Warmups, the form mile, then started the run. 7:24 average, one of the miles dropped to 6:47 and 2 of them were 7:07s. Then some strides on the turf once we finished. Afterwards went to the trainers and got rolled out cause I was tight, it hurt so good.

Weights later, then afterward went for 2 miles. I'm not going to Idaho this weekend (that's our first race) but I suppose that's a good thing because I think that means I'll be going to the bigger one in California! So I'm stoked because sea level feels so good :)

Warmups, the form mile, then a little over a mile of warmup. First speed workout! It was hard. We did 2x1 mile with 1 minute recovery, 2x800s with 2 minutes recovery, and 4x400s with 3 minutes recovery. It was really hard for me because in high school recovery was opposite of that with more recovery for the longer speed and shorter recovery for shorter stuff. It was definitely a change! It was on grass, coach measured it out and incorporated a small hill into it, and it actually ended up being long. Each lap was about .01 longer, a little more maybe. Anyway, on the first one I was 3:11 at the half and finished with 6:19 or 6:02 for the mile. Second one I was not prepared for so little recovery so mentally it was tough, mile was 6:31 finished with 6:52. That was rough. 800s were 3:20 and 3:21 for .53, and 400s were 87, 89, 88, 89 for .26ish. Times were slow because of the grass and hill, and I wore my trainers. Then cooled down a mile and took a 15 minute nap in the training room before class.

Well, I must be a freshman again! I slept through practice by accident.. I feel really bad. I left my phone in Kamryn's car, and didn't want to wake her up to go get it, so I thought I'd wake up to Ashley's alarm cause I usually do and just go back to sleep for 15 minutes (cause you know those 15 minutes are really gonna make a difference...haha) but of course I totally slept through it this morning! Ahhh. Anyway, I called coach and he said to just go for a distance run today. So I did 2.5 in the morning at 6:58 average cause I had some time, then went to weights later and did a 10 miler at an easy pace in the evening, 7:59 average.

Today was kind of rough, but I'm still satisfied with how I did. We carpooled up to Brian head again and went on a different road this time, I liked the course cause it was mostly downhill. Warmup was still fast at 7:00, then went right into the 60%. Goal pace was 6:15-6:35. I went 6:19, 6:16, 6:45, 7:02, 7:18. So 6:44 average, bummed that I wasn't in the range. Idk it's like once I hit 2 miles of going fast I just hit a wall. Towards the end I got really bad cramps so that was miserable. Happened at camp too so I'm thinking it's just something to do with the elevation change. For cool down I ran out about .5 back on the road then turned back and ran to Ashley, she was to her mileage and couldn't run anymore so she was walking back. The cramps were so intense that I think I was forgetting to breathe, which wasn't much fun. I normally don't turn early, so I feel bad about it, but at least I kept Ashley company. Coach didn't really communicate where the finish was, I don't think he even knew that so when we got close to the road Josh and  Ishti? had started running back to find us, I guess they got dropped off while coach drove to look over by where we finished, haha then Clinton pulled up in the other van and we piled in and drove to find coach. We wasted a good amount of time trying to find each other, but it was fun I guess :)

Drove to Mesquite, warmups and 2 miles warmup then started the workout. It wasn't bad, 2 sets of 400, 800, 300. It was just really hot and windy. Much stronger wind than I'm used to that's for sure! I hit 74, 2:47, 54 and 74, 2:51, 55. It was mostly the heat that got to me, it was like mid 90s I think. But Coach said UC Riverside next weekend is going to be hot too, so gotta prepare myself for that! A mile cool down.

VA loop + Shriner's run. My legs are kind of tired but otherwise it was a good run.
