Running Accomplishments:

Pre-highschool: I loved to run and ran a few small local 5k's, but I did not run much on my own, besides junior high track.

Freshman year: I ran cross country and traied wih the team most of the summer.  When the season started I ran 3 races including Murray Invitational.  I got a huge PR there but after the race my foot hurt and I had a hard time walking. I ran on it for the next week but it was not getting better, so I went to a Sports MD and found out that i had a stress fracture.  Becaue of that injury I missed the rest of the season. Then I ran track for my junior high but did not do extremely well.

Sophmore year: I trained hard over the summer and I got a 3 minute PR on my first race.  I continued to PR, and had a good, injury free season. I ran indoor track an had some good PRs. I ran at simplot and had a great time. I did track and  ran some goodtimes and cut my time down by 15 seconds, I was hoping that I could get low 5's in the mile, but I had fun and was able to race at the steepechase and have a fun time through out the season. At sophmore region I was able to PR in the 800 and I missed my PR in the mile by 2 seconds.

Junior year: I ran a little over 500 miles over the summer, but wasn't improving how I would have liked over the season. I was not consistant at all and was sick for aboout 3 races. I finally had a good race at region and dropped a 46 second pr. Track went well, I went sub-5 in the mile finally and got a PR in the 2 mile pretty easily. I didn't really hit the times I had hoped for throughout the season due to sickness and I just wasn't in it.

Great way to end the year with a high milage day. I ran a mile warmup on the treadmill and then started my workout. I did a 5 to 1 stepping stone and then went back up to 5. So 5 hard 5 easy down to 1 then another 1 hard and easy then back up to 5. On the easy parts I did 8 minute miles and on the hard parts I was between a 6:23 pace and a 6:15 pace. I kept the incline on 2 the whole time until the last 4 minutes fast and the last 5 minutes fast, I put if up to 5 on those 2. After I did strides on the treadmill at its top speed for 45 seconds. After that I did a 1.5 mile cooldown out in the cold.

Easy recovery day today. I did 4.75 in the morning and 3.5 later tonight. I ran up to the cave and was next to the entrance when I heard a growl which I'm assiming came from a bobcat based on the tracks. I booked it out of there because I wasn't really in the mood to be eaten...

Me and Addison ran back up to the cave and ran around the trails up there before getting on canal road. We didn't realize how freaking deep it was becasue there was a nice path carved out until it stopped. We kept going on and decided it would be better to get off and run on the road.
