3 miles, faster than expected... Splits were 6:56, 6:11, and 5:36. I'm in better shape than I thought, that was very controlled. Runs like this make me excited for races. Definitely pumped, but trying to not psych myself out.

Speed workout today!! I did a mile warm-up, then 10x400m, the first 5 at 5k pace, next 3 at 2 mile pace, then the last 2 at mile pace. Splits were 74,79,77,75,76,72,72,71,64,65. I was able to stay on pace so that was grand. .5 cooldown. Also huge shoutout to USU for being straight up fantastic so far!

Rough time waking up today... I was supposed to be in the hotel lobby at 6:15 so I could be at USU practice at 6:30 but I forgot to set my alarm and I woke up to coach calling me... Big fail on my part. But that's alright because I still made it to practice. In the rush I didnt have time to massage my calf/foot or do my exercises so it hurt pretty bad. Easy 3.5. I went straight to practice right when I got home to see my dear team that I missed so much

First race back today! Wow it's been a while... My plan was to just stay calm the first mile and build from there. First mile was 5:05, and it felt pretty calm and controlled. Second mile was 5:26, so I slowed down a little bit, but I was either holding my position or passing people that whole time. Also just trying to stay with Parker. Third mile was 5:31, and I had to fight for that one. With .75 to go Jamie pointed at an Orem kid a little bit ahead of me and said o had to catch him and that made me scared because she sounded pretty darn desperate... I didn't end up catching him but I did all I could. I didn't die super hard but it left a fair amount to be desired. All in all not a bad first race back at all... I'm excited for state and Nike. Also, the team got third so we're headed to state!!! Huge shoutout to Guppy for getting 2nd overall and the girls team for also getting third and making it to state!

Good things:

1-Controlled first mile. Fast but not too fast.

2-2 seconds away my region time from last year. Not bad for not running for 2 months.

3-I fought every time I hurt. No giving up happened here.

Thing to work on- work hard to hold pace the last mile

Whistle hills up airport today... It was interesting. I had breakfast at ISU and drove back home and barely made it in time for practice. The workout was 3 sets of whistle hills. First 2 sets at 15sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and the last set at 30,35,40. I was able to stay towards the middle front of the pack up until the second to last rep. I had been slowly starting to feel more and more lightheaded and not able to see super well, but I just kind of brushed it off and pushed through. While we were jogging back down the hill to do our last rep I was forced against my will to the side of the road where I proceeded to throw up some of my breakfast (I hadn't had lunch and breakfast was 4.5 hrs earlier so I thought it'd be fine...). After I was done, I did the last rep on my own, and kneeled down on the road at the top because there was no was I was going to stand. I again threw up, 4 more times as I slowly made my way down the hill, to be exact. Guppy was kind enough to let me go to her house which was close and she and her mom set me up with an ice pack for my head, Gatorade, and an electrolyte pill. 15ish minutes later I was able to stand and I felt a little better. Probably the electrolytes and hydration. I'm going to start drinking salt drinks again to keep those sodium levels normal. Shoutout to Guppy, Momma Struthers, and everyone who did the workout. Good times.

Practice at 9:00 this morning, so that was nice to be able to sleep in a little bit! Mile warmup, 1.5 mile speed changes, and 1.5 mile cooldown. Fun stuff. I felt really smooth during the speed changes so that was grand.

State... Wow. Kind of surreal all day. I was super calm, not really worrying about it at all. We warmed up, sat on the line, and got started. I tried to stay pretty conservative the first mile, it was 5:12. From there I just started consistently passing people who went out too fast. Second mile was 5:20. The last mile I continued to pass people and move up in place. The split wasn't quite what I wanted, 5:33, but I passed 6 more guys in the last 400m and was mostly passing people the whole time. Pretty happy with it. Obviously the time isn't where I want to be, but I'm grateful I can run and push myself. Shoutout to Guppy for getting 3rd, shoutout to the girls team for getting 4th, and shoutout to us for getting 5th, reaching our goal!

Well... I went a wee bit over mileage today... I had 5 miles today. We ran the jail trail where we took some sick pics and I went .33 over mileage. Then we went to kneaders and had some quality french toast. Then we went and hiked silver lake in the frigid rain and we almost died of coldness until we ran 1.5 miles down the trail... So yeah. Lots of miles 😂
