Mile warmup. 10 min easy to the rail trail. Fartlek was 15X30 sec pushes with 90 sec distance in between. Pace range was pretty wide (3:55-4:30) because of the hills. Saw Watson and Mario, they're super cool. Average for the whole run was 6:20.

Mile warmup and drills. Much needed recovery run. Ran by Luke's and picked him up, went around the roads by his house, then I went back to the high school, 6:50 average pace. Missed running with that kid, he's pretty cool for a freshman. Perfect weather today too

Busy day, started my run at 5:30 so half of it was in the dark. 1 mile warmup then long run, went on the JRT golf course way. It got hecka slushy going up past the windmills so I turned onto redwood road at the top. Went to the bike light at mountain view corridor then turned around and went home on redwood and 2100. Cruised the last four miles, didn't push but didn't hold back. Those were 5:50-6:15. Average pace for the run was 6:25. Breeze felt amazing on the way back, this is why we run. Legs felt good, good long run, good week of training.

Bench and inverted rows before I had to go to early morning seminary.

No practice today but I didn't know we had a workout on the track so I didn't bring my stuff. Went home and changed then did a mile warmup plus 2 more miles to get back to the high school. Drills and strides then started the workout. 8X800, 200 with 30 secs after the 800s and 2:30 after the 200s. Splits were 2:20, 30, 2:18, 32, 2:21, 32, 2:21, 31, 2:20, 32, 2:21, 32, 2:20, 32, 2:21, 30. Tough workout, the wind and my stomach did not help. Cool down back to my house, saw my grandparents and they gave me a ride the rest of the way cuz I was already over mileage and it's a down week. Finished upper body lifting when I got home

Mile warmup then a mile easy and drills. 7X400m hill repeats on airport, 5 up, 2 down. 1:30 rest in between the middle repeats, jog back down in between the first and last repeats. Splits were 82, 78, 63 (down), 80, 63 (down), 81, 82. Good effort, harder than I thought it would be. 5 mile cool down, 6:50 avg pace

Mile warmup and drills. Snaked around lehi for a couple miles then did strides. 2X200m, both in 28 high, 2X100, both in 13 high.

Sickest bike ride ever and we only went 20. Austin came over and we did JRT golf course way, tried out my new Trek hybrid I got for Christmas. Got to where the trail stops at a dirt road and decided to try and find where it kept going. Found the trail and it just got lit from there. Never been on such a cool section of trail, the scenery was amazing. Stopped to eat some granola bars, wanted to keep going but we had to get back before dark. On the way back, the sunset was so bright shining on the mountains so we stopped to take that in for a while from up on the golf course. Indescribable feeling really, once in a lifetime moment and it only lasted about a minute. Epic ride, great convos, nice bike, lots of hills, wind in our faces, getting hyped, 3:45 mile without breaking a sweat, you guys have no idea how life changing this was. Words don't do it justice. Shout out to Austin cuz it wouldn't have been as sick without him. If anyone ever wants to go riding hit me up, I'm always down. It doesn't get much better than this.

Mile warmup then 2 miles easy. Gun went off and I got out good into third place. Just kept grinding, ended up getting passed by Kauffman then outkicked by Adam Wood. Felt alright but it was definitely hard to get moving and the lactic acid hit me big time in the second lap. Don't have the speed yet and I need to work on my form and kick but this was a PR and my first time under 2. A mile after, 6:50, then a mile tempo, 5:27. Then 3X400 at 2 mile, mile, 800 pace, all with full recovery. Splits for those were 70, 65, 67. The effort was there on the last one, my legs just wouldn't move faster and I was going into a gnarly headwind. Half mile to finish up.

Mile warmup. Past the farms and out towards eagle mountain and back, 6:53 avg pace.

Unfortunately my launches have started rubbing the skin off the back of my heel so I have been forced to retire them. I think I'll wash them and take them to school for the lehi vs skyridge shoe drive, along with my old zantes. Hopefully they can be of good use to somebody

Needed a trail run so I drove to skyridge and ran on the trails up there. 11 miles, counting one as warmup, the rest was 7:02 average. Saw some of the guys so I ran with them off and on, second half by myself. The trails were kinda muddy still but not too bad. Lots of hills, saw some deer 🦌. Fun stuff today

Ran to the dip trails but they were still a little to wet so I hopped on the MCT and took it to center st and down to the high school. Strides in the last couple miles, 400 in 72 then both 200s in 32. 6:35 avg pace, kinda fast cuz I had to get back for an interview. My legs are wrecked so simplot should be fun, I'll try and ice tonight

Got to the arena and did a mile on the track with a couple little strides. Warmed up another mile and a half with more strides. Gun went off and I settled into second position but let too many people go by the first 800. Didn't realize my pace was too slow until it was too late. Took the lead and tried to make up the lost time but it just wasn't going to happen. Kinda ticked at myself because I ran faster during xc practice but oh well, sub 9:20 is coming. I was the third qualifier for finals but I have sweethearts dance on Saturday so I can't race. Cool down to a canyon, found some sick trails but of course they were too muddy so I went back on the road. Still wanted to do three in the canyon so the cool down ended up being a little over 7, 7:10 average pace. Cool scenery but lots of hills, I am exhausted.

Mile warmup and drills. Down 200 S and past greenwood elementary in AF. Never really been down there so that was sick. Saw a couple deer 🦌 on the way back. Planned on going 7 but I was feeling pretty good so I did 9, 6:45 average. Brought the repetitions back out cuz they're the only shoe I have rn besides the triumphs

Mile warmup. Same run as last Saturday just longer. 7 miles at 6:35 average then a 6 mile tempo. My watch died with 3 miles to go so I used time to calculate the pace, 5:30 average for the tempo. Half marathon in 1:19:50 which is a PR, 6:05 avg pace. Felt hecka good today. Only my second time doing this run but I really like it. I'll have to apologize to my sweethearts date tonight cuz I'm pretty sure I'll pass out at some point

Mile warmup. Had a lot of crap on my mind so I just went. 10 miles, 6:20 average. Ran to the lake and looped back on the Jordan river trail. Saw the skyridge guys so I went back with them, counting that as cool down. Had French toast at the Hinckley's and had a family reunion. It was sick hanging out with them.

Biked around 15 miles on the JRT golf course way, pretty much sucked.

Biked another 35 with the Hinckley's on the Murdock canal trail. Shoutout to them for being sick bike buddies. Long rides with them are always a party. Fastest mile was 2:40, average was around 4:00. Very windy but fast and fun. My legs are wrecked

Mile warmup and drills with Brecken. 10 more minutes then fartlek: 3 sets of 2 min on, 1 min distance, 6 min on, 3 min distance. Went down main st to willow park then back past willow creek middle. Paces for the 2 min ranged from 4:55-5:00. Paces for the 6 min ranged from 5:05 to 5:15. 25 mph winds and tired legs from yesterday made for a tough workout. Cooled down to the cemetery and decided to throw it back to the whistle hill days. Did two 15 sec and one 20 sec up, then one 15 sec down. Finished up to 11, 6:10 average pace for the whole run.

Asked someone to prom instead of going to practice because I had a dentist appointment at 3:30 and I didn't want to be late to that. Ran after I got home. Mile warmup. Some more to get to the pit then the sickest workout of all time. 30 min all out in the pit with 2 steep hills thrown in. It was super wet and muddy, I was covered from the start. Coach said to start around 6:15 pace and work down but of course I started sub 5 lol. Controlled myself and cruised, ended up with a little over 5 miles, 5:58 avg pace for the 30 min. The mud made it really tough, almost lost my shoe and my balance a couple times. Fun, dirty, strong workout. Cooled down back to my house, 6:18 average for the whole run.

Phone said it felt like 13 degrees outside when I left. Mile warmup, Saratoga loop, 6:28 average pace. Saw Riley and Dallin and ran with them for a half mile. Was tempted to go back with them but that would've put me around 2.5 over and I'm already a little over this week. Training feels really good right now. French toast at the Hinckley's after, actually did a whole 5 minutes of abs, played some ping pong and got wrecked by Austin.

Church ball game later. Lost by a point cuz you can call your own fouls so the other team called a foul on us and said it was shooting even though it wasn't a foul and if it was it definitely wasn't shooting. So that was bogus but oh well it was still fun and I just realized I've written more about bball today than my run so that's great lol
