AM- 5.02 out toward the river trail and back. Just trying to wake the legs up, also I don't want to do a 10 mile cool down later lol.

PM- Workout on the track at DH. 12x400 between mile and 3k pace w/90 sec active recovery (68, 69, 67, 67, 66, 67, 66, 66, 64, 64, 65, 63). Felt pretty good and the pace wasn't too challenging. Did a few miles cool down with Coach Fielding catching up on everything. Congrats to the DH girls for signing their NLIs today! Welcome to the team Lily and Trin!

Went up by Hidden Valley then looped around the river trail and headed back through BH north. Felt pretty tired from the workout yesterday, and my left quad is really tight now so I'll have to get that loosened up. Tomorrow will just be an easy day then I have the Gobbler on Thursday!

Happy Thanksgiving! 

AM- I arrived at the race feeling quite fatigued from the workout on Monday, then weights and basketball on Wednesday (most certainly a poor decision the day before a race). Nevertheless, I did a couple miles warm up and started to loosen up. Unfortunately I had to wait in line for the bathroom for what seemed like an eternity (probably like 15 minutes) and sort of tightened up a little. I got out of the bathroom right as the 10k was starting, so I had 5 minutes before they started the 5k. Basically I had enough time to strip down into my traditional robes of combat and get to the line. I quickly made note of the competion near the starting line: one collegiate athlete, a few high schoolers, some middle-aged men, and a handful of  overly-ambitious prepubescent children. The countdown reached its end and we all shot out from behind the line. After about 100 meters, it seemed as though my competition had narrowed down to one high schooler from Lone Peak. We quickly ran into the back of the 10k pack (I'm not sure who decided 5 minutes would be enough time to separate the 2 races), and had to weave our way through them. The pace felt a little too comfortable, and sure enough, we came through the first mile in 5:27. I picked it up and tried to press the pace and he didn't go with me. When we hit the turn-around and hopped onto the river trail heading back to the finish, I saw that I had about a 20 meter lead on the next guys, so I just kept pressing. With about a half mile left I assumed that I had a pretty sizeable lead, but I passed some people who then started cheering for the guy in second not long after I'd passed them, so I tried to pick it up a little more. My lead was big enough and I was able to get the dub. I cooled down a mile with Drew, Preston, and Laynee, then ran another 3ish miles to my house. 

PM- In what I now recognize as a very poor decision, I got in some more miles after going to town on a tasty Thanksgiving meal. Fortunately I was able to keep it all in.

Easy mileage. Played some more basketball last night and I really felt it on the run today. Didn't feel like I really warmed up until I was about 6 miles into the run, haha.

Back in Orem. Got in a longer run luckily when the weather had chilled out a little bit and stopped snowing. I even got to soak in a little sunshine for probably the 15 minutes of the day that the sun was out.
