6 miles jogging. About 30s per mile faster than last time but felt the same effortwise, despite it being around 16 hours since I last ate. Calves are tender from yesterday.

Distance run with the ACA boys, followed by 4x200m. Mile CD. Extremely windy out. I felt pretty sluggish and heavy on the run. The 200's were on the pavement in my trainers. 30s rest max. 1 and 3 had tailwind, 2 and 4 headwind. 29, 30 for the first two. Third one I let Dante, who was hitting 37's, get a 7 second headstart. I beat him by about 3-4 seconds. I didn't hit my watch correctly but it felt quite a bit harder than the first one so at least 28. Last 50m of the 4th one the headwind killed me and I jogged it in. 32. Felt sick to my stomach on the 200's but otherwise I felt pretty good.

I'm finally back on a good sleeping schedule so it feels good to not have me "waking up" and me "being awake" separated by about 2 hours.

I had Nathan drive me to the nearby disc golf course for today's run. 3 miles to warm up the legs. I don't know if today was just a really good day for me or what, but I was hitting 5 minute pace on it and it felt like nothing. Turned on my watch for about 100m of it and it was close to 5 flat pace, but I'm sure I subconsciously picked up the pace. Changed shoes and did another mile around the course. Made a loop where I would run up a semi-steep grass hill for about 100m, then it would flatten out, and I would keep going until I hit .10-.11. Then I'd recover for about 30s to a nearby dirt trail with a very gradual decline for .15-.16, then recover again for around 30s downhill back to the start. Did four sets of that. On the uphills my times were 31, 31, 27, and 26. I lost two feet so technically the "downhill" portion times went 40, 35, 35, 35. For better reference the uphill paces went from 5:10-4:30 and the downhill paces went 4:20-3:55. After that grabbed my bag and ran on the asphalt trail for a mile until I got to a semi flat portion and did 2x1 minutes, the first one getting progressively faster, then about 90s recovery, then the second one trying to hold my pace I was going at the end of the first one. My paces were 4:39 and 4:19. CD for 10.

9 miles on the riverwalk in the clunky old pegs. It stormed all last night/this morning and there was a 20% chance when I went out for my run so I was prepared to ruin some trainers. Wasn't too bad though. After 3 I stopped and did some drills. Did some strides in the last few miles coming back. I like doing strides mid-run, it feels more natural. Going to stretch and do core in a sec, something I've been neglecting lately.

Ran to the dining hall, Calc, and after Calc to the track. Stretched for a bit and did some premeet. 400m w/ 1 min rest, 200m w/ 40 second rest, 200m. 71, 32, 28. I felt sick today, I was stuffed up the entire time and my stomach felt bad. Not too worried about tomorrow. It's only preseason, and I think I can beat my PR's pretty easily. 3k at 10, mile at 2, 800m at 4. Gonna run to chem tonight for a shakeout.

Light jogging on a busy day. I miss Garek's blogging. Too bad he DM'ed me a while back and said his blog is retired now
