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

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

Short-Term Running Goals:

It's XC TIME!!!!!! I want to be on and travel with BYU's first men's XC national champs.  

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.

I got to run the Bonneville shoreline trail for the first time this year again! Yipee! Right now I am trying to balance between staying in shape and getting ready to prep for the mile in less than a month and also getting some much needed recovery. The plan is to do a light workout on Thursday.

11 miles in the rain. Beautiful day. 4 strides. I did some weights. This will be my only lifting day this week so I did lots of stuff, but not everything. I felt good, I had to hold myself back a bit. That's exactly what I would hope for.

10 miles running every grass loop we could. It was nice to run with the guys and shake it up a bit.

I'm not sure how I feel about today. Well for one, in my first workout since I went down to sea level, I REALLY felt the lack of oxygen. In between reps that was the major issue. I'm not sure what the interplay between lactic acid buildup and oxygen availability are, hopefully I learn in Exercise Phys. Anyway, it was 4 by 8, 1 by 4, and 4 by 2, but I only ran 2 8s because Isaac and I both wanted me to take it chill today. 2:10, 2:11, 61, 29, 28, 28, 28. Not bad for on my own. 3:45 rest in between the 8s (long story), then 2:30 rest and 2 min between everything else.

Long run today because of conference tomorrow in Salt Lake. It didn't feel like a long run, just a longer normal run. That's fine with me.

Rainy day. Wind wasn’t terrible. It was super nice to do a short workout. Aidan came. 3 by 300 w/ 2 min rest, 6 min rest then all over. (44, 43, 42) (44, 44, 42). Then some solid weights afterward. Strength is important for the mile.

Ten miles on the treadmill. It was cold and windy outside. My achilles felt pretty dang good actually.

Andrew wasn't there so I was supposed to lead the whole thing. 8 by 400 w/ 90 secs rest. It was nice outside for sure, but pretty windy on the backstretch. I ran 61, 61, 61. Then the wind picked up on the fourth one and I struggled to a 63. After that I just lost it and ran 63, 63, 63 (Will and Scotty led these). Closed in 61. It's too bad, I know I'm in much better shape than that. On my "good" days I feel like I could have averaged 60-61 instead of 62. I think the altitude has still got me a bit.

Carterville. On the bright side, my achilles and knee felt good. Also, I literally felt like I had an extra gear on my strides. It must be the speed work. I went pretty fast. Sadly, I felt a little fatigued today.

Wow... Rainy day but it mostly stopped by the time of our workout, so it wasn't like last Tuesday. 4 by 200 with about two minutes of rest (funny how when Isaac said he didn't care much about our rest is when we took less rest). Then we did a 3 mile progressive run around campus. We hit 27 on the first one which was faster than I expected. Then our pacer was slow and we ran a 29 on the second. Then I put my spikes on. I immediately felt a difference. My legs were just flying. I ran 26 flat on the first one and then asked to lead again and ran that one in 25. That felt good! The 3 miles we did in 6 flat (uphill), 5:17 (downhill), then I'm not sure on the last one, maybe 5:10ish. I didn't have a watch and I was in front, otherwise I would have gone faster.

Felt a little sick. Given that, it was a solid time trial. Andrew got in the way a bit since we forgot to communicate about where he would get off. So I probably had a 1:54 in me with that in mind. That's pretty good at altitude! Especially since I felt like I was just running through glue at the end- I simply don't have enough speed work under my belt to really slam dunk that.

14 miles on geneva. 6:13 pace. Sore hamstrings for some reason. Also, my shoulder were tense. I tried to relax them. Maybe they were contracting isometrically.

10 minute “tempo”- 5 minute pace through the lap, then a jog back to the lane 8 start. Overall I hit 3200 in 10:22. Then a good break, and two 400s in 60, 60. 2 min rest between. Then a 300 in 42 (into the wind), a 200 in 28 flat, and a 200 where we increased speed up to the halfway mark and then sprinted. Isaac got me at 12.2 but that is probably quite inaccurate. I did feel like I could have better 100 speed. It’ll come. Light weights. Gotta run a 4:08 on Saturday to make the team. My goal is, unlike last race, to go out in a what is necessary to at least give myself a shot!!!

2 by 400 and 2 by 200. I wanted to simulate race day and practice running my first lap. My first was 62 high. Uh oh. The second one I have about the same effort and thought “there’s no way I can hold this for four laps on Saturday”. Luckily, that one was a 59 so I don’t have to hold it for that long! That may have been the most controlled sub 60 I’ve ever run. It still is hard to beleive I can run four 61.8s in a row, but every race I feel that way! So I’m going to try to go out that hard so I can allow it to actually happen.

Didn't feel amazing tbh. Four strides. Maybe it was because I ran in the morning.

Well, I got my rear end kicked today. I was way more nervous then normal. I'm not sure why. I definitely need to do everything I can to decrease sympathetic tone before future races, as I naturally get more nervous than I need without trying. I was 62, then 2:06, then I don't know. It was a bummer. But everyone is entitled to a bad race. I just can't let this affect my confidence. I should at least be able to run a 4:12 in good conditions, even if a 4:10 is maybe a little better than I am. So now I have to decide whether to continue my season and run the last chance meet, or call it quits. After the race I threw up a bit. It was really nice to have my brother and his friends come along with my girlfriend and her roommate. Plus my family got to watch it online. Too bad I didn't run well lol.

So I heard from Isaac last night that the last chance meet isn’t really happening. That’s too bad. On the flip side, apparently Eyestone actually wants me to be on the team this fall. That’s cool! For now I’m planning on finishing the season with an 800 time trial this Saturday. So it was kind of weird that we did Ks today. I was supposed to run 2:55. I went out in 64 ha. Then I just chilled to a 2:49 and was surprised how easy that was. We had a bit less than three minutes rest between every rep. Then I did 2:53 and 2:52. I wish I had someone to pace me on the 400s. I ran the first one in 57. Then 61, 62, and 60.
