Went dove hunting in the morning so didn't get out the door until around 8 in the morning. It was a good effort but felt pretty relaxed at the same time. My internal clock felt really off, but I would guess it was around a 7 minute mile pace. I felt really strong though. The last half mile I pushed the pace some and while I didn't feel like I had a lot of top end speed, I felt like I could have kept pushing that pace for a while.

Also did some core and realized I need to do a lot more of that. I haven't really done any since I've been up in Logan.

Ran 5 miles this evening. My dinner wasn't quite digested so my stomach was a little uncomfortable and I had the burps the second half of my run. The first half of my run I was moving at a pretty decent pace, 6:48 average, and I was really relaxed and my legs felt great. My breathing felt harder than it should have though. On the way back I tried to just relax and get through the run. I really let the downhills carry me. I finished in 32:43, 6:32 average for the whole run, and 6:16 average coming back. Not too bad all things considering.

I have been feeling a little under the weather all evening with my throat hurting a tiny bit. I had more mucus than normal while running as well. I feel this may be the effects of stress.

Ran four miles with Tom, even though I probably shouldn't have even ran today because of my foot and the cold. We took the first half mile really slow, but the rest of the run we were really consistent in just under 6:30 pace. It honestly felt like a good pace. I wasn't getting enough oxygen just because of my illness, but I'm happy with the effort. My foot hurt more on the downhill and when I tried to kick, which makes me think it may be tendonitis at the joint.

Took today really easy as I want to be healthy. Spent 35 minutes on the bike, with 15 minutes in the middle of barefoot jogging on some grass. Everything felt fine, and I think my foot will be okay. There's still some pain when I bend the toe though.

Todays run was just one to disconnect and relieve some stress. No watch or anything. Going out my quads and glutes were a bit tired, probably from biking, and my breathing was off, which I expected with being sick. Coming back I had some major gastrointestinal pains, and I wanted to be careful on the downhill so the last half mile was really slow.

Woke up and still wasn't feeling one-hundred percent, and I didn't want to run on my own unless it was a quality hour long run, so I did some strength work instead.
