I did a harder workout on the track today. It was exhausting, but I know it will pay off. 

I warmed up for mile and a half then then a 400, 800, and 1200 at 5k goal pace. I was planning on doing a 1600 after the 1200, but I was dead so I told myself if i hit the 1200 right then i would do this workout again in a few weeks with the 1600 added to it. 

So my goal is 18:00 for a 3 mile. That ends up being 90s per 400. The 400 was easy to recover from with a 3 minute rest. I ran it in 87s. Rested 3 mins. The 800 was in 2:56. Rested 3 mins. The. I ran the 1200 in 4:26. They were all just a bit faster than 6:00 minute pace.

I ended by walking a lap, doing 20 push-ups and 30 crunches then cooling down with 3 laps on the track  it was tough and I didn’t finish the extra mile, but I’m happy that I’m getting some fast-ER running in.

 Couldn’t sleep the night before,  So it was an interesting race. There were probably only 20 or 30 runners just because it was a small charity 5K in memory of one of my friends who passed away three years ago while a erving her mission in Argentina. Overall it was a fun race even though I didn’t hit a great time.

I went on a warm run at about 6pm. I ran down towards maverick then on Main Street to the other side of campus up the hill on the east side and down to my apartment. It was good run. I’m learning how to run long even when I’m tired. I ran the hill pretty hard and I felt good afterward. I finished with 50 push-ups.

3 mile run pretty simple. I was super hungry afterward! I ate a nice salad and a banana. :)

Does running late to class count?

I had to move apartments as well as go to 4 classes and a meeting for the College Success program on campus. I didn’t make the time to run.

Nice run. My calf’s were pretty tight so it was a bit tough but I made it through. I ended with about 30 push-ups. 15 were parallel with my body. 15 at a square.

I ran around campus, the steep side first. Made it to the top in 7 minutes. I ran around the track once and did 8 stadiums. Felt great to get out early.

1 mile plus 4 stadiums. I drove 3 hours down to Bear Lake and went wake boarding for the first time since before my mission in 2015. It was a blast but I was exhausted afterward! I decided I had it in me to slalom ski so I tried it and I got up first try! Some things never leave you, they are just in your blood.

I did one loop around campus and was going for a second when I got just past the Rexburg temple I was struggling so I cut through campus back home. It felt really good, I’m getting more into distance, instead of being a wimp and calling it good at 3 miles.
