I think once is good enough for me&nbsp;</p> Tue, 23 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, May 20, 2017 <p>Not very nervous because I had nothing to lose. My goal was to fight and to keep my eyes up to stay focused. First 3 laps I felt strong and then it felt like my energy left me and my legs got heavy. I came through the mile in 5:30 though so I was still on pace.&nbsp;The next few laps were really hard and I was running alone for most of it. Two girls came up on me and I forced myself to pick up the pace and stay with them. Proud of myself for fighting but it&#39;s also really frustrating seeing where I could/should be. I think if I had one more week I would be back. I really wanted to get the school record but oh well. It&#39;s been a crazy season,&nbsp;I&#39;m excited for some awesome summer runs.</p> <p>Came back to watch Ali destroy in the 800. 2x state champ as me best friend. Played kill with some cool kids. Went to costa vida with Ali and then to the Bybee&#39;s party and then to the other Bybee&#39;s party. It was a good time&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 20 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 19, 2017 <p>Super frustrating. I was so ready to PR and was mentally in it. First lap felt great and I thought my legs were back. Came through 800 on pace but the pack started separating and I fell back. Not at all what I wanted. I was hoping I would feel better by now but I guess it takes time.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 19 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 18, 2017 <p>Easy 3 in the morning again. It was pretty cold&nbsp;</p> Thu, 18 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 17, 2017 <p>Pretty uneventful run before school.&nbsp;We ran into Ryan and he pushed the pace&nbsp;</p> Wed, 17 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 16, 2017 <p>Ali randomly wanted to get a blog and didn&#39;t want to be a loner&nbsp;so I got one too. Warmed up 1.5 then (400,300,200)x2 I took it out a little fast because Madi started coming up on me so we ran a 71 haha but it felt good. Everyone hated me.&nbsp;2 mile cooldown and we tried to find Molen for chocolate milk but decided to practice starts on the blocks and did hurdles for fun. Came back for JV region and watched all the hilarious videos I have of Ali and got some good new ones too. This was my last workout at the good ol LP track,&nbsp;it&#39;s been fun.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 16 May 2017 06:00:00
