Warmed up for 6 laps then did 4 laps speed changes. Then strides at the line.
I was at the back of the pack (fastest heat, had the choice between second heat or first and decided I wanted to go with the faster girls) but was still a 75 first 400. Maybe a little fast for what I was shooting for but that's not the thing I'd change most. That was my second lap - it sucked. I just settled behind Mary and Millika, I had thought they would pull through around an 80. It was a flipping 85. It did feel slow but I didn't think much of it at the time. Third lap when I heard I was a 2:40 at the 800 I nearly panicked, but reminded myself that I didn't need to make it all up in the next lap. I did pick it up and as girls went out in lane 2 on the backstretch to pass I slipped in on the inside staying relaxed. Then on the straight coming up on our last lap I decided I wanted to push the pace. So I picked it up. Then 400 left I really started to move (maybe it was earlier idk) and felt what it was like to kick (ish). I think third lap had been an 80. Passed a pack of girls. 200 left I started to fade. 100 I tried to sprint, I probably could've given a little more. Got outkicked by one right before the line. Last lap was around 78, so not really that impressive but I'll work on it. At least I negative split last 800.
Overall happy with it, I would have loved to PR but I'm getting closer. Less than a second. I'm headed in the right direction. I really want to get to 5:10 in indoor so I want to do the mile at Simplot but Bills pushing for the 2.
Cooled down two miles. Warmed up a mile like 3 hours later.
There really weren't many fast girls running the 3200. Winner was around 11:30. I should have won I was right there... First lap was like 82 so right on. I had settled behind a girl and next lap was 86. Took the lead cause that was too slow but next lap was still an 86. It just got worse from there. Came through the mile at 5:41. Then with a couple laps left a girl passed and so did another one. Then they gapped me and another one passed. A lap left I tried to kick but I guess I didn't have it in me. Or I didn't want it enough. Second mile was shameful. Finished with 11:49 meaning I ran a 6:08. I should have gone with that girl, I would have at least been 11:30 something.
Cooled down to 10. Shout out to the Lehi boys who ran a lap cool down with us, and to Diwas for setting a PR in both the 1600 and 3200! Chris ran really well in both too! Much improvement for our team.
