Season recap:

This outdoor track season had its ups and downs. Coming into the season I was pretty excited and antsy to get back on the track and race. My workouts were going well and I was consistently hitting about 50-60 miles/week. I felt healthy going into my first race and was really content with the results (9:35 in my steeple debut), but I knew I could do better. Unfortunately I started having some calf pain the day after my first race. I continued to have lower leg/foot pain that persisted through the season. I tried out some different methods of treatment but the only thing that seemed to help was rest. I ended up doing a lot of biking to try and maintain my aerobic fitness but I think I just didn't benefit from it like I was hoping to. I think I still did fairly decent at conference given the circumstances, and placed 5th in the steeplechase and 15th in my first 5k on the track.

I can't be too disappointed about the season. I feel like my goals were realistic and achievable, but I might've increased the mileage and intesity too quick for my body to handle. I'm taking this week off to just relax and let my body heal up, then next week I'll start doing some cross training to start off the xc season. I'm excited for this season but I need to take it easy and not get into it too quick.
