45 minutes with 6x100 strides. 

Met my main man Steadyparker at North Lake and we ran up into Lehi, returning on 3rd west. It was a nice chill run, not too hot. I ran in my Zantes for the first time since being back. They felt good. Got 6.78 in the 45 (6:38pace) and then the barefoot strides on grass.

Skyridge XC Camp, Deer Creek trail! 60 minutes easy. 

Rode up to Deer Creek with @steadyparker and got to go run on probs my fav trail ever. It was kinda sad I only had 60 minutes but grateful to run there after well over 2 years. 60 minutes easy pace, got 8.8. Feeling good. 

The team went down to Deer Creek and swam around. It was a really fun time!

Deer Creek / 45 minute progression run 

Because of a fire in Spanish Fork, the valley filled up with smoke once again this summer. After my doctors appointment my dad said I could do my run at Deer Creek and it would be better so I did that. @steadyparker met me at AFHS and we drove up. By the time that we started it was already like 1pm which sucked parce qu'il faisait chaud quoi.

Started off slower than yesterday cuz I had to negative split. 7:26,7:14, 6:28, 6:19, 6:22, 6:19 #slaythedragon, 6:00 pace for .79. Wasn't a great progression looking at the mile splits but thats cuz you cant decide where the hills are. I just made sure that the effort progressed. Happy with it. Great time in the solw after.

Weber Gang, 77ish minutes / 11.11 

Stayed over at my grandparents house in Bountiful. They just celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary so shout out to them! 

Met the guys at the locker room. We had a nice group of guys there: Tracen, Jacob, Joe, Taylor, Zach. Austin was there but I think he cross trained. We ran on Upper, dropped down to the Parkway and after that instead of turning right like normal we went left. I think, I just followed. The last few miles of the run weren’t very fun as it was gradual uphill and we would climb a street, cut over, climb another. Joe went back with me at 75 (the others did 90) and we hopped on this trail at Mt.Ogden to get back and it was a pretty good climb hahah it was great. Good week of building.
