I ran for Alta high school and was trained by Coach Murphy, he is a great coach, one of the best there is. I ran for Southern Utah University for a year or two. I am currently a doctoral student at Bowling Green State University studying industrial organizational psychology. Right now my main goals are to stay healthy and run consistently.

Ran a 2 mile warm up and then did 77 pushups in 2 minutes and 90 situps in 2 minutes. Then ran 2 miles on the layton track, the astroturf just destroys my lungs and I didn't feel like I could breathe much at all after the first 3 laps. Some combination of driving 30 hours the past 2 days, losing fitness, and the astroturf resulted in a 13:30 2 miler lol. Oof. Well I'm getting back on cingular so my asthma and that will help. And my 3/4 weeks of finals are over so training should get better. Feels like I might need to get my lungs checked out on a deeper level though.

Finals are over and I'm just about done with my thesis draft. I saw some fitness channel dudes do the army fitness test and decided to try it out, the perfect score is 71 pushups in 2 minutes, 78 sit ups in 2 minutes, and 2 mile run in under 13 minutes.

For push ups I got to 74 and couldn't do anymore with 10 seconds to go so I just called it. 2 minutes really isn't long to get in 78 situps but that was easier than the pushups, I got 80 there. The run was actually pretty painful for me today with a 12:53. Obviously not on my legs, but my lungs felt terrible. I guess that's what I get for letting my running go to crap when the semester really picked up.
