I tried keeping a quicker pace on this run to see how a higher intensity affects my knee. Also I wanted to have a better workout with still lower mileage. The results were good, I averaged a 6:25 pace, and my knee didn't feel any worse. A couple moments where it felt kinda tight, but nothing to crazy

Busy day, didn't get a run in, but did go to the greatest Jazz game, perhaps just game in general, of my life with Mark. So much fun!!!

Great trail run today along the bonneville shoreline trail. It was so much fun, and it felt good to get my lungs burning on the uphills and that sort of stuff. Knee felt fine, mostly.  I just want to ease my way into higher mileage, instead of going to fast and risking injury

Went with J. Buenning to the Provo track to do a workout.

3x800, 4x400, 4x200. The track was covered in snow, so obviously times weren't that fast. Totally felt like Rocky though, and I had fun on the 400s, I gave Jake a head start then tried to catch him. Good workout, first time on the track since before the marathon. Still working back, obviously not in quite the same shape as I was then, but it's coming back. My biggest worry is if I'll be able to get the speed back with enough stamina in time for the half marathon in March, while also not overdoing things and reinjuring my knee. I'm doing my best, but I've decided to err on the side of caution. I'd rather not hit the exact time I want to and still be able to run and be active, than train super hard and get injured and not even be able to compete in the race. Plus, you know, I've got the MCAT and stuff to study for haha

Good 4 mile run today. I was actually pretty sore from that workout yesterday. Time was short, cause I was squeezing the running between classes an the TA meeting. Good run though, just feels good to be outside and enjoy life.

Great run this morning. Went on the Provo river trail with Sam for the first three miles, then he turned back, and I went out for a what I thought was a mile longer, my watch actually died, so I ended up going 1.2 miles further out. I reset the watch, I think it was just cold. Then I did a one mile at tempo pace (5:52) then just cruised back for the last 3 or so. It was a great run, just one of those that feels so good, and your soul feels rejuvinated after. 

I was also thinking about summer plans. I'm not sure 100% what I'm going to do, but one exciting option is that I got accepted to do a study abroad in Cambridge. I'll probably end up doing that, but we'll have to see. Lots of stressful things coming up, but lots of exciting good options as well

Felt like I was running away from life, or from something. One of those strange, almost angry runs. Life is good though, no worries, haha

So ran 4 miles with Sam, had a good discussion talking about muscle cramps and the things we think cause them but actually don't, and some guy named Wim Hoff who control his body temperature and does all sorts of weird stuff (summit Everest in only a pair of shorts) all through his breathing. Not sure how much stock I put in it or not, but it was a good converstation

Unfortunately, didn't have time to run today, mostly due to a biochem test. Probably good to rest my knee too.
