Goal Type:

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)

Mile: 4:07 (converted from 4:12.06 at altitude; also converted by NCAA to 3:48.8 for 1500)

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

10000: 29:57 (West Coast Relays 2021)

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.

New shoes felt good. 12 miles, first two with Sarah. Did a windy but sweet run in Spanish Fork almost up to the cross.

Those new shoes again felt good. Maybe I need to go through these shoes quicker. I did 14 minutes of 1 on, 1 off. Really chill, I just have taken a while to find my speed again.

Tired today. Yesterday afternoon I went for a 24 mile bike ride up Hobble Creek. the 1000 foot elevation gain was nothing compared to the brutal wind (20 mph according to my phone but likely with higher gusts) that I had on the way back. I got a ton of stuff in my eyes and on the bike trail was going like 7 minute mile pace. Yikes. I woke up tired this morning and it was windy and supposed to storm so I did the whole run on SF river trail. I was tired but not too tired to notice the cool new parts of the trail I was discovering. SF is a cool town. 

Didn't mean to go 6:09 pace but I guess I did. I was just trying to get it over with.

AM: 10 miles. Found a way that was a little flatter. Knee felt better but not quite to run hard.

Ran up the hill of death (400 feet elevation gain really quickly) and past a really nice golf course onto the forest road I had wanted to run. Turns out I think I went on the wrong road but it was still really nice out there.

RoxyAnn! It was supposed to rain but didn't. I went up it pretty quick but wasn't trying to run hard so I ended up just doing 6:47 pace.

11 very hilly, very wet miles in Brookings, Oregon. It kind of reminded me of running in Hawaii. Just wet, humid, not super cold air. I actually ran this in two parts, as I had a job interview at 8:00. The interview went well. Then I finished running.

AM: 10 miles in Mapleton. My knees were a little achy at the end, but it could have been a lot worse the day after driving 12 hours.

PM: 7.5 miles. Had some time to think.

Just went easy because of tender achilles' which was caused by my soreness and pain from the trip I believe. Felt pretty good though.

Felt pretty good but dehydrated. Thankfully I found a waterfountain that actually worked. About 6:14 pace. Interesting how your mind perceives things. I felt fast on the way out and slow on the way back but went faster coming back despite net elevation gain. Maybe because my runs always start our slow.

Thankfully, the rain got rid of the smoke and it was a nice grey run this morning. Felt good.
