pm- idk my mileage cuz I forgot to wear my watch lol but gooooooood run. death run today and it was good. i went out not looking to win but to have a good paced run and stay in for awhile. kept a good pace throughout and worked on my form. it still looked pretty terrible I feel like, but I tried. I was just gonna go out after ness but then I sprinted a whole lap and passed caroline to stay in for one more. finished up the run w/ ry towards artic circle cuz everybody else left and ry came back 4 me hahaha. ry's a rlly fun person to talk to. oh and my knees were killllllllllin on the rest of the run. 

oh I got knew classes today and I have some good ones but I couldn't be more #mad rn. me and ry had the best spanish class on the earth and we had sooooooo much fun and senor looooooved us hahahah. any way we're in different classes now and it rlly sucks. that's all

pm- idk my mileage once again but that will change shortly. 6 minute test today. it was decent. i most definently didnt do good but i didnt do suuuuuuuuuuper bad i guess. during i felt pretty good. my arms hurt a lot and my knees just a little but after and before my knees were absolutely KILLING MEEEEEEEEEEEEE. they hurt soooooooooooooo bad especially on striders. thats ok ill get back into it. im ready for a good season of track.

Total Distance

pm- 75 minutes w/ a few pickups

well today was rlly good and i was finally gonna know my mileage buuuuuuuuuuuut i pulled out my watch right before practice and.... it was dead :/ #bummer but hopefully it'll be allllllllllllll ready 4 tomorrow. todays run was rllllllllllllllly good. turkey farm is my absolute fav run and i especially love it when its cloudy up on top. 

it was rlly cold outside today and i was #notprepared so i did warmups in my sweatshirt so when we left to go run i was like "ah i gotta go put away my jackettttttt cuz i cant run in this" so i hurried and went to put it away. meanwhile everybody left and we yelled at them to wait but apparently no one heard cuz no one stopped :/ me and ry eventually caught up to some of the girls (including caroline, gracie and jada) and ran w/ them for awhile and then me ry and caroline just ran together. gooooooooooood conversation the whole way and a real good run.

oh and my knees hurt at first but then they felt better and then i told coach about um hurtin and he reminded me of the stretches my mom showed me and told me to do them. that was very helpful cuz i literally forgot allllllllllllllllll about those but now i remember and will do um.

oh and the way out felt suuuuuuuuuuper good and then we flipped and it was freeeeeeeeeeeeeezing

k thats all byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

pm- shortish trail run todayyyyyyyyy. not a fan of trails as some of you may know...but i actually enjoyed today. dont get me wrong, i rlly love nature and such, i just dont like runnin on the dirt and rocks and trippin' all the time ya know. even more than trail runs i hate hiking, a lottttttttttttttt. thats one reason why i reallllllllllllllllly love four wheelin cuz i can be out in nature, go rllllllllly fast and i dont have to even touch the dirt or rocks or trip at all. anyway today was good. only one knee hurt today, buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it never went away like it did yesterday so that was kindof a #bumma but i think its fine. fun talking w/ add and then ry, py and robs on the way back. theyre good people.

i sorta played guitar a lil bit today. all we did was learn how to hold it an learn about the strings and such but i didnt hate it so thats good. oh but my fingers killlllllllllllllllllllllll

k bye

am- idk how many miles cuz i just had my watch on timer mode buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut about 80 minutes out on suicidal tendencies. lots of the guys showed up but only me add, ry and py showed up for the girls. thats alright tho cuz i actually rlly like smaller group runs cuz its fun to talk and stuff ya know. i tripped prolly like 17 times but luckily only fell once. i scraped up my knees and they were bleeding and stuff but they didnt hurt. howeverrrrrrrrrr i also fell on my hands and they like didnt get scraped at all but they killllllllllllllled. ate some delicious donuts after and then went home. oh also we saw some hells on the trail

am- weights and 15 minute run. benched for the first time in awhile and my arms hurt soooooooo soooooooooo much but its a good kinda hurt that makes ya feel good even tho ur arms hurt if ya know what i mean hahahah

pm- 50 minutes into washington. real good run but my knees were KILLING MEEEEEEEEEEEEE. usually its my tendonitus that hurts but today it was like my bones and stuff. i guess when i fell yesterday i mustve hit my knees pretty hard on the rocks cuz they rllllllllllllllllly hurt. it especially hurts to stand up and stuff. toughed it out tho and did all the run. just me ness ry and robs for the whole thing but it was good.

oh also we started some new warm up things today and i like um. i wanna get better and be faster and i think these are gonna help quite a bit

oh also, today was a rlly good day. then in the last 2 minutes of school james and mitch took my waterbottle and put soap in my water and sprayed cleaner into the top of it. that made me a little mad but now ive decided that i think its actually fine and ill just clean it and we'll be ok. just know that you should never do that to someone cuz its kinda mean i think

one more thing...go search john butler ocean on youtube and then watch the video that comes up. im gonna be like him when i grow up

actually prolly not but itd actually be pretty dope to shred like he does hahah

pm- got left again so 10 warm by myself :'( then the same workout as last week. it was alright. i did notice however that my tendonitus gets better throughout the week to where it isnt hurting constantly and thennnnnnnnnnnnnnn workout wednesday comes and the first part of the workout is good and then by the end im limping and then on thursday the whole run is a painful limp. next week ill prolly cut out a bit. i dont rlly know what to do other then what im already doing. iced after as well

harold tried to be mean to me on purpose so id put him in my blog but i cant remember even what he did but ill make his dreams come true anyway

oh today was good cuz even tho i was late to ceramics and mr papa got mad at me, i centered my clay on the wheel today and he said that im one of the kids whos "ahead of the game" so thats cool cuz i usually suck at things like that haha

oh also i finally (after waiting like 3 months) put my school record into the record thingy today!!! that was cool

oh one more thing haha. i finally decided to wear short socks to school and it was a terrible decision that i regret very much cuz my shoes rubbed a whole lot and then when i went running it started bleeding and it rllllllllllllllllllllly hurt

k thats all byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

am- weights, exercises and skipped out on the run cuz my knees are #killing me today :((

pm- sprint warmups, distance warmups, jumpy fast thingys and beast and feast thennnn 30 minutes on the football field with alli and boston. iced after too. i rlly hate cutting minues but ive realized that ive been icing and doing exercises for 4 months and ive still got tendonitus. obviously its not working so i better try somethin else. also i think im starting to get plantar fasciitis in my left arch so that sucks and i might get some inserts to help that

s/o to alex g hill cuz hes an adult todayyyyyyyyyy!!

pm- pretty sucky day tbh as for the running part i mean. just everything that could be going wrong kinda is but #glad that its happening now and now a week before state cuz right now i have time to just get allllllllllllllllllllllll better. the run itself wasnt bad. ran over to the middle school and did like 10 minutes of tempo (w/ no stops cuz stopping rlly hurts my knees) and then ran back. 30 minutes or so and thats it. my knees hurt the more i went and my arches and left achilles hurt at the end. also my shin hurt just a little while walking to the trainers office but i think itll be fine. #hoping i can get all better quick

on a more "positive" note... school was good. i did bad on a test but i did good in ceramics and spanishhhhhh. also i had cake w/ my lunch and thats alwayssssssssss good :))

after reading this now go read addib's blog cuz itll make you be happy :)

am- 38 or so minutes haha. knees werent hurting too bad but i didnt want to make anything worse. other than that nothing rlly hurt today so thats good. ran at ell's with jenna, alli brown, sylvia, addi, ell, ry and py. all of them went 50 so i had to run back alone which was kinda #sad but it was good. rlly wished alli or caroline came so i could run back with them but it was fine hahah. had about 10 or so minutes before the girls got back so i just went to the park by ell's house and did exercises and stretched. tried to do some more single leg squats but i could only do um on my left leg cuz my right knee still hurts reallllll bad to bend from falling on monday haha. also it was raining and it was rlly cold but i also like running in the rain so it was fun. then ellies mom made us tonnnnnnnnnnnnns of waffles and bacon and hot chocolate and now im chilling by the fire at my home writing this lovely blog

just thought id add what ive been up to today just in case your interested lol.... me and brook played minecraft for a little over 6 hours and watched like 10 home videos hahahah. also it rained alllllllllllllllll day long and i #rlllllllllllllllllllllly love the rain so today was good

pm- "long run" today... definently a "long run" for what ive been doin the past few days, but rlly not long at all.

prolly around 53 or so minutes w/ alli baker, ness, and ry. knees werent hurtin super bad but ive noticed when i go real long when they arent hurtin too bad...then they rlly start to hurt. still gonna take it easy for a few more days even tho im feelin a bit better cuz i usually feel a bit better and then all of the sudden i cant run again. (hopefully that made a little sense haha) iced when i got back and then almost froze to death hahaha and then went home

oh also both my arches were bugging me today


Total Distance

am- weights, exercises and icingggg

pm- ran mustang pass. i usually #hate mustang pass as it is my very least favorite trail run...however, today i quite enjoyed it tbh. 43 minutes by myself basically. bro i felt like i was goin so fast buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut #slow run today. i guess its not too slow for a trail but i sure didnt like how it looked on my watch lol. got back a lil early so i ran around the neighborhood for like 7 minutes or so. knees felt pretty good today !! however they did start to hurt when i flipped then they felt better and then towards the end they hurt quite a bit. oh my stomach hurt tho due to not packing a very big lunch due to forgeting to make it last night and then waking up late but it wasnt anything that "held me back" or anything haha. overall reallllllllllll good run

later---its been a few hours since ive blogged and i forgot a few things.

1st since i blogged earlier my right heel has started hurting and a muscle kinda by my shin. but im gonna ice and roll in a sec so hopefully it goes away

also i wanted to s/o jenna cuz she is doing soooooooooooooo good !! i love watching her run everyday !! she pushes herself to do her best all of the time and i just thought that was cool :))

pm- workout wednesday today but did a "modified" workout half w/ alli baker and half w/ coach. idk what the deal was today. the first part of the day i had lots of energy and such and then today in math everybody just struggled. i all of the sudden felt soooooooooooooooooooo tired and caleb even fell asleep (hahah and it was pretty funny tbh). got out to practice at like 52 and layed on the turf for like 15 minutes. finally felt awake once we warmed up and i felt all better haha. workout was pretty good. modifing it made my knees not hurt as much as they usually do which was good but they definently still hurt for most of the workout. 2*(3 min tempo, 2 min thresh, 2 min cv w/ equal recovery) one set w/ al and one with coach. not rlly hard but knees did hurt a bit. cooled down and then iced. oh also when i iced i was coloring my beautiful picture that i had worked hard on in seminary. meanwhile jose was tying my shoelaces together and then rylee dumped both of her ice bags on my head which got my twistables all wet, got me and my hair all wet, and ruined my beautiful picture :(( then some nice people were helping me up and i accidentally smacked my head on the rail and it hurt very much. were having good dinner tonight tho so im happy again. thats all. have a good day :))

am- weights, exercises and iced

pm- idk mileage but about 47 minutes or so 4 me today. honestly felt sooooooooooo good considering how i feel on most thursdays. usually i can do like half of the run and im limping the whole run but today i felt tremendously better. knees still hurt, but not even close to how much they usually do. "hillyish" run today as we went and checked out our hill circuit thingy that were gonna do sometimes. good pace (i think) the whole time and form feeled pretty good. solid run today

oh also some part in my left leg was feelin real weird at school and parts of the run like it was gonna give out on me so that kinda sucked

also today i established that jenna and kylee are my favs

Total Distance

pm- most miles 4 quite awhile lol but glad im kinda getting back up there. went over to the middle school so tempo repeats. altered my workout a bit tho and did 8 minutes of tempo w/ 2 min recovery and then 7 minutes of tempo and then jogged around w/ robs for like 10 minutes and headed back. last week i only did 10 minutes of tempo and this time i was tryna get up to 20 so i was gonna do a 5 min rep after the 7 but the last few minutes of the 7 were killin my knees so i decided i better call it quits. 

side note: school was real good today and then at lunch a few people, who i will leave unnamed, filled my waterbottle and the water in it, with chocolate milk and hand sanitizer. i was actually pretty upset the rest of the day because i like to be hydrated and also cuz thats just kind of a dumb thing to do to someone who youre supposed to be friends with :/ eventually i wasnt super mad but yeah just dont do that.

also me and logan preformed in guitar for the first time today and it was rlly scary but we got air heads after so it was #worthitttttt

oh also tonight was the first night ive ever had fun and actually cheered good at a basketball game hahahah :)) annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd we almost won...but then we didnt

pm- 60 w/ ness. knees felt pretty good today. i can definently feel them improving which makes me very happy cuz i gotta get back on the grind soon haha. did about 40 on the road and then did like 20 on the turf, barefoot. a little #sad cuz turkey farm is my fav and i didnt get to go to far up but it was still a real good time. i love runnin w/ ness, shes my real good buddy :)). hip was bothering me a bit at the first but felt better as we went on. also my arches are starting to bother me even more. they dont hurt as much as they have in the past, but rn in my home as i walk around they hurt a lottttttttt. #sad cuz i actually rlly dont want to get inserts and wear running shoes to school even tho i used to everyday hahaha. besides the minor aches and pains felt pretty good today thats all byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

oh today was real good. 1st it was a short day, 2nd me and ry and carofine had costa vida 4 lunch, and 3rd in math we concentrated real good and i actually know whats going on and got some problems right !!
