One of the coolest but weirdest runs ever. I had to leave for engineering camp by 5:30 so I got up at 3:45 and started my run. I ran a big loop down riverside over foremaster then past the temple and back. I saw maybe 10 or so cars and ran the roads it was weird being out so early but also really cool

I ran up In Logan today. I ran from the engineering dorms and ran down to first dam by the river trail. It was cold but felt really good. I was feeling somewhat slow though.

Today was epic. I ran down from old Maine and took the street down past a ton of very cool houses. I was moving pretty quick and made it a long ways into the valley and back.

Today was great. I am back in St.George and ran the river trail. I did 75 minutes and was booking it on the pickups. I made it all the way to Dixie crossfire and back. The trail was super crowded with people looking for the summit rock.

I did 42 minutes today with the team. I was so excited I finally got to go to practice. It was tough though. We were moving super quick up the plateau over by Sullivan. Then we were going super fast afterwards. My legs were way sore but it was a good run.

Today was epic. I went on a night run with Colton corbin logan and Parker. We started on a trail run and then realized we were dumb and the sun was serting so we flipped and ran green springs. We had a few really fast splits our quickest mile being 6:39. It felt good to move so quick. It's good to be back running with the team.

Sadly still out of town. I was up at boys state today and they wouldn't let us leave campus. That was really frustrating. Their campus is barely over a mile long so I just had to run a ton of laps. A total of 38 minutes of running.

Today I went on a long run cause I wasn't able to run the past few days. We were getting to bed every night at one because we had to write essays and then getting up at 6, and sadly we had no downtime over the past few days either. I'm glad to be back though. I ran the river trail and made it way further than usual. I ran all the way past Dixie cross fit and back pretty quick. It felt good to run again. I also saw 3 bobcats on the trail while I was running. I had no clue what they were till I got home and looked them up so that was pretty crazy.

Today was my first long run with the team. It was a ton of fun. We ran into hell hole back to the field up the river trail and then through Washington. It was tough but good. Also shout out to Nathan who threw up and then kept running. Definitely a rough a run.

Today has been my best run of the season so far. We were doing hills today, and I was slightly nervous because the last time we had done the grapevine hill I was struggling a little bit compared to the other guys. Coach robs had us run through a visualization excersise before we left. I think that helped me stay a lot more calm during the run. I am going to start using that even more for sure. I got to the hill and we did 5 reps of 1 minute hills and 1 rep of 85 seconds. We also had an extra minute between rep 3 and 4. We started off on the first hill from a point farther back than where we usually start. I finished the first rep with our top guys and started thinking how easy that felt. After that I made sure not to slow down at all. I stayed towards the front of the pack the rest of the workout. Around the third rep I remember thinking back to a lesson coach had given about working on your weaknesses and turning them into strengths as well as another lesson about breaking down the mental barriers that hold you back. Both lessons helped push me through the workout and reminded me about how important the harder workouts are to improving. This definitely was one of the workouts that helped me strengthen my weaknesses and get past those mental barriers. On the last rep of 85 seconds I made it further than I ever had gone up the hill and finished fairly strong. This run was definitely rewarding.

We met at confluence park this morning and ran into green valley and up to the top of Bloomington. I felt really sore today from squatting. It was still a solid run and we ran throug the golf course.

Today was nuts. I can officially say I'm sick of running on my own. We left for Vegas Regis morning at 5 in the morning. We got there at 7 and then I ran the lake mead trail for an hour and 25 minutes. The night before I did 20 minutes of yoga it felt Incredible but I still felt extremely sore this morning. For the first quarter of the run I kept my pace below 7 and was moving really quick, but when I flipped, my legs began cramping and my pace died down a ton. The second half of he run was very difficult. It was all uphill. Eventually I finished the run. My pace was very bad the very last two miles. I was barely moving up the hills. I checked my garment and it turned out me chancge in elevation had been 1400 feet and it was a 100 degrees out for the majority of the run. When I finished I was exhausted. I could feel the salt on my face and I was super dehydrated. I downed a ton of water afterwards. I can't wait to get back to st.george to tun with the team.

I ran 38 minutes and accidentally had a negative split. My legs are feeling pretty rough, and I made he mistake of eating dinner about an hour before hand, but I'm glad I got the run in today. I'm feeling just a little weak and am somewhat nervous for tomorrow's run. I'm going to make sure to take some time to ice.

I went 65 minutes today with the 3s. I came out feeling really really sore, but as we kept running my legs stretched out more and more which was nice. We went under the freeway tunnel from the dirt mile to the hills across the freeway. I dropped my shirt as we crossed and sadly we did not go back that way so I had to go back for it afterwards. We ended up going from Dino tracks to grapevine then back to Washington elementary. On the way back I totally tripped and got myself covered in dirt that was entertaining. After the run I'm feeling pretty worn down, but ready for tomorrow.

Today was awesome! This was probably one of my best workouts I've ever had. I'm starting to see a lot of training pay off. Today we had a 60 minute run with 25 minutes of tempos in between our warm up and cool down. When we started running I was feeling really nervous about the workout. My legs have been really sore from the past few weeks, but things ended up going very well. I stayed with the top guys for four miles. They finished about 400 meters after I stopped. I think a few things helped a lot with keeping this pace. One thing I focused on was my breathing. I was able to keep my breath under control by staying calm and not thinking too much while I was running. Often times I'll try and talk myself through a workout but this time I avoided it. I tried to shut my brain off and focus only on running with the pack. This seemed to help me not worry so much about hyperventilating allowing me to focus on keeping a strong stride so my legs wouldn't die out on me. Maintaining my form also really helped with my strides. Also I think my dieting has helped a lot as well. For the first time ever I'm completely off of soda and all carbonated drinks. Also Ive only been allowing myself one food item a week with added sugars in it. I think both things have helped a ton with running. One thing that frustrates me about my run though was that I didn't finish the last 400 meters with the guys. The whole run I was determined to get all four laps in with the 3s and by the last stretch I was having a difficult time hanging on but managed to do it. Once we finished the lap I stopped. Logan, Carson, and Alex finished out the last stretch left. It made me think of how close i was and how big of a difference hanging on a little longer can make.  Thankfully I was still able to stay with them right up until the last minute, but next time I'd like to finish right wth them. I went home after and checked out my splits. My last 3 miles alone were only 24 seconds of my 5k pr. I'm pumped knowing that I can do even more now. I hope to keep working and improving. It's been a lot of fun.

15 minute run. It was burning outside but it felt good to stretch my legs after this morning. Can't wait for tomorrow.

We went 60 minutes today. We ran from coral canyon park over the subdivisions being developed onto the road behind the industrial park on the way to sand hallow and back. I was feeling pretty worn out and my legs are the sorest they've been so far, but I still felt pretty strong running.
