Nice run out towards the carterville loop. The dirt trail portion was pretty muddy and icy, so that kept things interesting. Highlight of the day: Delicious 7 course meal put on by Kelsey's stake! What a treat!

Nice 6 mile loop with Joseph, always good to run with him. The weather was warm so I was wearing a tank top with a light running jacket over the top of it. After 6 miles with Joseph, I took off the jacket to do the last 4 in just the tank top. Of course, as soon as I did that, a cold rain started to come down. Fortunately it only lasted for about 10 minutes, and I didn't freeze to death. I also love how the sample pair of the Duo feels, so nice on a long run.

Found a fun little loop today. Nice hills, good up and down run.

Struggled through a tempo run today. Motivation was not high, but it picked up as I got running. The tempo run itself was ok, the time for 3 miles was about 18:20 or something like that. That wasn't my goal time, but I wasn't mad about it. I was glad I at least got out there and did it, and there were definitely some hills involved, as well as a headwind for the last half of it. Call it excuses, I'm just going to call it the conditions, and adjust my expectations accordingly haha

Wow! It was so cold today! Ran the campus loop with Sam, and then tacked on an extra mile. Sam and I had a good converstation about the book King Leopold's Ghost, and also on the importance of history. Later that night we had a little presentation that we were going to give to a little club thing, but only 3 people came (cousin Jake and Boochy were too of them haha). So my dream of inspiring people to read a good book and learn from it didn't come true. Maybe I should start a book club, or join one or something. It was a good converstation though, and I just gotta say, I'm glad I like to read. I think it's important to do and critical to be as informed as we possibly can about the world we live in, and history is a big part of that.

So not a lot of mileage today, but it was cool mileage!! I was part of a study testing the efficiency of 6 different shoes that had varying stiffness to them. I got to wear a mask that measured my oxygen consumption, and was running on a treadmill that had force plates in it and stuff. I kinda felt like the Drago from Rocky 4, so that was cool. This week I just ran at 9 minute pace, but I'll do it again next week and run at 6 minute pace.

Part 2 of the study that I am participating in. This time was a tougher workout than the last, they had me run 6x5min repeats at 6min/mile pace. I had two minutes rest between repeats, to switch shoes and whipe the sweat off my forehead. It was a ton of fun, I felt like Drago from Rocky 4, except for a tiny bit less buff, just a tiny bit though. 

Couple of things I found from the study: Shoes with a stiffer carbon fiber plate are metabolically more effecient for me. I also found that my VO2 was about 54 or something around there when running at 6 min pace. That doesn't tell me much about my VO2 max, but just cool to know I guess.

It was hard to get out and run today. Even though I wasn't doing a tempo run or anything like that, I just wanted to go fast anyway. I think I will do that more, because I don't have a ton of time to run, so this is probably the best way to get somewhat decent workouts and mileage in.

I did 4x800m repeats today. I really liked the spot where I did them (around the temple) because it was uphil for the first half of the repeat and downhill for the second. It was really good hill training.

Let my cousin Jake try out the Instinct 4.5, he really liked them. Very busy day, fortunate to get a run in.

Good tempo run today. Averaged 6:05 pace with the tempo run being net uphill, so that was good. I had the classic tempo run stomach sensation, and was working through that. I need to figure that out, because that usually seems to be the limiting factor for me. Maybe I'll get some insight in my Exercise Physiology class.

Quick campus loop run. I played hard in pickleball this morning, I'm playing again this afternoon, and I've got a lot of studying to do for biochem.
