Also, this run today was pretty tiring not gonna lie. When we have just normal runs I almost get bored haha. I like pickups,&nbsp;hills, and that kinda stuff. I still love to run tho.</p> <p>60 mins total</p> Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 20, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2017.html <p>A little tired today but not too bad! Twas a great time at kids club even though it was blazing.</p> <p>20 mins road&nbsp;/ 25&nbsp;mins grass (including striders*8)</p> <p>6.2 mi total</p> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 19, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-19-2017.html <p>I wish I got more sleep last night... I was battling cockroaches&nbsp;and there was some freaky deaky crap going on outside my window&nbsp;around 10:00</p> <p>At any rate, this run was stellar! I had a blast even though I got my butt whooped. Still, I had lots of juice this run. It felt great because even though my legs were getting tired, I could always find more energy to keep up just fine. I felt way better after I puked after Hell Hole (yeah I know it&#39;s gross) and after that&nbsp;I didn&#39;t have to worry about anything other than running. This was awesome cause usually I have some kind of gut problem.</p> <p>75 mins total&nbsp; &nbsp;w/pickups--- &nbsp;2*( 1min + 1min + 2min )</p> Mon, 19 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 17, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-17-2017.html <p>Yuuuup. I&#39;m dead right now. Grateful for Youth Conference but so glad I&#39;m home. This way I can relax and recover. Also, went and partied like an animal last night at the dance. No one went as hard as me. No one.</p> <p>In the morning Logan, Ethan Ashby, and myself took off on a road. We didn&#39;t realize till about a mile in that the whole&nbsp;thing was a gradual&nbsp;uphill. I&#39;m not complaining about it but my calves were shot after mile 2 haha. It&#39;s cool I&nbsp;probs needed it anyway.&nbsp;</p> <p>50 mins at 2 mins slower than 5k pace</p> <p>Also, I&#39;m going to burn my old running shoes because the mileage for this&nbsp;run was 6.66</p> Sat, 17 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 16, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-16-2017.html <p>Our XC crew up at snow college has to wake up at 5:45 to get ready and go running at 6. This is a problem since&nbsp;you don&#39;t get back to your dorm until around midnight. But hey it&#39;s cool who needs sleep.</p> <p>Had to wear some old bogus running shoes because I forgot most of my stuff.</p> <p>60 mins total @ 2 mins slower than 5k pace&nbsp; &nbsp;8 miles</p> Fri, 16 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 15, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-15-2017.html <p>Woke up eaarrrrrrly and took off on a long solo run. This one was kind of difficult at the beginning because my stomach was really upset. I just didn&#39;t have enough water the night before and I think I was really hungry. But after the 25 min mark I got my rear in gear and did my pickups well. I had to practice form hard though because I was pretty pooped towards the end.</p> <p>70&nbsp;mins total w/ 2*(1min + 1min + 2min) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;5 mins recov. in between sets.</p> <p>Got some rest on the way to youth conference</p> Thu, 15 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 14, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-14-2017.html <p>Had a cewl run up towards whatever trail (i get the all mixed up. I think it&#39;s Grapevine...?). Anyways, during this run I realized that this season&#39;s gonna take some guts for&nbsp;me to reach my goals (I wouldn&#39;t want it any other way). And honestly I&#39;m stoked to see how&nbsp;my/everyone&#39;s hard work will pay off. It&#39;ll be legendary.</p> <p>45 mins total.</p> <p>Also, I never realized how amazing&nbsp;stretching is.</p> Wed, 14 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 13, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-13-2017.html <p>Road/Grass run today and I battled sprinklers like a champ. Also, never cut a single corner cause I&#39;m not a noob. (Also, distance might be a little shabby because I&#39;m in the process of recovering my lost watch)</p> <p>40 mins including striders. (20 road/20 grass)</p> <p>Also, Kids Club was a riot. Plus weights in the afternoon and this day was the bomb.</p> Tue, 13 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 12, 2017 http://XCmikey.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-12-2017.html <p>Hahaha back at it again fools! I&#39;m back from the beach and ready to kick trash. Speaking of trash kicking, today&#39;s run was epic. I have to admit, I was a little edgy about running longer minutes. But honestly it was no porblehm. Our dirt mile tempo thingy went really well and there were some exciting vibes</p> <p>20 mins warm, 20-ish mins tempo, 20 mins finish time</p> Mon, 12 Jun 2017 06:00:00
