Pre-high school: I ran a lot of local 5ks and a few half marathons.  I didn't do a ton of training, but I just had fun, and I got more serious about it as high school got closer.

High school: I enjoyed running a lot, especially cross country.  I originally did track to keep my in shape for cross country.  I ran at Footlocker Nationals, the Adidas Dream mile, Brooks PR Invitational, world xc junior championships, and a few local 5ks.

Long-Term Running Goals:

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 haven't posted in a while about training. The last run I completed was great, but I had some hip pain. About an hour after the run, I couldn't walk without a sharp pain. The next week and a half, I couldn't do anything without a sharp pain in my back and hip. I got a couple MRI's before finding it was a sacral stress fracture. Only recently I've been able to cross train without pain in my Sacrum. I had to pull out of the Houston Half Marathon and won't be running the Olympic trials in the marathon either. Now my goals are to try and run the Olympic standards in the 10k and 5k. 
AM-3000 yard swimming, 30 minutes of pool running.

sucks to hear. godspeed in the recovery, hopefully youíre back inspiring us to train harder soon.

Wow- glad you found it, at least. Heal fully, then get back at it.

Wow. I figured that's what happened to you after that last post. I still check your blog regularly. Sorry to hear that, Conner. But I'm sure you're so thankful that it didn't happen during your great cross country season and team championship! Don't worry--if you're not running indoor--because indoor track kind of sucks anyhow. :-) Outdoor track is going to be great for you, I feel. Don't rush it, and make sure you heal well.

I feel for you, Conner. Biking and swimming suck compared to running, especially biking on a stationary bike. I've never tried nor had access to an underwater treadmill, but it sounds kind of miserable, too. Good to see you're working hard to keep up your aerobic base!

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.

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.

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.

Is it making you nervous to run out there with more people/cars?

From Conner Mantz on Thu, Apr 16, 2020 at 15:07:08 from 67.2.208.200

A little bit with cars. I moved back to my hometown near Logan, Utah, and it's pretty rural. There aren't enough cases here to be too worried about people.

What about for you in Florida?

From Mike on Sat, Apr 18, 2020 at 14:26:09 from 35.142.90.55

Honestly, it's not bad here. People aren't taking it as seriously as in other places which is both good and bad. I do wish it was a bit more rural, however.

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.

AM-2.5 mile warm up, strides, then a mile time trial with 3 guys. Casey and I have been talking about this for over a month, but today things are finally a little less stressed(Utah now says we're good to meet in groups of up to 20), so we decided today would be a good one. It was pretty windy, and we were all a little nervous due to no speed work prior. Our pacer did a pretty good job, bringing us through 1209 in 3:06. I felt like garbage for the first 600m, but once my legs were used to running quick again I felt great. At 300 to go I tried to go around Casey, but the wind was really bad, so I sat on him and tried to pass him on the last straight. He was 4:08.0 and I was 4:08.1. It was pretty fun, nothing too crazy, but it was a nice change from what we've had.

AM-14 miles in Smithfield Canyon.  This is the farthest I've ran up the canyon.  The snow that covered the road the last time I was up there is melted.  

PM-Just over 6 miles around Smithfield, to the canyon, to Birch, and back around. 

Total Distance

AM-7 miles. 

PM-3 mile warm up, an attempt at a 5 mile tempo, then cool down until I was at 11.  The goal of the tempo was to start around 5:00, maybe a little slower, and then bring it down to 4:55.  I thought this was practical due to tempos being my best workouts.  I started and things felt fast, but I just never got into a rythym.  First couple miles were 5:01, then the third, which was downhill, was 5:08.  I stopped at a porta-potty just after 3, thinking it would be easy to run the last two miles around 10:00. After about 200 meters of killing myself to run slow, I called it a day and finished up my mileage.  The finishing up mileage was really slow and tough.  I think I forgot to eat enough between my runs and that just left me depleated.  

Total Distance
17.00

AM-13 easy miles up Birch, down Birch, and up Smithfield.  Lots of people were camping, which was fun to see.  

PM-4 easy miles up Birch and back.  Fairly short due to the longer run this morning, but it was much needed to get out of the house.

AM-3.5 warm up, then 8x1000m with 60 sec recovery. I think the markers were off, but it was very similar to what I had measured(just different starting and ending spots) with my watch. At the end of my warm up, I wondered why use my watch to measure instead of the course's markers, so I ran according to those. 2:40, 2:44, 2:46, 2:45, 2:39, 2:39, 2:38, 2:35. While I felt a ton better than any run last week and this was on dirt and grass instead of only grass, I don't believe the 1000m I was running was accurate, especially with the hill. Regardless, I'm happy I finally felt good going fast again. 3.65 cool down.

PM-4xmile at 4:39, 4:36, 4:32, 4:28. I didn't feel too good, and was surprised that even with 12 mph winds it was tough to run the 4:39. 3.5 warm up, 3 cool down, 600 in between.

PM2-A recent grad from my high school asked me to pace him for an 800. He ran a PB by 5-6 seconds, so even though my pacing was inconsistent, I'll count it as a win.

Where do you do your tempos?

I usually do that out by Utah Lake.

I start on the intersection of Provo Center Street and Geniva Road, and toward the lake. It used to be a loop, but construction has stopped it. Now it's just an out and back.
