Desert Chiva Running Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Thu, 24 May 2018 15:40:34 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, May 12, 2018 <p>speedy workout. feeling good</p> Sat, 12 May 2018 06:00:00 Thu, May 10, 2018 <p>4pm- 100 degrees windy- Region 9 Championships- 1600m</p> <p>good small warmup in the heat. got some water all over me to cool off a bit. This race I wanted to get 428 thats it. The race started slow, Jensen was in the lead but he wasnt pushing as hard as I thought he would. At the end of the first lap I was able to get out of the pack and get up into 2nd and stuck behind Jensen. after lap 2 I went to pass him because he wasnt really making any moves but once I got up next to him he sped up and&nbsp;didnt let me pass. the 3rd lap was good but the 4th lap I fell off jensen a bit and a couple dudes caught me and passed me I was so dead. but I kicked it up a little bit and passed those guys comfortably for 2nd place. decent race</p> <p>state is for some serious prs</p> Thu, 10 May 2018 06:00:00 Wed, May 09, 2018 <p>didnt need to run the 800 today so coach had me run an open 400 which is uncommon. they went a little quick so I didnt get as much warm up as I wanted but still pretty good. it was like 100 degrees or so today. I forgot my spandex and just wore my loose black shorts. and I didnt use blocks so I felt like a noob. also samson and cooper kenny were in my heat. but I ran super hard and ended up with a 52.67. 400s are fun.</p> Wed, 09 May 2018 06:00:00 Fri, May 04, 2018 <p>6am- easy 25 minutes</p> <p>7pm- Herriman Invite 800m</p> <p>twas a pretty beast day, good trip up. paul came by and that was fun. I warmed up alone for like 10 minutes, got back right in time. For the race I started out behind a good amount of people and more passed on the outside as I was stuck on the inside. 300m in I was behind like 8 or 10 guys and so I got&nbsp;to the outside and got moving hard I kept that move up and with 300m there was only 1 more guy in head of me. I was going to wait untill the last 100 to take the lead but he was dying and left lane 1 wide open coming into the last 200 so I took it and kicked as best I could and got the win in 157.&nbsp;</p> <p>good state q, I was dissapointed with my time though not a pr and I felt like I could have raced that one a lot more smart. I need to start faster with more confidence so I dont have to make a move until like 300 left. I need a fast 1st lap to get that pr and school record. they never called us up to the podium but I did get a dope backpack for winning. really fun meet</p> Fri, 04 May 2018 06:00:00 Wed, May 02, 2018 <p>am easy 25 past artic circle</p> <p>pm easy 30 sandbergs</p> Wed, 02 May 2018 06:00:00 Tue, May 01, 2018 <p>am- weights and easy run</p> <p>pm- workout in the wind and pouring rain. 10 warmup 5 easy tempo 3x800 @cv pace,&nbsp;4x400 @4-3 seconds faster than 1600 pace, 4x100 @ 400 pace, 300 @ f pace. all with 2 min recovery and full before the 300. this was pretty tough workout. hit the 800s about 5 seconds fast on all of them, went 65, 63,63,63 for my 400s and 13s on my 100s and 42 on the 300. the wind really sucked, it hit us on the home stretch, plus we were totally drenched in the rain so I took my shirt off because it was so heavy even though it was cold. good day, still missing j and carson though. Ive kind of given up on expecting them to get it together this season but what can you do.</p> Tue, 01 May 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 30, 2018 <p>am- 60 with striders</p> <p>pm easy run we did a 15 minute loop and a 10 minute loop it was fun</p> Mon, 30 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 28, 2018 <p>9am- Orem Tiger Trials- 1600m second heat</p> <p>got put in the second heat unfortunatly. got some good decent warmup. the first heat was good and fast which made me bh that i was the 1st seed in the second heat. anyway my race started out slow, around 67. I moved up into first during the second lap and then started moving a bit on the 3rd lap. I was&nbsp;alone at the front and kept pushing through the 4th lap and then some kid blew past me and I held off the rest of them for 2nd in my heat.</p> <p>Also had the 4x400 later on. I sat around all day in the heat and wind, the weather was just the worst. it cooled off a little for the 4x4 though and we state qualified that despite me running a 54 split. thats about it. im trying to keep a positive mindset but our distance crew is pathetic rn and its tough trying to run good without your boys with you</p> Sat, 28 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 27, 2018 <p>am- easy 25</p> <p>pm- easy 30 with handoffs after @uvu track.&nbsp;we ran through the school and up on the parking garage twas fun</p> Fri, 27 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 26, 2018 <p>am- weights and easy run</p> <p>pm easy run</p> Thu, 26 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 25, 2018 <p>am- easy run</p> <p>pm easy run</p> Wed, 25 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 24, 2018 <p>615am- weights and easy run</p> <p>3pm- hard workout and unfortunately not a good one for me. It was basically a bunch of fast repeats. today it was just more difficult for me to get on pace and on the longer distances I hit a wall pretty bad. still finished the workout as best I could. This workout was a beast though I wish I couldve been on my times at the finish I dont know why my legs werent fresh enough today</p> Tue, 24 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 23, 2018 <p>good run this morning. after the fartleks I had to stop at the bathroom in the park. running at 530 always screws up my bodies regular schedule. met back up with the guys at DI and finished.&nbsp;</p> <p>25 easy in the afternoon</p> Mon, 23 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 21, 2018 <p>11am- Dixie Invite 800m seeded race</p> <p>This race ended up like my 1600 yesterday. idk why but I was overthinking in my race. lap one was fine 59 so not bad but I didnt race the 2nd lap and it cost me. my races this weekend were kind of a waste, I probably ran harder in the workout on wednesday.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 21 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 20, 2018 <p>6am- 25 easy</p> <p>3pm- Dixie Invitational 1600m seeded</p> <p>started ok kind of slow I think like 107, kept decent position up through 2 laps, pushed up into second behind jensen to start the 3rd lap. I got caught and passed by about 7 guys right before the last lap and I didnt open up and finish good. not good race</p> <p>thinking back I really got in my own way on that last lap, I wasnt in too bad of position and could have had a good race if I would have finished hard. We are really missing julien and cars</p> Fri, 20 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 18, 2018 <p>6am- workout wednesday. warm and 5min easy tempo, 3x1000 at cv, 4x400 at mile pace, 4x200 at 800 pace, and finished with a 300 at f pace. good workout, had to hit the bathroom after the 400s. got 30,29,29,28 for the 200s and 37 for the 300. 2 minute rec all around</p> <p>3pm- dealing with a bit of soreness in the sole of my left foot, jogged a little this afternoon then iced and hung out and helped with the youngsters meet</p> Wed, 18 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 17, 2018 <p>6am- weights and easy run</p> <p>3pm- easy 55 with logan mike evan and bryan</p> Tue, 17 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 16, 2018 <p>6am- long run with 5 min easy tempo 10 min cv tempo and 5x30second hills. tough run today I felt awful and cut my minutes after the hills. went home and ate before I fell asleep. didnt have much going on at school today so I skipped most of it</p> <p>3pm- easy 25</p> Mon, 16 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 14, 2018 <p>woke up, ate some oatmeal with berries and walnuts and honey and apple slices for a good breakfast because breakfast is the most important meal of all time except for snacks.warmed up with the 3200 guys to get some minutes and shake out the legs a bit.&nbsp;the boys ran kind of slow again in the 3200. logan did good and ran a 957. jensen and matthew did good. i brought my little three legged seat so that was good for me to sit and cheer.&nbsp;</p> <p>1130am- DH INVITATIONAL 800M RUN- boys seeded heat</p> <p>&nbsp;me and Evan ran the 800 and I started out decent but you know all the 203 guys that go out too fast trapped me in after the first turn. I stuck in the middle of everyone through about 300 meters then at about 450 to go I moved outside and&nbsp;passed like 10&nbsp;guys over the next 200. with 200m left I caught the kid leading and dropped him&nbsp;and I was in 1st but it took so much energy to do that shiz and I didnt have anything for the last 100. lil Davis guy&nbsp;passed me :&#39;( twas sad I got second. my time was 1:59.4 .&nbsp;</p> <p>I was actuallly super wasted after i mean I really tightened up in the last little bit of that race and I was so tired after. I walked around and jogged a little. I recieved the 2nd coolest medal then got ready for the 4x400. the team this week was jake me evan and logan in that order. Jake did beast. he got sub 58 by 6 seconds lets go. I maintained our place. evan did good. logan out kicked some guy for 2nd place so I got 3 medals this meet how awesome. also got super sunburnt on my forehead. twas a good meet. after I went home and grinded on fortnite with the boys. im getting better. one day I hope to be able to get a solo victory royale.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 14 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 13, 2018 <p>mornign run chill and easy you already know.</p> <p>3pm- Desert Hills Invitational 1600m- boys seeded race</p> <p>twas super windy but thats ok. I warmed up with logan and it feels lonely without carson and julien we need those guys back. we only had me and logan in the seeded 1600 and I was feeling like where is my team? got some good hydration and such yesterday felt pretty good and ready.&nbsp;</p> <p>started out the race alright in decent position but didnt really move anywhere I didnt want to run by myself in the wind jensen took off and some westlake kid. I stuck in with the pack pretty good and moved into good position last lap and with 200 left moved around the pack and then out kicked them all and took 3rd. pretty good race I got 432. slow first lap and not a pr&nbsp;or&nbsp;a state q but still a good race for me in the wind.&nbsp;</p> <p>cooled down after the slow heats with the boys. logan moved pretty close to DH so we ran to his house and ate some fruit snacks mm yeah. Got a ride back with carson in the back of his truck. got pretty cold later on. thats it, thats all I have to say for my blog today goodbye everybody.</p> Fri, 13 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 12, 2018 <p>weights and 20 easy</p> <p>3pm- easy 50 in the dust and wind. it sucked so bad. but we got sick new unis for herriman qualifiers so thats beast. took an icebath</p> Thu, 12 Apr 2018 06:00:00
