Ran to the school, then we carpooled to Granite's track. I really don't like their track. The track itself is in great condition, better than our track, but it seems like it's always windy (granted today was a real windy day) and people take their dogs there and their kids riding tricycles and they always hang out in lane 1. The worst was when we all almost stepped on this tiny dog in lane 1 and it came running at us and the owner yelled at us that "oh it's okay, she's friendly." No, that's when you apologize and put your dog on a leash and keep it close to you. People. NONE of them were on leashes. And there were like 10 of them. And you'd think when we're running laps over and over again they'd try to keep their dogs out of the way but they could care less. On one of the recoveries I legit ran into one because three of them came in lanes 1 and 2 right as I was passing by. I've decided the dogs are just as clueless as their owners.

Okay now that I've ranted about that, let's get to the workout. 2 miles warmup, 1 mile speed changes. Then changed shoes and did a lap. We did 1000, 2 sets of (300, 500, 400 - each w/ 2 minutes recovery). 1200 between. I hit slow times on all of that. I just felt really off and mentally was doomed. Then we did 200s, the first couple were ehhh not awful but not good. Then Bill managed to snap me out of it a little, hit the rest in 32-34. I really need to flip this switch in my brain to where I have confidence that I will do well at State. I need to convince myself that. Agh.

It was JV region today, so I did 5 miles in Bountiful then when I got home 3 more. I still feel a little off but I think by the end of the week I will be feeling better.

Shout out to Natalie because I saw her on my second run and she's my role model :)

We took an adventurous route to the U track, then went up to JCC cause we couldn't use that track (Granite's had a junior high meet going on so we couldn't use that one either) so we ended up going up to JCC and measured out 100 meters for 300 meters and did our workout there. It was a great workout, last speed of the year. I can't believe in 3 days it's all over.

We did a mile of speed changes, then 3x300s and 3x200s. I was supposed to hit 58, 57, 56, and I hit 57, 55, 53. The 200s were supposed to be 34, 33, 32. I hit 34.83, 34.06, 34.06. Then we ran back to East. Time to rest up for State, I know it's gonna be a great race.

Warmed up 2 miles on the track then did strides and drills. I got out alright, was surprised because the pack didn't go out as fast as I expected. Came through at 75.23, then 2:33.29 (78.06), 3:52.09 (78.81), 5:13.03 (80.94). I'm so mad because if I had kicked I could have broken 5:05 or 5:10 depending on how much I wanted it. I was hesitant and didn't want to push myself into that pain. I was overthinking it and psyched myself out. I counted the place I was in (7th) and sort of panicked I guess . It wasn't bad but I know I could have done better. 4.5 miles cool down.

2 miles (out and back) then strides and drills for warmup for the 3200.

Splits were 79.09, 2:41.57 (82.48), 4:06.48 (84.91), 5:31.61 (85.12), 6:56.77 (85.17), 8:22.33 (85.56), 9:46.89 (84.56), 11:08.34 (81.45).

Summary of the race: I got out okay, trying to relax. Then my plan was to make sure I went with the front pack, wherever that may be. At one point I was behind a girl who was fading and saw the front pack pulling away, so I surged up to make sure I stayed with. Then just tried to stay relaxed and keep it moving. Then people slowly started to fade and I wasn't really paying attention to that cause I was so focused but eventually realized I was in 4th place. Kate, Britney and Maddie were all right there just barely in front of me with 800 left. I got an adrenaline rush and almost made a stupid move, almost surged to take control but I told myself to relax and stay excited enough to have a kick. Yeah well my burst of energy faded by 400 left when everyone started to kick. I tried to go with, but struggled to get myself going. 300 left I started to pick it up a bit but not a lot, by then Mary and another girl had passed me. 200 left I tried to pick it up a little more not so sure I did but it made me continue at that speed, then 100 left I said I'm not gonna be outkicked and not get a medal so I really tried to kick. Luckily I had a gap on the 7th place girl.

I'm really happy with it, 15 second PR at elevation and Bill said it would've been faster than my Arcadia time at sea level. And I medaled!

Cooled down 1.5 with Garek and Bill doing grass laps and then 4 miles with Garek, Bill and Connor Baller.

Took a nap then warmup for the 800, 2 miles doing grass laps. Then like .5 of strides. I did a lot.

My first lap sucked. I didn't get out fast enough then trapped myself on the rail. Then I didn't move when I should have. Splits were 73, 72 plus the decimals to be 2:26. My legs were dead and I couldn't get myself moving but honestly I really only cared about the 3200. It was alright. I ran in lane 2 for a lot of it.

Cool down consisted of the .25 to the car and a lot of chocolate milk :)

Stoked because I got invited to Great Southwest, medaled and PR'd all in the same day!

Shout out to Garek for getting 3 medals! He never ceases to amaze me. I'm really gonna miss being his teammate cause he's an amazing guy.

Huge thank you to Bill, he's the best coach and I couldn't have done it without him.
