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 

5000: 14:23.1 (Mike Fanelli Invite 2019)

Indoor 3000: 8:21 (@ Weber State indoor Track converted from 8:39.28)

Mile: 4:13.9 (converted from 4:18.99 at altitude)

Road race 10000: 31:46 (alt)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)

400: 51.84h

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

10K: 29:15, berth at regionals, and top 25 finish in Lawrence

5K: 14:05

 

-Be really fit by early September and make the team even though I’m getting married in August. CHECK

-Not burn out early in the season NOT APPLICABLE

-Be On the team that wins nationals NOT CHECK

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 eat a whole food, plant-based diet, and my career goal is to help other people recognize the benefits such a diet can have on long term health. That being said, I also believe I have a competitive advantage in running because of my diet, but this is difficult to prove.

Yesterday the bottom of my foot started hurting after the run. Today it felt fine during the run at least.

Lingering achilles pain which went away to an extent by the end. Plantar pain is totally gone.

Despite starting my run really fast and the fact that it was in the morning, my achilles felt good today. Maybe it was my shoes...

Felt a little tight. Hopefully I recover by tomorrow. Felt good to run that far.

Ran mostly on grass today. My left hip and knee felt a little sensitive, like they were picking up the slack of a weak achilles tendon. Definitely not ready for a workout yet. I will have to be really judicious in getting back in it. On the one hand, I am running out of time, but on the other, I have really wrecked myself before getting back into it too early, especially after achilles tendon issues.

I wanted to take it a little slower today. I went faster at the end.

8 miles in two sessions. Lots of things have changed today with coronavirus. I still want to be as fit as I can, but now my goals might be changing a little bit.

It started randomly just snowing a ton. Idk where that came from. We had a good team meeting where I learned some things and edited my vision for this season.

Did some more exploring today. I ran up some steep hills. It was a little rocky, but I appreciated the aerobic workout.

More exploring = more ridiculous hills

The weather was chill and so was I (finally). I've been feeling a little fatigued (hard to believe based on this mileage right?) but maybe it has to do with the hills I've been running.

8 miles that felt better for my achilles tendon than it has been in a while! That's good. I ran on the flat, and its hard to say my pace. But I'm have been trying to overestimate my pace so I may have run as much as 8.5 miles.

I measured 10 miles on Map my run to see how my pace was. The good news was that I felt pretty chill and ended up doing 6:30 pace, so that means I am not in terrible shape and I may have run more mileage than I accounted for this week. The bad news was that I had to rip out a sliver, my old socks gave me a blister, and my right achilles tendon felt sore. The last one is the only major concern, so I am glad to have a couple days off.

Nice run up towards Hobble Creek. It was grey and really still outside. I got a little light rain and may have been going a bit faster than 7 min pace so I probably went farther than 9.

Felt pretty good today. I found a nice trail to run on in Maple Canyon. I will now list some of the runs I have found here to keep track of my options while here in Mapleton. If Google maps doesn't betray me, I still have yet to discover a lot of the coolest stuff around.

 

Hobble Creek canyon: Nice long run, equivalent in difficulty to RoxyAnn more or less.

Springville Run: This run doesn't use the bike path and is easier to track exact mileage. It could extend into a long run (albeit not the nicest one) that goes up into Provo once I start going longer.

MMHS run: This run takes me down into Spanish Fork and Maple Mtn High school. With a small shoulder on the road, it is a little sketchy for part of the run, but once I get down there, there is a lot to explore. 

Windmill bike path run: This is a perfect and rather quiet run for a 5-7 miler. It can be windy sometimes though.

Windmill/ gatehouse bike path run: Pull off the path on the way back to extend the run and see a neighborhood (emphasis on "neigh")  with some of the coolest houses in Mapleton. 

Hobble Creek loop: This is a modifiable run going north on the bike path to suit different distances.

Maple Canyon run: I need to explore this more. There is also the possibility to run on the road. It was super fun to run on the trail though today. Aerobically taxing on the uphill, yes, but fun!

Foothills runs: A couple of paths take you up rocky paths to the foothills with nice views of the valley. There weren't intended to be running paths and aren't as good as Bonneville shoreline, but I might be able to find some good running there.
