie is Burn After Reading, my favorite show is House M.D., my favorite book is The Picture of Dorian Gray, my favorite candy is Swedish Fish, and my favorite song is "Save a Prayer" by Duran Duran. My vices are red-haired, blue-eyed girls, cheap beer, and the endorphins called runners high. I hope to make the world a better place.

Busy day, when I was finally free it was storming and I had a midterm the next morning, so no running

5 miles easy with a few strides after. I think I'll try to keep the pace pretty honest on tomorrow's long run if I'm feeling up to it

Drove 20 minutes out to Sandy Rd, and it was completely flooded. Drove back and ran a few miles on the fields, which were drenched as well. Decided to do a kilometer faster just to see what I could do when I'm not fit and running in bad conditions. Managed to get under 3:00, but it about killed me. I was on 2:4x pace for the first half or so and because of that the last 200m were a death march. Still happy with it, and surprised I didn't fall during it. Time to study for 6 hours

Noon - 2.5 miles warmup, 2.5 miles @5:59 pace w/ a 5:21 mile in there, 1 mile CD. That 5:21 hurt. I really drove to see what I could run and my arms are currently super sore from lactic acid and such. Nice run. Not gonna do another workout for a couple weeks, this was just me hitting a 6:38 mile pretty easily and then seeing what I could do.

3 miles easy later. First double in a long time.

Straight engineering classes from 8AM-7PM including a midterm in materials, save a break from 3:30-5 in which I drove Olivia home, came home, changed, ran 8 miles with the last one in 5:55, changed again, and came back for my statics review. Very productive day but very draining as well so I'm happy I could go sub 6 today, didn't start putting in sub-6 minute effort until halfway through the mile, so more like a half mile in 3:15 and a half mile in 2:40.

7 miles working down from 6:50’s to 6:10’s. debating whether i should even bother tracking pace until i’m up to 120 miles a week. i think it’s better in respect to staying healthy to not try to push a pace AND increase mileage, so i’ll probably stop doing that for the next 7 weeks.

Studied all day for my statics midterm, did a LOT better than I thought I would. Ran afterward and a quarter of a mile in it felt like I'd been shot in the back. I almost fell onto the cement but caught myself, and hunched over for a couple minutes, but the pain didn't go away that much. Did something dumb and kept running to see how it faired but surprisingly it faded. Def still hurts to move/breathe too deeply now that I'm typing this though. Maybe I tweaked my back. Maybe it's from running on the pavement yesterday when I normally do soft surfaces only.
