I went 52 minutes. It felt good moving, but my leg still dosent feel the same. It&#39;s been really frustrating and I&#39;ve been really worried about hurting it even worse. Hopefully slowly ramping up the minutes well get me back up to speed and keep me from getting hurt. Still debating whether or not I should try racing tomorrow, I think it would make for a great way to jump back into things even though I&#39;m not even near to where I was. Luckily all the fun is in working towards improving not necessarily the result so I still have a lot to gain from this season. Although I&#39;ve been injured, my circumstances have&nbsp;made me want to work even harder towards reaching my gosls in&nbsp;track. I would love to state qualify in any event I can, and while I know it&#39;ll be a huge jump and won&#39;t be easy, it&#39;ll be worth it. One thing I&#39;ve learned from this season is that setting high goals that force you out of your comfort zone is very important in improving. Such high goals take personal commitment and a belief that it&#39;s attainable and that&#39;s something I&#39;m going to try my best to keep in my mind throughout the season. I&#39;ve got some serious work to do for track, but first I need to focus on completely getting better. Keeping both of these goals in perspective will hopefully keep me healthy and improving.</p> Mon, 02 Oct 2017 06:00:00
