I was only supposed to do three miles today but Reagen and I got distracted and ends up running farther then we meant. We took it at recovery pace though so it wasn't fast. I needed it though.

So today was the rendezvous. Kedric and I both ran first runner so we had a long time to wait. It was nice to get a decent lunch. I wasn't starving for half the day like some meets. Rachel and Kenzie, two of our freshman varsity runners, killed it! They both placed in the top five so they got medals. They ran about what I did last year. That really excited me because that means they could be as fast as I am currently when they are sophomores. My race went ok. Since I was in the fastest girls race, I ran in no mans land for most of it. Fifth place was about 1:10 ahead of me and I was about thirty seconds ahead of seventh. It sucked. Pacing alone was really hard. I didn't realize how much I needed my teammates during a race. After I finished, I found out Reagen Jacia and I were all with in three seconds of each other. That's good because when we race together, we can really ouch one another.

Another easy core/recovery day. My hips were very sore. I really need to stretch them out.

Today was the day almost everyone dreads: Yellow Hill repeat day. They weren't too bad today though. We did five ladders with equal rest. Reagen and I pushed hard but didn't kill ourselves. The Wasatch rendezvous is on Friday and we didn't want to be too sore. I was super tired today. I've been doing the morning driving sessions with the instructor so I haven't been getting all my sleep. I can't do it in the afternoon and I don't want to wait so I'm just gonna push through the sleep deprivation.

Easy recovery day today. My hips were sore but they have been since the Wasatch invite. Hills tend to do that to me. The tempo yesterday had some hills too so that didn't help. Rachel, Reagen, McKenna, and I did an easy three mile run. It started raining, which wouldn't have been bad except it was like needle drops and it sort of hurt. We did some core after.

Today was a four mile tempo day. Henderson switched out our long runs for tempos. I'm happy with that. I really need the speed training. The run felt good overall. I was a little sore at first but it went away quickly. I averaged about a 7:25 pace. That was pretty good but I think I need to push the pace a little more.
