On our way to flagstaff for a meet. Way pumped. No shakeout this morning cuz we will do one when we get there. A little sad cuz I was asleep when we passed lake


Mile shakeout once we got here. I forgot how beautiful flagstaff is 


Mile warm and drills and stuff. Then the mile. I was the last person in the fast heat so that’s always fun. We started sooo fast and I was ok through 3 laps and the last 2 I really died hard. My legs were so tired and felt kinda like noodles. I’ve never felt so tired after a mile. Ran a 5:36 which converts to a 5:26 which is decent. Only one person in the slower heat beat me so that’s good. Definitely not as good as last week but I’ll get there. Mile cool down

Mile warm and then the 3000. We were supposed to do it as a good workout. I was really strong through 6 laps, and ok the 7 and 8 one. My last 2 were a little strugglish but they were ok  I’ve got to work on opening my stride. Ended up 11:20 which converts to about 10:55 which would be pretty similar to my pr in the 3200 so I’m pretty happy with it. Excited to keep racing and see what I can do. Can’t complain about how things went considering the higher mileage and decently hard workouts. Cool to 8.5
