35 minute run today felt good to get out. I played an hour of basketball before hand so I was thinking about cutting down the minutes just by about 5 minutes, but when I got out I felt good so I just kept going.

I pushed the minutes up a little more today. It felt good to keep going.& kept a good pace going through the whole run and went out to Washington and back. It was nice to get out before settling in for the evening and hanging out with the family. My legs are feeling good but fairly sore, but that's just getting back into things.

It felt good to get out today. I had a very quick 15 minutes below 7 and then my pace died down a little bit. It felt good to get out. Late fall is always one of my favorite times to run because the first time I ever really started to go out and train by running was during the late fall of my freshman year. It always reminds me of my first time training and how far I've come since.

15 minute warm up then race:

The race was pretty good today. I am still frustrated being so behind everyone else, but it's ok I'm just getting started. The race was solid though. I ran my first two laps both under 1:10 splits which was epic. Then my thrid lap I was pushing through and as I came around the corner I saw my time wa at 3:30. I was on pace to go sub 5, but sadly slowed my last lap without realizing it. I ended up coming in at a 5:30 not a bad start. Some  things I was happy about with this race was that I had moments where I was hurting really bad and forced myself to push harder bringing me to gain on those ahead of me and that I had moments where I felt some excitement when I was hurting. I also was happy because I did a decent job at calming myself and focusing in on the race. One thing I'd like to improve on is 

After the race, I had my interview with Dartmouth. I was extremely excited and nervous at the same time, but racing helped calm me down quite a bit and get me focused. Despite this, I was breathing pretty hard on the way home and ended up throwing up which wasnt fun right beforehand. I ended up being alright though and the interview went well.

30 minutes:

Well, I blogged earlier, but it didn't save so I'm retyping this from memory.

Today was awesome. While I was on my run, I heard coach talking about doing better at being on top of things and being better team members. This brought me to do a self evaluation, and as I ran, I came to the decision that I need to be more deliberate and thoughtful in my actions. Coach gave a talk on mindfulness back in the summer and that's something I need to improve on. I often find myself getting distracted easily and not getting everything done that I would like to. I also find that sometimes I don't think through my actions and how to align them more with what my goals are, so I'm setting a goal to practice focus. I hope to start trying to do tasks longer without breaking focus and thinking about every last thing I do and questioning wether or not they line up with what I'd like to do long term. One thing I know I'd like to cut out of my day to day schedule is the episode of tv I'll sometimes watch after school. I k is being more mindful will cut out the unnecessary activities of my day. 

As for my run, it was awesome. I found myself speeding up big time as I evaluated myself. I dropped from a 7:15 pace to 6:30 very quickly. I ended up 2 miles in succession at a 6:40 pace. It felt incredible to push. I know I need to be careful coming back into it too, so I'll continue to find a balance. I'm excited for tomorrow. I'm hoping to stick with the top jv guys the best I can. Hopefully I'll be back to running with the varsity guys soon .
