Tuesday morning workout
5.7 easy miles on the trails. Now I just want to go back to sleep, but there is studying to be done and a test to be taken later today. 😬
1 mile warmup, 800 track (3:10), 800 grass (3:33), 800 track (3:17), 400 (1:19), 1 mile @ race pace (6:51)
Didn’t get to cool down because I had to go to my 8 a.m. class. And then we had 20 minutes of biking and 40 minutes of strength training in the afternoon :)
Because national coffee day is actually necessary everyday when you’re up by 6 am everyday.P.s. I’m aware of how milked down this is! Darn school coffee place.
10 mile long runs on Sundays are a good way to clear the mind/get me ready to go to bed since I did it in the afternoon.
Really want to get back to being a more dedicated runner. I’ve been so caught up in other things in my life (i.e. boyfriend and school) that I’ve been neglecting my training. Even though I’m most likely red shirting this season I still want to work hard and see improvements. Buckling down starting today.
I don’t know what shall come of my blog. I’m not feeling very inspired to post about my life to thousands of people at the moment. I’m just sorta living it right now and enjoying every crazy busy second of it.

One of my favorite quotes to date, and the last thing I recite before the gun. (via never-stoprunning)
Ran a “not super official” race 5k today and am surprisingly pleased. Not the fastest time but coming off a hamstring injury I can only be pleased with this. Looking forward to smashing this in 2 weeks on our home course when it’s an actual race and it’s in the morning when it’s cold rather than 80 degrees.
