What's up with the wind lately? It's driving me crazy! I don't like the wind you see. Anyway, Track warmup of 2 laps and drills (and setting up the rail thing along the track). We did longer drills today. We were supposed to do time trials, but because of the wind we're doing them tomorrow (Yay!!!) So we did 3 sets of high knees, power skips, and sprinting up the huge hill with the K on it (or used to) by the soccer fields. Then we did these leg-over/under-hurtle drills. Then we did jumping-over-hurtles-and-on-top-of-big-red-boxes drills. And over-the-weird-type-of-hurtles drills. Then we did planks and wall-sits. And finally, split into groups. Some lucky individuals got to be done.

Distance went on a run. We went to 15th and then to Sugarhouse and did 2 big grass laps and went back along 15th and up Bonneview and then to the track that way, did 2 laps which got us to 10.

All along 15th I was able to keep up with the group. At about halfway through the first lap, I fell back, and behind Abigail and Kiley I felt like this was the end of my "going to be good" workout that I told myself I was gonna have before I started. Then I told myself to suck it up and just get the workout over with. 

I tried to catch back up to the group. I caught Abigail and Kiley, and then decided to try to catch Bill and Natalie. I was going downhill, and the wind was somewhat helping me, and then I turn and its like "WHOA!" because the wind is horrible. And then I slow down, my calves start hurting, uphills come my way, along with Abigail and Kiley, and then I feel horrible, and Negative thoughts pour into my mind. I lost the mental battle. 

Then I regained a bit of positiveness and tried to catch Abigail and Kiley, but they made a light that I just missed, and I was forced to stay back. There went my motivation to run fast. Along 15th I was miserable and just focused on running and not stopping.

I iced my calves and massaged them out a bit, so I hope tomorrow won't be too bad.
