26 Weeks until state…
1:51 49.1 4:18
Top 3 at state in the 800
All American in DMR. Run at NC Adidas Outdoor champs individually.
Workout: I did it backwards, and boy do I regret it.
10km Run…My right ankle began to give me problems and i want to say it’s because I wasn’t focusing on that foot. It pronates, and I was letting it overpronate to the max, when I consciensously (sp) pulled my arch up just a bit, I didn’t get any problems from my ankle the rest of the run.
OUCH!! oh god, it hurts all over… abs, quads, shoulders. I can’t breath… I’m never doing my weight work before my runs again.
Workout: Coach decided a while ago to have a 2mile time trail, I really didn’t expect to do well, and I didn’t. I ran about 10:44, which is okay, but not spectacular. No where on par with my half-mile. shrugs I guess last friday my 2:05 half mile wasn’t that bad. Came through in 58, all by myself… and I wussed out the last lap.
Workout: 7 miles easy. Mark FINALLY joined me today, I told him he didn’t have to keep up with me all the time, but he danmed well better try. More importantly, he has to show up and be ready to run every time I am… shrugs brothers, gah. My ankle and arch didn’t give me any problems.
Workout: 7 miles easy, with good 300m finish. It was a great run I got a little muddy in the fields… heh heh… "lil’ "… heh… Anyway, my ankle and arch were fine, My right calve was a little stressed, though. I’m glad I’m taking Saturday and Sunday off, no big eeel.
Workout: 7 Miles easy, baby. Man These new shoes feel like I’m running in a sand box. My knees, IT band, and achiles/calves are all really sore. I’ve never had this problem with asics before I wonder why.
Well about 1/3 of the way through the XC season I was desperate for a pair of shoes, the quality Asics were not in stock, so I got a pair of Nike’s that looked and felt similar to the asics I was comfortable with. When I got this new pair of asics I thought the ride felt pretty soft.
Well long story short, I walked around in them today, to well, kill the cushion. And the run today felt great. Maybe the shoes just needed a little breaking in. I think 1-2 days walking should be how I transition to new shoes from now on.
Workout: I did 3 miles easy, than 4x200 (easy) on the track w/200 jog followed by another 2 miles easy, all without stopping. So that’s a 7 miler today, not bad
All the junk that hurt yesterday, it didn’t hurt nearly at all. My right ankle kind of whispered at me, but not any louder than normal, and definately didn’t hurt anywhere near as much as yesterday.
I went to the fields for a 7+ miler. It felt pretty good. My knee gave me a bit of a tingle, but my ankle was fine and other little twinges didn’t bother me much at all. My calves got tight, though, I stopped with 3/4 of a mile to stretch them.
I went to a party tonight… I’m dead, Ugh. Anyway, before I left, I ran a 7 miler up and down the road on the pavement. It was pretty easy, and I got my brother to run with me too.
