We just went for a run today. We went up to shoreline, then followed it to the drinking fountain. Bill said this run was only 5 miles, but Abigail's garmin proved that wrong :) Anyway, the hills on shoreline were pretty steep, and it was SO HOT!!! I had cotton mouth and was so dehydrated, so on a lot of the hills I stopped for a bit. When I got to the drinking fountain it was such a relief, and I took forever there. Dakota and Olivia caught up while I was there. And even then I took a long time. We all finally ran back the legacy bridge way, and I was so happy to be done.

I went early in the morning with Natalie, Bill and Chris to the Bike and Run spot that we did last summer. It was a bit chilly, and at first I was glad to have a jacket, but it warmed up pretty quick. Bill and I started first while Natalie was getting satellite, and we had a pretty good lead on them, like a half mile. But that didn't matter they passed us eventually. When they did I expected Bill to go with them, but he stayed with me. :) I just focused on staying with Bill when I started crashing, and it helped. I fell off him, and then he yelled back to go another half mile, and so I did. Yeah, I was expecting to get 8 miles. I didn't realize how far I was ACTUALLY going until I hit the 5 mile mark. I had felt pretty slow, but then Bill had said that Natalie and Chris were going way fast, because we weren't going slow. On the way back it was just a mental battle of whether or not to stop. It was very, very hilly, but it was nice because with almost every steep uphill there was a steep downhill. So I focused on the uphills and told myself that there would be a downhill right after it, and it worked! I never stopped. I eventually tried to catch up to Bill again, but I never did. I always stayed somewhat within earshot of him though. It was a very nice morning! Although, Bill's car was having a bit of trouble...

Ug. I thought we were DONE with speed. We went up to sunnyside and did a lap and came back to the track, then did a mile speed changes. 

1st set:

-400: 76.5

-800: 2:55

2nd set: (400s)

-82

-82

-83

-85?

3rd set:

-800: 3:20?

-400: 82?

Okay, so I started out fine, then crashed mentally. The first set I was feeling good, but then the 800 I didn't do so well on. I tried not to let it affect me that much. Then the 2nd set I did pretty well on, but I started to crash mentally again. I wasn't in that great of a mood, and then Bill revealed that the next set was an 800 and a 400. I started thinking negatively even before I started running, so not too good. The first lap I completely gave up, then Bill started telling stuff to me, probably something like "don't give up! Push!" But I got really mad, not at anyone in particular, just mad. I started to sprint that last lap, and died the last 100 meters. Oh well. Then Bill talked to me and told me to win the next 400, and I did. So, just got to work on the mental part. 

Then did a mile cool down to get to 6 miles.

Today we met at sugarhouse and did the cemetery run. I focused on trying to keep up with the group the whole way there, and then Bill told us to do a 10x1 minute on 1 minute off fartlek in the cemetery. At first I was a little frustrated that we weren't told from the beginning, but then I warmed up to it. I think it actually helped me to not know what was coming so I could focus a little bit at a time. I tried to stay with  Bill the whole time, and I succeeded! I feel good about it and I know that I pushed myself. Then on the way back to sugarhouse my little lung problem started up again, so I just tried to focus on running through it. Ug, thought I  was done with the whole thing, but guess not. I hope it goes away soon.

Me and pipeline are not good friends. Yep, today we went to pipeline. So I had a choice of going with Bill, Natalie, and Susannah up the switchbacks or go with everyone else the normal way. Yeah, chose the switchbacks, not really knowing what I was in for. Bill said the first 10 minutes sucked, and then it was fine, so I thought I could handle it. I was able to stay with Bill on the switchback part, but then 2 more hills came and i lost it mentally, thinking that this was how the whole run would be. I almost stepped on a snake, fell off of Bill, and to make it worse, I got lost. Kind of. I stayed on the trail, then it got tons easier, so I tried to pick it up a bit to try to catch up to Bill. Yep that failed. As soon as I hit the road I jumped to conclusions. I thought that I must've missed a turn or something, so I headed back. Then I saw a trail that I hadn't seen before, went up it, and soon gave up on it because it was all uphill, and came back and decided to go back. Probably got about .25 out of that. Then I got lost where the switchbacks met the normal trail, and went the wrong way for about .25 and then realized my mistake and went back. Oh yeah, forgot to mention why pipeline and I are not friends. Because every single time I've been there I've gotten hurt, including today, where I fell and scraped my knee. But it wasn't that bad. And because I get lost almost every time.

I went on a run around my neighborhood. It was pretty good, except strangely I kept getting really frustrated at the most random things. For example: Hair in my face. The wind. And so on.
