I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

AM-4 easy miles with Talem. 

PM-11 miles. Warm up, then 5 mile tempo. Not sure on all our mile splits, but we were something like 4:57 for the first and then 3 and 4 were 4:45ish. I wasn’t too far behind the front group. I ran 24:13 overall, so I’m pretty happy about it. Cool down then weights, then some studying. Lots of studying.

I was pretty tired from yesterday. I did a lot of homework, probably more than I’ve ever dated in a single day. Today I was just feeling worn out, so the 8.5 easy miles were nice. Strides afterward.

Looks like winter finally decided to come. Today was pretty wet and snowy. I felt super cold and just not into it. During the run Adam got covered by snow when a snow plow came by on the way back, but he kept a good attitude. About half the team did the run pretty quick. I was with the other half that took it slower.
