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.

Got a little under a 3rd of a mile at 15mph and then was having asthma problems still kind of there from last night so I just did a little more easy running to finish my short run. I'm hoping to come back and do our home meet in October, but I will need to be up to 4-5 miles per day at least to do that. I'm doing high intensity low volume, feet don't seem to care how hard I run as much as how many steps I take. Hopefully will get back to the team soon.

2 miles in 10:50, sped up to 4:48 pace for the last quarter of the first mile and then decided I wanted a fast 2nd mile as well. High intensity low volume is my only way to get in decent shape right now, and with only a year and a half of college left, this is probably my last push to run some fast times in college. Really didn't feel bad at all, felt like I could have done another mile at that pace without trouble. So good stuff! Cooled down a little and then did weights. School is going very well, excited about research.

Started in 5:50ish and then dropped to under 2:30 for the first half of the next mile and cruised to 5:17 for the 2nd mile. Feeling alright, not sure if I'm going to race color country.
