The best pace is suicide pace Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Sat, 21 Oct 2017 02:28:04 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Oct 14, 2017 Run in Payson. Cold but the fresh air out here felt good :) Foot didn't hurt much too. 60 min//7.42 Sat, 14 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 13, 2017 Small fields loop. 21 min//2.66 mi Workout at Bloomington hills. Big thanks to the team for doing it early :) 10 min tempo went well with good packing. Then 3x2 min (8k, 5k, 8k pace), 4x1 min (5k, 3k, 5k, 3k pace). Everyone did so well at pushing around the right pace and switching leaders. We're ready to PACK like this at STATE!! 65 min//8.2 Fri, 13 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 12, 2017 Run out and back and a loop in neighborhood. Actually felt amazing, like to run alone sometimes it's a good time to think. 20 min//2.54 mi Chuck-a-wala!! I love this trail so much besides the rolling ankles part haha. Finished with a good group! 50 min//5.25 mi Thu, 12 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 11, 2017 For some reason we ran with the boys... don't ask me haha. 20 min//2.75 mi Did a loop through Middleton and back up past harts. Kinda tired and sore. Not sure if it's from the race or the run this morning haha. 45 min//5.3 mi Weights- El and I can officially bench 25's #BUFFSTUFF Wed, 11 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 10, 2017 Solid morning run, went the farthest ever! 20 min//2.6 Region at Sand Hollow Golf course! Mentally preparing definitely helped me have a better race than other ones. For sure going to mentally prepare more for state. There's good, better, best- today was a better race. It wasn't best because I didn't finish. I let the 2 dhills girls beat me and didn't put up my best fight. But man state is gonna have the best finish!! My positive was that I was progressive throughout the whole race and passed girls instead of getting passed. The cowbells helped push me and everyone cheered like a solid team does!! Also pr'd by 27 sec so that was cool, but there is more I need to do. Much needed scolding and getting put back in line talk by awesome coaches! Grateful for the lessons today so we can be ready for state!! 50 min//6.5 mi Tue, 10 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 09, 2017 Greensprings run, heel didn't hurt!! 50 min//5.75 mi Grass run with hair down. It felt good. 20 min//2.3 mi Mon, 09 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Oct 07, 2017 Did not roll my legs yesterday enough so that backfired :( It hurt to even walk straight. Flipped with Ashley to do 20 but we got lost and went an extra 10 haha. 30 min//3.3 mi Marathon aid station was supa fun! Plus I didn't get that sunburnt so yay!! Sat, 07 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 06, 2017 Solid paced run and plyos and GOOD yoga, 20 min//2.6 mi 15 min and 5 striders to warm. Then workout on grass loop! Honestly it was a lot harder than I thought. 4x2:45 repeats at 3k (5:40-50 min/mi) and 4x200s fast to finish. Stayed with Jess and Caroline, and even led for a little which was a confidence booster! It was awesome to have Gracie and Jaden with us too!! Excited for region next week our team is gonna beast n feast! 10 to cool. 65 min//7.5 mi Fri, 06 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 05, 2017 Weights + 15 min//1.75 mi 25 road/20 grass.

Just jess, El, ry, Al, and I today cause Caroline's sick:( 20 warm-up with 5 striders, 2x7:00 at 5k, then cool to finish. Really good packing! Switched leaders halfway for each and our finishes were faster. We hit our pace of about 6:15. 60 min//7.3 mi Wed, 04 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 03, 2017 Weights + 15 min//1.75 mi Pioneer Park run + 6 striders. 55 min//6.6 mi Great runs at Snow Canyon! Tue, 03 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 02, 2017 Nice long morning run Foremaster loop. Good pace and finished strong. 2x200s great. Weather feels good!! 75 min//9.25 mi Grass loop. Roberts is dignified. He taught me what that meant, which is respected :) 20 min//2.25 mi Mon, 02 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 30, 2017 Nice run to Sullivan with Ness. Ran into 2 guys that were training for the marathon, they're in the 70 and older marathoner club and are brothers! Can't get any more sibling goals than that haha. Picked it up last half and mostly last 5 to finish it. 55 min//6.75 mi Sat, 30 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 29, 2017 20 min//2.4 mi + plyos Ceder invite! A big reason why I didn't attack this race- I didn't mentally prepare. I know physically I can do it but mentally I need to be more confident and ready. Started off more behind Jess and Caroline cause hoping to have a faster finish but that didn't work. Ellie caught up in no time and I struggled to stay with her for a bit but then fell behind. Finished strong yet I know there should've been more. Team overall did amazing!! All the girls were pr'ing and it was good all around :) 55 min//7 mi Fri, 29 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 28, 2017 Weights and 13 run. Flipped early and went slower on the way back cause my heel was hurting again. 1.6 mi Nice run into Greensprings. Stuck in there with Rob's and Jess. Felt good but heel still hurt a lot. 6 striders. 50 min//6.4 Good thoughtful Thursday, thought of a cheetah like most would've haha. It was a cool visualization Thu, 28 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 27, 2017 Good pace for morning run. Plyos. 20 min//2.5 mi Awesome workout at dirt mile. Great weather, great run, great group :) 4x4:30 faster than 5k to start and finish, and slower than for the middle. Coach's reminders on high knees and quick steps made a big difference! Also every mile got faster as we went, now we know we can do that in our races. 60 min//7.5 mi Icing heel!! (That's for u Ry;)) Ps happy birthday to Gracie! She killed it today. And cool story she prayed for rain on her birthday and it did so happy day Wed, 27 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 26, 2017 Weights and shorter run cause my heel was hurting. Iced. 9 min//1 mi Run to Harmon's light and back. Sore quads and swollen heel but felt better later on as usual! Our finish was great. 4x200s faster than race pace. 55 min//7.2 mi Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 25, 2017 Long progression run to past Dixie rock! Had a hard start/middle with my heel. Trying not to limp so I don't injure my other foot haha. But it got better, and the weather was amazing. Started at about 8 min/mile pace and made our way down to finish at 6:40 min/mi. Lots of downhill the way back so that accounts for the huge gap. Great group too, had at least 8 girls with us today! 70 min//9.2 mi Fun muddy grass run, 20 min//2.2 mi Mon, 25 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 23, 2017 <p>Bob Firman race! Got off in a good position right with Jess and Caroline. I stuck with them for the first mile and a half then fell off a bit. The first lap was pretty good, then the real challenge came. The pain hit and I told myself it was good but didn&#39;t convince myself enough to push harder. I tried, but not enough. I was positive, but still had nagging negatives. When Ellie came up I pushed but didn&#39;t stay with her or Alli. Negatives/will overcome next race- didn&#39;t push up hill well, finished last 200, not 800. The positives were I pushed and passed after the beach and same with the downhill. I got into good position to start and stayed with Jess and Caroline longer! Also Pr&#39;d by 15 sec from last year&#39;s bob firman time, and 3 seconds for a 5k! Great but still I still have much more to do and our team does too! 50 min//6 mi</p> <p>Heel hurt really bad so my cool down was super chill, gonna need to get back into a routine of icing</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Loved this trip so so much and am gonna miss it! Learned that Roberts has some good 80s music, Alli has a sassy side haha, Jessica looks like Brad Pitt and so much more haha. PVXC RULES</p> Sat, 23 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 22, 2017 <p>Fun run at Murray park. I liked the mini bridges and sidewalks. 25 min//3 mi</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Ran through course and talked about our pickups during the race where people would struggle at. After the beach and down the hill! Like 6 striders to practice our start, kinda twisted my foot cause there&#39;s a million pot holes haha. 35 min//4 mi</p> Fri, 22 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 21, 2017 <p>Weights + 15 min/1.75 mi</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Bob Firman begins!! Drove to Sugarhouse Park to run the state course! Ran through it, then backwards to mold it into our brains. 8 striders afterwards, 57&nbsp;min//6.4 mi</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Awesome team talk about beating the old Pine View. Switched perspective around and sought out our team and individual weaknesses. Mine was the last half of my race I fall off and I start my kick-fast finish-too late. Team wise- getting in better position to start and running together!!</p> Thu, 21 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 20, 2017 <p>20 morning + plyos//2.5 mi</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Workout in Bloomington;&nbsp;5x4:00 (3x5k, 2x8k), with lower recovery. Some good packing in there especially at the beginning. It was a good workout for me, stuck in there with Jess and Caroline. It was awesome to see Brianna right with us on the LAST one!! 65 min//7.2&nbsp;mi</p> Wed, 20 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 19, 2017 <p>Weights + 15 min run//1.75 mi</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Good run into greensprings, we were at the highest point on the sidewalk and I look back expecting like 2 other girls top to be with us, but no there was like 5 or 6!! 58&nbsp;min//6.5&nbsp;mi</p> Tue, 19 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 18, 2017 <p>Long morning run with 2x2 miles tempo 75-60 sec slower than 5k pace. Parkway loop, the first one started off good but some girls fell off in the middle and regrouping for the end. The last one was super solid with about 7 girls for the whole time!! No falls today so that was a positive haha. Also solid finish. 80 min//9.8&nbsp;mi</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>20 min on the grass//2.4&nbsp;mi</p> Mon, 18 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 16, 2017 Solid run into hell's hole and back. Turned and ran towards the dump which was a cool route. Finished strong with Robert's, these finishes are gonna pay off in races I hope!! 60 min/7.4 mi Dope car wash, lots of tip tip hoorays haha Sat, 16 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 15, 2017 Run + plyos + yoga! Love seeing more and more girls come in the mornings!! 20 min//2.4 mi Dirt mile workout- 5 striders the 15 min from 5k+45sec to 5k pace (6 min/mi). Every 3 min we shifted and switched leaders. For me it was a lot better than the first, finished with the group and made it farther. Could've used a 5th girl at the end, but it will keep getting better! Awesome group for the majority! My favorite part was when Caroline led us in yelling NXN NXN to get the group to pack! 60 min//7.2 mi Fri, 15 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 14, 2017 Weights + plyos Ran just past Arcitc Circle and back for shorter run to even out with the workout yesterday. 8 striders after. 35 min//4.5 mi Thu, 14 Sep 2017 06:00:00
