First workout with the team. Thought it would be hobble creek so I had to do the 4 mile grass loops in trainers. 4:54, 4:54, 4:53, 4:54. Good consistency and not bad times considering I was leading the second group for the first three before joining the top group, and the trainers. Could've gone another 800 but didn't want to push too hard.

Good run. Didn’t sleep well last night so I wasn’t worried but I felt pretty good the whole way. 2 by 3K at Kiwanis (2 loops). I wanted to do another mile but coach said no. Interesting contrast from previous attempts to make the team where I felt like I was pushing myself way too hard, these first two workouts have been way under control. Ran with Jake and Garnica on the first one, then followed Mantz on the second. 5 flat pace more or less.

18 miles around 3:00 because of my grandparents’ funeral. Rough go. Afterwards I felt kind of sick. I stopped for water three times, I literally don’t think I would have made it if I hadn’t. Good thing tomorrow is Sunday.

10 by 1k... Thought we had 90 seconds rest but it was only 60. Flotrack came to film. It was pretty rough but I was smart and also felt blessed that I didn't go crazy early because if your legs are burning during that before the end, you will drop way off the pace. I'm glad I did all ten. 3:06, 3:07, 3:08, 3:07, 3:08, 3:07, 3:08, 3:07, 3:08, 3:06. The top group started dropping me but at least it was because they were speeding up, not because I was slowing down.

The rain was pouring today and coming off a hot week, no one was really prepared for it. I don’t have any more gear here so I started my warm up on the indoor track. We did mile, 1200, 800 w/ 3-5 minutes rest. First two on the grass, 800 on the track. I ran 4:54, 3:35, 2:13 the first set and 4:49, 3:32, and 2:12 on the second. I started feeling better towards the end at the same time as the weather started clearing up. I’m really glad to be on a good team finally. I am in a great spot right now where I have the chance to claw my way into that top pack. I’d really like to.

I woke up at 7:15 and stuffed myself so I could run t 10:30. Bad idea. Always better to undereat than overeat. I felt full all the way up through the race. Oh well. We went out way fast. By lap two I was kind of slogging through it. I don't think anyone would say this was their best performance. I still passed a couple people even though I was dying. Will beat me right at the end so I was 13th overall, 10th on the team. Nothing to be ashamed of. On to the next one!

Hobble Creek. It was good weather today. I did a good job making sure to not overeat beforehand, but what made today hard was that we went out fast- the "warmup" accelerated to 5:40 pace by the time it was over. Part way through I started to feel sick to my stomach. Around 34 minutes though I felt a second wind and was able to catch Garett. He and I ran together the last ways. It hurt, but I didn't wreck myself like I did a couple years ago. I ran 46:53. That's a two minute PR, about 5:40 pace up the canyon I think.

Ouch. Last time I went into a workout not feeling so hot, I did great. Today I didn’t feel so hot, and I didn’t do so hot. We did the Michigan. Started with a 4:37 mile. I felt smacked and ran 5:15 on the tempo. Then I limped through a 3:36 1200. 5:13 mile. 2:23 800. Coach then had me run just an 800. 2:29. On the bright side, I think this break was needed and useful. With a few extra minutes rest, I ran a 63 400 and then closed in 4:57 hurting but feeling like I could do more. Maybe it was hobble, maybe it was just a bad day. You are allowed to have bad workouts, just not two in a row. Time to rest up!

Workout today. 3 by 2 mile at intramural. Wheel took 20+ seconds onto our time compared to watches. Oh well. I ran 10:13, 10:13, then coach had us run one mile (4:56), sit an 800 out, and then finish the last 8 (2:25). That felt like a jog. It wasn't a breakout workout, but nor was it terrible. Felt great to be back on it.

PM: I ended up doing 12 miles. It was entertaining to watch the workout. I think I will enjoy being a coach someday.

We did mile-1200-800 *2, but coach had those of us who don’t have a spot locked down for pre-nats Run just one set. I wish I could say it was easy but it wasn’t. I started feeling hot in my hamstrings from the speed. My speed isn’t quite there yet. But I think if I had let the pack go by a second or two that I could have done another set. I ran 4:48, 3:26 and then 2:12 on the track.

First race in a BYU uniform! It was a perfect way to do it, at home on a beautiful fall day in Oregon with my family cheering me on, just like old times. The race was pretty physical and pushy at the beginning. I never saw anyone fall but I came pretty close. I decided last night to try to work on what happened last time and go the first lap, with after I got settled in just allowing myself to relax and be ok maintaining position or even getting passed. I didn't do a perfect job of that, as evidenced by a first mile that I think was about 4:45 or faster, but I was better than last time. I also would like to be more patient and not just pass people because I (barely) can a mile in. I will be able to use that energy more productively later in the race. Overall though I still felt like I was able to push it the whole race and finish strong the last 200 (another improvement from last race). 24:38 was my time, 60th place out of about 140 I think. There were good teams there. We didn't do as well as a team as we had hoped, but hopefully we can do better. Idk if I will be there, I was 12th on the team and we have a guy coming back from injury who might take my place at pre-nats. We will see. Great day overall, solid performance.
