8 today after taking 2/4 finals. They weren't too bad because both professors said we could use our notes 😂 anyway, on the run we decided to go up Chinese Peak (we lifted before this btw) and it got crazy steep and I didn't have enough miles to do the whole thing anyway so I turned around 3 miles in and finished off with a cemetery loop to get to 8

Easy 6 today, I went up city creek which was awesome because trails in the snow are just so much fun. It was super beautiful up there and the creek was frozen over which was kinda cool. Super peaceful. I have final number 3 today!

We had a nice little workout today. 2x10min LT with 2 minutes rest. 5:35 pace for the first 10 minutes and 5:32 pace for the second 10 minutes. I felt pretty good about it especially because it was about 20 degrees, good stuff

I had my last final (biology) at 7:30 and I did the math and got at least 87% so that was good! Then I did my run and lifted. On the way back on my run I stopped by the pharmacy to get some iron, that was fun to run back home with 😂

Long run in St George. We stopped here to run then drove the rest of the way to California. It took a good 5 miles to warm up because I'd been sitting in the car forever and I was tired anyway. But after that the run was good. Shout-out to Conner Mantz because he caught me when I had one more mile and ran with me for my last mile. It's too bad I was done because it would've been nice to have someone the whole time. Anyway, I'm glad he was there!

Also, I might request a longer long run because 12 miles is starting to not feel bad at all

I was only able to get 6 in this morning before DL because I had a little speed workout that took forever. it was 4x10sec hill sprint, 4x20sec hill sprint. I did it on an overpass because there are no hills around here and that worked just fine! At least my quads are telling me that was just fine lol

P.S. I dropped my phone yesterday in DL and the screen was slowly consumed by blackness so it is 100% broken. Juuuusssttt great! But for real DL is super fun

10 this morning... I'm pretty wrecked from the last couple days so it wasn't very fast but it's done! One more day of waking up freaking early then I'm back home!

 

Update: As I write this I have 36,452 steps on the day according to my watch. Lots of running and lots of walking

Last day of running in California, we drove back today. I only did 6 because something in my ankle tightened up pretty bad and it definitely hurts so I will take a look at that. I might be cross training for the next couple days to be safe.

I did the workout today, 6x30sec hill repeats. The pace just said "fast" so I did that I guess haha. I was pretty wrecked afterward because I'm still sick and my ankle flared up, so I just did 4.5

I did 7 after work today. I was able to work a 9 hour shift which was long but I'm glad I got the hours because I need the money. I'm feeling a lot better as far as sickness goes, but my ankle hurt decently bad the whole time. It never got super bad so I kept going, but idk how it's gonna feel tomorrow.

Biking today. I did a little tuning up on my vintage road bike and when I got 30min out the pedal literally fell off. So shout-out to Logan for picking me up. Then I went to the legacy center and finished on a stationary bike and lifted. Any and all prayers for my ankle are appreciated.

I put the pedal back on my bike and did 7 miles before it fell off again. So I was able to make it home and I fixed it for good my putting some of the pipe tape stuff on the threads and it stayed on so that was good. I went back out and biked about 1/2-2/3 of the way up suncrest (which lemme tell ya... it's a doozie) and on the way down I got going 42 mph WHICH IS SO MUCH FUN but I wasn't wearing a helmet so I'll do that next time. I think I'm gonna send it all the way up suncrest on Monday.
