Met up with past teammate, fellow Lehi alum, Ryan Raff. We started at Lehi and had a very chill run down to Willowcreek, over one street to the north, and then back. 40 minutes and got in 6 miles. 

So my Hoka Clifton’s were packed away safely during my mission and they don’t have an insane amount of mileage so I wanted to get them out, see how they feel and all that. Very first part of the run I was a little scared, they felt interesting, but after the first part they started to feel really good, really soft. Excited to run more in them.

Herriman Trails 50 minutes / 7.3 and then 6x100 strides. 

Went with Steady Parker up to the ol Herriman cross country course and met Christian and Jamison. From the start Christian and Parker went out hard, but I was taking it easy. Ran all around the old course and other trails out there. It was really fun. If you wanted to run hills, there are some pretty large ones out there. Did my 50 minutes and got just over 7.25. Then went to a flat street and did 6 strides.

Met the guys at Dry Creek. We did the good ole fishy park run. More technically speaking we hopped on 900 N, straight shot passed the fishy park which is actually named Hunter Park but we call it that because part of the playground has a giant fish. Good time with the homies.

60 minutes / 6:36ap / MCT 

Had the pleasure of having my dad bike next to me while I did 60 minutes on the Murdock Canal Trail. Slept in and went a lil later in the day, it was pretty hot. Not unbearable, but undesirable enough to make me want to go to sleep earlier and get up earlier. Ice bath in the solw with the Heaps who had just completed a 22 miler!
