Personal:

Junior at SUU majoring in Exercise Science and minoring in Psychology. Served an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. Planning on graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Spring 2020 then going to PTA school after. Haven’t decided yet but I might take out my fifth year of eligibility. If I do, I’ll declare psychology as my second major and work on that my 5th year. We will see how running is going, if I’m doing really well then I’d like to stay and see what I can do. This is an opportunity not a lot of people get so I want to make the most of it and chase down my dreams. We will see what life brings.

I hate mondays. They are the worse thing in the world. You just go back to school after your too short weekend that was amazing and you just really want it to be extended, and then to make it worse you have to run again. On top of all of that, it's normally speed. GREAT.

I had an orthodontist appointment. Just keep on adding to the horrible monday. So I thought that it was just going to be a long run when I made the appointment what 4 or 5 weeks ago? NOPE. Found out last night that it was speed. oh joy, get to miss the one speed workout of the week.

I was able to go early and get done at the time I was supposed to start, which helped lots. When I got home I immediately got ready and ran over to the track. it's about 1.5 miles over there. Probably a bit more. When I got there, everyone was just finishing their 2nd set, moving on to their last one. So I got in 3 laps of speed changes when they were ready to start.

The workout was 3 sets of an 800, 600, 400. Did the first set with the group. It was really weird because one leg got super sore, and the other was just a little sore. and then I got a gigantic side ache, and it KILLED!!! Lap in between the sets and standing recovery. on the 600s jogged 200 and stood for the rest of the time. 

Next set I was alone. It was hard to have no one there to push me, and not have a feel to where I am. I went too slow on like all of them. I was getting super slow times, but I guess that happens every monday. My legs were hurting really bad, and they felt dead. Bill left it up to me to stop or do another set. I chose another set.

3rd set, not much better than the 2nd. But I pushed myself, and it feels kind of weird to be doing the type of speed where I am actually pushing hard. Yeah, I admit, I've been taking it kinda easy on the speed the last couple weeks, but I realize my times are not fast, and so I'm going to push again.

I'm just glad I got it over with. Did a mile cool down with the team and then ran home to get 9 miles.

Today we did warmup of 2 laps and drills, and then we went over to the hill with the asphalt on it and ran up a little up that and along the cement a-ways. We were placed in groups of 3, and I was with Natalie and Chris. Those fast people!!! We did 8 sets. I just tried to stick with them and pushed.

Then we went for a run. Bill said 30 minutes out 30 minutes back. We did shriners run. I tried to keep up with Bill, Tomy, Natalie, Chris and Caden, and by the round-a-bout Caden and I decided to back off a bit because they were going sooo fast!!!! Haha we changed subjects so easy...ha. Thought this was a recovery run? Not apparently to them. 

Got to a bit farther than the fire station, got about 6.5 in there. add the warmup, drills, and hills (1.5 miles) to get to 8.

Meet at Woods Cross. I was scheduled for the 1600, 800, and 400, but we all scratched from the 1600, so in place of that I ran the 4x400m relay. Team warmup of 1 lap and stretching, then I did 3 laps with Dominique. I ran 2 laps with Grace after, and then it was time for the 800.

I tried to get into good position, and got out kinda fast. I think I was 4th for the whole first lap. 77 I believe. Then for the 2nd lap I tried to focus on getting on my toes and working my arms a bit. Apparently I don't have good arms. Will be working more with my arm swings. Bill told me to start moving with 300 to go, and I tried to. 150 to go I really tried to kick, but didn't actually happen until like 100 to go. My kick is kinda weak, and others have super strong ones, and some girl behind me had a super strong one. I just wish I would have gone with her....oh well.

Then I raced the 400 next. Not my race... definitely. I was in the 2nd heat, lane 3. I don't like lanes. I got out hard, and I just tried to maintain the pace. I think I slowed down a bit. But the last 100 I really pushed and used my arms, and I think I did pretty well.

Then I ran 2 miles in between the 4x4 and the 4. I'm counting drills and strides as a quarter mile. Oh, and handoffs.

Then came 4x400. I went last in my group. We did pretty good I think, considering. We were B team. Ha we had like 4 teams. Well, I just tried to finish strong. there was a girl from another school, I think WX, who cut me off with 200 to go, when I was trying not to let her get in front of me. Nearly fell, made me a little mad. I don't think it looked like she cut me off, but she did, enough for me to slow down a bit and then start up again. That's really angering. Whatever.

Then I did more cool down to get to 5 1/2. Looks like high mileage the next couple days. :(

            Normal warmup of 2 laps and drills and stretching. Then we did a mile warmup, 2 miles speed changes, and mile cool down. We started out with what seemed to me to be a fast pace. I kept up with the group for the warmup and like 3 laps of speed changes, when I realized I was like sprinting the straights. I slowed down a bit. I was watching my knee to make sure that nothing was wrong and such. It had been hurting when I did certain movements, and it was like a sharp pain, but when I run it doesn't seem to hurt too much. Just watching it now. Hope it's not going to be too bad.

           Track meet. 2 miles total warmup with Olivia and Camille. Mile first.

           So I was placed in the fastest heat with Natalie, so naturally everyone was going to go out really fast. I tried to hit my times, but I was crashing mentally. Got to work on that. Got a 5:54. I was really disappointed. It's frustrating when all you want is to PR and you're getting times that are 10-15 seconds off of your PR.

           800 was next. I was put in probably the slowest heat, but I didn't care. I was already disappointed with today. I decided I was going to make myself happy. first lap I went out with the front girls, but I wasn't expecting to be in the front so immediately, so i thought I was going too fast. But when I went around the curve by our team spot, Bill yelled to take control, so I did. I ran scared the last lap, and got 2:42. Wish I would've PR'd, but that's alright. I got close. I'm just glad I did alright.

           Did 2 1/2 miles of cool down. Then got shakes!!!! They were huge....ha
