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!

4 split up throughout the day, warming up and cooling down with people. Shoutout to everyone who ran in finals bc y'all are great. Also huge shoutout to Talon for breaking the meet record in the 1600 with 4:08 and dropping the most insane kick I have ever seen (last 200 in 25) coming from 4th to first in 200m.

We met at the Hinckleys and went over to Willow park, where we saw Ryan and he came with us the rest of the way! Sami also came so shoutout to her! I definitely miss running with Ryan so that was a win. My foot felt really good for the most part, it just tightened up a tiny bit the last couple miles. Nothing some massage can't fix.

7.600.000.000.000.000.000.007.60

Speed! 2x(200m,400m,200m) with the 200's at 800 pace and the 400's at mile pace. Splits were 29,63,29,29,66,29. 1 min rest within the set and 5 minutes running rest between sets (with 15 lunges on each leg mixed in there). I was pretty happy with this one, my foot didn't hurt at all the whole time and I was able to stay fairly consistent. That second 400 needs a little work but it wasn't horrible. Just kinda fell off mentally. But no worries because I'm getting it back my friends!

Big shoutout to Austin for doing speed with us (well, some of it) and dropping a 61 the first 400!

8 miles with Chuck during third period today. We went by Smith's and up suncrest until we hut 4, then turned around. We gained some serious elevation that 4th mile and it made for some cool views with the snow. Legs feel pretty beat.

Shoutout to Thom and Riley for getting their mission calls!

Mile warm-up, 6 miles at "easy" pace (5:45-6:45) and 1 mile cooldown. I felt a lot better than expected today so that was grand. Average pace for the 6 miles was around 6:07 or something... Supa fun

70 min. Saturday. We met at the Hinckley's and got going. It was just a normal run with semi-dead legs and a low temperature. French toast after so that was fantastic and shoutout to Mama Hinckley.

Speed today. 6x400m at outdoor mile pace with 3 min active rest between each one. Splits were 63,63,64,68,73, then I pulled out. Asthma got bad and I couldn't catch my breath even within that massive rest. Straight couldn't breath. This is frustrating because I went into this workout so strong mentally and ready to grind despite the weather. Oh well. I'll do my best to help my lungs heal and hope for more cooperation next time.
