Warm up with the guys and then grass loops. Ankle felt normal. I wanted to do a workout tomorrow but coach said to finish the week out with distance runs.

Parkway + BST add-on. Nice run on the Parkway, was able to get into a rhythm and then wanted to get a little bit of uphill so I headed up the BST which was really nice.

Met by the toll road but instead of running on the parkway we ran into the small town and then up the mountain onto a really nice dirt path. We got past one fence but then on the second one which was a little harder to get through we turned around. You could add on going the other way though. Definitely gonna come back and run there again. Excited for a tempo tomorrow :)

Tempo at 21st street pond. Did 3 miles 5:31, 5:28, 5:33, ninety seconds rest, 5:29. Felt a little tired due to lack of sleep, need to do better on that.

Short workout today. 8x60 seconds uphill on the golf course with 90 seconds rest. It was a good time, getting stronger little by little.

Ran with good old Travis Feeny who recently returned from his mish in Tallahassee. He's in surprisingly good shape tho. We met at Rainbow and ran up the BST (where I ran on Saturday) but instead of going out on the flat road we kept climbing on another trail. It was nice, had a good view, and he said it kept going all the way to Ben Lomond.

Power run which means 21st street pond. The first part was 4.25 at 5:35-40 pace. I ran it with Zach and we were in the range. I was feeling good. Even at the end, I wasn't feeling very fatigued. We got about a 90-second break and then finish to 6. Since I was feeling good I ran more with Dylan and Carson and was able to drop the pace. Good workout, just gotta keep working and getting a little better every day.

6x3:15 at 5:12 pace on Murdock Canal. Shout out to Mike, he rode by on the bike as I was starting my first one. It was a little hard for me to keep the pace consistent for the whole 3:15 since I'm more used to running tempo pace. Couldn't quite get the pace down to 5:12 avg for all of them but I'm still happy with it.

Didn't have time to run in the morning so I went with the guys who were doubling. It was so freaking hot! We ran up the road and took a left onto a dirt trail. It was a solid climb on the way out.

Warm-up up the road. 3 mile tempo down, 90 sec rest, 1 mile tempo up. Coming down the range was 5:15-20 and we were inside on all of them. The mile back up went by surprisingly quick and it was hard but I think I could have gone harder while still not going anaerobic.

Last day of camp :( it goes by so fast! We drove about 15 minutes to a trail that we didn't do last year. I really enjoyed it. It sure did climb! But Coach P who hadn't run the trail in forever forgot to remind us to go a certain way and so we kept on climbing when it would have flattened out. Right before I flipped there started to be lots of trees and the trail widened and it reminded me of horseback riding nature. Fun run. Strides.

First time ever on the Jeremy Ranch Trail. After the run I can say that I really liked it and I can see why so many people run there. Hit 6:10's going out (downhills) and 6:40's (uphills) on the way back. Great Saturday long run.

Beus. I think the workout was (3x400,1x800) x3 or 4. I can’t remember, I’m putting this in 5 days later. Something with 4’s and 8’s. It was good. Lifting after was cool expect I prolly went a little too hard #couldn’tsitdownthenextday
