8 Miles with ellsbells!!! She came to cedar yesterday and we went hammocking and went to a devotional and then some people came over and played games. It was a good time. Then she went to bed and everyone else watched hitch at josh’s (quality movie that I think I’ve watched 5 times in the last month). Anyways, she was gonna just come up for the day but she ran out of gas lol and didn’t want to fill up (also she didn’t bring any money) so she spent the night and we ran this morning. 

Ran out to Home Depot and on the trails behind there. 8 chill Miles. She got this wierd pain the last mile in her abdomen and couldn’t breathe. It was really wierd. I hope she is a-okay

Hiked angels landing. Mile shakeout after

Am- steeple practice at 7. Getting a better hang of things so that’s good! 2 Miles chill after

Pm- pretty much the toughest workout of my entire life. Coach also stuck me with the A group. So we did a mile warm and then a 3k at 85% hitting 88’s every lap. Which for me, is barely slower than my 3200 race pace last year. I hung on pretty well until the last 2 laps then I fell off and Morgan also fell off and we worked together for a bit. Then we had 90 seconds rest and did 14x400. The first 6 were supposed to be at 5k pace, the next 5 at 3k pace and the last 3 at 1500 pace. To say the least the first 6 were decent and the next 8 I played a game called see how long you can stay on the group before you die and fall off. Usually that was about 200 meters. The last 8 were very consistent tho. I hit 85/6 almost every time lol which was way slow but it was fine.  At least I did the whole thing without dying.

Coach had on this cologne at practice and every time I ran by I thought I wasn’t gonna throw up. It wasn’t a gross smell, but it definitely did not settle my stomach well while running lol 

Tried to ice bath after and made it a whole minute. I had enough pain for the day.

Also found out I’m racing the 3k and the mile this weekend at NAU so I’m stoked for that. 

Also I had more important news but i forgot it so I’ll keep you posted if I remember.

AM-  1.5 miles very very very chill.

Also Maceys boyfriend dallin scraped my windsheild this morning before my class. Literally the nicest person i have ever met. 

PM- 5.5 Miles. Actually at 50%. Definitely didn’t take that for granted cuz that doesn’t happen a lot. average 7:18. My legs were sooo sore. Rolled out after. Then smoothies and now weights

2 Miles and then steeple practice. Getting much more comfortable going over the hurdles. If anything practice is helping me regain a little flexibility which should help my piriformis continue to heal cuz most problems from that come from a loss of flexibility. Which all makes sense cuz I have lost lots of flexibility after I quit dancing 

6 Miles pre meet. 2 Miles warm, 2x400 and the starts and cool down

Happy birthday to my good friend Maximus. He’s a cool dude and we went bowling for his bday. I bowled two strikes in a row, and bowled the top score of our first game. But our team (me josh max and Julieta) lost miserably both times to the other team

On our way to flagstaff for a meet. Way pumped. No shakeout this morning cuz we will do one when we get there. A little sad cuz I was asleep when we passed lake


Mile shakeout once we got here. I forgot how beautiful flagstaff is 


Mile warm and drills and stuff. Then the mile. I was the last person in the fast heat so that’s always fun. We started sooo fast and I was ok through 3 laps and the last 2 I really died hard. My legs were so tired and felt kinda like noodles. I’ve never felt so tired after a mile. Ran a 5:36 which converts to a 5:26 which is decent. Only one person in the slower heat beat me so that’s good. Definitely not as good as last week but I’ll get there. Mile cool down

Mile warm and then the 3000. We were supposed to do it as a good workout. I was really strong through 6 laps, and ok the 7 and 8 one. My last 2 were a little strugglish but they were ok  I’ve got to work on opening my stride. Ended up 11:20 which converts to about 10:55 which would be pretty similar to my pr in the 3200 so I’m pretty happy with it. Excited to keep racing and see what I can do. Can’t complain about how things went considering the higher mileage and decently hard workouts. Cool to 8.5

7 Miles on the trails in flagstaff. They have the best trail systems and I wanna dig them up and put them in cedar. I also wouldn’t mind living there. It’s beautiful.

2 Miles of torture through the snow. Lived in the snow for like 45 minutes and I’m already struggling with it lol. My face was sooooooo coold. It’s so sloshy and wet 

Shout out to Dakota, who doesn’t blog anymore but used to, for scraping snow of literally every person on our team that traveled windows so that we could drive home when we got to the school. Seriously the nicest guy 

Also new high mileage week!!
