8am- K so today we did some mile repeats and I was having trouble. The first one wasnt bad like 524 or so but the next 2 were around 530 and 536. The last one was like 525 again. The problem was that on the 3rd lap I was getting like total system failure. I felt like my intestines were turning inside out, I couldnt breathe, and also I felt like throwing up. It made pushing myself insanely hard.

3pm- for my after noon run I didnt feel like getting out in the world so I did a treadmill run and I synchronized both the upstairs and downstairs tvs so that I could listen to parks and rec on the headphones which are only available on the upstairs tv but the treadmill was downstairs. It was very complicated but totally worth it.

8am- Yeah today was real good. We went on the river trail and looped it all the way around arctic circle. I wish I could describe where we went but I dont know the names of roads so too bad. It was a very eventful run. Preston saved Skylars life but then he went and tripped over a suspended chain and broke his watch :)

3pm- We went and shot some guns over by the border. I killed a lizard with a 22 and I felt kind of bad but not really. Me and Nick ran from there back along the road. We explored a little community and discovered a sweet basketball court and big field and also a small pond. It was a park. We ran like 30 minutes and I saw some dead animals on the side of the road like scattered birds and rabbits.

8am- We did old man hills today. Me Nick and Mitch had 800,400,200,800,400,200, and then another 400 and 200 to finish it off. I felt pretty good and stuff but it was still super hard. Directly following this workout I invented a new pace called ReCool #1. The Re stands for return as in a cool down returning from an out and back run. Cool stands for cool down. The #1 means basicly if your speed was on a scale from 1 to 100 it would be a 1. So my cool down was nice and slow. And lonely, nobody was as slow as me but whatever they were missing out. Coach found some Amino Fuel on the ground and gave it to Cam who gave it to Nick who gave it to me. It was cherry bomb flavor so I kept it. I even tried some when I got home- it smelled like bread but it tasted like dark wild cherry flavored protein. I was kind of scared that I would throw up but I didnt which is good.

3pm- 30 minutes on the treadmill again. Idk why I did it on the tread mill but I watched some more parks and rec while I ran.

11am- I didnt really want to run today but Im not a loser so I did anyways. I was going to do my tempo on the track but I decided to do it on the river trail. I stopped at the bathroom at sullivans park, and then I started my tempo. I did a sessiion of 10 minutes at 540 pace and then a session of 5 minutes at 530-20 pace. It was hard and I sweated a ton. When I was done my blood circulation was heightening my senses and I discovered some Desert Chiva footprints. They might have been something else but Im pretty sure they were goat tracks. Then as my heart rate slowed I also discovered some red ants on the rock I was sitting on. I was tired though so I just let them crawl on me. The rest of my run I haad a really sucky side ache and I went like ReCool #2 or #3 pace (nearing 10 minute pace) hehe. Yeah I smell real bad right now so im gonna go take a shower probably.
