56 minutes today, feeling better. Congestion is almost all gone. Ran by that sign again like yesterday - got up to 16 mph this time! Ka-chow! Out of shape-ness is very much. But soon I'll be fast and furious again! (K2 83.8)

New year? New color! Maybe some goals too. Eventually.

So much out-of-shape-ness! Feeling somewhat sore from the last couple days of running, so today's run was tough. Plus, it's the most miles and minutes I've run since September! Super crazy. (91.8)

Parkway 8 miler with the PV team, some parts felt good, other parts I was definitely suffering from a lack of fitness. Blah. Fun to run with the guys and goof around a bit. (K2 114.3)

Club run with Clyde, Dustin and the Bull. Started off slow, but got going reasonably quick a couple miles in - for me at least. The last couple miles I was feeling so winded and tired, super pathetic.  (K2 120.8)

Last day in sunny SG! Went out and did an easy 6 out on river road. Nothing fancy, just feeling spent from yesterday. Lame, yes. (K2 126.8)

So, last week went super well, I got in over 40 miles and my foot pain has been staying at a constant minimum. This next week, school's starting and with that comes Indoor. Tomorrow I'll talk to Reeder about ramping up my speed training slowly, I'm hoping to be able to race  by the end of the indoor season. Copious amounts of soreness and frustration are certain to be present in the next few weeks, but I'm so ready to be back in racing shape and competing for the best university ever!

Red air day, went to the fieldhouse and did 7.5 miles on the sweatmill. Jessie came and ran on the mill next to me, so we chatted and enjoyed less monotony. (K2 148.5)

Ran around campus and by the dorms for 35 minutes, then ran 2.25 miles on the track and 1.5 on the treadmill. Feeling freakishly sore from weights yesterday. (K2 156.5)

Six miler with Vanessa! Fun to run and chat with her, I miss having her on the team. Took it easy, legs still freakishly sore. Weights after, arms got killed muchly. (K2 162.5)

Went to the fieldhouse and did 8 miles: 2 on the track (7:20 and 7:30), 2 on the treadmill (8:00 and 7:30), 2 on the track(7:50 and 7:50), 2 on the treadmill (7:30 and 7:30). Last bit on the treadmill I did 6:30 pace for a quarter mile, then 6:00 pace for another quarter mile. Felt pathetically out of shape. (K2 170.5)

Slept in, then headed out and actually did what coach assigned the team for the first time in forever. 60 minutes with 2x10 minute pushes at 30 minute effort w/ 5 minute jog recovery between. Ended up with 64 minutes. The  push sections killed me off pretty thoroughly, but I'm so excited to be back running fast! Or at least attempting to do so... (K2 187.8)

Snow. Eew. Did an out-and-back this morning and got drenched and frozen. Slipped much, but didn't fall down! Felt reasonably good, considering the rocky (snowy, whatever) terrain. (K2 195.3)

Hurdle practice at 2 pm (fail), then weights at 3:30. Back to class at 4:30. Tuesdays suck.

First speed workout back with the team! I died. Warmed up 2 miles out on the road with Kailey, then got ready and did the workout. Started off with 1.5 miles at 1:30, 1:45, 1:30, 1:30, 1:45, 1:30 per 400m (9:30 total). Ran with Justine and we hit it right on (killed me dead!). Walked 200m, jogged 200m, then started on our next 1.5 mile at the same pace as before. Finished at exactly the same time as previously (9:29.25), feeling pretty spent. On the last one, we started at the "B" level pace (1:40, 1:50, 1:40, 1:40, 1:50, 1:40). Halfway through the fifth lap, my foot started feeling more sore so I decided to stop and just cool down on the bike to finish off (elliptical and bike for 8 minutes each). Glad to get in a workout finally, just feeling freakishly out of shape!  Iced after. (K2 201.2)

Got up this morning and did 8 miles in the fieldhouse (no snow running for me today). First two miles on the track (7:45, 7:55), 3 miles on the treadmill (8:00x3), then 2 on the track (7:50, 7:40) and finally one more mile on the treadmill at 8:00 pace. (K2 209.2)

After morning classes, headed off to hurdle practice. Apparently I fail at proper hurdle form. Bruised and embarassed myself repeatedly, improving a little but for right now I look pretty handicapped. 

Right after hurdles, went over to weights and did a circuit with the teammates that aren't already in Washington to race this weekend.

Ran around outside in the snow for a few miles, then headed to the fieldhouse and ran two miles on the track and one on the treadmill  to finish it off. Then I did hurdle practice for a while and failed some more. (K2 216.2)

Headed out on a 10-miler in the snow and ice. Gross and long and tiring, but I did it! Winner. (K2 226.2)

Weight lifting at 6:30 am. Eew. Went back to bed after. 

Woo! First full workout back and it went pretty well!  Started off with a 6 minute warmup on my own, then a 10 minute jog out with the team. On the way back, we ran at 30 minute effort, not too bad. Then we did 8x400's together with a 400m (one lap walk, one jog) recovery w/ GP 1:12 - 1:20. Times were 1:15, 1:16, 1:14, 1:13, 1:12, 1:12, 1:13 and 1:13. Ow! Awesome, though my legs are thoroughly thrashed. Coaches say that I might even race the 3k this weekend at Boise if it all works out. :) Cooled down a half mile indoors, then outside for 9 minutes. (F spike 8.6) (K2 232)

Went early to the fieldhouse and did 2 treadmill, 2 track, 2 treadmill and 2 track miles. Whee. My legs hurt so much! I can't handle the soreness. (K2 240)

Hurdle practice at 2, then weights. Legs = death. And my abs are also freakishly sore.

School continues to ruin my life. Wednesdays from now on I have to work out by myself before practice because of my stupid 2:30 EE lab. Blah. So, today I warmed up for 20 minutes, then did a 1000 at 4:10 GP, then 4x800s at 2:52 GP w/200m walk/jog recovery. Times were 4:12, 2:55, 2:51, 2:51, 2:53. Died. Cooled down for another 20 minutes. Coach Reeder told me not to not be depressed by today's workout. Almost. (K2 245) (K spike  10.8)

Went out on a crazy run on the canal trail and Bonneville trail and didn't slip or die on the snow. I felt pretty hardcore for running in snow... on purpose! Win. (K2 254)

First race in almost 5 months! Before the race I was freaking out but it went reasonably well considering. Warmed up a couple miles outside, got race ready and hurried onto the track, started out on the outermost lane but got a good start. First lap was way too fast, went out in 2nd place at a 37s. I was aiming for 41s the whole way so that was not so smart. Next lap I calmed down a little but still I was at about 40s for the next few and at the 1 mile mark I was feeling a bit spent. My effort and thus, my splits dropped to about 42-43s and for the rest of the race, not great. I let a few girls pass me in those middle laps so I ended up pushing to pass on the last lap and only getting one place back.

I'm happy to have my inaugural race out of the way so now I can get back into race mode and kick some butts! Next race I'll do is UW in two weeks. Hoping to get some great training in between now and then and set a new PR! (K2 265.5) (F spike 12.7)
