AM- Well, I was told today was 50% with pickups but that was false information. We actually did a mile warm, 60% with 30 second pickups every 90 seconds for 5 Miles. I actually did really well though! I stayed with the main group of girls solidly for 3.5 Miles. From 3.5-4 I started falling off a little, and my last mile, my pickups were a little non existent but I kept a solid pace and  pretty darn good. Mile cool down. Only 6 girls did the whole thing and I was one of them! Hallelujah! 4 days of speed is done!! 

Also, coach told me that my workout yseterday was great and that i should probably be jumping to the faster group soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which also means, that i hopefully will get to travel to the first meet after the break.

On Friday after and during our workout, my Achilles was very tender and I woke up Saturday to run and it killed. I made it to the end of the street and flipped. I iced and did some other workout stuff and drove home to get my straussburg sock. Hopefully i caught it soon enough that it goes away ASAP.

easy 5 this morning. I felt kinda sluggish and my pace was kinda slow. It was so cold and my face felt like it was gonna fall off. Can it be summer already? haha. I'll probably go a couple more later in the day.

6 miles with Alison. We ran down toward the hospital, looped by canyon view and then back. My achilles felt really good through 4.5 miles and then it started to feel kinda tender. Alison threw up. It was gross. It was also freeeeezing again today. 

I have no assignments due for the rest of this week and only one final next week and it isnt even comprehensive. As long as I get 25/50 on it, i will still get an A lol. Next semester is going to kill me when I have to do real work with actual classes, not to mention the team will be traveling almost every weekend for the entire semester (I really hope i get to go). We'll see how this goes. ALSO I have nutrition with Julieta which is DOPE! Im excited about that.

My goodness, I slept a lot last night again and it was amazing. I ran at 4:00 with Angie, Morgan and Julieta. My body was tired and I hacked up a lung. I was sick last week and now it’s just kinda the lingering tiredness and annoying cough that never goes away.  We did cross hollows and it was freezing. I thought my face was going to fall off. Rolled out and stuff in the trainers and then I did some abs when I got home.

SUU won the basketball game. It was a fun one to watch :)

Last night I was just sleeping my night away and at like 1:30 Alison came and knocked on my door and said there was someone on the back deck outside her window. Apparently it sounded like an old man, but she was too scared to look. Itsketched me out a little but i feel like it was probably the freshman boys being stupid. 

AM- 2 miles really easy this morning. My legs were feeling really pooped this morning. It was a good shakeout though

PM- 6 with julieta angie and sharlie. we did canyon and i felt wayyy better than this morning. If my run this afternoon was as tiring as this morning i think i would have cried.

On my way home from my run i stopped to get gas and locked my keys in the car so that waas eventful. I thought my face was going to fall off from embarassment mixed with freezing.

Am- 2 Miles easy just around cedar

I had an appointment with the physical therapist. It was a different one today but she was cool. She worked my Achilles today too which was nice. I hope that stupid issue goes away shortly. I went to lunch with Ellie while I was in St George at Durango’s. it was delicious.

Pm- I ran 4 miles while ellie rode her bike. What a nice sister. 

I saw Caroline today and we had a deep conversation about weird stuff lol. I miss her a lot

Im supposed to take the day off for my achilles. It is also probably good that I have to take the day off cuz i keep feeling better and then i run and my cough comes back and KILLS me. 

I cleaned our kitchen today, and if i do say so myself, it is pretty darn amazingly clean. No one, actually one induvidual imparticularly, is allowed in there cuz they keep cookinng steak in our freaking kitchen and then he goes home and leaves a mess. 

I should be studying for my only final, but i have no motivation to study at this present moment so im taking a blogging break.

one more day of no miles. I did some abs and another workout thing. 

We had our team party and we did a white elephant. I brought 2 gold fish and Linnea got them! She even bought them a tank and rocks and food.

KaSandra got a cat and it is very cute.

well, today was an interesting morningish run. me and alison went and i felt awful. I could not breathe for anything cuz my nose was running like crazy, and my legs were struggling to move. Then I got a gnarly bloody nose so thats cool. i didnt really wanna stop so i just ran home. Good thing i didnt wear white lol

Did a good ab workout and a just sweat workout on just dance. It wasnt very hard lol but it was fun. 

Pm- I ran 2 miles down main street with allll the lights on and it was so pretty. Apparrently macey and her friends do it every year so i went with them. Alison came too and it was a good time. 

I was in the weirdest dancing mood  and danced the night away. I also drove max's stick car and it was so fun. I like his alot. I want an old jeep i decided. 

I also packed up my whole house and i literally fit everything i own in my car and i am so impressed with my packing abilities cuz i have ALOT of stuff. I am excited to move into a less crappy house, but real sad that i am not living with Sam and Sierra anymore. Wherever they live is the social gathering house and now i will not live in it anymore. 

I also went bowling and some crazy stuff happened on my last frame and my score got all messed up. i apparently only bowled a 93, but that was a lie, it should have been a 115 which is a bowling PR for me. Me and Josh and Jiraa and Max won and the other team had to buy us ice cream. 

Also, on the way to get ice cream, christian was being christian and was driving very scarily and he almost hit us. And i said " i hope he gets pulled over" and not even a minute later, there he was pulled over on the side of the road and it was slightly funny.

6.5 up towards the temple with Alison. The hill up there is soooooo much harder than it looks to run than while driving. I thought we were gonna die. 

Can’t wait to go home for the break!

I’m moving into the new house today with macey so this will be fun. I’m not a huge fan of being houseless

Am- 5 Miles easy. Averaged 7:15 and it felt great! Some nice guy honked and waved at literally everyone that was outside this morning and it was a little funny. I ran past Colton’s house and up past Sullivan. That hill used to kill me and it wasn’t even bad so that’s good. Also a dumb song called follow your arrow was stuck in my head the whole time and it was annoying. Abs after 

Also not gonna lie, It’s not that fun to come home when al my siblings are at school and I’m home alone with a list of chores 

Also Christian Left his car at my house cuz he flew outta St George and his parents think I’m gonna steal his car so I had to mail him his keys today lol 

Pm- 3.75 Miles. I met with the team today which was fun! We ran towards green springs and on the way back some lady’s car died and needed help pushing it. she was a very stubborn and difficult person to work with and it was making me very angry. Anyways, we pushed her car out of the freeway exit up to the chevron gas station and then ran back to get jumper cables. When we got back, she was gone. Hopefully that means she got help

AM- 3.75 with scottie before his school. I was freezing!! also, I havent woken up at 6:00 in who knows how long. Also, the stars were out which was dope. I miss good ol chats with scottie.

Last night I went to my room to chill cuz everyone was driving me a little nuts, and i fell asleep for 3 hours and then woke up at 11:30 and couldnt sleep for like an hour. hate it when that happens. 

PM- 6.25 with the girls and Robs at pracitce. It was very fun to get to go and run with them again and im SUPER happy Roberts was there. I miss running with him everyday. We ran a little on the track and then we ran some laps on the grass. 7:50 average

Ooh, i did some abs again. I’m trying to build a habit of doing at least something. Today was just some planks

I watched an entire season of friends today and also did a puzzle for 5 hours. That’s what happens apparently when all of everyone is at school and my parents are at work

Well, I decided to run to the high school and then add miles with the team. I felt real good and they were solid miles. Mitchell and brynlee drove passed and screamed at me so that was cool. Also I biffed it hardcore on my run and it was very slow motion and now my chin hurts. 

I went to Dairy Queen with Bayless and Alli. That was a fun time. I miss them a lot. Bayless also showed me his dog and it attacked me.

Am- 4 Miles chill with ellie and alli. There is a slight anount of snow! 

I’m real sad cuz I’ve been putting wayy to much blood sweat and tears into this dumb puzzle and when I got back from my run, scottie had dumped the whole thing all over the floor and now I pretty much have to start over. yay

PM- one of those runs to get out all my frustration. Just short cuz I have jumped mileage a lot this week so I chilled it out today. My aunt Kathy made cinnamon rolls and I had one and they were sooo good

6 Miles at chuckwalla with Roberts and ell and jace and add and alli. That’s my favorite trail and I’m real glad we did it. We looped up to the lookout and around. It was about 4.5 so I added a mile and a half up the paved trail afterward. It was cold and crisp but felt so lovely. 

2.75 Miles with scottie in the evening. Nice and chill. It’s nice that ellie and Scottie run miles at different times so I can go with both of them! 

I got my oil changed today and literally the exact mile I was supposed to get it change at, I pulled into Paxman auto! It was so dope and I’m very impressed with myself.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! 

AM- 5.5 with Dad and El. We did the Atkin loop. At first I felt a little sluggish but by the end I felt great and did a quick finish on my own. Christmas runs are the best, you don’t even have to stop to the cross the road cuz no one is out in the morning  

I got a NEW WATCH!!! The vivoactive 3. It is white and beautiful and amazing and it does so much stuff that I have no idea how to work, but nonetheless it is the best watch I ever did own. 

Also, Santa brought us hot chocolate candy canes and at first they sounded disgusting, and I never thought I’d say this, but they are sooo good!!

PM- 1.5 home from my grandparents to get in a few more miles. We are going to play ultimate and I’m pumped cuz we haven’t played for a while and I love that game

AM- 7.75 Miles. Quite the run considering we lost a 1/4 of the party and couldn’t find them.  Anyways, it was a decent run. We ran out on the dam road and did a slowish tempo for 15 minutes at about 6:50 pace. 

My butt is VERY sore from our very intense game of ultimate yesterday, but my team won so it was worth it. We were winning 5-1 and then the other team somehow got ahead 10-5 and we caught up and won 12-11. It was liiit

PM-1.5 Mile shakeout with bent  I had to beg him to come with me but finally after I annoyed him enough he came with me

So the HS girls planned a run and I went with el, but no one showed up except for us two. We ended up doing roller coasters which I am definitely ok with cuz I love that run. My legs were real tired today and we went slow so that was nice. We also saw Jose on the river trail when we added on after!

I went to bed at 8:15 yesterday so that was dope!  

PM- 2.5 Miles with myself around the neighborhood. Decent miles. Pretty chill again

I had a very hard time wanting to get out and run today so I just put it off all day. But by the time I finally got out at 7:30 I felt really good!! I ran with Ellie and I just did her workout with her. 60 minutes and 1,1,2,1,3 minute pickups. We ran up the road past Sullivan and up telegraph to Hart’s and flippped. My calves got really really tight about half way and my feet started feeling like your face does when you have a cavity and they numb you and then it starts to unnumb. Ellie made me loosen my shoes and it felt wayyy better, I guess I didn’t realize how tight they were. We made it about 7.5 and then I added on after to make 8.00

I became a ping pong pro today! I played all the day.

I also got the hiccups this morning and they didn’t go away til I ran (apparently that’s the cure I’ve been looking for all my life) but they came back when I stopped  

OOH!! Also we went to THE GREATEST SHOWMAN and it was SOOOOOOO GOOOD! I very much enjoyed it. The best part is when Helen is a tree. Me and El busted up. Plus Zac Efron is real cool

AM- 5 on mustang pass. Pretty chill today so that was nice. I’m so sad that they ruined the beginning of the trail. They should not be able to put houses on dope trails. Also Ellie had a conversation with some random lady that we thought was a girl who was running With us Mom but it wasn’t. So that was funny 

PM- 2.25 on the Owen loop. great view, good company.

10 miles with my dad again. We ran from past boulevard warehouse through Hell hole and to my house. It was a good run 

Drove to payson and am staying with Alison. We went ice skating and I biffed it 2 times and it was very cold and wet and everyone laughed at me. It was a good time 

We went to the UVU New Years party with some people from the team and it was seriously so fun. I have never gone so hard at a dance or party and it was liit. My whole body hurts
