Running Accomplishments:

High School:

I broke Alan Webb's HS mile record with a... well, if anyone is actually reading this, I guess I'll be honest:

XC 5K: 15:57

1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

College 

Indoor 3000: 8:39 (@ Weber State indoor Track is 8:21 converted)

Indoor mile: 4:21 (4:17 converted, I ran this in practice lol)

Road race 10000: 32:23 (alt)

Road race 5000: 15:37 (alt)

800: 1:58.53

400: 51.84h

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Stay healthy and consistent over the next few months. Run sub 14:10 at the SF Distance Carnival on March 30th, get on the BYU track team, then travel again and qualify for regionals/run sub 14 in the 5K.

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to continue running as long as possible. I don't feel a need to run marathons; I would rather simply be able to run 5Ks and 10Ks for much of my adult life and at least get in a few miles until I'm pretty old.

Personal:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I like chocolate shakes.

AM: 5 miles. 

PM: 10 miles and a few strides, but my right Achilles kind of hurt. I was a little bit concerned because yesterday I went shoe shopping online and the usual places seemed to be all out of my Ride 10s. Thankfully, I found a new pair on eBay for $62!

It was lightly snowing when I left but I’m glad that I went outside. It was warm enough that I got pretty sweaty actually. 6:10 average. Didn’t feel too hot. We’ll have to get that blood test ASAP. Thankfully last night I slept great (relatively) and my body felt fine.

T minus 25 days till lift off...

AM: 6 miles

PM: 11 miles and strides. Today I felt more energized than I previously have been. I'll still get the test tomorrow I think but this is encouraging.

My friend Sarah recently told me she’s actually read my blog before. I guess I hope to get good enough that someday people can draw inspiration by reading my running history on this blog, but it also reminds me to delete a few posts where there was a lack of a filter in my comments lol.

It was a rainy workout with some wind. But I didn’t really notice it. For some reason I just haven’t mastered mile repeats yet this season. This workout where we did 800s was a lot easier than last week where I had to slog through four laps, almost all on my own. 

We did a 10 minute tempo to start. I started a bit fast and then settled in and averaged 5:05 pace (I was supposed to actually go a little slower, 5:10 pace). It felt really relaxed and I knew it would be a good workout. Then we took six minutes rest and did 5 by 800. These felt really good. About 3 minutes rest. I ran a 2:14 (they were claiming I went out in 29 which is NOT true haha), 2:17, then put on my flats for the first time in a while. I ran 2:15, 2:14, and then 2:12. I was surprised he called it at 5. Then I did weights but no power cleans since my knee hurt and Achilles a bit. Today I got my iron checked. I’ll get the results tomorrow.

My knees and achilles' tendon were hurting. I wore my roommate's hat to keep the rain out of my face. It didn't end up raining at all, but oh well.

Hmm. My confidence is oscillating like an electrocardiogram right now (can you tell I'm about to take a physiology test?) I shouldn't be too concerned. For whatever reason I have just had multiple sub-par workouts in the past few weeks. 1 mile in 4:52, then 5 by 400 w/ 90 secs rest in (63, 63, 63, 63, 65). At the end of the fourth one I realized I was dying. We took three minutes off and then did the second set: (65, 65, 65, 66, 64) I think. My knee and achilles were hurting but at least felt alright during the workout. Wet day. Still didn't feel like doing power cleans or squats.

Somehow I slogged through 17 miles today. For one reason or another, about 13 miles of it was on a treadmill. Thankfully they are there for when I need them. I did 6 in the morning and 11 in the afternoon. No strides since my knee and achilles were aching, though they didn't die.

I did a new long run today. It was kind of fun going where I have never been before, on Geneva road out toward Lindon. Coach told me to chill on it. I ended up running 6:13s, which was faster than I had planned on, but still didn't really hurt. I felt sore by the end though. Thankfully my achilles and knee felt pretty good! This was my longest run ever, I believe. And my longest week. I wore Bryce's Garmin. It was the first time I had used one since high school. Pretty nice to have.

Wow, is it already time to say goodbye to my grey Sauconys? I suppose it is. 

AM: 5 miles

PM: 11 miles. To be honest, I was a little bummed that my knee and achilles were as sore as they were today. Oh well. I may have to do the whole workout in trainers tomorrow. If so, its no big deal. At least I can do it.

Alright, it’s time to think critically. I have determined that my iron levels are normal. Today I felt just kind of tired again. I think it was fine aerobically but I just didn’t have the pop. Coach suggested that I bring down my mileage. So that’s what I’ll do. Rather than go 82-76-70 leading up to the race I’m going to cut it down significantly to about 76-70-65. I had been concerned about overtraining as I embarked with this season. Hopefully I can get my legs back ASAP. I ran 4:39, 4:40, and then put on my flats and ran 4:45, 4:44. Weird, huh? Thankfully I was able to do some light power cleans today!

Today kind of hurt. My knee and Achilles were struggling. I hope they can recover well

New shoes felt good. So did my achilles! And my knee felt a little better. I did some light squats. Four guys got cut this week. I feel bad for them, but it is SO nice to have people to run with, even though I'll still have to do a lot of front running if I am to reach my 14:10 goal in two weeks. I felt a little better today. I hope I continue to improve as I let my body rest more. I did a two mile tempo in 10:03, eight min rest, 2 by 800 w/ equal rest in 2:13, 2:13, then two 400s with 2 min rest in 62, 61.

10 miles. It was supposed to max out in the high 30s but it felt great with the sun beating down. I did a few strides by doing a ten second jog to warmp up my knee. I'm grateful to have only run once today, hopefully the extra recovery pays off!

I am very proud of myself. I only ran 6:33 pace today! The Provo river trail is closed down a bit so I had to run out in the sticks a bit. It was nice.

AM: 4 miles. Adam ran a 2:26 800 split, almost exactly what I ran at the rotary relays my freshman year. He’s not in bad shape. 

PM: 10 miles, 4 strides. Body felt better, not perfect.
