somehow my phone alarm, watch alarm, and alarm clock all didn’t go off :( so no AM run. ran a mile during my very short lunch break!

7 mile W/U, 8x100m w/ a 400m hard in the middle for sprint sunday. 400m was 60.8, last 100m was 13.3. got out good the first 150m of the 400m but that last 150m i lost focus. with no workouts this is just the starting point, so i guess i can’t hold a grudge against myself for not breaking 60. CD for 9.

alarms didn’t go off again >:( !!! about to go buy a new LOUDER alarm clock. so i woke up around 5:40am and just chilled and ran 3 miles at 7am. ran on RV bc even though it’s tougher on my legs, i always run faster there and i wanted to get some feel-good miles before i jump back into high mileage again. 6:57 pace with some strides at the end. felt easy, i’m a long way from having legs strong enough to do that at my kind of mileage though. genuine question: is there any drawback to doing strides after every run?

PM : 15.5 miles, 3 at 8pm, 12.5 at 9pm. Wanted to go 15 and legs were up for it but stomach was seriously rebelling after a few miles, after I started running after the umpteenth bathroom stop and my stomach was already telling me it needed another pit stop I just stopped there. Also got wifi set up in the apartment, FINALLY. ik there's that whole conversation about being plugged into a virtual reality, etc, but I've never been huge into social media, but still was getting kind of depressed being at home without it, losing the ability to look up whatever I want whenever I want is like making my brain feel claustrophobic

3 in the morning, 5.5 at night. Been rethinking how I want to move forward in training and it's hard to maintain focus and objectivity without removing yourself from the mileage. I wanted to run a 200 mile week next week, and let's be real, I totally could, everyone knows it, but I don't think it'd reap much down the line, it's probably better I just get workouts started. I mean I did just run no less than 100 miles a week for the past quarter year(wow), I think I'm just at the point where the foundation's been built enough and any more of it would just be me pussyfooting workouts. So gonna try to do 150 a week for the near future, with workouts. Crazy how this feels like easing up the effort! Ran 6:59 pace for the 5.5 because I can baby

SOTD: Jesus Is The One(I Got Depression) - Kenny Beats & Zack Fox. The actual youtube freestyle video is the funniest thing I've ever seen. I'd never recommend it to anyone though because of how wildly innappropriate it is, that doritos line makes me laugh my ass off every time though

AM: 6 mile WU, 4xk with equal recovery, 7.5 CD for 18. Ran the first 5 miles of the warmup up to Oakmulgee and ran the k's there, then cooled down going a bit farther up the trail to explore, then back. I say warmup and cooldown, but it was basically an 18 mile run on sandy with some faster running in the middle. k course was about 700m light rolling hills, then a 100m uphill that isn't too big of a deal, you can keep your pace up it if you focus but it's a challenge, then 200m flat. Not a good course for working on running fast but a good course for working on running strong. k's went 3:32, 3:40, 3:21, 3:18. I was fine with running 3:32's after the first one, and maybe one day I'll be happy to see a 3:40 kilometer, but seeing it got my head back in the game(I kept thinking of that "I got depression" song in the middle of the repeats and laughing). It'd be fun to run a whole bunch of repeats on this course, especially mile repeats because the course gets even more uphill right after the k mark, and then after a few months when I enter the next stage of training run the repeats on the grass or track, I'm sure they'd feel so much easier after these. Overall good stuff as we used to say back in the day. The last half mile this dog was following me so I stopped to see if it was tryna get territorial, but it just wanted some love so I pet it. Started running and this son of a gun kept butting into me because he was so excited to be pet, so I spent the last half-mile of the run doing my two favorite things, running and petting dogs. Got in my car after and had it follow me back to the yard he came from. I wonder if he'll do the same tomorrow.

PM: 10 miles with 5x300m. 6 mile wu, legs felt good but stomach felt real bad, I think I went too heavy on the vegan protein powder in my shake I had earlier in the day. Really wanted to throw up but like all my favorite ex's I got no gag reflex :// 300m repeats went 48.2, 47.0, 46.1, 44.8, 44.2. 500m jogging recovery in between, like the recovery with the k's it was less recovering and more getting in mileage. Happy with today, real happy.

AM: 3. Before the run I was trying to do some mental gymnastics on how I could finish my engineering homework and run 15 miles before classes and realized I couldn't so I turned around after death hill, I guess I'll try for a longer run tonight, I was gonna do my long runs Monday morning, but doing it after my shift on friday would be way more time efficient so I can study more monday morning. 

PM: 3 again. Car battery died while I was working and no homies were nearby so I just ran home.
