I ran for Alta high school and was trained by Coach Murphy, he is a great coach, one of the best there is. I ran for Southern Utah University for a year or two.

Am- 6 miles

Pm- 3.75 miles and then 8xhill sprints. I estimated the hill to be 150m long and I ran up and down each time so 300x8 is 2400m or 1.5 miles so 5.25 miles overall.

Easy day, signal for a hard day on the track. Hopefully we do a max effort 800m first, its getting embarrasing having to tell colleges my sophomore time that I ran 30 minutes after a 1600m. I can't wait for track, I want to skip my week-2 week break because I want to run track so bad, but I know my body does better if I give it rest before a season. Then I will be back to the 1600m, my body was made to run the 1600m and I love the race, almost nothing in life is better than a good and competitive 1600m. It just feels right when i'm racing the 1600m. hopefully USU calls soon, I really want to get in touch about running there in college, it feel like the right place but we will see.

Good fast track workout today. We ran a max effort 800m and 3x300 at 40-43 seconds. For the 800m I managed to PR by 2 seconds after a slow first lap, I wasn't sure what pace I was running the first 400m but it was too easy, I ran 64 and so I had to pick it up the 2nd lap, I ran a 62 second 2nd lap but I even kicked conservatively because I forgot if I usually kicked at the 300m or 200m of an 800m, I ran a 62 second 2nd lap for a 2:06 800m. I was feeling fine at the end though, I didn't go hard enough in the first 600m. But I had fun and it made me a lot more motivated for running in general to run a fun track race. I should've taken the first Lap in 59 or so and then tried to hang on to a 62-64 for the 2nd lap. But its ok, I had fun and I'm really confident that I can run sub 2:00 this spring, I'm also feeling confident on running that first lap pace for 4 laps this spring, I'm feeling really good about ability. This is definitely what I needed to keep it going hard the rest of the season. I think i might do my morning run at home tomorrow for extra sleep and also the warm shower makes my day a lot better than the cold ones at school. Thank you for having us do this workout Coach!

I was going to do 20-30 minutes but everyone just stopped at 15 and we did some striders. Tomorrow I want to run under 16:30, I want to finish in the top 30.

Bad race, I just didn't do very well for some unknown reason, my 2nd mile was really slow. I also left my  watch there so that sucks. I really don't want to drive all the way back, especially because I might not even find it.
