AM: This morning run went very well. It was difficult getting up at first, but when I got up I stared to wake up and felt fairly well. We ran from the high school through the parkway loop out and Washington. From there we went through the loop into green springs then reran the same loop through green springs. That part felt somewhat difficult. My form was a little off this morning. I think this was partly because I did power cleans Saturday so my shoulders and arms ached. My back was also a little strange because of this. Nonetheless it felt good to get up early again and get back into things. It was also nice having everyone back from the break. I'm definitely going to ice tonight. 

PM: We got everyone together and ran a different route today from the high school out onto telegraph into Washington and back through Sandburgs. I did not feel as worn at as usual which was nice.

PM: Iced and stretched for 10 minutes

AM: This morning I got up at 5:30 and just chilled for a bit got some food then took off to practice. When I got there, I started by doing some squats. I did 4 sets of 3 and maintained a heavier weight than usual. My form was a little rough at firs, but it got better as I went. The. We went on our 15 minute loop. It felt easier then usual. 

PM: Well, this was definitely one of the most difficult workouts that I'd ever done. I started the first 1200 and was already worn out by the time I got through with the second. I think I may have still been worn out from yesterday's run. My first 3 were slightly quicker then they should've been which was not smart of me. I need to learn to relax on longer reps. When I got to the lest rep we made it about half way through and I began hyperventilating and my legs seized up on me. Instead of pushing my strides longer I let them shorten which was also a mistake. I lost the pack on the last rep and barely caught up to a point where I was about 50 meters behind on the last rep. I was very frustrated with myself for having let myself die off on the last rep. That was totally on me, but as coach says it's better to learn from our failures then dwell on them. So even though this work out was not what I wanted, I can still take away some thing from it. First off, I need to do more stretching. I stretched and iced the night before, but it still wasn't enough. Secondly, I need to relax and clear my mind better during my reps so I don't panic when things start to go wrong. It's all about how you respond to the difficulties you face during the workout. I also relearned to stick to my pace throughout the whole workout to accord burning out. This afternoons run was a learning experience.

AM: This morning I got up and made my way over to the high school. It felt good to stretch my legs out for a little while and run, although I was still fairly wiped out from the past couple of days.

PM: This afternoon run felt good. We went out towards the square d' sac and back further into Washington out towards the turf farms. I think my colds finally going away thankfully. We got about 7 miles in.

AM: This morning I got to the high school and began benching. I think I was still worn out from power cleans because I was feeling really sore and couldn't do near as much as usual. After lifting, we took off on the run. Right as we began we found a water bottle and kicked it for about half way through the loop. Sadly we couldn't make it all the way around and it ran out of water.

PM: This afternoon we ran from the highschool down through mosquito, into Sullivan, up through the neighborhood, and then finished off from telegraph throug the loop. It was a good run we started a little fast. When we went through Washington we found a ton of goats which was pretty epic, and we also brought up the question of wether or not changing the color of a stop sign every few years would throw people off.

AM: This morning I got ate breakfast and left for our run. It felt pretty good getting up early, although my calfs are feeling kind of thighs. I had a really bad cramp the other day and need to keep stretching and rolling. Yoga helped tons.

AM: I ran 10 minutes to my house to grab a coat and some warmer clothes before the race. Then to warm up we went on a 15 minute loop. It was crazy. Traffic was terrible. Next I had my race. I got up to the starting line. I was nervous but felt confident. We took off fast. My first thought was that our whole heat was going to burn out. We kept pushing and made it to the 400 mark. Our first lap was a minute 3 seconds. It was insane. Our second lap was much slower and the race really started to hurt around the 200 mark, but I kept pushing. I kicked way too late, somewhere around the 100 mark. I need to get used to picking up the speed even more at the end. I came in towards the back of my heat and still PRd with a time of 2:12. It was a good race. Next time I would like to push my kick a little harder and earlier.

AM: This morning felt good. Long runs don't feel as difficult anymore, but recovering is still difficult. We ran 85 minutes. We began our run by going up east ridge and went over the plateau. Afterwards we came down the side by the hospital and went back down onto the trail. Then took the trail back over to mosquito and back around for a big loop. The pickups were not too bad. 

PM: This afternoon was good we did an easy 25 on the usual route.

AM: 2 mile loop.

 

PM: Today we had a Jv race. My legs were dead from the day before and the race last weekend. I got ready for my 400, got to the starting line, and began the race. I started in lane six and quickly started to pass the majority of my heat. My legs started to feel it around the 200 mark, but I kept going. I gained more ground than I was expecting. My chest began to tighten as the race got harder. I got to the end and barely lost my heat, but took 3rd overall. That is the first time I'd placed in the top 3 for a meet. My time was close to a 58. 20 minutes later I had my 800. I read an article on drafting this last weekend and decided to try it considering this race was a smaller meet and I thought I might be able to use it to shave off some time. Unfortunately, it did not go as I'd wanted it to. I stayed in second trying to draft for the first lap. The guy at the front was going nowhere near my usual pace though so unfortunately all I was doing was slowing myself down. We got through with our first lap it was a minute ten. Wayyyy slower than usual. I heard the time and decided to take off. My second lap was much faster, although I got to the 600 m mark and didn't even feel tired. This was a problem, so I decided to sprint. Corbin followed me and passed me the last 50m, but I barely passed him with about 20m to go. I placed first overall, but my time was bad for usual, a 2:18. Six seconds off of my PR. I had a lot of fun placing for my first time and improving my my 400, but next time I definitely won't hold back at all on my 8. I can't wait for next meet, hopefully I'll PR again. It was a fun meet.

AM: This morning we got our longer run for the day out of the way by going on a huge loop through the industrial park and boulevard. My legs are feeling really rogh. I need to get a new roller since I lost mine at the meet. My legs definitely need some stretching.

PM: We went on a quick 25 out through Washington and back through sandebergs. This week has been a good one. I've been reaching a lot of my goals. I improved my 400, got a 29 on my act, and did well on my youth city council interview.

AM: we lifted and did the regular loop. 

PM: We ran from the high school up through tip to green springs and back. Midway through the run my foot started feeling weird towards my toe, so I had to run weird for a little while luckily it went away after a bit.

AM: We did the regular 25 minutes. Yoga felt amazing and helped me recover.

PM: dillan and I ran a big loop for 25 minutes for our warm up and then we raced. I ran a 5:09 mile, slightly slower than I'd hoped. Still, it was my first race and I feel like I did well and pushed myself. I probably went a little quick on my first 800. My first lap was a 1:13. My third lap I slowed a little too much and fell off a big pack in front of me. Towards the last 300 meters I almost caught the pack again. The race went pretty well, but I definitely could use some work on the mile.
