Junior at SUU majoring in Exercise Science and minoring in Psychology. Served an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. Planning on graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Spring 2020 then going to PTA school after. Haven’t decided yet but I might take out my fifth year of eligibility. If I do, I’ll declare psychology as my second major and work on that my 5th year. We will see how running is going, if I’m doing really well then I’d like to stay and see what I can do. This is an opportunity not a lot of people get so I want to make the most of it and chase down my dreams. We will see what life brings.

Biked 3ish miles between my house and Yoli’s. She ran a mile with me then turned cause she had somewhere to be and I just kept going. Ran up towards the temple. I was tired today, I think I’m dehydrated. And I was woken up at 4am, I was so confused what was going on lol that’s probably got something to do with it. 7:19 average

It’s wedding season again. Haha, I’m the old fart that won’t conform to this trend :) I’m excited, weddings are fun! It’s the norm now like, there goes another one. What’s weird though is all these pregnancy announcements like, didn’t you guys just get married? Utah lol

Started from my house- Main + Canyon. 7:11 average. Calves are sore from yesterday. Hip flexor feels good!

Finals are finally OVER! I’m so excited to go home to Salt Lake tomorrow.

That was a lot longer than intended... I’d planned for 6-8 lol. Started out on Dikes then decided once I got to the light on Main to do a few pickups. Did 8x2 minute pickups with 2 minutes rest. Ended up going up Canyon, finished my last rest and then ran into Angie, Morgan Taylor and Ashley Hawks. Turned and joined them going back up Canyon then finished to the track. Ended up being 11 miles even. 7:06 average for all 11.

Averaged 6:21 pace pickups/7:41 pace rest. A lot of mix with uphill and downhill in there. Feel good about it, good day. 

I’m stoked because over winter break I’ll be meeting up with Angie and Garek.  Garek is running for Texas right now, I haven’t seen him since last Christmas break. I’m excited to see him

Also, I’m feeling really good about where I’m at fitness-wise. We have 3 weeks of break before classes and practice start up again. I haven’t been very focused on running these last couple weeks more just going through the motions, and yet something has just clicked I think. 50% pace used to be a struggle for me, 7:30 average used to feel too fast (ahem freshman year self) and 7:45 felt comfortable. This week I didn’t try to go fast. It just felt normal. Ashley Hawks said to me today that she struggled her first couple of years here too, but she kept pushing through and one day out of nowhere things just clicked and she had a breakthrough. That seems to be the theme with a lot of women on the team. So I’m excited because I’m ready for my breakthrough, maybe this year's the year! Time to roll

Going to start being more proactive in doing core, rehab, taking my supplements, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep etc to be sure I’m ready for whatever Coach has planned in January

Heated my hip flexor then did rehab before running. Main + Canyon, 7:13 average. First time in a while that my hip flexor hasn’t been that painful both before and after the run. 

Also- hips have been misaligned a lot lately. My right one is always the one tilted back or to the side, and it’s my right side that is noticeably weaker while doing rehab. Drew and Stephanie got after me again for skipping out on rehab for several weeks cause now my hips are screwy again. Haha, yeah lesson learned- just because all feels good you don’t stop rehab. I’ll keep doing it over winter break so they can actually stay in place once the season is underway.

Ran with Madison and Morgan, 7:26 average. Hip flexor hurt pretty bad at the end. Knee was fine though lol. Drew got a release out of both flexors. Right one still hurt but was better than before I think. That was so painful, but worth it

7:10 average. Hip flexor hurt especially towards the end, knee stiffened up and hurt pretty bad a few minutes after I stopped. Game readied it (this thing is so cool btw, haha pun intended)

As I’ve thought more about it, I’m kind of glad I’m in the 800 group this year. I think it’ll be the best for me because, as coach said way back when, it’s just getting me to relearn how to go fast. I can hold a pace for a long time, that’s always been one of my stronger suits. When I’m in good shape and when I’m mentally tough and focused, that is. I just need to build confidence in myself, believe that I’m fast and have the ability to run fast times. When I believe that, that’s when I push myself harder and risk going faster just to test what I can do. Sometimes I blow up and die hard. But sometimes if it’s just right, I end up running pretty quick times, or can even it out more next time knowing that I can run fast if I want to. Anyways, the 800 group will be good because it’ll help me to learn how to push through fast pain and not be scared of dying so much. And it’ll remind me to open up and push harder, faster and not necessarily longer because I’m already good at going long.
