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 did very well on this workout in which I ran two miles in 4:51 and then 4:53, I'm definitely not just coming back anymore, I'm moving forward! And I still have so much room to improve, just barely starting speed and I'm still no where close to the mileage I want to be at in a year, I'm going to be flying!

I'm at about 9 plus the warm up right now, well today I went 8.5 with Jake, pretty tired from yesterday, I took an ice bath and that was pretty fun haha.

Traveling guys and coaches are gone for Griak so I ran with Jake today, we did 9 miles and averaged 6:21. It was windy but it actually felt really easy, like around mile 5-6 I didn't know what pace we had been going and it felt like maybe 7:00 or 7:20 and so I asked Jake and he said we were going 6:05! So yeah easy but fast too! Took an ice bath when we finished too, it was a lot less painful than last time but still unpleasent haha.

Felt like a speed workout today so I ran 400s with Jake, I felt good and ran the splits I wanted to. Jake's has been running so fast recently I wouldn't be surprised if he's one of our top 5 guys. I've also been improving steadily and I'm really feeling like at our home meet in two week I can take top 10.

10 miles to finish another solid week of mileage that doesn't feel nearly as high as it is. I ran with Mike for the first 7.5 but he wasn't feeling well so he went home and I did a little more on my own, coming back from my little loop I passed this dinner thing, not sure who it was for but it had ice cream, it was really good ice cream, so that was another boost to the day. We went easy today but I picked it up the last couple miles. Oh yeah, I hit a deer with my car on the way home from true t bird night friday, that was exciting, theres a new dent in my car. But seriously I couldn't have even done anything, I saw the first deer and I slowed down to let it pass and then the next one comes out of no where and runs straight into my car as I'm slowing down, it was fine though so whatever. I'm getting into really good shape, I'm way faster than I was when I raced BYU so I think I will surprise some people at color country in 2 weeks.
