Alli's running blog Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Wed, 22 Nov 2017 07:31:53 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Nov 18, 2017 <p>Woke up &amp; was debating whether I wanted to lift or run, that&#39;s usually not even a debate, but today I chose running. I mostly just went down main but when I would&#39;ve been leaving town&nbsp;I followed the street up a block then flipped around &amp; went back, up center, &amp; to my home. The trees were snowing but that was it. I had to carefully maneuver the ice as well. It was a hard run but I&#39;m glad I did it</p> Sat, 18 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 17, 2017 <p>i went to the gym to lift &amp; when I was leaving I was debating running on the treadmill but I went in there &amp; there was&nbsp;someone else in there &amp; I panicked &amp; left so I was like, well guess I won&#39;t run today. But on my way back home it was snowing &amp; then I got home &amp; it started snowing harder &amp; I decided I definitely wanted to run in the snow. I did a loop around campus then added on a little because it wasn&#39;t very far. Ending with 3 miles. I got a lot of comments like &quot;are you crazy or committed&quot; by passerby which was kind of fun. &amp; I ran into my good friend kaiden which was cute. It&#39;s runs like these that make me love running</p> Fri, 17 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 11, 2017 <p>I&#39;m in cedar!!!! Staying with jos so we went for a run, she&#39;s injured &amp; she was still killing me hahahah. Yay for friends</p> Sat, 11 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 09, 2017 <p>Coach didn&#39;t show hahahaaaa so everyone left but me &amp; kam decided we&#39;d do a workout. We both did 15 minute warm ups before workouts in hs so we were like &quot;yeah let&#39;s go 15 min&quot; which&nbsp;lollll because that&#39;s like as much as we run regularly hahahah so by the end of the warm up we were already kinda tired. Nevertheless, we did 4x400s. We said we&#39;d go for 1:30 &amp; work our way down&nbsp;from there. Our first one was a 1:32, then 1:26 (I led this one) then another 1:26 (she led) then a 1:28. We were both pretty beat by the end. I never thought I&#39;d see the day when 4x400s would take me down hahahah yikes then 2 laps cool down</p> <p>Planning on lifting after class today</p> Thu, 09 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 07, 2017 <p>Slow&nbsp;mile, fast mile, recovery mile. Coach wanted us to run a mile then beat our time on our second mile (almost like mile repeats but wayyyy less intense) the only requirement was we had to beat our time,&nbsp;so we took the first mile nice &amp; slow. Kam &amp; jaycie made me run in back cause I kept pushing the pace on accident. Then the second mile felt really good &amp; fast. Then the third mile me &amp; kam&nbsp;just ran around campus to add a little. Then we went &amp; lifted.</p> Tue, 07 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 06, 2017 <p>Day 1 of trying to run every day heh. I went out on a trail but did it backwards to the way I usually do it, since it&#39;s an 8 mile loop I was able to do a completely different section of it than I usually do. The way out was relatively hard, the way back was easier. I just thought about life &amp; also contemplated what my first move would be if I were to get hit by a car. It was an interesting self-discussion. Also I dreaded my purple hair. So I now have purple dreads. I am so pleased with them.</p> Mon, 06 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 04, 2017 <p>I woke up early to run before I headed up north. I went out on the loop with the cliff but turned right before the cliff so just made it an out &amp; back. It was relatively tough. I want to get back into the habit of running every day again. I&#39;ve been lifting every day but I need to run too &amp; get back in shape. Then I went up north &amp; hung with my mom, sister, &amp; grandma, fun fun</p> Sat, 04 Nov 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 31, 2017 <p>I keep FORGETTING to blog. Today I had class &amp; we just ran a mile.5 which surprisingly (let&#39;s talk about the word surprise for a second. The first r is completely useless &amp; that&#39;s been on my mind a lot lately) enough&nbsp;was quite difficult for all 3 of us, I&#39;m not sure why. We averaged like 8 min pace but for so short that should be easy. Then we went &amp; got swoll in the weight room. Me &amp; this boy that I always see in there are kind of in love so maybe tomorrow we&#39;ll talk or something</p> Tue, 31 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 24, 2017 <p>Running class!!! 20 minutes see how many laps you can get. It was good reacquainting with kamryn after fall break. Turns out she was at state too &amp; im so mad I didn&#39;t text her cause I was gonna. Anyway, nice &amp; easy run. I felt good but decently tired. Just enough to know we were doing well. Then we went &amp; lifted. That was hard too. Fall break did me in. Also all my sweat was purple HAHAH I wasn&#39;t just a big purple mess but it&#39;s fine cause my hair looks dope af.</p> <p>Now morgan wants to go run bleachers so we&#39;re gonna go do that. Should be good &amp; real hard tbh ahahahha&nbsp;</p> Tue, 24 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 23, 2017 <p>i justgot back from Florida, so yay!! But I finally decided that&#39;s after skipping a whole week I should get another run in. I started out &amp; ran into josh farish!! So we ran together but he kept a pretty quick pace so I was spent way earlier. We did a loop just talking &amp; it was fun. Then I went home &amp; dyed my hair purple hehehehe next come the dreads</p> Mon, 23 Oct 2017 06:00:00
