Long-Term Running Goals:

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

School records in the 5km and 10km.  


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.

     1.5 mile warm up, then 2X800m at I pace with 2 minutes recovery, then 3X400m (with 600m recovery) at F pace.  I didn't feel good at all during my 800s, but they were fast. (2:14, and 2:17 goal was 2:20). I didn't feel like I could breathe right, and I kept coughing during the whole run.  My first 400 was good (58 goal: 58s), but the other ones were slow, and felt worse.  I just couldn't get moving.  (1:01 and 1:02).  After I felt terrible.  I went on a cool down, but my legs couldn't get moving.  I blame it on my very poor diet yesterday, which was full of rice crispy treats, chips, and fruit snacks.

     1.5 then .5 pacing Wes to break 5, then 1 more mile.  All easy except the two laps with Wes.  Then I had to go buy 1800 otter pops from Wal-Mart for Sophomore Class, then 3 miles easy when I got home.

4 miles tempo, 2 miles cool down.  My first, third, and fourth mile all went great, but that second one was terrible.  I'll put splits up later.  My calves hurt afterward. 

Splits: 5:02, 5:39, 5:16, 4:55

     1.5 mile warm up, then the workout. An 800m (800 recovery) at mile race pace, then 6X200m (200 recovery) at mile race pace.  I did my first 800m with Alex, who had a extremely hard workout of 2X800m at 2:09s, then 400m (5 or 6) starting at 58 and progressively getting slower, then 200s at 30s, then 100s working on starts.  Crazy kid.  Anyway, my 200m splits in the 800 were 29, 32, 32, then I realized I had the pace easy so I slowed down to a 34, just bearly getting below my pace(2:08).  2:07.07 was my time.  After I did a cool down with Alex and did my 200s.  I was supposed to hit 31s in here, but it felt too easy.  I ran 28, 29, 30, 29, 29, 29.  They all felt pretty easy, and I slowed down the last 50m because I was too fast on them.  After I did 2 miles.

      6 easy with Joseph, Glen, and Wes.  We ran Sunnyside, then went back to school for the last day.  I felt great, my legs were only a little bit sore.

      4 miles tempo.  My left knee hurt during the last mile, but it felt aright after.  During my cool down my calves and achilles started hurting a little, so I slowed it down.  Splits for the tempo:  4:52 (too fast for the first), 5:36 (too slow, but I think I was paying for that first mile.), 5:15 (Right where I wanted this mile.), 4:55 (where it should be.  I was sprinting my last bit of this mile).  2 miles cool down after.
