NCAA Champ

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 (redshirt year): 

XC 4 mile: 21:14

Road race 10000: 34:05

Road race 5000: 15:37

Indoor mile (altitude): 4:31

800: 1:58.53

400: 51.84h

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Ya boy is back! And he is hungry from some fresh Italian pasta and to compete collegiately. 

In cross country I would like to get on the team and then compete for BYU this season.

In track I want to go under 4:05 in the indoor mile and 3:45 in the outdoor 1500. Sub 1:53 800 and sub 50 400 would be part of that.  

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:

LDS. 20 years old. Rome Italy Mission 2015-2017.

Great run on Roxyann. 4 strides. Feeling very blessed To be so aerobically fit right now to get up that hill quite fast (29:15) and not feel challenged at all.

Had an awesome workout today. That makes two workouts this week where I went faster than my goal pace (and an easy run to boot). 5 mile tempo run at 5:16 pace. Also I think my body is getting smarter and more intuitive on pace than it was before, because once again I ran very even splits. Miles 1-2 were 10:31 and miles 4-5 were 10:34.

I wanted to meet up with my high school coach so did most of my mileage and then warmed up with them for their work out. I don't think it would be wise to do it again. Afterwards I felt pretty sore and achy. I think it's best to just do my run, do my exercises, and then take a cold shower. But other than that it was alright.

I ran out of time and had to run only 1:45, which I estimated to be 14.5 miles on Mount Ashland. Boy was it hard. I've never taken altitude very seriously but I think it got to me today as I peaked around 7000 feet. And the last time I did this, I had yet to learn the philosophy that a long run shouldn't be at recovery pace so I guess with me pushing more it was bound to be a bit harder.

I drove down the hill to avoid making the firehouse loop too brutal and did it from the bottom of cherry. Felt alright for having run last night. 4 strides.

Ran with my friend Carmen, who recently finished her college running career. She ran a 2:08 800. It was weird running 8 minute pace, it was super easy. Afterwards I didn't feel like I had even run. I guess I'll keep that in mind if I ever need some serious recovery.

8 mile "power" run, as it was described by my coach. Don't ask me what that means, probably just another term those crazy utahns made up ;) Anyway I ran 43:03 or 5:23 pace. I took splits every 2 miles: 10:37, 10:58, 10:44, 10:43. Pretty good overall but I really need to build some speed in addition to my endurance which is my forte right now.

Evening: 5 miles.

Notes: you always know things are going well when you PR in practice. My current 10K PR is 34:05 from the 2015 Rex Lee run. According to my pace I hit 10K in 33:27. Solid. Also, this is I believe my highest mileage day of all time. I just didn't feel comfortable doing any less warm up or cool down than I did this morning so that's how it ended up.

IT band felt a little sore today but I'll plan on taking an ice bag tonight. Other than that my overall energy level wasn't bad at all considering how hard and much I ran yesterday. 3 strides.

Roxy run felt really good. I wasn't very tired despite going farther than ever before (over three loops). Only problem was an IT band that felt at times tender. 6:42 pace was alright I guess.

Went to the greenway for 2 by 2 miles with 4 minutes rest. Ran 10:08 and 10:16. Not what I was hoping for, but I remember how first I learned to run at a moderate pace, then a faster pace, now I'm learning to run at an even faster pace again. If I can stay healthy I believe I'll get to where I need to go. 

Evening: 4 miles to avoid hurting a sore IT band.

9 miles. I didn't do my strength workout afterward or the strides to be careful, but my IT wasn't hurting too bad.
