Six minute test went super well. I improved by 140 meters. And I was so happy. And I feel like I’m super close to breaking the six in the mile, which makes me super happy. The 2 hill circuits killed me and killed Anna even more. She probably shouldn’t have done them with her hurt knee.

Can I just say I love running and I love track! 

The run was super good today dispite the fact that Anna couldn’t run again today. I ran with Allie Brown and Jenna for the first 12 ish minutes in the front of the group and then started falling behind. By the time we got to the park I was in the back of the pack, and soon all the girls were out of sight. I didn’t let this get to me though and ran until I saw a few of the girls turning back. I looked at my time and saw that I said had to go about 10 more minutes out before turning around. I didn’t however and turned around at 23 minutes. Running back was hard, but at least it was running instead of a weird run/walk that I usually do when we head out on the river trail. When I got back I still had 10 minutes left to go, so I went around the school. At about 52 minutes I went to get my stuff and leave when I was reminded we had to do striders. So I went and did 6 of those and then chilled by the track talking to everyone.

Rad Thing of The Day: World Civs, cause it’s my favorite class. And history is interesting

Running on Saturdays is actually really fun. I really should do it more often. I think the last time I ran on a Saturday was back in November with Cam.

So after thinking about running since I woke up this morning I finally got into my running clothes around 3ish. However I discovered my watch was almost dead so I let it charge and thought about doing homework. (It is the thought that counts, right?) Once it was all charged I went out on my run. Decided where to go is really hard. I went out towards Chick-fli-a because I haven't been that way in awhile, plus I kinda thought about stopping and seeing Anna at work. I didn't go in though because I have these crazy sharpie tats on my arm and was all sweaty. I turned back a little earlier than I should have to get that negative split in, but I still got it in just had to run past my house a few times.

Today was a long run, and I was super excited to run with Anna. But because of work and her injurety she could only go out 10 minutes with me. (But it’s fine we got a good 10 minute vent session in)

After that I was off on my own, and my legs the whole time were screaming at me to stop and turn around. I went out 30 minutes though, and then went back, trying to keep up the same pace as best I could. Overall the run was great, and I’m just so in love with running right now.

Rad Thing of The Day: Anna made me the cutest (late) Christmas present. It’s two photo albums of us. One is specific to cross country, and has a bunch of great running quotes in it. The other is just us with a bunch of best friend quotes and inside jokes.

Root beer mile today :)! It was alright, I guess. I didn’t finish I got 3 cans though, so that’s better than last time.

Rest of the run was super sucky. And I gave up 30 minutes in so yeah.

Rad Thing of The Day: I went driving with the instructor on the freeway and didn’t kill anyone!

I stayed with the top girls for 15 minutes and then tried my best to keep running until 20. I might have turned around early and then back out once or twice, but I got 20 eventually, then turned back and did 4 striders. 

Rad Thing of The Day: I didn’t kill anyone in the driver’s ed car

Workout: 4x1 CV, 6x1 (tempo threshold), 4x1 CV

Minutes: 57

I wasn’t that excited for the workout. I’m not sure why but this week has been the longest week ever to exist for me and I just want it to be over. But the workout turned out to be good and on pace most of the time. There were a few paces I was too fast on, and I was slow on my first threshold. 

The workout was all by myself because Anna can’t do the workouts yet, and everyone else in my workout group is injured. (Side note I like these workout groups we started doing) on the cool down I did it with all the girls and Holt and Roberts. Holt kept me with them until I decided I had to turn back. As soon as I turned back I regretted it, I should have went the last 10 minutes with them. But I ran back to the high school and finished off my run. I just gotta get out of my comfort zone.

Also I skipped weights because I’m lazy. I really got to work on getting there next week.

Rad Thing of The Day: I got new glasses and two people actually noticed and told me I looked cute.

The first half of this run was bad, I went slow and honestly could not stop thinking about how crappy my day was. But by the second half I finally forgot and got into the run. I picked up the pace and went out a little longer than planned, then come back faster. Running is nice when it takes away the stress of life

8-12x400 @ CV w/ 1min rec; 15min warm (including 5 at E Tempo)/cool to time                        

Warm up and easy tempo were good. Brynnli and I started the workout and hit the time every time. After 5, she had to go ice so I was by myself. I did 5 more, the first 2 were two fast, 3rd was right on, 4th way to Fast (cause coach holt helped corrected my form and I just went way to Fast) the 5th was right on and then I went and cooled down around the school with the girls. 

Rad Thing of The Day: The assembly was great and funny. Also Colton did good

I love running. I love running even more when Anna runs with me. :). Anna and me talked about dating and stuff. She’s fun to talk to. The run was good too. We went into Washington. After I did 2 Hulk circuits (lol I mean hill circuits). Those were good. I really like doing those. 

Rad Thing of The Day: I saw the black panther and it was 10/10

Anna and I met at her house for a run out towards Dixie Rock. We left her house a little after 8 and just ran and talked the whole time. We decided to stick to main roads, and not run a trail, because we get lost too often. After the run we ate French Toast at her house (it was delicious). Really glad I got my Saturday run in first thing in the morning.

Rad Thing of The Day: Running today (Cause that's all I've done)

Minutes: 35 w/ 4xStriders

I had to shorten the run today so I could go take the driving test. Anna and me just talked, and the run was nice. I’m really mad at myself for missing my run yesterday, and this mornings run and weights. There wasn’t much I could do about this morning though, with my parents out of town it would have been hard to get there, but yesterday I had no excuse. It kinda sucks when you realize the only thing keeping you from getting better is yourself. I’m gonna try to work better on going and getting my runs in. 

Rad thing of the day: Passing my drivers test

Also I did yoga today at young womens, it was super fun and relaxing. I think me and the girls are gonna try to do it at girls camp.

Honestly probably the best run of my life. I started off with the group as always. Before we got out of the neighborhood though I tricked myself into thinking I needed to walk. That was a mistake. As soon as I stopped Roberts yelled my name. I realized 2 things at the moment. 1) I didn’t feel like running by myself. 2) It hurts a lot more going slow.

So I speed up and got back into the pack. I was starting to die right before Artic Cicrle and I was super happy we stopped so a few girls could pee. (We ended  up leaving them behind a few minutes later tho) I stayed with the group the rest of the way and then flipped with Sylvia. I ranted to her and she was nice enough to listen. And then the run was done. I just feel so confident now and like I can stay with the pack more often now.

Well because of the lightning warning we had to run inside the school. It was kinda fun. Mostly hot. I stayed with the girls for about 15 minutes then fell off he pack. I did 2 weird kill circuits with stairs.

Kinda went slow with Anna. My knee was hurting and I was super sore from yesterday. Then did hill circuits by myself. Those kinda sucked too. I’m surprised I did 3.

Rad Thing of The Day: I drove to the store all by myself.

Well Anna and me took a trip down memory lane today. One of our bonding moments freshman year happened when we ran to Sandburgs. It was the day I almost killed Anna. You’ll have to ask Anna for more details.

Rad Thing of The Day: 4/5 people told Anna that she should infact cut off her leg and get a new fake one. (Even coach holt said so, and he’s a professional)
