A little over a marathon on the bike at high resistance. I've read that three miles on a bike is about the equivalent of running one mile, so I'll count that. I ran a little bit from the rec center to the dorm. I haven't taken any ibuprofen today and I barely felt any ankle pain during before, and a pretty minimal amount after. Rolled out and I feel no pain. Rec center is closed tomorrow so I'll try to run tomorrow.

AM - 8 miles with Ethan in the morning on the fields. No ankle pain! Even after the run! I got back from my run, and had to take a 110 minute Calc test online. However, it wasn't made availabe to me due to miscommunication for over an hour! So, I had to take the test in about 15 minutes. Got a 98% which was sweet.

PM - Ran to the rec center, biked a little over 15k in the 30 minutes the stationary will let you bike, stretched, did core, did drills, headed back.

1113 miles from memorial day to labor day.

AM - slept in so didn't get the run in until about noon, after classes. I hadn't eaten anything since my early dinner last night, so 18 hours w/o food. Felt pretty lame at first. W/U to the fields. Did 5 .1 mile strides with equal recovery. Times went 27.2, 25.1, 27.1, 27.3, and 26.9. I mainly did these just to test out my track spikes on grass. Felt pretty good. Now I can go eat. After I run to the dining hall, of course.

My watch has been acting weird whenever I run from the dorms to the fields. It goes from 7:15 pace to 8:40 pace in a matter of seconds, and vice versa. I started where I ended the run, yet it says I gained 6 feet, and lost 41 feet. My moving avg pace was 7:18, yet the normal avg. pace was 7:28

PM - ran to the rec, did strength, ran back. Had 5 glasses of tea during that and felt sick

Hard workout today. 2.5 W/U with some short drills, 2000m, 1600m, 1200m, 800m, 8x100m. 5 minute active recovery between everything but the 100's, 1 minute rest between those. Grass was really wet and overgrown, also quite hilly. I ran where the Crimson Classic is held. I think the trees interfered with my watch signal quite a bit, but luckily that won't matter at races! Overall just didn't feel 100% today, but I made  Ran sockless in spikes. On the 2000 I had to step on concrete a few times, and at one point I was running on a sharp downhill turn, and at the end bottom there was nowhere to go, so I had to stop and turn around, so some time was added on to that one. 

Anyway, 2000, 1600, 1200, and 800 went 6:38, 5:22, 3:53, and 2:30. After every repeat my feet felt a bit more torn up. After the 800 I decided to run barefoot, as I took my spikes off I saw that my feet had some pretty bad blisters. Anyway did the 100's barefoot, ranged between 16-18. Grass where I was doing these strides wasn't as soft as I hoped, So after the strides and barefoot 2 mile cooldown, my feet were pretty thrashed. Good workout. It wasn't killer in theory, but the hills and grass definitely added some difficulty.
