The original plan was that I was going run from mile 11 back to mile 9 by myself on the Half-Marathon course, and run from 9 to the end of the half-Marathon with my dad. This would get me a total of 6 miles. Well the race started late and that really screwed things up. I ran from mile 11 to mile 9 with Mike Schram. He got tired of waiting at mile 9, and later so did I so I ran to the mile 8 marker and Mike was there too. We waited a while for any runners to come by. Clyde, Holt, were the first to run by. A little later Dustin Ence ran by, then a little later Ryan Newman. Finally my dad came running to the 8 mile marker. I took off with him and Mike stayed to wait for his wife. So I had already ran 3 miles before I met up with my dad to run the last 5.

2 mile run with Mike to marker 9: 14.35

1 mile run from marker 9 to 8: 7.20

It was a really good workout and we ran back to our truck which was 2 miles away from the finish line. So I got 10 miles in.

Morning Practice-

Ran from my house to the high school for an extra mile, then ran with RJ to Arctic Circle.

Afternoon Practice-

We did Anarobic Thresholds today for practice. I was so tired before we even started, I think this is the sorest I have been all year. I ran the warm-up with Jeff and ran most of the hard middle part with Jeff as well. I should have pushed harder in the middle but I was so tired. My middle time was 12.43, after the middle part I took a little break and got cooled down with ice and water. Ran with Fre on the way back to the high school.

Ran a DI loop warmup with Jeff mostly. Got back and had to run 4 1200's. I was already WAY sore before we even started the first 1200. I should have pushed harder on each one but I was too sore. Ran a 1200 cool down after the 1200s.

Easy 3 this morning, RJ saw me so thats proof that I ran it.

3 mile repeats after school today. I was already having stomach problems during school and I knew it would carry over into practice. I didn't prepare well so I didn't run well, its as simple as that. Goold past out right before our 3rd repeat! It was pretty freaky! An ambulance came and everything.

.9 repeats:

1. 5.33

2. 5.45

It wasn't rainy or this year but it was still fun. I really like the Murray course. Its hard to move up with so many people and obstacles in the way. I ran into a parked car, not very hard though. I should have pushed harder. I finished right behind WILLY.

This was the weirdest race I have ran all season. There were parts were I was having a way fast race and others where I was dead. I didn't know what the course was at all! All of our boys teams did real well, its very exciting!

I thought I was finishing the race when I really wasn't. so I started kicking it to the finish line then I saw that I had a big loop left and I died. Everyone that I passed up during my kick to the not finish passed me back up. Later I go pissed and passed up a lot of people and finished strong. I think if i didn't pick up it so much on the wrong loop I would have ran about a 19.50 min race, because I would have paced myself better and I wouldn't have died. I am WAY excited for my next race and to be running with such a close JV team. My dad said that there was a 17 second spread between are top 8 JV runners. I know that I will a part of that next race.

TODAY WAS MY BIRTHDAY!

I ran to the school in the morning, and ran close behind Zac for the 3 miler acrtic cirlce run. I pushed really hard pretty much the whole time. Run time: 27.14

Afternoon Run- Pyramid Day, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1000, 800, 600. I wasn't feeling good at all even when we did are 2 mile warm up. I was feeling sick to my stomach and my tendon was hurting bad. For the first part of the pyramid I let pain enter my mind too much, for the last couple I got mad and kicked it. Holt talked to me about certain things and now I am really focused on what I need to do.

600: 2.08, 800: 3.03, 1000: 3.33, 1200: 5.12, 1000: 3.14, 800: 2.45, 600: 2.03

Thanks to all the XC runners who came to my surprise party: RJ, Steve O, Monty, FRE, Zac, Ethan, Ruth, and Amanda.

It was a crazy hilly race but seemed short by alittle bit. I ran a lot better today than I have in the last couple of races. It was cool that I could run this well with no stretching before and being sore from the weeks workouts. WE took 1st and Trevor Thompson, Kory Kimzey, Eric Goold and Z all finished in the top 10.

I don't know what was up with me, I felt like I was pushing hard the whole time. I guess I was still tired from the weeks earlier workouts. I didn't start out very fast at all, and I really pushed for the last mile. My arch was hurting and it was annoying, I massaged it right after I finished.

1st mile: 6.19

2nd mile: 6.20

I need to start our faster!

We were supposed to run 8 but my calf was hurting and I was feeling sick. So about 3.5 miles into it I ran into some bushes and went to the bathroom. I felt better after, then since I was so behind everyone and I was still hurting I followed some deer tracks and swam in the river for a little bit. Lets hope my calf gets better.

I ran faster last year for this race, I suck! I would like to say that my calf had a lot to do with my slow time, but that wouldn't be true. I just don't know whats wrong with me! It's so cool to see how fast and close together both our boys teams are. I just wish I could play a bigger part in it.
