Aviary again but we stopped too much</p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 24, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-24-2017.html <p>It was a good run today!&nbsp;We started running towards LP and saw the AF 10k going on and they had the roads blocked off so we jumped on in. We ran down to Art Dye, passing tons of people on the way. Ali was being very motivational to everyone. At the finish line we were trying to find Ali and Rachel who vanished and we found&nbsp;Courtney. She forgot her keys to&nbsp;her car so she needed a ride back. We ran past AF and back to get 7 and then Ali&#39;s dad was there to drive us back to Legacy park</p> Sat, 24 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 23, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-23-2017.html <p>It was good to have everyone back today!&nbsp;We did Aviary. I didn&#39;t feel good the first 2 miles but then once we started going sub 7 I felt really good. The faster we go the better I feel. I added one with Courtney at the end.&nbsp;Shoutout to Zack for helping me with college stuff&nbsp;</p> Fri, 23 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 22, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-22-2017.html <p>We did Charlie Brown again. It was one of those runs where it felt better to go faster. Picked it up last 2 miles with one of the fast freshman&nbsp;</p> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 21, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2017.html <p>Last night I smacked my foot against the wall in my sleep (idk how)&nbsp;I thought it was a dream but my foot had a bruise when I woke up. Luckily it didn&#39;t hurt on the run haha.&nbsp;We ran to LP and back and I added one. We kept it pretty chill and I felt a lot better than yesterday&nbsp;</p> Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 20, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2017.html <p>Ran early today. I love running when the sun is coming up. I didn&#39;t feel great tho&nbsp;</p> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 19, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-19-2017.html <p>Out to ridgeline trails and back.&nbsp;I added one on the bridge. I felt really tired today&nbsp;#thevisit&nbsp;</p> Mon, 19 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 17, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-17-2017.html <p>Felt tired all day. Went by&nbsp;myself in the heat because of work.&nbsp;Tried to run off feel and not look at the watch. Went faster than I thought&nbsp;</p> Sat, 17 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 16, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-16-2017.html <p>First 3 with a slower group it felt so relaxing.&nbsp;Then I added on 2 more miles with courtney and we picked up the pace.&nbsp;I&#39;m glad I took it slower at the beginning. I need to run slower sometimes&nbsp;</p> Fri, 16 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 15, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-15-2017.html <p>Did 2 out with the team to highland library&nbsp;and then everyone went back so it was just me and Courtney&nbsp;and Jeremy. Just like good ole times on the highland trails. I love those trails, so many good runs. We&nbsp;picked up the pace haha we just cannot keep it chill.&nbsp;Went&nbsp;sub 7 for the last 2 miles. Honestly I felt terrible and it hurt but it was fun to push and courtney is just the best&nbsp;</p> Thu, 15 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 14, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-14-2017.html <p>&nbsp;Just another day. Didn&#39;t feel great didn&#39;t feel terrible. Stopped too much tho</p> Wed, 14 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 13, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-13-2017.html <p>Basically we did the same run as yesterday just backwards and added on. The overcast weather was pretty nice. We had a good group the last 2 miles and came home faster. 6:45 last mile which felt easy. Courtney started sprinting at the end so I went with and it&nbsp;surprisingly felt good</p> Tue, 13 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 12, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-12-2017.html <p>Man I&#39;m struggling. I could not breath and my legs are still really sluggish. We did Westfield and then some trails.&nbsp;&nbsp;Courtney told me to get 30 miles this week&nbsp;</p> Mon, 12 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 10, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-10-2017.html <p>I had high hopes for this run but&nbsp;Monroe no show. We did aviary and Charlie Brown...again. I could not breath and my legs were dead. Ryan was teasing everyone and being really weird.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 10 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 09, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-09-2017.html <p>Easy 3 with a good group. We&#39;re calling it the pretty house run because courtney thinks a house we run by is pretty. But she says that for basically every house haha.&nbsp;My legs are still dead.&nbsp;Capture the flag didn&#39;t happen. Good times making&nbsp;fun of courtney for saying Seattle weird and she threw her key at me... twice&nbsp;</p> Fri, 09 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 08, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-08-2017.html <p>I&#39;m really tired and sore so I&nbsp;should have gone 3 or 4 (hey that rhymed)&nbsp;My calves were super tight the whole time which is not fun. We did a bad version of Charlie Brown. Instead of passing the Charlie Brown house and doing the fun trails we went up workout hill.&nbsp;Ew. On the bright side, no freshman pushing the pace. And shoutout to Ali for a real nice parking job&nbsp;</p> Thu, 08 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 07, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-07-2017.html <p>Westfield loop.&nbsp;Everyone ditched ali while she had a bloody nose smh.&nbsp;I realized and turned around on the trail and we ran the last half mile.&nbsp;I just want to run with the old team.&nbsp;I ran farther than I meant to so&nbsp;I&#39;m gonna try to chill tomorrow&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 07 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 06, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-06-2017.html <p>Went to practice planning on going 3 but wanted to do the loop so did 4. Then everyone was doing 5 so I just did that. There are a lot of freshman that like to push the pace so it will be an interesting summer. I&nbsp;wonder how Madi will react haha. I felt pretty good considering it&#39;s the second run back. It&#39;s really weird running with the team and not being on the team. We did lunges and squats so I&#39;m gonna be sore tomorrow&nbsp;</p> <p>A little bit playing fugitive with cousins. My legs don&#39;t remember how to run, I thought I was gonna trip haha&nbsp;</p> Tue, 06 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 05, 2017 http://Erickson.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-05-2017.html <p>Well, first run in 2 weeks. I thought I would hate the break but it was great.&nbsp;I had PLENTY of in-n-out and Dr Pepper. It felt good to be running again but the&nbsp;first week back is always terrible. Also it was burning hot but I had good music (when can I see you again from Wreck&nbsp;it Ralph is my personal fav) and I wanted to see what I still had so I did a quick&nbsp;last mile 6:13</p> Mon, 05 Jun 2017 06:00:00
