Short-Term Running Goals:

-Qualify for the 2024 Olympic marathon trials

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Run a few fast marathons. Grandma's, St. George, and Boston are on my target list. An Olympic Trials qualifier would be amazing. 

-Break stroller records? 

-Stay fit for a very long time. I believe what goes into making a competitive runner at age 60 is much different than age 20, just like what goes into making a good marathoner differs from a good sprinter. I hope that by taking care of my body, I can be very fast for my age as I get older. 

 

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.

Workout a Kiwanis. 4 by mile with 1:1 rest. People were feeling pretty tired from the race. I felt alright. Furthermore, I was stoked to only be running one loop around Kiwanis. I felt like it would go by in a breeze. Idk if the miles were accurate or not. On the one side, it felt way faster than my last workout here where I ran 5 minute pace. On the other side, I know how fast it feels to run in the 4:30s and I wasn't doing that. So maybe these times are about right: 4:51, 4:53, 4:55. 4:54. It did for sure feel hard though. Weights.

Really hard workout, in a new way. We did an 8 miles power run @ deer creek. High altitude, quite windy, and hilly as anything. Like, really hilly. At one point I felt like I was traveling at walking pace. It was hard, but much different from the hard of mile repeats. Capisci? I ran 45:41, or approximately 5:42 pace. Not bad.

Work went late so I did 11 miles alone. Very tiring in the wind. No strides becasue my achilles hurt (no surprise after a tough hilly run like yesterday).

Long run. Shorter than planned but I ran out of time before conference and I decided not to finish it later because my achilles is still a little sore. Turns out I ran about 6 flat pace. Oops.

Achilles felt better today. 6 by K. The team did 10 by K. I wish I could have done better. I finished well obviously. 3:03, 3:04, 3:05, 3:04, 3:02, 2:59.

I started to get sick yesterday. This morning I felt better, but I felt like I needed rest to heal. This morning I took a quick nap because I felt too cruddy to do homework, and I felt really tired. I continued to feel bad, but hoped that getting out and running would help me feel better. We got there just 35 min or so before the race started. So I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but at the same time, I always do. We planned to go out conservatively, and did. Will started to pull away and Aiden went with him. I felt like I accellerated at the end, but they were booking it and dropped me by 15 seconds. Its too bad that this is the race that determines who travels next week. Oh well. This lights more of a fire for me to perform at races like Danny Plaiter and to rock it in track.

Wasn’t expecting a workout today. That felt a little weird with food stuff. But it didn’t end up being too bad. I had mixed expectations after having a race, long run, and now workout within four days. We went to the intramural fields and ran 10:13 for 2 miles, 7:37 for 2400 (shoutout to fellow blogger Zack for leading this one like a metronome) and I started feeling really good on that one. I was surprised when coach told us to only run a controlled 800 on the last one. 2:25. Had a lot more in the bag of course.

We did a workout on the grass. Interesting how close everyone was together. One reason I am glad I am at BYU is that it is really hard to break away and train ahead of everyone. I would probably fit in with the general mediocrity of other schools if I went there. I also hope that we can continue to get better and that we will have more guys to train with soon who will help the pack get faster.

4:59, 2:16 (I led, too hard), 2:21. 4:56 (turning point- this felt good), 2:19, 2:16. Two and a half minutes rest on everything.

PM: 11 miles. No strides. Didn't feel super good, I think it was all the nuts I ate before I ran.

Helped out with the Cougar Run. Then I ran a long run with Will. He was hurting so we ran slow, like 7 minute average I think.

800s. 1 and 4 on track, the rest on grass. Time to recover for Thursday, the Michigan. It wasn't super duper easy but it was fairly easy compared to other workouts being in the second pack. I am glad to finally feel like I am improving in some way. The way I mean in this case is that I can run decently fast and not blow up. My speed is coming in as some would say. 2:13, 2:20, 2:17, 2:11, 2:15, 2:13. My personal conversion I would give based on effort is 3.5 seconds from grass to track.

Today was supposed to be the Michigan. Last night Clayson asked me to work out with him tomorrow instead. Turns out it ended up being good for me too, as my foot has hurt all day. Dustin put on a pad which made it feel way better. I also wonder if my Pegausus’ have better support than my tennis shoes.. Hmm. I should be good for tomorrow though!

The Michigan. Two minutes rest or less on each rep. You know its a hard workout when the tempo miles feel like the recovery. 

4:37 track mile, 5:08 grass tempo mile, 3:27 track 1200, 5:09 grass tempo mile, 2:12 track 800, 5:06 grass tempo mile, 59 track 400, 4:59 grass tempo mile. 

I was really nervouse becasue of the way this went the past two times. Turned out to be painful but not too bad. By then end I was doing the track stuff alone but the grass with the guys.

Morning run. My foot was hurting, plus yesterday was the Michigan, plus my season will likely be over on wednesday so I only ran 13.6. Averaged 6:30s overall. I ran the first mile or so with Sarah. That was the farthest we've ever run together haha. My foot hurt until about halfway. Time to recover.

Didn't expect a legit workout today. It was still pretty chill. Mile 1200 800 at intramural on the first frigid workout day of the year. I led the first one behind Clayton in 4:47, then did a 3:32 and 2:15. It was over quick. Didn't feel amazing.

Cold day for a race. As a group we have been super close in workouts, so I knew the pack would be big for a while. I don't remember quite when who fell off, but I was right that it was competitive to the end. I wish I could've brought home the tots for myself and team white, but its all good. 5:02 pace. The bittersweet part is that afterwards I went into the trainers and they said I have the makings of a stress reaction. Its a miracle its still just that because the first pain I felt was before doing the Michigan, a long run, another hard workout, and a race over the course of six days. So now I have to cross train. I hope that will fix it ASAP. I think it will. (Obviously nobody wants an injury but the nice thing is that it was at a very convenient time).
