2 mile warm, 12x400's 4 with 2:30, 4 with 2:00, 4 with 90 rest, at race pace. then 4 more at faster than race pace. it was a dope on a rope workout. the best one i have EVER EVER EVER had. I stayed with sam and haley the WHOLE time (except the last 2 they went a little crazy cuz they are FREAKING fast). averaged 82's which was as fast as alison and julieta so that was the best!! were were supposed to hit 84-87's and we hit 79-83's. it was the BEST

Am- 2 in the morning on the treadmill at the gym

Pm- 4 with Ellie and then 1.5 at sugarhouse 

Tbh I never thought that this would be the group of boys to win state out of all the teams at pv. I always looked at older runners and thought they were so so fast (and they were) but I never ever realized how fast some of these younger guys would get. but they definitely proved me wrong and it was seriously soooo fun to watch. Congrats to Scottie the coolest brother ever ever.

Am- weights and 1.5 on the treadmill 

Paul texted all the people who are in the traveling group who aren’t traveling anymore and said we just had a 50% and I knew that the people who are traveling to conference had a workout so I texted Paul and asked if I could please please please go to practice and do the workout and he said yes. So that was dope cuz I really wanted to do it 

Pm- 8 miles. we had 3x2ks today. It was so good! We were supposed to hit 7:40-8:00 for all. Anyways, me Haley Sam and Brighton started together and Haley was killin the pace but we all just kinda hung on. Finished with 7:15. The next one me and Brighton lead. Once again the pace was fast so the last 2 laps I chilled it out a little. Finished 7:32. The next one sam was dying and I chilled for a sec with her to control the pace a little. But I also was feeling good so I just kinda let go and ran a little faster. I ended up passing Haley and Sam and was behind Brighton and finished in 7:45. It was the best! Never have I been In front of them at the end of a workout and it felt good! 2 cool with Alison. 

Another quality day. So excited to reap the benefits of hard workouts

10 mile long run by myself. It was actually wayyy nice. I started it pretty chill and slowly worked into it. I did the 1.5 miles loop into 8 mile dikes. It was beautiful weather and now I’m glad I’m done for the day

Wet on wet on wet this morning. It wasn’t too cold but pretty rainy for the first mile. Then it chilled out there for the rest of my run. Then I did 15x strides on the track and that got pretty rainy again. Ran home and finished to 8.

Something is wrong with my watch and it’s making me mad. It kept telling Me I was running 13 minute pace for the first half of my run. Which I WASNT. And that a loop I’ve done like 100000 times was only 4.5 miles when I know for a fact it’s 6. After about 3 real miles it fixed itself and said the right pace but the distance was way off. Figured it all out and for the mileage before the strides I averaged 7:27. So that was good

AM- 2.25 super chill 8:06 avg. 

Coach has put me in 3 group messages telling me I was going to mesquite for the workout today, one of which was a group of 3 people who are in the same boat as me-borderline travel. Then yesterday he sent a message to a huge group of us saying we are practicing on our own today. I probably should ask to see what I’m supposed to do, but I really really really want to do the workout so I’m just gonna show up and hope for the best. I do not want to be pushed into the group again that never has practice and never gets to do the workouts, I don’t feel like that benefits me at all. I start to get discouraged and tired of easy runs all the time. I like doing workouts. I’m starting to see improvements and even though I’m not racing, I want to keep trying and doing my best so hopefully I can kill indoor and outdoor. So as long as I can push to be in the practice group, I’m gonna. 

Pm- got to go to mesquite. It was freakin hot. I was melting just in the warmup. 2 mile warm, 2x1000,600,300. We were supposed to do 3 but I was dying. Just jogged with Brighton and Alison afterwards. A lot of people dropped early, so I feel less bad about it, it was just stupid cuz I have had 3 really good workouts but coach wasn’t there for 2 of them and then today was awful. But that’s the first workout all year I haven’t finished and every day can’t be great. Got to 7.75ish

Buffet after
