I felt like I was going to be sick but then I thought,&quot; No I can definitely keep going so I&#39;m just not going to barf&quot;, so then my body was like,&quot;K sure whatever dude&quot; And so I continued on, catching up every time I had to stop for a potty break. I then proceeded to obliterate the repeats with swagger.</p> <p>But in all seriousness this run was a great confidence booster and I felt really strong despite my obstacles.</p> <p>95 mins 13.8 mi</p> <p>Today I am grateful for all that the coaches do for us.</p> Mon, 05 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Feb 03, 2018 <p>AM-- Went and did Prospector with Jose and Evan at 6:30 am in order to be ready for prom. We were all very tired having it be the end of the week and all. Got lost in the dark a few times but thankfully the skin walkers&nbsp;were elsewhere.</p> <p>60 mins 8.5 mi</p> Sat, 03 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Feb 02, 2018 <p>Running is fun and good for the buns</p> <p>65 min 9 mi</p> Fri, 02 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Feb 01, 2018 <p>AM-- weights</p> <p>PM-- Lots of things went wrong throughout the day (one of those things being me forgetting my spikes and diet crap) but I still improved by 3 meters. Not my best race today but not too shabby either. Still gonna kick trash like always</p> Thu, 01 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 31, 2018 <p>PM-- Good ol green springs run today.

I&#39;m absolutely going to destroy the track this season and long beautiful runs like these get me pumped up to compete. My shins hurt somewhat but I just gotta keep takin care of them. Sure wish our front group was bigger tho...</p> <p>Today I&#39;m grateful for the opportunity to run and my improvement over the years.</p> <p>Also, here&#39;s some tantallizing and seemingly useless knowledge I learned today: the phrase, &quot;eschew obfuscation&quot; literally means to avoid confusion. Ironic, huh?</p> Mon, 29 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 27, 2018 <p>AM-- Turkey Farm Road w/ neg split. Went solo on this one and it&nbsp;was my hardest run of the week. At the start of my run my hands&nbsp;went numb (because I&#39;m too stubborn to pack gloves and a jacket with me for some reason smh). Overall I think I did&nbsp;well&nbsp;and had good form.&nbsp;Idk how quality my negative split/entire run was but I figured as long as I was pushing hard and hurting&nbsp;I must be doing an ok&nbsp;job.</p> <p>72&nbsp;mins</p> Sat, 27 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Jan 26, 2018 <p>PM-- phew this workout whooped my butt. This has definately been a crazy week on my legs. But as my good friend Xander once said,&quot;pain is only weakness leaving the body to make&nbsp;it stronger&quot;. I had to focus on my form a lot while I was tired but I think I zoned out sometimes. But heck my legs are gonna be so shredded&nbsp;it won&#39;t even be funny.</p> <p>50-60 mins ish? I still don&#39;t have my watch yet</p> Fri, 26 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Jan 25, 2018 <p>AM-- 15 mins after getting huge</p> <p>2 mi</p> <p>PM-- 62 mins of running. We figured out our new hill circuit and it&#39;s going to be dooooooooooope. My legs are getting tired as the week goes on but I laugh in the face of danger Job 5:22-24</p> <p>8 mi</p> Thu, 25 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 24, 2018 <p>PM-- Had the usual pace workout today except with 5*1min cv&#39;s instead of 2*(5*30secs). Beast &amp; Feast was before as well.</p> <p>Today I still felt somewhat sluggish but I met the paces easily. When our dope supergroup formed we didn&#39;t miss a single distance (jk maybe 2 but barely off). We all took turns leading and had some epic camaraderie. Stuff of&nbsp;legends.</p> <p>Today I&#39;m especially&nbsp;grateful for the support I recieved from my team after my family, my house, and my cow was shamed during 6th period. #WWBD. Also, I seriously need to fix my watch and stop copying Colton&#39;s blog.</p> Wed, 24 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 23, 2018 <p>AM-- weights and morning run&nbsp;(15 min)</p> <p>2 mi</p> <p>PM-- 50 min&nbsp;trail run around mustang pass. I was pretty pooped and had to form check a lot. Also rolled my weak&nbsp;ankle but it&#39;s better now.</p> <p>6 mi</p> Tue, 23 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 22, 2018 <p>PM-- Furthest long run yet of track season! pickups 1-2-1-3-1-3 w/ 5 min recovery in between.</p> <p>This run was super fun and went by a lot faster than expected. Towards the end I was getting pretty tired and my ankle/knees started hurting some but hey I&#39;m comfortable with uncomfort. However I do need to roll, stretch, and ice my ankle because contrary to common belief I am only human. Anyways all of us level 4&#39;s (hehe I can say that now that&#39;s so cool) crushed it and had fun. (Except for when we waited for Jose to use the bathroom and my legs turned to rock. Only bad part)</p> Mon, 22 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 20, 2018 <p>Today was a beast run! Went out to the middle of nowhere on the arizona strip and decided to take up a dirt road. It was called sunshine trailhead or something like that but due to&nbsp;rain and the time of day I started it was actually pretty cold and dark ); It was super muddy but I found a sick gypsum mine and a wierd tunnel/hole in the side of the hill. I&#39;m positive we ran this trail once before actually in the summer (but last time I didn&#39;t find treasure). Anyways I had a tough week because I jumped right back in after being sick. But despite being tired and having&nbsp;sore legs, running has been really fun lately! It&#39;s always super rewarding now instead of just trying to survive haha. #perspectiveiskey</p> <p>PM- 65 mins</p> <p>So this is another new blog&nbsp;and I hope it actually works this time around.</p> Sat, 20 Jan 2018 07:00:00
