Regular Wednesday workout. Yikes. On the warm up I was coughing a lot & my lungs kind of hurt so I was just gonna see what I could do, we got going on the first set & I was coughing & it was making me feel like I was gonna throw up, & my lungs started burning. Not very good feelings, so I dropped. While I was just running around the track I could feel the disappointment, not from others on the track, I've learned that doesn't really matter, but I was disappointed in myself & really discouraged. I was just going to do the recovery lap with the team when I jumped back in but Roberts started talking to me & I decided to just push through it. I jumped back in & the first 3 were miserable, I knew they weren't helping me cause I wasn't focusing on form or anything, so the next 3 I started to focus on form, I still couldn't stay with the girls, but it helped to focus on form when I was tired. Anyway, bad workout but I learned a bit.

AM- I've been ditching mornings cause of my cold.

PM- 40 minutes + striders. A nice run into green springs, I felt really good & my cough was almost nonexistent. Enjoyed some nice conversation and a nice pace. Then 6 striders.

Tempo! On the warm up I knew this was gonna be a tough one. My whole body was just exhausted, I've lost a lot of sleep the past little while through sickness. But I was ready to give what I had. We started out & I was doing fine, tired but fine. I figured I might get into the same way I did last week after 15 minutes, but at 15 minutes I was actually falling off the pack. At 19 minutes I said that if I could work my way back up to the pack over the course of the next minute, I could stop. So I did & stopped. Then I just did laps around the track while they finished. This was a super tough mental workout, but I'm proud of how much I was able to stay in there, considering the circumstances. 7/10  !!!!Also prom's tomorrow & its gonna be legendary ahhh

Longest of runs. We went under the new overpass & up turkey farm road. I've been up there lots of times but never ran it, it was tough not gonna lie. But I felt really really good today. I have no idea why, could be the weather, or the easier week last week, or the fact that I didn't really eat lunch today (you'd think that's bad but apparently it works for me?¿) anyway, yeah, I felt really good. I turned around early to get 70, longest run this track season for meh. 3 cheers for that. ALSO me & brianna went & waited like an hour to get free frozen yogurt after & it was worth it to the max oh man.

Root beer mile. Wowowza. We did 20 minutes warm up then the mile. I drank my first can in approximately 30ish seconds I'd say & got out in a strong 4th girl. Then I couldn't drink the second can for the life of me, I did finish it though & got out on my second lap. With the third can I drank about 2 ounces of it then threw it away & did a lap right before they cut the time. Solid work to everyone. It's always a tough one lol. Then just about 7 minutes to get some more minutes in. BLECK I hate root beer

Normal Wednesday workout with a little baby twist. We did 4x60 sec at critical velocity, 3x60 at tempo, 3x60 at threshold and 4x60 at critical velocity. First we did a warm up of 15 minutes I believe, then the workout. The first 4 were our fastest & felt tough but manageable, then the next 3 felt easy & the next 3 weren't too bad either. The last 4 were tough but easy to push through because there was only 4. Then cool down on the track, we played lots of games. It was a lot of fun(: I felt good about this workout, it was hard but beautiful. 

THEN we went to the pv vs Dixie game THE BEST GAME ON THE WORLD!!!! We won & it was SUCH a GOOD GAME!!!!!!!!! Ah I'm still so happy about it. Then cake at Mitch's house for his bday(:

AM- been a while since I've been to morning, weights + 15 minutes. Nice easy. My legs are tired, tight & beat.

PM- 40 + striders out yonder on a trail I don't know. It was real pretty but man was I tired.

Side note- it's finally hit me that I graduate in SIXTY-FIVE school days..... everything I know is going to be gone & ive been so focused on how excited I am to get out that I'm legitimately having a mental breakdown about this. Pray for alli you guys

Tempo. 15 minutes warm then 25 minutes of tempo. I kinda struggled and fell off the pack a couple times but never too far and I was always able to work my way back up. I even took a turn leading when I felt myself falling off, which I don't usually do. It was quality & really really tough. My body is tired, then some cool

Long run. 70 minutes. 

I was notttttt feeling good at the beginning of this run, my shins were in 1 tight knot. I wasn't fatigued or anything just my legs weren't having it. I turned around at 25 minutes & thought maybe I'd stop & roll out then add some on after I was less tight, but at around 40-45 minutes they finally started loosening up a bit so I just added on from there up DI & around the school a couple times. I was alone for most the run so I thought a lot a lot a lot which is not good for me. After I rolled out with Josie's roller that she kindly offered to let me borrow

AM- 20 to arctic circle. It was cold but I felt pretty good. & did not get hit by a car despite my abandonment of a light colored shirt

PM- 12x400s @ critical velocity + 5 min tempo before & 4 striders afterward. I felt really good during the workout but after each interval I just felt really nauseous & after the 400s I thought I might throw up. So that's it. I'm actually going to become serious about drinking water & eating healthier, I know that's my problem because when I do drink water I have a much more successful workout/run. Someone hold me to this
