Anything Will Burn If the Furnace is Hot Enough Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Sat, 19 Jan 2019 06:25:35 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Thu, Feb 08, 2018 <p><b>4.22 mi</b></p> <p><b>30 min</b></p> <p><strong>7:07 avg</strong></p> <p>WOOOOOO. Got my knee checked out yesterday and nothing is seriously wrong with it. Just kind tight in different places and it&rsquo;s irritating it. Ran today whole run on the track and it doesn&rsquo;t hurt at alllll. At least for now.. stretched super good and am gonna do some extra stretches and exercises when I get home to ensure that it doesn&rsquo;t get worse :)&nbsp;</p> Thu, 08 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Feb 05, 2018 <p>I ran finally today and my knee didn&rsquo;t hurt until the very end but it didn&rsquo;t hurt that bad until like an hour later and I was very sad. My dad bought me a new knee brace and hopefully that will make me feel better.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I made an Instagram account for blogs so you can go check it out @fastcarsonblog</p> Mon, 05 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Feb 01, 2018 <p>Update: I haven&rsquo;t ran since Monday because of my knee, and I could probably start tomorrow but I really need to make sure it&rsquo;s 100% before I hurt it again so I&rsquo;m going to just take the rest of the week off. Some people might see this as lucky or soemthing not having to run and having more time to do other things, but I HAAATTTEEE it. Not running sucks. And watching the 6 min test today made be sad because it feels like a race and I love racing. I&rsquo;ll be good Monday for sure and I&rsquo;m going to not get hurt again because I don&rsquo;t want to haha.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 01 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 29, 2018 <p>Oucccchhhhhh. Decided I would man up because my knee didn&rsquo;t hurt all day but then I went out 35 and felt fine but the whole way back sucked Major and now I&rsquo;m gonna die. I&rsquo;m going to take tomorrow off and rest a ton because it just hurts to even run. I might even take Wednesday off. I wanna see we&rsquo;ll see how I feel but I think it&rsquo;ll just be best to avoid all possible chances of a serious injury.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 29 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 27, 2018 <p><strong>3.8 mi</strong></p> <p><strong>30 min</strong></p> <p><b>7:59 avg</b></p> <p>Yeah today&rsquo;s run sucked last night I told myself I was gonna run 60 min but then when we started I was like ow maybe I&rsquo;ll go 45 but then a mile in I was dying and was practically dragging my leg so I only did 30. Super sad because it actually hurts really bad and I can&rsquo;t walk much. I iced and stretched and rolled so hopefully it&rsquo;ll feel better so I can play in my basketball game but I prolly won&rsquo;t be able to:((</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>UPDATE:&nbsp;</strong>I felt waaaayyyy better later in the day so I actually played the whole basketball game and I felt good the rest of the day. There is defs still pain but it&rsquo;s not nearly as bad as it was this morning</p> Sat, 27 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Jan 25, 2018 <p><b>AM 2 mi</b></p> <p><b>weights and 15 min run</b></p> <hr /> <p><strong>PM 7.85 mi</strong></p> <p><strong>62 min</strong></p> <p>Figured out a route for &ldquo;hill circuits&rdquo;. Not sure how they will work but sounds cool. I was DEAAAADDD today and the run was really long and sucky and I climbed up the side of foremaster instead of running up it and that was funny. Saw a cool&nbsp;accident by artic circle and that was cool too. Iced my shins af when I got home Bc they hurt reaaaaaly bad.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 25 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 24, 2018 <p>Solid workout with Alex and logan. Paces were a little quick toward the end but only by like a second or two. I liked doing 5 reps of 1 min CV pace rather than 10 reps of 30 sec. just that little longer push made it feel more like a workout.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 24 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 23, 2018 <p>So tired today. Mustang pass and my legs were way tight and I was just sleepy all day so I was exhausted when I got home.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 23 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 22, 2018 <p><strong>14.28 mi</strong></p> <p><strong>97 minutes&nbsp;<em>1-2-1-3-1-3 pickups with 3 min recovery</em></strong></p> <p><strong>6:48 avg</strong></p> <p>Longest run. Almost made it to The Canyons baseball fields which are the best because&nbsp;<em>fun fact:&nbsp;</em>high school musical 2&rsquo;s &ldquo;I Don&rsquo;t Dance&rdquo; number was filmed there. Really good run and felt great the whole time.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 22 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 20, 2018 <p>Rainy run w logan and Jose. Went 60 Bc I was really tired and I definitely haven&rsquo;t been drinking enough water. Super dehydrated today. Won my basketball game so that was cool.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 20 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Jan 19, 2018 <p>Tempo but in styyle. Was fun and pretty easy. Was tired on like the 6th one but the rest were fine.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 19 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Jan 18, 2018 <p>We stopped at like 15 lights on this run but I think it&rsquo;s fine. Was gonna play church ball today but my game was at 4 so I couldn&rsquo;t make it. Really long short run and my shin is kinda hurting but I stretched it real nice when I got home. Also I&rsquo;m being lazy but one day I&rsquo;ll go back and add the mileage to all of these runs lol</p> Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 17, 2018 <p>Same workout as last week. We got into the paces&nbsp;a lot better than last week. Focused on fomcaclot and each rep we did something different. My personal favorite was neck stability.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 17 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 16, 2018 <p>We did some fast workout thing before we ran with just two little reps of 20 seconds going super fast. Coach wants to start doing these often and I support Bc we could use the speed. Nice easy run today legs felt good</p> Tue, 16 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 15, 2018 <p><strong>11.51 mi</strong></p> <p><strong>91 minutes</strong></p> <p><strong>7:55 avg</strong></p> <p>Got to run Suicidal Tendencies since there was no school. Didn&rsquo;t push too hard and hip felt fine but kind of spread to my butt area. Also hbd to Robs yesterday glad we could celebrate with donuts and choc milk, even if you weren&rsquo;t there..</p> Mon, 15 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 13, 2018 <p>Ran pioneer parkway with Colton. It was like 10 when we went so it was nice and bright outside. I&rsquo;ve never really seen that trail in the light because we always do it at 6 in the morning. I was looking at the part I fell at forever ago and holy cow it&rsquo;s so terrible looking. Like I&rsquo;m surprised I didn&rsquo;t die because there are so many big rocks everywhere. #blessed</p> Sat, 13 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Jan 12, 2018 <p>Nice tempo today. Not very many people at practice today because coaches weren&rsquo;t here and it&rsquo;s a holiday weekend. Ran up Washington Pkwy for the first 8 min of tempo so we were a little slow and everyone broke off from me Alex and Jose. Kept it at 6:20&nbsp;the whole time. Shoutout to Jose for being a beast. Not very hard for me so that&rsquo;s good.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 12 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 10, 2018 <p><strong>7.6 mi</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>good workout today. Took like 3 reps to get into it and hit the pace but did the rest of the workout was solid. Not much to say besides that haha. Leg is feeling good.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 10 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 09, 2018 <p><strong>5.75 mi</strong></p> <p><strong>45 minute trail run</strong></p> <p><strong>7:49 avg</strong></p> <p>Dino Cliffs trail run today. The rain made the trail nice and puddley. More tight today than during yesterday&rsquo;s run. Ice and stretched&nbsp;real good when I got home.&nbsp;</p> <p>Started Bear Gryll&rsquo;s book &ldquo;A survival guide for life&rdquo; today. And I&rsquo;m listening to it on Audible because one of my favorite youtubers talked about how dope it is and he&rsquo;s super smart and it&rsquo;s free for a month, so I figured I&rsquo;d try it out. It&rsquo;s pretty good so far</p> Tue, 09 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 08, 2018 <p><b>12.28 mi</b></p> <p><b>85 min&nbsp;<em>3x 1-1-2 pickups with 5 min recovery between each</em></b></p> <p><strong>6:56 avg</strong></p> <p>Good long run up Turkey Farm Hill. Quick on the way back. My hip didn&rsquo;t hurt until like the last 10 minutes either so that&rsquo;s good. Wasn&rsquo;t a difficult run at all so I was very blessed. Wanted a PB and banana sandwich with some chocolate milk when I got home, but we were out of bread AND milk. So I just put peanut butter on a banana and it was actually pretty good.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 08 Jan 2018 07:00:00
