NCAA Champ

Running Accomplishments:

High School:

I broke Alan Webb's HS mile record with a... well, if anyone is actually reading this, I guess I'll be honest:

XC 5K: 15:57

1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

3000: 9:18

College 

5000: 13:59.58 (UW Indoor Invite 2021)

Indoor 3000: 8:14 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)

Mile: 4:13.9 (converted from 4:18.99 at altitude)

Road race 10000: 31:46 (alt)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)

400: 51.84h

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

-Not get injured in 2020 by really taking care of myself and by not taking workouts too seriously

-Peak at the right time. It doesn't matter how slow or fast you are, it makes a world of difference to be peaking at the right time.

-If XC happens, run at nationals. If it doesn't happen, I'd like to be in sub 29 minute 10K shape. Hopefully we can do some good time trials. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Break age group American records or at least get into the top 10 by continuing to find time to train and taking care of my body in other ways, including by eating a healthy diet, long after most people have quit competitive running.

-Break stroller 10K and half marathon records when we have kids. 

-Run Boston pretty fast at least once. 

 

Personal:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I eat a whole food, plant-based diet, which I believe helps my running. I like chocolate shakes on sunday nights and I will always call the Pacific northwest home.

Tired, but glad my knee felt good. I had to sacrifice skiing today and doing my run on RoxyAnn to take care of it, but you've gotta do what you gotta do.

Unfortunately I probably can't double today cuz I am traveling home this afternoon. My last run in Oregon was a 5 mile tempo by the church. 5:08 pace isn't too shabby actually since you are almost always running uphill or downhill. My goal had just been to go faster than a couple weeks ago.

AM: 4 miles. 
 

PM: Workout. Relatively warm actually, like over 40 degrees. I'm surprised the snow hasn't melted yet in Mapleton. I did Mile-1200-800 times 2 with equal recovery. It was my first hard run back at altitude right after I had a cavity filled and I had already run this morning, so I didn't have high expectations other than staying healthy. I ran [4:43, 2:17 through 800, 2:19] and [4:43, 2:18 through 800, 2:18] on the bike path. It felt like it was supposed to feel.

10 miles in the morning because I accidentally slept in long enough that it wasn't too cold outside when I went running. Because of my gastroc strain, I am calling off my afternoon run.

Ran nice and slow, and pretty long, which made it the longest time I've ever run. Hopefully my gastroc feels better by monday.

5 miles prior to my class, then four after. My calf felt pretty good, especially before class.

Came to practice late because I was standing in line to get my textbooks for so long... glad it worked out! Really my only goal was to stay healthy. I didn't have time to really do treatment before the workout. We'll see how things feel tomorrow, but as of the workout today I was really pleased, my calf didn't feel bad. I did do the 400 on the grass to be careful. I really kept it under control today and felt good that it was the easiest Michigan I feel like I've done. A little ice on the course and wearing trainers might have slowed it down a bit.

Track 1600, 1200, 800, 400: [4:33, 3:25, 2:13, 63 effort) Grass 4 x mile: [5:05, 4:58, 4:54, 4:47].

Wow. My calf felt totally fine on the run today! Huge blessing. Also, it was so warm outside. Like 48 degrees. Loved it.

Pre race 800, 400, 400, 200, 200 in 2:12, 61, 61, 28, and 28 as I remember. Could have felt a little easier. Oh well.

Well, that was that. I was going for 8:22.5 which is 67 second pace and on-track with the continued improvements I want to make, but I am happy to have gotten a PR (8:15 conversion I think). I wore Victory's for the first time. My calves hurt after the race! I don't think they are terribly different from the Matumbos though. I was a little nervous/sick beforehand but felt fine during the race. I have another health problem I will mention more next week when I figure out what it is next week, but thankfully that didn't bother me either during the race. Looking forward to doing a cross race at a longer distance.

8 by k on a beautiful day at intramural. Just chilled in the pack, although I did speed up on the last one because I was feeling good. Eight just isn't that bad. (3:07, 3:05, 3:03, 3:03, 3:00, 3:03, 3:00, 2:56). 
 

Also, I saw the doctor today. We are getting an MRI so no certainties yet but I thought it was a hernia and turns out if it is, it's small. Plus it felt better today. So that's good news!

PM: 10 miles. Beautiful weather. Felt a little tired and sore in my adductor at times, including strides. Gotta be conservative tomorrow.

2 by 2 mile at Intramural field, but it was supposed to feel like we could do 3 reps. It was a good day to do a chill workout cuz I was just feeling pretty tired and trashy today. So I just fell in with the group and didn't ever "pull the trigger", just ran. So I could have done one more for sure but today wouldn't have been a good day for a race. I ran 10:08 and 10:00ish but that doesn't really mean much cuz the measuring wasn't official at all.

Lazy Friday has gone too far- I was part way into my run when I realized I was also unintentionally skipping class. Oops. I had also scheduled my MRI later in the day with the plan to go shopping afterwards, which would have meant skipping my other class! Just cuz I don't have to be in school in person today doesn't mean I don't have to be in school! Oh well. I ran home and made it in time for the second half of Stats, then I did the last four miles.

I'll admit that the past 24 hours have not been my favorite ones of all time. After thinking I had a hernia, I started feeling better and the doc even said he didn't feel a big lump. My hopes came crashing down unexpectedly last night when I got a text from my trainer that my MRI indicated I have a pubic bone injury. 
Ouch. 
Well, such is life, even when you're a senior in the best shape of your life. I haven't had a meeting with the doctor yet so idk what to do now really. I swam 64 laps in 79 minutes (including some short breaks)  mostly switching between freestyle, back, and breaststroke, and just the former two at the end. That's about 2 miles I think.

Things keep on changing. Today it looks like my season may happen after all. I'm trying to not get my hopes up. But hopefully I find out some good information tomorrow. 

AM: 1 mile swimming (32 laps in 38ish minutes)

PM: 60 min or so on the bike. It was really hard to keep at it and keep my heart rate up.

3 mile tempo on lake loop. We got to two miles at 10:00 and it was so easy. Idk how long I could have held it. But it doesnt matter, cuz then we turned around and I finished in 5:08 or so, and it was pretty hard. The wind was very strong. Oh well.
