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.

Personal:

LDS. 20 years old. Rome Italy Mission 2015-2017.

10 miles up on the Y on my own since I had a science midterm to take this afternoon. Didn't do strides since I felt my achilles a bit on those steep hills.

Today I got cut. Bummer. There are reasons why I would keep myself but also reasons I would cut myself if I were coach. Now my plan is to work and build fitness through the end of October, take a week "off", and then start getting ready to roll by December when there will apparently be one spot up for grabs. Hopefully I can run a fast mile by then. 

I went home and came back to run 1k repeats on the intramural field. Isaac wouldn't tell us how many we were doing (idk how I feel about that) so it hurt for sure, but I wasn't redlining like I normally do on workouts. Perhaps that's a good thing that will prevent burnout. Anyway I ran 3:08, 3:09, 3:06, 3:09, 3:08, 3:08, 3:09, 3:03 with 1:40-2:00 rest.

The good news is that this was the first thursday workout in a few weeks that I felt like I wasn't running with the previous workout in my legs. It was also my first sub 60 400 since 2015 haha. It had to happen sometime. Unfortunately, I ended up getting out in front and was running almost all of the intervals on my own. I know if the BYU team was there they'd be hauling on this workout. So I can't get complacent. The good news is that I know how to train not only for XC on my own (summer of 2014 and 2017) but also was training pretty da solo in 2014 for track as well as 2015. 

We did 3 by 800-600-400 cutdown for 7200 meters total and a lot of rest (so we finished after 6:00!) I ran (2:27, 1:51, 66), (2:22, 1:45, 67), (2:17, 1:43, 66), (2:18, 1:40, 59). 4-5 minutes between sets and more than rest equivalent to the previous repeat during sets.

Morning: 5 miles. It was warmer than the last time I doubled and I went a lot faster. 

Afternoon: 10 miles. Didn't do strides because I felt my achilles.

I was busy this morning so I didn't run until the afternoon. With this in mind, and knowing what I ate throughout today, it's a miracle I didn't collapse. I mean, it's not like I had only eaten brownies, but you need good fuel and preperation to run 16 miles at sub 6 pace. I didn't get my pace exactly, but I am relatively confident it was faster than last week. Nice day to run in the canyon.
