After a sub par january, I might as well log my miles again. January was spent at low mileage due to a bit of an achilles flare up, I'm good now. This is my first week back at full mileage, and it just so happened to fall on a four days of effort week lol. Just so happened to be all 60%'s as well, but a little shorter for me. Today was good. Warmed up a mile, then started 60% in Walmart canyon. Splits were 5:57, 5:47, 5:51, 5:54, 5:29. First 3 miles were downhill, last 2 up heartbreak hill. Surprised with that close in 5:29, I guess my fitness is a little better than I thought it was. Ran this with Smiles, he's a good guy. His lungs were burning from sickness but he did well regardless. Good stuff. Cooled down 4 miles for 10.

Another 60% today, this one 4 miles. Warmed up 2 miles to main street, then tempoed down. Splits were 5:54, 6:02 (almost got hit by a car lol), 5:42, 5:34. Finished at bicentennial. Definitely felt yesterday's tempo. Ran this with smiles again. It's always fun to do or finish workouts at bicentennial, reminds me of the high school days. Cooled down 4 back to the school, 10 total. Good stuff

Another 60%. This was a hard one. Warmed up out to farm run, then started. Splits were 5:58, 5:46, 5:41, 5:37 (into 20mph wind). Insane today! Good stuff though. Cooled down back to the school for 10 total.

Big mileage and workout day today. Last day of four days of effort. Another good ol 60%. Man my base for outdoor is gonna be solid. Ran with a solid group of liam, Aidan, Mike, mark, koy, jquinn, and myself. Did 60% to end of the world, which is my absolute favorite, it's all slight downhill and wind at our backs, and then Coach picks us up and drives us back to the school at the end, 10 miles out. Warmed up a mile and then got started. Splits were 5:50, 5:43, 5:41, 5:43, 5:49, 6:18 (really starting to grind; haven't tempoed this long in a while), 6:03, 5:52. Really proud of how I brought it back the last 2 miles instead of blowing up. Cooled down another mile, then did 10x100m ish strides at 800m pace. Then the ride back from Coach, very stiff getting out of the car. Good stuff from everyone today. Coach recommended that I take Saturday and Sunday off since my first week back at full mileage was a 4 days of effort week.

Coach said to take today off, so I didn't run a full 12, but I did think it'd be a good idea to get a little shakeout in so I don't tighten up like crazy. 3 miles easy no watch, felt extremely sore and tight. I'll recover though, that was a solid week.

Ran 8 out behind the secret ridge to the stone shacks. Muddy, hills, technical. Not used to it anymore lol. No tape on the achilles but also no pain in the achilles. Good stuff. Was gonna shakeout with Aidan but got bogged down by homework, don't @ me, Aidan

Workout today. warmup, drills, 2 mile warmup, strides, then the plan was 6x1k @2:47-3:15 w 2:00 rest, then 2x400m @3k pace w 3:00 rest. Coach ended up shortening the workout because it was looking like we were struggling because of the wind. Ended up being 5x1k. I hit 3:08, 3:11, 3:22, 3:19, 3:15 for an avg of 3:15. Ended up being more like 90sec rest for me, because coach started the recovery when the first guy comes through and they were hitting like low 2:50s. Glad to have averaged within the range, even if it was the slower end of the range. Then cooled down 3.8 with josh, kasey, mark, and aidan. Legs are tired; gotta recover hard.

Morning: steeple practice. Warmed up and drills, then we graduated to the regulation height when we jumped the hurdles. I cleared them with okay form, the arms were all over the place, gotta tighten up the screws.

Afternoon: warmup, drills, then 50% in walmart canyon with Liam, mark, and Mike, 6:47 avg. Felt good, legs are tired but it's all good, will recover. Good time.

Detracted from something I'd normally do. Ran on the treadmill. For a long run. 12 freaking miles. I've failed myself officially. Nah it sucked but it was a good effort, 6:50 avg at retro fitness. I figured I didn't wanna get sick in the cold and I didn't want to slip and hurt anything so the treadmill was a decent option. Finished with some med ball work and light leg work, good stuff.

Met with smiles for an easy 7, 7:13 avg. Ran dikes. Normally hate dikes but I haven't done it in a while. Conference has been going well, makes me a little jealous that I'm redshirting, but I know that Coach knows what's best.
