I'm a current student at BYU-Idaho and a former runner for Southern Utah University. I'm majoring in Therapeutic Recreation. I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri.

I was going to run this morning, but I couldn't find anyone who could come. And there's no way I was going by myself.

We ran to the U track and then did a mile warmup, mile speed changes. Then we did an 800. I hit 2:51. Then we did a lap recovery. Then we did 4 400s, each with a lap recovery. I hit 81, 90, 85, and 86 I think. Then we did an 800 with a lap recovery. I don't remember that time. I think I would've done better if I had been in a better mood, and wasn't already thinking about negative things. On the 2nd 400 I quit mentally. When I saw Emmaline in front of me I guess I just gave up.

I felt like I was working hard on most parts of it, but I just didn't come up with the times I wanted. Obviously on the 2nd 400 and last 800 I didn't. I got that feeling of nearly throwing up. So I guess that's good. But my abs also hurt, so I'm thinking that doing core is something that's actually necessary. I kinda haven't done it for like a month. And even then I only did it for 1 week. Maybe it's time to start again, and this time actually keep doing it...
