Felt good other than the stomach for the most part. There were porta potties, but they hadn't been cleaned or restocked in a while. My left knee has been hurting slightly where it did in the spring, but it also feels like it did when I was initially coming back. I think it may just be an adjustment to the additional mileage. 6:46 average.

Breathing was a challenge today and my legs felt really heavy. I pretty much just ran 7 minute pace the whole time, but it was harder than I would have liked. Not sure why I felt so poor. I did get a kick out of how many people I saw running in long-sleeves though. I was on the warm side of comfortable in a short-sleeve.

After two miles of sluggish running to start I realized that the reason my legs have felt so bad the last couple of days is because my shoes are shot. 6:51 average, I hit the big hill in North Logan today, but that was one of the best parts of the run.

I slept quite well, but woke up feeling the effects of a pretty crazy weekend, especially Saturday where my nutrition was poor and I spent a good part of the day on my feet. I felt better once I got going, but it wasn't anything crazy. 6:53 average.

Ran with Josh Ward and Alex White. It was a great morning and way to start the day. It was nice to run in the light, with people to talk to, on dirt, as well as at a relaxed pace. 7:35 average. Wish I would have been able to do 10 with Josh, but I had to get to class.

Legs didn't feel great, especially during the first half of the run. This is most likely a result of not stretching or anything yesterday because I was out of the usual routine. 6:50 average. Felt my left knee for a brief moment around mile 7, but it went away.

I woke up feeling pretty tired, to say the least. My legs felt better than they have most of the week though. 6:59 average. Got in a couple miles on the dirt to mix things up as well. I need to try and get some more sleep tonight before attacking trails in the morning.

Ran the trails in Logan Canyon. It wasn't exactly what I had planned due to some "trail closures". I did get to explore a little and get to know the canyon a little better though. It was a beautiful morning where the run was good for more than just the body and mind, but also for the soul itself, especially being alone on the trails. Legs felt good.

I would have liked to get in at least another mile, but I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning. I also had a reading assignment I had to do for Fluid Mechanics as well, so that cut into my running time a little as well. I ran the snake route today and enjoyed the process. Aerobically things felt pretty good today, but the legs were sluggish. Most of the run was around 7 minute pace, but I tried to push on the downhills and during the last half mile. 6:54 average.

Ran with Erich, and he said he wanted to take it easy, but we ended up just rolling 6:30s once we got going. 6:42 average, our last couple miles were a bit slower after I had to stop to go to the bathroom and with the uphills as we climbed back home.

I could barely function when I woke up this morning. I'm amazed at how exhausted I am this semester. I'm almost as tired as when I was working full-time, other than my legs are actually recovering now. My nutrition yesterday certainly didn't help as I ended up having pizza at the Freshman Mentorship event for dinner. 6:55 average, but I just wasn't feeling it for the most part.
