Track warmup then a mile warmup and a mile speed changes, then another lap. Girls did 2x400s because of the race tomorrow and boys did more (they don't race until Wednesday.) I was supposed to hit between 70-73. I hit 69, 72-73 (my watch didn't stop). Then cooled down.

Race: Davis Supermeet (1 Miles) 00:05:16, Place overall: 4
Total Distance

Idk how much warmup I got, I'm guessing a mile plus strides.

I got an okay start, settled behind the pack. Then the second lap I felt them slow down so I continued at my pace and luckily an opening came in lane one so I took the lead. Then tried to just relax that third lap, and then the last came and knew I needed to kick. At some point two Davis girls passed me, I'm not exactly sure when. I should have fought them off. I think it was closer to the beginning of the last lap but I'm not certain. Then the last 150 meters I knew the Davis girls had too large of a gap on me and was sort of just trying to hold position. 50 meters left I could hear Maddy coming up and told myself to stick it out. But my legs! It was like I couldn't move them any faster. She barely got me. I'm quite discouraged. I wanted a faster time, I was hoping to qualify for state (5:13). I know I've been improving but it's so minimal. I was really hoping for a jump. But, when Tomy was here he said you always have to be happy with a PR. So I guess I am.

About a mile and strides in between. 

Then the 800 was next, the first lap girls went out so fast. I honestly feel like my first 200 meters I was half working half getting myself in race mode. I was getting discouraged because gauging off of the other girls I thought I was going too slow. Came through the 400 at 70 so then I thought "oh, not too bad." Then I just tried to hold on. I passed a couple girls who obviously went out too hard. I think I could still have kicked harder. I think I need to work through the sprinting pain more than anything cause that's when I struggle. That burn though. 2:26.

Did some strides. 

I really don't want to think about my 3200 I wish it never even happened. But I'll use it as a learning experience I guess. To start off we went 81 then slowed to like 87. Yikes. So I took control. Then some girl fought me idk when I just thought I gotta hold her off. Finally we got to the curve and then I thought you know what? You can lead. I'll draft. That's my big mistake. She took the lead and then I tried to follow for maybe five seconds. Then mentally I just gave up. Came through the mile at 5:51 and immediately knew my time was gonna be terrible. My last 3 laps were 1:40, 1:32, 85. Hehe. Never. Again. Aubrey Argyle said "good job in the 3200!" I laughed and said a half hearted thanks. She had good intentions I'm sure. Time was 12:08.

Literally nothing between the 3200 and the 4x800. I went 74, 76 (2:30). My legs were heavy and I was tired.

No cool down either, haha. I think it was a good meet but I'm hoping to kill it at pine view. I know I can do better.

Sidenote: the Lehi guys are gonna have to let me know how that hurdler is doing. She wiped out really bad and they had to call paramedics.

I was jamming to my iPod and accidentally went over so I just finished to 11 :) ah well it makes Saturdays run shorter! Did my flagpole run loop and added VA loop and Shriners run. It was quite enjoyable, it reminded me of summer runs with the smells of barbecues and FOOD. Except for maybe the part where I looked down at the ground just in time to see the biggest rat I have ever seen and narrowly miss stepping on it... it scared the bajeebees out of me. I hope the boys did well at the race today!

Ran to the track, then we went to Sugarhouse and to the tree by highland and started a 10x1 minute on 1 minute off fartlek. The ons ranged from 5:25 to 6:20 pace depending on where we were in the park, and the offs about 8:00 pace. Bill was feeling good today I think! Had a hard time keeping up but I think it was a good day. I have been a little out of it today because I haven't had much sleep two nights in a row... No particular reason. Just restless and waste time at night. Imma try to get to bed earlier. Finished to 10 once back at the track. Left knee was bothering me a bit as well as the ball of my foot but nothing unmanageable.

Race: Running of the Leopards 5k (3.107 Miles) 00:18:10, Place overall: 1
Total Distance

Running of the Leopards 5k! I'm happy with it especially considering I did literally the opposite of what you're supposed to do the night before a race. I had a ton of brownies and stayed up until 2 in the morning because of the dance. Hahaha. Anywho, got about a mile warmup and a few strides.

Got out alright, Diwas took off so I wondered if maybe I should have gone out harder? But I made my way up and caught back up to him by the time we exited This Is The Place. When we got to the post office and started heading up the hill I just tried to stay positive and keep myself moving. I hit 5:32 at the mile, then used the downhill and once I got to Foothill just tried to keep the pace going. Mile 2 was 11:27 (5:55). Then coming down Sunnyside I struggled a bit. I knew I needed to start picking it up but I was having a hard time getting myself to start pushing even harder. Mile 3 was 17:31 (6:04) and finished the last little bit in 39 seconds finishing with 18:10. First woman!

Then cooled down a lot of grass laps with some guys and then some more (4.5 miles total). Then Bill, Diwas and I did Shriners run out 3.5 and back and added a little to get to 16 for the day.

On the cool down I asked Bill about how much time he'd add to make it measurable to a flat 5k and he said that because the first mile had the uphill in it too it'd be pretty accurate about 5 seconds faster, then the second mile 5-10 seconds and last mile 10 seconds. The turn onto the track also slowed us down and the rocks and gravel right after did too. So that means for a flat 5k it would have most likely been 18:30-18:35, obviously it doesn't count but still is fun to compare. I worked hard though. If anything it tells you my 3200 on Tuesday was not even close to what I'm capable of. Hahaha I'm gonna kill it at Pine View. In both the 1600 and 3200. I'm ready for a great performance.
