50% today on dikes. Holy cow my body was so tired. I’m definitely getting feeling better but not 100%. I ended up only doing 5.5 and then strides after. Meeting up with a few girls later to finish mileage

2 mile warm up, 8x800 with 60 second rest. coach started us at 2:50 and then slowed us down to 3:00 after one beucase the faster girls said their pace was too fast. I still ended up averaging 2:57 which is great. it was me brighton and sam and haley in a group, the last couple i fell off a little bit, but i was doing pretty good! by the end my legs felt way tired, kinda like noodles. started at 2:53, and had a few that were pretty similar to that, my last 3 were 3:00/3:01. cooled to 8

pumped for riverside this weekend

8.5 easy. coach decided to split us into "equal groups" today but it was me and sam and brighton and then everyone else. he made us wait 90 seconds before we could start running. we stayed the exactly same distance behind them the entire time lol. it was a good run. i enjoy running with those two because they are fun. 7:45 average. we did a new run today and it sucked. the last 4 miles were allllll uphill. just slightly, but enough that you could definitely feel it 

Brighton might quite possibly be one of the funniest and coolest people i have met. i never really talked to her last year but i really really like her alot.

Am- mile warm and then a 60%. It was definitely my best 60. I averaged 6:26 and I felt decent. I was with my group but I kept having to blow my nose so I had to slow down a few times. Everytime I would catch back up except the last time and I stayed the exact distance behind the whole rest of the 60. Mile cool 

Pm- 1.5 mile shakeout. My body was tired

Aam- mile shakeout 

OH MY GOSH. This was the best race I’ve had in a hot second. Lately I have had a really hard time staying focused when I run but today I was doing really good at telling my mind to knock it off and stay focused. I ran 35 seconds fast than last year and a 18:21 for a true 5k. Not exactly sure yet. I’m seriously so happy with it and I’m so excited to keep running. Cooled some with Alison and some with Brighton. Seriously so so so happy. 

And for the first time i think possibly ever coach houle acted like he was 1000% happy with me. like actaully. He always says good job but this time you could tell he actually meant it. 

Also if i was in the championship race i would have been right with Haley!!! AHHHH im happy and there is still so much more. i know there is. I have so much potential, i just have to keep racing so i can figure out how to tap into it.
