The course was 2.5 laps around sugar house park. My first mile was a 6:01, It felt good. 2nd was a little harder I ran a 6:12. 3rd a 6:08. And the last quarter mile I ran 91seconds. It was a hard race. But I did much better pacing myself throughout the race rather than dropping 40 seconds.

Ran on Jordan River Parkway. We did an out and back run. The heat really got to many of us. Including me, even though I thought I hydrated pretty well. It may have been that we usually have more shade in the Gully or Cottonwood Complex and it's cooler at Alta.

Other than being H2O deficient it was a hard run in the head. Especially when Kramer and Jake pass you both ways. During my run I didn't know everyone else was strugging until I got back to the car and I saw Davis specifically and others. After practice we went to a local Mcdonalds and drank a ton of water. A ton of it!

Overall it was a rough day. Days like these make you appreciate that it gets cooler throughout the Cross season. #dehydrated #rainydaysandmondays

Did an easy 20 minute recovery run. Then the team and I played ultimate frisbee. I kept my watch running so I ended up running about 4miles total.

I woke up a bit late didn't get a great breakfast and forgot my Garmin. But I was able to drop a Gu right before we started and I thought it would be ok because I hadn't run without it in a long time. Later I remembered I wouldn't have an exact mileage.

Even under the circumstances I had a good run. Me and Sperry mostly stayed together and we were able to do 5 loops and a trip back up to the top of the parking lot. Then we headed down and me and Alek both had some stomach problems so we pushed it a little harder so we could be done. 

You may ask how the Hawks compare up to other teams? I believe when the Alta High Varsity Team steps to the line on August 22nd at 5:40pm they will be prepared for a gruling match between rivals of all state qualifications. You can't forget a highly anticipated, first ever contest (of any sport) between Alta and Corner Canyon. Overall it will be a fierce, ferocious and most of all fast race. This course is a quick 2.8 or so miles. One thing for sure is this race will set an abundant amount of high school PR's.

Started with a 4.34mile warm up at SHP. Then we ran 8x400m on the most tactical part of the course. My splits were as follows: 76, 74, 75, 77, 78, 77, 79, 74.

It was a really hard workout. I was able to push through it and run a consistent pace. Nothing better than having a hard morning workout and feeling accomplished the rest of the day.

I plan on running a 10miler tomorrow. Hopefully I can wake up since I have slept in more than I should have 3 days this week.

I ran to Bell canyon reservoir. I had heard it was a good workout. It turns out it was more hiking than actual running.

First day of School which means hot, hard and fast workout. We ran 1mile warm up then 1 mile at max effort.I ran 5:32at 7th place. We then went straight into a 2 mile recovery on lower loop. When we got back we went straight into another mile at max effort I was running 2nd at the 400m at a 5:38 pace. 6 guys dropped from 5:15 range to 5:50? WTF I kept yelling for them to catch me but they wouldn't so ran the 800m and was told to stop because we weren't running hard enough.  Me and Blake finished with a 2 mile cooldown around the track and a .75 walk.

Today was a much better workout. With cloud cover and better hydration, as a team we tore up the track. We started with a 1mile warmup then did 10xFlying 40's with 800m recovery. We ended with a 800m cool down. Overall a challenging and successful day.
