Personal:

I ran for Southern Utah University for almost 3 years, but recently decided to step away from the competitive environment of the NCAA to focus on improving my mental health. I also served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Independence, Missouri.

I ran over to the track and did two laps then a mile of speed changes. I was surprised to find the sprinters there. Rowland Hall and Judge also came later. So it was a lot busier than I was hoping, but oh well. I changed shoes then did a lap and started. I did 3x1200s, I was supposed to hit 4:15. I hit 4:17, 4:38, and didn't catch the last one because my ipod didn't stop, but it was around 4:40. I was struggling to hit it, even the first one felt like I was pushing really hard to hit, but usually the first one feels really easy. And these are 85 pace so it should feel easy anyway. But it wasn't. I think the elevation change back up here might have something to do with it, but I was hoping even then I'd be able to hit my times. It was hard to push myself with no one doing it with me. I found myself focusing more on random pains like my calves or the burn or how annoying it was to have to hold my ipod (somehow my family doesn't own a watch that works, and my garmin is lost.)

I did 2 laps between each and 1.5 miles cool down. Did my core.

I accidentally took a four hour nap... I guess I was pretty tired :) I did stay up really late last night. So I only had time for 6 miles. I did my core.

I did the cemetery run today. Felt pretty good, pretty relaxed. My right ankle started to hurt in the last 2 miles, maybe it's time for new shoes? Did my core.

I felt really lethargic today. I did Shriners run. I was halfway through the U campus when I realized I was wearing a BYU T-shirt. Yeah, maybe today just wasn't my day. 8 miles. Switched the shoes even though these ones are past their mileage too, but my ankle didn't hurt :) I'm going to the Nike outlet tomorrow to get new shoes. Did my core.

Taylorsville Invitational today. I warmed up for the 3200 for 1.5 miles.

I was seeded first, but some girls took the race out fast. Came through at 75, then 2:41. At that point I thought we were going too fast and I backed off a bit, ended up being a lot more than I thought. Then I was running really slow and gave up and got a terrible time, worst I have had all year. The timers were nice to me and screwed up the timing so it says I ran an 11:59 but I actually ran 12:41. We tried to fix it but I'm not sure if they ever did. I was very disappointed with my race. I was actually really tired after it and instead of getting mad and preparing for the 1600 I wanted to take a nap. Haha great mentality right? Well I did take a quick nap but it didn't last very long. Warmed up a mile for the 1600.

My first lap was a 77, then 2:41, then 4:08, finished 5:36. Perfect pace for a two mile, I honestly feel like if I had to I could have made that into a 2 mile and would have done so much better because I was more focused. But didn't push like I should have. I should have gone with Angie when she moved but I didn't. 

Warmed up for the 800 with Angie because surprise! Bill put me in that too. But I was actually excited to race it and for once felt ready for it. We joked it was going to be a cat fight between me and Angie, at the end it sort of was :) Bill told me to stick with the back of the pack for the first lap, then pass people last lap. New strategy but hey I guess it worked. First lap was a 72 but it didn't really feel that fast. Second lap I started to feel the burn but it wasn't as intense as I was expecting. I tried to pick it up 300 left, 200 left, and when I was coming around the curve Bill was yelling at me to swing, I was about to but the girl in front of me did and Angie a little farther up went out in lane 2 leaving me lane 1. Worked out perfectly I guess. When I got on Angie's shoulder she sped up and I fought her but she went around a girl and I was stuck behind her, finishing a second behind Angie. It was honestly a fun race for me I enjoy the 800 probably because it goes by so fast but I like how it's between sprinting pace and mile pace. I'm happy with it considering I ran the mile and two mile before it and the legs were tired.

I did cool down with Angie, counting it as a mile.
