1.5 warm, race, 2 mile cool down. Oh boy. That race was definitely not my best. I felt wierd and tired. It was very much up hill and I was struggling. At least there is no where to go but up from there. 20:40 was my timeish

Drove up to the mountain today to do a workout. 2 mile warm, 2.5 miles at 80%, .5 at 5k pace, 3 miles cool. I felt pretty decent today. I started slower than a lot of the girls, but I stayed an equal distance behind the whole time so that was good. The cooldown felt very nice

warmup, 6 out toward the airport. I took it kinda chiller today, cuz i didnt really feel like running 7:00 minute pace. Averaged 7:30. I ran in the back with Morgan and Paul for the first half and then ran the 2nd part with KaSandra. It felt good to just go an average pace.

warmup, and then 2 warmup laps and 3 laps at 60% on the track and then finished the 60% to Home Depot. Its a sad day when you do the same 60% and 80% and you do the 60 a whole minute faster. But that just means i am getting fitter. 

After the 60, we did 5xlong hill repeats. They were long and hard and after, my legs felt like noodles. The fastest girls went up to the mountain today, but coach had me stay this time. I am only supposed to go some of the time.

Warmup, Form mile, and then 8.5 down to the hospital and looped back. Oh boy, today was pretty much the best day of my entire life. WE WERE ALLOWED TO RUN 40% and it was AMAZING. Honestly, probably better than christmas. Averaged an 8:00 minute mile. It was the best cuz my legs are so unbelievably sore. The sorest I have ever been ever and that is not an overstatement. 

PS, athlete study hall is the absolute stupidest thing ever. We have to go 8 hours a week and i am running out of things to do. I am already 3 weeks ahead in all 3 of my online classes, and we have only had study hall for one wee. Whats gonna happen when I finish? thats a darn good question

warmup, form mile, and then we had a workout at bicent. We had 1000 m repeats. We were supposed to do 7, but once you fell of the front group, coach pulled you. I got pulled after 4. Its a little frusterating becuase I know that I can do 7 repeats, they just might not be quite as fast as the front group. I'll get there though. ran back for a total of 6.

1.5 mile shakeout later in the evening. 

I get to go to riverside this weekend. Me and KaSandra aren't racing in the championship race we are in the open race. Im super excited I get to go, because the race is through an orange grove on packed dirt downhill. So it should be pretty fast!

warmup, form mile and then 6.5. We did walmart canyon. Thats my favorite run we do. The first mile is uphill, then the middle 3+ miles is allll downhill. Then it gets kinda hard, but it doesnt seem too hard because the middle part is so easy. There is like a mile and a half gradual uphill and its tough, but i really like it!

warmup, form mile, and then 6 miles at 50% up the canyon. I felt really good today!! after, we had 10 strides and then i ran a half mile with ashley to make it an even mile! It was freezing when i got to practice. Its only september, whats gonna happen in december? I think i might cry and while im crying i might die. Fun fact: i have never in my entire life been on a run in real snow (the inch we get in st george doesnt quite qualify)

I found out that study hall is the bestest time to get on the blog :) i actually read peoples now! I should be doing a thing on canvas, but canvas wont load for anything, so ill just have to do it later. 

im so happy today cuz my biology teacher is gone and so i have absolutely no class. 

I also am suuuper excited for our race this weekend. Im just in the open race, but I'm so excited to get to go!!! I also hope we get back in time for our first home football game cuz i want to watch!

Practice was cancelled cuz the weather it rained alll day until the evening, so I ran at 7:00. I did a one mile warmup and then 5 miles at 60% with 2x30 second pickups every mile. And then a mile cool down

It was really good the first 2.5 miles of my 60. I was going down Main Street and it wasn't hot and I was feeling awesome! Hitting my paces and everything. Then I got to the flip around point. I didn't really how downhill it was in the way out, but it was definitely up hill and SUPER windy the way back. It wasn't as good, but considering the circumstances, it wasn't half bad. One mile Cool and then I packed for Riverside!

Drove to California for our race! Traffic was awful so it took us an extra hour and a half, but it was fine cuz I slept. 

Anyways, premeet was good. Ran to the course from our hotel, and then ran the 6k course. Then we did a 1k at race pace and starts. 7 miles total

Race day! Mile shakeout at 5:30, but no one it our room got told so we were all late. after, i just chilled in our room for a while cuz I didn't have to go the race at the same time as everyone else. 

Warmed up with KaSandra. And then race. I did decent! I got out strong in a good position. I think I started a little too fast for the first mileish, cuz I was very much struggling in the end. Anways I felt strong until the last mile and I started struggling. I pr'd tho for a 5k! I hadn't ever broke 19:00 in a true 5k and I ran a 18:52, so that's dope!

Warmups, form mile and then dykes. It was FREEZING this morning it was 50 degrees. Friday and Saturday is supposed to be 35 in the morning!! i am gonna cry. Its only september and up north is already supposed to be getting snow. 

On the bright side, its too dark to have practice at 6:30 so that means it is at 6:45 starting tomorrow. I am super excited to sleep in.

I accidentally forgot my student ID in my pants i wore to the football game. So i cant get food until i go home and get it. I am hungry, but i have class in 20 minutes. 

Fun fact: i have been wearing 2 jackets all day cuz my bedroom is freezing. Everytime you turn the light on, the fan turns on and its cold and i have no clue how to fix it.
