Ran with wes tibbletts on the hillside trails. Great fall day but extremely sore still.

6 miles

Ran to Huffman and back and I'm extremely sore especially in my hip flexors.  All this running has really took a toll on my flexibility and my all round athleticism.  I need to be more conscious of the total package while training for marathons.


Wrestled and drilled just a little.

7 miles

Easy pace at the AK club.

6 miles

Easy recover pace.  All week!!

8 miles

Same as yesterday, but I picked it up the last couple miles just down to 6:30ish pace.

8 miles

Easy recovery at the AK club.  I felt really good, but will keep it real easy for another full week or more.  Plus, wrestling starts on Wednesday!

Easy recovery at the AK club before Tae's dance recital.

Had a blast after school running to Rabbit Lake and back even though it was by myself.  I kept it real easy.  It was snowing up there and I ran into a huge group of ptarmigan.  Need to do this more often.

8 miles

Another beautiful day out.  I should've went for a hike in the mountains.  I did the coastal trail again for just about an hour, nice and easy.  Legs getting better every day.

6 miles

Beautiful day outside, so I wanted to do something.  Ran from Westchester on the coastal trail.  Legs felt better the longer I ran.

Ran super easy at the AK club.  Legs didn't feel that great:) But, it was nice to move a little.

28 miles (Equinox Marathon 3:04:18- 3rd Place)

Always a tough race, but I actually had a good time.  I didn't do anything specific to get ready for this race and it showed on the ups and downs.  Beautiful course and love the fall colors in Fairbanks.  Still one of my favorie races.

1.8 mile warm-up around UAF

4 miles

Easy shake out run on the south track.  The sun was finally out!

5.5 miles ( 6 x 20 sec strides)

Pouring rain still outside.  It can stop now.  Felt really really good today.  Threw in some strides too.  Ran at AK club.

6 miles

Kept it easy recovery pace, but I felt really good which is encouraging.  All easy runs until race day!

7 miles (3 @ MP- 5:56, 5:52, 5:49)

Pouring outside, so I did this indoors at the AK Club.  Super warm and sweat everywhere.  Felt really good though.

6 miles

Ran from school and did the lower 4 and extra.  Legs felt heavy and stiff and my hips were bugging.

Legs still sore, so just going for a walk today.

12 miles

I was gonna run trails today, but it was pouring outside.  I mean I haven't it seen it come down like that in a long time.  Wasn't gonna have a crappy run, so I just went to the AK club.  Started at 7:30 pace and progressed down to 6:07 pace.  Felt really good.

6 miles

Super easy again at the AK club to keep it easy.  Quads still a little sore from wednesday.

7 miles

Super easy recovery at the AK club.  Decided to keep it just at 7 miles, when I could feel some soreness in quads.  Felt good though.  Need to just make sure legs are feeling good for next saturday.

12 miles

Ran with Matias up in Bear Valley.  He has some amazing and fun routes up there on the mountain.  It's definitely a running style I need to work on, but it's a lot of fun.  We ran for 1hr. and 45min and covered about 12 miles.  Need to do this more next year!

8 miles

Went to the AK club to run super easy recovery. Felt good.

21 miles

Ran my new 20 mile loop this morning and added a mile.  I ran the downhills hard to get my quads used to it for Equinox.  Maybe a little too late, but I just gotta get to the starting line healthy and ready.  I felt pretty good.  Ran a bunch of sub 6 mile too.

10 miles

Easy recovery miles at the AK Club. I'm gonna do almost all recovery on a treadmill until Equinox to make sure I keep it easy and my legs get better.

12+ miles

Met Matias at Service after school and ran the Hillside Trails.  It was actually a lot of fun getting on the trails and talking with Matias.  Great guy and nice to pick his brain.  He's having a great summer of racing at the age of 45.  Motivating!!!

9 miles

Easy recovery run at the South High Track.  I wanted a nice easy surface to just make sure I was at recovery pace.  Felt pretty good, but it was cold and rainy.

12 miles (5 @ Tempo)

Ran from Studio 49 and it was a beautiful day out.  Felt ok during the workout.  It's just nice to know that my legs can move a little faster still.  It's been rough since Lost Lake.

3.5 mile warm up w/ Strides
5 miles straight tempo (5:36, 5:36, 5:38, 5:39, 5:39)
3.5 mile Aerobic

10 miles

Ran from Studio 49 today.  It was another beautiful sunny day.  Hard to believe the weather the past 2 summers. I'll take it.  I felt okay and had some energy, but I still don't feel smooth running.  I didn't really run hard, but it wasn't true recovery either.  Try just to be relaxed and run.  Ran 6:5X average for the run.  Gonna do a tempo run tomorrow on the same route.

10 miles

I wanted to fully recover from the long run yesterday.  It seems the only way to make sure is to jump on a treadmill.  My legs seems to recover much faster that way.  Felt really good, but kept it super easy at 7:30-7:40 pace.
