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- Ripped the band-aid off this morning with a my first little tempo run in quite some time. 2.3 warmup, 5k tempo in 19:06, then 5.2 mile cooldown. Could have pushed harder on the tempo, but I wanted to see how my body would feel with doing a bit more speed. Overall felt good to go faster today! Also got my blood work done yesterday, checking my CBC and iron levels, to see if my levels are improved and where they should be. Hopefully everything there has improved!

AM- 6.4 easy from home before leaving for Boulder Running Camp 2019. Really excited to run with others from all around the world and learn from the best!

PM- First run with everyone that is doing the camp. 3.7 miles easy on the Rocky Flats Trailhead. People that are doing the camp are from all over, Venezuela, Cuba, Miami, New York, Spain, and then there is me from Utah lol! Everyone doing the camp is really nice, and supportive of everybody's running goals. Met Lindsey Flanagan tonight, who is a 2:29 marathon runner, and also took 9th place at the Boston Marathon. Day #1 of camp in the books, and excited for Day#2 tomorrow!

AM- For our morning session today of the running camp, we did a short little fartlek workout of 30 seconds on/off for about 3 miles. Nothing really hard, mostly just striding out. We did the fartlek at a nice dirt trail called the Davidson Mesa Trailhead. Boulder is such a beautiful city with plenty of awesome runners to me while staying here!

AM- Last day of the Boulder Running Camp. We ended up driving up to a place called Rollinsville, which is up in the mountains near Boulder. Mostly uphill going out, then a nice gradual downhill coming back down. Overall I really enjoyed my time here at the camp and learned a lot of good tips to apply in my own running journey!

PM- 10.6 after my anatomy final. Wasn't too bad of a test, I think that the only thing I missed on the test was a couple of the cranial nerves, but other than that I am confident I did great!

Later in the evening did a 3 mile shakeout on the TM.

AM- Ran the Sheep Creek 10k this morning. Not much of a warmup, because we had to drive almost an hour and a half to get to where they bus you to the start of the 10k race. I wanted to go somewhat hard during this race, but not to overdue it. First two miles in 6:00 and 6:15. This portion had some good downhill in it, so it wasn't very difficult. Next two miles: 6:26 and 6:56. Was starting to slow down during this portion of the race, but was actually starting to feel better. Last two miles were 6:48 and 6:53. Probably the last four miles of the race were taken somewhat conservative, but I was still pushing the pace to some degree of effort. Mile cooldown afterward. I got my CBC lab results back from last Wednesday, and I am still quite anemic with a hemoglobin level of 10.0 and iron at 24. This can definitely cause some of the symptoms that I have had as of late, like shortness of breath, dizziness, etc. I felt better today than I thought I would though, and I am still working towards getting better from where I was at two months ago.

AM- Treadmill shakeout this morning. Looking like I will hit around 65 miles this week with the Ashley 50 Mile Relay on Saturday. Doing it as a two man team with my old cross country teammate Austin Valentine. Should be a fun day running high in altitude!

AM- Today we I ran the Ashley 50 Mile Ultra Relay as a two-man team with my old high school cross country teammate, Austin Valentine. I did this same relay last year as a four-man team, so this year I wanted to try something different and do the two-man instead. I am pretty sure that the total distance was actually a little bit over 48 miles, based on the strava data and leg distances. My first two legs were pretty difficult with over 1,000 ft climb in 6.6 miles for my first leg, and then about 550 ft of climbing in my second leg, which was about 4 miles. I ended up having some pretty bad cramping in these legs, because of the hills and maybe because of my low iron levels. Still working on getting that back to normal. My last two legs had more downhill, which was nice because I could really start to pick it up towards the end. We ended up taking second place overall, so we were happy with the results. It was also a nice day of a long run!

AM- 12.3 on Kid's Canal Rd. My calves were sore yesterday and they were somewhat sore this morning as well. Probably from the 8 mile downhill leg on Saturday relay race. Still felt good to loosen up some during this run.

PM- Easy 10k in the evening. Felt pretty good! 7:40 average.

AM- Was wanting to do a tempo this morning, but breathing and legs were not cooperating this morning. Got about .7 into the tempo, and just called it there. Easy mileage after to get to a little over 13 for today. See how I am feeling tomorrow, and might add in a little bit of something to mix things up.

AM- Ran two miles on Aggie heading towards HW 40, then went back towards the college and ran home from there. Picked up the pace a little with less than a half mile left. Got home, drank some water, then headed back out for another 5.1 easy miles. Overall felt good!

AM- 2 mile shakeout on the treadmill. Endo appointment today in Salt Lake for a diabetes checkup. Also running a 5k in South Jordan later tonight, which should be fun!

PM- Ran a 5k tonight after my diabetes appointment. The race started at about 7 pm, and I my legs were feeling pretty fresh tonight, but I wasn't sure how well my breathing would hold up with my low iron levels. Did a mile warmup, then did a few strides and some drills. Went out too quick, at about 5:30 pace. This was a mistake, because it more than likely made my breathing worse. 6:25 first mile. Legs were feeling pretty good, but my breathing was definitely suffering after that first mile split. Slowed down quite a bit for the second mile in 7:00. Interestingly, I was somewhat able to break through some of my shortness of breath in the last mile and focus on a pace somewhere around 6:40-6:45. This 5k was short, being about 2.7. 2 mile cooldown afterwards on the Jordan River Parkway Trail. Just going to continue watching how I feel when I push the pace, and try to make some good progress!

AM- Another 12.5 this morning. Still am experiencing some low iron symptoms, which makes me not feel like doing any workouts. I guess I will just do what I can at Big Cottonwood.

PM- 4.2 miles after dinner. I have been feeling really good on these evening runs lately, and enjoyed them quite well after my studies.

AM- Had a really solid long run this morning. Started on Kid's Canal Road, then turned going up towards Maeser 7-11. Came back down through HW 40 and back up through Naples to home.  7:07 average. I ran this same route last year on this same labor day weekend, and averaged practically the same pace, which I think is kind of ironic haha. Did a 1.6 mile cooldown afterward, just making loops around home. 18.6 for the day to end a solid week of mileage.
