Quality stuff lol. &nbsp;Then morgan decided she didn&#39;t want to be in the guys heat so I didn&#39;t even push her cuz she went home. cool down with Jerry and Seth. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 18 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 17, 2017 <p>Juniors were registering for classes and Seth had to pick up someone for something so I just ran by myself. &nbsp;Started at my house and decided I needed a good mountainy/trail run so I headed up to Bonneville and instead of going on the trail I went up on one of the trails that broke off of it. &nbsp;Went up about 500 ft. and it was pretty dang steep so got like no mileage from that. &nbsp;But found a sick trail that went across above Bonneville so took that for a while then it connected on to Bonneville and ran on that. &nbsp;Pretty enjoyable run.</p> <p>Shout out to Coach RyBy and Coach Courtney and Riley for killing it in the marathon! &nbsp;</p> Mon, 17 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 14, 2017 <p>Courtney and ryan said just 5 or 6 since we struggled in the workout yesterday. &nbsp;Went 5. &nbsp;Then played some basketball after. &nbsp;Was planning on going to the meet but i have 2 games of church ball tonight in the regional tournament so stayed home for that.&nbsp;</p> <p>Well basketball was great. &nbsp;Won both games, one against a team that demolished craik&#39;s ward yesterday. We got them&nbsp;42-40. &nbsp;Then we won the other one 72-62 which was madi hafen&#39;s ward. &nbsp;Pretty crazy games. &nbsp;Played around 60 of the 80 minutes and probably got the most playing time of everyone on my team. Got a nice bruise on my knee and hip and some cuts and blisters but all for a good cause. &nbsp;We&#39;re in the finals on tuesday so I&#39;m ready to go win again hopefully!&nbsp;</p> Fri, 14 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 13, 2017 <p>Choke and joke of a workout. &nbsp;10x400, it was super windy. &nbsp;Went 64, 64, 65, 65, 65, 66, 66, 66, then idk what I hit for the last 2 cuz courtney made us take off our watches so we couldn&#39;t know the times. &nbsp;Felt super weak all through the day. &nbsp;In english I was tired after lifting a book out of my backpack so I kind of figured it was gonna be a buckle of a workout. &nbsp;Cool fact though is Elder Christofferson served his mission in the Argentina Cordoba Mission! &nbsp;Also there are basically all natives in my mission so I&#39;m gonna be one of very few white people there. &nbsp;Good luck to everyone racing today!</p> <p>Church ball regionals was tonight! &nbsp;Our team won by over 20! &nbsp;55-33. &nbsp;Scored 14 points, 7 steals, 4 rebounds, idk how many assists but i think around 5. &nbsp;Also got fouled pretty hard and hit my head on the wall and landed on my shoulder which it hurts. &nbsp;Oh well, all for the good of church ball and all the fans screaming at the refs who didn&#39;t call a foul on that... smh.

Justin lead off and got us in 4th I think. Then Josh held and seth got it in 5th I think but all in a tight group except af. Then seth held and gave it to me with the rest of the group and I was able to hold them off for a second place finish behind US #1 all time American Fork! Split 4:15 is what my coach had me at so new pr and didn't feel that dead so I'm ready to go sub 9 in the 3200! Fri, 07 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 06, 2017 Easy four in the hot humidity of california at 2:00 in the afternoon Thu, 06 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 05, 2017 <p>Not too good of a workout. &nbsp;It was at 7:00 in the morning, goal was 8x400 at 65, 64, 63, 62 and repeat. &nbsp;Went 68, 63, 64, 64, 65, 67, 65, 66. &nbsp;It was quite chilly and my legs felt flatter than a pancake that was stomped on and then rolled over by a steamroller. &nbsp;And my stomach wasn&#39;t cooperating. &nbsp;</p> Wed, 05 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 04, 2017 <p>7 easy on black trail. &nbsp;Good times! 7:15 average so nice and calm. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 04 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 03, 2017 <p>2 mile warm up, then (600, 400)x4. &nbsp;Since justin wasn&#39;t here I decided to start out more conservative and then build up which was actually really great! &nbsp;went 1:43, 66, 1:41, 65, 1:41, 65, 1:38, and 64. Felt good cuz it wasn&#39;t death straight from the start. &nbsp;2.5 mile cool down. &nbsp;Then iced in the river by the golf course cuz the water was running which was a blessing. Excited for arcadia!</p> Mon, 03 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 01, 2017 <p>Well quite a day. &nbsp;Did the mile and went 4:22 which I was wanting for better. &nbsp;Kind of gave up the last lap and felt super weak. &nbsp;I&#39;ve been kind of burnt out from running. &nbsp;800 later and gave up the last part as well. &nbsp;Went 2:02. &nbsp;Talked to my coach and we&#39;re going to change up training for a little bit to get me back fully so excited for that. &nbsp;Also decided to do the invitational 3200 and not the 1600. &nbsp;I&#39;ll be ready for that. &nbsp;Also shout out to everyone who raced, but extra shout out to Collin, Austin, and&nbsp;Gan, coming off of injuries and killing it, Collin making progress every week, Austin going 4:31, and&nbsp;Gan for PRing</p> Sat, 01 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 31, 2017 <p>5.11 in the morning. &nbsp;Nice and easy pace!</p> Also made the invitational in the 4x1600 3200 and 1600 so I'm dropping either the 3200 or 1600, I don't know which one yet though. Fri, 31 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 30, 2017 <p>Looped around highland then down to AF and back. &nbsp;Then did 2x400 barefoot on the grass just for a good time. &nbsp;First 5 miles were kind of hard but then my legs started feeling really good which was nice! Also we had some Olympic Gold medalists here, 1 won triple jump in 1984 and the other one long jump 2016 and we had a banquet with them which was cool!</p> Thu, 30 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 29, 2017 Mile warm up cuz there was a junior high meet going on very soon after. Then 10x400. Went 63, 63, 63, 64, 63, 65, 64, 65, 66, 64. Then 4 mile cool down/distance run. Pretty happy. My back and breathing were much better cuz I was able to see Ron yesterday so Shout out to him for being a miracle worker! Wed, 29 Mar 2017 06:00:00
