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.

PM-6. This social distancing and running alone isn't enjoyable. Hopefully this virus is gone sooner than later.

AM-6 easy miles before class. 

PM-13.5.  Lots of stops that led to this feeling like a long run.  There were tons of people in the canyon.

AM-11 miles.  3 mile pickup, two of the miles were down the canyon. I planned on just doing a 2 mile pickup to get the legs moving and have some fun running fast.  After a mile, I decided to go 3.  I did it in 13:32, which was faster than I planned, but it felt good to push myself.  It was much needed as a mental break from the repetitive easy days.  

PM-10k up the canyon and around.  Felt good, it was really nice weather, especially compared to all the snow that came last week.

AM-13.1 miles up with canyon and back.  It seems that more and more people are just driving the canyon to get out of the house. 

PM-6 miles.  Ran on a trail for bit, and got yelled at for not giving the person 6 feet of distance for the fraction of a second that I passed them. Maybe I was in the wrong.

AM-6x1000m at 4:40 pace just to get the legs moving, with the last one being picked up to 2:46. Nothing too quick, just trying to add some variety to the easy mileage and hills.  Body weight exercises after.  Pushup max was 35.  Pullup max was 14.  

PM-6 miles with 5x20 seconds hard during the last mile.

PM-7.1 easy miles. It rained and snowed heavily from mile 3 to 4, then the weather cleared up and it was really nice. I was still soaked though.

AM-3 mile warm up, 8 mile progression run starting around 5:20 and ending at 5:01. 2 mile cool down after. Felt good, the weather was really cold due to the snow and wind until about halfway. Nice run to get the legs moving again.

PM-6 miles up the canyon and back.  Felt a bit tired.

AM-Long run.  My dad volunteered to bike along side me, which made the run nice.  I went around Smithfield, up the canyon, and back.  Felt really good, averaged 6:06 pace.  It was also nice talking to my old man for a couple hours.  

My older brother is training for his first marathon.  Today he ran a 15 miler for his long run, and partway through saw stars, stopped, and threw up.  He believes it was dehydration and as he is on the side of the road in pain, some lady stops her car  and yells, "That's how people get the Corona!" and drives off.  Eventually he made it back to his house, got a drink and finished his run and was fine; however, it's sad that she not only didn't have the decency to ask if he was okay, but stopped to try and make him feel bad about throwing up.

AM-13.5. I was invited to run with a couple guys from Tony's grove to Smithfield Canyon. We were dropped off where the road got too snowy to drive on and then ran the next 4 miles to the lake on compact snow. After getting there, the trail was covered by about eight feet of snow(you could see the roofs to bathrooms).  After guessing on a trail for a few miles, we came down and hitchhiked back to the valley. 

PM-4 easy miles.

AM-7 miles with 2x200m all out in 30 and 29. First time really trying to get the legs to go fast in a month. Plus, running it on the road on what I measured on google maps when I was 15 might not be too accurate.

PM-4.2 easy miles.
