Welp, steeple was canceled but no one told me so I ran there and chilled for a sec, realized no one was coming and then I ran a little more and ran home. Wish someone told me so I could have slept in a little. It’s fine lol 

PM- at 12;00 coach cancelled practice and we just had a 50% with 6x40 second pickups with 90 second recovery. 7 miles total. ran cross hollows with sam sierra and kasandra. my legs were so heavy the first couple miles and the first few pickups were rough but then i started to feel good and finished the last 4ish miles pretty strong so thats good. rolled out after

6 Miles, 10 strides, .5 miles cool after.  Good run. Legs were still a bit tired but much better. Also weights after. The weights coach had me sit on a roller on my calves with 130 pounds on my legs to get out knots and it seemed to help soooo much!! Leaving for flagstaff tomorrow and I’m pumped. 

Low key sad cuz some how I didn’t get entered in the 3k and I thought I was but now I’m just in the mile  oh well. Way excited to get to go at all 

Also last night I was in bed by 9:00 and I can’t tell you the last time that happened

2 miles with Julieta before we left. Sam and Julia joined us for the last little bit. 

Loong drive to flagstaff and then we went to the track for premeet. We ended up running 2 miles to the sky dome, and then a mile on the track and then drills. Since I am not racing til Saturday, I just finished 3 more miles on the track while everyone else did their premeet and I’ll do mine tomorrow. I’m pumped and finally feeling good again! Four days of speed is honestly sooo hard on the body, at least the first few times.

Am- 2 mile shakeout in the freezing snow. It’s cold. Ps, our hotel has the best potato’s 

Pm- came over to the track at 1:15 for premeet. i had to do it by myself cuz im the only one just racing saturday. Idk why i had to come so early, cuz i still wasnt allowed on the track and had to do all my mileage up top in the dome.  now im just chillin until the meet starts haha. 3 mile warm, and then 4 pickups along the straights in the upper part of the dome, cuz its hard to do pickups around the corners cuz there is a blind corners and you never know who is there haha. finished miles to 6. Rapidrebooted afterwards. 

It is very snowy here. I hope we make it home alive. also sad day cuz my dad cant come anymore cuz of the snow. stupid inclement weather. oh well. 

Also, i love our jumping coach so much. he is so cool. he is kinda old and went to the olympics and paces around with his hands behind his back all the time and makes funny jokes and his name is uzzie and it doesnt get better than that haha. 

Also my dad and Ellie are gonna come now cuz ellie told my dad that they are going! Hope they are ok

AM- 2 Mile shakeout 

PM- 1.5 Mile warm and drills and then race. We started out very very slow. Like I was leading the first lap and then with 3 laps to go everyone went. I felt ok, but it wasn’t the best ended up 5:19 converted, which isn’t bad and Is pretty consistent so I can’t complain.  Ps i wasn’t last and I was seeded last out of every person so that was good. Can’t complain for my first indoor szn ever. Cooled a mile and will finish mileage in a bit  

Ps roberts, we are currently at oreganos. We are waiting for our food 

3 Miles after I got back with max and Alison
