Goal Type:

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.

Total Distance

Today I got cut. Bummer. There are reasons why I would keep myself but also reasons I would cut myself if I were coach. Now my plan is to work and build fitness through the end of October, take a week "off", and then start getting ready to roll by December when there will apparently be one spot up for grabs. Hopefully I can run a fast mile by then. 

I went home and came back to run 1k repeats on the intramural field. Isaac wouldn't tell us how many we were doing (idk how I feel about that) so it hurt for sure, but I wasn't redlining like I normally do on workouts. Perhaps that's a good thing that will prevent burnout. Anyway I ran 3:08, 3:09, 3:06, 3:09, 3:08, 3:08, 3:09, 3:03 with 1:40-2:00 rest.

At BYU they have a "farm team" for guys not quite good enough to make the team yet. We don't get to train with the actual team but it is good to have training partners and a coach (who is an assistant coach for BYU). Thanks for the encouragement!
