Personal:

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.

Today we went to the oval. We did 8 laps warmup, 8 laps speed changes, then changed shoes and did another lap. Then we did a mile, I was supposed to hit 5:50. I hit 5:51. 2 laps recovery. Then we did 3 sets of 3 300s with recovery to the start, then a lap between the sets. I was supposed to hit 60 on each one. They went 57, 57, 57, 57, 57, 58, 57, 57, 61. Then because Bill wasn't satisfied with my 61 I had to do another one and got 54. Then we did 4 laps cool down.

We went to the cemetery and did a lap, then to the hill, 4 strides up the hill, another lap, 4 more hill strides, then finished the lap and did shriner's run to the roundabout and turned and went back to the school. I was having a really REALLY bad day and just was in the worst mood. I did not feel good at all.

We went to Liberty and did 1 lap of fireman then 1 more lap of the postal or whatever (the opposite of fireman) and it really wasn't nearly as hard as last time :) I liked it. Then on the way back I decided I'd back off a bit seeing as tomorrow's Simplot :)

 Simplot! We drove up to Pocatello and after like 7 hours of sitting around we did a 1.25 loop and then started drills, then after a few we went inside, changed shoes, and went to the line. I got in a lot of good strides right before the race. Counting that as about 2 miles warmup.

I wanted to get 5:20ish. I was on pace for it for about the first 6 laps, maybe like 1 or 2 seconds off. I just tried to hit the pace the best I could, and stick with the group. I almost fell off the track a couple of times and I think I accidentally pushed someone when I did... :0 I felt good at that pace, but then the last 2 or 3 laps were hard and I think I just lost focus and backed off. I feel like if I would've worked harder those last couple of laps I could've been at least close. But oh well, I still have saturday because I made finals!!! Now I know what it's like to race on that track. Saturday I'm hoping to have a good race, especially since we'll be able to wear spikes! :)

No cool down because Bill said it depended on if I made finals, then when we found out everyone was leaving... so I'm assuming I wasn't supposed to cool down...

I did about a mile warmup and then drills in the bull pen area. Then I spiked up and was placed in my heat.

I got in good position and the first few laps I was feeling great and on pace for 5:20ish. Then after the 800 I started to feel tired and it got harder, and I slowed down. I really need to work on the last half. I also didn't kick very well if at all. But I did much better than last year where I kind of dogged it and was satisfied with being there. I feel like this outdoor season is going to be a good one.

After watching a few races and cheering Bill on in his coaches mile, we did 6.5 miles of cool down I think it was. We went to the trail and then did a few laps in that cemetery and then went back. I was tired and had a harder time keeping up, but I managed. When we got back we did a lap around the building to add on.

I want to get my times down to 5:20ish and possibly under, so I'll have to start working harder, but I think I could do it if I really tried.
