Boy oh boy did my stomach feel awful today. Especially during the run. Played a little tennis before to loosen up the calves because they were pretty sore, but that got better as I ran. The stomach got way worse though. I still feel like trash. Did some hurdle flexibility stuff after.

Mile warmup I had this weird tightness on my right leg, it might have been a tendon, but I was able to ignore it later on. We did the long road home again today, I thought it would be pointless and just sprinting half laps but it was difficult. And you better bet I went ham, Eugene 2.0 was born last Saturday during those 800's. Workout went run a lap, run up and down all the bleachers, two laps, 50 V-ups, three laps, 50 squat jumps, four laps, push ups up the bleachers, three laps, 50 burpees, two laps, 50 crunches, one lap. I lapped everyone at least twice in it which probably isn't too big of an accomplishment but I'll take what I can get. Legs were hammered by the end, but I was able to bust out a 73 last lap which I was proud of. S/O to Mason for running a 28 second last 200. Small cooldown with Mason, Christian, Austin, and Jordan. Man we're awful people. Good thing we're hilarious though. Longer barefoot cooldown and strides on the turf alone. In other news I got the highest scores on my tests today in my lowkey AP physics and AP Bio class.

Premeet, EZPZ. Neighborhood with Christian, Mason, and Austin. I ran two 400's after. The first one I hit the first 200 in 38, sped up a bit and finished controlled in 71. Next one these girls started 100m ahead of me, and I went in to chase mode. Caught them and ran either a 64 or 65, I can't remember. Both felt good. I'm running the 3200 and anchoring relays tomorrow. My goal in the 3200 is run a slow first mile, like 5:40, and then kick in a sub five second mile.

Today was real great. Bus was super Jammed and I got squished. I got off and it was way hot, plus the track here is black so that wasn't fun. Also the track doesn't have a lot of rubber and your spikes didn't stick in. But oh well. Two laps when we got there then warm up later. When I wasn't running I made sure to stay in the shade. We line up and gun goes off. We bunched up guys and gals, it was a small meet. I didn't want to go out fast but I knew after a couple seconds I was gonna lead it. After a lap these two Union kids breathing rather raggedly cam up on me, and I sped up just a tiny bit. At about 650m in I couldn't hear their breathing anymore. I think I hit the 1200 around 4:1x. I started lapping people around here, so I swung into the second lane and picked up my pace. People wouldn't get into the other lane to let me pass which was annoying. 1600 at around 5:35. When I hit lap 5 I sped up quite a bit, I think I hit a 73. I kept an alright pace the next lap, then died a bit. With a lap to go coach yells "give me a 70!" But I didn't really have any motivation. Running on unions track isn't a party haha. Good closing speed for no competition. Anyway I won by almost two minutes. Cooldown, then chilled until the medley. I got the baton with the B team right behind, Union on their tail. My legs felt crappy but I tried to tough it out. Not sure what the time was but I got a 100m lead on the B team anchor, so that was good. Anchored the 4x400 and man it was pretty great. I went out quick and kept it. We won by about 200m haha. I ran a 57, it wasn't amazing but coach said it was the fastest split of anyone by three seconds! Today was good. More of a workout than anything. Gonna be a limit approaching 10 as x approaches infinity on Saturday in the 3200. Yeah I took AB last year.

Cooldown down Aggie once we got home

Good day today. Was a bit sore waking up but all good. Rolled out a bit throughout the day. I've brought my roller to school everyday this week and it's been nice. Also I've ate basically the same thing for breakfast/lunch everyday. Half a cin/raisin bagel w/ jam, small fruit smoothie, some cereal. I don't have a 1st hour so I eat this over an hour or two. For lunch I eat ham on pita, an apple or grapes, and some wheat thins. I've been feeling good lately so I'll keep this diet up. Anyway warmup, then some speed which surprised me. Did an 800, ran right beside Christian the entire time, hit 73's for 2:27. Wasn't really winded. Lap recovery while the girls ran. 3x400(walking lap in between). I wanted to hit 72's but Mason was going sub 60 on all his basically so I got a little excited. Still tried to hold back though. 65, 67, 64. I ran the 67 alone, I started early bc Coach was busy. Last one I hit the 200 at maybe 33, then kicked it in just a bit to catch Christian. Excited for Saturday! 3200's first, so it won't be too hot, and Piercen Maez from Stansbury is in it with a seed time of 10:05. We're the only three under 11, the next fastest seed time is a high 11, so it's probs gonna be a three man pack. Goal is to hang with for 5 laps despite hurting, then just go for it with three laps left, take the lead, and hopefully hold it until the end. Neighborhood cooldown. Iced after

Today was sort of stressful. I had a big application to turn in to get a paid internship over the summer in the neurobiology clinic @ USU, and I couldn't get my transcripts, but I got them and my hopeful future boss seemed to like me a lot. Warmup, Neighborhood run, very easy. Christian and I did solo 400's after, I hit 72-73 and he hit 74-75 so tomorrow should be good stuff. I'm fairly excited. My top of my foot hurt, coach said ice it so I did. I think I tied my shoes too tightly. Wish me luck tomorrow mon amies(et mon freres).

Tough day. I got to the line and it was pretty windy. I was ranked fourth in the race with my 10:55. Rankings were Piercen, Christian, Hawk, Me, Stansbury kid, Paul. Piercen wanted to go sub 10 today so Christian and I though to hang on with him. I got out pretty well, hit the first lap at 74. I'm third at this point behind Piercen and Paul B. 800 at 2:31. At 1000m I passed Paul on the curve and Hawk came with me and passed me at the same time. I hung with him for a while and we hit the 1600 at about 5:07. Hawk had a crazy kick here and I got dropped. Christian passed me in the back stretch of that lap and took off, I spent the rest of the second mile in "no mans land". I glanced back with maybe a lap and a half to go and knew that the top four were pretty much determined. With a lap to go Henderson and Hill are screaming at me, I remember hearing "9:17" so I kicked alright, The other three were pretty far ahead so I had no motivation. S/O to Christian for catching Piercen. Hawk won it in 10:06 and Christian ran 10:16, barely beating Piercen's  10:18, so it was one of the deepest 3200's ran on our track since Ben Saarel and Luke Puskedra were in our region. And since the track was rebuilt in 2012 this might have very well been the most legendary 3200 ran on the Uintah track, which still wasn't too crazy. Prom's today so I went on my day date after a cooldown with Paul, he did well and got 7th place with a 10:55. We went and ate at Quiznos(I didn't eat, but everyone else did) and I left to go to run the 1600. I was sure I missed it but I had quite a while. I was in the fast heat again. I got pushed back to like 9th first lap but then moved up a little throughout, I wasn't going too hard, I only wanted a medal, which I got. My legs=spaghetti on the home stretch, I was stumbling pretty bad. My dad had me at 4:55. I later anchored the B medley, aka Underclassmen feat. me. I got the baton in 5th, moved up well and got second, but Christian had probs 100m on me when I started. 3rd place was like 5 seconds behind me so I feel good about it. Cooldown. Good PR today, but I still got a whole lotta room to improve. Still, I dropped a 20 second PR in the 3200 on Wednesday, ran some solid repeats on Thursday, then dropped another 20 second PR in the 3200 today. Coolio. Prom was lit AF
