Technically it was high recovery today, but my legs weren&#39;t feeling too wonderful today so I decided to take a few miles off and bike for a bit instead.&nbsp;</tt></p> Wed, 13 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 12, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-12-2017.html <p>Ran a long ways, very slowly today. High recovery run at 8:50ap (haha am i a turtle or what?). Did a long out and back up Sundance and into Apline a bit. Felt okay but my legs felt pretty lethargic.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 12 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 11, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-11-2017.html <p><tt>Let&#39;s just all take a moment to appreciate that it will be fall soon, and then these miserable days of bone-melting runs will finally be OVER... Anyway today we ran the &quot;kicker&quot; and truth-be-told I didn&#39;t exactly &quot;kick it&quot; today. I sure tried hard, but I think the kicker was the one doing the kicking today. Legs just felt dead and breathing wasn&#39;t so good. So you tell me... what happened?! Ugh. Better luck (and stamina) to myself next time i guess. (my time was a 10:11 - yuck yuck yuck - ) After, to my eternal dismay, we had high mileage to finish, so that&#39;s what I did cuz I&#39;m a champ. Did 4 miles out-and-back towards Smith&#39;s with some of the girls the finished my last two miles on the grass barefoot. I definitely was D-O-N-E by the end and I really lived by my motto to&nbsp;&quot;stay thirsty&quot; because I think after I drank like 5 gallons (give or take hah) of water.</tt></p> <p><tt>***Also sidenote if any of my fans want to support my squad come watch my pal Lil Nug (aka Carolyn) kill it in the hoco pageant on Thursday night (she is doing the Napolean Dynamite dance which will be EPIC!)</tt></p> Mon, 11 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 09, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-09-2017.html <p><tt>Well first of all shoutout to the haters (*cough chuck*) who accused me of being a &quot;fair-weather&quot; blogger and ditching after one day... news flash: I&#39;m still going strong.</tt></p> <p><font face="monospace">Anyway&#39;s today&#39;s run was a good one. I just did this loop I had in my mind and didn&#39;t worry so much about the distance considering I went over yesterday. It was a good loop although the hill at the end just about killed me. I was also feeling pretty good considering how wrecked I felt yesterday.</font></p> <p><font face="monospace">Also final shoutout to myself for a job well done (at least I hope) on the ACT... the real question though is: was it enough. We shall see... We shall see.&nbsp;&nbsp;</font></p> Sat, 09 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 08, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-08-2017.html <p>I&#39;m baaaaaaaaack hah. Murray Invite today. It was a little weird in that the first mile my legs felt pretty bad, but when I hit the second mile they felt a lot better, less heavy. kind of the opposite of how it normally is. I felt good about this race overall... I still really want to get my average pace up a lot more by the end of the season but it was by far the best race of the season for me :)</p> Fri, 08 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 19, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-19-2017.html <p><tt>Last (very early) run with GanGan today&nbsp;</tt><span style="font-family: 'Apple Color Emoji'; font-size: 20px;">&#128557; </span><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font face="monospace">(mario was there too) we started at lehi high and did the seven mile loop up past AF junior. My legs are seriously so shot (probably because I&#39;ve gotten almost no sleep lately) so it was a little rough. Made it tho hah. After dids abs and some pushups cuz why not. Also good luck to Gan and Guppy at college; gonna miss those two lots and lots. &lt;/3</font></span></p> Sat, 19 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 18, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-18-2017.html <p><font face="monospace">Paced part of Gan&#39;s mile, then recovery.

I&#39;m so out of shape.</tt></p> Thu, 17 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 16, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-16-2017.html Wed, 16 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 15, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-15-2017.html Tue, 15 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 14, 2017 http://watson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-14-2017.html <p><tt>Got up early this mornin and ran by myself cuz I went to breakfast with ma HEFY fam (goodtimes...). Mile wu and then 10x60sec pickups with 90sec rest inbetween. Felt pretty good and the pickups were solid, until after the pickups then it was niiiiice and slow to finish up. Did my run over to the MCT and on that for a ways. I&#39;m just hoping that my legs will start feeling good by Thursday for our first (ahhhhhh!) meet.&nbsp;</tt></p> Mon, 14 Aug 2017 06:00:00
