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.

Warmups, mile warmup, strides, then started. Workout was 8x1000s with 1 minute recovery (though it ended up being 1:15-1:30 because we had to run over to the 200 mark). Anyways, hit 3:39, 3:38, 3:39, 3:51, 4:05, 4:04, 4:05, 3:56. (3:52 average). I’ve only ever done 5x1000s before this and usually with more recovery so I was happy with it. My legs got pretty heavy after the fourth one so I did my best to work through it and at least keep it fairly consistent. Definitely put in the effort. 2 miles cool down.

AM: 3.5 miles

PM: Very windy day today. Workout was 3 x 1 mile repeats with 2 laps jog in between. Then ran over the overpass and to a hill for whistle hills. I hit 5:47, 6:09, 6:20. I got tempo stomach in the middle of the second mile, quick bathroom stop in between the last two. So more recovery than I was supposed to get, but oh man it was a painful rest of the workout. Cooled down to 7.5. 

Weights later.

AM: 1.65 miles plus steeple practice

PM: Mile warmup, strides then started. Workout was 1 mile and 12x400s divided into 3 sets, all at the same pace but rest decreased. First set had 90 seconds rest, second 60, third 30.

Mile: 5:48


1) 83, 81, 82, 84

2) 83, 83, 83, 84

3) 86, 98, 95, 98

Then cooled down to 7. 

Had bad tempo stomach again, was constant from second lap of mile but hit real hard the last set and I just tried to finish. I wish my last set had been better, when the cramps hit hard (felt a bit like knives) I wasn’t very strong mentally either. I probably could have hit faster times. But also considering it’s the third workout of the week it was a good workout and I’m happy with it.

AM: Felt surprisingly decent this morning. 4.5 miles easy

PM: Legs didnít feel so great later on but itís all good. 2 mile warmup and strides. Workout was 4x400s with 4 minutes recovery, 4x200s with 2 minutes recovery, and 8x100s with 30 second recovery.

400s: 71, 73, 74, 76

200s: 35, 34, 35, 35

100s: 17, 17, 18, 17, 18, then my watch died but same effort for the next 3.

1 mile cool down

Iím lacking in the speed department but it felt good to do a quicker workout. Maybe next time Iíll actually do it in flats, haha. Also, Iíve been trying to focus more on my recent improvements rather than compare myself so much to my teammates. Itís helped me to have a more positive mentality. Iím starting to close in on my high school fitness level, which is awesome. Iím not quite there yet but compared to a month or so ago Iím getting faster. Even looking at the miles we did this week, two were only 2-3 seconds slower than my fastest ďraceĒ this season and felt smooth and relaxed.
