The varsity guys took it at 5:45 this morning and I was slightly late for reasons that are not my fault, but I got to the high school at 5:49 and saw what I thought was the guys just passing the roundabout in the back of the school, so I took off trying to catch them. Well I got close enough in about 2 minutes to see that it was the girls team. Disappointed that I would have to do this run on my own, I passed them and kept going. As I was passing Wells Fargo, I looked down the road and saw the guys! I hauled butt and caught them on Foremaster Ridge. That would explain the quick pace. Good morning for running.

Not sure why it was such a chill day for running, but not too many miles today. But we've got a good workout in the morning. My new testing shoes got here today, so I'll be putting some miles on those.

Tough workout this morning. 3x 800m at CV w/ 5 min recovery; 4x 400m at 3-4 sec faster than 1600m pace w/ 2 min recovery; 4x 100m at 400m pace w/ 2 min recovery. The 800's were not too bad because I focused on making them really close to the designed time. But the 400's were pretty dang tough. It's good that they were because they were supposed to be the toughest part of the workout. I hit them at 1:06, 1:10, 1:08 and 1:08; those were mostly a couple seconds fast, but it felt good. Overall, much better than the last workout.

Classic shoe run this afternoon. It was pretty dang hot today, so we stopped at the parks we ran by to get water.

I learned a few things from this race: I need to eat better and I need to get out on the first lap. Didn't get the State Qualifier I was looking for, but at least I learned some things. Glad my bro Alex finally got his SQ in the 800m. He's quite the beast. But you'll see me at Region.

Suuuper dope trail run up by the Draper temple. I had to push quite a bit on the way up, but I hanged in there. On the way down, however, I don't think I've ever run so fast in my life. Right when it started in to the major downhill, Julien was in front and I was right behind him, and Coach said, "open it up, J." Well that's like giving freakin cocaine to Hopi Julien; that kid can fly on a trail. I decided to stick with him and it was pretty sketchy, but it was just us two on the majority of the way down. Wasn't totally sure of the distance or time because my watch died about 40 minutes in. Overall, awesome run.

It was a weird morning workout. It was the exact same workout as last Wednesday: 3x 800m at CV, 4x 400m at 3-4 sec faster than 1600m pace, 4x 100m at 400m pace. It felt quite a bit tougher than Wednesday, though. It was probably because I took the 400's even harder: 1:04, 1:06, 1:08 and 1:05. Coach really emphasized this morning about embracing the pain and that it means we're doing the right things. That came at a really good time for me because multiple times during the workout, I thought about cutting the last rep in each set, but he indirectly let me know that I can push through. Overall, really beneficial day.

We had a really good team discussion today. It was mostly about XC coming up and how we're going to reach our potential. I love my team and we're going to do some great things. I am going to hold them accountable and they better do the same for me. The run today was a little blistery and the rain started to pick up when we started our striders.

PM over 33:13; 7:00ish pace- warm-up and cool with the 1600 crew

Pretty dang good first day for PV, unlike the past few meets. The girls got it started off with two more State Qualifiers; Jessica freaking beasted, and Caroline had her kind of race, going out aggressive. So proud of them. Then in the boys 1600, I have never seen Alex run so beautifully in my life. He sure had a lot of balls and a lot of courage in that race, and it showed with his 4:27 SQ. What a beast!! Great day to be a Panther!

I typed this once and I took to long to type it. So when I went to post it, it logged me out and deleted everything I typed. So in summary, I almost got it, but all hopes went out the door when I fell down with 50m left. Although, I'm alright with it for reasons I'm not going to type again.

Mitch, Dallen, Xander and I did our workout early in the morning at Jordan High school up in Sandy. It was a great morning to run and we witnessed the most beautiful sunrise ever! I had a different workout than the other three. Mine was 2x 300m at 800m pace w/ full recovery. We then all had 4x 200m at F pace w/ full recovery. It was a good workout at a little more altitude. When we got back to the hotel, all the kids were looking at me weird, and I didn't know why. Then I realized they aren't used to me wearing spandex. Oh well.

Shoutout to Robs for making a killer workout. Of course we did this on the river trail. 4x 5 min sets, each decreasing recovery by 1 min (1 min CV, 4 min rec., then 2 min CV, 3 min rec., etc.). It stressed the point of digging at the end of races when we're tired. Well I think we all had to dig deep on the last, 4 min CV set. I sure as heck had to. But it was a quality workout that I pushed through.

Dope run down River Rd. with the bros. We took this run really quick and Alex was not happy. He declared to us that he was quitting. Hope we can persuade him to change his mind.

Last run of the season. Adventure run through UVU campus. We searched all over for the secret, underground tunnels, only to find clues without success. Never give up. After our striders, we found some bird eggs on the field of the UVU track. We did not smash them.

PM Utah State Championships 3A Medley (800m leg)

Sadly, this was not a great race. Jacob got it started off really well and handed off to Michael who didn't run amazing, but he still had a good leg. Then Colin's 400m was not his best. We were second to last when I got the baton. I don't know why, but I think I checked out mentally at that point. It didn't take long for me to get passed by the Bear River kid, who was actually a really great runner (I think he took 2nd in the open 800m) Not a very good way to end the season, but what a great season it was. I'm freaking stoked for XC. Time for my two-week break.
