After a short little hiatus I am back. Figures there's no better time than after Bob Firman. Jamie put me in the Varsity race instead of the Elite race which admittedly made me pretty angry but I kept it to myself and let it motivate me to prove myself. Looking at past years results if I wanted to medal and get top 20 I was going to need to get a 16:55 or lower which I knew I could do. Race started off fast, like really fast, I was in about 50th at mile 1 and it was a 5:11. I wanted to start out reserved and then pass everyone that started out too fast, and that's exactly what I did. Through the second mile it was a game of passing and closing. Second mile was a 5:21 so I slowed down a bit from the first but it was much more consistent than I normally am, also PR'ed my 2 mile with a 10:32 lol. I ran past Jamie right after the two mile and she gave me a count but I wasn't sure if she said 26th or 36th. I went with 36 and knew I had to start passing and making moves fast. Moved well through the third mile and once I got to the hill it was all or nothing to get in the top 20, right before the final u-turn Jamie told me I had to catch green. Except there were two green jersey's in front of me. One was farther ahead than the other so he became the target, kicked it in hard and ended up with 19th and feel confident knowing that I know what works for me.

Mileage is currently at 6,7,8 and I probably won't up it for the rest of this season which is a bummer:( 7 miles today legs were feeling pretty tight from racing and long bus rides but it felt good to see a distance run average under 8 lol (even if it was by 2 seconds). Attempted to do a plank for all of abs but was rudely interrupted by Satchell, also ended with a pair of supernova glides which is kinda neat.

6 minute test and I was determined to get 2000m. Started out way too fast with a 62 400m split lol, pace dropped a lot in second lap and around the 700m mark I started to feel a poking in my left spike, got so bad I had to take my spike off in the middle of the workout which was awkard. Continued on with I think an 82 third lap so that was slow. Mile split was a 4:44 which meant all it was going to take was a 76 last lap to get 200m. Well I was about 8 meters short of the line at 6 minutes :/ Finished mileage out to 4 so I wouldn't get any blisters then abs and hips

Speed again, workout was 200 400 800 1600 800 400 200. 2 and 4 at current mile pace 8 and 16 at goal 5k. Had to run this one without Chris and Mike which was a little odd not having anyone to chase, splits were 32, 72, 3:32, 5:02, 2:23, 67, 29. Was still feeling surprisingly good halfway through the mile so I started to drop the paces for the rest of the workout. Glad to have a good workout after yesterdays flop. Abs, hips, lots of rolling out and an ice bath to recover well.

Hip flexor is kinda bothering me, I'm thinking it's from running uneven in the 6 minute test on Tuesday. Legs are feeling a little tired but overall not too bad. The 800 was a 2:30 and didn't feel like it was that out of reach but we shall see. Only went 5 because of the hip flexor, hips and abs

Legs were feeling pretty sore when doing the warm up which had me a little concerned about hwo the race was going to go. Did strides and loosened up a bit then started off reserved or what I thought was reserved but first mile a 5:20 and it felt much faster. Slowed down the second and third miles a lot. It was really hard to get up to speed on this course, sharp turns everywhere made it really dificult. Time was okay but I know I can do better and that I have to next week at region
