Practice was more condidtioning today. Not a lot of people showed since it was spring break. Coach Hill had us run a bleacher lap followed by an 800 (or 400 for sprinters/throwers). Then we hopped the bleachers followed by an 800. Then push-ups up the bleachers flowed by an 800. Next was 50 sit-ups followed by 800 and then 50 burpees. I did a few laps after to cooldown. I felt pretty good overall, but I'm tired. I've raced two solid meets the past week plus all the speed coach Hill assigns. It's working for sure though. I feel a lot stronger.

Today was speed. After the mile warmup, coach assigned distance a pretty killer workout. I was the only distance runner there. The others were either sprinters or throwers or they are racing the underclassmen meet at Wasatch tomorrow. So lucky me, I got to do 3x800, 2x400, 2x300, and 6x100 with 400 recovery for the 800/400 and 100 recovery for the 300/100. That was fun to do by myself. I felt pretty good, but my hips are pretty sore.

I finally got a Distance day!!!! Coach Hill gave Distance an easy 40-45 minute run. Reagan and I went at a good pace for about 5.5 miles. It was cooler this morning. I felt great. I haven't had a solid run for a few weeks. It almost felt like XC again. 


Another half mile in the evening. I volunteer with the local special needs soccer program as a buddy. My job is to help a kid to understand the basic rules of soccer and facilitate their play. Sometimes though, they don't want to play and choose to run away instead. So I got a solid hour of child wrangling  tonight.

Today was pretty solid. Coach Hill left Clayton in charge, so we did a good core workout. We ran a lap in between each exercise. After, some of the team ran Flume, but I opted out. I am quite talented at getting hurt (the definition of "accident prone" is Rylie) when I run Flume. I have a meet Saturday so I wanna stay healthy.  I did a little more after they left. Overall, I felt good. 

I'm pretty sure I have skin cancer. My sock tan line is super bad. My feet are literally the color of paper compared to my legs.🤷🏽‍♀️

It was a pretty solid day. I've stayed consistent. I ran a mile in 5:55 for the seventh time. It's a little frustrating but I'm very happy with my race. I was strong the whole time. There were like twenty girls in my race, it was crazy. I had to use a lot of energy to get around the pack. I didn't get boxes in and I managed to stay with the front pack. 

My 3200 went well too. I didn't PR, but my form was a lot better. I ran in no man lands for most of it. I was sixth though so I scored points! Considering I was one of only three athletes from the team there and I had no coaches, I'm very happy with the meet.
