I just finished Foundation by Isaac Asimov. It was an intriguing read. Not sure if i’m a sci-go nut or have just found the high-level stuff right off the bat.

pm--7 Harmons out-and-back. I decided to take a few days off this week to heal up and not think about running. The first was more successful than the second. Monday or Tuesday, I came across a journal from NAU's championship run this year. Here's a link: https://view.publitas.com/p222-16027/back-to-back-a-season-with-the-nau-mens-cross-country-team/page/1. It really it an interesting read and, surely, it got me out the door this afternoon. It's funny how a few days off can make the first mile or two back feel like work, but I eventually got into a groove. Good to be back. RHR--48.

pm—6 Tready miles, progressing a tad bit until the end. Felt good. The thing I like about the treadmill is that it’s easier to hold form at slightly slower paces. RHR—59.

pm—3.25 I intended on running more, but my calf/knee and heel were more painful than the’ve been in months. So I opted out at 3.

am--8 Variation on the morning route. I was privileged to run in the winter garb--gloves, beanie, tights, etc.--and loved it. My aches felt better today, at least back to normal. Peppyish by the end. RHR--52.

pm--6.25 Green Valley Loop. Nice chill in the air. I felt like I got into a nice flow. The pace was a little slower than I thought it was, but I always have a steady rise in pace as the run progresses. That's good. RHR--52. 

Yesterday, I finished another book—Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History by Laurel Thatcher-Ulrich. It was recommended by one of my most masculine friends. The author works wonders with seemingly small stories. This book is framed around three historical women and their questions about a woman’s place in the world. Side note, the author is a Mormon Feminist.

pm--9 Big Looping up by The Canyons and over by my gpa's old corrals--there's a park there now. I've been trying to ease into runs and go by feel throughout the run. Tonight felt nice. On a side note, the fitbit claims that 100% of my run is at peak heart rate. Whatevs. The thing is jacked. RHR--52. 

I finished the 2nd installment of the Foundation series--Foundation and Empire. Isaac Asimov is topnotch sci-fi. These authors have amazing minds, and I get a kick out of sci-fi. It's a win-win. I'll probably dive into the final book in the original series in the next week or so.

pm--6.5 Tready Work. After a 20-min. warm-up, I did some pick-ups--7x 1 min. from light tempo down to tempo, 4x 90 sec. at tempo for :60 and mid-6's for :30, and, finally 4x 30 sec. from mid-6's down to low-6's. Cooled for about a mile. It was nice to get the legs moving. My breathing wasn't forced, and I was able to stay pretty calm and loose at those paces. Nice stuff. RHR--53.

pm—6.25 Full Green Valley loop. I try to keep the gait smooth, but the pace wasn’t there.  No worries. It’s an easy run just building miles again. RHR—54.
