addi's running :) Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Wed, 29 Mar 2017 03:03:02 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Tue, Mar 28, 2017 morning with weights feeling strong afternoon workout: 3x85sec hills 4x800 (tempo and CV pace) man today was kinda rough. I completed succesful workouts but it was really hard. My calves were really tight and my shin bone muscle idk what it was just ached. But I made sure to stretch and role it so I hope it gets better. It was a good workout though. It was good to get out and push hard. Tue, 28 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 25, 2017 Jeez today was just kinda rough. Idk sometimes I am a baby but it's whatever. The race was really hard. I felt like I was pushing hard it just didn't click at all. It wasn't terrible I just wanted to be somewhere but I wasn't. It's fine now though. I have some great coaches and other people who have taught me so many good things. I love running and I just need to remember that. Also I need to know how to respond to hard situations. Also I need to just be patient and continue to learn the process. Love running and love my teammates. Sat, 25 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 24, 2017 Nice day. Perfect for running. I helped all day to prep for our meet. It was a lot of fun! I like helping cause it gets my mind off everything ;) anyways we did a nice warm up and just chilled. The race was really good! Me and Ellie were in the second heat of girls so that was fun! I started out pretty strong my second lap was good and I hit a really strong surge. Pushed with a good group of girls and hit a pr by 2ish seconds Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 22, 2017 Morning run. weather was absolutely perfect. Love morning runs although I don't completely enjoy the dark. Afternoon easy with striders. Ran into green springs felt pretty grand. Can't wait for the meet it is gonna be a weekend full of a lot of fast running and a lot of fun! I will BE AGGRESSIVE :) Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 21, 2017 Morning run with weights. Felt good to lift again. Afternoon was very very good but very very hard. We had 4x1200 at CV pace. I had a really hard time getting into the first one. But I stayed in and still had a time that was right where I need to be. The second and third one I sat right on the back of the pack. Thanks to tavin I got back with them. The 4th one was by far the hardest but I felt the strongest. I need to focus on small sections of things and I will do so much better. coach Holt's was such a huge help as he asked us to push a 100 and then another. I wasn't worried about a whole lap just a little section and that helped me soooo much. So glad to have teammates and coaches who strengthen and help me become my best. Love running!!!!!! Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 20, 2017 Long run this morning...It was really rough. My hips were really tight and it just pulled my quads and it just really wasn't that great. Pick ups were fine it helped me get back in it but it was rough. Glad to have the long run over for the week :) oh plus we went over by like 7 min but it's whatever Nice afternoon run. seemed to be getting HOT!!! really chill and I needed it after this morning :) decided that this season I'm gonna get good sleep. attempted last but just fell behind. Not gonna happen this season cause I know it will only make me better and that is worth it to me! Mon, 20 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 18, 2017 man today's run was the hardest run of the week. I ran by myself and that was a mistake. also I think doing both of our workouts right in a row was also not the wisest choice. but I got in 70 min at about an 8:30 pace. It was a long run and I was really tired but it was worth it. Running is always worth it. Also I enjoyed some time to think and that is always nice too. Nice end to a long hard week. Sat, 18 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 17, 2017 Ran when I got home from Cali and from quartzite (weird place where my grandparents live) it was a good idea cause my legs were so sore from sitting in the car for what seemed like forever. My mom and dad came with me and we did hills on majestic. 5x1 min 1x85 sec. I felt so good! I am beginning to love hills cause I love the feeling of running to the top and conquering them. It was a perfect workout and I felt so strong. Can't wait to see the team again. I have missed everyone so much. Love running glad that didn't change in a week :) Fri, 17 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 16, 2017 Workout at Oceanside. We didnt really know how to do distance so we just calculated what our time would be and did repeats of that. So we did 4x4 min 1x2:22 min and 1x1:35 min it was really good. There are a lot of people at the beach so it wasn't super fun to navigate in and out of them. But I felt really strong and me, ell, and jos all did a really good job I think :) kept a nice pace. I was sad to leave cali cause I had so much fun with my fam and with my best friends (jos and ell) so many good memories were made. Love spending time with people that make me happy. Thu, 16 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 15, 2017 Ran with my mom before a long day at the zoo. It was fun did the same run as the first day so we "won't get lost" as my mom put it ;) love running it wakes you up and helps make your day a lot better. The weather was really pretty too. Just perfect for running. Wed, 15 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 14, 2017 Run at Torrey Pines State park. It was sooooooooo beautiful! We conquered another mountain and I fell like I am getting a lot better at hills :) we ran on a lot of trails and the ocean was so pretty and the trees. It was a good hard fun run :) Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 13, 2017 finally got to cali. The bushars were nice enough to wait for me to run. There was a nice huge hill we ran down then ran on a cool little path by the ocean (or a little section of it). Very very very beautiful. It was also nice to get the long drive out of my legs. Felt great! Mon, 13 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 10, 2017 Nice run in the morning with yoga. FIRST RACE OF THE SEASON!!! Glad to get it out of the way ;) it was a good race. Nothing really wonderful but it was still solid. I'm glad that I know that I have so much room to improve. I just need to take what I learned and apply it to future races. Can't wait for many more. I can already tell this is gonna be one of the best seasons yet. Congrats to jace for killing it and for qualifying for state! Fri, 10 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Mar 09, 2017 lol don't know the miles 😂😂😂 nonetheless it was a wonderful day! We had a nice morning with weights and a short run. felt good! Afternoon into green springs. So excited for the meet tomorrow ready to see how strong and fit I am :) love running! Thu, 09 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Mar 08, 2017 Workout in the morning. Felt wonderful! Had 2x1200 2(400,400,600) it was really solid. Had a swell pack of girls and everyone pushed hard. I can tell that we are all so strong and ready to run hard. At least I know I am. Afternoon was HOT!!! haha shouldn't be saying that yet ;) it was a nice chill 20 minute run. Feeling great. Wed, 08 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Mar 07, 2017 if you were to ask Roberts he would tell you I'm a negative runner who complains a lot ;) only if he makes us run green springs... Luckily we didn't so it was a great run! we ran a very solid pace and had a very nice group. the weather was beautiful and I had a really great day. Tue, 07 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Mar 06, 2017 Morning long run. Love long runs in the morning. Also the stars were beautiful when I left my house. Felt pretty good during the run. Nothing too bad. Ran what felt like a lot of hills. But like we say, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" love running with my best friends every day :) After school we had a nice 20 min chill run that felt wonderful. ran on the grass at sandstone. love grass runs. love short days at school. love a lot of things. life is really good right now :) Mon, 06 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Mar 02, 2017 lol I'm really lazy at making the distance accurate but you know it's whatever ;) today was a wonderful day. I now have an a in math and school was great. morning practice was wonderful. weights were nice although I am sore...I honestly didn't really think a lot about the time trial I prepared but didn't stress. I am so happy with how I did!!! I was 3rd on the girls team and if we compared it to a mile it would be a major PR! I am so stoked about this track season. I can already tell that it is gonna be one of the best seasons yet. so ready to go out and kill it! loving running! Thu, 02 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Feb 28, 2017 morning run with weights. feeling nice and strong but a lot more sore 😬😬😬 had 30 min along with a 400 (for decathlon) nice run with jace. feeling really good! the 400 was swell ran a 1:10 so not great but I'm pretty sure it's one of the fastest ones I've ever ran. plus i was the 2nd fastest girl :) I was really glad and happy.
