Warmed up 1.5, then got going. First lap was 66-67, and 800 was 2:15. After that my lungs/airway started to seize up and things just went downhill from there. Finishing time was 4:40ish. It's a step in the right direction, but I just wish I was back already.

Recovery along the ocean this morning so that was pretty cool. I did 5 then 1 barefoot on the beach.

I did a tune-up workout for Arcadia this weekend. Due to the lack of availability of a track, I just did it on the path by the beach and went off the distances on my watch. The workout was 3x(400m,200m) at mile pace. My splits were 67,32,65,33,65,32. My breathing still got pretty bad even though I'm at sea level... Idk what else to do to help it. On the bright side, we spent so serious time on the beach so that was great

6 miles with Guppy in Cali, we found a super sick trail and there were tons of little bunny rabbits so that was pretty neat, and the view from where we were running was pretty fantastic. This place is beautiful.

Shoutout to Zack for telling me I'm in the invite heat for the 1600 at Arcadia!

I warmed up with Guppy, then I was going to do more miles but I decided against it because it was getting late and I want to save my lungs for tomorrow. Breathing hasn't felt very good.

I drove to the mouth of AF canyon during practice to try out the paved trail the lp guys have told us about, it's pretty cool. Definitely did a rage mile or two... There was a 5:44 in there. My coach said I can just do whatever this week, I'm not doing speed and probably not racing this weekend, just running on my own and learning to love it again.

Later on I felt like going on another run and I ended up going 6 so that was a good time

Weird run today. I was going to go a lot more than 3, but my HR was 160 pretty consistently and my breathing was bad. It feels like I'm breathing through a straw. I wasn't going very fast either, 7:30's. Idk what else to do to help the breathing...

No run today. I want to figure out my breathing (I found an exercise that helps!) before I push it and I wasn't feeling it today. Shoutout to Guppy for going to the Bastille concert with me and making that a fantastic time!

7 after work, I actually felt pretty good and my breathing didn't bother me much so that was grand. I just kinda made up a loop as I went and it ended being 7 miles so that was chill. Also unshoutout to that dumb couple making out in the back of a car at art dye park. I wanted to go hit your window but I was scared about what I might see 😬

Aquajogging with Kobe today. A couple days ago I had a weird pain in my quad that felt a lot like a bone pain, so I'm not messing with that. Just cross training this week and probably next. I will be racing the 800 on Friday though so it shouldn't interrupt anything as far as that goes. The workout was 4x(50yd hard, 2min rest) with 4 min easy swim in between sets. Definitely a tough one.

More aquajogging with Kobe today. Workout was 4x(90sec easy, 5min medium, 30sec sprint, 2min off) with 10 min warm up and 10 min cooldown. My legs are definitely tired from yesterday so that means I did it right I guess...

20 min core

Aquajogging with Kobe. 10 min warmup, then a ladder from 1 min to 5 min and back down, with 1 min easy in between everything. The fight is coming back. I'm ready to throw down.

I did another stress test at the hospital today... but they couldn't find the key to the treadmill so they had me sprint up the stairs until I couldn't breathe then stuck a camera down my throat. So that was thrilling. I got some drillls/exercises to do to help my vocal cords calm down so those should help a lot, and I'm on my way to being back! Back at practice I just did 20min on the bike to I could try to recover for the race tomorrow...

20min core and ice bath

Race today. I felt really good mentally going into it, and I'd been doing my breathing exercises consistently so that was good. First lap was 58, so that was pretty darn good, and it felt like the easiest 58 I've done in a long long time. Then my legs just died on me and they wouldn't respond the last 300. BUT I'll take the victory of my breathing not bothering me, and next time I won't do stair sprints the day before a race lol. Gotta get my legs to respond, time to start back up running. Feeling good physically and mentally. It's helpful to keep perspective on everything.

20 min core after in-n-out. That was fun lol.

Whelp. Speed today. The workout was the same one we did a little while ago, where we did 9 reps of something @800 pace starting at 300m until we fell off pace, moving to 200m and then 100m. Except we did 12 reps. I ended up doing 7 and trying to finish on the bikes because I was hyperventilating and couldn't get it under control. Splits were 45,47,49,34,32,32,31. We adjusted 2 seconds for the wind and had a a 2 sec buffer to hit pace. Kinda frustrating but gotta find joy in the journey I guess. On the bright side, my legs felt fantastic! I just gotta stay diligent with the breathing exercises.

20 min core

Climbing with Zack and a couple other guys so that was a great time.

Actually felt decent today! It was windy and cold and I went further than planned but my breathing felt good so I just kept going! I'm really happy about this improvement as far as breathing is concerned, it's promising for the future.

20 min core, and climbing tonight. Momentum @9:00 for those who want to come!

Premeet for the 800 tomorrow. 2x200m. 28.36 and 28.36 so that was definitely wild cuz I got the exact same split. Like wowzers. My legs were pretty heavy but felt better as the run went on. Good stuff.

Definitely a step in the right direction. I was really aggressive off the line so I wouldn't get boxed in, and it definitely payed off. Came through 200 in 27 and 400 in 58-59. The second lap I started to tighten up but I was able to relax and keep pushing. The last 15 meters a guy came up next to me and I thought "No. You're not passing me. Not a chance." And I guess I had another gear so I held him off. That is a very good sign that I have more to give. It's just a matter of being able to push myself to that level. Grateful to God for giving me the ability to run at all.

Broke my core streak gosh dang it
