Workout on the track. Just pushed Rachel, Abby, and PJ. 4x800, 5x400 @ I pace with a minute recovery. Then, 6x200 @ Rpace with 200 recovery. Rachel took a drink break, so we ran one extra 200 to push her. I&nbsp;only had my gps watch, so getting splits was rough. They ran them all fast, which was awesome. It&#39;s fun being able to still run with people, and it&#39;s probably the only social life I get, haha.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 11 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 09, 2017 http://claire.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-09-2017.html <p>Pretty busy day and only made time to run a bit.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 09 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 08, 2017 http://claire.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-08-2017.html <p>5 up Birch in the heat. Tried to keep my average pace under 9 going up,&nbsp;but I had a snake encounter. I didn&#39;t see it until I was inches away and did what any teenage girl would do. Scream and back up super quickly. It was just a yellow and black garter, but I was so in the zone, haha. I waited for it to cross the road and caught my breath, then kept going up. I was pretty paranoid after that, so I didn&#39;t go so as far up as I was hoping. Kept my average pace going up under 9 and enjoyed the downhill back.</p> Fri, 08 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 07, 2017 http://claire.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-07-2017.html <p>Found a chance to run in the middle of the afternoon. Went up the canyon.&nbsp;My miles were 7:22, 7:54, 7:37, 7:26, 7:57. Barely kept the last (uphill) mile under 8.</p> Thu, 07 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 06, 2017 http://claire.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-06-2017.html <p>Watched the ridgeline @ sv meet,&nbsp;helped out a bit. Ran 3 in the smog with Ruby up birch. &nbsp;Didn&#39;t bring a watch, but I&#39;m assuming my pace was slow, haha.</p> Wed, 06 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 05, 2017 http://claire.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-05-2017.html <p>3.5 in the morning with Ruby. I was hoping to go more, but my stomach wasn&#39;t feeling great. Super slow. 10 minutes of core right after.</p> <p>3 in the afternoon with sv. Played some 10 dot dot at Mack Park. It was pretty fun.</p> Tue, 05 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 04, 2017 http://claire.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-04-2017.html <p>Went up Smithfield Canyon with my dad. My mind wandered the entire time, but it was fun. Came back down on Sunnyside. 8:30 average pace and felt really good.</p> Mon, 04 Sep 2017 06:00:00
