Went with Clayson, Rory, and Brandon Davis up some pretty trails. It was really windy, but it settled down after a while.</p> <p>PM-8 miles with strides.</p> Fri, 10 May 2019 06:00:00 Thu, May 09, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-09-2019.html <p>AM-5.25 miles with Clayson and Michael.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>PM- 2x(1600, 1200, 800) at 4:23, 3:14, 2:07-8, 4:22, 3:16, 2:05. Not the greatest workout, but it was still a good one. In the second 1200 we started slow(67), but finished fast.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 09 May 2019 06:00:00 Wed, May 08, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-08-2019.html <p>AM-6 miles, mostly with Talem.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-10 miles and then strides with McMillan and Clayton.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 08 May 2019 06:00:00 Tue, May 07, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-07-2019.html <p>AM-5 miles with Clayson and Michael</p> <p>PM-3x &quot;2 mile&quot; at Intramural field. The &quot;2 mile&quot; was 4xloop at Intramural field, which GPS watches always measure way off what Coach measures with the wheel, but this time it wasn&#39;t measured with the wheel and GPS watches said it was long as usual, but that always happens on loops.&nbsp; We still had cones out to measure it.&nbsp; Went 9:55(I think), 9:42, 9:40.&nbsp; It was wet, but not as bad as I expected it to be.&nbsp; Legs felt good until the 3rd one.&nbsp; Jared and Clayton did the majority of the leading.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Tue, 07 May 2019 06:00:00 Mon, May 06, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-06-2019.html <p>AM-6&nbsp;miles with Jared.</p> <p>PM-12 miles and strides.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 06 May 2019 06:00:00 Sat, May 04, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-04-2019.html <p>AM-Long run in St George with Milly, Weaver, and Dallin.</p> Sat, 04 May 2019 06:00:00 Fri, May 03, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-03-2019.html <p>AM-5 easy miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-18.5 km with Clayson.</p> Fri, 03 May 2019 06:00:00 Thu, May 02, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-02-2019.html <p>AM-2 mile shakeout</p> <p>Race-that hurt, got out&nbsp;way too slow, sped up and the last 800 was a death march instead of the monster kick I was hoping for, but it was a big personal record.</p> <p>Warmed up with Clayton, then did a few strides on&nbsp; my own before doing some on the track.&nbsp; My stomache felt a little more full than I would&#39;ve liked, so that&#39;s something to work on.&nbsp; The gun went off, and I immediately cut into lane 5.&nbsp; We were on the outside waterfall, which was very favorable because then I didn&#39;t have to fight for position too&nbsp; much early on.&nbsp; The race strung out, and the pacer was a bit slow(he was supposed to lead us through 3k at 8:00), so I came across 400m at 1:08.&nbsp; I told myself to relax still. After going through 600m at 1:40, I was a little nervous still, but then I came across 800m at 2:12 and knew we were speeding up.&nbsp; Sometime around here Kejelcha and Eric Jenkins passed me, and I expected the race to speed up.&nbsp; It did.&nbsp; I came across 1600m at about 4:20-21.&nbsp; I remained in lane one for the majority of the race, and did my best to stay with the guy in front of me.&nbsp; Every couple laps, someone would fall off the front pack and I&#39;d pass them.&nbsp; At halfway the leaders were at 6:45(or atleast that is what they announced), so I knew I wasn&#39;t too far off pace from my goal of sub 13:30.&nbsp; Clayton was a few spots ahead of me.&nbsp; Around the 7th lap, I felt a blister begin on the bottom of my foot and it hurt quite suddenly.&nbsp; I thought I had somehow cut my foot by the way it felt, but I kept pushing. The guy in front of me was pretty consistent with splits(or atleast I thought so), so it made averaging 65s pretty easy.&nbsp; I came across 3200m at 8:40, so right on pace to run 13:32.5.&nbsp; With 3 laps to go, I started to feel pretty fatigued.&nbsp; With 2 laps to go, I didn&#39;t think I could finish in the necessary 2:08 to run sub 13:30, and was afraid I was going to start going backwards and run 66s or slower.&nbsp; At 600m, I caught up to Clayton and tried to encourage him.&nbsp; At 500m to go, I passed him and then we were both passed by Tyler Day.&nbsp; With 400m to go, I had kinda given up on my goal and just wanted to finish, knowing that I would run a good time either way, but I was in a lot of pain.&nbsp; With 200m to go, I was hurting, but told myself that I&#39;d spent way too much effort to slow down now.&nbsp; I came across the line right at 13:29, and I was pumped!&nbsp; It was cool to be in such a fast heat with so many talented runners. Clayton was 2 seconds behind me at 13:31.&nbsp; &nbsp;I personally think he could&#39;ve ran faster than I did, but it wasn&#39;t his best day.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Long cool down after with Clayton and, for part of it, the NAU boys.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Thu, 02 May 2019 06:00:00 Wed, May 01, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-01-2019.html <p>AM-3 easy miles on my own.</p> <p>PM-5 miles and strides.</p> Wed, 01 May 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 30, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-30-2019.html <p>AM-8 miles and then 4 strides.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>PM-5 miles up the canyon.</p> Tue, 30 Apr 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 29, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-29-2019.html <p>AM-5.25 miles</p> <p>PM-1200, 800, 2x400m at 3:18, 2:06, 60, 59.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Mon, 29 Apr 2019 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 27, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-27-2019.html <p>AM-13 mile long run in Park City. We hit up the rail trail.</p> <p>PM-After downing a Beto&#39;s breakfast&nbsp;burrito less than an hour before I started to warm up, I paced the mile at the Robison Invite. I would never recommend this as pre-race fuel, but I was hungry and it was quick.&nbsp; Was pretty close to the goal pace, but only one person went with me and no one pushed the pace after I dropped off. Went 60-61 through 409 meters, and 2:02 at 809(goal was 2:02-03 at 800m, so I was close).&nbsp; 1 mile cool down after.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Sat, 27 Apr 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 26, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-26-2019.html <p>AM-10 miles with Clayson and Jake on Indian trail.</p> <p>PM-just under 7 miles with Milly and then strides.</p> Fri, 26 Apr 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 25, 2019 http://conner.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-25-2019.html <p>AM-5 miles</p> <p>PM-8x400 at 60s for the first 5, 59 for the next two, then I only ran the first 200 of the last one. 90 seconds jog in between.&nbsp;Good workout. Clayton and I switched off on every other for the lead.</p> Thu, 25 Apr 2019 06:00:00
