AM:

4 miles, VA loop before school

PM:

Ran to Sugarhouse, then did 1600, 1200, 800, 400. We finished every one of them (following state course) at the road by Highlands track. I was supposed to go 6:00 pace so 6:00, 4:30, 3:00, 1:30. I hit 5:53, 4:33, 3:03, 1:23. It was harder than I was expecting, when I heard the workout it seemed like it wouldn't be that bad. It wasn't, but I had to work a bit harder than I anticipated. It was the quarter mile coming from the pond to the road that I had to focus, mostly because I slipped and lost focus going around the pond because of the geese. They were annoying and slowed me down, now I know how the front guys felt when we were doing 1000s a while ago. Ran back along 13th and added to what we thought was 9 but was really 9.5 (I guess we did our math wrong haha)

AM:

Today was the huge late start because of Sophomores taking the Plan test, so Bill, Chris and I went up to pipeline. 8 miles. Felt okay, quads were a bit sore.

PM:

Went to the cemetery, did 2 laps and back to the track. Then added in lane 8 to the 300 and did 2 progressive 300s. I hit them both in 49. That surprised me, I didn't think I could break 50. I guess when I want it I can do it (I was racing Chris the last 100 meters). Went up to Sunnyside, did a lap, went along guardsman to the second crosswalk and back down to the track then added a little to get to 7.

3.5 miles at Steiner on the treadmill

PM:

Went up to Sunnyside, did 2 laps, then 8 barefoot strides, and two more laps back to the track and added grass laps to 6. My left psoas bothered me a bit going up to Sunnyside but halfway through the first lap it warmed up. It usually does it's just annoying. Right IT band is now tighter than my left. Rolled out when I got home.

Our season really flew by...

Warmed up about 2.5 miles, strides at the line.

Started out a little fast, some Clearfield girls went fast next to me and surprised me but I knew they wouldn't hold. Stuck with Millika for a little over a mile, our split was about 6:02-6:03. Someone said to Millika "don't break" or something like that coming down Bessie which shocked me. That was when I realized I never really believed I'd be able to beat her. I wanted to, but never believed I could. I felt great. Then we turned and coming up the apple tree hill my legs started to hurt. Millika gapped me a tiny bit, I closed it on the downhill, but on Miranda she gapped me again and this time I didn't close it. I should have done a speed change or something up the hill, I noticed I was stronger at hills than she was. I just didn't want to hurt. After she gapped me I crashed and burned. Okay it wasn't that drastic but I felt like I was going so slow, she was probably only racing for place so she must've slowed down too. I kept working to try to catch her until about 2 miles which was about where I decided I wasn't going to win and settled for second. I shouldn't have done that. I know if I would have sucked it up and accepted that it was going to hurt I could've had a much better race and possibly beaten her. I didn't want it enough to be honest, I realize now I was fine with second.

Kind of mad at myself for not pushing through the pain like I did at Nebo, and even Park City. I guess there were more people in those races and felt more like a race than region did, but still. Then again I wasn't very confident for it, the hills intimidated me. And they weren't bad so why I don't really know. But now the past is in the past and we've got to look towards State. I'm feeling way more confident towards State than I did for region, which is kind of weird. But I know I've worked hard and I know I'm going to be motivated by it being my last high school cross country race. And I know there will be lots of competition and I won't be top 10 unless I hurt. We've done speed on the course. I'm stronger at hills than I realized and I will be dropping mileage. I've still got a week of training to tune everything up and make sure State is amazing.

I did a mile cool down.
