***RISE***UP*** Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/ Mon, 21 Aug 2017 19:46:28 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Tue, Jul 04, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-04-2017.html Last blog entry for the next two years. Drove up to the kaysville 5k. My back was tight so I knew it was gonna be difficult. Race started and some davis alumni started out hard, then Garrett Barton and I caught him. We passed him and started hauling down the hill, 4:40 pace. Then the uphill started. Garrett pulled away, took a wrong turn so I had to run a tiny bit after him and yell him down to get on the course again then I got back on the course and ran til he caught me with 300 to go and then just kept the pace going in. Garrett went for it cuz he deserved the W cuz he would have had a 30 m gap had he not gone off course. Good times though. I hope that all of your running goes well, I would love to hear about it and anything else in life. My missionary email is zachary.ericksen@myldsmail.net. i have loved running but I love the gospel and the Lord more! I know that God loves us and cares for each of us! I know this church is true and I'm excited to serve the Lord for 2 years!! Tue, 04 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 03, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-03-2017.html <p>6.4 with the team. Kinda sad cuz it might be the last time I see many of them. Then breakfast at Justin&#39;s house after!</p> <p>Super crazy day, right after I got home went straight to the bank to make sure my debit card would work, then right after that went and packed a bit more, then right after that bball with some of the squad, then to a friends before he left to idaho and doesn&#39;t get back til after I leave,&nbsp;then right after that to UtahRUN to say bye to some of the fam, and to pick up some tevas, then to run with Skyridge good ol&#39; jail trail, then to get a snow cone with ellie, then to talk to mickinley. &nbsp;Gonna miss her a lot and all the other people!&nbsp;Now it&#39;s 11:30 and in under 24 hours I will be set apart as a missionary. &nbsp;</p> <p>Also sorry to all the other people who called me to do stuff but I didn&#39;t answer cuz I was busy... and I&#39;m busy all day tomorrow. &nbsp;Gonna miss you all!</p> Mon, 03 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 01, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-01-2017.html <p>Hiked up pfeifferhorn and back down to red pine lake then back down to the cars! Good times!</p> <p>Later ran over to the track, did a warmup, then did a mile, 2x400, 2x300, 2x200. Went 4:50, 65, 67, 47, 46, 31, 25. &nbsp;Reminded me why I didn&#39;t like track workouts. &nbsp;I felt like I was gonna puke, and my chest hurt but nevertheless it was a good time! Ready for the kaysville 5k to hopefully pull off the W!</p> Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 30, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-30-2017.html <p>Hiked to red pine lake</p> Fri, 30 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 29, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-29-2017.html <p>Just a good camping trip with some of the xc super seniors! little hike in but no run. &nbsp;But some cross training with kayaking later today which I&#39;m stoked for!</p> Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 28, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-28-2017.html <p>Camping with the crew then a sick trail run with collin and Joe. &nbsp;Collin started pushing the pace to sub 5 on the down hill which was fun! Good times. &nbsp;Plan is to go more with Ryan Raff tonight!</p> Wed, 28 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 27, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-27-2017.html <p>Did a half mile warm up thing, then we did 6 mile version of black trail, dropped the other guys off at the park then went pretty quick for the last 2 miles. &nbsp;The team was giving me flak for going to skyridges practice yesterday. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 27 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 26, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-26-2017.html <p>Good times with skyridge! Did the kicker which was fun! Also did some of their ab stuff and I was dying lol. Sad day though cuz it might be the last time I see a lot of them for two years. Wish them all the best in their endeavors!!</p> <p>Yay! Kinley was home from China and that was super exciting so some of the work crew hung out! Good times, but before that Joe and I did extended Mt. run and got 7 miles. Stellar time but I don&#39;t know how I would feel after doing multiple weeks of these kind of mileage days like college!</p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 24, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-24-2017.html <p>Good times with the team. Felt pretty tired in the morning waking up, probably cuz I only slept a tiny bit last night but still came to run. Went and ran by lone peak, and ran against the wave of AF half marathoners and got told we were going the wrong way like a thousand times. Looped around, got 9.5 at the park and looped around more to get to 10.1. Basically a third of my weekly mileage so good times.</p> <p>Went and did some trails with joe later in the night! Super sick! Good times!</p> Sat, 24 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 23, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-23-2017.html <p>Good times, just did 4 with the girls cuz that&#39;s how far all the other guys went. &nbsp;Had a grand total of 5 guys so that was a joy. &nbsp;Started picking it up at the end which was fun. Also I forgot yesterday but Happy Blog Birthday to the one and only Parker! &nbsp;One year old on the blog so shout out to him!</p> Fri, 23 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 22, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-22-2017.html <p>Today was the day! &nbsp;Was deciding whether to do it coming down near lambert or down the canyon and decided Lambert cuz it was easier to make a loop instead of running straight back up. &nbsp;Felt like it was too steep after though so I wish I chose the canyon.&nbsp;&nbsp;Did .2 mile warm up, then took off, first 10 seconds my hammy&#39;s were tight but I kept going and they didn&#39;t get much worse. &nbsp;Checked my watch at 2:37 and I thought it said .53 and I was like well that&#39;s a bust, but decided to keep going and seeing what I would finish at. Then I check it at 3:02 and saw it said .80 and I realized I must have misread it. &nbsp;Cruised in to the finish and finished with 3:53! &nbsp;This was just for fun, definitely doesn&#39;t count as a PR or having a better mile time then all those fast guys who almost/do break four on the track. &nbsp;Lots of fun, next up will be a 5k on the track trying to break 15 minutes. &nbsp;</p> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 21, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2017.html <p>Took a weird step yesterday on the run and my foot was hurting so I decided not to run today, unless it feels better tonight. Planning on running tomorrow.</p> Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 20, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2017.html <p>6 with AF! Good times, pretty quick also which was fun!</p> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 19, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-19-2017.html <p>Black trail today. None of the seniors are gonna be here this week, at least not josh craik or justin. &nbsp;Made it kind of boring but I talked to some of the newer kids so that was a plus. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 19 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 17, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-17-2017.html <p>Just balling today cuz of youth conference. &nbsp;</p> Sat, 17 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 16, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-16-2017.html <p>Started out extra slow but then we started picking it up. &nbsp;Went 5.01 with the team then decided to run home and got a little excited that I could go a quicker pace I ended up going 5:30 ap for that part. &nbsp;Good times though. &nbsp;</p> Fri, 16 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 15, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-15-2017.html <p>Pace was quicker today which was fun! Felt kind of tired but oh well. Legs are starting to feel a little better from running down mahogany but my quads are still wrecked. &nbsp;</p> Thu, 15 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 14, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-14-2017.html <p>Started out slower again, then last two miles went 6:20ish which felt amazing! &nbsp;Gonna do a 5k on the track and gonna try to break 15 next week with Josh and Craik pacing me so excited for that! &nbsp;Also gonna do a downhill mile, maybe the AF canyon half cuz I think I could blaze a quick time in that&nbsp;and then end my running on the 4th of july 5k up at davis!</p> <p>4 in the night with Joe! &nbsp;Good times!</p> Wed, 14 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 13, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-13-2017.html <p>Just the usual. &nbsp;Kind of boring. &nbsp;Thankfully Josh took one for the team and started &quot;pushing the pace&quot; and started going just under 7:00 which was really nice then we started going a little faster til we were low six which felt amazing compared to the 7:45. &nbsp;3 weeks to the day until I am set apart as a missionary!! &nbsp;Breakfast at T-Motts after</p> <p>2.12 miles from fugitive</p> Tue, 13 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 12, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-12-2017.html <p>Hiked Mahogany at 3:30, slower paced hike cuz the guys I was with weren&#39;t all xc kids but it was still stellar. &nbsp;Decided that I still wanted to run and if I didn&#39;t go to xc it would be boring cuz I don&#39;t like running alone, so I decided to haul down mahogany and made it to practice on time! Took over an hour and a half to hike up and made it down in 28 minutes of moving time, I&#39;m gonna be feeling it tomorrow. &nbsp;6.35 at practice, good old black trail. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 12 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 09, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-09-2017.html <p>Just 4 with the team. &nbsp;We were gonna play capture the flag but then that didn&#39;t happen.&nbsp;</p> <p>Good time in the night with the Tellie Benrod! 3.03 more, super windy though.</p> Fri, 09 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 08, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-08-2017.html <p>Good little run! Started out slower then picked it up a bit! &nbsp;First part was tiring but it got easier as we went more. &nbsp;</p> <p>Hard core bball in the night! Good times! Then off to prank some people which we pranked ryan which was kind of lame but whatever then pranked others which was super funny!</p> Thu, 08 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 07, 2017 http://zacke.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-07-2017.html <p>Didn&#39;t make it to practice cuz I was able to go through the temple this morning, super cool experience! &nbsp;Then went to work later and after ran 4.75 with Joe. &nbsp;Did parts of Charlie Brown, Mtn.
