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.

What a day. 

AM: Steeple practice then 2 miles easy

PM: Probably the hardest workout I’ve ever done, not gonna lie. Definitely the hardest since returning from my mission. I was already tired because I wasn’t smart and stayed up late last night, plus my legs were still dead from I don’t know what. But I went into the workout with a positive attitude and focused on one thing at a time. It was really tough and I gave up mentally at one point, then just decided to push through it and get my butt into gear, no excuses. Reminded me that mentality is everything, I finished strong and I’m happy with that.

Warmups then a mile warmup and strides, then started the workout. Started with a 3k, Coach put me in the second group and our goal was 12:00. I hit 11:43 (6:03 mile split), I really struggled pacing because I was on my own. Splits were all over the place. Next was 6x400s with 90 seconds active recovery. Then 5x400s with 2:00 recovery. Then 3x400s with a lap recovery. I hit

1) 87, 86, 84, 84, 85, 86 (goal pace 88)

2) 91, 90, 85, 84, 86 (goal pace 84)

3) 81, 81, 82 (goal pace 78 or 79)

I know the paces weren’t that quick, but with such a long workout it definitely got tough at the end.

I’m satisfied with it, definitely didn’t do what we were supposed to but I worked hard and that’s what matters. I’m happy that I switched gears and gritted it out instead of letting the 6 more 400s (I actually thought we had 9 or 10 more at that point lol, don’t know what I was thinking) overwhelm me into running 90s for the rest of the workout and/or dropping out. That’s a win in my book.

1 mile cool down. Ice bath after.

AM: 2 miles easy

PM: Race day! First time racing for SUU in 2 years. I’ve missed track meets but wow I’ve forgotten how to race lol. Had a terrible start (forgot how fast races go out), had a good first two laps then had an asthma attack so not the greatest day. Thankfully Sierra had an inhaler, my asthma’s so sporadic that I didn’t even think to bring mine (the last serious I-really-can’t-breathe attack I’ve had was in high school). It was most likely the combination of the high elevation, dry air and first race in so long. Mostly I just feel bad about letting Coach down but he was pretty positive and didn’t seem too worried about it. Altitude conversion would put my time down to about 5:47ish so ehhh. Still not good but whatever. I did what I could.

Later did the 4x400, felt a whole lot better. Ended up PR’ing for the 400 with a 66, hahaha don’t mind my distance slowness. But in all reality I actually was pretty happy with that.
