I graduated from East High School in 2015 and ran for Southern Utah University for a couple years. In 2016 I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri. I also attended BYU-Idaho in 2019. I am currently living in Salt Lake City where I have access to the best health care that I need. I'm currently taking classes online through SUU.

AM: 2 miles easy

PM: Best 80% I’ve done. Decided to just tackle it today. We did a mile warmup then 2 laps on the track, then straight into the 80. Mile on the track, mile on the block lap, mile on the track. First mile was 5:45, then just tried not to let the gap Morgan had on me get much bigger. The last mile was a struggle but I did better at working through than I did in my race on Saturday. Finished with 18:52, that’s a 45 second improvement. Then to the hill over the overpass and did whistle hills, 3 sets of 30, 35, 25. Worked hard on those too. Best workout I’ve had in a long time. 

Then got some really disheartening news. I might have the beginnings of a stress fracture in my thigh. Nate’s leaning towards inflammation of the periosteum but I’m going in for an X-ray tomorrow just to make sure and will get those results on Monday. It’s gotten progressively worse and while I was rolling out my hamstring I felt some sharp pain in my thigh up on top. Quad muscles seem fine, pain is deep. I’m really hoping it’s not a stress fracture, I might cry if it is. I’m finally starting to improve, I don’t want to be set back! But for now I’ll be biking and pool running, I can do a couple miles on the turf tomorrow if it doesn’t hurt it taking a couple minutes break between each mile. 

Weights later, mostly just did the core and upper body stuff.
