We went up Roosevelt today, kept it pretty chill. Legs are tired, but I'm gonna get good sleep tonight. Fat workout tomorrow.

Weights and normatec boots after.

Workout today was mile, 4 mile tempo, 1k, 600, 400. Splits were 5:15 for the mile, 5:40, 6:12, 5:47, 5:41 for the tempo, 3:22 for the 1k, 1:50 for the 600, and 66 for the 400. Everything except the tempo was on a 400m grass loop with a really tight turn and fairly long grass. Really good stuff today. The tempo was a little rough, especially the second mile. But I regrouped and got after it. I was with the group for the last 3 things and not far off on the rest. I'm catching up and it's a beautiful thing.

P.S. rest was 90sec after everything except 2 minutes after the tempo.

Another workout today, 2x20min at steady state. I averaged 5:54 on the first one and 5:57 on the second one. It's all effort based, and steady state is a step easier than lactate threshold. So I felt pretty good about today. Legs are dead tired though.

Did weights, used the normatec boots, and got some graston done on my calf because it's acting up a bit. Nothing to worry about though, just maintenance.

We stopped on the way to suu and ran on the pipeline trail in slc so that was fun. The leaves are gorgeous right now.

Well... That race was interesting. My legs were toast from the gun. And the course was kinda rough because it's a 2k loop and half of the loop is uphill. So it was quite the grind, a tough end to a tough week.

Cooled down 8 miles with a some pickups mixed in. Lol that sucked.

Shout-out to Sami because it was way nice to see her again!

6 easy miles today, Nate is decreasing my mileage by 15% because this weekend is more than likely my last race of the season. So now I'm on 40/47 rotation instead of 47/55. It's weird being that low.

Weights after

Workout today, 4x2k then 1k. 2 min rest. Splits were 6:26, 6:50, 6:57, 6:48, 3:05. This was a long one... My legs were pretty tired from the beginning, and 2k's are very long reps. I stayed in it mentally though, and was able to go faster on the last 1k. Nate said he wanted these at race pace for 8k, and these were right around 5:20 pace (except the 1k was about 5 flat) so I was happy with it.

Warmup to our home course (we're hosting a meet on Saturday) then 20min steady state, and 3x400m. Felt very very tired today, probably the stress from midterms getting to me. It's been a rough week.

Weights after, then climbing, which lemme tell ya. Don't expect to do much climbing right after weights. You will be wrecked.

This was the last race of my season, because I'm not going to conference or anything. Pretty crazy that my first collegiate season is already over. The race went well. It's 2 laps, 2.8k each lap. So 5.6k race. About half of each lap is uphill, so that was fun... I kept the first lap fairly casual so I wouldn't die on the second lap, and I executed that well. I came through the lap at 10:19 and finished at 20:45 so that was good. I felt like I was able to push the whole time. Good stuff.

Super crappy workout today due to lack of taking care of myself. The workout was mile, 4 mile tempo, mile. Haha idk if you could even call the tempo a tempo but it was an attempt. Not a good day at all but that's alright, it happens.
