AM: Salt City Mile

It was my first time racing in a while and I'm really happy about it. I was able to fork out a 5:07 which wasn't what I was looking for, but I'm still happy about. I went out strong with the lead group, but I think I went out too fast. I surged just a bit to try and gain an advantage of the group and it slowed me down on the "3 lap" of the mile, but I finished strong. It was fun to go out and race and I also made a couple of new friends. Can't wait to see improvement in my next race.

PM: 7 miles

Ran out to the gully and ran the gully long run. I guess that it's super popular on Labor Day, because I either had to stop or change my course for about 10 horses. Either way I still ended up averaging about a 7:40 pace. For whatever reason (I think I ate too close to my run) my stomach was upset to whole run, but I ended up handling it pretty well. Overall I am surprised how fast my fitness level has grown. I didn't feel like I was straining myself at all during that run like I have recently and my shins have be pain free for a while now. I can't wait to start bumping up the pace and mileage in the upcoming weeks.

My biggest enemy in running is heat and today was a hard battle with it. I ran pretty well though, had to slow down in a couple of spots so I could conserve some energy, but overall I would say that I won this one. Didn't think my body was ready to run this far averaging a 6:50 pace, but it kinda happened so, ya. Can't wait to see what else I can do.

AM: 4 mile walk

Man it's been a couple of rough days. I was attacked by an angry swarm of wasps and bitten all over. My legs went into shock and have swelled up a ton and so I haven't been able to run until they recovered. So this morning I walked to test them out and see how'd they do.

PM: 8 miles

Wow my legs feel great. Must have gotten some running serum in those bites, but I felt great. Ran 8 miles averaging a 6:44 min pace. Feels good to be flying again. Afterwards I ran 6 striders.

I didn't get to do what I wanted today workout wise becauase my truck was in the shop until 6 and so I couldn't drive to the gully so next week I will run the gully 2 times, but one time is good enough. I took it faster than usual because I'm trying to ramp up my mileage and pace to improve my times so today I averaged a 6:40 min pace which I'm pretty proud of. But it will get faster and faster within the next weeks. Stretching and pull ups right before bed.

PM: 4 mile hike

Went on a crazy hike. It was 2 miles to the top, but we gain 1000 feet with each mile so it was wayyyyyyy steep. When I got home to run, my legs were real shakey and wobbly so I called it a day. Did a good hard set of pull ups though.

Today just kinda went on auto pilot. Walked outside ran down the street and just started going without a planned route or workout. After a couple of miles I found myself at the start of the gully, then at the park up top so ended up doing the gully longer run and than ran home. I averaged about a 7:20 pace. My legs were super tired from yesterday's hike, but I pushed through.

I decided that I am going to walk more in the evenings to help with my recovery, but sometimes I get bored so I've started to listen to podcasts. Any suggestions for some good ones?

Had an amazing run today. Went out to the Draper Alpine Road and ran up and down it until I got 12 miles. I gained a total of 2,158 ft while averaging a 7:13 pace. It felt really good and I felt great the whole time aerobically and physically. More to come tonight.
