So today there were only 4 of us: me, Bill, Chris, and Natalie. Okay do the math: Bill, Chris, and Natalie are super fast, and I am always toward the back of the group. this is a recipe for a problem, and add no watch to that is just digging a deeper hole. I need a watch. Anyway, we went to the oval and did a speed thing. I did less than the other 3. we started with a warm up (i think it was 3 laps) and then stretched and got started on the rest. I wasn't actually feeling too good, but i just kept going. the workout the others did was 5 1100s? 1000s? something like that. I had to do their pace, but as they went around for a third time I dropped out. Bill told me to. I just stretched and waited for them, which gave me more recovery time (and I was thankful for it). Then we did 11 laps cool down. It was supposed to be a 10 mile run, but for the speed part I didn't do as much as them, so I did the math and i got somewhere in between 8 1/2 and 9 so i just said 8.75 miles for the day.

so today we went from East to sugarhouse. we started a lap around and stopped just before we got to Highland. There was some hill that we ran 12 times up and down it. on the first couple I wasn't feeling it, but then I realized that, "hey, I should be trying my best and pushing myself like I would in speed" so by the like 3rd or 4th one I started to try harder. this is when I really started to not feel good. I would start at the front and then as we ascended the hill I would get tired and slow down. I would breathe all heavy and not feel great and come back down. Bill told me to push up the hill so I tried as hard as I could. towards the end I thought I would throw up or pass out. so I took it easy on the way back. we finished the lap around and headed back. I ran with Olivia for the rest of the way. you know when you are so tired from running that you hit the stage where every little thing seems cool or funny? yeah i'm pretty sure that's where Olivia and i were. we had some good conversations, and Olivia pointed out a huge leaf that seemed really cool at the moment. I'm glad she kept me going. It was around 6 miles.

Today we went down to liberty park. When we got there, we went the long way on the grass to the drinking fountain, then we did fireman 1 lap around. It was a nice and easyish fireman, so I liked it. we went back around on the grass and up to by the fire station and walked up the hill. 5 miles

Today was a race in draper. For a warm-up i think we did a mile. I could tell that this race was gonna be a hard one just running the warm up. It was really windy and had lots of hills. I wasn't feeling too great either. So for the race there were lots of people their (even adults, which I wasn't used to). It was a really tough race. I can't remember my time, but I know it was really bad, but I guess the wind and hills affected everybody. Overall in the females I got 10th, and in my age division (11-15) I got 2nd. I won a pumpkin pie! the first place people got turkeys. I really enjoyed the pie!

1st track thing today. We ran (excuse me, sprinted) a block lap around East. We did squats, lunges, sit-ups, planks, balancing things, all that type of stuff in the Weight room. Then the cross country people went out for the actual run. I ran 20 minutes up Sunnyside and back. We got to about where this is the place heritage park is, up just a little further. So probably I got to 4 miles for the day.

Today we ran to sugarhouse. I tried to stay up with the group. I stayed up with them all the way until we got to sugarhouse. then I started to fall behind. I did a lap around. The faster group went somewhere else and did 10 miles. I didn't want to. I tried to keep up with Annie, Sam and Jesse, but they were going too fast. I was the first one to fall behind, but I could tell Jesse was tired too. She still is amazing, even with her hip. She started to lag off a bit as well, but she was still in front of me (way to go Jesse!) Maggie was up there too. she was going at around my pace maybe a little faster, but she kept me going, even though she was on the other side of the street. (thanks maggie!) then she went off somewhere along the way and so did annie and sam, so when I got back it was just me and Dakota, then Maggie turns up in her car (?????) then Sam and Annie come back and say they went somewhere with lots of hills and all that stuff. Maggie it turned out went home and drove to East. 6 miles.

So today seemed easier at first but then got harder. we ran up to the track and did lap around w/ 50 m butt kicks? and strides (50 m), then benches where we ran up and down the stairs on the bleachers, and started another lap, each varied with butt kicks, lunges, high knees, grapevine, walking on toes, power skip type things, skipping? with a little stutter, and that stuff (all 50 m and strides after for 50 m). Then we went over to the hill with the big K on it and sprinted up it and waked backwards down, turned around and jogged back to the start. we did those 10 times. then we went up to sunnyside and did 2 big laps around and came back. I was tired going up there so I ran slow and I missed a light, so I was with Patrick and Caden at the light. I was gonna run with them but they didn't want to run, so I was by myself. I saw them running later though (good job!). I so wanted to quit and just walk, but I didn't. I probably should've run faster, but I didn't have much energy. I'm just glad I finished. When we got back to East, we did a lap around the field to make it 7.

So today was a track day, so we did the track stuff first. We ran to the track, ran 2 laps around the track, and did some circuits. we did the walk out and back in and twist things, jump squats, strides, lunges up a hill, strides up a hill, and burpies. yep i was not feeling it. My knees were hurting me soooooo bad! I just tried to get through the workout. It felt like I was out of shape, which I guess I was. I didn't run on thursday-sunday. (I never run on sundays so ya.) Sarah Bischoff told me that it could be my quads and that they get weak way fast when you don't run and they hold your knee caps in place or something like that so it probably is that. She said wall sits should help. Bill just told me to take ibuprofen and an ice bath, so I'll see how that goes. I hope I will be okay for footlocker. (Only 2 more days!!! yay!!! I am soooooo excited beyond belief! I plan to get top 30 or better in my race, so we'll see how it goes!) So for the run I ran 20 minutes with Sarah, Abigail, Patrick, and Kevin. It was killer for my knees!! Man I am never gonna do that again. that was stupid of me. :( I just hope that it didn't screw up footlocker too bad. I'll work my hardest the next 2 days to see if that will be enough. I'm mad at myself now. grrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!! whatever I will get 1st place!!!! jk i don't know if that'll be possible. yes it will! no it won't. I'm kinda at war with myself right now. I should definately try though!!! maybe I'll P. R. It seems like it's a tough race though so that's unlikely. I'll just do my best and hope something good happens! ya so I ran up to the track from the school to get my stuff, and that added another 1/2 mile to the 4 miles that Abigail told me we did. i am sooooo excited!!!!!!!!
