I went up jail trail precisely a mile so I could turn around and run a crazy fast time! On the way down I realized my legs were not prepared&#128556; Not to mention there was a lil bit of uphill in the first quarter that I didn&#39;t account for. So, I decided today was not the day. I slowed down and just proceeded at a comfortable pace. When I got to the main hill I picked it up a little more and hit a 4:38 mile. Not what I was hoping for today, or what I should&#39;ve been able to do, but it&#39;s a start!</p> Sat, 27 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 26, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-26-2017.html <p>Ran by myself and almost negative split every mile. Missed it just barely because I was uphill against wind on the 4th mile&#128533; Felt really good tho :) and I&#39;m honestly so excited that I only have one more run til my break!</p> Fri, 26 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 25, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-25-2017.html <p>Good run with Riley and on the way out I said &quot;Hey that looks like Gill!&quot; It was. So, we joined him for his run! Good times.</p> Thu, 25 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 24, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-24-2017.html <p>Went on a pretty long hike so once I got back I just did 2 easy miles about 7:03 pace.</p> Wed, 24 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 23, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-23-2017.html <p>Well the rootbeer mile was interesting! I wasn&#39;t anticipating finishing it... I haven&#39;t had soda in a loooong time so it hurt to drink. But I did it! Later I took my future brother in law up jail trail, I&#39;m so mean! He doesn&#39;t run...&#128514;</p> Tue, 23 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 22, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-22-2017.html <p>Nice and easy run today. I hoped for more of a recovery pace... but, at least I didn&#39;t go far!</p> Mon, 22 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, May 20, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-20-2017.html <p>I decided to conquer my biggest fear today: Jail Trail alone. I decided to go up to the same spot as Wednesday (a little less direct way there) and then I went a step further to the next ridge. I could see past Utah Lake to the south and clear to Sandy to the north. I also saw dozens of undiscovered trails! I saw one that I thought might loop back home so I took it. There were trees ungulfing me and probably several snakes in my path&#128556;&#128557; I finally caught back onto a familiar trail and took it to Suncrest. On Suncrest I saw some teenage girl who&#39;d managed to get her car stuck on the middle barrier, 2 wheels on each side&#128514; Made it back to my house just short of 10 so I finished out in little circles&nbsp;to the mile mark.</p> Sat, 20 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 19, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-19-2017.html <p>Had a pretty rough day today so my first mile was a 6:33... with more rage, and the hopes to negative split, second mile was a 6:04. Holding on for one more negative split,&nbsp;the third mile was a 5:16&#128514; took the rest recovery.... well, kind of. Don&#39;t let me run alone!!!</p> Fri, 19 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 18, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-18-2017.html <p>Zantes were dirty from yesterday so ran in the pegs haha. Good good run with Collin!</p> Thu, 18 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 17, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-17-2017.html <p>The run was literally insane. It was like a run/hike up to the top of jail trail. On the last stretch up the snow picked up and I started to black out but it was so worth it! We did a cheer up top with the 8 of us who made it. Then, we made our way down! The 2nd to last mile was a 4:53&#128076;&#127996; Super great day :)</p> Wed, 17 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 16, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-16-2017.html <p>Well today was a change of events... I planned to pace the 800m at JV Region for a sub 2:10. I was already nervous about this because I hadn&#39;t hydrated all day, I haven&#39;t been recovering lately, and my stomach felt really sick. But, Riley decided he&#39;d rather race the mile last minute. I&#39;d already fit in 4.5 miles and I was not ready to race a mile&#128514; But, I went for it and just had a good time. No pr by any means and ALMOST got passed at the end... but I was pretty satisfied with my performance :)</p> Tue, 16 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 15, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-15-2017.html <p>My right zoom pocket popped&#128557; It is really irritating to run in my pegs with one popped and one not. I may have to retire them... But I don&#39;t have other shoes! Yikes. Helped pace Guppy in her speed today, nothin big.</p> Mon, 15 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, May 13, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-13-2017.html <p>Getting back into summer habits of no race no pace. Started with a nice 7:25 warmup and slowly dropped. Last mile was a 6:02. I want to at least start gaining some sort of upper body so I did push ups today. I need someone to help hold me to push ups or pull ups everyday!</p> Sat, 13 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 12, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-12-2017.html <p>Nice easy run today. I love getting abs and hips done before running! Also, apparently there&#39;s a JV Region now (on Tuesday) and I think I&#39;m going to pace a few guys for a sub 2:10 800m and maybe run a 400m.</p> Fri, 12 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 11, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-11-2017.html <p>Oh today was so much better! No nerves, no wind, no fears. I had an awful start but some saint tripped so we got a go again and the 2nd time went much better! I took it out contained, like I like, and hit a 61. Next lap I tried to move and keep position the last 200m. I thought the idea of 2nd place in the 2nd heat sounded cool so I stayed put and hit a 62! It&#39;s not that fast but I was so happy with it :)</p> Thu, 11 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 10, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-10-2017.html <p>Let&#39;s just forget that happened... I thought I was ready for today but I doubted myself in the race. It&#39;s kind of a bummer that a 4:34 qualified for state. I don&#39;t really know if I wanna do the 800m tomorrow or not&#128556;</p> Wed, 10 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 09, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-09-2017.html <p>Because of AP testing I was not able to hydrate much for the run and it was pretty hot! Also, I did a long warmup before premeet on accident and rushed back to the school. Hit a 65 for both 400&#39;s. I am seeded 8th for the mile and would need top 4 for state. I&#39;m not expecting it, just going for sub 4:30. But, we&#39;ll see what happens!</p> Tue, 09 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 08, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-08-2017.html <p>Real easy low mileage run today. Decided I&#39;m going to race the mile and 800m at region!</p> Mon, 08 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, May 06, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-06-2017.html <p>Holy smokes. My cold got even worse. Breathing was very hard. But, my Dad gave me a blessing in the morning and it helped a lot :) I remembered my surge points in the race and could&#39;ve used a little work on the last lap but I&#39;m now so close to my season goal of sub 4:30. I am going to race the mile and 800m at region and hope for a PR in both!</p> <p>Got the rest of my mileage by biking 5 miles with my Dad. It hurt, especially my lungs&#128556;</p> Sat, 06 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 05, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-05-2017.html <p>Premeet today. Hit a 67 and 65. I would be really really happy with these times&#128514; I came down with a cold last night and it&#39;s only gotten worse. It felt hard to breathe.</p> Fri, 05 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 04, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-04-2017.html <p>My ankle felt lots better today. I noticed it but it didn&#39;t really hurt! Shoutout to Zack for signing with BYU and shoutout to all you fast people because that&#39;s hard to do!</p> Thu, 04 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 03, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-03-2017.html <p>Well... I intended on full mileage. Then almost 3 miles out I was tripped and bift it, landing on or rolling (idk which one) my ankle. I got up to run again but it quickly hurt. I started to walk and that hurt too. Waited 30+ minutes til my pals made it back to the school then drove by to pick me up ;) Did abs and hips when I got back.</p> Wed, 03 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 02, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-02-2017.html <p>Speed workout today, nothing too hard. 4 sets of 400m at mile pace, straight into a 100m jog, then right into a 200m kick. Just kept track of the 400&#39;s and hit a 65.85, 64.84, 65.24, 65.9. It felt pretty effortless, which is kinda how it was supposed to be. Lots of rest. I&#39;d take that for my mile any day though.</p> Tue, 02 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 01, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-01-2017.html <p>Just 8 easy miles today&#128077;&#127996; Shoutout to Bryn bc 1) Prom was a blast 2) Morp is gonna be sick!</p> Mon, 01 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 29, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-29-2017.html <p>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&#128541; It&#39;s fine though. My fingers froze but I was sweating so that&#39;s always a fun feeling. Hit a few sub 7&#39;s near the end but averaged a 7:15.</p> Sat, 29 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 28, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-28-2017.html <p>Well... it was a PR&#128514; 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&#39;s ok though, baby steps.</p> Fri, 28 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 27, 2017 http://dalpal.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-27-2017.html <p>Pre meet today... Stuck with Thom bc I didn&#39;t feel like timing. 68, 68. I&#39;m racing the 2 mile. *face palm*</p> Thu, 27 Apr 2017 06:00:00
