Did 10 today at 6:36 average with Collin and LP today, split a 40:02 10k lol. Started from Legacy Park and made a loop including the dip. Started to die off a little bit at around mile 6, stopped to break at a park and lived up to the name Chuck. Felt refreshed after that and got back on pace and struggled a little to finish off the last mile but kept it very consistent the whole run. Mile 4-8 were all the exact same pace thanks to Coach Ryby, also shoutout to him again for not letting Collin and Zac leave us in the dust last 2 miles.

Decided to mile repeats today. Not a good idea, still not recovered from Saturday's run or the trail run yesterday. First repeat was a 6:02. Decided to just do recovery pace today, averaged 7:14 for the whole run. Excited for a number of reasons, have a meeting with a nutritionists today to finally figure out why I keep throwing up my breakfeast, in fact I'm typing this up in the waiting room. To top it off flight for Alaska leaves today a little after noon so no blog entries until the 16th, looking foward to getting some great runs in there.

1st full day in Alaska. Ran the Mendenhall loop trail, the trail was only 6.7 though so finished up the rest running there on back on the road to Juneau. It was absoultely incredible up there, felt eupohric trail running around the lake underneath the pines.

Motivation to run was a little low yesterday. Whoops. Ran the length of the Mendenhall Glacier trail and went slightly over, but oh well.

Yesterday was hike day, so that's my excuse for not running. Woke up at 4:30 and ran while the sun was rising, it was a little odd having sunrise at 5am. Ran from camp to Nugget Falls, had to bushwhack a little after making a wrong turn. Ended up being 9.2 there and back finished running around the meadow we camped in.

Next two days are scuba days so running is going to be too tiring. Motivation to run is really low, it's too cold in the mornings and the only clean running shorts left are BOAs, we'll see. Ran along Montana rd, a nice dirt road that went to nowhere, but the view along the way was awe-inspiring. Could see the from one end of Mendenhall glacier to the other as well Nugget Falls.

High+2 was pretty much the only reason I ran today. Could finally do the 6.15 trail to the top of the glacier. There was a lot more elevation gain on this trail than I thought there would be, ~800 feet of gain meant the pace was low on the way there but was flying down the trail on the way back. Attempted ice bathing at the glacier source but 35 is painfully cold and hypothermia is no fun.

Up-Chucker(<---- best name so far) today. Didn't throw up today, so fay the nutritionist and the gastroenterologist were right. Only logging this run so I can count the mileage on the shoes.

Finally got the 33s! Recovery today(7:14avg.) and Big-T had the genius idea to do abs/hips at the halfway point then run right to the spring and ice bath while hot after the run. Really good idea so shoutout to Big-T for that.

6 minute test on the Skyridge track today. New track feels amazing after running on the hard Lehi one for miles. Wasn't sure about where I should have ended up considering we haven't done a 6 minute test since Oct and well last time I barely did 4 laps lol. Decided to try and stay in between the twins and hold there started out in a bad spot at the back of group 1 for the first lap, did a couple surges to try to avoid getting gapped. Felt good the last 60 seconds pushing to catch Michael but he kept the distance. Ended up getting about 1955m, then barefoot miles around the Skyridge grounds, hopped a fence or two, made Thoms shoes get muddy and soaked. Good times.

First day back after St. George and immediately I could tell this wasn't going to be a good day. 8x600s today but it ended up being 4x600s thanks to a crippling sideache but I was hitting good times on the ones where I still felt good, 2:03 1:58 1:57 1:56. Cool downed while the boys were finishing their work out but somehow ended up with 1 mile extra, oh well. 2.6 barefoot at uh, "cooldown" pace, watched Jhoan attempt to tackle Collin, then Collin attempt to knock Jhoan down and a foot race between Collin and Brotato Chip. Went to Kneaders afterwards shout out to Collin for that idea.

Thought today was going to be high but I guess it was medium, oh well no complaints about that. Had the seniors there for practice which was nice. Ran with a big group for a while up 300w until it came to a T where Michael, Collin, and I split off towards Skyridge because Collin was thirsty. Then to the Murdock and made a loop from there connecting back on Rail Trail. Neither Collin nor I had work so we set out to find some short shorts, you can never have enough. Went to the outlets, no luck, then over to Draper to check Savers, natta. Googled nearby running stores and checked out Salt Lake Running Co, no short shorts but they did have The Grandma Knitted Ultra Boost, just not in my size😐. Then onto Wasatch Running and of course no short shorts, but they did have Zantes there and unfortunately I really liked them. PizzaPieCafe to finish off the quest for decent shorts.
