Morning: 2 easy shakeout in St George, on the old 2 mile warmup route.

Afternoon: this is a special week, were traveling but were also doing 4 days of effort, so hard week! Today was day 1. Warmup, drills, strides, then the workout was 12x500m w 90sec rest, goal range 1:25 to 1:32. I averaged 1:28.6, which is 14:45 5k pace. Felt strong today, worked on surging and responding to surges, and being strong in the wind. Cooled down. Good stuff today

Was gonna do a shakeout this morning, but i knew that we would do a longer session in the PM. Today was good, day 2. Warmup, drills, then the workout was 4 miles @60%, then 5x(40, 30, 20)sec hills. Good stuff, the first 2 miles of the tempo were on the track, so naturally they were quicker, hit 5:37, 5:34, then turned out on to the road to home depot and got gapped a little bit by the pack, but i reeled in george so it wasnt bad. 5:54 avg for the tempo, then made sure to push the hills. Cooled down back to the track. Good stuff today

Shakeout for 1.5 ish miles this morning

Race day! Warmed up with the guys and felt good. Watched races and Eric and Bryan got dubs in their heats so I had to continue the streak. Gun went off and I got out well, right into 1st place, and NO ONE went with me. I lead the race wire to wire and finished first in 4:17.39, a season record I guess. I'm stoked because I won and got a shirt, but I know I could've gone faster if I was in a faster heat. I won by 4 seconds for God's sake. It's all good though, my competitive juices are back and I think I'm getting my mojo back. Mileage after and donuts. Good stuff today

Morning: 2 easy shakeout

Afternoon: quicker workout. Not traveling this weekend, which i think is a good thing, im getting a little burned out, so its good that im not traveling for two weeks. Warmup, drills, then the workout was 2x500m, 3x300m with 70sec rest, then 1min rest. Hit 1:24, 1:22, :50, :48, :47. Good negative splits, and im glad i did this one instead of the 5k workout because i think my endurance is there, i just desperately need speed. Cooldown. Good stuff today

Day 1 of effort, great workout today. 80% and hills in the staggering wind. The tempo time was pretty slow, but my place on the team was stellar (6th), and the effort was definitely there. The wind just made everyone slow today. Then the hills were 4x (15, 20, 15sec). But then coach said that he would blow the whistle once the back guys got to a certain marker on the hill, so they ended up being more like 18, 23 seconds. On the second one I fell hard, but I blasted up and finished second behind kasey lol, because during a race you gotta recover if you fall. Good stuff from everyone today

Day 3 of effort today, good workout again. Good ol 60% in the wind, with strides 10 strides after. We did a revised route. We started on farm run, but then instead of turning left into the deathtrap, we turned right to end of the world. Splits were 5:56, 5:58, 5:52, 5:45, 5:50, 5:39, 5:33, 5:32. Good negative splitting, haven't done that in a while. Strides were good after; good to train the body to go faster after a hard effort.

Last day of effort this week, some good hard speed. Warmup, drills, strides, and the workout was 2x (400, 300, 200) w 2min rest, 4min rest between sets, then 6x150 buildup, where we start the first 50m at about 1500m pace, then all out the next 50m, then cruise in the last 50m. Good effort today, first set went 64, 47, 29, second set went 63, 47, 28. Didn't time the 150s. Gooood stuff today

Pre meet at UC Irvine. Warmed up 3 through campus, it was quite nice. Went to the bathroom in one of those controversial gender inclusive bathrooms, that was interesting. 2x400m at 5k, 3x50m starts, cooled down another 3. Good stuff. I race tomorrow night, I think I can do well. Also Charles jock and Allyson Felix are at this meet so they'll be cool to see those Olympians run.

Shakeout

Steve Scott Invite, my last 5k of freshman year. Twas a decent one. Warmed up, felt good. The race was under the lights so that was fun. The gun went off and I got out right into 1st place, then settled to let 2 guys go around me and do the work. Worked with them for a bit, then let them get ahead a bit too, til the first mile. Mile in 4:53. Then I reeled the two guys back in, I really wanted to go for dubs. Worked with them for the next mile, 2 miles in 9:52 ish. Then I really started feeling it, I stopped running 73s and started hitting 75s and 76s. Last 3 laps were really hard, and a northern Colorado dude went around me, I stuck with him for about 200m, then I moved with about 450m to go. Kicked really hard the last 150m, felt good about that. He outleaned me by a little bit, he was 15:35.42 and I was 15:35.43. The aggravating part was when we were kicking, he stuck his arm out at the finish line as if it would propel him forward or like the clock would go off his arm across the finish line, idiot.

What a year. Lots of ups and downs, mainly downs, but I think I'm gonna see a big jump this summer that'll result in me traveling for cross.
