I ran alone today so I could get to work on time. Legs felt like crap and I couldn't really breath. HR never went under 160 even though I wasn't going very fast. I paused to lay in the grass halfway through, that was nice. Definitely not the best day.

The workout today didn't really work out. ;) it was 5x500m @ goal 800 pace. Aka painfest. We were supposed to record our 400 splits. 58, 65, then I finished on the bike because the cold air was not making my lungs happy. Not a very good day but that's alright. I'll keep fighting.

Recovery in immigration canyon. Excited for tomorrow, everyone is required to do a 4x400m and either the 800 or mile. I'm doing the mile so that should be fun.

Cross train day. 10 min warm-up, 30 min with hr around 133, 5 min cooldown. Super easy recovery. Getting excited for tomorrow and Saturday, we've got some hard workouts coming

Whistle hills today, Jamie said they would last anywhere from 10-30 seconds and we would do between 1 and 20 of them. Definitely braced myself for 20 and that helped a lot. Finally a workout I can be proud of, I was able to focus on the task at hand (because I didn't know when it was going to end lol) so I was able to have the right mindset. Definitely going to work more on that. We ended up doing 10 of them

What. A. Day. I went to the school at 7 to warm up on the bikes and do the workout on my own because I had to be at a 5k in Provo at 9. The workout was 20x400m. First 5 at 5k pace, second 5 at 2-mile pace, third 5 at mile pace, and last 5 at whatever you have left. Splits were 76,76,76,74,78,72,71,72,72,72,67,69,69,69,69,68,68,70,69,67. Very difficult on my own and the last couple sets weren't near as good as they were last year. I was dying. Anyway, I went to the 5k and just did it at a super easy pace as a cooldown. Halfway through I had to stop and walk because my left chest, shoulder, and arm was aching and going numb.

Update on Saturday: I had a heart attack during that 5k, that's why my heart was hurting and my arm went numb. I should've gone to the ER (doctor got mad about that today) but I just walked it off and went to work, where I felt like I got hit by a train the rest of the day. I'm getting some tests done and going to the hospital on Thursday to figure out what's going on. On the bright side, I now have an answer as to why I've been doing not so good lately. More to come on Thursday.

6 miles alone this morning, I'm starting to feel ever so slightly better. My lungs were the source of the problem, and I got that diagnosed and a treatment plan underway. Shoutout to doctors everywhere.

Speed today, and I actually am feeling much better than I have been so that's a win. The workout was 2x400m, 3x200, 4x100m, all at 800 pace. Splits were 59,59,28,31,30,14, then I lost my lunch and couldn't breathe so I pulled out. BUT everything I did my legs responded well to, unlike the last 23483945738476 workouts.

Warmup, then premeet. 2x200m at goal pace for tomorrow. 29 and 29 and starts. Windy and cold. I did 4.5 on the treadmill inside to protect my lungs as much as possible. Excited to throw down tomorrow!

Birthday shoutout to Gan and big shoutout to Michael and Austin for getting their mission calls! Michael to Paraguay and Austin to Spain!

Warmed up, then raced the 800. Usually I'm pretty conservative right off the line, but it was cramped so I figured I should get out as hard as possible. I still got elbowed and sucked into the pack, where we went out waayyy too slow. On the back stretch I saw an opening and moved out to lane 4 and surged to the front, and hauled for the next 200, even though my first lap was still only a 60-61. Chris then passed me and my legs/lungs/body started to catch up to me. I'm making some progress, but it's slow. I can honestly say I gave everything I had so I'm proud of it but I'm hungry for faster times. It's a long road back.

I did 3 before work with my dad, I haven't run with him in forever so that was kinda cool. After work I did 4 in AF. Felt stressed about things so I pushed a little harder than I probably should have.

Speed today! I did it during 4th so I could get to my sports massaage appointment on time... so that was kinda lame. Speed on your own is the worst. Anyway, the workout was 9 reps @ 800 pace. 300's until you misspace by at least 2 sec, the shift down to 200's until the same thing, and then shift to 100's. 1 min rest in between everything (ISH, it was hard to get to the 200 in that time lol). I did 3 300's and 6 200's. Splits were 48,47,50,34,33,33,33,32,31. We added 2 seconds for the wind, so I was going for 46's and 31's. The wind was crazy. Breathing got bad but I was able to finish this one strong-ish so that's definitely some more improvement.
