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.

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-No run. 

PM-12 miles plus 5 strides after. Felt pretty good, had my foot taped up before the run. Probably went a bit too fast.

AM-4 easy miles on the treadmill. It was pretty cold this morning. 

PM-Recovery workout today. It was 3x(800, 400) on the grass. I’m not 100% sure on what we hit, but I think we were around 2:10-2:12 range on the 800s and 62 for all the 400s. Grass is tough some days.

AM-4 easy miles

PM-10.5 miles and strides. Got Matt and Zac to run the strides with me, so that was nice. I felt really good today, hopefully it carries over to my workout tomorrow.

AM-4 miles

PM- 20x400m @66 with 30 seconds recovery. This workout wasn’t horrible. We hit probably eight at 65, one at 64, a couple 67s, and finished with a 60-61, and the rest were 66s. Clayton, Danny and I switched off leading every one, which made it nice. Jake led one near the end to help. It was just a fun good workout. My calves are pretty toast after. The only thing I’d change is to be more ready for when the next repeat is going to start, because sometimes I wasn’t ready to run.

Carterville extended with some strides after. I felt pretty tired all day, and I guess that’s just what happens at the end of a long week of workouts and schoolwork.

17 miles from a gas station up Provo canyon. It was a beautiful run. Now too sure on our average pace, but I know we were ran a few miles in the 5:30-5:45 range going up the canyon. The mountains looked wonderful, the company was good, and it was perfect weather.  It a bad way to end the week’s training.
