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

Am-8 easy miles. Well the trail was pretty tough, but it wasn't fast. 

PM-5 easy miles with Doc.  I talked to Coach about mileage, and I'll be taking this week easy for the most part and will jump into it hard next week.

Woke up early and ran up the canyon.  I felt a bit sluggish from the drive back home yesterday, especially because I hit some bad traffic so it took really long.

I wasn't feeling great so I decided to put my tempo off and do my long run today. We were in Montana visiting family, and I decided to start on a trail.  This trail got pretty rocky and wasn't very good for a long run, so after nearly 2 miles I found the road and ran on it. For the next 10.6 miles or so, I kept the pace pretty steady.  During the first 5 I was running with the wind at my back, so it was around 5:30s-40s, the next 5 were around 5:45-59, and I think my average was about 5:47.  My legs felt good, but I had a sore throat and a cough for most of the run.

10 easy miles.  I wasn't feeling the greatest.  It could be from all the food I ate yesterday, although I didn't feel like I overate. It could be the cough I've had a few days.

AM-went to a track near the high school, but it was pretty rugged and icy.  I started jogging a lap, and I just wasn't feeling it at all, so I did 5 miles on a treadmill at the hotel at about 5:55 pace and decided I'll try to run hard tonight.

PM-Ran around the block twice.  I used my dad's GPS watch because I know it is just a bit over a mile long each time around.  4:57 first mile, 4:49 second mile.  It was late and I just wasn't there.  I could've done more, but I'm planning on hitting it pretty hard next week, so I called it good. Cough didn't help much either.
