I had an orthodontist appointment today, so I came late to do the speed. I did a mile and a half warmup to the track, then a mile of speed changes. Then everyone else finished their workout, so I was on my own. 12 200s. Split them up into 3 sets of 4.

I was in kind of a bad mood to begin with. Maybe not so great to have while doing speed. The first set was alright, hit 35, 34, 38, 37. Towards the end there I started to crash mentally, and it went downhill from there.

2nd set was the worst. I don't know what I hit because Bill never read me my times, but I am grateful because if he did I would have just crashed mentally even more. I had a hard time staying positive. My legs were killing me, and I couldn't breathe or catch my breath like I normally do. But I think I know what the problem was now.

3rd set Bill told me I didn't have to do, but then I felt guilty not doing the full workout, so I did it. I think the first one was a 35-36ish, then from there on I don't know them. except for the last one. Bill told me I had to hit 37 or I would have to do it again, so I hit 36-37ish. But yeah, very tough workout mentally. It doesn't seem like a hard workout, but I was dying with no one there to push me, and in the heat. For a minute there I had really wished I hadn't come and had just done a long run or even a little bit of fartlek, but now looking back at it, I am glad I did it.

Then I did 2 grass laps cool down.

I made state in track as a freshman!!! :) (okay, well not in the event I wanted, but I still made it!!)

Today was the JV regions meet. Since I made state, I couldn't race. So I cheered people on, then left with Nat and Tomy for a run.

Might I say that they go really fast? their slow recovery pace is actually like my fast pace for a long run, not recovery. We did grasslaps around sugahouse. I kept up with them for like 3/4 of a lap. Then I slowed down and decided to go at an easier pace. I did another lap, and because I knew some of the others only went for 30 minutes, I stopped at 2 laps thinking that I did more than I was supposed to. But then I realized I finished Before Nat and Tomy, and I knew that I didn't do something right. turns out we were supposed to do 3 laps and barefoot strides. Oh well.

4 miles for the day. I like tapering!!!

So FINALLY I ran. :) My right side was KILLING me though. The first part of the day was miserable. It got to the point where I didn't think I could race. I really wanted to though, and Dominique looked like she didn't want to race, but if i didn't then she would have had to. Tricky situation.

Started to feel a little bit better as time went on. I warmed up with Dominique for a mile and a half, and it felt alright. Just hurt when I twisted a little bit, so when I focused on my arms it didn't hurt. I told Bill I would race.

So then we all did strides and drills, and then handoffs (counting them as .25). Dominique's/my leg was going to be the third.

We went to the Bull pen when they called us, and then we went to the line. Our team was last from the beginning, but I expected that. When I got it, we were last by like 100 meters. I started of kinda slow then realized that I was supposed to sprint the entire thing, because it was only a 400. So I did. I felt like I was catching up the first 200, then my arms started to hurt. My side was fine!! Got to do those arm swings at night. Starting now. :)

Then I did about a half mile cool down before we had to clean up and get to the bus. I ran at state as a freshman!!!

Went to watch Nat and Tomy race, then my mom needed help at home with the twins so I left with the hursts. I helped with the babies, then my side was KILLING me again. So I tried to do what I did yesterday, which was rest for a couple hours. Fell asleep until 10:15, then my mom wouldn't let me run in the dark so late at night. So no running, again. I hope my side isn't too bad.
