Long-Term Running Goals:

Make sure I have fun, not get burned out, and get faster.

Eventually get the school records in the 5km and 10km.  

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.

      I think it was 5.  It was a XC thing that was kinda challanging.  We ran at 6 in the morning and went up this road, which had a very big up hill, and then we went back down to the school.  After Mr. Storrs gave us some donughts and orange juice, which made the run worth the uphill.

I usually don't run on a Friday, but I had forgotten to run yesterday and I wanted to hang out with friends, so instead I ran my long run today and am maybe going to run tomorrow for my Thursday run.

I ran up Smithfield Canyon all the way until I saw the road gate that stopped me. I was only planning on 10 a few days ago, but yesterday I thought I should do 11.  I pushed the run harder than I usually would have pushed a run like this.  I ran up the canyon in around a 6:06 pace, and I averaged (over the whole course of there and back)  a 5:55 pace.  I used my Dad's garmin to see the pace. 

I saw a lot of people there that agreed with me that it was great weather, because they were running outside too.  Now that I'm finished with it I will probably start tapering for Utah-Valley Half Marathon in a week and a day.

      Ran up Smithfield Canyon to my usual turn around point.  Saw Hayden and talked to him for a bit.  I felt really good until the last mile.  I didn't feel all the way there, like I was somewhere else, but I don't know.  I can't remember it that well.  Weird.

Fun race.  Kind of tough at first but then got into it.  Ran a PR.  Stayed until Paul Peterson came in on the full marathon and talked to him and a few others after the race.

      Was at Lake Powell with the the young men in our ward.  The last few days I was sore from the half marathon.  I felt better today so I thought it would be good to go for a run. 

     It felt good to run, but it was very hot even if it was in the morning.  At the middle of the day it was 89 degrees in the shade. 

     I saw a lot of rabbits I counted 12, ten cottontails and two jack rabbits.  They were mostly all alive :-).  It felt good to run again.

     Ran today again at Lake Powell.  It felt good, but felt harder than yesterday's run. Hotter than yesterday because I ran later in the day.

     Had a good run for the first 4 miles.  After that I started getting dehydrated and I felt a little weak, (probably because I didn't have dinner yesterday or breakfast today.)  I ran a little later.

      I saw my dad a little before my turn around point and later caught up to him.  I also saw Paul running up the canyon when I was running down.  At my last mile I stopped to take a break--I had a small stomach ache, was dehyrdrated, and my calfes were a little beat up.  When my dad caught up, I ran a little with him to start up again and later speed back up.

     Ran with the XC team.   Ran with Dylan for most of it.  He pushed me a ton.  I'm glad I ran with him because I didn't know the course.  We also ran an extra mile to a place I have only been to a very few times.  Later we ran 400 meters for a sprint.  I felt great during it, and got a time that I didn't think I could get...

    I was going to take it easy, and start running 5 days a week now.  Forgot I was taking it easy after the first half mile and just ran it as fast as I usually run my runs.

     Ran with the XC team.  Just ran with a bunch of different people.  Slower, so it felt good.

     Did a quarter mile swimming with only legs.  I wasn't going to do any workouts today, but thought I should do some cross training.

     XC- Ran from SV to this hilly trail. Ran up to the turn around spot twice from the start of it.  Ran for a little up another little trail after that, Then ran back to Sky View.  I'm just guessing with the distance.

     Ran up the canyon.  Had water at mile 5. Went slower than I wanted to go, probably because I ran yesterday.  I'm just getting ready for the 15k on the 4th of July.  I feel ready for it, but I don't know if I'll get the time I would like to get.

     XC- We ran three miles, then did sprints on the track. 30 yards sprint 70 walk.  I didn't feel like I was pushing it that much, except on the sprints.

      Felt like I was going, fast, but I wasn't sore at all after, so I don't know if I pushed like I supposed to.
