AM-- 2*5 min EZ tempo, 2*7min tempo, 5min thresh. Long workout run with a solid crew today. It's good to have Julien and others running with us again. Overall really good run except that I threw up for the first time in months... just forgot my medicine so it's cool. Another great confidence booster and I can't wait for Hurricane!

PM--Today's races were pretty good! I felt like I was pushing hard and I was pretty surprised when I heard that I didn't PR. It's all good though becase I'm almost there. I just need to transfer everything I have worked at into racing. Overall, just more and more focus. I'm excited for this season though! Nathan and I are on our way to smashing it.

Today I am grateful for the strength my teammates give me.

AM-- Today's race went really well! I don't know what exactly what I was thinking beforehand but my mindset was a lot different from before. Coach Robs recommended counting steps and stuff to refocus my race game and that helped a lot when I started to zone out and get tired. I had a lot of fun today and I'm remembering how to really race now! I think it's important to realize that your coaches and team can do everything in the world but until you are racing for yourself, you won't become what you want to be. I only PR'd by like 2 secs but I can see a lot better things in the future, whether it be some crazy-A perfect race or 2 sec PR's like the one today. Afterwards I had to hurry and cool for Preference and stuff and then I dipped.

Today I am grateful for kind people

AM-- long run w/ 5min EZ tempo directly into 10 mins @ CV(add 10 secs). Then 5*30sec hills at 1600m effort.

Overall a really fun run but I felt sick all morning. I hammered our CV and almost caught up with the other guys even though my pace was supposed to be slower... heheh. But after the hills I felt pretty sick so I took it in early for 70 mins total.

70 mins 11 mi

PM-- chill run with the crew. Finished at the kiddy slide today.

PM-- Today was super fun! First off I would like to say that whoever took last in the 4*400m owes Nathan, me, Evan, and Julien doughnuts because we won. Also all of the other races went really well! I think the twinkie race was the fastest I've sprinted in my life. I did not complete all of my minutes today...

AM-- Aw heck yea another PR today in the 2 mile! Pr'd by like 8 seconds this time! This race was awesome. Still things to learn of course and still gonna improve. I just need to focus on lap 6 and 7. My splits were like 4-5 secs slower than other laps and if I just stay mentally tough again that's like 10 more seconds off my time! Not to mention getting good sleep (cause I didn't sleep well last night) and maybe trying like a nose strip + wintergreen to help me breathe. I'm just trying all these little things to give me racing confidence (like taking a freaking cold ice bath yesterday but it healed my legs like a babe). Anyways, if I keep this up I'll have a state Q in no time.

30 mins 4 mi of warm and cool

Today I am grateful for my mom

AM-- long run w/ 5 min EZ temp then straight into 10 mins @ CV pace (+10 secs). Finish with 5*30sec hills at 1600 effort. Pretty fun run I must say. Another great confidence builder for the week! My goal is to get more and more sleep these next few days because I feel like I could've performed better if I had rested more (had to stay up for some HW... yeah I know it's dumb). But yup just keepin at it and ready for another good week.

AM-- This was a bad race. I died really hard and my mind just wasn't in it at all. I feel like I let down myself and my team... I can't change it now though so I just have to learn from it. It was just one bad race though. They can't be amazing all the time. I won't let it get me down! Like coach was saying, next race I'm going to just focus on one thing: going fast. Not letting my mind get in the way of what I'm trying to do and having fun. I'm excited for the next race actually! (Jeez I tend to overthink things.)
