Had to go a little earlier than I wanted cause her hoco date is coming earlier than mine. But it was a good run. Even a little chilly I might dare say. It was a nice shakeout chill run and I'm ready for a solid week :) 45 Sat, 23 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 22, 2017 am- only mayc and I ran this morning. good run with good yoga. pm-nebo race! oh I loved it. Best race in weeks. so much fun. Even though it was wet the weather was perfect!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy and I'm ready for more. Can't wait to hear how my good friends do tomorrow. I'm missing them :) love running with my whole heart 20+50 Fri, 22 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 21, 2017 am-good sesh of weights. bench was solid. by far my favorite lift :) pm-sad day cause my friends all left me but it was a good run with a swag group. ran out and back to Washington. Had a group of mayc, Alli, ness, py, Jada, Boston, Caleb, Ethan, and Heather. Good run. Kept a nice pace. It's been fun for me to get to know some people a lot better ;) the team dinner was a party. There are some pretty cool people on our team. Missing my bff's though 15+55 Thu, 21 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 20, 2017 am-good run. weather was nice. Plyos after. pm-5x4 min reps best workout in the past few weeks. Found myself a new group and I was able to help them. That's where I do my best. It was fun to be able to lead and help them. Excited for this weekend. Robert's youd be happy to hear that we got in a nice long cool down :) 20+60 Wed, 20 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 19, 2017 am-weights and run. don't like the crowdedness of the weight room. Missed a few lifts so that's a bummer. Pm-shin was killing today. Couldnt/didn't stay with the girls. Wish I did. Runs are much better with them. 15+50 Tue, 19 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 18, 2017 am-man, I was totally not in it today. I was very distracted the whole time. My mind was racing all over the place so it was hard for me to stay in the pack. We had two sets of tempo and I found myself drifting through my thoughts rather than pushing my legs. It was a weird feeling. I don't think it's ever happened before. The rest of the girls seemed to have a really solid pack and strong group. Trying to find my place, and my why again in running. But you can't be too disappointed with a long run where the weather felt simply wonderful. Love running. Pm-grass run. Shin was kinda feeling crappy. But good run. 80+20 min Mon, 18 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 16, 2017 Went by myself for 30 and then went another 30 with my dad and Alli. Still super tired. (Didn't get to run with the team so that's a bummer) also car wash is today so that should be fun 60 Sat, 16 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 15, 2017 am-killer morning. I'm feeling really tired and sore. We had plyos and yoga. About dies doing plyos. Super tired and sore. pm-Attempt at a 15 min tempo. Everything hurt today. My shin is starting to hurt and that worries me. Plus my butt was super sore. These are all just excuses but it was really dragging me down. it wasnt that great. But it was fine. 20+60 Fri, 15 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 14, 2017 am-weights and plyos. No run due to some sick lightning. Pm-did killer abs before run once again because of lightning. Run was alright. Girls were doing a variety of distances today so that was weird. Got to push the full minutes with some swag girls. Jada and py will never cease to make you laugh. 45 Thu, 14 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 13, 2017 am-good run pm-hurricane invite race. it was a good run. I just want to do so much better and I don't know what to do. Happy for Alli she's a beast. 20+60 Wed, 13 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 12, 2017 am-good sesh of weights pm-shin was hurting that's bad news. worked/stretched good. Pretty solid run but the pack was all over the place. I don't really feel ready for tomorrow. But I'm going to visualize and prepare myself. Should be a good race :) 15+50 Tue, 12 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 11, 2017 Am-best long run of the year. Ask anyone they'd agree. The pack was sooooo solid we had like 15 girls together for the whole 70 min. Hills were alright. Kinda tiring but good. Pyper and Alli brown jumped in and led so that was pretty awesome. We've got some really talented runners. So that's fun. Really good run. Pm-easy grass run. Awe so many laughs today. Robs is skilled in the art of accents. 70+20 Mon, 11 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 09, 2017 am-workout at state. Very solid run for the team as a whole. Coach got on our cases about a lot of things and it really reminded me of what I personally need to do for this team. How we are supposed to push together and fight and pack and awe so much. Even though he was mad it was good because it made us realize things a whole lot more. We were doing our part as athletes to help our team mates and get them where they were supposed to be. So many people were pushing out of the comfort zone to seek together. So proud of all the freshies (and Jada and ness) for digging in and leading the pack. Definitely a confidence boost for so many girls. Plus the state course and weather couldn't be more perfect so that made the run wonderful as well. 60 min Sat, 09 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 08, 2017 am-yoga with figi. Definitely my favorite mornings. pm-alright race. I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong. I try so hard to do well and I mean it was fine but I feel like I have so much more in me. I want to help the team and push the team to do their best. Definitely not what I did. I have every desire in the world to run fast. I love to run. I love my team. I love my coaches. It's the best program in the world. Now I've just gotta figure out how to do what I want to in racing. One day it's gotta click. And that will be one special and spectacular day. 20+50 Fri, 08 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 07, 2017 am-weights. bball girls were in there so it was loud but o was proud to be lifting more than all of them. pm-good run legs are feeling back into things. super stoked for the race. 4x200 really tightened me up at the end. but j did lots of stretching and rolling 15+50 Thu, 07 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 06, 2017 am-nice and moderate ;) haha it was a good run. kinda a struggle towards the end but overall it was a good one. pm-mid distance into green springs. Did a lot of stopping and bathrooming thats not always the greatest but the pace was going good. Legs are feeling beat so I'm going to make sure to roll and stretch really good tonight. Also, striders were hard today. I couldn't run the recovery at I pushed hard on the strides by myself and slowed alot on the recovery. Good day. 20+55 Wed, 06 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 05, 2017 am-nice sesh of lifting. I'm really enjoying lifting :) love the workouts in the mornings. pm-today was really rough. after coming off last week where the majority of the workouts were simply wonderful it was rough to endure today. Here's the thing, I don't know what I did differently last week than what I did for today. I know it's totally a mental battle (even though I was telling myself my legs were tired) I didn't even stay with the pack for one rep. It was hard for me to push and I gave up from the very first one. I'm gonna make sure to get lots of sleep and eat healthier than I have been. Also, I'm gonna make sure to visualize/meditate every night. It's the small things that will help me in the long run. 15+60 Tue, 05 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 04, 2017 am-fun log run trail. we did suicidal tendencies out in santa Clara. It was so pretty I love running the trails. Felt good tired towards the end but overall a great run :) 80 min Mon, 04 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 02, 2017 Ran up at the same place jos ran cause we didn't have time to drive to state. Practically the prettiest place I've ever been. And I want to have it as my backyard when I grow up. The weather was wonderful even at 11. Loved watching jos run :) 45 min Sat, 02 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 01, 2017 am-good run. Feeling good pm-15 min progressive tempo at the dirt mile. SOOOOOO good. I've gained a lot of confidence over these past few days. I was able to fight really strong today. The last minute was rough kinda sad I didn't finish completely with the pack but overall a super great workout where we were able to pack together really strong :) it was a great day. Ready for another strong week. 20+60 Fri, 01 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Aug 31, 2017 Am- nice session of weights. Benched 22.5 on both sides so that's pretty cool. Plus it wasn't even that terrible ;) love weights and feeling strong. Pm-really steamy afternoon. Ran towards Sullivan one of my faves actually. Kept a solid pace with Jess and robs. Felt good to go a little faster. As robs says when you push when you are tired you build confidence. And that's what I need. 15+50 Thu, 31 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 30, 2017 am-late to morning practice so that's a bummer. did majority of run by myself. pm-workout at Bloomington. 4x4 min, 1:30, 2:15 @5k pace. Pretty solid workout from me. Could've been better, haha ;) struggled to stay strong the second half which was something we worked on...seemed that I Sayed for 2 min then died for 2. Other than that it was good. Also, it's kinda a bummer cause like the whole team has colds and I'm finally getting it ;( 20+65 Wed, 30 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 29, 2017 am-morning short run with weights. Solid day of lifting. Maybe gonna add some weight on bench next time. pm-turkey road. man that is one hard hill. Had lots of good convos today. Me and Caroline started talking and it was super good. Love that girl. Also picked it up with robs near the end. Felt super great to finish fast with him. Yet another victory. Life is good :) 15+55 Tue, 29 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 28, 2017 <p>am-solid long run. &nbsp;actually is was super super great. &nbsp;lots of small victories along the way. &nbsp;started strong and didnt die running up sunrise tire like usual. &nbsp;ran with robs and jacey i think on the river trail. &nbsp;it was dark so i dont really remember...haha. &nbsp;the 8x100 meter hills were wonderful. &nbsp;it was a good hill day for me so that was a victory. &nbsp;finished strongish with caroline and jess. &nbsp;that was a good time. &nbsp;struggled to stay up with roberts and jace but it was just fine. &nbsp;it was a dandy way to end the run.&nbsp;</p> <p>pm-20 easy on grass. &nbsp;lots of laughs. &nbsp;it was a good time. &nbsp;just ask jess we laughed a lot.</p> <p>70+20</p> Mon, 28 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 26, 2017 am-warm up w/striders and tempo. Didn't really have they great of a race. I didn't seem to have any energy in my legs. Also, didn't have a very good focus either. But the girls talked and that helped me a lot. 50 min?
