AM: 

First official cross country practice! We did about .75 warmup, then we did 10 strides. My hamstring hurt a little on the strides. Then we did the state course as a cool down. Nice and easy. I've had blisters the last couple of days...they hurt so bad on Saturday that I decided not to go for a night run, I thought they might need some rest because they've only been getting worse. But today they were alright, hopefully they'll be gone soon.

PM:

We ran from Bill's house to Iceberg and then added half mile out half mile back to get to 6. Blisters were hurting the entire way. It was a good run, I just stuck with Dakota and Chris. Then had some shakes!

Today we went to Pipeline. I love how pretty it is up there! I felt really tired right off the bat, I don't think I got enough sleep last night. I should start going to bed before midnight. Anyway, after about 1.5 I fell off of the front pack. I just felt so drained of energy. When we got to the 4 mark we turned. I stopped for a bit, I felt a little sick to my stomach too. The way back was terrible, I was going so slow, about 9 minute pace. At that point I was just trying to keep going. I don't know what was with me today, but I gave what I had. My blisters were hurting too, but not as bad as last night, probably because I wore more than 1 pair of socks...they hurt so bad when I woke up! Couldn't go running later tonight because I babysat my neighbors right after work.

AM: 

Today we went to Sunnyside. We went to the gully and I did 3 laps. I went out the bottom because I wasn't sure which way we were supposed to go. I just went back the same way we came. When everyone got to the tree we did arm swings and step ups. Then we did a cool down. I went to 6.

PM:

5.5 with Megan! I ate a cookie right before without even thinking about running, and boy did I feel it. But it was overall a nice run! (with the exception of cars honking at us and scaring us half to death)

Today we did the rock run at JCC. It wasn't as bad as I remember it being from last year. I actually made it to the rock pile with the rocks, last year I remember dropping them way before it. I felt like I was going really slow, but it was really hilly. On the way back Chris caught me, I think he was late. It wasn't a spectacular run, but I got it over with.

AM:

 I did about 2.25 warmup, then later another .5 right before the start.

The first little bit I focused on the girl Bill pointed out and tried to work with her. It was on a hill where she sped up and I had trouble staying with her, and she gapped me. I tried to use the downhill best I could, but it just seemed like she was getting farther and farther away from me. I felt more focused today than I have been for past 5ks, but I guess it wasn't good enough. When other guys started to pass me I tried to go with them, I fought more than I have in the past couple 5ks. But it was a tough course. I didn't crash as bad as I have lately. I was disappointed that I couldn't keep up with that girl, but apparently she runs for the U. So that makes me feel a little better, but not much.

After I finished I did about 1.25 cool down before hurrying home so that I could get CPR certified for my job.

PM:

I did 3.25 on my own after a nice nap, had a headache the whole time though, unfortunately the nap didn't get completely rid of it. I got it right in the middle of the CPR thing.

Later PM:

Did 3.5 with Megan, then continued on by myself doing circles around my circle. Not smart to run alone at night, it's really creepy.

Next week will be a pain, it'll be hard to keep mileage up because I leave for girls camp on wednesday... this'll be fun.
