VA loop to Guardsman then did Shriners run. Then a lap in the cemetery and back to the school. I hung on until we got to the U campus, by then I felt like they were speeding up. My breathing felt off. I backed off to my "comfort zone" as Bill calls it. I need to find my garmin so that I get a feel for what pace that actually is. Anyway, I wasn't in a good mood today and on the run I wondered how in the world I thought I could break 5 in the mile if I can't even keep up with my teammates and am the last one back every day. As if Bill knew what I was thinking somehow, he and Eleanor ran back along 13th and met me and ran back. He talked to us about our goals and stuff and then how he felt like he could get me to a 5 minute mile, but I'd have to work hard, and told me a lot of other stuff to be doing outside of running. This is why I have the greatest coach in the world. Thanks Bill!

Today we went down to Liberty, got a drink at the fountain, then went over to the new marks by the tennis courts and did 2 400s, recovery to the start, then went to the mile mark and did 2 800s, recovery back to the mile mark, then back to the new marks and did 2 more 400s. I was aiming for 80s on the 400s and 2:50s on the 800s. My times went 76, 76, 2:45, 2:52, 78, 75. The 400s felt really short, but I got that familiar burn in my legs I haven't had for a while. It hurt but felt good. Weird. The first 800 I felt like I was pushing pretty good, the second one I fell off Bill and if I would have stayed with him I would have hit 2:45 again. Wish I would have. The next 400 was hard, and then the last I forced myself to push. I surprised myself, I didn't think I could hit 80s, I thought it would be hard, but no I hit a 75! Now to be able to hit those 4 times in a row...without stopping...

I had to go to math help so i missed most of the warmup and drills. Recovery run today at an easier pace. I decided to stick with Bill. We went to Sugarhouse, did a lap, then down 21st to 9th and did that loop back to the school. In Sugarhouse I lost focus and started thinking about other stuff and accidentally fell off, so I caught back up by the light. Bill and I missed a light along 9th and zig zagged. Bills phone said we were somewhere between 7:40ish and 7:20 pace for the whole run excluding the last mile where we were adding on and such which was way slow. I felt kind of tired and sore from yesterday.

Today after the warmup and drills and stuff we went for our run, which was flagpole to flagpole run. We went to the Westminister flagpole first. When Dakota caught me (he started later) I decided to go with him, which picked up my pace. I fell off right by the school heading to the other flagpole. When we got to Presidents circle we did some type of a Fartlek workout, going hard up one way and down the other, then recover back up then down. It was just below the flagpole. Then I went with Bill and Dakota to add to get to 9.

Today was a good run. I ran with Bill, our first mile was really slow up 900 S. It was an 8:50ish, but then we picked it up a lot. We went to Sugarhouse via 15th and did 2 road laps then went back along 13th. At 6 miles we were at a 7:09 average, our pace got down to the 6:40s. We finished with 7:18 average coming back up 13th. Felt pretty good but the hills still get me.

First track race! I was excited but nervous because I didn't know if I would be able to do well, and time wise I didn't but at least it's the first meet. I warmed up with everyone before the boys 4x800 for 2 miles then a mile of speed changes. Then we went to a subway a half mile away to get some food but i couldnt eat anything because of my race. We went back and I warmed up again with Bill, Tilda, and Emmaline for a mile.

 I am really mad about my mile, I could have done so much better but, like Dakota said about his mile, I didn't want to hurt so I backed off. I was in good position for the first lap but fell back. 5:45 was my time. After my mile I got splits for the boys miles then we all went back to subway because I was starving and needed food and so did others. Then we went to a Jamba Juice a mile and a half away. I felt my sandwich alright, but not to the point that I needed to puke. I have a pretty strong stomach. Then we went back to the track, totaling 3.5 with more uphill than I'd like.

Then I did drills and such and raced the 800, I really didn't want to but Bill wanted me to so I did. I'm glad I did, my time still wasn't too great but I competed and actually fought. My legs were dead by then so I'm happy with it. My time was 2:35. I was 8th. After the 800 we did a mile cool down and went home.
