I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

10 miles. Slow but I felt pretty sick. Not sure what it was. I think it was something I ate.

AM-4 easy miles with Kramer and Talem.

PM-8x400 at 60, 61, 62, 60, 61, 60, then I started the next one but just couldn’t get moving and I gave up. Not sure what it was, but I mentally just couldn’t finish the last two. After a four mile cool down I went back on the track and ran two more in 59 and 60.
