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!!!</p> Sat, 28 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 27, 2018 <p>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.</p> <p>&nbsp;Went to the grind and to this dope bookstore and a game place with max and it was dope.</p> <p>This is the longest shift of my entire life. I wanna go home and finish my miles and go to bed</p> Fri, 27 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 26, 2018 <p>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.&nbsp;</p> <p>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</p> Thu, 26 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 25, 2018 <p>3 miles by myself before lifting. Lifting was soooo hard but so fun today. we did like a zillion jumps right into squats and im definitely gonna feel that one in the morning.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 25 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 24, 2018 <p>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.&nbsp;I ran 42:00 which was a good tempo. 6:50ish was the average pace.&nbsp; 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&nbsp;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.&nbsp;</p> <p>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.&nbsp;</p> <p>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 :)))</p> Tue, 24 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 23, 2018 <p>4 easy 7:40 avg and weights</p> Mon, 23 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 18, 2018 <p>i ran to the track to meet up with alison for a few miles before weights.
