My race today was hard to say the least. First lap, I felt good and came in at a 70. Second lap, I surged on the back stretch, but the pace became really difficult to maintain and those guys I had just passed with my surge passed me again. At this point my body was pretty wrecked and I was just holding on for dear life. Third lap, pretty much the same thing as the second lap, I was not feeling good. Fourth lap, my legs felt like lead but I managed to sprint the last 75 meters and pass a couple guys. The race did not go how I would have liked, my legs were just extremely unusually fatigued. Then I realized that I have only really been eating 2.5 meals or less every day for the passed week, so I will work on that going into next week and the multitude of speed workouts planned. Shout out to Connor who went under 4:30 today, state qualifying is within reach man!

3 more miles today, I'm ready to up it to 4 next week! I've been focusing on keeping the pace slower for my easy runs so I can better recover from hard workouts. I hope next week's workouts go well.

I got some good distance in today, and I was privileged enough to have adequate miles to run with Thom, Sean, and Chicken Nugget for a portion of the run. Shoutout to my boys Connor, Sean, Thom, and Brady for killing it at Arcadia!

I got in a quality speed workout today, 6 x 1:00 sprints up airport hill. I was only able to do five of them though, due to my lower mileage. I was able to stay pretty consistently in the top third of the group, right around Strrt and Matt. Of course it hurt pretty bad, but I am super glad that I am able to start doing these quality workouts again!

Nice distance run in the freaking snow today, what's with this?! We got more snow in one day in the middle of April than we did in the entire winter. That's kinda jacked up. Anyway, my run felt good, and my average pace was 7:09. I got some multivitamins and started taking those because to put it lightly I have been wrecked to the extreme the past couple weeks, so I thought I'd try something to fix it. I must have been low in something, because holy crap my life has changed! I had to force myself to keep slowing down today, when a couple days ago I could barely keep a 7:30. I'm looking forward to the Utah County invite this weekend! Shout out to sophomore Shaquille Walker from BYU for running a 1:45.78 800m, the fastest time in the nation and a new school record for BYU!

Sick race today, I felt so freaking good it was unreal. Note to self; always give your body what it needs to recover. 2:02 in the 800 today. Also somehow I managed to negative split, 62 then a 60. The first lap was nice, I got a little boxed in at the start, but who doesn't? On the back stretch I picked it up a little bit and passed most of the guys, and stuck with the leaders. The first 200m was 29 or right around 30, so that's cool, but I got stuck in lane 2 coming around the bend. On the home stretch, I passed more guys and got into 3rd place. On the back stretch of the second lap I passed another guy and was gaining on the leader at the 200m mark, but he really turned it on and kinda flew away. I picked it up as well and stayed in second through the finish. I felt great with a 5 second pr! Shout out to Kobe for letting me borrow his shades during my race, Connor for officially qualifying for state in the 3200 by 2 seconds, and Brady for finally getting a sick 3200 in the books!

Jamie kindly allowed me to bump my mileage up again, 6 a day this week. Today's run was a good one, but I probably should have held back a bit more on the way back to the school, as it was supposed to be an easy recovery day. Shoutout to the chumps who flipped me off and swerved towards me on the overpass today, you just hate me 'cause you aint me.

We had one heck of a speed workout today. 3 sets of 4 400s, all of which were hecka fast. the first set was supposed to be current mile pace, second set a little faster, and third set even faster. The first set I hit 70, 68, 70, and another 70. The second set was 68, 68, 69, and another 68. The last set was 67, 66, 65, and 65. I was very pleased with how this workout turned out because going into it, my legs didn't feel completely fresh, but I was still able to hit my paces for the most part, and mostly stick with the group. I believe this is now officially added to the list of favorite workouts, right up there with 20x400, and 18x300. I would also like to mention that I don't know how today would have gone if Strrt wasn't there to push me. We kind of teamed up on the majority of those 400s, and having someone right there really does help quite a bit. So shoutout to Strrt for being a bro!

Today's run was a nice easy 6 miles, my legs were pretty darn wrecked from yesterday's workout and not going to bed until 12:45 due to homework. I'm glad I got the mileage in though and it was nice to have an easy paced day! Good luck to all my teammates racing today against PG, go kill it!

Also good luck to the members of team pre who decided to try their luck in the 4x100 in their trainers. Don't drop the baton!

Not exactly what I hoped for in the mile today. I was going to try and qualify for state, and the first lap was on pace. Then some guys passed me, and they passed me pretty quick, and I just panicked. I didn't handle the situation well at all. I'm pretty sure I physically could have qualified, but I was not there mentally.

Shout out to Maddy for breaking the school record in the 800, she got 2:16, and then had to run the 800 in the medley right after. She killed it!

Speed workout today, 200m, 800m, 400m, 200m, 200m. Two sets of that. Everything but the 800 was supposed to be at mile pace, and the 800s were 2-mile pace. My legs felt tired, due to my inadequate sleep last night, I'll get on top of that so I can do well at BYU thus weekend! Shoutout to everyone who competed at the tri-meet today!
