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- 4 miles at 5am before going to the mountain to do some work, and did a little bit of fishing afterward. Really wanted to workout with Eugene tonight but my Grandma needed help with her water system and I just didn't have time. Going back to the mountain tomorrow to lay fence down and prepare it to be pounded in. Probably will do a run up there after working on the fence. I really like running up there on the dirt roads.

AM- 6 miles easy on Diamond Mountain. Didn't really do a lot of work just setting the post up for the fencing that we may do next Friday. Average pace 7:15. Perfect running temperatures on the mountain. May do some more tonight, and then tomorrow night I am doing a steady run with Eugene. Should be fun.

PM- 2 mile shakeout plus core and crossfit lifting session.

AM- 4 miles easy 7:48 pace.

PM- The original plan for tonights workout was to do a 6 or 7 mile tempo with Eugene, but the Relay for Life was doing their walkathon on the track so we decided to go do Yellow Hill Repeats!!! Classic. 2 mile warmup, then did 2 ladders up. Felt pretty good. But definitely not in 5k or 10k shape right now. Hoping to get some more speed in next week and a tempo. Cooldown afterward. Thanks for the workout Eugene. Good times!!!

AM- Tempo Tuesday. Mile warmup then started my tempo run which was planned to be run at 6:00-6:15 pace until the last mile and try to go sub 6. Felt sluggish the first mile running only a 6:29. Then started to pick up the pace. 6:12, 6;06, 6:11, 5:57. Was pretty tired after this especially doing it alone. Happy with the effort though, and an overall good pace for a tempo. Cool down to get to 7. Gonna try and do a shakeout for my lunch break. I'll take it slower cause of the tempo.

PM- 3 mile shakeout. I guess that the pace wasn't too slow but was feeling good. 6:52 average

AM- 7 miles with strides and drills afterward. Went hiking with Clayton, Todd, and Jake afterward. It was a good time. Afterward went up to te cabin and shot some prairie dogs, then we saw a badger. They are really rare to see, so we were pretty excited.

AM- Awsome workout with Eugene this morning. Met up at the track and did a solid warmup, then the workout was 5x600, 5x200. My goal pace was to hold 75-80 seconds for the first 400 and keep it for the last 200. Was hoping to keep up with Eugene for most of the repeats but he got me by like 8-10 seconds each repeat. On the 200s I felt more like I was striding out than anything else. I want to try to get faster on these track workouts so I can do well in my 10k debut at Deseret. And keep up with Eugene Nathaniel Grindle III. Haha!!! Overall good training session today.

AM- 5 miles before it actually turned into a tornado outside haha. Felt good.

PM- 3 mile shakeout at my Grandma's house. Felt smooth except for the 60 mph winds that were going on nonstop. Had a good time hanging out with the fam today.

AM- Woke up this morning feeling pretty trashed. Had to wake up at 3:30 to go to the mountain for a bit. Didn't really have a ton of motivation to do a workout when I got back, but I still was determined to get something good in today. Went up to the track when I got home, and saw that there was a bunch of football players doing laps and such around the track. I then went down to the walking park and did my workout there instead. After a good warmup, started the workout. 8x400m with a 1 minute rest. The first two were right around what I wanted, but I could feel some of that lactic acid. 76,74. Next two felt a lot better, 73,75. The rest were all around that pace. 72,73,73,74. Good workout. Would have like to have worked out with Eugene and Clayton, but yah gotta do what yah gotta do. Cooldown to 8 for the morning.

PM- 6.5 miles at what was suppose to be an easy run, but ended up being a little faster. Average pace 6:38. Last mile felt great with a 6:12. Getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow, so won't be able to run for a few days.

AM- 40 minutes of assault bike. Surpisingly my mouth felt pretty good considering I got my wisdom teeth out 3 days ago. Don't know if I will run tomorrow, just because sometimes jumping around makes my jaw feel weird. I should definitely be back running by Monday though.

AM- 3 miles very slow. My jaw felt weird, and I thought that I was going to have to go just 2 miles today. I think that I will be able to try some more tomorrow, but I don't want to push anything too hard right now. One good thing that came out of this last week of having lots of rest was now my legs are fresher than ever. The only reason I went slow was my jaw, other than that I felt like going low 6's for 5-6 miles. Sadly this week will probably be a very low mileage week.

AM- Original plan for today was to go to the track and do some 400 strides today, but football had taken over again. So instead I went to Legacy Park to do some running. 2 mile warmup at around 6:50 pace then did 4x400 strides in 73,73,74,71. My interval training is starting to feel better, and that I took a few days off last week helped with fresh legs today. Did 3 miles after with the last mile in 6:04. Felt really easy and smooth today. Gonna go for a double today, and do a run later tonight. 

PM- 4 miles plus core

AM- 3 miles plus some solid lifting today. Did 8 sets of 10 unbroken power cleans. First time cleaning in a long time while doing any sort of lifting, so it felt really good to get that in today.

PM- 5 miles. It was about 93 degrees outside while on this run, so the pace was slower, 7:33 average. Going to lagoon tomorrow, so it should be a fun day.

AM- Solid workout today. Met up with Eugene today to do the workout that he had done just previously. He was there to keep me motivated/get my splits. It helped a lot to have him there to push me when I may not have been super strong mentally. Workout was 16x400m with a 200m recovery between each. I wasn't exactly sure what to think of the 200m rest, just cause I am not used to that short of rest between intervals. After about 5-6 in, I finally started to feel a good rhythm on the pace. Averaged about 78-79 on all of them. It may not sound very impressive, but I am happy with it, just because it is a lot of speed work. Cooldown at the park afterward with Eugene, and then a little bit more solo. "Another one in the bag", as Mo Farah would say. Thanks for joining me Eugene for a solid session.

PM- I was super lazy today. Eugene told me last night that he was going to the golf course for some 1k repeats. Scheduled to workout at 5am, my alarm went off at 4. I have no excuses, just pure laziness. Even though I didn't go run the 1k repeats I still wanted to get something in today. I did a 4 mile progression tempo. I did not have exact paces set for each mile, I just went off of effort. Splits were consistent except for the first one. 5:48, 6:18, 6:02, 5:56. Felt good even thought the first one was a little too fast starting out. Once again sorry Eugene for being lazy and missing the workout this morning.

AM- 3 mile shakeout at Sugarhouse Park. Felt sluggish for a bit, but then the legs loosened up.

PM- 5 miles after getting home from my endocrinologist diabetes appointment. Had a good hemoglobin A1C of 6.6 so that was good news to hear. My last A1C before this was a 10.5, which is very bad.

AM- I just haven't felt like myself the last 3 days. My easy day runs have just not felt good and normal like they should. I have been super tired and not very motivated to get workouts in and just have been very lethargic. Felt worn out when I woke up this morning and just did not have any energy to get up. Warmed up 2 miles, then did 10x 3minutes hard at around 5k pace. From the get go I was struggling to keep everything together. The only thing that was not hindered was my breathing. I was just happy to get through the workout. Maybe I am just a little dehydrated with it being 90 plus degrees everyday. Hoping to get this under control and if anyone has any tips, I would be pleased for a little advice on what to do when you just aren't feeling right on your runs and workouts. Thank you.
