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 .
