46:45 / Bonneville Shoreline Trail (Draper)

Went with my man @Ryguy and we hit up the BST. Climbed for the first 23 minutes, came back and still had some left cuz it was so much faster on the way down. Finished up to 6ix for the day. Good times.

First run in my new Ultra Boost uncaged version shoes. I was interested to see how they would feel with the whole sock elastic thing on the ankle but they felt good the entire time. I'm excited to use them in the rotation.

6x800 at 2:35-2:40 

Parked at Westlake and did my 15 minute warm up. I had 6-7x800 at 2:35-2:40. Decided to do them on the long straight road right in front of Westlake which is just under a half mile long. Times were 2:35,2:37,2:30,2:38,2:38. 90 sec rest. It took me longer than I wanted to to find the pace and settle into it. I would either start off too fast or too slow and have to adjust. Got it figured out tho. After six I felt good about it and chose not to do a seventh. Cool down on the grass behind the school which felt really nice. Need to do more barefoot running.

50 minute recovery / 7.09 

Started at the church on Redwood and ran on Centennial to Fairway by the golf course. Up Fairway and Colt and Fox Pointer onto the Village Parkway which ends and then turns into a few different trails. Went on the one heading North for a few minutes and then turned back. Came back trying to take the most straight shot to my house. Came out by my church and climbed most of the hill before getting to 50.

15 minute warm up and then 3 mile tempo, goal of 5:30 pace. First mile was 5:36. Pace started dropping farther away from the goal and so I made some new goals and just tried to hit those but I kept getting slower and more tired. Second mile in 5:46. Third mile I got .27 in 1:40, a culmination of a few things and I decided to call it good there. Sad that I didn't finish and wasn't on goal pace but it just wasn't my day. It'll come more and more, little by little. No rush, I got plenty of time. Cooldown about 15 minutes.
