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

     Longest day since October 10th!  It went okay, but it was great to run.  The goal was to run atleast 3 miles tempo, or 5k, and see how I hold up.  I warmed up well, and everything felt pretty good.  A little foot pain, maybe I need new shoes, but it was still good.  After I took a layer off and was about to start when my iPod died.  haha, of course.  Anyway, I ran the first 1000m with relative ease.  Around here though my calves felt like they were hit with a hammer. They just hurt so much.  I finished the mile(it was a little quick, but not something too insane. 4:48) and stopped.  I tried to start up again after a minute break, but it would have put me too far back, so I pulled the plug.  I then cooled down for a bit, then ran 4 miles(Dr said I could probably run up to 8 miles today, as long as nothing hurt injury wise) at a progressive slower pace. Last 4 miles were 6:07, 5:53, 5:48, 5:23(I got a little excited the last few laps, and it felt good.) I'm ready to start getting faster again

      1 hour of pool later.  Maybe core tonight too.

     Ran with Caleb, Ethan, Stockton, and Alex for the first 5 miles, then the next 5.5 with just Ethan and Stockton.  We did a beast hill and two beauty repeats. I had to walk down the hills because the downhill running isn't good for my femur, according to my doctor, who is probably right.  It felt decent, but it's weird trying to come back.

     6 miles. Two warm up with Ethan, Jordan, and Stockton, then ran while them and Trevor did their workout. I ran with Trevor for a few laps and then jumped in with Ethan his last two. I tried to get him to run them pretty quick, which I think he did.  2 miles cool down after.  My femur started to have some pain again, so I might not run tomorrow, but we'll see.

     1.5 mile warm up, then I wanted to see how many 800s at about my 5k pace I could do. Let's just say it didn't go great, but I feel like I'm ahead of where I was last week, and I think this is getting me stronger.  I did 4 at 2:17, 2:20, 2:20, 2:20(2 min. rest between).  After I cooled down 1.5 miles, but I started to feel better, and my calves loosened up, so I did 2X400m at 1:03s. I didn't really have a huge goal for these.  Everything was alone today. Then Trevor showed up, so I ran a mile with him before going home.  When I got home I ran 3.5 more miles. I might do core tonight too. I feel like I should've done more 800s(atleast 2 more), but that's how it goes sometimes, and Saturday I'll run harder.

Easy. Little pain when I woke up, so I did some pool running for an hour.

     1 mile running, no pain, but doctor said to be careful(he said not to run), so I ran 80 minutes of pool running with 4X(3 min, 2.5 min, 2 min, 1.5 min, 1 min. with 30 sec in between each interval) and 1 minute in between sets, then 5 one minute sprints/strides in the water. I got pretty sick today, so it was absolutely for the best that I didn't run nxn southwest, but congrats to everyone that did! Utah wrecked everyone! AF, Davis, Timpanogoes, and Desert Hills, then Josh Collins went and won it individually.
