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.

Great workout today. It was hot outside but I didn't really feel it. I also didn't feel tired from the previous week. We went to the legendary intramural fields and did a 5K mostly alternating every 400 meters between "hard" and "recovery", which was still pretty fast- it was supposed to be in the 5 minute range, but 10 seconds per lap slower than the fast 400. I really liked the workout this time. I ran 16:25 for the 5K. Then we took a ten minute break and ran a 2 mile in similar fashion. I hit 10:22 for that one.

We did a 4-3-2-1 fartlek with 3-2-1 rest at Kiwanis park. Feels weird that this isn't my strength right now. I won't lie, the thought has run through my head: "Am I really a miler?" Then again, how many times since my mission have I run anything speed oriented? Not many. Oh well, time will tell. In my opinion it was just the right effort for three days before a race.

Someone once said in a flo track video something along the lines of: "the problem with setting high goals is that you get knocked down a lot". Honestly I shouldn't complain, I'm in pretty good shape for being just a few months off my mission running XC which I'm less good at than track. But, being me, I was kind of bummed haha. Oh well, back to the grind, hopefully I'll continue to watch my fitness improve during cross and get to the point where I can get some big PRs in track.
