AM:

Easy 3 around my neighborhood.

PM:

Speed today. 2 grass laps, then asphalt hills. Then did our workout, which was 2x1000s at the track, then up to sunnyside and do 2x800s, then back down to the track, 2x1000s, more asphalt hills. I was supposed to hit 6:00 pace for all of this, so 3:45 for the 1000s and 3:00 for the 800s. I hit the first one in 3:34, then 3:38. Then the 800s were 2:41 and 2:37. Then 1000s were 3:36 and 3:41. I was feeling great, oddly. It didn't seem to me to be too tough of a workout :)

AM:

Was a little late to morning practice so I had to run on my own and try my best to catch up. I just decided to relax a little and not push it too much. VA loop to 13th and back to the track then 2 progressive 300s, then a lap to get to 4.

PM:

Ran to sugarhouse and ran part of the state course seeing as today is the last day we can do it. Then went back to the track and added a lap to get to 7.

2 grass laps warmup, then did some drills. Then we did a 200 to open up stride, then a 400, 200, 200, 400, 200. My times were 37, 76, 36, 35, 74, 36. Then 2 grass laps cool down. You know, I think I've been getting myself down because I am not the top girl on the team like I wanted, but I've just been trying to focus on what I'm doing and not what the other girls are doing and have found that I am doing better. My times are much better than they were last year, it was just that I didn't feel good about them because of where I was placing on the team. But I've realized that as long as I'm trying my best it's all that matters. I'm excited for region now because I know I've done everything I could up until now and I'm going to prepare well for it in the next few days. I'm nervous, but excited! I think the girls can take region this year and it would be awesome if we did!!

We had our service project today, then went to the Jordan river parkway trail after getting lost a few times (don't trust the person without a license to figure out how the freeways work) and did 2 miles then 6 strides and it got us to about 2.5. Region is tomorrow!! :O

Regions!

Got 1.5 warmup in, then went to the line and did strides and such. I felt a little nervous, but in a way wasn't prepared to race.

I started way too fast, for some reason I went out with Millika which was stupid cause I knew she was a lot faster than me. I felt stiff and every step was forced. I didn't feel relaxed. I run better when I'm relaxed and I feel like I'm running smooth. Yeah, not today. I just in general felt awful. Didn't want to tell anyone that in fear of bringing the team down though. The first mile felt fast but probably wasn't, then just died from there. I fell off of the lead pack right before the mile, then just thought to myself that I have 2 miles to catch 2 people. My original plan was to start picking it up with a mile to go so I did. I picked it up after roller coaster and focused on Megan and a Clearfield girl. I passed Megan by the pine tree and tried to catch up to Clearfield, who somehow missed the turn at the top of Miranda and started heading down to the parking lot, so I got in front there, but she probably got an adrenaline burst and passed me back pretty fast. Then Tilda passed me with 800 to go and I tried to match but honestly couldn't get myself to. Up Bessie for the last time I really tried to kick but felt awful and just wanted to be done.

Quite an awful race for me. Just so frustrated right now. I did things differently than I normally do for races, why I just don't know, but at least I know what to do and what not to do. 

Okay enough with the negatives. Positives of the race: THE GIRLS TOOK REGION!!!! Good job team!

Forgot how much uphill JCC is. I felt really tired and averaged 8:36 pace. Going up hit a solid 9:50 pace because I just felt so dead. Man my ankle is really bothering me, can't tell if it's part of my shin problem or from when I twisted my ankle at pipeline. My shin hurt a lot on the downhill.
