Personal:

Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

AM-41 minutes on the bike.  It was hard. 

PM-9 miles on the alter-g.  About an hour.  Felt good, got up to 85%, so that's progress. 21 mnutes of biking after.  Got my heartrate up to the 170s for the last few minutes of biking, and then I felt exhausted the rest of the day.  I've also been a bit sick the past couple days, so I might take tomorrow a bit easier.

AM-Felt super sick after the run yesterday. The trainers advised me to try the alter-g for a couple miles and if I still felt I couldn't workout then to rest. After mile 2, I felt better and ran up to 10. I ran it all in the 90% weight or higher, and ran the last quarter mile at 100%. That quarter mile felt really heavy, but I had no pain in my sacrum, so while I may not be used to running, my sacrum is at least improving.

AM-5 easy miles with Talem. 

PM-5 easy miles on the treadmill, 5.25 on the underwater treadmill.  I would have kept going on the treadmill, but I'm playing it safe.  The alter-g hurts my calf and quads just as bad as the regular treadmill, so I just did half on the normal treadmill today.

12 miles in St. George at 5:33 average. Way too quick. Started at 6:14 then picked it up. I wasn't trying to go quick initially, but after it just getting quick, I started having fun with it, before eventually slowing it down.
