AM - Easy 3 this morning. Ran a little ways up Slate Canyon, out and back.

I'm doing the goose egg again this week, since training was so poor last week, so every day I don't run, it's a $10 goose egg to the blog. $10 isn't much, but it'll do the trick.

PM - Added another 5 this evening, 35:17 total time.

AM - 3 easy miles, same route. 22:20 today. The left lower shin is giving me some pain, I need to get some ice on it.

I went and watched the UVU meet on Friday, one of my good friends was running. It's got me daydreaming about racing again. I had forgotten how much I miss cross country, I wished I could be running. Ah well, track will come fast enough, I suppose. But hopefully when I'm out of college and moved away there will be cross meets I can get into.

PM - Added 6 more miles in Provo Canyon, 42:39 total time. I need to run up there more often, it's beautiful.

Just one run today, so I headed up the Provo Canyon again. It's beautiful again today. I took things easier than yesterday, total time of 58:45.

AM - Woke up with the alarm this morning and laid around in bed, my groggy morning self thinking I was crazy for wanting to forgo sleep for a run.

I managed to crawl out of bed and get my running clothes on, then sat around contemplating how much I hate mornings. Finally I got myself out of bed and did the 5 mile Slate Canyon loop.... turns out it wasn't so bad. I left my watch at home and took it easy - sometimes that's what it takes to not focus on pace. I figure I ran between 7:30 and 7:45 pace, and things felt pretty good. Slapped some ice on my shin afterwards; it's probably time to get a new pair of shoes.

PM - Added 3 easy miles on the Canyon trail. The shin felt better, not perfect, but better. I iced some more tonight.

I'm excited about ramping up the miles again. This week has been kind of a sudden increase, but sometimes that's what I have to do to get myself going again. I look forward to racing again.

Had a midterm this morning and some other things in the evening, only ended up with 3 measly miles. And my watch died in the middle so I didn't even see what my time was.

Ran up to the Bonneville Shoreline trail for a 9.5 mile loop. Total time about 1:14:30. Took it pretty easy on the hills, I don't think I'll run this trail many more times. I enjoy the hills, but the trail beats up my legs a little bit.
