quite the day.

4 miles and some world cup soccer. it was soooo lit. we each were a country and all played for ourselves. i lost miserably cuz i suck at soccer sooooo bad. then we played on teams so that made everything a little better haha. 

i headed to st george cuz my grandparents rented the pool so i went to that and it was a blast. we also made the longest chain on record at that pool down the hydrotube. 13!!!! it was fun to see a lot of the pv team that i havent seen in a while as well. 

also idk what happened but as i was driving home i got super sick and pulled off the side of the freeway to throw up. ellie wasnt feeling great either so i think that we must have ate something weird. 

also i watched the scariest movie of my entire life

spikeball sunday!!!! those are my favorite days where we all just chill and have a good time. it was beautiful outside as well. i brought my hammock to just chill when we werent playing. me and koy were a team for a little and i will say, we did much better than the last time we played. then me and max. hes good, as always so we made it to the championships and lost to josh and mike. then me and mike were a team and we sucked real bad (but it wasnt my fault)

we bbq'd after at the guys' house with a bunch of ppl. in the end, as usual it was just me and mike and max and koy and josh. we just chilled for a long while and it was actually a way good time.

Am- we started official team lifting today and it was actually way fun. me and alison were partners and its fun to be with her cuz we can be serious about something but also have a real good time.

5 miles afterwards, it was quite hot today. me and alison tried to do this loop up by the temple but i forgot where to turn so we got real lost and ended up at this real weird spot. it was a good time though. a few laps on the track afterwards. 

Pm- 3 with Sam. it was soooo nice cuz i was just taking a short nap on the couch and sam came in from work 3 hours earlier than normal so i got to run with her. it was also raining(thats why she came home) it was the best run ever! i love the rain so so so much! and its rained saturday and sunday AND monday!! its amazing!!

then my aunt caroline drove through cedar today so we went to dinner and it was a very good time

today was honestly the best run of the entire summer. something just clicked and it was so good. i didnt struggle to hit pace at all, in fact it felt so easy to even just go 7:15. i ran 3 and did a mile ana half barefoot on the grass. and then ran home. aside from the grass mile, my average pace was 7:15 which was wayyy faster than i have hit all summer.

Me and Sam and Alison and mike and Nate and Christian met up and ran razor backs. It was very hard but very fun, and definitely kinda slow. But was good to get out and just go because as of late I keep telling myself “I’ll go farther when I’m in better shape” and keep forgetting that the only way to get in better shape is by pushing myself. I’m going to be doing a lot more of that this summer because I do want to be good and I want to be committed but I have not done what it takes to be those things. So starting right here, right now I’m going to be better. Especially about eating and waking up and not pushing everything important to the side. 

Also mike is moving back to Canada tomorrow. It will be way wierd to not have him on the team

5.5 with Alison. And then we did some strides and ran back to my house. We took it pretty chill. My body was feeling so tired. Averaged about 7:40 

At 11;30 I went to the pool with max and aqua jogged for a half hour. We did 45 seconds hard 15 seconds easy. It feels good to go on occasion because I feel like I can get in a good workout with out putting so much stress on my body. I’m gonna start going a few times a week. 

Me and max and Alison and Nate went and played pickle ball for 3.5 hours and it was seriously so so so fun. It’s been a minute since I’ve played

i ran to the track to meet up with alison for a few miles before weights. I went 1.5 and then we went about 4 so that was way nice to get most of it done. 

weights was hard today but way good! we did sooooo many jumping things and i am gonna be so sore in my butt,  i can already feel it. 

2.5 more afterwards, one of them on the grass. sooooo nice getting it all done early. i need to be better about that. 

Today is Christians birthday so we are  going to brian head. me and alison got him a funny present lol.

Today was literally the best day of the entire summer. it was soooo fun. so i woke up and drove to enterprise for the 10k. literally no one was there, but its fine lol. I ran 42:00 which was a good tempo. 6:50ish was the average pace.  then me and scottie and my dad and bent and mikey ran around and I got to 8 miles. Then we ate breakfast in the park with my grandparents. My fam went for a drive up ox valley and we saw so many baby deer. they even still had spots on them! they were sooo sooo cute! We watched the parade and got so much candy and so many shirts and frisbees and ice cream sandwhiches and they even threw fidget spinners lol. 

Afterwards, i drove back to cedar and me and alison and max and nate went to toquerville falls and chilled for the afternoon. it was sooooooooo scary driving on the bumpy road but i didnt kill anyone. then we went to the park and played in the splashpad and some spikeball til max broke the net. 

Then we went to my house and changed and played a bunch of games until all my fam came over for a bbq, and Sam and Koy met us there too. afterwards we played the best game of ultimate of my entire life. I always love ultimate but that game was seriously the best game ever!!!!! then hommade ice cream and fireworks. It was the best :)))

Last night was the best sleep i have ever had. i slept on alisons couch because i am so sick of sleeping in my hot stuffy no air condidtioned room. then we ran this morning. we just did canyon from her house and it ended up about 5.5 and then we did 10 strides. 

PM- 6 more- 2 with sam and 4 with max. it honestly felt soooo good to get out again. my body was feeling so good and it was just all around and good run. definitley wasnt planning on going 6 more but since i felt good and only went 3 yesterday cuz i was at the dumb instacare for forever, i just kept going and it felt nice

4 miles with sam before weights. it was a decent run, my body felt good and then we lifted and it was a good time as always.

 Went to the grind and to this dope bookstore and a game place with max and it was dope.

This is the longest shift of my entire life. I wanna go home and finish my miles and go to bed

I didn't set an alarm last night and was just gonna get up for work and do my run tonight, but my body woke up and its a good thing or else id hate myself for not getting up. anyways, sam had alread left so i was just gonna go do daisy loop to dikes before work by myself. A mile in i had to go to the bathroom and there was a portapotty and so i went and when i came out sam was running down the road!!! so i did most of my run with sam which was very nice cuz i did not want to be running by myself.7:55 was our average pace, and it felt good. the first few were real slow and by the end we were going pretty quick which was way nice. I still need a few more; ill hit them before the RODEO!!!
