5k - 16:24

3 mile - 15:52ish (converted time)

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.

Personal:

I don't exercise. I train.

I speak Japanese.

Did 7 on a treadmill cuz I don't trust my ankle enough to venture to the outside yet. Felt fine.

Thought my ankle might still be a little sketch so I did an hour of aquajogging. I'm torn about how to log this time...so I'll just call it 6ish miles...if that's bad...then I dunno, this is my blog and I'll probably just do what I want. If you're worried about your spot on the mileage board then feel free to join me at the pool I guess.

So I woke up before 7 for the first time in forever, and felt like trash. I texted someone about that and they were so concerned about my self esteem that they kept saying that I'm not trash and I was thinking "I know that, I'm great, I just physically feel like I want to cease living and I don't think you understand that" but I thought about it and was like "dang this person obviously cares about me if they don't want me to think I'm trash enough to say I'm not twice, even though I just mean I could go for a few more hours of sleep". And I was kinda touched by that. So that's how I felt something besides exhaustion and a desire for sleep this morning.

So halfway through this I had to pee so I got out of the pool and I could not stand up, I was so physically spent that I could not get up. It was so crazy. My back muscles and neck muscles were super tight and tired and my arms and legs were burning. So that was a crazy feeling. That convinced me of the efficacy of aquajogging. That being said, I'm still not that good at it. I catch myself treading water with a more efficient arm or leg movement every couple minutes, and I don't think I'm keeping my tempo up as well as I am supposed to. As I get better I will log these miles at 8min = 1mile, but for now it's not as effective as running so it'll be 10min = 1mile. Also there was some slight ankle discomfort during this that would have turned into pain if I had been pounding the pavement, so I made a good call I think.

Did a little bit of swimming. It hurt nice. It was fun.
