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: 8:21 (@ Weber State indoor Track converted from 8:39.28)
Mile: 4:13.9 (converted from 4:18.99 at altitude)
Road race 10000: 31:46 (alt)
800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)
Short-Term Running Goals:
-Be really fit by early September and make the team even though I’m getting married in August.
-Not burn out early in the season
-Be On the team that wins nationals
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.
The good news is my IT band was really chill today. The less good news is I did my 6 mile tempo at only 5:44 pace. This mirrors a lot my 2014 season. Back then I went a while where I didn't get any faster. I'm not too concerned, some more mileage and fast running will put me right where I need to be.
13 mile long run. I did about 9 miles fine at 6 minute pace, so it seemed like it would have been a good one, until I felt an excruciating pain in my lower leg that caused me to walk. Later on I ended up being able to jog home. Yikes. Gonna do some research and learn about it.
