http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-22-2017.html <p>nice and early with watson. legs felt very fatigued today but no pain, which is a good sign.</p> Sat, 22 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 21, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-21-2017.html <p>welllllll at least im in the 5:30s lol. race seemed fine but i know middle laps could&#39;ve had more grind.&nbsp;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&#39;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&#39;s been so long since i&#39;ve been this far and i probably won&#39;t be able to do it for awhile. so some things learned today, we will give it another go next week.</p> Fri, 21 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 20, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-20-2017.html <p>mile wu then premeet, 80 78. better on pace but i was a&nbsp;bit more tired than i would&#39;ve liked. soleus is a little bit better, just cooled down a mile tho. biked 20min and abs&amp;hips and ice bath&nbsp;</p> Thu, 20 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 19, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-19-2017.html <p>cross trainnnn. did 7x3min rolling hills (3 up 2 down) and those seemed so hard which i guess mean speed did its job. 70min total. also idk why but i&#39;m struggling a little having the trust and confidence for a good race this weekend, any advice would be much appreciated&#128151;</p> Wed, 19 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 18, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-18-2017.html <p>bummer cause i did 2miles and my soleus wasn&#39;t doing any better. tomorrow &nbsp;will be a cross train day. biked 50min with 30min endurance ride and heart rate was about 150. abs&amp;hips&nbsp;</p> Tue, 18 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 17, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-17-2017.html <p>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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;m gonna hurt myself in the process.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 17 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 15, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-15-2017.html <p>am-40min biking with abs and hips&nbsp;</p> <p>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.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 15 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 14, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-14-2017.html <p>morning biked 40min plus abs and hips. later ran 3miles. then did mile wu with watson for 4x800. i was the third leg. got baton when we were in 3rd and us top 3 girls kinda held a pack first lap then mountain view girl surged ahead went with her as much as i could but last 100 was very hard but mentally i gave it a lot and i gave mario the baton in second. split a 2:28 which i was pretty happy about. we finished 2nd with 9:59 which was awesome cause our team goal was under 10:00. shoutout to our team for killin it. cd .5 to finish for the day.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 14 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 13, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-13-2017.html <p>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&#39;t drop off that lap like normal. so yeah really crummy time but still looking on the up side and i&#39;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</p> Thu, 13 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 12, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-12-2017.html <p>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&#39;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&#39;s good to know it gets better, even if it has taken 3 months and i&#39;m still not back to full miles. so a very wonderful realization. finished 20min biking then abs&amp;hips and ice bath.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 12 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 11, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-11-2017.html <p>did 5mile loop with some hills which was mostly good, calves hit a lil on the up but were fine soon enough. also guppy found a snake on the trail which scared me very badly and it wasn&#39;t the smallest one i&#39;ve ever seen...&nbsp;got back and biked 20min then did abs&amp;hips and an ice bath with my good pal mario</p> Tue, 11 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 10, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-10-2017.html <p>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.&nbsp;. 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&amp;hips then ice bath</p> Mon, 10 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 08, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-08-2017.html <p>didn&#39;t wanna push my luck today so took a semi cross train day. did 30min on elliptical and kept my heart rate between 140-160. ran two with dal and my right soleus was flared a little so it was good i kept it minimal. did abs&amp;hips&nbsp;</p> Sat, 08 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 07, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-07-2017.html <p>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&#39;ve liked. being sick didn&#39;t help but my calves didn&#39;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&#39;m getting excited for these next few invites.</p> Fri, 07 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 06, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-06-2017.html <p>10min elliptical then abs&amp;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&#39;t right but i&#39;m hoping tomorrow it&#39;ll hold together even if it just makes it through the race. met the meet director, he&#39;s a cool dude and knew who i was when i said i was from skyridge.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 06 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 05, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-05-2017.html <p>in cali and went to this park place. first mile&nbsp;hurt my calves a lot and i regretted doing all the speed yesterday again. legs slowly warmed up into tho and the last mile i felt ok. good thing is breathing was fine. quite hot out tho. did abs&amp;hips then 10min on the elliptical.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 05 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 04, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-04-2017.html <p>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&nbsp;with 2min rest after the 4 and 3min rest between sets. hit 78 37 79 40 77 37. it shouldn&#39;t have been rough but being sick really made breathing hard and yeah. cd with the guys for 4. did abs&amp;hips. started walking around tho and feeling a bit of sharp pain between my soleus and shins so i&#39;m starting to question whether racing this weekend is a good idea.</p> Tue, 04 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 03, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-03-2017.html <p>abs&amp;hips then 23min biking. ran 4 with gups and felt pretty decent except it was a little hard to breathe cause i&#39;m sick :/ pretty weather tho and so glad it&#39;s spring break&nbsp;</p> Mon, 03 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 01, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-01-2017.html <p>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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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.</p> Sat, 01 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 31, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-31-2017.html <p>wasn&#39;t feeling the absolute greatest but can&#39;t complain since i&#39;ve been doing better. did 3mile loop then premeet. 36 34. getting pretty pumped for tomorrow. biked 25min with 15min endurance ride then abs&amp;hips and ice bath. shoutout to parker for not running 2miles today&nbsp;</p> Fri, 31 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 30, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-30-2017.html <p>man another really good day, i just love the gals. also no pain. did 30min biking with 20min endurance ride. abs&amp;hips and ice bath&nbsp;</p> Thu, 30 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 29, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-29-2017.html <p>4 painfree miles by im flash with mario and the crew made for a great day! abs&amp;hips and ice bath and stretches and 30min biking with 20min endurance ride, heart rate 130-140</p> Wed, 29 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 28, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-28-2017.html <p>did 2mile wu then workout was 9 reps, goal 800 pace for 300m (54s) then added 2sec cause of wind (56s) and you went as many 300s staying on pace with 2sec buffer (56-58)&nbsp;jamies&nbsp;plan for me was just 5 reps to be careful to avoid last weeks problem. hit 56 57 58, a little tightness on the third one so dropped to 200s for the last two reps, 38 37. 5 reps got me pretty bad but went in and finished on the bikes and did 5x60sec on very hard and 60sec rest. was only supposed to do 4 but did an extra cause i was kinda mad at myself for not doing a 300 the 4th rep cause i know i&#39;m being careful but i don&#39;t think one more would&#39;ve killed me (although who knows, last week i did just that) so yeah a little mentally messed up but still gave much effort on the bikes and cooled down for a total of 40min biking.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 27, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-27-2017.html <p>70min biking with 30min&nbsp;endurance ride. abs&nbsp;</p> Mon, 27 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 25, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-25-2017.html <p>what an adventure today lol. biked 45min through the rain with mario until my bike got a flat then watson came and picked me up. went to the clubhouse and did 30 more min to make up for yesterday&#39;s lack of miles. threw in a 10min hill climb in the middle but mostly recovery. thought of something semi profound today. im biking cause i love running. sometimes we do things we don&#39;t want for the things we love. take it as you will, it&#39;s kinda giving me more positive vibes and just so hoping i&#39;m racing next week, without problems even if it means more time on the bikes and less miles.</p> Sat, 25 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 24, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-24-2017.html <p>can&#39;t even count today as a race. did wu then got out. first lap was fine but 600 in i felt my right calf start to tighten. i was on pace first 800 but i gave so much to hold on but finishing was a struggle. sat down after and iced and shoutout to zack cause i talked to him and it kinda calmed me down and also he killed it in the 3200. gonna try to figure this out i guess. watched everyone else and also talked to the one and only ryan raff, even gave him a pretty stellar quote. quite the day</p> Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 23, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-23-2017.html <p>oh gosh it was so cold today but hey taking the last few days as crosstrain made a huge difference in how i felt today which was AMAZING. premeet in 80 and 79. wind made it rough but powered through. no pain whatsoever which makes for like the best bday gift ever so yeah. shoutout to the hinckley&#39;s cause they got their mission calls!!!</p> Thu, 23 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 22, 2017 http://gan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-22-2017.html <p>did abs&amp;hips. .5 then hurt so went and biked 75min with 30min endurance ride
