Today at the beginning of practice we looked at the 3A rankings for the State Meet this weekend. I'm ranked 5th in the 1600m, 6th in the 3200m and 7th in the 800m! Exciting!

Warmed up and such as usual, then a couple of handoffs with Green for the medley, then did big grass loop and 3x200m repeats. Ran them all in spikes and the last two with the sprinters (which was kind of odd). I don't know my first one's time, but I got 31's on my last two. My calves, esp. my right one, are still really stiff and sore so that wasn't much fun, but the workout was just fast and fun. Then jogged 2 laps cooldown with Judd. And drank a quart of gatorade.

Team warmup, agilities, stretches and handoffs w/Green, then Dogpound AT. Did it a little different today, did about a 2 mile AT run with 1 mile warmup and cooldown (instead of 3 AT between 1/2 mile wu and cd) also, I left my watch at home so I just pushed hard and ran fast, but have no times (though I think I ran at most low 6:00/mi). Was really hot out and that was painful, but I think I pushed it really well in the AT part which felt good. Legs were really tingly at the end and a while after, which was kind of odd.

Ran around to do a couple of errands in my neighborhood as a warmup, then ran this loop around Bloomington hills a couple of times, it was way too hot yet again, I've got that to look forward to this whole summer! Yay. Ran really slow and easy (8:38/mi avg), though I wanted to run fast and angry, since I had a frustrating day. @#$@#%. Getting to be pretty nervous and excited for State!

Went to the Juab HS track to run a bit after riding up to Nephi. 800m warmup, agilities and stretches, some handoffs with Green, then went out on a ten-or-so minute jog around. Ran out in the town a ways, felt pretty good and loose. When I got back, my legs were feeling pretty restless, so I did a couple of fifty meter sprints to get them moving some.

Got up way too early to drive up to Provo from Nephi in time to get warmed up for the 1600m. Warmed up on the track, 3 laps gradually faster, stretched and got ready to race. Race went all right, but not great, no PR, but close and kept my ranking at 5th place. I can't recall much else about the race. Warmed up for the 800m leg of the medley relay too early since they took forever in between the heats of 1A and 2A medleys, but the race went ok-ish. Ran a split of 2:23, got a team PR of 4:16, but we took 4th place after being ranked 3rd. Everybody else on the team really stepped it up and I feel kinda like I let them down (if I had run 2 seconds faster-like the 2:20 I did at Region-we would've gotten 3rd). So that was kind of depressing.

Race: Utah State Championships (3A) (2 Miles) 00:11:36, Place overall: 6

Ran a PR of 11:36 in the 3200m in the morning and kept my ranking of 6th. Felt really good about that race, pushed it really well, I battled this Logan girl most of the race and beat her in the end! Then I sucked in the 800m, well not that bad, but it feels like it, got a 2:23 and placed way crappy. I did pretty well on the first lap, but I just didn't start kicking it in until the 200 and even then I didn't have any heart in it, I felt like I had already given up and that's something I vow to never do again.
