           Speed today. Since I'm not racing at BYU, I'm going to be working really hard this week. 2 laps, stretching, drills. 3 laps warmup, 3 laps speed changes. Then changed shoes, and some people had to take a potty break so we ran a lap so we didn't lose our warmup. Then we did a 200, jog 200, an 800, a 400, and 3 200s. we did 2 sets, with a lap and a half in between. All of my 200s were within 36-38. I was supposed to hit 41s. whoops. my first 800 was a 2:48 I think, and that first 400 was an 85ish. The 2nd 800 I went out kinda fast and got like a 2:58-3:00 maybe? Then that 2nd 400 I crashed and got a 91.

           Then did 8 Barefoot strides on the football field.

          I was being slow with my shoes, so the others left me. Tried to catch up, caught up to Abigail and Kiley. They were going at a nice and easy pace, and I was tired, so I stayed with them. 3 miles cool down, but we went really slow. :)

Normal warmup of 2 laps and stretching and drills. Then we split into our groups. I was expecting hills, and then Bill said "We're going to go for a run..." and I was like NO HILLS!!!! (Bill) "...in the Avenues." Great. Just great. The hill run.

So we went down to 13th and took that all the way to South Temple, and this time we started at U St. We stride up the hill, and then turn left downhill for recovery until the next road, T st. stride up, recover on the downhill, turn and stride up S st...and so on until we hit 11th Ave. I think that made it 10 hill strides. The hills started out not too bad, and they gradually got steeper. The last one was the steepest. Make sense?

Yeah, it was super hard. I tried to stick with the group along 13th, and succeeded. Then On the strides I tried to stick with the group again. I was up with Natalie for most of it. Then the hills  got super steep, and I got more tired, and then I fell back. I just tried to finish, but even that was a challenge. My legs felt like they were going to fall off. They didn't hurt, they just felt so unstable and shaky. When I got to 11th, they all had waited for me, and I got a bit of recovery time.

Then we did the shriners run back to the track. Then when we got back we did 2 300s. I was dead. I couldn't get my legs to move very fast, but I guess that's a sign that I was working!!!!

Today was the tri-meet at east. We did a lap warmup, then stretched. I did like a half mile of warmup, and then I had to go over to the line so that I wouldn't miss my race. How's that for a crappy warmup?

Put my spikes on and ran to the line. First lap I took the lead, and then just tried to keep it. I was like an 80-81, where I wanted it. Then I slowed down a lot 2nd lap. 3rd lap I tried to push hard because I knew that it was the hardest lap. Then on the last lap I got to 200 left, and the girl was right on my shoulder (like she was the entire race) and I could tell she was kicking, and I tried to go with her, but then she passed me with 100 left, and I lost it mentally. Then it was a mental battle to start kicking, but eventually I did, but finished 4 seconds behind her. I hope that doesn't happen at region. But then again, I had a crappy warmup, and felt crappy the entire day, and I am getting sick and my throat was killing me withmy mouth all dry. Hopefully i will be better by then, but I WILL qualify for state no matter what.

Then I did another 1/2 mile warmup/cool down, when i had to go over to the line. AGAIN. This time for the 800. Well, at least I have learned my lesson. The first lap I was in 3rd. I really felt crappy, and it was like I couldn't get myself to move. like yesterday. But I just tried to push through it. 2nd lap a cyprus girl passed me with like 200 left. I got really angry and wasn't going to lose it like in the 1600. I started kicking with 100 left, really swung my arms, and passed her!!! Got 3rd. Ha then we were talking afterward and she found out that I was a freshman and started frreaking out. haha.

Then I just tried to keep moving because I had to do the 800 in the medley...we were the only girls team so they combined us. Great. We got dead last by far. But first for the girls!!! Ha. I really felt the lactic settling in. I tried to push through it, but it was really hard with no one there to push me. I really wanted to quit that first lap, but I kept going.

I was supposed to do the 3200, but I really wasn't feeling good. I am definitely getting sick, and I'm not too happy about it. I just hope it clears up for region.

Did a 3 mile loop when I got home for cool down.

I did 6.75 miles around my neighborhood, and went to sugarhouse park for a lot of it. Congradulations to Natalie who ran at BYU today in the 3200m and broke the state record with a 10:22!!!! Awesome job!!!

I did a 7 mile loop around my neighborhood. Went to sugarhouse for a bit of it. It was a little bit chilly but otherwise pretty nice.
