First day running with the team. It was really great to run with people again! The girls are super nice and very fast. The faster pace is definitely better with people. I don't know tons of people yet, but I'm learning. Lots of meetings and some form training. I have lots to work on

Progression run in la manana. It was less scary than I thought. I also made it farther than I thought. So we started with 3 laps at 9:00 pace, 1.25ish at 8:00 pace around the block and then 3 laps at 7:00 pace. Then you get into the progressions. 4 laps at 6:30, 4 laps at 6:20 and 4 laps at 6:10. Then 3 descending laps and an all out mile. We had to pass 2 progressions and 3 laps and I got all 3 progressions. So that's good. I got 10th out of everyone but 3 girls in front of me are red shirting. Hopefully I get to travel. That would be dope! 

I got to go to camp cuz I was top 15. We ran 2 miles in Brian head and ate dinner. It's a good time! 

We also got all our gear! It's like Christmas in August!

Am- 1 mile easy.

Pm- drove to Navajo lake and ran on a trail there. It was super pretty. I struggled the last few miles. My belly hurt so bad, but I kept going anyways. It was a beautiful trail so it was worth it

Drove to a trail they call the marathon run. It was soo pretty and I felt really good until the last hill. I struggle up it but it was ok. 

The way out I ran with julieta and Madison. At 4 I stopped to go to the bathroom, and flipped with Morgan cuz julieta Madison and sharley kept going. The way back was good. It seemed to go pretty quick on the back. 

It's kinda hard to get into the pace. The mileage isn't a problem, But the pace is quick so that will take some getting used to

7 miles at 50%. We were hauling today. We did the dike and we could either go 6 or 8. I went 6 and then added a mile with danielle on the track. Averaged about a 7:05 the first 6 miles and then slowed down my last mile. 

We had our first day of weights today! they were lit. I loved them. Its super nice to have the weights coach to watch everything you do and call out everything. We did RDL's and Squats today. But we didnt do squats with a bar, we did it holding a plate in our arms and its sooo much better. We planked for a while too. Also every lifting day you get free food so thats dope!

warm up and them form mile (actually like .75 on the  turf), waited a little did a few warmup laps and then started our workout. We had an 80% run today. Its literally just a race. You do two warmup laps and then 3 laps on the track at 6:00 minute pace and then you run to home depot as fast as you can. Its 3 miles total and alllll up hill pretty much. It was very hard and not quite what I was expecting when coach said 80%. He times it and I was about 20:15ish (we subtract for how long we are at the light and i didn't know that). Then once we got to home depot, then we did 3x3 sets of hills. each set is a 10,15,20 second hill sprint. Those weren't too bad. They were actually pretty fun. 

Oh boy am I sore. My hamstrings quads calves and butt have never been in so much pain lol. I hope it goes away soon cuz i'm dying. Its super nice that school hasn't started yet cuz I got to take a nap today and it was literally the best nap of my entire life! Ill probably do a shakeout mile tonight.

1 mile shakeout hobble around the block. I was going pretty slow. I just wanted to warm up a little so I could roll out

Today at practice was pretty fun! The coaches drafted teams for our road race this friday, and we had a run on our own with our team. Me, Angie, Maddy, Kamryn and Sierra are on Coach Houles team. Im super excited for our race and I'm not sure what we are going to wear, but I am sure our outfits will be beautiful. 

Any ways, warmup, .75 of form mile and then 6 miles. We ran a 4 mile loop and then did 2 more cuz sierra went shorter. We didn't kill the pace today so that was also AMAZING because I am sooo unbelieveably sore still. I went and rolled out in the training room and then we had weights. I like weights. we did some more rdl's and squats today. we did them outside cuz the football team pushed back their time and of course we didn't know. The nutrition bar is literally the best thing about weights. I love that place so much

Warmup, form .75, run with our teams again. We ran to bicentennial park today. It was good! Sometimes it's good to run in smaller groups.

Warmup and then drove to the race start and warmed up a mile and did some strides. I started strong and for the first mile I was pretty close to the pack. I fell off the 2nd mile and started picking up ground the last mile and a little bit. I caught a few people and started moving pretty good after 3. I was 10th overall, buuuuttt three of the top girls are redshirting so hopefully I get to travel! Drove back and ran a mile with Kamryn. My ankle is doing this wierd thing and it doesn't hurt when I run, just when I walk and bend it past 90 degrees. Hopefully it gets better shortly. I talked to the trainer about it today and he didn't seem too worried since it doesn't hurt when I'm running and thinks it will be ok! So that's good!

SUU INVITE!!! i have been looking forward to this day since i moved here. Me and alison ran to the course before the high school race and that put us at 6.00 and then i ran around a mile at the course. I have missed my pine view team and it was so unbelievably good to see everyone. THe girls ran so good and i was very happy for all of them. I got to talk to roberts and that made me the most amount of happy and scottie ran a very good race for just getting his appendix out. kudos to him because i love him. I love running and i love everyone <3

warmup and form .75..Ran a very dope loop, probably my favorite run i have done in cedar, so thats DOPE. Im not sure what it was called but it was very dope! It went on a cute little trail and it was down hill for the first 4 miles, so that was a nice perk. the last 2 miles were a little tougher, but it was fun! then 10 strides after.

well, i already wrote this once, but then the wifi turned off so now it will be short. we had a workout. 4x2k's with 1 minute recovery. that was very hard to have so short of a recovery, especially being in the back of the group cuz my recovery was like 30 seconds. the 2nd one was better and the third one was hard. coach pulled me after 3 and i cooled.

 

there is the dopest thing in the trainers. its like a giant bood pressure thing but for your entire legs! it feels so good and its supposed to help with bloodflow. whoever invented it is a very cool person. and i want to be friends.
