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.

Today was another nice 4 mile run, it felt really easy. I am really enjoying these nice easy workouts, but I am also really excited to do some threshold miles when the time comes. I have a really good feeling going into this season and some big goals.

Today was really hot but I guess I will have to get used to that. After the 4 mile run we did push ups, sit ups, box jumps, planks, and lunges. It was a good day.

I walked all of it besides maybe 100-200 meters that I jogged on the snow because I was pretty sure my bones wouldn't be stressed on snow because its a really light surface. I've been taking time off for a stress fracture that just doesn't seem to want to go away. It hasn't been hurting when I walk on it or run on it for weeks and didn't hurt at all on the hike but when I press the spot where the fibula stress fracture was, its still been hurting and it was getting worse when I started running at the beginning of June. I can barely feel it anymore though, I have trek on Monday-Wednesday and I will hike 3 miles Monday, 4 miles Tuesday and 3 miles Wednesday. I really hope my leg will be completely healed by the end of that so I can start training again.

I went on a 2 mile run today, I wanted to be sure my stress fracture was gone before I ran again now that the season is getting really close. I ran at the Brighton track, the first mile was to fast so I slowed down the 2nd mile, I didn't want to run too many miles my first day back, so I went home and biked 4 miles. I put the 4 miles as just 2 more because it takes me about the same amount of time to run 2 miles as it does to bike 4. My legs felt pretty good, my lungs hurt, and my heart felt great. Tomorrow I will meet my with my team to run. If Coach Murphy sees this, should I run 3-4 miles tomorrow or just do what the rest of the team is doing?

4 easy miles at the Brighton track, I had stomach cramps but the only way to make those go away is to keep running. It was a pretty nice run, I'm going to try and figure out how to tell my tennis practice squad I can't practice tomorrow because I need to do a 2 mile time trial with my team.
