Well, glad that’s over with! And I feel pretty good about it actually. I mean I sucked wind but I showed up and did what I could, and now I’m actually really pumped because Coach stuck with what he said, I’m still good to come to practice on Monday. And I’m pumped to be with the team again, I’ve missed everyone. I love it here so much. Coach said that this is the best team we’ve ever had, including the 2012 team. Our top 6 girls all secured top 7 on the all-time list, Angie set a new record with a 5:15 last mile. I frickin love my team.
Coach decided to only take 12 girls to camp this year, I was 12th but he’s taking a freshman instead of me. Which is cool, she deserves to go. And it means I can go to Salt Lake for family pictures so my grandma will be happy.
I ran a consistent performance, exactly the same as last year. Ha, both years I’ve been out of shape. But it’s still better than my freshman year. Made it 4 laps of the second progression, so basically 2 progressions. Started with 9:00 mile, 8:00 mile, 7:00 mile, then the progressions start. First progression is a 6:30 mile, second 6:20, third 6:10, then 3 laps idk what pace, and one mile all out. So I made it the 6:30 and 6:20 then got pulled.
I just stuck on the pack for as long as I could and that was that. Also, my shoe became untied before the first progression so that was slightly annoying, and almost fell because someone behind me stepped on the shoelace but I didn’t so it’s all good! The whole pack was fast. I ran one lap by myself because I was technically still on pace, but after that I was done.
I could’ve made it one more lap at least, but for what shape I’m in I’m happy with it. It wasn’t half as bad as I was expecting.
Got our new gear, it’s like Christmas in the summertime! Mile cool down.
