Coach had Clayton choose the workout, so it was a three mile tempo. Rachel and I went 7:00 pace (6:48, 7:12, 7:00) with a half mile at normal pace at the end. After that coach had us do a few 400's. Those felt good. It started raining pretty hard and got super cold so we skipped cooldown. Probably not the wisest decision but aw well. I felt really good during the workout.

Mile warm up, fast 400, and then a workout with coach Cumbee. My quads are sore because he had us do weighted squats and leg extensions. I also did 300 turns on the jump rope. That is super good for me because I have no coordination. Cumbee also helped me with my long jump for gym because I'm really bad on it and I want to do better next time we test. I ran another three miles after. My calves were tight.

Just one mile today since it was the underclassmen meet. The coaches wanted varsity to help. My job was getting people on the start line and putting them in their lanes. That was stressful. I had a lot of fun though. I treated today more like a rest day. My quads and calves are pretty sore. I think jumping yesterday really hurt my calves.

Today was an easy recovery since we have a meet tomorrow. My legs feel better but are still a little sore. I'm not worried about it. As long as I keep them stretched out and get in a good warm up before each race, I'll be good.

I'm crippled now. Hopefully it's only for a week. I was on pace to qualify during the mile when I got this horrible cramp in my calf. I over extended it and it did not feel good. I finished with an ok time, but I was very disappointed. I could tell something was wrong after my race. I massaged the calf. Eventually, my other one started to cramp a little. As I was warming up for the 3200, I noticed that they were sort of pulsing: getting tight and then very loose. The coaches told me to try the 3200 anyways. They pulled me out a mile in. Both of my calves had locked up and it was very painful. I was crying and it was not good. They stopped hurting when I stopped running, but they had developed huge knots and hurt when I moved them or tried to put weight on them. The pain went away eventually. Now they are just really tight. I'll probably be out a few days. Being crippled is not fun.
