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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Race today. Positive side was that I won the race and had a nice kick at the end. Feels great to be able to race despite the bone problem. Solid PR. However, going off of time I was our 6th man today, and we had a bunch of guys right in that range (like 5 through 11 I think) plus a couple others that didn't finish the race and would have been there as well. But there was a big gap behind our fourth man, and I don't think we'll beat NAU in March unless someone really steps up. I hope someone does, but all I can do is keep training and try to stay healthy in case it's me. Also- maybe I need to run with more confidence because at 6k my mental state was not good. I was hurting (which is very normal) and didn't have a lot of confidence to take the lead or anything. I just hung on until literally the last minute.

Cold day at Kiwanis. I was quick to think that I wasn't feeling very fast on our 800s (I ran about 2:31-2:33 on each of them, although they were long), and was a little frustrated by that, but I should just be grateful that I was able to work out! I had my achilles taped today. Hopefully I can get back up to full speed. Coached pulled me after 5 reps.

Meant to go really slow today for the achilles which was pretty tight last night. Thankfully I felt a little better for most of the run (although I did feel some tenderness and pelvic sensitivity toward the end) and ended up gonig 6:19 pace, going a touch faster on the way out when it was downhill of course.

Race day! I went out in last place. I thought I was going a good pace! Like seriously, if you end up doing 67s, isn't a 67 first lap ok? Haha. I should probably work on getting out better anyway. I'm actually not sure of my splits. I kept hearing like 69 cuz they would time it from the first person of the second group. Felt pretty good until right about one mile. It was on that 400 that I distinctly remember starting to feel bad. I thought I hit one mile in about 4:32 which was on target, but I didn't think I'd be able to speed up enough like I had intended. For the next several laps I was hanging on for dear life. If you watch the video, you can tell I was off the chase pack. I literally didn't feel like I could make up the few meters without overdoing it. And this is only my second track 5K but I remembered the mistakes from my first one, and I was not going easy. It was hard all the way after mile one. I reached a turning point around 2 or 2.25 miles though because I realized that although I was hurting, the hurting wasn't unbearable. So I was able to keep grinding. I remember seeing 13:13 with a lap to go. Knowing we had hit previous laps in about 52 (I thought I had heard that) I thought I might have a shot at sub 14. I ran so hard and felt like I threw myself across. Did it! 

I was wearing the new dragonflys. They felt really springy and good. Its hard to feel good about yourself because idk how much slower I would've been without them. Last year I would have been No. 41 in the NCAA, but a better comparison might be next year to see what a 13:59 would rank me. Anyway, good race. Really exciting to be part of something so special- we had three guys break 13:30 which should be unbelievable but it's not cuz I know them. All 9 of us ran 14:10 or faster.

Holy smokes! To think how far you've come, man. It's been fun to watch from the distance.

Why stress about the shoes? The difference for me between my favorite pair of spikes and flats is a few seconds per mile, and both are better than the spikes I had in 2000. Shoe tech will continue to improve, but it's still your legs carrying you around the track. You're a sub-14 guy now.

I think I can officially say that I am not one of those people who bounces back super quick from hard races. I felt ok at first doing indoor mile repeats. On the third mile I started feeling kind of juiced, so I'm glad coach only had us do 3. The pace didn't feel too hot, I was just tired. 4:38, 4:37, 4:37.

The workout went well, so either I felt good or they felt good, or probably a little of both haha. 9:53, 9:41, 9:34 were the splits, although idk if they were a full two miles. 5 min recovery.

Raced in the late morning. Was stressed beforehand because my wife was going into labor, also didn't get a good sleep at all for the past few nights, but the real reason I felt like trash was my stomach hadn't digested everything and I was dry heaving / wanting to throw up. Thankfully I actually just felt ok without puking because it was also hot outside and fluids were important. I made a goal to be top 10 the night before and got 10th place. Now I'm a dad too. Big day!

10 by K. It wasn't wheel measured so it may have been short. Also I was wearing flats. I just still feel tired. Its frustrating because I have been getting good sleeps recently, so I want my legs to feel normal again. I know that when they feel normal I will be good to go. I pulled it after 6 because trying to keep up with the pack was pushing me farther than I wanted to go. 2:59, 3:01, 2:59, 3:00, 2:58, 2:59.

NCAAs. Weird day because it was very warm, but so windy that I was freezing in the morning. Our women won which is absolutely incredible of them. Then we stepped up to the line. We started out with the wind at our back and running downhill. So it was going to be blazing fast. I just did not feel comfortable going out any faster than I did- 2:47 through the first kilometer, in about 240th place. Yep. Clayson was just ahead of me which was a little concerning but nothing too serious yet. Turns out at the time we were doing great as a team (in the lead through the first couple kilometers). I passed people pretty fast, but not as fast as I needed to. And it was disappointing as the race progressed to hear people still yell out that we were like 140th or so. At a certain point, I passed Clayson and eventually came up on Aidan AND Elijah. I realized that TWO of us would be scoring, which is when I realized our team wasn't doing so hot. The race progressed; I actually did pretty well up the hills. 8:50 at 3k, 15:18 through 5k. I was in about 100th by 6k, and that was the one split I didnt move up in place. My kick at the end wasn't stellar, and it was dissapointing because I saw like 25 people within 15-20 seconds of me at one point, so I wished I could catch them, but didn't. Anyway I saw myself catching Jackson Mestler and almost got him. 83rd and our third runner because one of our top 3 basically passed out with 400 to go. Tough day. Hopefully things go better from here. Congrats to the other Utah teams who did very well, and NAU who is a better team than us right now, hands down. I hope this fall my teammates can bring home some more hardware. Also- Mantz never gets on the blog these days, but he WON. First American in over a decade (back to Galen Rupp). That's absolutely amazing.

Good job despite the challenging course and race conditions. I have really loved your race reports over the past few months. It makes me miss my days of running in college. I was not at your level, but the times I had with my teammates are some of my fondest memories. Congrats on the race and your new baby girl!

Really nice job. I was tracking the race as it went along (unfortunately couldn't watch from work, but live splits were the next best thing). 83rd overall at NCAAs is pretty darn studly. Looking forward to watching your continued progress.

PM: 5 miles before we went to an Indian place to celebrate Sarah's birthday and graduation. On the way to my brother's apt afterward, we saw someone taking grad pictures. Its crazy to think we are graduating. Amidst all the other life events, I haven't thought about it at all.

Workout today. Actually felt pretty good, nice and in control. We ran on the indoor track because people thought it was too windy outside. 2:11, 2:13, 2:11, 2:10 for 800 and 62, 60 for 400 w/ 3 minutes rest each time. I'm just grateful that after 2 weeks of break, I hopped back in and felt fine. I feel like 2 weeks optimizes physical and psychological rest while also maintaining fitness.

AM: 5 miles. Note that I ran this pretty fast, and using some calculations, started doubting that the turnaround point on my classic morning run was accurate. When I mapped it out, it looks like indeed it was a little short. So I need to definitely go the majority of the way to the curve before turning around. I still ran like 6:40 pace this morning though. 

PM: 8 miles. Today I found out we won't be able to attend one of the races we had planned on in April. That gives me ONE shot at sea level to get a regional qualifying mark, in about a month. That is kind of dissapointing, and puts the pressure on for that one race. But a) I stand by my decision and the reasons for which I made it (I do feel like my body was telling me to take a break) and b) I am no stranger to high pressure races. There were probably three or so XC races where my ability to travel to the next race depended on me performing well in the current race. So I need to not sweat it and trust that I will be able to perform well when it counts, even though I've never run a track 10K before (which is what I hope to be able to run).

Don't think it reached 70 degrees but it felt like running in the summer. I worked out with the pro group. I decided to try to hang with them for as long as I could rather than go off of feel (which is not really my style, so I thought it would be good). I dropped off at around 2.5 miles. Hit 3 miles in 14:55ish I think? 25:10 overall for the five miles. The last couple hurt pretty bad. It wasn't the normal lake loop fyi, it was two shorter loops.

Ran harder than I wanted to to make it back in time for conference (just over 6 minute pace again), and felt sore hips and a somewhat sore achilles. I will appreciate having the weekend off.

Workout. Felt kind of gassed doing the two mile tempo (9:46, not wheel measured). Then we did a mile in 4:34. Then an 800 in 2:12. Then I decided to just run 1200 in 3:25. Wish I had finished that. Overall not bad considering I felt tired.

Lake loop tempo. Did a different route this time, it was an out and back, so hard to compare times. We started slower and that made it feel a lot better. 25:23 for 5 miles. I was just glad my Achilles tendo felt ok!

I wasn't feeling the best before this workout, but I have to say, I was excited to hear what we were doing. Anyone who calls themself a 10K runner should love 20 by 400 w/ 30 seconds rest. We alternated directions every 5 laps which was nice. I felt like it did a good job preparing me for a real 10K. If I learned anything, it is to just get into a rhythm running 69s or 70s depending on how I feel, and not go much faster (even a 65 lap could take it out of me and make things worse for several laps). I ran 69, 68, 68, 68, 68, 69, 69, 70, 68, 68, 68, 67, 67, 67, 67. That was all the laps my watch could hold but afterward I probably ran 67-68 per lap with a 66 and 64 for the last two I think.

PM: 8.25 miles. After practice I found out I have had a high risk COVID encounter. I am pretty frustrated about it, but am grateful I got vaccinated when I did. Also, I would be super ticked if this happened before Fresno. As it stands, I should be able to return and run the BYU race next weekened...granted that I don't develop symptoms. Right now I just have to wait it out and not let my mind play tricks on me whenever I have a cough.

Bike path miles, windy day but only 25% was into wind. 4:47, 4:43, 4:39, 4:46. 5 min rest.

Lesson learned:

go for a walk before running

you probably will never be that good without being on a team.
