AM: 4.5, Dixie High-  Felt good.  We ran to Dixie's football field and did some barefoot. 

PM: 7, Lower field-  10x400 felt pretty good.  Legs have been feeling a bit sore and have been hurting a bit but not to terrible, I'm planning on icing tomorrow since I can't tonight.  We did the 400's in the grass because there were soccer games going on. Did barefoot on the last four.  1:14,  1:11,  1:13,  1:13,  1:11,  1:12,  1:10,  1:09,  1:07,  1:02

AM: 3, AC-  Ran with the hs team and totally dominated the first freshman race Ive participated in. Figured that I'm now a freshman...

PM: 3.5, In&Outers-  Interesting workout, they were like striders on the track.  Eight laps of strider pace on straightaways and slow jog on curves.  Hot outside.

Run-a-Thon,  1.5 with Dyllen. I missed him and Trevor so much.  Great to see them again.

First off, that race was hard.  I think part of it was inexperience, and it was hard to breathe, started way to fast and didnt really know how to pace myself.  But with that and the really high altitude, I think I did rather well for the first race.  I wish we had done a better warm up, I dont think we were quite ready for the race in that regard.  And I almost missed the start.  That could have been bad.  Second on the team, Mike did great.  We both broke the school record for that course by quite a bit.

11, Bloomington Hills-  We were planning on going 8 but ended up going 11. We got lost a few times, mostly my fault, I thought we were on one trail but ended up being on some other trail.

6, around neighbor hood-  didnt go to practice this morning, didnt feel very good, so I slept in.  The extra sleep helped a bunch, feel so much better.  Ran a bit with my mom then extended it to make six. Breathing felt a bit different.

Not my best race. I got 3rd on the team. Rodney and Jake ahead of me but I beat Mike, who won last week. I think I was shot mentally.  Had a hard time keeping myself positive. My acceles was hurting pretty badly throughout most of the race and especially after.  As a team we all stayed packed a lot better than last week.  Im glad we're bonding well and forming good friendships.

AM: 3.5, DHS-  Barefoot, not bad, my legs are rather stiff and sore but nothing too terrible.

PM: 6.5, Turkey Farm- 6x400 Hills, 6x200 Hills alternating. Not the best workout. My legs felt super heavy and tired.  When I got home I iced, stretched and rolled a bit.

7.25, Middleton south loop- My legs are so tired.  Not sure the icing did much last night. I finally started to feel warmed up towards the end of the run.  It was nice to run in familiar areas again though.

AM: 3, DHS-  Ultitmate! So much fun.

PM: 8.5, Harmons-  Had to do it by myself again.  Dang Thursday class. 15x60 sec intervals.  Two Mile warm up and cool down.  Hit every one at 1 min, weird how I always get the same time when we do intervals!  Felt pretty good tonight, aside from legs hurtin again on the cool down.  Probably best day this week, running wise.

4.5, VW- Fun day! Coach told everyone practice was at 6:30 which usually means it's going to be an easy day. So I was rather curious as to why we were having another easy day seeing that we just had one yesterday.  Turns out, our workout is a game of Ultimate while Coach Ross makes pancakes for us. Supa fun. I made the most Megan legit catch of my mortal existance! (My little brag session)  Legs feel pretty tired and heavy still.

12.5, STM- Good run. Felt pretty good, finally. This has been a sluggish week, for the most part.  It took us about just as long to run today as it took us to run two miles less last time we ran the marathon course.  Nice weather, just a good day.  The run didnt seem to last very long.  Lets hope more good days follow.

6.5, Foremaster- We were planning on taking it a bit slower today but someone decided they like to go fast. So it was a little faster than I would have liked to go but it still felt alright.

AM: 3.5, DHS- Barefoot ultimate again. Supa fun but my team got owned.

PM: 8.5, AZ boarder- Met at DHHS and did a tempo run. My legs hurt so bad, I really need to ice, stretch and roll more.  New shoes were awesome though!

6, neighborhood-  Made a route as I went.  Not bad, probably one of the best runs in awhile, although I did happen to step in a pothole in the sidewalk and twisted my ankle.  That was the highlight of my run.  I probably looked great to anyone that saw me nearly land on my face but avoid falling by my amazing hopping and spinning acrobats.

AM: 3, DHS-  nice and easy, barefoot ult.

PM: 9, Trail-  18 x 60 sec. intervals.  Nick and I started at the college and ran to the trail as a warm up where we met with sean to do our workout.  Super hot outside. For about the first half I felt really heavy and tired with a minor side ache.  I had major RAD-G but I couldn't ever tell if it was real RAD-G or Murrey Trevor. Toward the last half I finally was starting to feel warmed up and ready to run fast.  Took an Ice Baath afterward, felt amazing!

Ran a mile with my mom in the evening.

I was a little worried about doing this Fun Run when I only got maybe 1/2 hour of sleep last night. But I wasn't as tired as I thought I would be.   Was only able to get around a mile warm up.  Kept it at around 5:20 pace for most of it.  The whole last half mile of the course is uphill so it has a terrible ending.  Did about a two mile cool down. 

Right after the race I went to practice at Sienna Hills park in Washington. Not many people could make it this morning so it was only Mike, Iel, Lucy, Coach Ross and I.  We ended up doing Dino Tracks, one of my favorites.  I felt pretty good today.  Not terribly sore or tired.  After the run my calves were pretty tight but I stretched and they feel better.

PM: 9, Paper Route- Ran a mile with my mom then went on to do my workout.  Decided to do my Paper Route just to see how long it is.  I was expecting to have to extend it in order to get the whole eight miles in but turns out it is exactly eight miles.  My ankle hurt a bit today, I think that may just be the after effects of when I twisted it.  The worst part of the whole run was the last half mile when I was having bowel issues and there were no relievers close by.  Almost didn't make it home.

AM: 4, DHS/VW-  Not bad, had to do it alone though.  Twisted my ankle once again.

PM: 9, Trail-  6 x Mile Repeats, Not too terrible.  My ankle was hurting a bit toward the beginning and I had huge side aches through most of it.  Times were:  5:15, 5:18, 5:12, 5:21, 5:19, 5:31.   

 I felt unbalanced tonight, I felt that way at the beginning of the Fun Run I did Saturday but I had just thought that was from lack of sleep.  I had a pretty good amount of sleep today so I'm not sure thats it.  It started to go away the farther into the workout we went.

PM: 7.5, Turkey Farm-  7 x 400/200 Hills,  Just Sean and I because we couldn't make it to practice tonight.  I was feeling rather tired and sore, as well as dehydrated.  But other than that, it was pretty good.  Talked a bunch and ended up forgetting to start the next one on time, so some recoveries were a bit long.
