Long-Term Running Goals:

After my mission (tentatively June 2017-June 2019), which will be two years of virtually no running, I want to build my fitness back up stronger than it ever was before. Then when I think I am ready I may attempt for a spot on the USU roster again. We'll see how long I have to do that based on age and eligibility and stuff. If I don't ever do it that's fine, I'll still have a lot of fun with running. Some times I want to beat someday:

15:30 5K 

1:10 HM

2:40 Marathon

I have a fantasy in my mind of really breaking through in the marathon and making the olympic trials but we'll see about that haha. That would honestly be a dream come true. I definitely want to run the Boston Marathon at least once. Also maybe when I'm old but not too old I might try a 100 miler to qualify for Western States. 




Freshman at Utah State University. I still have not chosen a major. Just graduated from Logan High School in May 2016. One thing I enjoy aside from running is music, weather it's playing or listening. I am member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and plan on serving a two-year mission after two semesters of school.

Little workout today, didn't go the way I wanted it to but that happens. I warmed up 1.3 to LHS and did drills on the track, then started. Workout was 3-2-2-1-1-3 (Hard, Recovery, so on) (in minutes) and I was going to do it 4 or 5 times. My intent was also to stay on the track the entire time. Got started and I really just didn't feel that good. I was running sub 5:50 pace for the first hard segment but it felt super fast (have barely done any running at that pace). It really only got slower from then on. After the first set I left the track and just headed out to the river trail. I was just really not feeling smooth. I hit the end of set #3 and my heart told me it was time to stop. Headed back to the track and did a couple fast 200s just for the heck of it, not that it would help me with any race I'm focusing on. Hit those in 28, felt really good. Then jogged home. Strava gave me an Extreme Sufferfest for that workout, I don't even know if it can go any higher than that haha.

Super windy run today. Did the standard 10th West, Icon Trail, River Trail route, which I thought was 8 miles but came up short. Was super windy, like REALLY windy with a headwind when I was running south. Last half mile I was flying with the wind. Tried to keep an easy effort the entire time. 7:08 ap.

Awesome afternoon run with Jacob Malone and Hayden. Hopefully I can run with those guys at least once a week. We met by the bull statue on 10th East then ran up to Lundstrom Park, got on the canal and connected to the Highline Trail through the golf course, then ran down Stokes and got back on the Highline. With about 2 miles left we got attacked by a viscious stinging hail storm. That was nine miles, 7:06 pace. After that I jogged a mile in the ARC and did some lifting and calisthenics.

AM: Great morning run with Sylvan Needham, a dude who was on the CC team when I joined way back. He got home from his mission in September. We were supposed to meet up at the same spot as before, I showed up a little late and waited around for a few minutes, the ran by his house and figured he wasn't coming so headed to the river trail, and we ran into each other there. He had some good mission stories to tell. Glad to get so much distance too. 7:30 AP.

PM: 2 relaxed miles on the normal road route after work.

This was a pretty unique run, 13 miles in the cold at 10:30 pm. My bad for not getting early enough haha. After I got home from work I was dreading having to do such a long run but I knew I just needed to get out the door. The run was a strict out and back from my house to Green Canyon, which was exactly 6.5 miles. Didn't pay attention to pace at all going up cuz I knew it would be slow.Was pretty cold at first but that didn't really bother me after a mile. Just tried to relax and enjoy it somehow.There was some pretty nasty headwinds out of the canyon which were cold and strong, but luckily I hit 6.5 right as it got really bad, then I flew down the hill. On 1600 east I started cruising at what I thought was 6:15ish paw but sadly it was more like 6:40. Oh well, it was pretty cold out. Either way I felt good. Continued that until I hit center Street than kinda relaxed the rest of the way home.The last half mile or so was done after midnight haha. 7:26 AP.

P.S. I know I haven't posted in almost two months but I want to try and post consistently from now on, and also work my way back and fill in the void (my little bit of OCD does not permit me to leave those entries blank)

Ran up to Cliffside to try and get the CR, I was pumped about it but sadly did not run the 1.2 mile segment fast enough, actually had to stop about a mile in. Took a little break then headed back down at a blistering pace (had a little headwind though which was cold) and got a few crowns for that. Then jogged home at a relaxed pace. I need to do a 7:55 pace up that hill to get the CR, I'll get it if I keep trying. I figure it's a goal to work towards.
