I’m going into my third year at SUU. NCAA eligibility-wise I’m a redshirt sophomore. I’m double majoring in PE-Coaching and Psychology.

80% and whistle hills today. We did it on the track. Since I’m just getting back into faster paces I’m going to start small and work up. Just so I don’t reinjure myself. So I only did 2 of the 3 miles. First mile was 6:00, second (block lap + a little on track) was 6:30. Then whistle hills, worked hard. Felt surprisingly good, felt like I could have easily finished the 3 miles but I think I should take it slow coming back just to be safe. Cooled down to 6.5

First official practice! It was a 50% on farm run. I went out 2 with the group and came back 2 with Danielle. 7:37 average

Weights later, it’s been a while. My body felt it. Did 30 extra burpees and like 20 extra lunges and dead bugs because either someone on the team yawned or was using the wrong leg or didn’t count out loud with everyone at the end of each rep. We’re stepping it up a notch this year lol. It’s crazy the difference now from what it was my freshman year (everything was so relaxed back then), now things are so much more structured, expectations are higher, but it’s so great because our team atmosphere is so much better now. And our resources are growing. We have amazing coaches, a nutritionist, weights coaches, athletic trainers, a sports psychologist, an academic coach, an athletic lab, athletic training room, brand new weight room, even a doctor at the hospital that works specifically with SUU athletes. And everyone previously mentioned is actually taking things more seriously, there’s more respect all around. Everything and everyone is stepping up their game. It was kind of a joke my freshman year, at least compared to how things are run now. And it’s also the best team we’ve ever had according to Coach, including the 2012 team Coach has been talking about and using as an example since before my freshman year. Kind of crazy how much can change in 3 years. 

Stretched, rolled out, and Drew elbowed my piriformis and dug into my illiopsoas, hurt like heck. Didn’t realize I was so tight. Now my hips are sore

Came home from work and was itching to run again. It’s been a while since that has happened, I think I’ve finally 100% pulled out of depression. Also, I lost weight this summer without meaning to. Just a couple pounds, but still. I think it was my lack of an appetite. Or loss of muscle mass. Or both.

Ended up biking 8.6 miles, 42 minutes.

Sat down with Coach last week and made a plan for building up mileage until I’m back to 10 a day. I’m starting that up this week, and I’m going to actually stick to the rhythms this time.
