Felt awful today, no energy. 7:37 average. Going to do a second run, hoping it goes better than this morning. After the run Haley rubbed out my ankle, it hurt so good.

Second run with Jenny 5.75 miles at 7:53 average. It was nice, was stuffed from bread and soup night cause you know, it was all you can eat bread and soup so of course I'm going to take advantage of it.

Drove up to the road above the C today, warmups, half mile warmup, then started the 60%. I still feel drained of energy but I worked really hard today and definitely gave it my all. I ended up averaging 7:19 for 5.5 (including warmup) so for 5 I think I was below 7:15 or really close to below. (The range was 6:35-7:20). I was happy to be in the range, I know it took a lot more effort than it should've but I worked hard. I just gotta give what I have. Considering the elevation and hills too I'd say it was a successful workout! Cooled down to 6 then added another mile with Ashley and Jana.

Also, stoked because I get to go to Pre-Nationals! I somehow convinced myself that coach was going to take me off of the traveling team because I've had two bad races in a row and Jana passed me up last week making me our 8th, maybe it was stupid to think but I'm determined to do well these next couple weeks so I can kill it at Pre-Nats :)

Went to Mesquite for workout, workout was 3 sets of 4x400s and an all out mile at the end starting slower on the 400s and getting faster each set with I think 30 seconds recovery for the first set, 60 for the second and 90 for the last. Hit the times for the first 2 sets then on the last one I came in well behind the pack and coach pulled me aside and told me I'm doing 6 miles a day for a week at 50%. I was a bit discouraged but went to start the next 400. Then coach said it starts today. I was very discouraged then, I have never been told not to finish a workout before, in high school I was always expected to finish. But I know its for my own good. Cooled down some on my own then some with Angie. On the bright side, coach took us to a buffet! It was sooo good, I was stuffed.

Went to the road above the C again! It was a bit odd to be with the group but not be doing the workout, but doing it at a slower pace was actually pretty enjoyable, it is so pretty up there with all the fall colors. 7:48 average Got my test results, ferritin is still low at 39 but its getting up there. Vitamin B12 is >2000 so thats a shock, too high but I don't think that's the cause of fatigue? Idk. I don't know much about B12. Everything else seems fine. What's wrong with me then??

Pool workout this morning, I think to give our legs a little break. 6 10 second pickups in the middle. Lasted an hour. Coach says a run is optional, idk if I will though. By the end I was exhausted, the last 15 minutes were hard for me just cause I was so tired.

We went to the course early and did our workout, we warmed up then did two 2ks. I didn't think coach was gonna let me run them but he did! He just said to stick 50 meters behind. I didn't really know what that meant, was that 50 meters behind the last girl or 50 behind the pack? I assumed it was to finish 50 meters behind not just stay 50 meters back because then I'd be running the same pace... I didn't have time to clarify cause they started. So I was like 2 or 3 seconds behind anyways! :) I went 8:16 (or a little faster) and 8:33. There are hills in those. The second one wasn't so fun, my legs tightened up a lot and my foot was buggin (ankles fine now, weird). I was actually kind of happy I could do it, I still don't feel great but I think I'm feeling a little better. I tested negative for mono so yay but now I'm really stumped. I'm gonna try getting more sleep and see if that helps.

Then helped out at the race! The good thing about doing the workout here is that now I know what to expect for the course at conference (we're hosting it here in Cedar this year!)
