Did buffalo ranch in park city, a dirt road with rolling hills. Nice country feel, I liked it. Had a good group of guys for 10 miles including my boy Dallin. Did the last 4 of my long run on this cool golf course. Half marathon in 1:25, last mile was 5:45. Then I had to speak in front of their whole team lol it wasn&#39;t horrible but definitely wasn&#39;t prepared for that. Anyways, did mile repeats yesterday, 6 with 60-90 sec rest. First 3 were sub 5 then I died on the fourth one and got 5:13. Felt exactly like footlocker so that sucked. Not too worried tho, talked to coach about what I need to do better. Nice recovery today with some barefoot grass miles, on track for 70 miles this week. Loving it. 7-8 mile negative split tempo tomorrow.</p> Wed, 09 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 05, 2017 http://raffrunner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-05-2017.html <p>Good down week, 53 miles. Went to Yosemite NP and hiked half dome, 16ish miles with 4800 ft elevation gain. Some nice hilly runs, one in a huge thunderstorm that I felt lucky to live through. Went trail running with Collin, Gill, and Chuck today. Did corner canyon trails, planned on 10 but hit 12. Hilly run, over 1500 ft gained and lost, miles ranged from 5:55 to 9:45, average was around 7:30.&nbsp;Shoutout to those guys,&nbsp;they&#39;re real homies</p> Sat, 05 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 28, 2017 http://raffrunner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-28-2017.html <p>Xc camp was a success. 3 hard workouts/races, 3 wins and 3 course records. Doesn&#39;t really mean a whole lot tho, I&#39;m in great shape right now but there&#39;s a&nbsp;long season ahead. Gotta stay healthy and hungry. Really a great&nbsp;week of training, ended with a downhill 5K today. Got 14:01, 4:30 mile pace. It was great to have Aiden there to race with for 2 miles. The downhill was fast and fun but it hurt. Lots of hills this week, this is what I live for. After tomorrow I&#39;ll hit 65-70 miles for this week. I love running&nbsp;</p> Fri, 28 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 24, 2017 http://raffrunner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-24-2017.html <p>Got back from my family reunion in northern Idaho. Lots of hilly and pretty forest runs. Hit 62 miles last week, 70 if&nbsp;you count mile warmups. Running is really great,&nbsp;I feel amazing and I get to run in some pretty&nbsp;amazing places. I&#39;m in Price right now at cross country camp with my awesome team and Westlake and Orem. Did a nice 8 mile trail run, went through some gnarly puddles/ponds. Uphill trail run tomorrow, going for the camp record so we&#39;ll see how that goes. Then after camp I&#39;m headed to Yosemite with my dad and maybe my bro Luke. I&#39;m sure there will be some cool runs there. Well this has been a lot longer than I thought it would be so I&#39;m going to be done typing now. Y&#39;all are good people&nbsp;</p> Mon, 24 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 15, 2017 http://raffrunner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-15-2017.html <p>Long run with Collin on the Jordan river trail.&nbsp;Planned on going 12 but we went 13 to see the hot pots which were rad. Had some really good conversations,&nbsp;it was awesome. Legs felt a little tired but not too bad, did 2X30 sec surges on the way back. Collin is such a homie and he&#39;s gonna be hecka fast in college. Nice to have someone to run with for a whole run, especially this kid.</p> Sat, 15 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 10, 2017 http://raffrunner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-10-2017.html <p>Shoutout to the skyridge boys and gill cuz they&#39;re pretty cool and I saw them today. Pretty much the highlight of my boring long run. 11 miles, 6:20 average</p> Mon, 10 Jul 2017 06:00:00
