Personal:

Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

AM-Long run.  Ran from USU's track to the canyon and back, around campus, then did some loops around the Steve and Donna Reeder Cross Country course. Spence Nelson, JD, Justin, and James were all there, so it was nice to catch up with them.

AM-14.25 miles with Clayton and Dallin.  

PM-6.25 miles wiht Dallin and Will.  We had a debate on which was better, cookies or donuts.  I'd say donuts, but it does seem like everyone in Provo likes cookies more.

AM-8x1000m at Intramural with 60 seconds rest.  It a bit wet, so I thought it would be slow, but it wasn't too bad.  We started as a pack at 3:07, 3:04, 3:03, 3:02, and then we were given the okay to let it be a bit quicker and went 2:59, 2:59.  After this, instead of doing 10, it became 8, so we ran 2:54 and 2:52.  Felt good and smooth.  

PM-6.14 miles at Intramural.  Lots of stops to time Will doing 6x1000m. It was hot.

AM-20.1 miles at Jeremy Ranch.  Saw three people ahead of us that looked quick at about 7.5, so Aidan Carlson and I did a fast 400 at about 62 to catch up.  It wasn't supposed to be that quick, but they sped up when we were coming.  It ended up being a bunch of high school athletes, but they just looked older and quicker.

AM-3.5 warm up, 6 mile tempo in trainers in 29:51, 3.75 mile cool down.  I didn't feel too great, and knew that I was the only one going 6 didn't help.  The group started slow, about 5:00, and it just felt a bit junky.  Yesterday I learned the season probably won't happen, so I signed up for a 10k in LA in two weeks.  This doesn't help my confidence.  

PM-5 miles with Garrett.

AM-3.4 mile warm up, 2x(mile, 1200, 800) with jog recovery for equal time, 3 mile cool down. My splits were something like 4:23, 3:15, 2:06, 4:27, 3:19, 2:08.  I just felt dead after the first set.  I actually never felt in rythym either.  Still a bit scared for the race in two weeks.  

PM-5 miles on my own.

AM-warm up, 6 mile tempo in cheater shoes.  Jake's watch was about 200m shorter than mine, so subtract 35 seconds going with his watch. Milly's was .06 or .07 shorter, so subtract 17 for his.    28:31 for my watch.  Felt good, this is good for my confidence, but might not be the best thing before a race next week. 

PM-5.3 easy miles.

AM-8x400 with 90 seconds rest.  This is usually one of my worst workouts.  With 4 of us (Jake, Milly, Clayton and I), we all only had to lead 2 of them.  I actually felt really good in all of them.  Started out at 59.6, and was around 60.0 to 60.3 on most of them.  7 was 59.6 again, and 8 was a 57.  Felt really good.  

PM-5 miles.

AM-11 miles.  I'm trying to add up mileage, and this may have been my only run this day.  I'm really backlogged on the blog. Weird if this was my only run.

AM-workout.  3 mile warm up, strides, two mile tempo in 9:50, and then I started to head to the track for the real portion of the workout.  As I was running, I felt a strong and sharp pain in my hip.  I went from running to the track, to running slow, to walking for a bit, to standing, to sitting in pain.  Lots of pain.  After getting it stretched, rolled out, and massaged, I still hope I can race this week.

AM-8 miles to be safe.  All was on the treadmill just in case.  Only a little sore.  

PM-5.1 miles easy.  Still felt slow and off. Ran in Sandy with the team for camp.

PM-2 mile shakeout at noon or 1.  I can't remember. 

Race-We raced at 9 or 10.  It was really late.  Warmed up well, just expected this to be like Stanford, where you just sit and hold on to the pack for most of it.  Well, it's been too long since I've been in a race like this, and I got a terrible start.  I was 2nd to last for the first lap and ran a 69.  For someone trying to average 67.0, that's a bad start.  After that I ran a 68.  Eventually I got in my groove, started passing people, and I caught up to Clayton after 4-5 66s.  We were 8:54 at 3200m, so that was on pace, but after a few laps of leading the chase pack (I was too far behind the front pack of Cheserek and Milly to make up the gap), I started struggling.  I'm not sure what it was, but I felt like crap.  At 5,200m, Zach Panning took the lead of our pack because I ran a 70(!), so I sat on him and tried to regain what I could.  We were 14:03 at 5k, which was not good because we were slowing.  at 6,800m, Panning made another move and I got passed by most of the pack.  I hung on, and with 400m to go, had enough to kick it in to run 28:07 and beat all but one from the pack.  It wasn't my best race.  I really didn't feel too great at all in the race.  I never had a pop in my legs or any feeling that I could get moving.  I'll take it, because it's a PR and there isn't anything else I can do about it, but it was a bit of a bummer to come all the way out to California and not 1. run the time I wanted and 2. not go with the leaders.  Good experience I guess, but it's the same mistake I make a lot in track.

AM-12.51 miles.  

PM-8.72 miles. It almost adds up.  Probably too far for 2 days after a 10k and a night of little sleep (early morning flight after the 10k + 10k gut).  Also, first day of school, and, as always, I don't eat enough.
