Started with a 2mile warmup on the track. Then had a 2mile time-trial with the team. My time was about 12:27. I suffered from dehydration and collapsed at the finish and wasn't able to stop my watch so i forgot my time. Talking to the other guys that's what I figure my time was. We then went for a 2mile cool down around the lower loop. I started drinking a lot more water the rest of the day.

I had to walk home from work about 1.5miles in the heat, my muscles were tight for some reason. Maybe more post run cool down stretches?.... so I went for a 2mile run around lower loop sweat probably all the extra water I drank.

Lesson learned for today: 1Drink more water. 2Don't run when its 102degrees outside. 3Get a good nights sleep. 4Wake up earlier to get the energy from breakfast ready to use about time for practice, 20minutes isn't enough.

It was my second time up at Alta this season. 1st time I was only able to do 2campground loops, but this time I was able to do double. The uphill was difficult, but the downhill rewarding. In total I ran about 1 1/2hours. Afterwards me and the team went for tru moo. Ran into Jacob Crosby on the way home. Recruitment failed, sorry coach.

My goal sub 20. 

Very Humid because of a surprising rain.

I started out a bit too fast some early hills hurt more than they should have. I kept telling my self for the first 2miles I can't run faster I can't. Then something inside me said "What the heck your running with kids wearing basketball shorts you can beat them." for the next half mile I aimed at passing Jacob and right before I passed him I thought "Maybe I can ride him the whole way and pass him at the end." But instead I decided to go for Davis, Brayden, and Conner. I almost had them until Brayden and Conner set an early kick and left Davis and me behind. 

 I ran 19:43.1 and I was only Chicked 2 times.

Alta Ski resort run with the team. Coach Murphy and Krong ran with us. I stayed at the front for about half way up then lost them. My goal was 6 campground loops, and starting my 6th Jake, Kramer, and Murphy caught up to lap me. So I stayed with on the last loop and ran with them on the way down. They pushed me to a hard pace, but I was able to stay with them to the parking lot. It was a good, hard day.

BTW Coach if your reading this I rescheduled my orthodontic appt. :)

Should I enter a time trial as a race report? Ran 47:49 for 6.32 miles. Tried to take Blake down, wasn't quite able to, but I took 3rd (varsity), behind Blake and Kramer ran about 41:00. What kept me going today was to run it with the head the legs and the heart.

Ran up at Alta Ski resort with the team and Coaches. Ran into Bingham doing their time trial. We stopped and talked for a few minutes. Then continued on our usual run. I was only able to do 2 laps around the campground because I had to be home by 10:30. So I ran down with David West and Zach Gundry.

We did 30 second sprints 2xper lap at Sugar House Park. I really worked on my form while running today. Trying to land on my mid foot not on my heels. I realized I need to lift my knees higher when I run, it will bring my foot around in the right position so that I'm not on my toes. My feet also make less noise hitting the pavement, which I lessens the pounding on my knees. A mentally successful day. :)

My goal was sub 19. My splits were 5:48,6:07,6:50. Last tenth of a mile at a 6:15. Not fast enough. I took the first mile too fast. I should have taken the first easy then the second and 3rd harder.

I did a 1.78 mile warmup. Then we did another time trial. This time I didn't do as well as last Monday. I didn't drink enough water, and I was feeling sick to my stomach all day afterwards. Which happens if I run dehydrated. My time today was: I hit 27 or so at the hill, and finished at 50:19 at 6th. Last week I hit 29:11 at the hill then finished with 47:49 and took 3rd. I took it very hard trying to stay as a pack with Blake and Kramer.

Missed the txt about 6am practice with the team. I thought they were going to Alta Ski resort so I thought I thought I would compensate with a Long run. So I ran up 114thS left on 17thE on dimple dimple dell road. Turned right and headed to Wasatch Blvd. Then ran up to the mouth of little cottonwood. Turned around came home on Wasatch. Kramer told me thats a lot for a midweek run. Lesson learned... The hard way.

Ran the state course with the team. Then we headed to the Highland Track and ran 5x800m with 5min recoveries. My splits were something like 2:48, 2:46, 2:47, 2:54, 2:38. On the 3rd one Murphy asked me if I was dogin it. I had to admit I was trying to conserve for the last one. It was a great confidence building VO2 max workout.

Did a 1.34 mile warmup. Then we did a time trial of the Gully Long Run. I ran 6th at 48:19. We ran as a pack until the bridge, then we separated I was sore from Saturday and when I got to the road I mentally started to drop my pace Jake K dropped back a bit to help me out. In other words dropped to push my pace. I was able to run half the hill then walked the rest and made the top at 28:10. I started to pick up my pace since my shins stopped hurting. About the park Davis caught me and was running really hard. I was able to stay within 150m of him to the finish. So I had a strong start and finish. I just need to have more mental toughness the second third of the race.

We had 13 guys come out today! It's funny how most summers our numbers go down throughout the season, but ours are going up. As of tomorrow we are 3weeks from our first meet, the Highland Invitational.

I did about a mile warmup in the Gold Miners Daughter lodge parking lot. So we headed up to the campground. My goals for the day were to stay with Kramer and Jake to the top. I was so close, I stayed within 150m of them. I was able to make it to the top for the first time without stopping. Me and Alek pushed each other more than ever today. When one of us would drop a bit the other would make them keep going. It was great peer pressure. So me and Alek made it to the campground and we did 6 tough laps. He wanted to only do 4, but I got him to go for 6. When we got down to the parking lot we hit 9.5 so I did an extra .25 and 4 striders.

Jacob Allred on the way down threw up out the window. He was very sick. Hope you feel better Jacob.
