Josh and I were leaving to pinevalley so we had to start the run early and I ask people if they were ready to go because they were not doin much but they would rather chill. Tomorrows blog will have a ton more of my thoughts but im rushed on time.</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Got swoll</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Caught up with addi and ellie</h3> </li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 20 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 19, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-19-2017.html <p>Loving my&nbsp;new pair of&nbsp;pegasus 33s! So comfortable to get a ton of miles in and if Nike is reading this I would love for you to sponsor me, you wouldn&#39;t regret it!&nbsp;</p> <p>Woke up earlier this morning to get my run in because I have a leadership camp at dixie and yesterday I didn&#39;t have time to even eat breakfast! Im learning so much from this camp and i&#39;m gonna make a change to my team. Positivity is key to everything and thats one thing I know are team is missing. Xander is leaving in a couple days and he was a huge postive beam of light my team needed but with him gone I can already feel the light going away. I&#39;m really gonna miss the &nbsp;encoragement and friendliness that xander brought. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Postive:&nbsp;</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Got another run in with my brother and xander.</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Bird pooped and almost got me. That littler bugger haha</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Pushed for top minutes when it hurt.</h3> </li> </ul> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 18, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-18-2017.html <p>really tight in my legs today. But overall good run. I had a camp for 15 hours today and I gonna die but its gonne be ok! Good run</p> <h3><br /> Positive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Had a really good grass run with good form on the striders</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Lovin the pain</h3> </li> </ul> Tue, 18 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 17, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-17-2017.html <p>Pain and disapointment. That was the definition of todays run. I can&#39;t have runs like this if I want to acomplish great things. As we ran up this killer hill it hit me, and the mental negative thoughts that I have been holding in for the past couple weeks. This really hit me and for the first time I wasn&#39;t able to fight back. I gave up.&nbsp;</p> <p>I have been really soul searching the past couple of weeks just to find out who I am and started to read a book called &quot;Mans search for meaning&quot;. This man went to mutiple concetration camps and went through heck and back. I have really been looking at my life and have been wondering what I can do to fight through and be as strong as him. The hardest thing for me that I need &nbsp;to overcome is the pressure of life and the pain I face daily with running. The mental pain is always gonna be there so its how I&nbsp;deal with it for now on. This was the last crappy run of the season!</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Life is %10 of what happens to you and %90 on how you respond.</h3> </li> <li> <h3>I now know what I need to do to become great.</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Back with the team for another busy week</h3> </li> <li> <h3>SMILE</h3> </li> </ul> Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 15, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-15-2017.html <p>really crappy run but had to get as much of a run in as I could.

I felt so fresh 40 minutes in and I was so ready for some epic pick ups! Most of the pick ups were on hills and tbh I love hills. Was able to be in the top couple guys on every pick up besides the one I tried helping Evan to stay in the pack! But he was having a bad run but still pushed himself pretty good! TANNER IS SUCH A BEAST!! I can&#39;t express how happy I was to see him on the side of carson coming up the big hill at snow canyon! I was alittle surprised but thrilled non the less! My last couple of miles really hurt and I fell off from alex and carson but did my own pick up (which really pushed my limits) but caught up to them. Runs like this is what makes a great runner!</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Every person on this team is special and brings something to the table. I really mean it.</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Another run at the top of the guys.&nbsp;</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Found the wall today and ran around it and that last pickup destroyed it!</h3> </li> </ul> <p>P.S. I &nbsp;wont have service at kolob but im gonna get every run in and blog when I get home saturday&nbsp;</p> <p>P.S.S Lost 4 pounds this morning&nbsp;</p> Mon, 10 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 08, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-08-2017.html <p>Hurricane rim trail with the boys this amazing morning! Just another really awesome run with the feeling of being in shape! Really gonne miss these guys because of scout camp this upcoming week! But dont worry I am more motivated to get my runs in then I have ever been!&nbsp;</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Pushed on the hills and really working on form</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Lovin the pain</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Didnt roll an ankle&nbsp;</h3> </li> </ul> Sat, 08 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 07, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-07-2017.html <p>You could say it was an early morning for me! I started my run at 4:15am because they needed me at work at 6 so I had to go running before that because I knew i wasn&#39;t gonna be motivated to do it after. The run was way sketch because it was so dark and every noice I heard I thought someone was gonna attack me which was every 30 seconds haha. But it was a good run and I hit every hill I could!</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Ran at 4:15am because im dedicated</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Didnt get mugged while running&nbsp;</h3> </li> </ul> Fri, 07 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 06, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-06-2017.html <p>Hill work out today and most of the guys killed it! I am starting to welcome the pain alot more now and towards the last one I asked for it! Really excited to see how this tactic works in racing and I cant wait to show region 9 what im made of! Talking alot to some of the lower level 2 guys and really trying to motivate them and I think its working and we got some of them with us in the hill workout!&nbsp;</p> <h3>Positive:&nbsp;</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Pushed the guys on most of the hills for a faster hill&nbsp;</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Loved the pain</h3> </li> </ul> Thu, 06 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 05, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-05-2017.html <p>Good chiil run with the boys! felt really slow and alittle sore from monday but hey what are you gonna do! Went to prospector today which is one of my favorite runes! But I was way out of it because of thoughts. Been thinking alot about my life and kinda stressing about it. But I got to just get over myself and run!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Sweating more so that means im more hydrated haha</h3> </li> <li> <h3>I can feel my legs getting stronger day by day</h3> </li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 05 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 04, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-04-2017.html <p>Man I love running with xander and josh! We went to mitchels house and said goodbye to him which was really sad because ill probs not see him ever again. Everyone is leaving I realized.. But thats life I guess! I keep tearing up whenever I think about xander leaving, I really love that guy! I noticed I need new shoes so probably gonna get the same shoe becuase they feel way nice</p> <h3>Postive:&nbsp;</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Got to run with my best friends another day</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Starting to take care of my body more&nbsp;</h3> </li> </ul> Tue, 04 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 03, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-03-2017.html <p>I love this team so much!!! Today was my first time back with the guys and it was the long run for the week! I was really bummed tho as we got towards 28 min a bunch of good guys flipped and I dont understand why. We got back at exactly 75 min (which was level 2 min) so they would have been good but they decided to flip early. Sorry for complaing but that really bothered me. Ran top level 3 minutes today and it felt really good! Tired towards the end but thats what a long run will do to you.&nbsp;</p> <h3>Positive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Im back running with the team!</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Not running around a track!&nbsp;</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Showed pain whatsup and I pushed through pick-ups!</h3> </li> </ul> Mon, 03 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 01, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-01-2017.html <p>First run back in st george and it was 105 degrees! I am so happy not to run around a track for miles but its werid because it goes by alot faster on the track. Really missin all my friends and gha and my running buddy kendal! This experiece is one that i will never forget! now im ready to become a better person and runner and help the team do amazing things!&nbsp;</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Found alot of water to cool off on the run</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Was able to run pretty good with only 6 hours of sleep and now im gonna pass out&nbsp;</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Love the pain</h3> </li> </ul> Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 30, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-30-2017.html <p>today i did something diffrent! I&nbsp;really wanted to break 5 minutes so i did a mile time trial just for the heck of it!!! I wasnt able to break it but i wasnt that far off. this week has been really tough for running because i have only had 5-6 hours of sleep a day because of starting so early and activitys going so late. But I wouldn&#39;t have traded this experice for the world! Ready to get back into things!&nbsp;</p> Fri, 30 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 28, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-28-2017.html <p>today was pretty dope! Ran around the track after a long day starting at 4! Everyday is full of adventures and then I get to end it with running witch I&#39;m starting to love!&nbsp;</p> Wed, 28 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 27, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-27-2017.html <p>well nothing exciting... just running around a track! Love it tho here running at night is way chill&nbsp;</p> Tue, 27 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 24, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-24-2017.html <p>first run at camp and it was pretty cool for the first 10 min but running around the track gets boring after 6 miles.. but I&#39;m for sure gonna get as much running as I can because they only let me at nights with kelton one of the councilors! He&#39;s ran for pine view his freshman and sophomore but said he really didn&#39;t put much hard work in so he quit after that. But now he is a way cool guy! This Camp is so amazing and I have loved every minuet of it!!! I have learned so much and made so many friendships!!&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 24 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 23, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-23-2017.html <p>Had to get as much as a run as I&nbsp;could get before I leave for Cedar. Got as many hills as I could find on my run! It was way weird tho not having anyone to run with so for the first half of &nbsp;my run my form was so bad. Really missing the team and hoping i&#39;ll survive this camp.</p> <h3>Postive:&nbsp;</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Got a run and smiled to everyone I passed</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Really pushing myself when I hit a hill and using arms probably way to much haha&nbsp;</h3> </li> </ul> Fri, 23 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 22, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-22-2017.html <p>Who doesn&#39;t love a good set of hill repeats! This has to be one of the best work outs of the summer! As we came to the last rep of our&nbsp;5x1min and 85 sec&nbsp;hill set I just smiled and asked for pain! I legit said in my head &quot;pain, hit me already im ready for you&quot; then it hit me!! I pushed through it like I have never done before and ended up in front of the main pack of guys and it felt amazing! I have a new mindset and am ready for the pain that awaits me!</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Showed pain whats up and concured</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Saw&nbsp;Mitch Price for the last time and without XC i would have never been such a great friend with this amazing man.

The run was good but really stressing lately. Working after running is really taking a toll on my body. I feel like Im not recovering enough going into my next run the next day. Also have really been worrying about this leadership camp that im going to on friday for 9 days and how I will get those runs in because it is tight schedule starting at 6am most mornings. I have a couple more camps I will also be attending and im really worried that I will loose my progression on being top on the team. I really have been working my butt off this summer because I want to make a diffrence.</p> <h3>Positive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Learning to love the pain</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Ladybug came out of my sock when I came home to take a shower, Good memorys haha</h3> </li> </ul> Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 20, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2017.html <p>Before the start of my run my right calf was way tight but I strectched it out really good before the run! After a good 20 min run on the road we moved to the grass and this time my feat didn&#39;t freeze but it was crazy hot instead.. Coach was right when he said that we would miss the sprinklers next week. I guess he is always right haha!&nbsp;</p> <h3>Positive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Ran level 3 minutes because I felt way good</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Lovin Runnin</h3> </li> </ul> Tue, 20 Jun 2017 06:00:00
