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.

AM: Progression run today! Considering I haven't really done any speed and am still coming back, increasing mileage and intensity, I'm happy with how I did. I made it 2 progressions, was pulled right before the third progression started. Looking back on my freshman year I had only made one progression and two laps, so I improved despite coming back from several months of no running at all (plus I packed on the pounds lol) and a solid year of no competition. This years team is crazy good, the last time we had that many people finish the progression run was the 2012 team, our best team ever. I'm excited for what that means for the future, it'll probably mean less traveling for me this season but I don't mind! As I improve I can make my way back up to top 7. This'll mean we have a shot at Nationals in the coming years! Also, I made it to camp! Was 14th overall in the progression run. My freshman year I was 8th with having only completed two laps of the second progression, if that gives you any idea of how our team has improved. Ahh so stoked, getting really excited for this year!

Just a run-down of what the progression run entails:

3 laps at 9:00 pace (2:15/lap)

Small block at 8:00 pace (8:31, so just over a mile? Not sure).

3 laps at 7:00 pace (1:45/lap)

Progression 1- 4 laps at 6:30 pace (97)

Progression 2- 4 laps at 6:20 pace (95.6)

Progression 3- 4 laps at 6:10 pace (94)

1 lap at 93

1 lap at 92

1 lap at 91

4 laps all out.

Total miles: 7.34.

Obviously I didn't finish this year but I'm excited because I know I can next year, or maybe even in December if we do it again :) PS calves are dead.

PM: Left for camp! 2 miles on the trail up at Brian Head.
