AM: Met up with my boy Ben Chadburn and did a hospital loop with him. Left him and added on some more around the south Ogden neighborhoods.

PM: Not sure how far. Forgot my watch. Upper, dropped down by the bathrooms, pipe. Not a great day.

2 sets 600,400,600,400,600,200 on the grass field. The goal for 6's was 1:51, 4's and 2 - 6:40 pace. 2 minutes rest in between sets. Started off great and then in the second set it got harder and harder for me to hit pace on the 4's and I wasn't recovering for the 6. The last 6 of the second set was slow. 2 min break. Then everybody had either 1,2, or 3 more but instead of jogging a 400 we got 90 seconds rest. Coach told me I had one more but after I hit the pace I told him I could do a second one because we were getting standing rest and my body was recovering. Ran one more and threw in a little kick 1:47.

PM: Power run at 21st street pond. Love that place. 1 lap is a little over a mile so we do 4 miles and then a little extra to get back to the starting line where the water is. 90 sec rest. Then finish to 7 miles for me, 8 for the top group. The goal for the first 4.3 was 5:25 and we were a couple seconds faster than that. I felt soooo good. And it felt like everybody else in group B did too cuz we seemed really smooth. It felt like my heart rate wasn’t even elevated and the only thing that I was working was my legs. Took the quick break. Second set pace was see what you can do. I stayed at the same average which was good. Not only was it a good workout that helped build fitness and confidence and help down the road, but it was fun. And you gotta have fun. 


AM: 3.8 on Pipe. Some of it with Ben and some with Jacob.

North Ogden Canal Trail. The technical single track was as bad as people said it was, but then everything else was great.
