Normal track warmup, then mile warmup and mile speed changes, then changed shoes. We did the speed today in relays, my partner was Emmaline. First we did a 4x400 with two people, so shorter recovery between the 2 400s. Then we did a lap and did it again. Then we did a lap and did just one team this time, doing 200s (some of the sprinters did it with us! I've always wanted the sprinters to try a distance workout...) we did 4 200s each. We were supposed to do all of it fast, they weren't timed because it was about effort. Felt pretty good, it was really hard by the end but I worked through it. Felt like a good workout! Mile cool down.

Went to JV Regions to cheer everyone on! At the beginning I went with Garek and Dakota for an easy 6 mile recovery run around Woods Cross. Calves were tight.

State today! I didn't get as much warmup as I wanted, but oh well. I know what to do tomorrow. I did two laps around the grass and stretched, did two strides, and raced. I didn't feel ready to start but tried to push that from my mind. Came through 400 at a 73, then slowly started to die. My last lap was an 84 even though I was trying to kick.Ug. Really mad about it, that means in the mile I stayed the same speed this year as last year. But I will prove tomorrow in the 3200 that I may be the same speed but I am stronger and can hold a pace longer. :) I've got my strategy all figured out, and this time I am going to race it and not just run it like I did today.

I did about 2 miles of cool down.

Day 2. I got more warmup this time, about 2 miles plus strides.

My plan was to relax first lap and not go too fast, even though I knew I was going to be towards the back. I came through at about an 80, then just told myself to stick with the pack. What I didn't anticipate was the group splitting into two groups, once I realize the pack I needed to be with was ahead I tried to catch up. Then I was by myself between the two groups, I should have just done a quick surge and caught up. But I didn't and I crashed and died. I got 11:56, really slow.

Cooled down 1.5. Warmed up 1.5.

I was tired even before I started warming up. I was in third alley with a bountiful girl, they should have just combined third and second alley into one because they only had two each. Oh well. I started too slow and when I cut in I was way behind everyone. Came through at I think a 70, I started to kick with like 200 left, but really kick with 100. In the last 100 meters I caught the bountiful girl, then closed on another girl but she fought and barely beat me. 2:27 which I guess is okay for how tired I was. At least I wasn't last. 

Well seeing as my Junior year pretty much sucked, it has motivated me to train really hard this next year to finally do well. I didn't improve much this year, so I think what I'll do differently is be more consistent with mileage and core. I need to have a good tear next year, so a hard summer of training here I come. A goal I have is to have 4 consecutive weeks of hitting 80. :)
