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.

Tried a new combination today, past the MTC and then instead of turning around, going on the business park loop. It's beautiful at this time of year. 3 strides.

Weird workout today. It was 10 by 600 with 2 minutes rest but Isaac wouldn't tell us before how many we were doing. Didn't really matter, cuz I lost track of how many we had done. Whenever you lose track of how many you've done, it means you are going easy. He had us running 1:46-1:48 and was pretty serious about it. It was good to run as a pack but I was getting super antsy. I would have rather been unleashed a little earlier to grind a bit. Numbers 8 and 9 we were allowed to go faster and we did them in 1:40. That felt good, it would have been a solid pace to do for the whole workout. But we only did two of those, so on the last when, Isaac had us stick as a group for the first 200 before letting loose. We went through in 32 high. I was pretty impressed with my close, probably sub 57. I finished in 1:29. That definitely means that even during cross season I'm probably in the best 800 shape of my life. Then I did weights in the ghetto weight room. Splits: 1:48, 1:47, 1:46, 1:47, 1:47, 1:46, 1:47, 1:40, 1:40, 1:29

Little over ten and a half miles. Felt my Achilles a bit so I didn't do strides.

My Achilles still hurt today. Thankfully, during the workout it was ok. I'm icing it right now and didn't do weights today. I'll be more careful tomorrow and not over push myself, but focus on recovery. Hopefully all will go well. I didn't feel quite up to snuff today, but I was just reading yesterday something by Alberto Salazar where he was saying we try too hard to be at 100 percent on workout days. A little fatigue (on workout days- not race days) isn't a problem. Anyway, it was a crazy workout though. 3 mile tempo run up around to the Mariott center and then back down and around (just under three loops total). Then we had a good bit of rest, like 9 minutes, and did an 800 and 5 by 400 with 90 seconds to 2 minutes rest. I ran 15:34 for the 3 mile, then 2:22, then Isaac had us cut down: I ran 68, 64, 63, 61, then on the last one he told us to show some heart and (I know it's cheesy but) that really got me through it just a hair under 59.

Uh oh... I started running and my Achilles' tendon said "no". Did an hour on the elliptical and my bike. Gotta get healthy!

I think I'm getting better. Hopefully I'll be ready to go by monday. But I wasn't today. 90 minutes on the eliptical.
