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.

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.
