USU Invitational 

2.58 warm up with Beej. Changed into my spikes and headed over to the line. Did the normal drills, got a good amount of strides in. They were playing some good music so I was just having a good time singing along and chillin. 

Goals for the race: Drop as much time off my time from the race a couple weeks earlier (22:43) Being the last race of the year and not having anything to lose, push myself and see where the fitness I have is. Feeling like I ran too conservative last time, I wanted to push the middle miles. Watch splits of the Autumn Classic were 5:08,5:24,5:21,5:08. They have more accurate mile splits online but since I only have watch mile splits for this race (a lot smaller race) thats what I'll compare. 

 Splits today were 4:58, 5:01, 5:19, 5:20. First mile was good, was in 25th place maybe. Second mile I continued to move really well, was right where I wanted to be. After the downhill, a side-ache formed on my right side which was not fun. Instead of continuing to move up, I went to the same speed as the guys around me. Eventually it went away and with a few hundred meters to go I picked up the pace and passed a couple guys and had a good kick. I finished at 22:20, 23 seconds faster than on the 15th, something that you have to be happy about. I pushed myself, ran hard, am moving in the right direction, and getting more fit every week. The season was great while it lasted. Now we got a couple months of training for track where I'll have my first hard workouts. Its gonna be exciting!

Parked at the Ridge and ran all over the Jail Trails. I was trying to take it easier cuz it was a chill day but fetch there was a lot of elevation gain and some pretty tough spots. I ran across the face of the mountain to Suncrest/Highland Blvd, where I would run in jr high, and then back to the school with some barefoot on the grass to finish up.
