AM: Waterfall Canyon - Upper - Enve loop.  

PM: Reverse Upper followed by some barefoot running on the turf and strides. The barefoot running felt great until after I realized I did too much and maybe the turf was too hot and my left foot had a nasty blister.

Cut down at Beus. Went 2k,mile,1200,800,800,800,400,400. Paces got faster each time you dropped the distance and it wasn't an easy workout but pretty much everybody did very well. It started pouring right as we finished so everybody got a lil soaked

Reverse Upper. Went to my first Wednesday night message. My hamstrings, especially the right, were super tight.

BYU Autumn Classic. Even tho this was a down week in mileage as we are preparing for a strong training block these next three weeks leading up to Notre Dame, my legs had felt heavy all week. Friday, Saturday, and Monday took a toll on them. And then I went out too hard the first mile and paid the price for it. Shortly after the first mile I knew it was gonna be long day. I ended up averaging about the same mile pace that I wanted going into it, but I wasn’t able to stay with the other Weber guys and faded most of the race. Now my focus turns to these next couple weeks and getting some good workouts.
