Today was speed at the oval. 4 laps warmup, stretched then 4 more laps warmup and 4 laps speed changes. We did 6 400s and 200s switching off. My splits weren't good. The first 400 was 73ish. I think the next was 76, and I can't remember how the rest went but they were slow and not the 70-73s I was supposed to hit. My last/slowest 400 was 84 so yeah...The 200s probably ranged between 34-38? I felt like I started to have an asthma attack, but it wasn't as bad as it normally is and I could recover from it for the most part after each interval. It would usually start 150 meters into each one. But I was determined to finish the workout. I don't know why my asthma would be a problem inside the oval, but for some reason it was. I was really disappointed that I couldn't do the workout like I was supposed to.

Went up to Guardsman and down to the cemetery and did 5 hills, a lap, 5 more hills, then VA loop to get to 8 for the day. Whoops I've forgotten to do my core... Did my core today.

Up to the track, mile warmup, 2 mile speed changes, mile cool down then back to the school. My legs felt heavy and my calves were tight.

Today was Simplot! We drove up after school and after waiting a while I warmed up with the girls, we did the normal 2 mile loop. Then we did drills and strides, and then while waiting for my heat I did more drills and strides and running and stretching :)

I got out quick because I was scared I'd get boxed in. My first 200 was too fast. But I didn't care. I was trying to hit 80s to get that 5:20. I was really focused and for the first 800 I was pretty much right on, then after that I don't know because I no longer focused on time I focused on the girls in front of me and on catching them. I felt pretty even and from what I remember of my splits I hit 40s for the majority of the laps, last 2 laps were 41. (It's a 200 meter track). The last 2 laps were the hardest for me because I knew I needed to kick and was struggling to do so. I also wasn't sure of what lap I was on, when they announced the final time of the leaders I had 100 meters left and knew it was the last lap so I tried to kick as hard as I could. The only regret I have about this race is the last 20 meters, I didn't fight the girls that came up on me and they passed me. Other than that though I guess it was a good race. I made it to finals, I'm the fastest in the slowest heat, yay me. I did 2 miles cool down with Tilda.

Today I went to Sugarhouse and did 2 laps and came back home. Nice and easy, felt good to get some of the lactic out of my legs. I am kind of sore from yesterday.

Race: Simplot Games Finals (1 Miles) 00:05:32

Today was the finals for simplot. I did the 2 mile warmup, then had to hurry to the bull pen. I didn't get as much warmup as I would have liked, I usually do drills and stretching before races and I didn't get to today. My first lap was again too fast, 400 was a 75, then 800 was 2:38, 400 left I was exactly 4 minutes and then finished way slow with 5:32. At 800 I started to make my move but then with 600 left it went downhill. People started to pass me and I didn't match, I should have. I felt so dead though, I just mentally lost it. I know that if I would have focused I could have finished a lot faster, I wish I would have. My arms, oddly, were what hurt the most. My legs hurt too but not as much. I'll just take this as a learning experience and hopefully the next race I can break 5:20. I looked back to last year and i did exactly the same thing, I crashed the last two laps. I think I just lack the strength to finish, I hope this year I can change that. At least my indoor times have been slightly faster. I was hoping I could have PR'd by now, I know it's only indoor but I'd still like to be running faster times. I did about a mile cool down.
