Half mile track warm up. For speed workout we did 2 miles warm up and 1 mile of speed changes. My calves are really tight and my breathing is very dry, I need to drink more water and eat less junk food. I put on my Saucony flats and did 6 400s with the awesome distance runners. Then as the others continued to do 6 more 400s, I did a mile cool down to be at an even 6 today. I really need to take an ice bath...

Today we were being filmed by the news, featuring East High Track and Field. It'll be on KUTV at 6:00 tonight. We did our 2 laps warm up, stretching, and dynamics before breaking into groups. Distance then ran to Liberty park for 1 lap of firemen, and Bill split it Girls and Boys, and we got back to the drinking fountain at about the same time, although had the boys not been sprinting at the very end we would've beaten them by far. Then we ran back up to the track for 2 progressive 300s and practicing with batons. The first 300 I was supposed to lead, and the wind in that first hundred was TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!! For the next one, I got to call out "GO" when the person reached the yellow arrows, so I got to start last and draft. Then we practiced for our Medley Relay tomorrow at the practice meet, and I'm doing a 200. 4 Distance runners in a Medley...

When we got to the meet, we did half a mile warm up as a whole team and some stretching. Then I did another half mile when it got close to the 300M Hurdles, and then I did some hurdle drills with the other girls. I did alright, considering I didn't want to do them again this year. But I guess I'm still doing them... The event right after the 300 Hurdles was the 800, so I didn't bother to put my trainers back on, I just did some strides with the other 800 runners and started. My first lap felt great, so my second lap I really pushed. My goal was to be one of the top 800 runners, so being the 5th across the line felt great. :)

The event immediately after the 800 was the Medley. 3 events in a row? Yep, that's me. I'm not a sprinter, yet somehow I was one of the 200 runners... Amanda's hand off to me was the best one we've ever done! Yeah! My 200 felt awful, but I pushed hard through it, and my hand off to Natalie...Well I just felt like I hadn't done it too great, but she got the baton, so it's all good. Natalie brought us up from 3rd to 2nd, and Susannah was getting us from 2nd to 1st, but she says that her kick isn't too great...So we were 2nd, which is really good considering that I AM NOT A SPRINTER.

Thinking we were done, Amanda and I opened a box of doughnuts. Good thing Bill caught us at bite number 2, because he wanted us to do the 4x4 relay. So Amanda, Sarah, Angela, and I formed a team and practiced hand offs. I was our starting leg, and I had us in an okay spot when I passed the baton to Angela. She helped us keep that good spot, and handed it to Sarah, who also stayed strong. Then she gave it to Amanda, who finished us off excellently! :) Good job girls!

Finally, I declared this, "I have done 4 events today, now I am going to go eat food!" It was a good meet, better than last year, when the meet was over spring break and nobody knew about it so Susannah, Bre, and I were the only athletes there...Yes, the only three.

Rainy day, so we met in the commons for track. Matheson never said anything about running 2 vertical laps, he just told RJ, Sarah, and I to lead the stretches. After that we went to the hallway for dynamic drills and such. Then Tolbert told everybody to go to the weight room, except for the ones who had received a text from Bill for a workout, so Tolbert got rid of us. I ran with Sarah, RJ, Taylor, and Chester up to Sunnyside park, where we met up with Amanda. We did a mile there for a warm up, then a ladder run around the field, 4 minutes on, 2 minutes off, 3 on, 2 off, 2 on, 1 off, 1 on, 1 off, then a mile lap around the park, then Taylor and I took the freshmen back down to the school to finish off at 5 miles. It was wet, rainy, and now there is snow all around the neighborhood. Oh joy.
