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. Running blesses lives!</h3> </li> </ul> <h3>&nbsp;&nbsp;</h3> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 21, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2017.html <p>Its time for new shoes, my feet are starting to blister good. 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 Mon, Jun 19, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-19-2017.html <p>THE LOVE IS BACK!! But who would have thought it would come back on a trail called he!! hole. The first couple miles felt like nothing it felt like running on clouds, however I started feeling a tight pain in my right lower hip but it slowly faded away till after the run. To add to this amazing run I got athlete of the week for these killer blogs ;) and hard work! I am so ready to finaly make a huge impact on this team and take it to the next level!</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Going back up he!! hole really worked on my arms and they carried me up!</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Saw how much the guys care for each other by when we went back and help a couple runners up He!!

Both xander and I slept in so we got to go running together when we woke up and it was 97 degrees.. but hey, atleast it wasnt freezing! really felt sore going into the run but that changed a half mile in and i felt great untill the end when the sun hit me but finished strong!</p> <h3>Postive:&nbsp;</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>Got to run with xander one more time</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Pushed myself when it hurt and felt way more confident then thursdays run</h3> </li> </ul> Sat, 17 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 16, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-16-2017.html <p>Man this run got to me.. i was so sore from this past week and lifting the previous day that my body was telling me to stop going. I kept having sperts of mental toughness to stay in the pack but i I lost the battle and flipped early and took the bottom minutes. The whole rest of the day sucked because of a crazy headache that came from the moring run and 7 hours of work.</p> <h3>Postive:</h3> <ul> <li> <h3>I ran</h3> </li> <li> <h3>Got to look out at the beautiful landscape</h3> </li> </ul> Fri, 16 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 15, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-15-2017.html <p>Well this run was long but didnt feel like it until the end. Went on a trail called prospector, which I recommed everyone that reads this to go run (which is probs just coach and the team ha ha). when you run on a fun trail it just goes by so fast until you get to the road and thats when it hurt like a &quot;butt cheek on a stick&quot; go watch that vine!!! but i really was hurting that last mile or so but stuck through it! Also drinking this cool fusion of gatorade mix and fiber which is really helping my gut!</p> <h2 style="font-style:italic;">Postive:&nbsp;</h2> <ol> <li> <h2 style="font-style:italic;">Learned a bunch of new peoples names!</h2> </li> <li> <h2 style="font-style:italic;">Enjoying the sport more and more every day!</h2> </li> <li> <h2 style="font-style:italic;">Didn&#39;t die from the snake that nathen spotted on the trail!

The past couple runs have been really tough to stay in the pack but I mentally have been pushing myself and it has been paying off! Starting to find the love again!&nbsp;</p> <p>Postive: Made a joke and people laughed haha. Really enjoying fealing welcome into the top guys and being myself!</p> Wed, 14 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 13, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-13-2017.html <p>nice chill run 20 road and 20 grass! feeling sore from that crazy epic tempo!&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Postive: weather was nice and thats probably the last time for the summer! Besides camp ;)</p> Tue, 13 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 12, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-12-2017.html <p>wow todays run was a beast! 3 mile tempo on the dirt mile. The warm up was pretty fast but thats what the team is planning on doing this year! The miles for the tempo went 6:20, 6:20 , 6:25 it was killer! Felt really good the first 2 miles but then it really started to hit me. Was able to stay in for another one and just really push myself to stay in the pack. Overall really good run</p> <p>Postive: Ran as one of the top guys in the workout. When pain arose, faught back with faster running! Determind to fight for more ;)&nbsp;</p> Mon, 12 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 10, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-10-2017.html <p>went on a late run around 9:10 PM with xander. It was a good run just out then back into washinton. We got talking why we run and talking about is it worth doing. Lots of ideas were shared and the reason why I run is for the fealing after a race or a good work out. That feeling of success and overcoming is so worth the many miles and hours put into training. Xander also shared another insiteful idea to find the positive things in every run so thats what im going to start putting in these blogs.</p> <p>POSITIVE: Got to spend another half hour with xander before he leaves for the mission! Second pick up felt determind to push alittle more and work on form felt good!</p> Sat, 10 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 09, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-09-2017.html <p>This run was insane!! Xander and I were up in brian head (+10,000&#39; elevation) and went running at 5:30 in the morning! To start off this run was a killer dark pink sunrise which we ran towards for a miles or so. The hills were killer but a crazy good workout. But what was insane was when I had to go to the bathroom way bad so we went searching for one and xander spotted one up a hill. I ran right up it to find a deer just chilling in the middle of this gravel lot!! I walked up carefully and went up to it and pet it! The deer was attracted to the salt of our bodys so it just chilled and licked us for 5 minutes!&nbsp;It was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget!&nbsp;</p> Fri, 09 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 07, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-07-2017.html <p>Couldn&#39;t make it to team practice today because worked needed me in so got my run in right after I got off! Luckily my brother and best friend slept in because they came with me on an awesome river run! Ran 2 miles towards sullivan park then jumped into the river because it was crazy hot then decided to run back down in the river! Felt like I had ancle weights on becuase of the water and sand. But I worked on form and trying to get my feet up with every step (if that even makes sense). Ended at the waterfall and just chilled under the flow of the virgin river! I wouldn&#39;t be surprised if thats where I end every saturday run, would recommed it to anyone in the area! Also heading out into the moutains this weekend so won&#39;t be at practice but dont worry im gonna get my runs in with my home boy xander!</p> Wed, 07 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 06, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-06-2017.html <p>Nice run with the team again! We had the oppurtunity to hear from a college coach today that really hit home with me. He talked about how he has runners on his team that don&#39;t run crazy fast but have a passion for xc and thats all he looks for.&nbsp;&nbsp;Lately I have been struggling with injuries and the love for this sport. Every injury I get makes it harder and harder to get the mindset of&nbsp;pure love for running. For the next couple of weeks or months im really going to dig deep in myself and try to find that love that I had so much of freshman year. Also im feeling really gross today with a sour throat that makes it hard to swallow. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 06 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 05, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-05-2017.html <p>nice easy 4 mile run! first run back with the team and im glad to see all the new faces! i&#39;ve had a hge problem on my runs tho. 10 minutes into my run my lower stomach hurts and i usaully have to go to the bathroom so i end up holding the whole run. If anyone has any suggestions for helping me im open to trying to fix it!</p> Mon, 05 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 25, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-25-2017.html <p>Today was alot chiller then the other days. woke up pretty early and it was way cooler then yesterday! slower tho too.. got lost on minutes so came alittle short but im making it up playing basketball later tonight!&nbsp;</p> Thu, 25 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 24, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-24-2017.html <p>Today was crazy! I was running on 4 hours of sleep because of senior sunrise and which was lit, and it was 91 degrees outside.. St George is just gonna get hotter so im glad most of the runs I do are in the morning when its much colder. Today it was just me and im focusing alot more on form as a run. I try to get my knees high and land on the front of the foot.</p> <p>32:18 @6:50</p> Wed, 24 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 23, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-23-2017.html <p>another great run to start the season! still running fast with a 7:10 average pace but slower then yesterday. legs already feeling alittle tired but im facing the pain like I never had before and im welcoming it! cant wait to get some good long runs in a couple weeks</p> Tue, 23 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 22, 2017 http://PV-Dylan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-22-2017.html <p>Wow its good to be back! fun run with some of the guys after two weeks! you know its a good run when your last mile is 6:45. Can&#39;t wait to race again. This summer is going to be insane because we have around 4-5 guys fighting for a varsity spot which is amazing and gonna push pine view to be the best they can!</p> Mon, 22 May 2017 06:00:00
