I recently returned from serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ghana.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape. I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

      AM- 5 mile tempo run.  Thought I would get a 5:45 pace, but ended up with a slower 5:57 pace.  Not a very good run for me, but oh well.  Did a .75 mile cool down with my little brother and my dog and my friends dog.

      PM- I finally got the distance team's training schedule, so now I can train in the same way as my fellow distance team-mates, while I'm with the freshman.  Did a mile warm up, then an 800, a 600, a 400, and a 800.  I also did a 200 between them all.  Then I did a mile workout up a hill.  Not too fast, but alright pace.  Then a 1.2 mile cool down.

      Easy run.  Felt amazing, probably because I went easy and ate good food yesterday.  Tomorrow's run might not be as good because I ate unhealthy food today, but I'll see.  After the run I felt like I could keep running.  Pushed it at some parts, but I wasn't supposed to.

       Did a 1.5 mile warm up, and then did 7 hill(beast) repeats, and then the golf course hill.  I felt good.  Didn't go too fast I think because I didn't have anyone pushing me like in XC.  mile cool down.

      My schedule said to do a 6 to 8 mile easy workout, but I felt too good to do that.  I decided to do a tempo run of 8 miles.  Later I only did a 7 mile tempo, and a mile cool down.  My time for the seven miles was  39 minutes and 42 seconds.  I pushed it and it felt good.

     Went to Nevada with a friend, and I was supposed to run on a treadmill.  I didn't like the treadmill at all.  I ran 5 at a tempo pace in 29:47, with a small incline.  I felt good, with the exception of being on a treadmill.  Did a half mile cool down after.

     Ran a mile warm up, a 2 mile track workout, then a 2.2 mile cool down/run home.  Felt really good.  Later did a mile and a half run, easy, to get to that 40 mile a week mark.  I just love how much I can run during spring break.
