8 lonely miles, I ran during lunch and 4th period because I had senior pictures after school. 6 of those miles were supposed to be at "easy" pace (5:50-6:50) and I averaged about 6:25ish on those. It actually required some mental focus so that's was definitely beneficial, and today's run was completely continuous, no stops at all. We've got speed tomorrow, I'm excited to see how that goes

Speed today! Workout was 2x1000m, 3x800m, 4x400m all at 2 mile pace. Everything had 90 sec of rest. Splits were 3:03, 3:08, 2:30, 2:31, 2:32, 72, 72, 67, 68. I'm making some headway on the mental side of things, and the 800's were definitely tough. Fell off pace a little bit on those. But other than that, everything went really well, and I'm super glad I was able to pick things up a little on those last two 400's, that was definitely a confidence builder. Chipping away at that mental block. Shoutout to the team for being super awesome

10 miles this morning, and I felt much better than expected. Dylan came with me but turned around at 3.5 miles because he only had 7 today. So I was mostly alone, but it was nice because I was able to run whatever pace I was feelin. 7:13 ap

Just a normal recovery run... Until I took a weird step and something in my foot shifted and now I can barely walk. No bueno.

Bikes today. I took a weird step on the run yesterday and dislocated something... So I can barely walk. Bikes ftw. Getting my foot looked at tonight.

Update: when I got out of the shower after practice, I stepped and my foot popped back into place... Not the most pleasant experience but eh it feels better now. The tendons and ligaments are sore though

Bikes again. My foot still hurts, but it feels structurally sound, the tendons and ligaments are just very sore from being stretched around I think... Should be better tomorrowish

I figured I'd start running today because my foot has felt fantastic so I did and it went well! We had speed, so I warmed up a mile with the guys and did some of it! 3x400m @mile pace, hit 66,66,66. The full workout was 6x400m @mile pace then 4x100m all out. After my 400's (which felt fantastic by the way), I hopped on a bike and did 2x(8x(20 sec super hard, 10 sec easy)) with 2 min in between sets. WOW. That bike workout doesn't sound too bad but once you do it... major ouchage right there. It took a good 10 minutes of resting my head on the handlebars to convince myself to start a cooldown after I was done with that one. Good times.

So this was an interesting one. I warmed up with Chuck (mighty windy outside, almost lost my new hat 😬) then got started. I was in the first heat with Talon Hull, Hayden Penrod, and Joe Benson so it was definitely gonna be a good time. The first 800 went pretty well (came through at about 2:16), I was sitting in about 4th... Then things got interesting. I've been sick since Tuesday (been trying to keep it under control) and it definitely flared up. Legs felt like lead and lungs/throat were on fire. Kinda frustrating because I know I'm capable of getting to finals and I gave what I had today, I just didn't have enough to give. Hr never went below 85 today. Body not up to par.

On the bright side, Chuck (4:36), Michael (9:36), Guppy (5:20), and Gan (5:27) made it to finals so congrats to them!
