Personal:

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.

I usually do a little over three just to be sure. Today's run was pretty good. I think the weight I lost on my mission is staying off which is good because that's going to be a huge help in tranfering over to the next level. I'm still hanging around 145 which is a nice drop from the 155-165 I was always at in high school. It just took getting sick enough that I lost most of my muscle! But especially for the 8k/10k I think it will help, I think I will finally be able to be as good at cross as I am at track and hopefully just better at both! Although I might put weight back on once I actually start training hard, my body is weird like that. I guess I will see. I'm supposed to get the summer training plan soon and I can't wait.

I get to increase my mileage!!! So I'm up to 4-5 miles per day, which is great! I'm probably going to make that just 5 miles each day haha. And luckily I've been helping build a walk way all day so I havent run yet, time for a good 5 mile run!

Still pretty drained from yesterday and sore too, but I got out and ran 5 miles, it was hot! I love taking cold showers after my runs.

My leg was hurting this morning, around the fibula, so I was a little worried, I'm pretty darn sure it's not a stress fracture because it would be really sad if my body got one on like 3 miles a day. I think I might have hurt my muscle somehow from stretching it out too much yesterday trying to get rid of the restless leg discomfort. So I'm pretty sure it's just an upset muscle but I'm a little cautious, I will ice it and I think I will have to just play it by ear tonight when I run.

I've been doing really bad at posting my runs! This day I did 5 miles, mostly on grass, it felt good although the grass was really wet and it kind of got the soles of my shoes wet so they were sliding around.

Ran in milcreek canyon, I ran up for 20 minutes and then turned around but I guess I made a wrong turn somewhere because I ended up at this campground I camped at when I visited Utah when I was little. That was weird, but then I found the main road and ran up the canyon until I got to the starting point. It ended up being a little longer than I had planned, but it was an adventure! Also no pain in my leg today so that's a good sign.

Good run today with the team, a little more mileage than I was supposed to do but I had a good time, it was great to be at an Alta cross country practice again!

I did a 12x1 minute hard run with 2 minutes recovery, but after 9 reps I realized I was 2 miles away from my house and was supposed to leave for work in 15-20 minutes so I just ran home as fast as I good. I got home in 11 minutes so pretty good! Then I showered really fast and got dressed and I still got to work 15 minutes early so I was pretty happy with that.

4.3 in 28 minutes. So that's like a 6:30 pace I think. So that's good!

There is a reason why Tayte Polleman is so good. I ran with Tayte up at Brighton, not sure how far it was, but we also climbed up Milly, that was really fun and difficult. Good day and I'm tired haha.

Ran with the team today, a warm up 1.5 miles and then a hard 1.5, and then did it again to cool down and ran another.5 miles in the parking lot to get to 5. There are some fast guys on this year's team! My butts gotten kicked the past couple of days haha, but that's how you get faster, it's been fun, don't want to see my time at the Sandy classic but it will be a lot of fun!
