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.

AM- Woke up at 4:50, hydrated, got some quick breakfast, and got on the UTA tracks to head up to the U for the start. Did a mile warmup before and some strides and drills. Legs were feeling tight before the start, which was something I was a little worried about. Miles 1-3: 6:18, 6:35, 6:00. Feeling good in this first part of the race. Miles 4-7: 6:08, 6:03, 6:31, 6:17. At this point in the race, I realized that time was out the window, but I continued to work up the hills in this portion of the race. Miles 8-10: 6:38, 6:23, 6:29. Legs were feeling heavier and heavier during this portion. Miles 11-13: 6:08, 6:14, 6:06. Overall I am pretty happy with how I finished strong in the last 5k or so, but I definitely could have performed better, if I had prepared for this race better. In the last 3 to 4 months, I should have done more tempos, long PROGRESSION runs, and just the little things, like stretching, drills, etc. I know that my probable during the race wasn't breathing and lungs, because my average heart rate was 133 bpm for the entire race, but I could tell that my major probable was muscuslar endurance in my legs and core. I just needed to work the legs a bit more. Still a very fun race, and a good workout to get motivated for future races this year and for a good summer buildup. I don't think that I will be running much next week, but will start my late spring, early summer build up in a couple of weeks.
