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 

XC 4 mile: 21:14

Road race 10000: 32:23

Road race 5000: 15:37

Indoor mile: 4:31 (4:26 converted) 

Indoor 3000: 8:39 (8:29 converted)

800: 1:58.53

400: 51.84h

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

I think if I stay healthy and consistent in early 2019, I will finally be able to put up some solid times and finally get on the BYU team for good. I'm not sure if I'll be best at the 1500, 5K, or 10K, but whatever one of those I run I want to qualify for NCAA regionals. 

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.

Well, there could be ways to gain more confidence the day before the first practice. But I doubt the Israelites were feeling very confident when their army was reduced to 300 prior to fighting a huge army. Today I ran 10 miles and it wrecked me. Nevertheless I had some nice tender mercies along the way. It was boiling hot on my first real afternoon run since coming home and I think the biggest thing was that I had eaten pretty recently. At first I started feeling more and more sluggish before I got downright sick. I stopped twice to kneel down and relax in the shade a bit. One of the times a guy stopped and offered me water and a ride. I accepted the first. Later on I was able to stop again and throw up, which finally liberated me from having to do a mega slow jog. What I learned: HYDRATE more than I have been, especially in this dry climate, and don't eat after 12:00 tomorrow!

Well, it's been a good bit of training since I got home- 1058 miles to be as accurate as possible. I can't wait to see how I do!

Apparently we needed to have gotten a physical within the last 30 days in order to run with the team. So it wasn't gonna happen today. It was just me and another kid named Denver who has a brother named Cade Perry on the team who Isaac deemed worthy of trying out. Kind of reminds me of 2014 with Tanner and I. But I had gone with my plan and hadn't eaten since 12 so thankfully Denver decided to come do mile repeats with me. We went to the intramural field and ran 5 of them with 3:30 rest in supposedly about 5:10 average but I felt like I was running circles around him (not cuz he's slow, but because he had the GPS and I had no idea where to turn and stuff. The only time it was easy was when I was behind him but I was almost always on his shoulder, side by side, or in front).

Felt really good to be running with the guys again. You can run 10 miles and yet feel so relaxed (TBH it was barely under 7 minute pace and on flat, but still- it felt easy). And tomorrow we go to hobble creek! Andiamo!!!

What part of my body did not hurt today? My eyelids? My fingernails? Haha. We ran up hobble creek canyon. I was over ambitious and went out too hard. And I paid for it. It was super hard, I felt awful at the end. The good news I suppose is that I ran 48:57, which is a PR even though its early season. Hopefully I can run smarter next time and maybe even break 47. Today was also my first day of weights. It felt good to be back.

Felt a little better today. We ran pretty slow to recover from our tough effort yesterday. I still have a stomach ache but hopefully by tomorrow I'll be ready for a strong effort again.

I also did 5 miles in the morning.

15 miles on a rocky trail in Spanish fork. My legs felt a little beat up. Thankfully tomorrow is a day of rest before we workout Monday!
