Today was a really rough run. I was fine on the first 10 minute tempo but as we moved into the second I knew it was gonna get tough. After a really though week negative thoughts came into my head and I was battling them the entire run. Lately i've been struggling with running and the mental battles it comes with. Stress has started to rule my life but i'm gonna fight as hard as I can and overcome this hard day.

I had lots of thoughts today during the morning run and during the race. I really was worried about not being able to go to renegade camp as coach was saying top 5 at the time trial have a for sure spot and I was 6th. That got me started on preparing for the race but the major thing that really hit me was the mini pep talk decker gave to me minutes before the gun went off. He talked about how last year I would say that my senior year will be the year I actually make a change. This really hit a cord and had my mind set on going harder when the pain hits. After every race I think about Xander and how he would be so postive during all the hard times, even tho today was an amazing day. There are gonna be hard times this season but im ready for when they come and im going to fight harder then I have ever done for my team.

recently I have been feeling way tired. I come to the thought that my body has been pushing itself to much but u have just come to the realization that this is where people become either great or stay where they are. After a crazy hard workout at bloominton i puked and that was the first time I have ever done that after a work out. I really did push myself on that last 5:30 rep but I still felt that I had more in the tank. Till next time 

Positive: 

  • Finished the workout 

  • Blogging again

  • Getting needed extra sleep

that tempo was crazy at the end and something clicked and I was able to push like i have never been able to push before!! I even led the pack for alot of it and it felt great. leading up to it i felt alot of negative ideas in my head but i just ignored them as i kept running. one major thought was what am i gonna do when coach tells me to catch up to the guys so i told myself that im not gonna fall back so coach wont even have to talk to me.

Postive: 

  • Had one of the most postive runs of my life

  • Pushed when the pain arose and it didnt even feel that bad

really tired today as we ran the afternoon run in the burning hot sun. the legs have been very tight but im rolling and trying to keep them loose. really slow run because everyone seemed to be way tired so towards mid way nathen mikey and I started pushing the pace to a semi decent pace but a huge gap arose so that didnt help. 

 

Postive:

  • Didnt die of heat stroke

First ever varsity race today. I was kinda nervous leading up to the race but i felt really confident going into the first mile. We had a really good group for the first 800 but then it just kinda fell apart. I really didnt have a racing mindset like i should have. I just go out there and try to run hard but i need to give it more then that. I gotta catch people and not stay settle with where I am. Not gonna lie I dont think i passed on dude after the first mile. Im really bummed with that but i now know what i need to do and get more focused in the race and not be scared to hurt. I should be up with nathen and i shouldnt even stop there. coach was talking about how a good team needs to have 3 all star runners but we need more then that for the goals we want to accomplish. We need a group of 7 guys that have each others backs when it hurts most. I failed today but I won't let  it happen again for the team.

Postive:

  • Ran an ok time i think.. dont really know what it was haha

  • Strong first mile

  • Shoe almost came off but didnt't, next time im gonna triple knot that sucker

Good chill long run this morning! Had a good set of 8x100 hills towards the end that felt really good and hard! A really deep thought came up in my mind tho on the afternoon run tho. Coach has been talking alot about running for the team and not for yourself and that has been one thing that I have been struggling with lately. Its really hard to push for the team when you dont feel apart of it. I've been really struggling with feeling respected and included in activitys with the team. People only really respect you or talk to you if your the top dog. But there really isnt much I can do besides just trying to smile at people that ignore me and hope something changes. I'm just trying to find the postives in each day to make my life a good one!

Positive:

  • Getting to know my group memebers really well and Dane and I say hi all the time!

  • Had a really good morning run.

  • Drinking plenty of water so I dont die in the afternoons

really feeling tired during the runs today both am and pm. The afternoon run is what really got me. The sun was way killer and it was really beatting down on the team and I. I could tell that everyone was way dehydrated and way tired. The moment I got back i ran to my water bottle and just poured half of it on myself to cool off. Man it was a killer run.

Positive:

  • Didn't die from heat stroke :)

  • Had semi good form on the way back.

Today was a much needed workout!! my mental running was really bad coming into this week and I was always down on myself when it came to running, but this workout changed my whole mind and I was able to push myself again to where I needed to push! All the sets went really good and I was even able to push alex on one of the last ones! Really a great day with the guys and I feel like my life is becoming happier as I get to know the guys more and more! got home and passed out for a good 2 hours and ready for another great day!
