bummer cause meet took so long so missed both sessions of general conference :/ but on the other hand got to watch some sick races. warmed up a mile but meet took so long warmed up .25 like an hour later. did like 5 strides then finally got to line and was pretty worried i'd have to lead mostly cause i was fastest seed in the heat but another girl took it out hard so i stuck behind her. at 200 in jamie said that pacing was good so i didn't need to pass her, kept with her til 200 left she gained a little but i sped up at the end and got close to catching but got a pr! thankful for that girl. huge shoutout to mario and kobe for qualifying for state in the 800 holy cow they're my heroes! cd 2miles with mario which was awesome cause i cooled down with a future state champ. got back and listened to conference while biking 30min.

10min biking then a mile, drove down to lehi for the workout cause our track is off limits this week. workout was 3x400-200 @mile pace with 2min rest after the 4 and 3min rest between sets. hit 78 37 79 40 77 37. it shouldn't have been rough but being sick really made breathing hard and yeah. cd with the guys for 4. did abs&hips. started walking around tho and feeling a bit of sharp pain between my soleus and shins so i'm starting to question whether racing this weekend is a good idea.

10min elliptical then abs&hips. headed over to south pasadena high school to do premeet. mile wu then two 400s in 75 and 82. very inconsistent and neither on pace but i tried i suppose. cd my soleus just wasn't right but i'm hoping tomorrow it'll hold together even if it just makes it through the race. met the meet director, he's a cool dude and knew who i was when i said i was from skyridge.

mile wu then got to the line. stuck towards the back yet the first lap was still a 74 smh. did a surge as planned and had a strongish kick so stuck to my goals however laps were a bit slower than i would've liked. being sick didn't help but my calves didn't hurt which is such a big step! went to arcadia and watched so many sick races and shoutout to dallin and zack for killin it!! cooled down with guppy and collin and towards the end my calves were pretty done with me but they lasted which was good. ok day and i'm getting excited for these next few invites.

what a fantastic day! wu to the gulley then 6x60sec up the hill. fought hard and stayed mentally in it the whole time, and averaged 5:45 mile pace which was exciting. . afterwards i felt like death but was so happy at the same time! cd to 5 (finally! #almostthere) then biked 20min, very slowly due to dead legs. did abs&hips then ice bath

did premeet today and hit 76 79. idk why but struggling pacing those, i wanted 80-81 smh. oh well finished miles and idk what's made the difference these last few weeks but i had forgotten what running without pain had felt like but now it makes me so grateful when i feel normal and it's good to know it gets better, even if it has taken 3 months and i'm still not back to full miles. so a very wonderful realization. finished 20min biking then abs&hips and ice bath.

mile wu then race, started more conserved hit 81 then made a couple moves second lap, 84 third lap did a huge surge to catch lead girl 85, crossed the line knowing i would have to hit 80 to be where i wanted which was totally possible, i hits 80s so much but something bad happened to me mentally that lap and hit a 90 which is TERRIBLE. but all things considered all i need to fix is that last lap and we are in good shape and hit my goal of a strong third lap cause i didn't drop off that lap like normal. so yeah really crummy time but still looking on the up side and i'll thrash the 800 tomorrow (well 4x800 i suppose). cooled down 3miles (yay for still being at 5 and not hurt). came home biked 40min with 30min endurance ride then abs and did some harder ab things today cause i know that fourth lap is gonna come if i put in the extra work but not if i just do the minimum. so good things WILL come and im ready!!! and yeah hips. shoutout to everyone who is reading this overly long blog post about me giving myself motivation. you guys are true pals

pm-good ol recovery with watson and mario. halfway through the run my calves started hurting pretty bad but took a couple min to stretch and that seemed to do the trick cause they felt pretty great after that.

welp. on the wu my soles was kinda bothersome but i knew it could push through a workout. workout was 3 sets of 4x400 at current mile pace then about two seconds faster each rep. i hit 81 80 82 81 82 and the fifth one i wasn't focusing on pacing anymore than judging whether i should be doing the workout or not, so talked to jamie on rest and made the decision not to push it. i wanted to keep going but i know it wouldn't help. went and did two sets on the bike of 1min on and 2min off 4 times with 4min rest in between. push myself very hard and had to lay on the grass after so i didn't throw up on the bike. finished to 45min of biking. i feel like there is so much i wanna give in speed but then it keeps coming down to being careful which i hate. i just wanna do full speed and not feel like i'm gonna hurt myself in the process.

welllllll at least im in the 5:30s lol. race seemed fine but i know middle laps could've had more grind. last lap i mentally was kicking it in and my legs would not move for the life of me. but i did have a fight which was good. i had to lay on the grass for awhile cause my legs hurt and my stomach and my head. after awhile got up but didn't feel too good. iced my leg while taking a little nap and woke up feeling better. i figured out my problem was is that the last time i had eaten was 11:30ish and i raced at 5. so basically i feeling really dumb for throwing away my race by a small mistake. cooled down with dalpal 3miles. later watson had some miles and the temptation was too strong and i went over but hey it's been so long since i've been this far and i probably won't be able to do it for awhile. so some things learned today, we will give it another go next week.

biked 10min and did abs and hips before practice. did mile wu then jamie said i could do 6 of the 12 reps. hit 5x300s and barely didn't make the time so did a 200 for my last one. felt good and stay mentally positive. went to the bikes for the other 6 and it was medium hard resistance and you sped up for 60sec then 90sec rest. the rest was hard cause you didn't want to move and the resistance was so high. pushed my self good and visualed the track and i feel good about the work i did. finished for a total of 50min biking then did a mile cd running and my legs felt very tired which meant some good things happened today.

pm-interesting race. definitely went out too slow but actually passed lots second and third lap which was good. still need to work on my kick tho. time is getting better but honestly that race didn't feel super hard which means i definitely needed to race faster. oh well. can't be too sad that it's going better and i know i can race faster! cool down consisted of splashing mud in mouths, burger king, and crazy girls so that was a win (; super solid time at the meet
