Did some exploring in some efforts to find more soft surfaces to run on. It wasn't completely successful, but it was a fun way to mix things up. I did see three different bucks right in the middle of North Logan though, so that was pretty fun. I didn't feel my foot bother me, which is good news. Hopefully this down week will knock out those aches and what not. 6:46 average

Took it easy today, but it felt kind of hard aerobically. Hit up the Lundstrom Park trail and actually ran that twice so that I could have more soft surface time. During the last mile my left toes almost felt like there were small needles in them, but it wasn't the normal pain, which was kind of weird, but still nothing major. 8 miles feels like an extremely short run.. 6:52 average.

Took longer than I wanted to get out the door. Last night my foot was hurting, but not in the place it used to be. I iced it and slept in wool socks to get some added warmth and compression. My foot felt extremely good when I woke up. I was for some reason nervous throughout the whole run, but I didn't feel my foot at all. Nice and slow, 6:56 average. It's crazy that an 8 mile run now feels short. I've still been plenty tired this week, even though my mileage is down. Either way, this week will hopefully be a good break for the mind and hopefully get rid of the tendonitis for good.

It was snowing for basically the whole run, but that helped me to just relax and enjoy the run. During the first mile my left foot went in a crack in the road and it put some pressure where I've been trying to heal, and that made me a bit paranoid. It felt fine for the most part though. There was some very minor pain around 6 miles, but nothing like I was experiencing in previous weeks. 6:58 average.

It was actually cold this morning for the first time in a while. That slowed my first mile down quite a bit. Hit up the Lundstrom Park trail twice and then just kind of ran around to get the distance. Still haven't had any major pain in my foot, which is good. Hopefully come Monday I'll be feeling 100% and be able to grind things out. 6:49 average. It felt good to run a little faster today.

I was really hopeful that I would feel 100 percent today, and I was really excited to have a solid run. I ran the Hyde Park Canal trail because I thought the softer surface would be good, but in all reality, it's pretty uneven and probably put a good amount of stress on my foot. I also think (and based on what I've read) the uphill running influences it as well. I honestly felt good until about 11 miles, when I was running on the USU cross country course. I obviously just haven't been running far enough or hard enough to aggravate it. I'm hoping a couple days off and then some easy running will get rid of it. 6:29 average.
