7 miles with Sam on cross hollows. I felt really tired for the first mile and a half and then we got goin and it was way nice. 

I slept in a lot a lot a lot this morning. I woke up at 6:30 and went to the bathroom and then slept til 10:45. I haven’t been sleeping Super great so it felt nice to actually sleep good. 

Also sometimes it worries me that This week I went 6-7 miles every day and I feel so tired. And I’m supposed to get to 10 a day.  But at the same time I thought this when I was at like 4 miles a day haha so I’ll be fine. I’m getting fitter and I can feel it. I just gotta keep weird tight muscles and body aches under control.

Am- weights. It was a goooood workout this morning. Thought about running til it was 8 degrees, so I pushed it off. 

Pm- 5 with Sam up canyon. It was a little slow due to the snow on the trail. Last year I avoided running through the snow at all cost, and stuck to the sidewalks, but it was actually pretty fun! It kinda felt like running through the sand, but it was way funner. I added two around the school and then ran to the gym to meet Ells.

Am- 2 miles easy down Main Street. I thought it would be colder but it wasn’t bad. 7:43 avg

Pm- 5 total. 3 with Alison on park loop and 2 on Main Street by myself. 

I’ve been feeling really good for the last little bit. I’m excited to bump mileage but I’m gonna do it smartly. I’ve finally figured out how to stay healthy and haven’t had anything major happen all year. My goal for track is to keep it that way (and hopefully for a long time). Super pumped for track come January! 

I’m so ready for school to be done. I have 5 tests in the next 8 days. I might just move to the library for a few days. Also. I think I’m gonna get my first non A in my whole life. Rip to streak

Am- 6 with Sam. I had the hardest time warming up this morning. My body felt really tired, and my muscles were not wanting to move, and my gut hurt. Finally started feeling pretty good at 4.5 miles but we had weights so I kept it to 6 miles. Kept the pace pretty slow (although it didn’t feel as slow as it was) Partly due to not warming up, but it was also pretty icy for a lot of it. 7:59 avg. 

Pm- 2 miles easy on the treadmill. 

Last day for the gym class! Woot woot! Also i finished all my assignments and papers and I only have 4 more tests and looooota to study for. Woohoo!

me and christian made a gingerbread house and it was sooooo dope if i do say so myself. and we even beat alison and nate in the competition!

I have converted 2 people to the blog in the last week and I’m ecstatic!

8 with sam on cross hollows. I felt really good through 6 miles up heartbreak. Stopped at maverick to go to the bathroom. Then i started getting pretty tired the last 2 miles. I was pushing pretty hard but not going anywhere, kinda like those dreams where you’re running as fast as you can but are literally not moving an inch. 

2.5 with Christian. Felt pretty good. 7:22 avg. 

The ball of my right foot felt weird today. Like when I stepped and rolled up, it pulled my toe tendon underneath. Need to ice

7 miles out toward the airport. It felt soooo nice: my body, the weather, the foot, everything. I was just chillin and wanted to make it 7 without dying and to my surprise when I looked down at my watch I was hitting around 7:05 most of the time. With 2 left I decided I wanted to pick it up a little and make it a quicker finish. 6:30 and 6:35 for the last 2. 6:58 avg. 

Islands in the stream by Dolly Parton was Stuck in my head the whole time. Although it is a nice song, it got a lil annoying

5.4 with Preston in the morning on prospector. It was fun to run and catch up a little. It was hard. I had a tough time breathing for some reason. 8:17 average. Pretty decent for a trail. 

Went to Durango’s for lunch. I forgot how dang good it is 

3.6 with the PV Girls team. It was fun to catch up mostly with Addi. And fun to meet the new assistant girls coach. Missed coach robs tho, I thought I’d see him. 

Hiit workout after. It was sooooo hard haha but it was fun nonetheless. My foots Buggin a little again. I think it may be my black nike structures. Those are the shoes I wore when it began. And that’s what I had on this afternoon

Am- Scottie wanted to run and Bentley wanted to wait a lil. So 30 minutes with Scottie and then when he was done, 30 with bent. It felt ok. My body wanted to go but my hamstrings are sooooooo tight. Hopefully they’ll feel a little better tomorrow.

Probably should have done some pickups or something but I think I’ll throw some in tomorrow instead. Not too worried considering this will be my highest mileage week in a hot second 

Pm- 2 miles easy with bent on his bike around Nichols peak

Waited til a little later to run today. Finally got out at about 4:00. 7 up and down both sides of formaster with a little push up each side of the hill. 3xbathroom break, probably for the few too many treats I’ve had the last few days. thank heavens for porta potties, but I need to learn some self control in my eating habits. 

Scottie got his wisdom teeth out. He made me pay him 5$ to go to the dr office with him and he wasn’t even funny. Not even worth it and I’m a lil disappointed:/

9.25 with my dad on the bike. Drove out to green valley and ran home. It was nice to chat. But I’m mad he wouldn’t run with me. 7:30 average. It is a beautiful day. Too beautiful for december. I shoulda gone with a short sleeve shirt. 

We had our fam Christmas party and I learned a new game called code names. It was soooo fun. We also got some real winners in the white elephant exchange. Possibly some of the best ones yet

Am- 7 miles. The firsts few with my dad, Adam, Alli and Bent. They were kinda slow and then we picked it up a little bit once they flipped around. Me and my dad finished Atkin Loop and then around Nichols Peak. We had Duke with us so that was an adventure. I twisted my ankle while running the other day, and it and my Achilles has been bugging me. I’ve been icing a lot and sleeping with my straussburg sock on. And it is feeling much much much better but it’s still kinda hurting so I kept it kinda slow this morning. 8:00 avg 

Pm- 3 with Ell. ‘‘Twas a swell Christmas Eve run. (Also. We won the rook tournament)

Am- 7 miles out to Sullivan.  35 minutes with bent and the rest on my own. It was beautiful this morning. The fog was just lifting and everything looked so colorful. It was cool especially since I don’t see fog much. Some guy talked to me about ketones and Ragnar when bent stopped for the bathroom. Kinda weird but he was nice anyways. Achilles is still a little bothersome but not bad. 

After my run I felt really blah. Not my normal self. all I wanted to do was lay around and I took a nap and I wasn’t hungry (which never ever happens). Not quite sure what was going on.

Pm- went sand sledding and jeeping. and then to my aunt Rachel’s after for hot chocolate. Ran home 3 miles from there with my mom. It was a lil slow but it was fun :))

Am- 9 miles around stone cliff. Body was a lil tired today, but it was a fine run. 3x2:00 pickups just to get going a little. 7:30 avg.  

Achilles felt so good the first 2 miles and then it slowly went downhill from there. Idk what to do about it. It feels good in my structures but those have been making the ball of my foot hurt. My Achilles hurts in my vomeros. But the ball of my foot feels good in those. It hurts my Achilles to go uphill. But the ball of my foot feels better on uphill. My Strausburg sock makes my Achilles feel so much better but it makes the ball of my foot bend, which makes it hurt. It’s either one or the other and it’s annoying. 

Pm- 3 miles easy with bent in Cedar on parkloop. Crazy afternoon
