Workout today! Pretty much the first time doing speed work since Monday last week, haha. 2 mile progressive tempo on the track. Went through the first mile on pace around 5:00, then dropped back a little bit on the second mile. I was really feeling it on those last couple laps, haha! Finished off with 4x150 strides.

It was a good push for me, and it's helping my endurance. I stayed in it for the first mile and even led the 4th lap (we took turns leading, sort of) and kept us on pace. Also, I responded well after the tempo and finished strong with some good strides.

I think one improvement could be to push through the pain when there's a change of pace and fighting to stick with the pack.

Cross training! 25.5 mi/70 min on the stationary bike at the wellness center. I watched the NatGeo documentary on the sub 2 marathon attempt. It was pretty sweet! It got me thinking about the limits that we put on ourselves, and about what we can accomplish if we set our minds to it. The guy was 25 seconds off of sub 2, just 1 second per mile! Eliud Kipchoge is my runner of the week!

Wow! Today was a tough one! 16x400 w/2:00 rest. The first 12 were a little faster than 3k pace and the last 4 were at mile pace.

I hit 70.7, 70.7, 66.5, 67.1, 66.6, 65.6, 65.7, 65.7, 66.1, 66.0, 65.4, 66.0, 62.9, 63.5, -- , 61.4. I didn't do number 15 because was hurting a little bit and I didn't make it to the start line in time so I decided to drop it and get a little extra recovery for the last one. Other than that I felt pretty good! Solid workout for me heading into my first race with the team next weekend.

Raced the 1500, I felt pretty good, I just need to be a little more responsive to moves in the beginning of the race and not get too relaxed. Good meet this weekend, I'm happy with how it went.

Headed over to Dixie State's track for a workout this morning. 12x400 w/ 90 sec rest. I felt pretty good, but had to take an extra 30 sec rest for the last 4 I think. I felt like I finished strong so that's good, because I feel like I struggle to push through the pain and finish hard in some races so I think this workout will really help. Interesting to think that this was the first track I ever ran on, probably when I was only 3 or 4 years old! It was also where I had my first official track practice with the Dixie Dashers when I was in 4th grade, haha.

3 miles shakeout in the morning. 7 miles in the afternoon, a light workout to get the legs ready to go on Saturday. It was raining pretty hard! Calves were bugging quite a bit again today.

Raced both the 1500 and 800 today. 

1500- I was a little nervous about how my calves would hold up, and I almost decided not to race, but I did and my calves didn't bug me at all during the race so that was good. My time from last week put me in the slowest heat of the 1500, and almost the slowest time, hahaha, dang. It was a good race though, I got into good position and the race went out at a good pace, 46/47 for the first 300m. Second lap was pretty slow, about 67 seconds. Just before we hit the finish line with 800 to go, I made a surge and moved up on the inside to take the lead. Well that must've woken everyone up because a few guys behind me surged ahead and I was back in 4th like 50m after taking the lead, haha. That lap was a little faster, but not by much, about 66 seconds. The last lap I just tried to push hard, and ended up surging past a couple guys on the backstretch. Both passed me with 100m left and I was able to catch one of them just before the finish to take 3rd. It was a pretty good race; I was more aggressive which was my goal, and I ended up with a 4 second PR from last week. 

800- My calves were bugging again after the 1500 and I wasn't sure if I'd run the 800, but I was pretty sure they wouldn't bother me during the race and decided to just go for it. I ended up in the slowest of 4 heats again because I didn't have a seed time. The race didn't go out very fast, I think it was 29 for the first 200 and 59 at the 400, but my legs were just toast from the 1500. I tried to hang on for as long as possible but ended up with a 2:02 for 4th (out of 5, haha) in my heat. It was okay, I just think I'm not used to running that fast for that long since our training has been more 1500 specific.

Overall it was a solid meet. There are good things I can take away from both races, and also things I need to improve on.

Decided to take today to cross train and give my legs a little more recovery from the last couple weeks. 90 minutes on the stationary bike at the wellness center w/4x15sec pushes at the end.

2x(600,400,300,200) on the track today. Lots of wind, but probably the best I've felt so far on this workout. Feeling good heading into this weekend's race. I don't know what I'm racing yet but I'll be ready! Also tested out the new steeple spikes today, they were awesome!
