3 cheers for a good running day. all my drills and warmup stuff with the trainers and then 4 miles easy on the treadmill. it felt soooo good. no pain, and a good but chill pace. 

Elizabeth Smart came today and spoke for sexual assault awareness week. It was really interesting to hear her story and everything that has gone on in her life.

4 miles on the track. Literally the only outside option we had. It has snowed so much today it’s rediculous. Achilles felt great

6 miles easy. About 7:30 avg. really snowy on the roads. Luckily dikes was cleared. Felt good but hard. No Achilles pain until the last halfish mile, where it got really icy. 

weights- minus calf raises cuz i already did some in the trainers as rehab and minus lunge to stepups, just kept it at lunges beucase the jolting of stepping off the blocks makes my achilles hurt. lots of rolling and stuffff.

6.25 pretty slow and crappy conditions. it was finally feeling warm, but everything was so wet and teh cars that drove by us, sloshed us sooo hard with their cars through puddles and it was the worst. but achilles felt good

welp, attempted a workout today and that was pretty crappy, so i ended up just mostly running distance. 8 miles total, which was nice. Just disapointed that every time i start to get heatlhy, fit, and fast, and coach starts believing in me, I somehow start sucking again. At least my achilles was feeling ok.

6 miles. mile warm, 3@ 60%, around 6:27ish pace i would say. then cool to 6. it felt decent but i am not in awesome shape rn so it was hard. definitely backed off the pace of the other girls cuz they were hauling at the beginning, but i ended up staying the same distance behind basically the whole time and gained (and passed) some by the time we were finishing. Just happy i was able to push the whole time, even though i was alone. that in itself is a win cuz im not the best at that

lol coach houles car got stuck in the mud on the side of the road while he was following us

slept a really lot last night. like one of those nights where your head hits the pillow and your out til morning. woke up at 8 cuz i was supposed to go get taped by drew, but it snowed, alison bailed, and i was tired, so we pushed taping back til 12. i fell back asleep until 11:30 and honestly probs could have slept wayyyy longer. then martha and my bros and her kids all were up here and came and visited for a while so i didnt get out til like 1:30 and holy hannah, it was an awful run. I felt so tired and my legs were heavy and i kept it so slow and still felt AWFUL. about 4 miles in i just stopped on the trail for like 10 minutes contemplating why the HECK i was torturing myself lol. anyways, finished the run and im tired.

8 with Haley at 11:00. Starting our run I felt ok, but legs felt kinda heavy. Haley said “I’m tired we can go your pace today”. Hahaha That means A slow pace, but it’s fine. Anyways, the whole time we both kept saying we were kinda tired and we were just gonna chill. Which I honestly felt like we were going pretty chill, I was just tired or somethin. Anyways, got back and checked my pace and we definitely were going like 7:20 avg. our downhill miles were 6:40. That’s the fastest I’ve ran since my whole Achilles ordeal. No wonder my legs were tired haha
