Wow, such a good run with Brycen Williams on the trail going out towards the Bloomington caves. Brycen is just a solid solid young man, and he's heading out on his mission in a couple of weeks, and I'm way pumped for him, he's going to do great stuff. He will be missed though

Lots of meeting up in Logan for Altra, a visit to the grandma, and a date, honestly just wasn't time to fit a run in. Good day though :)

Good, hot run in the afternoon. For some reason it was a bit more of a struggle than usual, and afterwards I had a bit of a stomach ache, so that may have had something to do with it, but it's been all good besides that little hiccup

NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!!! I celebrated by doing a nice 1.2.3.4.5.4.3.2.1 farlek workout, and then a nice evening run with my roomate Austin. I was happy with the workout, it was a good push, and I was able to keep the pace at least under 6 for every repeat. Good things are coming, just gotta keep working hard.

Nice run from the crib up provo canyon. I was pretty pleased with the 5 mile tempo run, I kept the pace pretty quick, averaging just under 6 min/mi. The last 3 miles back to the crib were pretty exhausting, I should have eaten one of my goos, but I didn't want to use one when I was so close to home already. I was a little sore that day, but my body feels like it's been recovering pretty quickly

Got up early to run with Joseph today, he's still coming back from injury, but we had a good 12x 1 min fartlek workout that was a really good push for him especially. I felt like I was cruising, not sure how fast though, because my watch decided not to work, might be time for a new one.

Got up early to get a good run in before work. Felt good, and I mostly was just fascinated how a large stretch of this run is downhill both ways. Must be magic

Tried out the King MT today, they're pretty great! Beautiful run along the Bonneville shoreline trail, a part of it that I've never ran before. Some great ups and downs, haha.

Pretty good run. Ran the first 4 with Jake Buenning, then 5 more on my own, followed by 3 mile repeats at 5:42, 5.43, then 5.46. I've still got a lot of work cut out for me, and I can't help but think it would be easier to do these workouts with someone else, I think I'd do better with someone to push me. Anyway, I then sat in the provo river for a few minutes, which was great. When I got home, I was almost ready to hop in the shower, but Joseph came by, and we went on a nice run together, with two barefoot miles in the grass. I also bit the bullet and ordered the Garmen 230 off ebay today.

Good workout today. Half mile warm up, then 4 miles, that averaged out to 5.51. I was pleased with the way things turned out, especially because there was a sublte uphill for a large portion of the run. It was pretty tough at the end, but I was able to focus mentally and finish strong, which I think was the biggest success of the workout. 

I saw Franco on the afternoon run, stopped and talked to him for a few minutes, super chill, awesome dude

1.25 mile warm up, then 5x1600 meter repeats. The splits were:

5.43

5.43

5.41

5.38

5.20

I was really happy with this workout, and the way that my body was able to respond and do well. I honestly felt like I got into a better rhythm and things got easier mentally as I got into it.

super hot run in vegas, not a ton of time, but it was still good to get out and keep things loose

Had a good run today. I tried out the One V3 as well, they seem like a pretty solid shoe. I want to start doing some yoga and other things to decrease the chances of injury.
