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-5.25 with Talem

PM-10.5. Coach told me he wanted me to start doing workouts today. I was pumped, but then it was only the first and third of the mile repeats, and it was pretty slow, so it didn't really feel like a mile repeat workout. The first one was a warm up at 4:45, then I rested the next one, and ran with group 2 on the third one and ran 4:34. I'm happy to run that and feel fine.

AM-5.25 easy miles with Talem. 

PM-3.7 mile warm up, 10x1000m at intramural field.  First few were between 3:00 and 3:05. Then we started going down to 2:57, then 2:54 and 2:51 for the last two.  60 seconds rest in between them.  This workout gave me some good conidence coming back, but it did take a lot out more out of me.  2 mile cool down after.

AM-6 easy miles with Clayton and Brandon.  Clayton told us about the trials, where he had only a 3 week buildup and his trip to Puerto Rico to visit his parents. Great weather. 

PM-8 easy miles.  Planned a workout, but didn't due to the crazy snow and wind that came after our warmup, everyone decided easy mileage today would be fine.
