my legs were so tired today, and my stomach is wrecked. Idk why but it has been bugging me quite a bit lately. My mom wants me to try not eating gluten for a little bit and see if it helps anything becuase it sounds similar to what has happened to my aunt ida in the past. anyways 5x k's. supposed to be 7 but i felt awful. at 5 i talked to paul and he said to just try mileage. hopefully tomorrow is better

7.5 miles. 2 mile warm and then an 80% and hills. holy cow, my legs are cashed. I feel like i havent recovered at all. 19:04 for 3 miles. Not hideous like tuesday, but still felt tired. Stomach was feeling a bit better tho. 

sidenote: I should probs start taking iron consistently. i suck at it cuz i hate the taste of the liquid and idk if the pill is effective. and it makes me nervous beucase i feel like some people take soooo much iron that their bodies now dont how to produce or absorb iron on their own. I feel like if i start taking it all the time, i might enduce problems that i would not have had if i just dont, so idk what to do.

New shoes!

8 miles total. 2 warm and then 12x40 with 300 meter jog between. Seriously made up for my terrible workout Tuesday and mediocre one yesterday. I’m definitely getting fitter and my last 2 workouts (although not my slowest) have not shown my improvements. I hung with the group the whole time and lead every other one until the last set of 4. Hit 82,84,81,81,77,79,77,75,75,77,77,78. They were in sets of 4, the first ones being between 80-84, 75-79 and 71-78. I was in range the whole time and only fell off the group the last 3!!!!!

2 miles WU. 3x1000 with 3 minute recovery. 3:28,29,32. Honestly I felt so good and hit just what coach wanted me to. My mentality lately has been on point and I’m glad. Then 5x400. On one K and one 400 I was right with Morgan Haley and Julieta. The rest I was in front of them, and most of the 400’s I was just off of Madison. I’m getting fit and I know it and I’m so freaking excited about it. I need patience, but I just want to be fast soooo bad. So excited for Azusa this weekend!! I didn't get in the 1500 cuz i have not ran that very fast lololol. BUT i got in th 5k and im SUPER pumped for it!

8 miles on end of the world. it was rainy and a bit windy so coach told us to run out and he would pick us up. to be honest, i dont like that run much. Its all flat/downhill, which is nice, but its literally a straight road for 8 miles and there are no turns and nothing cool to look at. my legs just get tired and my mind gets bored. 

heat sheets FINALLY came out for Azusa and Im in heat 8 racing at 10:40 pm. So basically 11:40 lol. Im seriously so pumped. I feel like i am fit and i just need to trust that i am and go for it. Cuz if i just race scared im never going to push myself and never going to realize what i am capable of.

Oh my gosh! Such a fun race! I felt good getting going and was consistent. Our race was kinda inconsistent but I did my best to keep my pace and was up front leading which was nice. Came through 3k in 10:36 and 3200 in 11:21. Started to tighten up around 6 laps to go, but took the lead of our pack with an NAU girl, we reeled in this girl who took off and I kept the pace steady after that. I felt good, but it was hard good, not quite so smooth as the last time. Finished in 17:48 which is a 12 second PR! I finished Stronger too with my last mile being 7 seconds faster than last time! Excited to keep it rollin. Coach Houle seems to be happy with me as well and I’m super excited about that! Finished 4th? Maybe 5th. Idk. Also I like racing late I decided. It’s just hard to wait til 11:00 pm (12:00 am Utah time) to race cuz usually I’m long asleep by then

50 and strides. I’m really tired today. Like kinda running wise, but mostly sleep wise. Last week was horrible for sleep cuz the meet was so late every night that I didn’t go to bed til about 2:00. And my roommates kept waking up freaking early. So annoyed, but anyways, now my sleep has been a bit off. I was attempting to do hw and told myself I could lay down for a few minutes and I fell asleep on the couch. Then after my run, I showered and laid down for a sec and was out instantly. Hopefully I sleep tonight

1.5 mile warm, then 7x1000. I was exausted today. My legs were heavy and i was just tired. I really wanted to drop but after 4 paul told me to slow down a bit at the beginning and just finish the workout. Ive had 6-7 really good workouts as well as multiple great races in a row and he said it was about time that a crappy one came along. Anyways. I finished the workout and although it may not have been great, was mentally a win today. Finishing tough, and awful workouts like that are sometimes the most rewarding cuz it teaches me to be tough. 

anyways sometimes i hate having practice before the guys, beucase depending on how our workout goes, coach changes it for the guys. That happened today and none of the 5k/10k guys had to do the k's, they got to do the fast workout and i am JEALOUS.

warmups and race and cooldowns and stuff.

got out good, one girl took off and no one else was even coming. i thought i had gone out way too hard, but when we crossed the line, we had come through in an 80, which is slower than i had wanted to. the first lap i tried to be careful so i didnt get boxed in, but i realized no one was gonna come up with me, so i just went to the inside of the lane. Then of course 3 u of u girls came right around me so i couldnt get out. i stayed with them for the rest of the race, but i felt so good and wanted to get going a little during the 3rd lap. finally basically stopped, got around them and passed them all with 200 to go. It was a 3 second PR and converts to about a 5:11, but i felt like there was so much more. I guess now i know for next time
