addi's running :) Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Sat, 22 Jul 2017 10:36:39 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Jul 22, 2017 Good run today. Met with jacey, ness, and Jess. We ran foremaster and I actually didn't die on the hill. I think that in getting better at running hills so that's good :) feeling pretty good! 70 min Sat, 22 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 21, 2017 Run at Vernon worthen. Kinda a rough run. Felt really tired and not sore but I could feel the workout in my legs. It was nice to talk to some girls that I don't always talk to. Striders were wonderful. 50 min Fri, 21 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 20, 2017 Man today was a little rough. We had intervals at different paces. Just at the elementary school on the grass. It was pretty good and I felt like I was strong though it all I just really struggled to recover so each time I kept getting further behind. Talked to Roberts and got a lot of good insights and such. Such a great coach. Very helpful. I'm going to keep working hard to become the best me there is. I'm going to focus and fight so I can do my best and help my team do our best. This year is going to require the hardest amount of work but in the end I know it will be all worth it. If we keep working hard and believing in the process. We will achieve great things. 60 min Thu, 20 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 19, 2017 Today was a struggle. I keep feeling like I am getting better at staying in the pack and then there are days like this. It wasn't horrific yet I kept finding myself falling off of the pack. I had a strong finish so I was happy with that. Glad to have robs back with the team 50 min Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 18, 2017 Nice run today. So tired from yesterday. Half on the road half on grass. Love grass runs 35 min Tue, 18 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 17, 2017 Man ever since AF posted that video about their "grinder" my dad has been endlessly telling me that we need to find ourselves one to run every week. Well, let me tell ya. Coach found us a grinder. It is a freaking beast. And I freaking died. In some ways it was a very good learning experience cause I had never run it before. But I wasn't really driving like I felt I needed to. Especially the downhill could have been much better. Kinda just chilled. Next week will be much better. Both up and down. Felt the run from Saturday I think too. But no excuses I'm going to drive everyday. So proud of my teammates for absolutely killing it. They are such beasts. Plus Gracie. She drove up the whole hill and finished the whole loop. Big things are ahead of her. Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 15, 2017 Run was so good today! We met at the high school and there was so many girls. Best group for a Saturday run in a long time. We did the foremaster loop. Fast finish with Roberts cause we had to add on alot. Such a great strong run. 70 min Sat, 15 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 14, 2017 Today's run was pretty grand. Nice group of girls. Legs were feeling pretty tired but I pushed up the hills. Felt nice. Also striders are wonderful. 50 min Fri, 14 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 13, 2017 tempo Thursday. Also thoughtful Thursday. Coach holt did an awesome visualization exercise and it helped me get in the right mindset. Tempo was really good. I'm going to focus on the positives cause there were alot of them. I stayed with the team for like 20 min then cut and finished for a few. I'm so grateful for teammates and coaches who help and support me in my running. I wouldn't be able to do it without them. Also shout out to our swag group of girls today it was stellar. 60 min pm weights and run steamy but good Thu, 13 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 12, 2017 man really good run today. Alli and ness ventured into the top group of girls and that was awesome! Also awesome to have Josie and allip at practice :) love those gals sooooooooo much. Struggled a bit while running in the sand but snapped out of it and finished super strong. Most definitely practiced the last mile fast mile principle today. Super great run and a solid victory for my personal self. 60 min Wed, 12 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 11, 2017 Half on road half of grass. Super fun run.

Striders we're wonderful as well. 40 min Tue, 11 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 10, 2017 Well, if you read Roberts blog you'll understand that I was one who was dragging ;) I don't understand how Saturday I was feeling soooo good and then today was not good really at all. I died up lots of the hills my legs were pretty tired. I'm going to drink lots of water and go to bed early to help my body out. 90 min Mon, 10 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 08, 2017 Best run in a long while. We met up for swag Jessica's birthday at Sullivan. Love Jess sooooooooooooo much. But ya me and Josie and Ellie did the dam road loop from Sullivan. We had some really good conversations and we were going such a good pace. My legs felt wonderful and I can't wait for this next week. 60 min Sat, 08 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 06, 2017 Man today was really crappy ;( I kinda just fell into the dying state. My legs were just really tired. But I was talking to Caroline and she was telling me not everyday gonna be good. So tomorrow will be better! Excited to have coaches back this next week! 50 min pm with Ellie and Scottie :) really hot but ya know we did it. Ready to be lifting again! 15 min Thu, 06 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 05, 2017 today was such a good run. we had a much needed talk and it was wonderful. I love sharing wisdom and experiences with the girls. It was me, ell, Caroline, jace, and Jess. we had a pretty solid pace and ya it was good :) lots of fun. 50 min Wed, 05 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 04, 2017 met at my house for a run :) Ellie, Caroline, Gracie, jacey, Jenessa, and Alli all were there. We did 20 min on the road and then decided we wanted to do a grass run. It was wonderful. Felt so good! Breakfast after was wonderful! Tue, 04 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 03, 2017 Well, had a pretty nice turnout to captain led practice :) we had a group of 5 gals (ell, Jess, brianna, and Sarah) that made a nice group. Pickups felt wonderful. Think we kinda took the pace a little slow today but it was good. Missed lots of girls today. Love running! Oh and the weather was simply wonderful today :) Mon, 03 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 01, 2017 Well, I was going to plan a run at my house but then Ellie planned a run at her house. I went to bed and then woke up to go and found she cancelled at 1 o'clock in the morning. so I was kinda mad cause Alli had to wake up early for something and had already run with both my parents so I had to run by myself. haha sorry for the long story but needless to say I ran by myself and I was really hard. I couldn't keep a solid that was all over the place. Ok run. Definitely not the best :) 50 min Sat, 01 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 30, 2017 Run in Coral Canyon. Kinda rough. Really tired from the tempo yesterday. Struggled to stay with the girls but still a strong run :) sad to not see coaches for a whole week. 60 min (with striders) Fri, 30 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 29, 2017 tempo today :) super super good. we started with some team visualization led by Colton, that was really good. we did tempo at the dirt mile. we had such a solid pack of girls. It was so good to have pyper, Alli, and Sarah up pushing with us saw a lot of strong efforts. It was also nice to have some of the guys running with us. It made our pack a lot stronger. Coach Holt also shared lots of wisdom that was super helpful. I was digging for like the first 15 min then I started to struggle. I told myself that I could stop at 20 if I stayed with the pack. totally wish I didn't cause I totally set a limit on myself. Got to 20 and stopped but I wish that I kept going. Totally will next week for sure. really good run today! 60 min Thu, 29 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 28, 2017 Run up into the desert. We had a really strong group of girls today :) it was super fun! we had a "hilly" run. I struggled to run up the hills mainly cause my mind wasn't in the right place...haha a really good run though fought to get with the pack a lot of times so that's good that I'm fighting. 60 min Wed, 28 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 27, 2017 Today was pretty great! Grass run with striders :) felt pretty wonderful. Think we convinced Roberts to go and see wonderwoman. That's a legendary show :) kids club race today. Ran with a lot of different people. I love seeing the kids go out and do their best. Very inspiring. 40 min 15 min afternoon Tue, 27 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 26, 2017 Today's run was all over the place. We ran into green springs and I just kept falling behind. But ya know as I was thinking I wasn't in any pain. I wasn't seeking to become better or anything. So we stopped at the park and from then on I was determined to stay with the girls even if it meant feeling pain which is something we should want to feel. I felt wonderful on all the pickups. Running fast really feels good. Last 10 min were a real struggle but I feel like I finished pretty strong. Overall really happy with this run. Figuring out how to embrace the pain and struggles that accompany the joy of running. Loved having jacey and Jess and Caroline pack felt good to run with a pack!!! Also shout out to Alli P cause we saw her mowing today and that was fun :) 85 min Mon, 26 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 24, 2017 Today's run was stellar. Me Josie Ellie Alli maycee and Rachel all met together. We ran out towards Warner valley. My legs actually felt wonderful!!! I stayed with jos and ell practically the whole time and when u fell off I found myself fighting to get back with them. Very good mental and physical fight today. Plus the negative split felt wonderful. 70 min Sat, 24 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 23, 2017 haha not sure on distance again cause I forgot my watch. but ya know it was a really good run. I got some new shoes but they are not the right ones for me. They killed my not wearing them ever again. But my legs are honestly feeling a lot stronger. Like I was able to stay with the pack for much longer and I wasn't dying. Feeling like next week is gonna be a good one! Fri, 23 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 22, 2017 Today was 100% better than the last few days. We had a 50 min hilly run. Last night I assessed some of my goals and what I need to do to get there. I have committed to do some pretty big things. And one of those is to start and finish with the pack. Today I did pretty good! I died a little in the middle of the run but joined back up and finished really strong. Much stronger run. Missed Caroline and Jess today :) Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:00:00
