5 miles later in the evening. I didn't really give my body sufficient time to digest my dinner so the last couple of miles were a little uncomfortable lol. My sister is in town for her baby shower so we went to Roy's Pizza. First time I'd been there and it was pretty good, but I wouldn't recommend it as pre-race food lol.

10 easy around noon. Both of the cars were being used so I couldn't run on trails today. I made a loop from my house out along the Virgin River Trail, which is still a trail I guess but it's paved so not that kind of trail. There was some 5k going on so there was a little bit of traffic between the trailhead up by Hill Rd and the trailhead by the Dixie Center where the finish line was. It was a little awkward running through all their stuff, haha. I felt pretty strong for the first 5 miles but then it started to get a little tougher. I guess it's probably because I don't really run more than 5 miles each day lol. Pretty light week this week. Next week I get into training mode!

Easy 5 in the morning, I felt suuuuuuuuuuper stiff. Probably a combination of Saturday's run and the colder weather. I loosened up after a couple miles so it was alright. 

In the afternoon I went up to the high school to run the chocolate milk mile with the team but wisely opted out when I discovered that it'd been changed to the root beer mile. I got some sweet footage though. I ran another 4 with Coach after their practice. I felt a lot better than I did in the morning.

I went out later for dinner with my family at Red Lobster to celebrate my birthday! 21 baby, woohoo!!! Cake and ice cream at my grandma's afterward. Good way to finish off a great day.

I woke up this morning with very little motivation to go running. Parents out of town (me being alone in the house) + high school team on their 2 week break (no running buddy) + cold temps and monotonous training + too many episodes of the Office the night before = perfect storm to prevent me from running. I conquered the obstacles in the morning and got out for an easy 4, but I was planning on getting out for another 5 or 6 later in the evening after work and didn't make it out for that run. I don't know, I was just kind of in a funk today. Moving forward!

I had way more motivation to run today but I still only made it out for an easy 4 later in the evening. I would've gone longer with more light but it was dark outside. Last Saturday I realized that I had adquired a decent amount of money from working these past few months and I splurged and bought some running gear. Today I tested out 1 of the new pairs of shoes, the adios 3, which I'll probably use more for speed work. They felt good, my calves were pretty tight at the beginning of my run though which caused a little bit of discomfort, but I finished the run off feeling great and got a good stretch in afterward.

Just an easy 4 this morning. I don't think I'll go out for more tonight. My lower calves and ankles are a little sore so I'll do some strength exercises and maybe core.

Motivation was pretty low on Saturday and I had some aches and pains in my ankles so I didn't run that day. I decided that one of the reasons that it was so hard for me to get motivated the last couple of weeks was not having anyone to run with, so I texted Brianna and she was down to run with me today! Just an easy 4 miles but I felt much better. I did weights in the morning: squats, biceps, and triceps. I went with my dad early before running which made the legs pretty tired for the run but I don't know when I would go if I didn't do it in the morning, and I don't want to run before weights because I'd have to run at like 5 in the morning!!! No afternoon run.

5 again this morning with Brianna. She's been awesome to run with me this week! It definitely makes running a lot more interesting. Really nice day today but it sure is chilly down there along the river!

I got out before lunch for an easy 6 through Little Valley. Brianna couldn't come today so my pace was a bit faster than I've been running for the past few days and I definitely felt it, haha. Pretty tired but it was a good run. Weather was perfect.

10 easy in the afternoon. Really nice day for a run! I did the same 10 mike loop that I did a couple weeks ago but I changed up the finish a little. I felt good through 3 miles then I started to get a little tight in my left hip/glute and calf. The overall pace was just a little slower than last time but I’ve kind of had an off couple of weeks and this was my first week back in the weight room. Moving forward!

Just 4 this morning before weights. Squats + biceps and triceps. I was going to do a little more but the back inside of my left knee was way tight and made my run in the morning a little uncomfortable. I stretched and rolled out later.
