Today we had a team workout scheduled at the track at 2:30. When I got there at 2:30 there was nobody there so I waited 10 minutes. Sarah B showed up, and Elizabeth was there too, and I have work tonight, so the three of us ran 1 mile warmup and 1 mile speed changes together. Sarah and I ran our whole speed thingy timed together. 1 mile at 2 mile pace, 4 400s at 2 mile pace, then 3 sets of 300, 200, 100. My first lap on the mile was 1:20, on pace for an 11:20. I hit 2:41 at the 800. The wind started to pick up, then I was at 4:23 and finished with a 5:46. I ran 1 lap recovery in lane 8, then did 400s with Sarah. More people gradually started to show up and just do the workout. I liked it better this way because the starts aren't crowded and I feel more mentally stable. My first 400 was a 1:23, then my watch died. Sarah said that she watched my finishes on the next two and from her eyes I was around 1:24 and 1:23. We didn't catch my last one, but I didn't feel any faster or slower, so it was probably consistent. We didn't worry about timing our 300s, 200s, and 100s, just open stride. Between each set we did a lap recovery. Then I counted my laps and figured I was at 6.5, so I did 3 grass laps recovery. On the 3rd one all the soccer boys said "Hey Abbie!" Which made me smile :) Then I got a blackberry pineapple smoothie from Red Mango and had a lovely chat with my manager. Today has been a good day.

Feeling super lactarded this week! Tuesday and Wednesday were horrible in general, it hurt so bad to even get out of bed and make it to the bathroom. Today I finally decided to try a run. I ran along 14th east to 17th south to 15th east to Sugarhouse. I stopped at the light and considered turning around and walking home, but when it changed I kept going and ran 1 grass lap. After that lap I ran home the way I took and I'm surprised that I made it home without any crap. (Haha get it? Okay sorry that's disgusting I'll stop.)

Yesterday I went for a 14 mile bike ride because I knew it'd be easier on my tummy. It was kinda windy and hard, but whatever. My bum hurt after. Anyways, today I ran from my house up 13th south to Foothill and I did the VA loop and then ran 2 laps at Sunnyside before heading home along 17th east to 13th south and down. I felt pretty good and averaged a 7:58 so yeah, my best this week.
