Super awesome race today! I can feel the adrenaline from a PR and I'm excited to race the mile again :) I played way conservative the first lap (somewhere around 73), split a 2:19 for the first 800m, and finished at 4:37! It was a lot of fun👍🏼 Biked 30 minutes with Gan cuz she wanted a buddy😂 Nice job everyone who competed today, there were a lot of really incredible performances.

Still don't know about arcadia... Jamie is having me do the training for it though because either way I'm racing this weekend! Nice recovery low mileage run with Thom and Mike.

Oh my goodness. I keep blogging and for some reason it won't post! I am going to arcadia :) we did a workout today. 3 sets of 400 and 200. I hit 64, 31, 63, 31, 65, 32. We slowed down at the end because the other guys wanted it to be honest, which is fair! I felt really good though👍🏼

Pre meet today. My legs felt kind of heavy so I'm definitely planning on ice bathing and elevating today! Hit a 65 and 66 for my 400's. Can't wait for the big day tomorrow :)

Racing at Arcadia was such a cool experience! I had a lot of fun. I split (unofficially) a 4:29 for my mile. I was well pleased with this :) I was hoping for sub 4:30 individually and sub 18:00 for our team. Shoutout to AF for wearing orang as they broke the national record because we got a lot of congratulations on our cool down lol😂

Today's workout didn't sound too bad... but it hurt a lot! 6x1min uphill at mile effort. I started out maybe harder than I should've and was tempted to give up and give in at the end! But I didn't. I hit around the same place on the hill every rep and felt really good about it :) Mark texted me today and asked about my schedule but I'm still not sure if I've got the job at Utah Run!

Today my chest felt better... until the run. Pre meet kind of killed it and it is difficult to get enough air. So tomorrow will be fun🙂 I'm actually really excited tbh!

Well my chest felt better today... aside from that, my achilles flared up again, my stomach hurt in a nervous way, and the wind picked up more than I'd like. The first lap I played pretty safe - hitting a 61 - next 200m I picked it up, pitting myself in 2nd - hitting a 28 or 29 and on pace to hit or go under 2:00 - last 200m my legs were like "Hello Dallin, wake up, you do realize we can't move, right?" just about stumbled over myself because I couldn't pick my feet up - 34/35😬 I will by surprised if I didn't get DQ'd because I stepped on the cement a couple times lol. I am praying for low mileage soon because I've burnt out this week! My achilles can't take much more.

May we all take a moment of silence for my dear Hokas. Though they grew old and frail and failed to support my achilles, they worked wonders. They helped me up from a hip flexor injury. They took me through many hard and challenging workouts.They even stayed by me in a few races. Thank you Hoka One One Tracer, but now is your time to move onto a better place😢 50 min of biking. Came up with and repeated power phrases throughout my run. "Fight hard. Stay strong. Dig deep." like a broken record!

Today's workout was a joke... 12x400m first 4 at current mile, next 4 faster, next 4 fastest.

My splits were as follows: 66, 66, 67, 66, 65, 65, 68, 74, 68, 79, 65, 68.

After the 3rd to last one I was too embarrassed to keep going. It's one thing to die, it's another thing to run a 79. I waited for everyone to finish and then did my last 2. I felt really dizzy and sick, mostly dehydrated. I found it hard to stand so I finished on the bike. I almost fell off a few times because I was so out of it.

Today felt much better than the past few. Nothing even hurt. I ran in the morning because of Arena Scheduling! Note to self: tell Mom and Dad next time you run in the morning... lol

Nothing super exciting today... just stoked thinking about summer XC and no more school! I told the guys about my running dreams today and they shot them down pretty fast. One day I'll be good and then they'll feel bad about being haters!

Legs were a little heavy today. Premeet was a 67, 66 though! That's what I need. I've been slightly nervous for tomorrow but there's not any real reason to be. Shoutout to Collin and Zack because not only are they inspiration to me, but they've also been really good friends to me. Thanks guys!

Well today's race was pretty strange. This week's been stressful and I didn't put much mental prep or motivation coming into the race. I honestly didn't feel like I tried too much, I didn't look to push into the next level of pain, just kind of settled. Not happy, not sad, just whatever.

Nice easy run today. Tempting to go hard today but I held back for the sake of Monday's speed. I need to hydrate lots this weekend!

Biked roughly 10-12 easy miles

We had a workout today. I prepped lots for it over the weekend! It was 12 repeats at 800m pace (same as the 9 repeats, except 12). There was wind again so we adjusted 2 seconds. Goal was 2 flat pace. 47-49 300's, 32-34 200's, and 15-17 100's. My splits were 46, 48, 48, 49, high 49 so i decided to go to 200's, 32, 33, 31, 32, 31, 31, 30. It felt so good for once! Cooled down with Thom and went over a bit so he could have a buddy. Good good day today :)

Well... it was a PR😂 I raced in my gun laps and killed my calves! 2 miles in those was a huge mistake. I stuck with our 3 guys going for state for 6 laps but lost it the last 2. It was a rough and widespread race, as I lapped people on lap 5-6. It felt like my 800m at Utah County where I was on perfect pace up until the last 1/4! It's ok though, baby steps.

Nice and early run this morning bc for some reason when I go to bed midnight on a Friday my body naturally wakes up just after 6😝 It's fine though. My fingers froze but I was sweating so that's always a fun feeling. Hit a few sub 7's near the end but averaged a 7:15.
