Today I found a new route. I went up to the turkey farm road and started at the t-bone trail. I'd never ran the route before and planned on flipping midway through. I began running. The trail was somewhat hilly. About 17 minutes in, the trail lead into pioneer park, so I decided to just do a big loop from pioneer park up to where I parked. I realized I might go over my time if I did the loop so I really pushed my pace. I ran down pioneer park and up through the industrial park to the turkey road and back to the car. I pushed the pace pretty hard and it felt good. I definately need to roll out my legs though.

AM: First half marathon today. I've never gone so far. The pick ups were difficult and my legs are paying for not being able to roll out, but I'm still doing well. We went to mosquito to Sullivan to hell hole to the fuelds to lins to the high school. We did two 15 minute tempos at 6;30 pace. There was a ten minute recovery in between. Our over all pace was 6:49 and we did 13.2 miles in 90 minutes. I was pumped.

PM: coach gave a great talk on randy paushc, and holt talked about stepping up for next year. I was shocked how good our team is even excluding the seniors that will be gone. I hope I'll be able to contribute to the team as much as possible next year. We did 25 minutes inside because it was storming so badly. It was a blast.

AM: 15 minute loop

PM: We went 8 miles for our afternoon run. I did most of my running between my races. I ran a 4x4 a 4x8 and a distance medley. My first 400 was definitely sub-minute. Then later I had my 4 by 8 and my team was just barely in last as I got the hand off a second or two after Logan and Colton. I really didn't want our team to pay for doughnuts so I tried hard to stick with Logan and pass him. I did well and stuck with him and Colton. They finished just a couple seconds before me. I was excited that I stayed with them during the 800 even if they were going a little bit slower than their usual pace. It had to have been one of my better times in the 8. Then I had my last 400. I started our 4 by 4. I managed to keep up with Xander for most of the race. He started to pull ahead of me with about 150 meters left. I started to realize I was slowing and pushed a little harder. I just barely finished behind Xander. I was excited that I'd kept up with him fairly well.

AM: We did our usual 25. My legs are soooo sore. I finally got a roller yesterday and rolled for about half an hour. I definitely had some bad knots forming. Also, I forgot an ice pack for my lunch so I had to grab one from my house and carry it back to the school. 

PM: I had a band performance so I had to do my run on my own which was a real bummer. I was still happy to get it done though. I started at the bottom of hell hole and went all the way up to where the trail meets telegraph. The last time I'd ran it I'd just arely began running with the XC team. It made me think of how much I'd improved since then and also of some of the future goals that I've set. The trail was neat. It was very green today and there were a lot of people out. My pace was slightly slow, probably due to being worn out and the trail having a lot of hills. I maintained about a 7:35 pace. My legs are sore, but hey feel so good after rolling. I'm definitely going home and icing. I also did about 10 minutes of stretching.

AM: 15 minute loop. I did a ton of pull ups and abs this morning. It was so nice. Lately I've been hurting a little bit more at the start of our runs. 

PM: We ran a 45 minute loop up into green springs and back down. My legs are feeling rough, but I'm pumped for tomorrow. Lately my 400 has been looking better and better. I've stopped slowing down and am maintaining pace. Now I just need to kick tomorrow and there's a possibility of a big pr. I can't wait to see.

AM: Did the 25 minute morning run. No yoga sadly cause the internet broke. 

PM: went on an epic 45 minute run on a new trail behind d-hills. I ran through the back hills and further out towards the free way. The hills were insane. Probably one of my favorite trails I've done in a long time. Then an hour later I raced. My right leg has been giving me troubles for the past few days which has not been good. Every time my foot strikes the ground the outside of my leg aches bad. My race did not go well. I pushed hard coming out of the blocks, but then slowed a little too much on the first straight away. I had. A hard time maintaining pace until I hit the last stretch and then I accelerated and pulled ahead. The last straight away was good but the rest was pretty rough.

Today I went out to mustang pass in green springs. I'd been there once before with the team but never ran it all the way through. I was moving pretty quickly which was good cause my legs have been having a little trouble lately. It was really green and there was a nice breeze which was very nice. It was a very solid trail run.

Today was extremely frustrating. I ran the parkway loop and we only had 70 minutes sue to tomorrow's race. We ran for a while, but the group stopped to use the restroom. I saw the level 3s in by as the rest of the group was stopped and because i didn't need to use the bathroom I decided to go with them. I ran after them not realizing they were in the middle of a tempo. I figured I could stick with Colton because I thought he was racing the next day. It turned out I was wrong. I stuck with them up until we hit the hill in green springs. When everyone else began doing the hills I realized Colton was running a different workout and flipped going back to the school. I was stuck at a stoplight for a while till the other 2s who had stopped caught up. We ran together till we came around by sand stone. As I ran down the road my leg which had been tense for the past few weeks kept increasingly hurting till it came to a point where the side of my calf was bulging in a funny way like it was enflamed. At that point I stopped. It took me another 5 minutes to make it back to school. I was barely moving and very frustrated. I talked to coach and he said to rest.

Well, my leg feels the exact same today after rolling and icing. I can't put any pressure on my foot and it's been very frustrating. To at least get some movement and exercise I did 45 minutes on a stationary bike and did some weights. I also rolled some more and iced.
