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- 16 mile long run basically all around Vernal. At first I was thinking about only doing 10 miles, because I was really just exhausted. After a few miles I started to get moving pretty good and felt good. Happy to cap off a 70 mile week!!!

AM- 5 miles easy. Legs still had a good pop to them

PM- Was supposed to do 2x1.5 miles at 10k pace. I got out and it was 92 degrees. I felt as though I was somewhat dehydrated and so I got into it and did the first repeat. Ran that in 8:22. I was not tired after that, but quite dehydrated so I just did another 800m in 2:33. Cooldown back to the house afterward. I am happy with this because I didn't feel the greatest so I know that I can run faster next time I try this workout. Also my calves were starting to cramp and get tight, so I am guessing I didn't hydrate quite well enough. Pretty good day of running overall

AM- Strength and core training today. Did 1.5 easy then some assault bike sprints, abs, pushups, and plyos. 1.5 mile cooldown. Going to the Uintah Invitational to cheer on my fellow high school friends, so I probably will get a few miles in there as well.

PM- 4 miles jogging around the park before the Uintah Meet. S/O to Kedric for taking first for the boys, and Rachel and Rylie coming in 1 and 2.

AM- 3 easy miles then did one mile pickup in 5:58. Cooldown half mile afterward. I'm running the Uintah Half Marathon on Saturday, so I am excited to race. But I haven't raced since July and my workouts haven't been great as far as speed goes but we will see how things turn out.

PM- 3 miles easy. Legs are feeling good

AM- Race: I decided to run the this race, get a feel for the half marathon distance again. Ty ran the race too, and he wanted me to pace him for a PR (his best half is a 1:28). So I decided to hang with him the first few miles of the race, as long as there was no one in front that I would compete against for the win. First 5 miles were 6:36, 6:35, 6:26, 6:21, 6:34. At this point, I decided to start moving up a little bit, and get into a better rhythm. 6:18, 6:15, 6:10, and 6:09 for the next few miles. Ty had lost me by this point in the race, and was back quite a ways so I just kept going. 6:06, 6:11, 6:15, 6:19 for the last 4 miles of the race. Felt really good, even at 6 flat pace, so I figured that I could have ran a 1:19-1:20 if I hadn't paced Ty for almost the first half of the race. S/O to him for getting a PR. Overall a good race and had some good pancakes afterwards.

AM- 3 miles easy. Legs actually felt quite good. Very little quad soreness. After reflecting on the race, I do believe that since I have started doing longer runs on the weekends; it has been helping me alot. Low 6 minute pace felt really easy for me yesterday. These next 2 weeks are gonna be a little different, because I have another half in 3 weeks which means I want to have fresh legs still.

PM- 4 miles easy. Felt like I had some good pop in my legs. 6:52 average
