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.

Workout today since varsity is running Notre Dame on Friday. It was pretty quick and good. 3 mile warm up, then a "1600 meter breakdown" with like 4 minutes recovery. I finally got Spencer Hanson's flats to wear and they felt GREAT at Kiwanis park. He's letting me keep them which is awesome because every grass workout will go better now that I am less weighed down. I ran 4:54 for the mile, 3:41 for the 1200, 2:18 for the 800, and 68 for the 400. I didn't want to look like a tool and destroy that last 400 because we all were told to not go for it but I could have run 62 or 63 even with the hill that was there. It felt really easy and good. 4 mile cooldown.

10 miles at 6:20 pace. Definitely my fastest easy day ever but it was alright. My abs were burning from weights yesterday but we did more core anyways. 4 strides. IR

3 mile warm up, then a fartlek on ROAD! I was so excited to be off the grass that I sort of forgot it was going to be hard haha. It was a 10-5-3-2-1 fartlek with equal rest after each rep except after the first one, where we only got five minutes (so our rest was 5-5-3-2). I don't want to tell anyone this because they all ran like 9 flat 3200s in high school, but if you convert for altitude I PR'ed in the 3k on the 10 minute segment! I was about three seconds back from exactly two miles, which means I went through 3k in 9:22. Converted for altitude that's like a 9:12 so that's cool I guess. Didn't do very well on the five minute part, I ran one mile exactly. The three was better and the two better than that, and I felt very controlled leading the final one minute segment (varsity is at Notre Dame). I probably was able to do that because of all those suckish all out 400s we used to run in track. 3 mile cooldown, weights. IR

I knew from the start that today was going to be a mental battle. Since tomorrow I'm leaving for General Conference at 7:20, I decided to preserve my sleep by running long today, which worked out OK anyway since we worked out on Monday and Wednesday. The problem is that this was the first time I've run on my own since I've been here, and it is seriously SO nice to be able to run with a pack. Luckily I ran into Ben Johnston (who is transferring to Utah State) and a kid named Scott who used to be on the team, so we ran together for four miles or so before they turned around. Unfortunately the first four miles are always the slowest that wasn't too helpful. However, I surprised myself by being able to get into a really nice rhythm on the way back, and I got a PR of 88:28! That's 5:54 pace! To do that on my own was pretty cool. I did 6:12s on the way out and 5:36s on the way back (remember the uphill is on the way out).

Set my alarm for 5:20 this morning... I should've known a run wasn't gonna happen. Oh well. I ran tonight. Since I wasn't running with anybody I ran faster than I should have, high 6:20s pace. IR/T10/IP
