A lap of warmup & drills then a 50, 100, 150, 200, 300, 350 with (walking) equal recovery. It was hottt today but a nice workout, per the norm I thrived on the longer stuff. Definitely breathing hard by the end, I honestly don't like walking the recovery. It makes it feel harder. But solid day then picked up my grad announcements, they're pretty cute, you guys(:

Really bringing up the mileage today(; we had hills so we ran over to fire station & did 6x20 sec hills, then some of the girls got a ride back but I ran back with jake and brianna. This workout felt really good. It was nice to get a run in again, & I felt really strong. I'm happy with how this seasons turning out and I'm really feeling a big pr this weekend/at region (whenever I get to jump next)

Warmup & drills. 7x60s with 10m fly before. Nice and easy workout. My breathing has been weird for a while n I'm wondering if it's cause sprinting, idk. Then long jump work. I know I know I know I'm gonna pr this weekend because my form & strength has improved so much this past week especially. AP gov test tomorrow, yuck but yay for it to be over

Warmup, drills 2x200, handoffs. I'm doing the 4x1 tmrw (lol) handoffs were a little shaky but I have faith. Literally just don't drop the baton is our only expectation so #prayforus HERRIMAN IS TOMORROW potentially my last high school trip I'm hyperventilating

HERRMIANN!!!!!!! i had 4 events today, long jump, 4x100, 800, & throwers 4x100 (lol) first we went & did the 4x100, our handoffs weren't perfect but they all came off clean so it was good. Then I went and long jumped, it was ight. My farthest jump was 13'7" which was kind of irritating but it's okay. In the 800 I was seeded 6th but the fastest girl in my heat was only 2 seconds faster than me, so I took it out strong to begin with and NO ONE else came up so I continued to lead but slowed the pace a little  and came in the 400 at 1:18, I felt really good and started to pick it up and create a gap. I felt really strong through the whole rest of the lap & finished good. I never looked at the results so my time is just what dallen had me at. The throwers 4x100 was hilarious, it's basically a 4x100 where instead of a baton you use a Twinkie and only people that do field events are allowed to do it but it was our same 4x100 team that ran earlier so it was nice. We finished running first but brianna couldn't eat the Twinkie fast enough so we actually finished last hahahahahah. Quality meet, much love

6x200, I'll never understand why it's so important to do a cool down/recovery jog between reps in distance running but not in sprinter workouts. Anyway, janz said at the beginning if we stop hitting our times we have to quit & after rep #3 I had hit 3 sec slower but when she told me that I really focused on making them quick and getting my form & I was hitting much better times. Good workout for sure.

We had the senior scholarship banquet tonight & me and dallen were awarded the National Scholar/Athlete Award from the army reserve!!! Yay me & dallen!!

Welp. This was it, my last high school race. It was our 4x100 & I'm happy with it. We took 7th & it was a nice effort from everyone. Don't know my split.

Not quite sure how I'm feeling right now. I went into this season with the goal of having fun. I chose to not put expectations on myself, expectations definitely formed, but it was in a much more positive way than before. I learned to laugh mostly everything off whereas last year I would've cried and I learned to be pleased with myself for trying my hardest, even if the time/place/jump wasn't where I wanted. I know I've grown more as a person this season than I did the three previous seasons combined, and for that I'm really proud and happy. 

At the beginning of the season, I wasn't sure if I was going to run track. I hadn't enjoyed running in so long, it was a chore. I am forever grateful that I did participate this year. I am so #blessed to be able to say that I have no regrets regarding track and also that I achieved my goal of having fun.

Obviously I would've loved to be running at state next weekend, but I can't say I'm disappointed in the season. I learned a new hobby, made lots more friends, & found joy in running, working hard, & going to practice. Because of this season, I'll remember track & field as a happy experience & something I'll miss. I'm actually tearing up writing this, senior year is a bittersweet time.

Special shoutout to all the friends I've made on & off my own team and especially the blog family for being my #1s, to my parents for supporting me and loving me through everything, & especially to Roberts for believing in me, caring about me, & talking to me about whether I was happy or not. I am 100%, absolutely, & without a doubt  blessed with the best.

im a distance runner again!! Trail run!! Mustang pass!! 50 minutes!! Very low in numbers so we hopped in cars and headed to a trail (by my house(;  ) I was nervous beforehand that I wouldn't be able to keep up for very long but I felt super good & did the whole run & the striders. It felt so nice to be running again.
