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.

Mile repeats from Calle Vista to Juanipero roads. Pretty hilly, but one way is quite a bit more hilly than the other. If it was flat, I probably would have gone steadily faster each rep, but the hills kind of screwed that up. Times were 5:24, 5:24, 5:20, 5:29, and 5:02 with 2 minutes rest between each one, and a 2 mile warm up and cool down (including the active recovery that's 10 miles).

5 miles in the evening.

NOTE: This run was actually on Monday. My week goes from Monday through Saturday, not Sunday through Friday. Hopefully I won't make that mistake next week.

6 miles morning and evening... I must have run with someone that day because I was only supposed to run 10 miles total. 3 by 30 second strides on my AM run.

I overate in the morning and felt like crap on my run, even though it was supposed to be easy. Ended up doing 5 miles morning and 4 miles in the evening because I didn't get around to running until like 11:00 PM.

I believe this was my highest mileage day ever.... In the morning I did a 10 mile fartlek (6 miles with 2 miles warm up and cool down). Fartleks are the easiest of my hard workouts, as I essentially run easy to moderate pace with 10 to 30 second bursts whenever I feel like it. I was exhausted and hungry and ran pretty poorly.

I ran 6 miles with a friend in the evening. Felt fine; no lingering exhaustion from earlier today.

5 miles in the morning. IR/IP/Strength

4 quick miles in the evening; I decided to go a little shorter since I am scheduled to be over my planned mileage this week and I want to be rested for my race and long run tomorrow.

In the morning I ran a Fun Run 5K for an Eagle Project. I wanted to win but was planning on finishing my long run miles immediantly afterwards, so in my head I thought of going "fast but not actually hard". The pace was slow so I went out in front far enough that I wouldn't have to kick if the guy behind me sped up at the end. The pace felt boring, monotonous, and vaguely uncomfortable but I was mad when I finished and my time was 22:01! I was definitely not running over 7 minute pace. I was glad when two other runners told me their GPSs had us running 3.75 miles, which would be 5:50 pace. That sounded much more accurate.

After grabbing a few bananas, I headed out to finish my mileage (including the warm up from before I figured I had done five miles), and the first half was straight uphill. It got pretty tough. The way back was pretty easy but I felt guilty that I stopped and picked blackberries for a couple minutes because my long run had already been broken up with enough breaks already. Oh well.
