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 an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. NCAA eligibility-wise I’m a redshirt sophomore and I’m majoring in Exercise Science. As of right now I’m planning on getting a Master’s in Sports Conditioning and Performance.

Today we did our service project and then went to the Jordan River Parkway and went for 3 miles. Then we went to the team dinner at Emily's house. It was fun!

Warmup of 1.5 miles. Then got my spikes on and gued and ran to the line and did a few strides.

I got an okay start, but not the best. I was behind 2 different packs when we were going around the baseball thing: 3 people up front (one of them Abigail) and then another group in front of me. I worked my way up to that group, and on rollercoaster I was up with them. Then I just kept telling myself to work with them.

I could feel myself starting to crash, and I noticed how easily thos enegative thoughts crept into my mind, and as soon as I recognized them I thought up as many positive thoughts I could, even if it meant lying to myself. That kept me going for a bit longer. Then I crashed, and I focused on what I could: not stopping at the top of the hills. I know it's kind of a sad thing to focus on, but it was actually really challenging for me to do. But I never stopped. I was telling myself all throughout the 2nd mile that I needed to work harder, but I never actually did until after rollercoaster when I realized that there was only a little over a mile left. Even then it wasn't much of a change, but it was better than slowing down. I could tell that by now Ellie was right behind, and it helped to have her there to push me. When coming down the hill before bessie Bill told both of us to try to catch at least 2 people, so I tried. I sped up, but once on bessie I had a really hard time. I knew that it was the last stretch and so I managed to push up the hill, but in the meantime both Ellie and another girl passed me. I hate hills. Then it was just the sprint to the finish line but there was no change there

I'm really disappointed about my race, I was hoping to be in the top 10, but no I wasn't even in the top 20. And Olivia and Ellie both ran faster than I did. But I'm just gonna take my vitamins and do the best I can to get ready for state, and use this as a learning experience the best I can.

We went up to the post office that we met at for the des news 10k and turned then went up by the start of the 10k, then into the campus and up to Red Butte. We got a drink at the drinking fountain then went up to the fence. And then I found 10 dollars.

I had fallen off of the group (I chose to go with the boys and Abigail) and saw Sam go onto a trail and thats the only way I knew to go on to the trail. I was too far back though to know where to go after that. It forked so many times, and I just had to use my best judgement to try to figure out which one to take. This happened at least 5 times. Then the trail finally didn't fork anymore and I thought that I was going the right way, but then it went downhill, and I followed it for a while, but then I got to a spot where I could see down where the rest of the trail went and it just kept going downhill. I figured this was NOT going to take me to JCC like I wanted, so I just turned around and went back to the fence. I did the legacy bridge run back.

Speed today. We did a mile warmup mile speed changes. Then we did a lap to stay warmed up. Then we did the not-telling-us-what-the-entire-workout-is type of workout. We did a 2000, mile, and then a 1200. For the 2000 I was supposed to hit 8:00 I think. Bill just said hit the first lap at this time and then get 4 seconds slower each lap. I started out fast, but then as I got slower I slipped and hit it at 8:09. But I was the closest in our group to hitting it. Everyone else was behind me.

Then for the mile we were supposed to start slower and then speed up. weirdly, this wasn't so bad for me. I liked starting slow and then speeding up. I felt like I was getting more and more focused. I was on pace for the first 2 laps, but then on the 3rd I slipped and it made my 4th one really hard. I tried to do what Bill was yelling at me and I did them, but I had a hard time doing it for a long time. with like 200 or 100 meters left I died. I hit 6:27??? I can't remember. But it was off by 12 seconds.

Then the 1200 sucked because by then I was just ready to be done, and I really didn't want to do it. It didn't help that I was always the one to be up front and there wasn't anyone to push me, and I couldn't really chase anyone because Abigail and the boys were all hitting faster times. I can't remember my time, but it was slow.

Then we did 4 200s just "opening up the stride" but they seemed like normal 200s. They weren't timed but we still knew our times. weird how that happens :) I hit 39-41 on all of them. I hate the wind.

15 minutes of cool down was what we were supposed to do. I did 3 grass laps but wasn't quite at 15 minutes yet so I just took it to 8.5.

Pipeline!!! Natalie came!!!! :)

We went the normal way. I fell off of the group after about a mile and a half. After that I slowed down a lot. Then on the way back we did a "surprise fartlek" I was with Megan for a lot of it. I wasn't feeling too great and she must've been feeling pretty good. At least there was someone to run with. I did about 5 1 minute on 1 minute offs together when she passed me. I finished them alone after that. Then after 10 I finished the run back.
