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
5000: 14:23.1 (Mike Fanelli Invite 2019)
Indoor 3000: 8:39 (@ Weber State indoor Track is 8:21 converted)
Indoor mile: 4:21 (4:17 converted, I ran this in practice lol)
Road race 10000: 32:23 (alt)
Short-Term Running Goals:
Stay healthy and consistent over the next few months. Run sub 14:10 at the SF Distance Carnival on March 30th, get on the BYU track team, then travel again and qualify for regionals/run sub 14 in the 5K.
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.
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.
Left leg felt pretty good- started feeling some pain in my right Achilles! Uh oh. Maybe it's because of the way I switched doing my heel drops. I found another way that doesn't put stress on either Achilles to raise my other foot.
Still some old tightness in the left Achilles and a bit of fresh pain in the right Achilles. Interesting to note how taking a day off (Sunday) seems to not help at all at this point. Maybe quitting running cold turkey isn't what I need.
