PM- 6 easy with Nick up the canyon. Felt really good legs-wise, but ran less than 2 hours after I had lunch so I had some gnarly intestinal explosions. Gotta hit it at least 3 or 4 hours after eating I guess.

PM- Nice easy 4 down on the trail. It was really cold! Like low 30s. There was a lot of nice wildlife on the trail which made it fun. I saw a black cat at the start and then what appeared to be either a mommy deer with 2 adolescent children OR 2 lesbian deer with an adopted adolescent. Almost immediately after the deer I saw a human girl running down the trail. Later, I saw about 50 pheasants scurrying around. Overall I felt really good and probably could have gone more, but I'm kind of wary about increasing too much in mileage all at once. I'll do a couple more 6 milers this week and move into 1 or 2 8 milers next week.

QUESTION TO ALL EXPERIENCED RUNNERS: My main goal is to become a marathoner and get down around the 2:40:00.00 range. I want to invest in a nice running watch. In high school I ran with a Nike+ that I still own, but because Nike is stupid and for some reason took away their software, my memory on it is full and I am unable to delete past history. This has resulted in me being unable to use the GPS on it (besides the fact that I'm not all that impressed with that watch anyways). I'm willing to spend up to $300-350 (would prefer lower of course). What watch would you recommend? Nick has the Forerunner 225 which seems pretty dope, but what recommendations do you have?

Easy 3 into a swag neighborhood with Nick. Had some good times, ran down the hill and then down another hill and down one more which made for a heck of a time on the way back. Nice weather. Saw Preston Avenue

PM- Went for an evening run with Nick over at the fieldhouse indoor 200m track cause it was so dang cold. It was pretty chill and we talked about our greatest races. It was fun getting excited about what we did in high school. As we were running, a guy on a giant unicycle came up next to us and challenged us to a 200m race. We accepted and I took an early lead. As we came with 50m left, Nick ran up next to me and the unicycle guy was close behind. As we crossed the finish line, we were all neck and neck but I won by a hair.

PM- 4 easy this evening after a huge USU Basketball win over Hartford. These games are a lot more fun than the football games because our student section is so freakin loud it's insane. We absolutely destroy the morale of the other team's players as well. Nick and I ran when it was freaking cold and was my first time wearing gloves this year. It went pretty well. Presto abs and 2 episodes of 24 after.

AM- 6 easy on my own up Logan Canyon. Felt amazing lungs and stomach-wise, but didn't feel super energized and my shins started acting up a little bit. I averaged 7:54. I think it's because I ran not having eaten anything this morning.

Living with Nick has helped me put more priority on recovery. On to do some yoga and roll out those calves then a big recovery meal.
