Goal Type:

NCAA Champ

Running Accomplishments:

Highschool PR's

5k - 16:24

3 mile - 15:52ish (converted time)

3200m - 9:52

1600m - 4:33

800m - 2:03

Took 9th place at Footlocker in the seniors race, 56th at state cross country(16:46). Generally had a good time.

I won a half marathon, and ran a marathon that I got like 9th in, then won some random 5ks, and wrecked some relay runs before I dipped to do missionary work in Japan.


Short-Term Running Goals:

Get into shape, avoid injury, compete in distance events.

I'm gonna try to race 5k's every couple weeks, 10k's occasionally, and as we get into spring hop into some track races if they're available.

I'm gonna walk onto BYU's team. I know what it takes and I'm gonna do it. I'll probably wait until Fall 2019 to tryout for XC.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Be competetive in distance events throughout my life, and keep running.


I don't exercise. I train.

I speak Japanese.

Good long run. Decided I would do 10 miles of it at a consistent faster pace so I did a 2 miles "warmup" then 10 miles at 6:44 pace. It wasn't the most fun run I've ever been on, but I proved to myself that I can cruise at a good pace for a long time. I'll probably keep doing this style run regularly especially on my long runs. I was kinda tense the whole time, and that got me really rolling on downhills, but uphills killed me. Also I did this on a route that is almost all downhill, so I dunno how accurately they reflect my fitness. Overall felt good, pushed myself mentally, and my legs figured out how to push a little when I'm tired.

I dunno if anyone looks at my blog, but if you do what do you think of runs like this? I could probably do faster(and I would like to :P), but how fast is too fast, and how do I figure that out? For the foreseeable future I'll be doing following a schedule that looks like the one below for reference.

Monday = long run (12+miles)

Tuesday = recovery(relaxed 8-10miles)

Wednesday = intervals/tempo(4miles of intervals/4-5mile tempo run or something)

Thursday = recovery(relaxed 9+miles)

Friday = recovery(8-10miles)

Saturday = long workout/race(still figuring this out, but mostly races)

Sunday = rest

I made this up based on my minimal experience, and things I've heard about what other runners do. I think there's lots of room for improvement in it, and there are details I need to fill in every week about the workouts and distances I'll do, but I'd appreciate any input everyone has!

My brother woke me up on time so I was able to go run 8 miles on the Ogden River Parkway. It was pretty nice. Then I did sprints. I averaged 7:15's about. Feeling good.

Did a big boy workout. The goal was 16x400m@1:12+1:12 rest. That didn't happen lol. They went more like 83, 79, 74, 73, 73, 73, 75, 74, 74, 74, 74, 76, 76, 72, 73, 72. It didn't hurt too much, I'm just slow and out of shape now.

What went well: I did it, mentally this is a tough workout for me, but I was able to finish it. Times were also fairly consistent once I got going.

Things to do better: start out quick and get into a groove. Be mentally positive. Going into this workout I knew it was gonna be hard, and that got to me a little bit. Even though I am going to be doing very hard workouts that I haven't done for 2 years, or maybe not ever in my life I need to make sure I go in with the attitude that I'm going to own it and hit my goal times. Wear gloves. I just need to put on gloves next time it seems like it could be cold and stop toughing it out when I don't need to.

I am very happy and proud about this workout. I haven't pushed like this in a long time, and I'm at a good place, and from here I can just keep improving.

Did 2 miles in the evening and stretched out.

Slow run. I was tired and hungry and they closed my favorite trail for construction, so I did a bunch of crazy stuff and got lost and it wasn't fun. Also the inversion was killing me. But it's whatever. I had a good time.
