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 

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)

800: 1:58.53

400: 51.84h

 

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.

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.

Two nice runs! Cold but I felt good all around on both. It also feels SO good to lift. I can almost feel myself getting stronger and I actually can see it in some places.

AM: I liked this workout because it made me tougher. It was really hard. I went with my friend Carmen to the North track early on a frozen morning with a bit of snow. It was 4 by (1600, 90 seconds rest, 400). The paces were supposed to be 3K and mile. 5 minutes rest. I ran (4:44, 67), (4:47, 68), (4:49, 68), and (4:49, 64). I seriously feel like I work out better in Provo. Still, I'm not sure after something like this that I have a very good chance of running 14:20 in less than a month.

PM: 5 miles. Felt F for fine.

10 miles on Coal Mine. I saw my brother Adam twice doing his fartlek. That was cool. The hills made it kind of hard per the usual. Core

AM: Track workout @ South. 12 minute tempo doing loops around the school. I had arduously planned it out so I knew just how fast to go so I could run 5:10 pace and not wreck myself for the second half. I did that just fine. Then I started on the track. I felt really warm, loose, and good. First one was barely over 65. Second would've been a 64 I think but I got kicked off at the end :( So I had to finish it just running around south. It is really hard to know how fast to go without being on a track, but thankfully I had already done two so I kind of had a feel for it. I think I would've averaged 64 or 63. Felt really good. 7 min between tempo and 400s, 90 secs-2 min between 400s, gradually progressing towards 2. It wasn't balmy, but the weather on Tuesday definitely took it out of me in a way that it didn't today. Then I went to Superior and did a strength yoga/ Pilates class with my mom. I'll have to lift tomorrow instead. It was tough. I was reminded how to do core workouts. 

PM: 5 miles on the treadmill. I seriously feel guilty on the rare occasion when I do this as if I am avoiding necessary pain related to being cold. But being cold doesn't make you faster last time I checked. And I wasn't feeling that or the hills tonight.

10 miles on the bike path and three strides. Another cold, misty, day, though I am grateful to be living in Oregon where 25 degrees is cold. Then I did weights. My form is still pretty bad on some of the lifts, but as I continue watching YouTube videos, I am confident I can improve.

And that's a wrap on my longest week ever. Ran the first five miles with Bryce. We were talking which was not great for my first run back at altitude lol. That combined with my lack of sleep maybe was why I didn't feel comfortable running like 7:10 pace. I feel like it may have been hard to not run and feel cruddy those first miles. Then he left and I was quickly able to increase the speed. I felt fine the whole way, only a little sore and achy. All in all I averaged 6:09s, probably a little faster than I should've been going. 

New weekly mileage record! Also, big plans in the works right now that I'll probably talk more about soon.
