5.5 with Coach Powell and his wife and Lauren again in the morning. A little tight starting up but things loosened up after about a mile. Everything good but I really had to go to the bathroom at the end of my run, lol.

5.5 again in the morning, this time with Coach Powell and Carson. Had to go to the bathroom pretty bad at the end like yesterday, I blame it on the pizza I ate last night and the night before. Went over to watch the race at Pine View later in the evening. Good stuff from everyone today.

4 miles in the morning solo before work. Got a text from Matt later in the morning inviting me to go run with him and Hayden later. I didn't want to pass up the opportunity so I got about 8 more miles in with them out on the trails behind Tonaquint Intermediate. I struggled on the uphills because my fitness isn't so great right now but overall it was a good run. I talked to Hayden a little bit and got some great advice about the transition into collegiate running and I'm excited to keep training and getting ready.

Just an easy 4 on trails later in the evening because of the longer run yesterday. It was a good week of training and I'm excited for a much needed recovery day!

No run this morning. Went to go run with the team in the afternoon. They did the usual 1600m week-before-nike time trial. I guess it's called the Harambe mile now. I didn't understand the reference but I guess it's some gorilla or something like that, haha, that's what happens when you're out of the country for 2 years and don't have social media. Anyway, I just wanted to jump in with them for a little push and to see more or less where I'm at with my fitness and speed right now. I didn't want to take it out too fast and suffer later so I started off pretty relaxed and just went with it. I ended up going 4:48. Not too great but not bad either considering my training right now. Good little push.

Woke up this morning and was wayyyyyyy too tired so I smacked that snooze button like a red-headed stepchild. In the afternoon I ran 5 miles with the team and 3 more by myself after. I felt tired, but it was a pretty tough day at work yesterday and this morning so that was probably a big reason why I felt kinda drained. Overall it was a good run.

Pretty tired in the morning so I slept in before work. Just an easy 30 minutes later in the evening. I actually almost didn't make it out for a run. My shoulder angel and devil were having an intense battle. Shoulder angel won, #blessed. I felt good on my run even though it was an exhausting day at work. I've been trying to bring down the pace a little on my easy runs and it's been going well.

Late night so I slept in a loooooooooooooooooooootttttttttttttt. I got out around noon to run out by the Cove Wash trailhead. I started on Pecipice and worked my way through Sidewinder to Suicidal Tendencies. It was an awesome run. Perfect weather, some good climbing and fun descent, and some spectacular scenery! A little bit of core work later in the evening.

5.5 in the morning before work. Some normal Monday aches and pains but I felt good after getting into it. I got off work a little earlier today so I threw in another 6 with the guys on the ridge. Good stuff!

Slept in so I got out in the afternoon for my run before heading up north for Thanksgiving. It was weird because I was working all morning, then we went to Don Pedro's to eat lunch around noon and I at some good mexican food, so when I started running at about 1:30 I felt like I was going soooooo slow. I had all that food in my stomach and I was tired from work so I was thinking that I would go through the first mile at 8:30 pace or something like that, but I hit the first mile and it said 6:30. Haha, it's crazy because I do the same run pretty much every morning, and I always feel like I'm going super fast, but I've never come through that first mile in the morning faster than like 6:45ish. I think Don Pedro put something in my chimichanga. Good run, I felt pretty good and really didn't have any stomach problems until like the last 100m of my run.

6.5 mile loop around my grandma's neighborhood with Alex, my brother-in-law, up here in Sandy. It was a great to spend time with family and eat some good food. I'm thankful for all of the little things that make life so good. Happy thanksgiving everyone!

Good Saturday long run. Pretty much the same run as last week but we started from the road which added on a couple more miles. I had a great time running with an old thunder-cat-turned-thunder-bird. The blogosphere might know him as Ducote, but I know him as Sagebrush. A didgeri-dang good time with that pal. We’ll meet again on the battlefield one of these days. 

I went to Zion later with some other high school pals and now my legs are trashed! Tomorrow will be a solid recovery day.

5.5 in the morning with the xc team. I almost didn't go because I felt suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper tired which is weird because I got decent sleep last night. I got back and almost fell asleep while I was stretching, but I had work so I had to get up. Man, honestly I was so tired that I had like 0 motivation to do anything. Kind of a bummer. Right now my throat's a little sore so I think I might have a cold coming on. I'll do my best to fight it! It may just be a lighter week for me this week.

Pretty tired in the morning so I slept in and got my run in in the afternoon solo. I was a little tired from work but other than that I felt great.
