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.

The Bengals first playoff victory in over 30 years gave me the strength necessary to go for my first run since the surgery. I'm going to take my return slowly. I want to run 5-6 days a week but start low and build slowly. Might wait to run until I'm 8n colorado because the air quality here is really bad at the moment.

Ran on the treadmill again. Did 1.5 miles at 6:50 pace and then put the treadmill speed to 12 mph for about half a mile, it didn't feel as hard as I expected but I'm not sure if that was the treadmill malfunctioning or me doing well. I could have broken 5 for a mile if the treadmill was accurate though. Cooled down afterwards and lifted a bit.

Ran with Jake and jumped in for the first 4 of his 10 400ms and then 2 of the last 3. The first four splits were 69/70 (too fast, but felt great in the moment), 72, 76, 81. Then took a 5 minute break before running 72 and 74 for the last 2. I haven't been taking my asthma medication or I think I could have avoided the 81. Still felt good to get back out there. Asthma symptoms do feel a lot easier to work through and less devastating than before the surgery. Still don't feel 100% but breathing feels a lot more clear.

Little achilles pain the past couple days. Need to get back to daily calf raises and using my massage gun. Feeling kind of out of shape, I sped up to 6:00 pace for a little over half a mile and it felt tough. I want to get back to where 5:50 pace is sustainable for a long run.

Warmed up half a mile and then did 4 quarter miles and a half mile at 5:00 pace, quarter mile at about 8:00 pace between each. I ran 74, 76, 73, 71, 2:33. Felt pretty good for the first 2 or 3, the quarter mile felt tough and then the last rep was tough. Not quite as fast on the half mile as I would have liked, but I had to make a couple tight turns during it so was still probably decent.

Additional 2 miles walking with Becca.

Had to get my car looked at and ran to a local track while it was there. It's was an asphalt track and it turns out it's a little short. I ran 3x400m at 64, 60, 67 and then an 800m in 2:21. According to my garmin the track was more like 380 meters.

I think on a normal track it would have been 4/5 seconds slower per lap.

Ran a bit before a light gym day. I want to do a mileish time trial tomorrow. I'll so 4 laps at the small track near my house, hopefully in 4:40. Then I'll just keep running until my garmin says it's been 1 mile.

5.000.000.000.005.00

Warmed up a mile and a half and then did a mile time trial. Well, 4 laps around the short track near my apartment. I did 4 laps in 4:49, according to my strava it was .95 miles at 5:07 pace.

I took a full recovery and half a mile of jogging before doing a second mile at goal 5k pace, it took me 4 laps and about a quarter of a 5th lap to getto a full mile. My goal was 5:40 and I hit it right on the nose so that went perfectly. Idk what it is but my throat was really irritated today. I probably just need to get on a good schedule with my asthma medication.

Pretty good workout today though. On the BYU track in 2 weeks with spikes and competition I think I have good odds at running sub 5:00. Sounds like Jake might back out of BYU though, in that case I might just focus on the SIOP 5k the week after that. I'd really like to run 17:30ish for that race. My goals for this spring/summer were originally sub 18 5k and sub 5 mile, but the 5k is at sea level so I'm feel like I'm in pretty good shape. I think I might be a little ahead of schedule! Suppose we'll see in a few weeks.

AM- about a half mile at red rock

PM- Warmed up a half mile and started a mile repeat workout. Plan was to meet Becca over at walmart/planet fitness. I discovered the sidewalk doesn't connect all the way.

Workout went pretty bad. First mile was a struggle to get 5:40 but I managed it. Then I jogged half a mile for recovery. 2nd mile repeat was really tough. I ended up witb something like 5:55. Then I ran out of sidewalk and kinda gave up on doing a 3rd repeat. My body was feeling like crap today. But I got very little sleep and was in the car 5 hours today, and I probably didn't warm up enough- so I also picked a bad day for a hard workout. I'm kind of feeling like just doing an easy run tomorrow and then coming back and trying to redeem myself tuesday, but that might be a lot of days running in a row for my achilles. I'll take it one day at a time. Today disheartened me in terms of running a 17:30 in Seattle in 2 weeks. But I'm not entirely ready to back off of it just yet. I want to see if I don't have a better workout later this week before lowering my goal. Kind of in limbo with workout goals right now. I don't have any super exciting goals besides keep running without hurting my achilles and just lifting in general. The Spartan race in Colorado Springs seems like a good goal for me to focus on.

Very windy today, over 20 mph. Still wanted to get one more mile repeat workout in before the race.

Started with a mile warm up, but actually ran just under 7 minute pace for it. I did a couple strides and then started the first mile, I went out too hard, like about 5:00 pace. I tried to slow down to 5:40 pace, and I think I did because I ran 5:30 for the full mile. So if my first quarter was like 75 and the next three were 85s, that's 5:30. I need to really chill the first quarter mile of the race next week, going out like I did for today would probably kill my 5k.

Then I did half a mile recovery and low 7 minute pace and did another mile in 5:38 I think. It felt tough. Too be fair I'm at almost 6000 feet elevation and today was very windy. I think next week at sea level I can definitely run under 18 minutes, and sub 17:30 is a possibility.

Ran the first mile just under 6:00 pace and realized in the 30mph winds I wasn't going to breai 18, so I slowed down and let Jake lap me a couple times and then tried to push him to finish stronger the last couple laps.

Finally back on the blog, and trying to get back into a consistent running schedule. Been a wild past month. French Polynesia was an adventure, lots of really cool stuff.

It's nice to be back in bowling green, I love the track and xc course combo here. I'll come up to bowling green once or twice a week this semester and my goal is to get a run in every time I do.

I'd really like to run 1000 miles next year. This year I'll probably only get to 500 again... hopefully I'll be running 80-100 miles per month by the end of the year though. I should be around 60-70 next month and we'll see where things go from there.

Certainly a confidence building run, might run again tomorrow... would take it really easy if I do. Running on back to back days is typically not a good choice for my achilles. But if I want to get fast again it might need to happen eventually.

Ran in my new neighborhood for the first time, there's a perfect mile resedential street loop and our house is on a street that cuts through it. I foresee many good workouts in my future just in this neighborhood. My achilles was acting up a bit during todays run, I need to get back to massaging it and doing calf raises every day. Also a lot of work to do around the house... and a lot of work to do for school and such. It will be a really good fall.
