Mayor's loop from the high school, felt pretty good, but a little tired toward the end.

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.

Easy pre-meet mileage with some 200s on the track. Calves still bugging but not as bad as yesterday.

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.
