Today was a beast run! Went out to the middle of nowhere on the arizona strip and decided to take up a dirt road. It was called sunshine trailhead or something like that but due to rain and the time of day I started it was actually pretty cold and dark ); It was super muddy but I found a sick gypsum mine and a wierd tunnel/hole in the side of the hill. I'm positive we ran this trail once before actually in the summer (but last time I didn't find treasure). Anyways I had a tough week because I jumped right back in after being sick. But despite being tired and having sore legs, running has been really fun lately! It's always super rewarding now instead of just trying to survive haha. #perspectiveiskey

PM- 65 mins

So this is another new blog and I hope it actually works this time around.

PM-- Furthest long run yet of track season! pickups 1-2-1-3-1-3 w/ 5 min recovery in between.

This run was super fun and went by a lot faster than expected. Towards the end I was getting pretty tired and my ankle/knees started hurting some but hey I'm comfortable with uncomfort. However I do need to roll, stretch, and ice my ankle because contrary to common belief I am only human. Anyways all of us level 4's (hehe I can say that now that's so cool) crushed it and had fun. (Except for when we waited for Jose to use the bathroom and my legs turned to rock. Only bad part)

PM-- Had the usual pace workout today except with 5*1min cv's instead of 2*(5*30secs). Beast & Feast was before as well.

Today I still felt somewhat sluggish but I met the paces easily. When our dope supergroup formed we didn't miss a single distance (jk maybe 2 but barely off). We all took turns leading and had some epic camaraderie. Stuff of legends.

Today I'm especially grateful for the support I recieved from my team after my family, my house, and my cow was shamed during 6th period. #WWBD. Also, I seriously need to fix my watch and stop copying Colton's blog.

PM-- phew this workout whooped my butt. This has definately been a crazy week on my legs. But as my good friend Xander once said,"pain is only weakness leaving the body to make it stronger". I had to focus on my form a lot while I was tired but I think I zoned out sometimes. But heck my legs are gonna be so shredded it won't even be funny.

50-60 mins ish? I still don't have my watch yet

AM-- Turkey Farm Road w/ neg split. Went solo on this one and it was my hardest run of the week. At the start of my run my hands went numb (because I'm too stubborn to pack gloves and a jacket with me for some reason smh). Overall I think I did well and had good form. Idk how quality my negative split/entire run was but I figured as long as I was pushing hard and hurting I must be doing an ok job.

PM-- epic long run with 2*5min ez tempo, 10min tempo, and 5min thresh.

12 mi 85 mins

I had so fun on this run and it totally flew by. I'm absolutely going to destroy the track this season and long beautiful runs like these get me pumped up to compete. My shins hurt somewhat but I just gotta keep takin care of them. Sure wish our front group was bigger tho...

Today I'm grateful for the opportunity to run and my improvement over the years.

Also, here's some tantallizing and seemingly useless knowledge I learned today: the phrase, "eschew obfuscation" literally means to avoid confusion. Ironic, huh?
