I run for SUU and I'm going into my third year. I took a year off between my first and second years to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri. NCAA eligibility-wise I’m a redshirt sophomore and I’m majoring in Exercise Science.

Total Distance

AM: 2 miles easy. Hip pain is gone, strange, it’s migrated to my low back. But it’s more of an ache now, much less intense. 

PM: Did about 1.5 warmup with Ashley for the mile, then drills and strides. This time racing I had to mentally tell myself to get out fast because last time was real bad haha. That was good because my heat flew at the start, was still in the back and hit 76 first 400. Then I died but it’s whatever. At first I was really upset that I got yet another slow time, I think I’m a bit too hard on myself sometimes. I want to be back to breaking 5:20 every race, but my body’s just not ready for that yet. I haven’t broken 5:20 in three years, it’ll take some work. I improved 12 seconds from last week though. 5:44 converts to 5:36ish.

Did about .5 cool down with Ashley, then decided to try to sign up for the 3k just because. I was surprised that they let me, but I thought it could be fun. Warmed up another mile. Didn’t have any expectations going into it. Stuck on Ashley for the first lap or two, then settled into a comfortable pace (she was shooting for 10:30 and I knew I couldn’t hold that haha). Ended with 11:42, so not great but I was tired. It converts to 11:25. Good for a second race and good to race the 3k for the first time this season. 

1.6 cool down with Ashley, Bino, and Jacob Francis.

Thanks for the insights about college training. You are navigating the ups and downs well. Staying consistent will see results, in life and running. You definitely do have a faster mile in you, but you're training pretty hard so it will come.

We all have little injuries, your hip/lower back could just be your body getting used to training, but be sure to diagnose where one side of your body/muscle group may be tighter than another. Usually that's an obstacle.

Enjoy the L7
