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.
