Running Accomplishments:

Freshmen Year-  When I started on Uintah I really didn't know how I would do. Ran a 5k or two and then just started running with the team. The older kids really liked me and called me the good freshmen. I then made varsity, which kinda ticked Nathan off but I was happy with it. Time trials I ran like 18 flat. Along with Mason,Connor, and other people. The first few races went really good then I went to the doctor and he told me to get fat because he thought I was too skinny so the second part of my season was pretty crappy. I didn't get to go to state and was ticked because Nathan beat me at region.

 

Sophomore Year- This was the year that I got that dark Cherokee blood running through me and then I decided to just haul butt the whole season because I was ticked at what happened to me freshman year. The first few meets of cross country and the whole season was great. I was able to go to state and got a low seventeen for 3 miles. And track went better too. Because normally I love cross country more than track. It was a pretty good year for this Cherokee kid.

It has been a week since Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and 7 others lost their lives in a helicopter crash outside L.A. I just felt like doing some type of workout this morning in tribute to all those that lost their lives in the crash. The reps are schemed intentionally for them. The numbers 24 and 8 are for Kobe Bryant's jersey numbers during his NBA career. The 9 is for the nine people that lost their lives in the crash, and 81 is for the career high points that Kobe scored in a game against the Toronto Raptors. I know that people die everyday, and that everyone's lives are important, I just wanted to do this workout today, because before I started running, basketball was my favorite sport. #MambaMentality

AM- 2 mile warmup, then right into the "Double Crossfit Workout"

Double Unders

Weighted Dumbell Situps

3 Minute Rest

20 rounds of:

Overall I felt really good during most of this workout. I have improved on the double unders and weighted situps by about 30 seconds, and my wattage power on the bike keeps getting stronger, so that is good. Stomach felt a bit full from going to breakfast for my nephews birthday, but other than that, everything was solid.

PM- Same 5k route as last night from the hotel. I am just going to treat tomorrow's half marathon as an LSD long run and probably pace my friend Stephanie, who hopes to run the best she can, even though she has had problems with her achilles lately. We had a pretty busy day today driving up to Sedona and doing a few hikes. Coming down here brings back memories of driving hundreds of miles to run NXR with Eugene and my other cross country pals! Good times!

AM- Today I ran the Mesa/Phoenix Half Marathon, basically as a long run. I originally was planning on running the marathon, because I wanted to make a qualifying time for NYC Marathon, which is 2:53 or under. I never really like to cheat myself out on whatever my current fitness is, because in running it cannot be "faked". My training so far has not been up to par of what I would like, and I am not in 2:50 shape as of right now, however, this doesn't mean that I can't get into sub 2:50 shape later in the year. From the start of the race, I knew that I wasn't going to race the half, so I decided to run with the 1:40 pacer for this race. I could have went faster, but I am not sure how much faster. Overall, I really enjoyed the trip down to Phoenix and especially the weather! Boston is approaching soon!

AM- 5.5 miles on the tready. So I have a bit of an update on my anemia/low iron. I just talked to my endocrinologist (type 1 diabetes doctor) yesterday, and she has a possible answer to my low iron and a way that I will be able to increase it. It turns out that I am gluten intolerant right. Even though I have been taking iron supplements for quite some time now, they are never going to help, because my gut needs to heal itself and the only way to do this is by consuming zero gluten for at least two-three months. I think that this has been a problem for me for quite some time now, because I have not felt like the same runner since the Las Vegas Marathon in 2018 when I ran 2:55. My running performance has slowly dwindled down to almost nothing, and it has been quite frustrating to not be able to feel like my normal self. Honestly, I am quite surprised that I have been able to run the marathons and others races in the last year, because of my hemoglobin being so low. Eating gluten free is not the easiest thing to do, because it is in so many different foods (anything that contains wheat, barley, rye, etc), but I am going to give it my best effort, because running and staying healthy mean a lot to me. Boston is only two months away, so I need to make sure that I can make improvements on my iron-deficiency anemia before then. Training will probably have its ups and downs for the next couple of months, but I am hoping I can make some good progress. Sorry for the long post, but with type 1 diabetes and gluten intolerance, I just needed to vent a bit. Anyways wish me luck!

AM- 8.5 miles from Aggie, looping up to Maesar 7-11 then back to home. Strides and drills afterward. I have only been gluten free for a couple days, and I think that my body already is feeling better. I have mostly been eating fruits, vegetables, salads, sweet potatoes, with some certified gluten free snacks along with them. Hoping to see some improvements from inflammation and energy levels over the next few weeks.

PM- 10k from Vernal Park. 8:02 average. Felt somewhat good today, would have been better with the cold breeze, but still glad I am trying to get back to my normal consistency of day to day running. One thing that I have noticed since I have gone gluten free over the last couple days, is that I am frequently much hungrier than when I wasn't gluten free.

AM- Another 10k. 7:55 average. I have been gluten free for almost a week, and I think that I can already tell that I am feeling better. Stopping on some of my runs, for even just 10-15 seconds at a time, helps me to get a re-boost. The low iron might take some time, but progress will come for sure!

Weighted Dumbell Situps

3 minute rest

20 rounds of:
