Alli's running blog Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Thu, 20 Jul 2017 12:48:26 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Wed, Jul 12, 2017 <p>Went to practice this morning, ran 25 minutes out on tortoise trail then ran 5 when I got back. My hamstrings been bugging me a lot, I thought it was just tight but I&#39;m afraid it might be a bit pulled. Then we drove up to snowbird &amp; chilling in a freaking nice lodge currently. #blessed to be getting some mountain miles this week</p> <p>5.54 km 8:40(?) avg</p> Wed, 12 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 10, 2017 <p>Loop. Got off work about 10ish,&nbsp;it was still blazing though. It felt like one of the harder runs since I&#39;ve started again. My body&#39;s been super unhealthy &amp; I wasn&#39;t sure if it was lack of water/sleep or something more serious so I&#39;ve been getting to bed at a reasonable hour &amp; drinking tons of water &amp; it seems to be helping a bit, so that&#39;s very nice.</p> <p>3.9 km 8:30 avg</p> Mon, 10 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 08, 2017 <p>Just a quick one before I went to gunlock. Same loop, 20 minutes. Can feel myself getting more in shape but still have a longggg way to go. I like when I can get out early though.&nbsp;</p> <p>4.03 km 8:09 avg</p> Sat, 08 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 06, 2017 <p>20 minutes. My body &amp; mind are struggling all around lately,&nbsp;but it was alright getting out there after taking yesterday off. Same loop as usual. It was hot. I can&#39;t wait til next week when I&#39;m in the mountains &amp; can run in nice temperatures</p> <p>3.79 km 8:30 avg</p> Thu, 06 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 04, 2017 <p>Got off&nbsp;work early because of the 4th of July (YAY BEST HOLIDAY IS TODAY!) so I decided to take my dog out to the desert by mi casa. She was very well behaved &amp; stuck to the trail like I asked her to. Needs to learn a little trail etiquette called not stopping in the middle of the trail to smell things, though, but other than that she was wonderful. It makes me sad I can pretty much outrun her, she&#39;s getting old...): anyway, 25 minutes nice &amp; easy. They&#39;re tearing up the desert something awful. The entrance to get to the reserve isn&#39;t even there anymore, sad.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 04 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 03, 2017 <p>Work til 11:30 then I knew I had to get out on a run even though I reallllly didn&#39;t want to because it was so hot. Same loop. This one was my fastest one &amp; the goal was to start out slower, gradually work my way to a decent pace then keep that pace the entire run rather than slowing down at the end. I worked on my form a lot &amp; I think that helped sooo much. Completely awful while I was doing it, but I&#39;m glad I ran.</p> <p>3.6 km 8:27 avg</p> Mon, 03 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 01, 2017 <p>Another 20 minutes. I can already feel my fitness returning, which is completely great because of how far away it seemed yesterday. Same loop but it was hotter than yesterday because I got out an hour later due to getting home at 1:30 from the Gunlock Rodeo last night. What a night. I&#39;m gonna be a cowgirl as soon as I get to Ephraim, mark my words</p> <p>3.86 km 8:30 avg</p> Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 30, 2017 <p>We got off work early so I went running about 9ish. It was extremely rough, I went about 20 min &amp; just did a loop up by my house. As I was laying in bed last night I started thinking about running &amp;&nbsp;I&#39;m gonna start running everyday when I get off work, even when it&#39;s 11 o&#39;clock &amp; 100&deg; outside. Hopefully I can stick with this through the first 2 weeks because getting back into shape is the worst part. Anyway, the run was fine just tiring. I like running on my own but it&#39;s gonna get boring.</p> <p>3.8 km 8:40 avg</p> Fri, 30 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 27, 2017 <p>30 minutes with the team. Probably my last time going to practice this summer, kinda struggling with it. Half on the grass half on the road. Nice times with good friends</p> Tue, 27 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 20, 2017 <p>Tuesday run heheh. I had to start running again cause I&#39;m getting fat.&nbsp;Half on road half on grass. I felt pretty good running on the road but started&nbsp;struggling on the grass. Striders after. Wish I wasn&#39;t out of shape, also wish I could run everyday before noon &amp; 110&deg; temps, but alas. Nice run though, it&#39;s good to see everybody again every once in a while</p> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 06:00:00
