like i actually loved it and it was my fav run of all time! robs asked if we should turn onto a woodchip trail or keep going on the paved so i told him paved and we kept going and then all of the sudden somebody said to go on the trail so we had to turn around and run on the dumb trail. it was fine but ruined the best run of my life :/</p> Sat, 05 May 2018 06:00:00 Fri, May 04, 2018 <p>am- lil run</p> <p>pm- warmed up 10 and raced. not a super fast time but my best time all season so i was glad to be doing a lil better. i feel like i work even harder than last year and it just isnt giving me the results i thought id see. partied w/ py later and we got to share a room for the first time and it was the best thing everrrrrrrrrrr!!!&nbsp;</p> Fri, 04 May 2018 06:00:00 Thu, May 03, 2018 <p>am- 40 minutes w/ my fav addib :)) quick, good run</p> <p>pm- short run w/ a few striders. like addi said in her blog, everyone was yelling but in my opinion the yelling was for a very good reason. i wont tell the full story cuz that would take forever and plus id get riled up again so.... anyway, all of the boys in math say im the &quot;little sister&quot; therefore they try to make me mad and/or dont talk to me (occasionaly theyre nice to me). one of them who usually isnt the dumbest one knew exactly what to say to make me mad and he started going off on how running isnt a sport. well basically that was the stupidest thing ive ever heard in my whole life. he told me running requires no skill or hard work whatsoever and you dont even have to do any form work like you might have to in like tennis (his sport) or basketball or something. 1st of all to be a good runner you have to work you butt off, 2nd we never stop trying to improve our form, everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. he said lots more stuff and i was about ready to punch him in the face. k then i was goin down to the locker room and i saw corbin and addi. i asked them if they thought running was a sport and of course they said yes and then i started telling them the whoooooooooooooooole story which riled me up very much. meanwhile colton and rylee had joined the party and listened to how upset i was. then i went into the locker room and was telling the girls in there the story right as jada walked in YELLING ABOUT HOW HE HAD SAID THE EXACT SAME THING TO HER. then we were both upset and yelling and then gracie and pyper walked in and were yelling cuz a teacher had been saying THE SAME THING. basically we all had the same experience today and we were all mad and yelling. after awhile we all chilled out and the funny thing is the the boy who said that stuff does think running is a sport and he just said that to make us mad. congrats buddy, youve succeeded. the rest of the run was real good and the kids meet was good too. k peace, hope you enjoyed my fun story of the day.</p> Thu, 03 May 2018 06:00:00 Wed, May 02, 2018 <p>am- short lil run through the scary neighborhoods&nbsp;</p> <p>pm- 30 min easy run. ran out to water wheel park and came back through sandbergs. played in the stream for a sec.&nbsp;also me and py talked about our youtube plan where we become rich and famous haha. real good run! funnest run in awhile. its nice to just not worry about the time or the pace and to just go have a fun run every once in awhile&nbsp;:)</p> <p>much better, non traumatic day today lol. also the sr ball assembly was today and brook escorted alex and it was rlly cute :&#39;) also there were sooooooooo many cute lil children escorting their siblings and it was prolly the cutest thing ever i think</p> Wed, 02 May 2018 06:00:00 Tue, May 01, 2018 <p>am- exercises, leg machine thingy and a short run.</p> <p>pm- good workout in the rainnnnn hahahh. 10 warm, 5 @ easy tempo and then 3*600m @cv pace all w/ 2 min rec, 4*400m @ 3-4 seconds faster than 1600 pace w/ 2 min rec, 4*100m @ 400 pace w/ 2 min rec on 3 and then full on the last one,&nbsp;and then 1*300m @ f-pace, cooled for like 10 minutes after to get to 65 minutes. the rain was freezing and we were completely drenched but it made the workout a lil easier cuz we recovered a lot faster. also since my shirt was soaked it weighed like a billion pounds and down the last 100 meter stretch the wind hit us harddddddd but we altered where we started and avoided it for the most part. pretty satisfied with this workout,&nbsp;it was a good one! i usually dont do to well on the sprints but i stuck in there and tried my very hardest. good workout w/ lottttttttttttts of positives :))</p> <p>also i had a very traumatic experience at school today and its to hard to write on here or get the full story experience so hmu if ya wanna hear it. no joke i think imma need some counselling after today&nbsp;</p> Tue, 01 May 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 30, 2018 <p>am- 60 minute mid distance run. got to do turkey farm which is my favvvvv run !!
