One Good Thing: I was always on the attack going after somebody rather than trying to avoid being passed. I didn't get passed once and almost caught Nathan while pushing forward. 

One Negative Thing: I could've kicked a little earlier and still think I could've gone faster. I wish I'd placed maybe one spot ahead of where I did. 

 

I'm finally going back to reflect on friday's race. I have some mixed feelings about the race , just like the thursdays death run. The good side of things is that during this race I met my goal of not procrastinating pushing up to the next group, I moved up one spot from the day before, I'm not hurting horribly, and I was ten seconds off a PR even after Thursdays competition. The bad thing about my run is I would have liked to still place higher, maybe up by Mikey and Alex, but I think that is a good thing because it means I have definable goals that are attainable. I was only a good 40 meters behind Nathan and maybe 60-70 meters behind Mikey and Alex which makes me happy cause I know I have the ability to stick with those guys still. Looking at that, I am really picking up where I left off which I am happy about ,but I am going to keep pushing for more. I am trying to make sure I am never just comfortable where I am resulting in settling. One of my favorite things about this race is that I was never comfortable sitting where I was and just avoiding getting passed. I really focused in on who was ahead of me and tried to go after them. It was such an awesome feeling. I couldn't believe how much better I did really focusing in on that. Another thing that really helped me was at my hardest moment during the race I thought to myself that I could choose an easy out and hurt myself in the long run or I could choose the harder decision and end up better off overall. This helped me keep pushing through. Overall, I was fairly happy with the race.
