Mostly with Kramer and Adam wood. I felt pretty tired, so I stopped just after 19 instead of going the full 20.</p> Sat, 21 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 20, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-20-2019.html <p>AM-5.2 easy miles with Michael.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-10.1 miles with Kramer and Clayson. We ran up to the&nbsp;Bonneville Shoreline trail and then down a nice dirt road in the foothills.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 20 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 19, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-19-2019.html <p>AM-5.2 miles with Jake, Talem, and Michael.</p> <p>PM-Michigan today. It was hot and windy, but I think Coach gave us more rest than usual, so it wasn&rsquo;t terrible. Went 4:28(track), 4:50(grass), 3:19(t), 4:48(g), 2:11(t), 4:46(g), 60(t), 4:42(g). I felt pretty good after the first grass mile. Lots of switching of who was leading between Jared, Milly, and Clayton. All of them were coming off hard Tuesday workouts and/or races from the weekend, so I led a bit more than usual. Jared always seemed to be holding back, but I guess that&rsquo;s what you can do when you were 6th in the last Olympic Games.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 19 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 18, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-18-2019.html <p>AM-9.7 miles about. Ran from my apartment, saw Luke just after halfway and ran with him to the fieldhouse.</p> <p>PM-8 miles with strides. Felt pretty good for the first 7, then some pain from a blister/callus. It&rsquo;s all good though.</p> Wed, 18 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 17, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-17-2019.html <p>AM-6 miles with Josh, Jake, and Michael.</p> <p>PM-hobble creek. Progressive run up a canyon that&rsquo;s around 8.3 miles. Kramer and I ran it in 44:51, which is quite a bit quicker than I&rsquo;ve ever run, so it was a great workout.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 17 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 16, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-16-2019.html <p>AM-6.2 easy miles with Jake and Michael.</p> <p>PM-13.6 miles with strides. Coach follows us on a sketchy bike that didn&rsquo;t have brakes, but he was fine.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 16 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 14, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-14-2019.html <p>AM-race:&nbsp; 2.5 mile warm up, then some strides.&nbsp; Warmed up a bit earlier than my liking, but it was alright.&nbsp; I felt better than yesterday; however, still a bit stiff.&nbsp; I got a great start, for me atleast, and didn&#39;t worry about any trouble.&nbsp; The pace felt really quick after 200m, and it didn&#39;t really slow until about 600m.&nbsp; I slowed down a bit, and just let the front guys go, before slowly catching up.&nbsp; I took the lead with JQ at the start of the first 2km loop.&nbsp; The course had a 1km loop, then 3x2k loops.&nbsp; The guys behind me said that they heard they were sub-4:40 at the mile mark, and so JQ and myself were likely around 4:35.&nbsp; After a bit, JQ fell off, then Jacklin ran by me for the next loop plus a little more.&nbsp; On the 2nd 2k loop, Garrett Marsin got a bit ahead of me, and shared some of the work.&nbsp; He was going pretty quick, but then he asked me if that was our last loop, and I told him we had one more.&nbsp; He wasn&#39;t with us to run the course yesterday, so he wasn&#39;t sure about the course.&nbsp; At the end of that loop, he was slowing.&nbsp; I decided to speed up here and see what I could run the last 2k in.&nbsp; I wasn&#39;t all out, but I did speed it up.&nbsp; 4 mile cool down after.&nbsp; This meet was fun because there were a lot of friends and family that came to support too.&nbsp; I&#39;m not sure how long the course actually was, as I&#39;ve heard both 7km and 7.5 km.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-6 miles around k park.</p> Sat, 14 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 13, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-13-2019.html <p>AM-4.9</p> <p>PM-just over 5 and then strides.</p> Fri, 13 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 12, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-12-2019.html <p>AM-5.2 with Michael and Jake.</p> <p>PM-11.3 with strides. Felt a bit tired on the strides, but it was a great run.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 12 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 11, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-11-2019.html <p>AM-not 100% sure on this mileage, but it will be fine. 2x(mile, 1200, 800) with 400-600m jog recovery between.&nbsp; Mile and 1200 were on the wet grass, 800s were on the track to check the relative effort.&nbsp; Ran 4:46, 3:32, 2:10, 4:44, 3:29, 2:08.&nbsp; Matt and Talem were there too, we all seem to have classes during practice on Wednesdays.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-6.2 miles on my own. Felt tired.</p> Wed, 11 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 10, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-10-2019.html <p>AM-6.2 miles. Beautiful lightning at 5:45AM. Then the rain came and it wasn&rsquo;t as great.</p> <p>PM-11.1 miles with strides at the end.</p> Tue, 10 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 09, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-09-2019.html <p>AM-10k</p> <p>PM-12x1000m at tempo effort with 60 sec rest. Started around 3:01, then Coach had me slow it down to 3:06 for a few. Last four were 3:01, 3:01, 2:53, 2:54. Felt good. Lots to work on for this season personally though.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 09 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 07, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-07-2019.html <p>Long run.&nbsp; 20 miles at Murdock, ran the majority of the run with Weaver and Milly, due to having to run farther.&nbsp; Milly was going 25 and had a pickup to run, but he ran with whole 20 with me before continuing on his own.&nbsp; At 20 miles, I&#39;m pretty beat, I don&#39;t know if I could run the next 5 with a tempo at the end.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Sat, 07 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 06, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-06-2019.html <p>AM-10.4 miles with Weaver, Clayton, and Machlin.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-5 miles and then strides on the track. Didn&#39;t feel super smooth early on, but after a few I felt better.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 06 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 05, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-05-2019.html <p>AM-5.3 easy miles with Josh, Michael, and Jake.</p> <p>PM-2x2 loop, 1x1 loop&nbsp;at tempo effort at K park. It was HOT, so coach had us run this instead of a straight tempo on lake loop. Paces we&rsquo;re about 4:58 for the 1.9 milers, and 4:37 for the last one. Weights after.</p> Thu, 05 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 04, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-04-2019.html <p>AM-9.7 with Josh, Jared and Micah.</p> <p>PM-7.5, mostly with talem.

Ran with Jared and Clayton. 4:45, 4:41, 4:40, 4:39, 4:38.</p> Tue, 03 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 02, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-02-2019.html <p>AM-13 miles to the lake and back.</p> <p>PM-6.1 miles with strides.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 02 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 31, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-31-2019.html <p>19 mile long run with last mile on grass doing strides. I felt beat, but it may have been from the mileage or running most of these miles in the 5:40s. Ready for a fun season though.</p> Sat, 31 Aug 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 30, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-30-2019.html <p>AM-10 easy miles.

There wasn&rsquo;t a huge group, and we split up as the run went on. 6:05 average pace.
