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.

Solid day. We did the 8 x temple hill workout again or at least a few of us. Basically just Johnny and Kristin and I and a few other girls. Before track I ran a mile barefoot on the turf and it felt pretty dang good. Then after the team meeting we jogged up there and did the workout. It didn't feel any harder than last time. Times were: 

31.47,     38.50,     38.00,     36.40,     35.93,     36.91,     36.77,     33.41.    Avg- 35.92

I ran the whole workout with Johnny, and that was nice to have somebody to run it with. I was super surprised when I ran that 31. I geuss I was ist excited to get going but I'm pretty sure it would have a lot harder he first time I did this workout. I brought my average down too, which is expected for a workout done every other week. We jogged back and then did 100s w/ 300 jogs in 14.51, 15.69, 14.66 and I missed the last one. Then 100s on the turf barefoot. (I did all the strides with Jack.) Then we did the usual hip drills and weights. The weather was really phenomenal today too, so I'd say it was the best track practice yet.

Good day again today. It was beautiful weather and I felt okay too. Before practice I did a two mile loop abround Willow Park, and then for the main run I ran to First Dam w/ Jack. We took it at a real chill pace, but it was great because then I could get in the volume and still make it sort of a recovery day. After that I ran some 200s with Mark, the first one being part of his 400. Times were 34.42, 31.72, 28.86, 29.5. They a felt pretty good except for maybe the last one. The 34 felt really controlled, like I could have gone and done 3 more of those, which would be an 800 PR, and that was after a lot of miles. Makes me pretty confident for Thursday, even if I am racing the 2 mile also. Finally 4 100s on the turf, which felt good as always. We are doing starts tomorrow, and that should be fun.

Pre-meet day. Did some miles warming up and then a bunch of waterfall starts and strides. Then I did maybe a mile cooldown.

Race: Ogden @ Logan Track 2015 (0.497 Miles) 00:02:12, Place overall: 4, Place in age division: 4
Total Distance

Long day, but pretty satisfying overall. I started out by jogging 3 laps about 45 minutes before the two mile. I felt pretty tight in the shins, but I had Jack stretch them and they felt better, but they were still pretty sensitive in some parts up until I raced. I did some more warming up later, but I didn't really get a chance to do strides or stretches. 

3200m- 11:38 PR

This was pretty dang dissapointing. I started super fast with Keith in maybe a 73, so way quick. I told Keith we should slow down, but he didn't listen. He has the wrong race strategy for the two mile. Anyways I spent most of the race maybe 80 meters behind him, but then I started reeling him in the last 600m and finished it 2 seconds behind him. If he hadn't started his really late kick I would have caught him! Oh well, it just frustrates me that I've been running so many miles and I'm still not as fit as I was arobically during cross country. 

Did some more jogging after that. During the mile, Jack was in the lead and looking pretty good. I went into the rec center to fill my water bottle and when I came out he was nowhere in sight on the track. Turns out he collapsed at 1200m. He was out for five minutes and he ended up getting loaded on an ambulance. We'll how he's doing but I don't know if he'll run again. 

800m- 2:12 PR

Very satisfied with this race. My splits were approximately 30, 34, and then a 68 400m. The start was so fast. I don't know what I was doing! Maybe if I had made the 400 splits a little closer than I would have ran that faster. I was basically right behind the three Ogden guys that beat me up until 200m then I died off. I really started feeling the pull back as soon as I hit 400. It hurt but I learned from it, and I PR'd by six  seconds!

Some more jogging and strides. 

4x400m Split- 58.83 PR

This race got me so energetic! I started out on my leg and I felt really good, and it didn't really start to hurt until the last 100. My team was Johnny, Jake, me, and Mark. Splits were 52.19, 59.46, 58.83, and 58.13. I was inpressed with Johnny running a 52 seeing that he ran a 51 earlier. So that was automatic PR since I've never race it before. I could probably run like a 56 if didn't race before then, so that was a huge confidence booster.

2.5 mile cooldown with Mark and then strides.

Well I geuss today was my long run but it's okay to switch it up sometimes. I woke up this morning with a heck of a knot in both my calves. But with a little massaging they felt better. Half day today so we just met at first dam in the afternoon for a run up the canyon. I told myself I was going to go at my own pace strictly so that's what I did, trailing behind Coach Strand and Mark and Vickie. Then I caught up to Vickie and ran with her till we turned around. It got really muddy as we got higher up the canyon, and we ended up turning around, but not after going for 50 or so minutes. On the way back I went by feel and ran alone at a good pace all the way back. I felt pretty good the second half, but only because it was all downhill. Well tomorrow I'll run seven probably and hopefully I can get get the soreness out of my calves.

I woke up this morning and my calves were even more sore than yesterday. All that racing in spikes on Thursday must have really done a number on me. So I decided that if it was only going to get worse from running I should take two days off instead of one after this week.
