9 miles @ 6:38 pace. The first two miles were downhill, and the last two uphill. Everything inbetween was pretty flat. Hit the first mile in 5:26, 2 miles in 11:27, 3 in 17:37, and 4 at 23:52. After that I settled down the pace a bit, but man those first four miles came to haunt me in those last two uphill miles. I saw some of the team running a bit ahead around 5 miles in, but I opted not to take it easy with them as our paths crossed. "Gotta do what I gotta do" - Drake

I was planning on doing like 6 mile repeats on air village hill, three up and three down, but to quote Conner Mantz, it "went over about as well as a pregnant high jumper". Did the first mile(downhill) in 5:07, then 5:52(uphill), then 5:33, then 6:13. After that one ran back home. The wind during the run was awful, apparantly no one can fly out of Vernal because the planes might crash due to wind, but I don't think I was being mentally strong during the run. I think when I overthink runs I tend to fall short of what I'm hoping for, whereas when I don't think about the run I do pretty good. 

5 miles just under 32 minutes later on the treadmill. Paces were 6:40, 6:30, 6:20, 6:10, and 5:57. Lifted afterwards. Ran to my truck and back to add up to 10. "It is what it is" - Drake

10k tempo at McCoy. My watch was being weird with the last three miles but I'll allow it. Paces were apparently 5:42, 6:00, 6:01, 18:25 at 5k, then 6:35, 6:32, and 6:43, coming in the 10k at 38:30. Came in the last 400 under 80 so that wasn't too bad. Hills killed, so did my calves. Cooldown after to add to 8. Avg pace 6:14 for the run all together. Grind was feeling real today, but "It's far from over" - Drake

About a mile warm-up, then about a 650m run on the grass to get my legs warmed up, 39 degrees is chilly. 2000m in 6:35. Felt pretty easy, I relaxed a bit too much on the second and third lap. After that 1600 in 5:25. That one was hard to fight through, I wasn't feeling the hottest. Changed out of my sweats after that. Went to do 1000, clocked in a 70 first lap, and stopped and went to the indoor to continue the workout, despite wrestling and the cheerleaders being there as well. Went to do a 1000, but ended up doing an 800 instead. 2:21. Did another 800, but the wrestlers got on the track and I had to stop a couple times to squeeze by them as to not crash. That one was 2:31. 600 after that. I went super ham on that one and clocked in a 1:32. Felt good, until I started jogging after, where my calves said some non-family friendly things. 400m After that in 63, then a 200 in 29. Strides after. With the jogging in between I'd call it 8.

20 minute run on the treadmill, lifting and core after. Training alone lately has been hard, but I'm liking my improvements. "Everybody got a deal, I did it without one" - Drake

5 miles at 6:15 pace. Was going to do 8, but apparently my sock was wrinkled or something, because it felt like my foot was being dragged across a gravel road at 60 mph. Not fun. I stopped at five because I thought my foot was bleeding, then biked three miles at high resistance

10 miles @ 6:39 pace along West Jordan. Felt really just like crap during it. My legs were like lead as soon as I started moving, and at about 3 miles in my foot pain came back from yesterday. "Ever since I left the city" - Drake my legs haven't felt A1. Miles 3-7 were pretty hard to push through, but after that I felt a bit better and the pain subsided.
