Train Seshes For Quickness Amaze Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/ Fri, 20 Oct 2017 01:08:45 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Mon, Oct 02, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-02-2017.html <p>AM-- This morning was pretty dang rough... tried to eat a snack before practice early in the morning but I ultimately got insane heartburn and had fiery burps the whole time. Oof. Fiery burps are THE WORST. But overall it was a good run to start with. Last night was tough sleeping as well so I didn&#39;t get the 8/9 I need... #rip. Nevertheless,&nbsp;gettin ready to toast some noobs at snow canyon tomorrow. My positivity today was off the charts.</p> <p>60 mins&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-- After our legendary speeches we headed out to destroy the softball fields with our feet. The grass felt amazing but my brain currently does not&nbsp;(and here&#39;s why). We eventually started to do this game on the field where&nbsp;one person would close their eyes while the runner next to them would tell&nbsp;them where to go. I had my eyes closed and after a while I could run pretty fast while just listening to Dylan (keeping my eyes shut the ENTIRE time). The problem was that Nathan was doing it too and JD (thx noob) didn&#39;t steer him right. Our pathes crossed and&nbsp;our heads whacked together with insane force so that&nbsp;I fell on my butt. Moral of the story is this: trust excersices are good; however, don&#39;t trust idiots. Second moral of the story: better yet don&#39;t be an idiot.</p> <p>25 mins</p> Mon, 02 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 15, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-15-2017.html <p>AM-- 25 mins of amazin running like alwaes. My keester es soer. nom. Yoga es der baum. Stretching was nice and chill. Had an amazing effect on my muscles.&nbsp;Unlike Coache&#39;s str8 fire towards Miles and Jose. RIP Jose&#39;s crops. Too bad coach is right. 5th graders gonna be crying 2nite</p> <p>PM--- Workout of 15 mins of tempo (6:15 progressing towards 5:30)</p> <p>Coach literally blew my mind today. I had a little bit of a rough workout&nbsp;that mirrored my race on Wednesday. Like I fought hard and I&#39;m proud of what I did do, but like coach was saying, I needed to embrace running and be more of a part of it (rather than fighting against the essence). This seriously changed my perspective of how I viewed running just in a short amount of time. Mostly because I focus on the pain and how to battle it instead of accepting pain and being part of the amazingness of the sport. I was surprised when the first thing he said was that I needed to relax my form because running is a form and it&#39;s beautiful. Grateful for a ultra wise ultra runner for un coache. #harmonious. Can&#39;t ever forget why I actually love running. #blest #Jose&#39;sCrops2k17</p> Fri, 15 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 14, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-14-2017.html <p>AM-- Just weights because of legendary thunderstorms absolute</p> <p>PM-- 50 mins total including strides.

It was cool just to go adventure mode and try somewhere new for once haha. The hill workout was solid and a lot of the crew was there. Getting out of this running funk I&#39;ve been in by just doing my best and most importantly having a good time. It&#39;s been pretty easy for me to be hard on myself due to the fact that we get super intense and serious in some of our meetings. It&#39;s not a good place to be if you&#39;re stressed all the time so I&#39;m just gonna have fun while I still give my all.</p> <p>AM----80 mins w/ 100m uphills*8</p> <p>PM----25 mins w/ some grass</p> <p>13.5 mi. total</p> Mon, 11 Sep 2017 06:00:00
