Mostly ran with jos, I enjoy our chats, gonna miss that when we graduate.</p> <p>PM- Dixie invite. Kicked off the day with some long jumping, I seriously love jumping so much. I could do it for days you guys. I did not pr so that&#39;s sad but I have next Tuesday so it&#39;s alright. Then the 400 was fine. My upper legs were 100% tight afterwards, like sooo tight. I don&#39;t actually know my time but that&#39;s what my mom said so I&#39;ll put that. Then I had to go home to do some se&ntilde;or ball stuff for tomorrow. It should be a blast and a half</p> Fri, 21 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 20, 2017 <p>AM- weights + 15 minutes. Had a bit of an almost accident with oncoming traffic due to the sprinklers turning on. &quot;I&#39;ll die dry&quot; -Roberts hahahahah happy 4/20!!!!!!!!&nbsp;</p> <p>PM- 45 + striders. Passing out flyers so we went down 2450 through the neighborhoods and back. WE SAW THE CUTEST HUGEST FLUFFIEST DOG EVER AND I PETTED IT which was&nbsp;the best decision of my life to date. Other than that, tough run my legs are real tired and I&#39;d say all the weed in my system probably wasn&#39;t my friend today(;</p> Thu, 20 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 19, 2017 <p>AM- 2x1000, 4x400, 4x200. Rough workout. Thought about quitting lots&nbsp;but prevailed the whole workout, small victories are still victories.</p> <p>PM- 20 minutes. Better but on very tired legs. Good chat with Roberts regarding where I&#39;m going with my last month of competitive running, weird to think about ya know</p> Wed, 19 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 18, 2017 <p>45 minutes w/ 6xstriders afterwards. Tough run but I held in well. Then worked on long jump for a while. I&#39;m feeling really good about it coming into this weekend. Huge pr coming my way(;</p> Tue, 18 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 17, 2017 <p>60 minutes. We went to the Middleton trail. It was lots of fun. My legs were a bit tired &amp; my breathing was a bit off but other than that very fun and good run. Easter break was a good one</p> Mon, 17 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 10, 2017 <p>AM- 60 minutes w/ 6xstriders. Big day for me. First morning long run in a long time.&nbsp;because I&#39;m racing tomorrow I just had 55 + strides so when the girls started their tempo it was just me Carli &amp; jenessa. We ran up to the maverik by the freeway onramp. I felt extremely good on this run &amp; worked on my form a bit but really it was just a lot of fun. I always feel so good in the mornings.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM- 20 on the grass. Boy do I love the grass.</p> Mon, 10 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 08, 2017 <p>Desert hells day 2 it was rainy when we got there but cleared up nicely before my race. I was in the second heat 800 &amp; I was seeded last in my heat. I warmed up a bit and tried to stay warm while I watched josie, colton, logan &amp; alex kill their 800s so s/o to them. Then we got on the track &amp; lucky me I was the only one in the farthest alley&nbsp;&nbsp;so fielding let me go to the waterfall &amp; start with them. I got out good &amp; &nbsp;felt really strong. The first lap just zoomed by &amp; when I hit the 400 I just kept thinking &quot;only a 400 to go&quot; which was an incredibly uplifting thought &amp; helped me a lot. I ended third in my heat I&#39;m pretty sure.&nbsp;Then cool down with brianna up the mountain behind the school. Desert hills is always a meet I perform well at I dunno why. Good weekend</p> Sat, 08 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 07, 2017 <p>AM- 20 minutes. My legs were tired but that&#39;s what happens when you do all the runs you&#39;re supposed to. I am thoroughly enjoying mine Roberts &amp; Josie&#39;s conversations on the runs. We have good chats</p> <p>PM- DESERT HILLS INVITE!!!!! all I had was the long jump, &amp; I ended up pr-ing by almost 2 feet which made me extremely excited for this whole endeavor. I got a 14&#39;4&quot; jump &amp; all three of my jumps were over 13&#39; so I am SO pleased with how today went. Also S/O to my good friend mitchley for getting his mission call to EL SALVADOR</p> Fri, 07 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 06, 2017 <p>AM- weights+ 15 felt considerably more difficult than yesterday&#39;s morning run, I need to get my form to do something cause it&#39;s relly strugglin&nbsp;</p> <p>PM- 45 + striders we went under the new underpass through Middleton then all the way back to sandburgs, then back to the high school. It was quite the loop, my legs were tired but I think it was mostly my mind. I ate some crackers right before practice today n it helped a bit with the stomach aches. I just need to eat more all the time. So goals for this month: eat more &amp; also be less vocal to others when I&#39;m annoyed with them</p> Thu, 06 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 05, 2017 <p>AM- 20 minutes. I felt really good and me josie and Roberts ran in front of everybody cause they wanted to go slow. Gained a lot of insight&nbsp;</p> <p>PM- 50 minutes. I was gonna go 45 but I suck at math n ended up turning when everybody else did. It was good for me. I&#39;ve been getting weird stomach aches while I run &amp; I think it&#39;s cause I don&#39;t eat enough. I need to get on top of that</p> Wed, 05 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 04, 2017 <p>AM- 15 + weights. I felt really, really good</p> <p>PM- PANTHER RELAYS I had the 400 in the distance medley, 4x800, &amp; 4x400. The first 400 &amp; 800 were both at mile pace, then the 400 was just all out. It was fun and nice.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 04 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 30, 2017 <p>40 min + striders.&nbsp;We went to target, my favorite place in the world but we didn&#39;t go inside. Me &amp; Roberts talked about my training problems &amp; out of shapeness. Also, drugs but there was no new knowledge to be found. Today was just an off day for me, the whole day. It has to do with the weather. Bummer, tomorrow will be better.</p> Thu, 30 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 28, 2017 <p>AM- weights + 15</p> <p>PM- RACE there was a bit of a problem concerning us not having a bus then the meet actually getting cancelled but eventually it was rescheduled to dhells!!!!! I was SO HAPPY when it got rescheduled cause I wanted to race so bad. My events today were the long jump, 300 hurdles, &amp; 3200. I&#39;ve never ever done the hurdles or the 3200 in all my years so I really wanted to. The long jump was fine, I scratched my best jump which was depressing. Then the 300 hurdles came along &amp; I was really scared &amp; laughed through the whole thing because I have ZERO form lol but it was a lot of fun. Then the 3200 &amp; THERE WAS NO GIRLS I told everyone around me that I was not running it several times but then apparently I ended up on the track running it, shocker. There was 3 boys &amp; I was able to immediately pass one of them then I sat on the shoulder of the second one for the majority of the race and he matched EVERY SINGLE ONE of my surges. It was so irritating honestly. He ended up beating me along with another boy but I was satisfied. I can now live my life saying I ran&nbsp;the 3200. 100% grand meet. Also s/o to my team for waiting for me to race &amp; cheering SO LOUD lol I love you guys so much</p> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 25, 2017 <p>PINE VIEW INVITE PART TWO WOOO SECOND BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!! I did the 800 &amp; I never looked at my time lol (so I just put something cause it made me)&nbsp;but I was really tired and it wasn&#39;t my best I&#39;m sure but I pushed myself pretty good so that&#39;s good. My training just isn&#39;t there right now but it will be. But today was just a continuation of the great day of yesterday except it was raining and cold but that&#39;s okay. Last pine view invite of my career and it was absolutely wonderful. After I went to durangos with all my frenz then I watched Robin Hood with colton &amp; that&#39;s like my second favorite movie so three cheers for today</p> Sat, 25 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 24, 2017 <p>PINE VIEW INVITE WOOO BEST MEET OF THE YEAR !! I did the 400 &amp; did just okay. I felt stronger towards the end than I usually am able to so positive. BUT GUESS WHAT EVERYONE! I LONG JUMPED!!!!!! And so first I got a scratch cause too far over the line then I got 11&#39;6&quot; which is not farther than 12&#39; so they wouldn&#39;t record it BUT THEN I got 12&#39;5&quot;!!!!!!! They marked it it was my best experience I was absolutely ecstatic you guys. Also today was the best day I love pv invite I love pv I love track I love life yay yay yay</p> Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 23, 2017 <p>AM- weights + 15 minutes. On my way home some stranger&nbsp;smiled and waved at me from their&nbsp;car &amp; it made me happy. I love the world some days</p> <p>PM- 40 + 200s. Felt tired on the way out there but I felt a lot better on the way back. There was minimal rain which was really nice because a half&nbsp;hour before we ran it was pouring &amp; windy. The 200s were fine, I wasn&#39;t feeling super fast but I bet I&#39;m just saving it for tomorrow&nbsp;</p> Thu, 23 Mar 2017 06:00:00
