Had a smidge of right calf pain on my Saturday morning run, so I stopped a bit early, wanting to do a longer run after my shift. Glad I stopped there because my shift ended up being over 7 hours and all that time on my feet probably would have been bad for it if I had gone any longer, felt the calf for most of the shift but didn't get any worse. Had a cute nurse ask for my number at the end of the shift so def worth it @Connor. Jogged a bit today after med school studying, but then remembered how frustrated I was last time I hurt my calf because I kept starting again too early so I went inside and did some intense biking, hit 9 miles in 24:30, definetly the fastest I've ever biked. Did core and some lifting including some lighter calf raises, and jogged back to my car and didn't feel the calf at all. Should clarify that it wasn't the same place as last time, but since the only issues I've had this year have been my calves I'm gonna start doing calf lifts to make them stronger. Probably good to run right now but I'll take tomorrow off and do a long bike workout to supplement and rest the calf a bit more for good measure.

5 in the afternoon! I have no scientific proof to back it up but in short since all(2 or 3) of my problems that have made me take time off have been my right calf, I took a bit of time to think of why it was there; I've never had a calf problem before. You could chalk it up to a year and a half off, but I think it's because I've been doing shorter loops for basically all my runs, all counter-clockwise, which means a few 90 degree turns left every 500m for my normal running loop. I didn't have any problems when I was doing Sandy Rd every day, that's actually when my training was going best mileage-wise, however bugs have been really bad up there, they'd basically circle around me the entire run, and hit me in the face constantly which i guess you could say bugged me(the blogger known as kedric is laughin somewhere in Texas right now), so I decided to cave in and get bug spray after I did the 500m loop clockwise for once. Might not be the cause but I think it's a solid theory.

Also SO conflicted with the NBA finals, in 2016 I made some bet with Alli P that Golden State would win(and of course 3-1 means nothing to Lebron), and ever since then I've been a huge fan of them, and dynasties in sports in general. However before Utah I lived in San Antonio for 7 years, so I was a huge Spurs fan, including when Kawhi was on it and they beat Lebron in 2014. So either way I'll be happy in part but also sad regardless of who wins. Still pulling for the dubs a lil more, and Lowry a fool for missing that game-winner lol

3 in the morning, woke up at 5AM on my own accord, always worth recording because always a big suprise, especially when I've been waking up at 8 lately and didn't  fall asleep any earlier than usual. No calf problems.

5 after my cardiac shift. Ran a cool 4-flat lap at hilton after my shift last week, each lap is three quarters of a mile and I knew I could beat that today but decided to chill out.

3 in the morning. Was going to do 6 but I still plan on doubling today and figured taking this week cautious probably wouldn't be a bad thing.

5 in the afternoon on the track with 4x200m strides. Was really just hot for this run(I don't mean that in terms of heat. I was on one!). Lapped my watch every 400m in case I lost track of laps, mostly 90 and 91's, couple a bit faster and a bit slower but that was about the average. Felt like my stride was matching that but effort-wise it felt like an easy run. First 200m was a 29-low, but even though I was on today I didn't want to put in any more effort than just striding out, and I know 29's in trainers aren't just strides(at least at this moment in time). Timed the last 100m of my last stride and sped up a bit for it, that was a 14-low. I had a frozen cherry and cranberry juice smoothie after class, a couple of hours before the run, noting that in case I just discovered my secret superfood. Felt like I could have ran 6-flat pace forever this evening.

5 miles easy in the morning. Legs needed a little shaking out those first couple miles.

6 easy in the afternoon. Was going to do 5 on the track a bit faster + 4x200m strides again, but I have another 7 or so hour shift tomorrow and I'd like to do sprint Saturday after.

9 in the morning. Solid pace but slept in and didn't start until 10AM on an empty stomach, proud I powered through the heat/humidity with no second thoughts. Got less than an hour until my hospital shift and ideally I'd go straight to the sprint stuff after, it's only a couple of miles but I'm okay with listening to my body, today's a lot of stress on it. 

Felt good after my shift so did sprint saturday. 1.5 mile warmup with the last .5 doing speed changes in 2:41, then 4x150m w/ 250m recovery. Not really focusing on timing these, only timed #2, that was 19.3. Good to know after a 9 mile in the heat and a 7 hour hospital shift I still can (basically) run a 25-second 200m.
