Personal:

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.

Today was speed. We ran up to the track, then we did 2 laps and a mile of speed changes. Then we did another 2 laps before starting the speed. We did 1200, 800, 400, and 4x200s. On the 1200 I was supposed to hit 85s so 4:15. I hit 81, 2:48 (87), and 4:13 (85). Then for the 800 we were supposed to speed up to 80s, so 2:40. I hit 81, 2:47 (86). So I slowed down too much. Then for the 400 I was supposed to hit 78-80, I hit 77. Then the 200s were all between 34-35. Then a grass lap and up to sunnyside, a lap, and back to the track for cool down. On the faster stuff my asthma started acting up.

AM:

4 with Eleanor in the lovely snow, after which I came home and found the door locked so I had to wait 30-40 minutes for my dad to get back from basketball. Yeah, that was cold.

PM:

For the track stuff we did a ton of lunges that made my legs feel like jelly... Luckily distance runners only had to do 2 sets of lunges all the way across the hallway, from the one side to the other where we do drills, while the sprinters had to do 4 :) Then distance went for our run, flagpole to flagpole. I took it easier, I ran with Andy, Caden and Jakob. Then when we got by the school coming back from the U flagpole our pace had slowed a lot so I picked it up.

Today we left for Foot locker! When we got to St. George we went for our run except it was shorter than we usually do it. We cut off the first part of the trail and went to the beginning of the net. But it felt good to get off of the bus.

Today we went to packet pickup and then we ran a shorter version of the course hitting all the hills. Nervous for tomorrow! I don't feel fast enough to be in the seeded race, but I know it'll be a good experience. Then we went to the beach!

Race today. My race was last, the seeded girls, and of course it decided to rain right when the seeded races started. By the time the girls started it was so muddy. I got about 25 minutes of warmup in and strides and stuff.

When we started I was back of the pack already which was discouraging. I focused on catching people and tried to relax like Bill said to do. Going around that fence was sooo muddy and I had no traction whatsoever from my flats. I had to slow down a ton to avoid slipping. The second time around I wasn't so lucky and my foot slid out from under me. I scraped up my knee, elbow, and hip, but I was determined not to let it turn out like state. Up the switchbacks the mud changed from slippery to sticky and it stuck to the bottom of our shoes making it a lot more difficult. I used the downhill and was able to catch a few people there. On the cement I surged because I knew the next patch of mud was going to slow me down. Up poop out I had to walk halfway up because the mud was so slick that I was going slip and fall to the bottom. I walked to the side and when I could I finished the hill. I really didn't want to walk so I was upset about that. Going down the hill I was careful not to slip but turning the corner I guess I wasn't as careful because I slipped again and scraped the other side of me. Up the reservoir hill i caught a few people. Finishing I caught myself from falling a few times. I realized I was bleeding when I finished so that was fun. Now im typing this in the bus, and we still have to drive from St. George to Salt Lake. We will have been traveling home for 32 hours when we finally arrive because we got caught in traffic in the canyon and the bus driver has to sleep. So yeah.

i don't really know what my time was but it was slow.

Today we did Shriners run. We went along 13th to President's circle and throught the U campus on the way there, turned around at the fire station and went back the normal way. 6 miles. I felt short of breath for pretty much the whole run, and my legs felt really tight.

My alarm didn't go off this morning, I set it for PM instead of AM by accident and was late for first period. :( I feel really bad, I was gonna meet Eleanor for a run.

Today we did track warmup of vertical laps, stretching and drills, then distance went to the weight room and did squats, lunges, calf raises, and plankie thingies (IDK what to call them). Then we went for our run. We went along 13th to 21st, then down to 900 and over to 900th then back up to the school.

Today we had track again, we did vertical laps and then stretching and drills. Then we went up to C floor and did 10 stride things focusing on form. Then the strides took too long so we skipped core because it was getting too late. We went to sugarhouse via 13th, did 2 laps, and back along 15th, and down 9th to the school. I felt pretty crappy and tired. Lethargic.

Today we did track again, vertical laps, stretching and drills. Then we did our ab workout that made my abs feel like they were going to split apart. I've started doing core again but I'm not that strong yet. Then we went down to Liberty and went short way to the fountain. We got a drink then went to the mile, and did 2x 2 mile tempos with an 800 recovery back to the mile mark. On the first one Bill kept telling me to relax/slow down. It just felt so slow! I think we came through the mile at 6:31? And I didn't feel like I was pushing! Then again it was slightly downhill for that part but still... Bill told me to slow down and so we did and our little group got 13:47. Then Bill paced it and we were even and our splits were 3:25, 6:51 (3:26), 10:17 (3:26), 13:41 (3:24). It was even easier that way. I was surprised I felt so good because lately I haven't felt good at all. And what's funny is we were just running it today, and once upon a time (ahem, freshman year) I was racing and only got 7 seconds faster. :) Then we went back to the fountain and then back up to the school. Early bedtime? I think so.

Apparently I spaced out yesterday and missed the part about no practice today...so I ran with Eleanor! We did a nice and easy run up to the zoo and took Wasatch to some street and then back to 13th and down to 19th. Then over to 9th, back down to Eleanor's house :)

So today I was really busy.... I had a baby shower I had to go to in the morning that lasted longer than I anticipated and I had to do chores and homework, then watch my sister and finally go to work. So when I got off work I went up to the treadmills and ran exactly 3 before they closed :) I felt tight and my hips were sore/hurting, probably from ice skating for so long.

I went up with Bill, Dakota and Eleanor to Park City to get out of the bad air. I felt fine at the beginning but then got really bad cramps and slowed down, I walked a couple times because it hurt so bad and I almost got lost on the way back. At one point I just hoped to get back before it was dark. Yeah that didn't happen.

Today for track we did a lot of stuff. We did plenty of drills, I think Rich and Vuong were trying to make them go for as long as possible... or that's what it seemed like to me. Then we went up to C floor and did different rotations, Juniors started with Bill and ran and gradually got faster until you were sprinting, then recover and do it again, then we switched to Griff and did core that hurt very much, then to James and did something I forgot the name of but made my arms tired, and then to Tolbert to do fall and goes focusing on driving your foot down. We did that 4 times with about a minute to each rotation but somehow seemed much longer (except for Bill's part, that went by a lot faster.)

Then I went with Emmaline to Steiner and I did 4.5 on the treadmill which sucked. The first 3 miles I did at a relaxed 7:30 pace, then I started to get dizzy and so I backed off. I think I need to start hydrating more.

Today abbreviated drills and then stretching and then went for our run. We went Shriners run, then to City Creek, then down that path to South Temple and back up to 13th and back to East. I am SO SORE from yesterday! I felt like it was a good run, I finally felt good for once! I think it was because I have more motivation now because it's hit me that track is about to start and I've decided I really like track! I'm a lot more excited about track than I was cross country. I don't know why.

I went to Steiner with my brother since today they cancelled all after school activities in effort to get everyone off the snowy roads by 3. Or that's at least what they said. Anyway, Bill said to run for an hour and four minutes, which I think if you went 8 minute pace would get you to 8. I ran at 7.8 MPH for pretty much the whole thing until the last part (after you run an hour on the treadmills apparently they are programmed to slow down to give you a 5 minute cool down, so that surprised me and I went back up to 7.6 MPH.) Now I'm waiting for my brother to finish with his workout so I think I'll go do core by the ice rink. I'm still a bit sore from Tuesday.

My sister went to school last week and got croup and shared it with our family as an early Christmas present. Haha just kidding, she didn't mean to, but I did end up with the virus this weekend. Hers and my other sisters were worse. So yeah, I got barely any sleep last night because I couldn't stop coughing. Maybe it was better that I didn't go to the oval today and make everyone else sick. Anyway, I just went for a short run. I was going to do more (at least 8) but I felt really crappy so I cut it short. Although I'm glad I forced myself to go for a run. Not only do I feel slightly better, I found money on the sidewalk with no one around. So naturally I picked it up. It was getting soaked in the snow anyway. It reminds me of the time I found an iPod touch on the sidewalk. I left that one where it was.

Did some loop from my house stopping by a store to get one more last minute Christmas present. Had to squeeze it in because of a family dinner.

Unfortunately no running today. I had a family Christmas party that took up most of the day, and when we got home it was dark, plus steiners not open. So I did lots of core instead. How do people take off so much time from running? I've missed two days (well three including Sunday but I don't believe in running on sundays) and I'm going crazy. Plus I feel more and more out of shape. Maybe some of it comes from the stupid Para Flu, but I still feel like crap. My throat is on fire and I have random coughing fits and can't breathe because my nose is clogged. On the plus side though its Christmas!!! Best present yet: a blender. Jk you know it's new flats. About time I got some eh? Thanks Natalie for letting me have your old ones. Maybe it's time they retire. :)

I have never felt so sick. It seems to keep getting worse. I have a huge headache on top of the sore throat, cough and congestion. I kept telling myself I could finish the whole run (I was planning on 10 a day for the rest of the week to get my mileage to something okay) but I couldn't make it halfway. I really want to be able to go 10 miles like I could just a week ago, but I can't. I went from my house up to the golf course and had to stop because of a coughing fit, then when that was over with I went to the zoo and started down Sunnyside. I got to foothill and started going along there like the VA loop until the headache I got this morning intensified and I finally just gave up, turned around and went back home. Having minor coughing fits along the way. I hate being sick.

Should've at least tried to go running but at about 9:30 this morning my head felt like it was going to split open, and still does. Migraine. Does running help migraines or make them worse? Might be nice to know for the next time I get one.

I don't know what was with me today, but somehow I convinced myself I wasn't sick anymore. That's definitely not true. Maybe it was because my head no longer felt like it was going to explode. Which is still a good thing. Well, I was in the mood to see how fast I could run a mile. I was hoping for sub 5:40 but shouldve known there was no way. I at least expected sub 5:50. I ran to Liberty and went to the 2 mile mark. That way I could start with a slight uphill and end with a slight downhill. I got 6:14. That's so slow! I was really disappointed. Right when I finished I started to cough which proved I really am not better, but once that was over I decided to try again. Half mile was a 3:08 so I quit. Really discouraging. Granted it was cold, im still sick and slightly out of shape, and the air was bad, but I want to be able to run well again, and don't want anymore excuses. I ran back to the drinking fountain and went home via 1300 S. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to try to do that kind of a workout, but it was nice to at least change it up from just runs.

Went up to Park City with Bill, Dakota, Clayton, and Eleanor. I feel so much better! I'm glad this sickness is finally going away. We did 10 today, I fell off of then after a bit, but stayed fairly close behind, I could still see them which was good because I almost went the wrong way. When they were coming back Bill told me to turn around and run with them then add when we get back to go to the full 10. I was glad because it picked up my pace. I hung on for maybe a mile, I fell off a little but stayed maybe 20 meters back, but then I started to cough and had to stop. I was still pleased that I held it off for that long. Once I got over it I kept going, had to stop once more. But I still felt much better than I have lately. Happy to run a longer distance.

Today I decided to do the Beat the New Year 5k, and I'm glad I did! It was fun! I liked racing in the dark. It was an easy course, just 2 laps around sugarhouse and a little out and back on a small road inside the loop. The food I ate right before wasn't settling too great. I felt like I went fast, I wish they had times. Maybe it really wasn't that fast, I don't really know. But I worked the whole thing, when Bill and his full costume passed me I tried to go with. He told me that it was the time to race (this was the second lap). When people were cheering for me saying "yay first girl" I finally believed I could be the first girl. Coming back from the out and back part I saw the second girl and told myself there was no way she was catching me, and she didn't! Felt like a good race, and a fun one too. Plus I got a $100 gift card so that made me happy.
