5 out on the trails. I had no time to cool down yesterday after my races and my legs were shot from prom. We partyed(partied? party'd?) for a while then Trevor, Korbin, and I and our dates and went to KG's house to watch a scary movie. We ended up watching "Hush" bc it was rated 5 stars on netflix(one review), and to anyone reading this; don't watch it. It was one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen, def. worst in the horror genre. On the drive to drop our dates off Trevor and I just made fun of the movie. I rated it one star right before I left on the run. I felt okay during it, it was super windy and the trails were tough. Top of my foot hurt again and when I got out of my car after driving home my knee hurt a bit but then it faded. UPDATE: researched foot pain, likely from lacing my shoes(I started lacing my peg's really tightly around a week ago) and webmd said it to be nothing serious.

Warm-up and strengthening. About 20 billion strides up the bleachers, then we partnered up. I paired with Mason, then we did 6 hill sprints carrying each other on our backs, then 3 sets of 10 squats with him on my back. Then 50 partner clap push-ups, S/O to Mason for doing girl pushups for all of them haha. 2 lap cooldown. For everyone not racing at dez hills invite over the weekend we're having a region tri meet @ Uintah, and I'm announcing it. After Zack and Connor's legacy's that they've left announcing I know I gotta bring my best. Also my dad got my 3200 splits and he said I hit the 2800 at 9:20, which means my last lap was 75, which I'm happy with.

Ran down the rec road about an hour later to add to 5. My quads were dead at first but I felt really good towards the end, that's how the rec road run always goes.

Today was rough. Mile warmup, then 30 minute tempo. After about two thirds of a mile I got tired of 6:30 pace and sped up quite a bit. by 10 minutes my quads felt hammered from the steady uphill, but I had about a minute lead on the other 5 guys. A little later I turned right as planned, and after a minute turned back just to see how close mon freres were, and I saw them going str8 instead! I turned around but as I turned around I got hit with mad stomach cramps. I couldn't get my legs moving too well after that. I caught Jordan and got closer to the other four but they were quite far ahead after I turned around and I couldn't get them, I just felt like trash after turning around. Barefoot cooldown on the turf. Coaches want everyone to race at the meet tomorrow so Varsity can get a good workout in. I find that pretty dumb, yesterday was pretty dang hard and today was difficult as well. I wonder why all the distance records have been set in stone since the 80's. S/) to Collin for finally putting me on his fav's after meeting and finishing with him at footlocker lol

During my TA hour Coaches and I headed to the track and started to set up the meet. Coaches asked if I wanted to help a bit more. I said sure, I was having a good time, and so Henderson called the school and had me excused for the rest of the day. I set up the meet with them for the next 4 hours. It was sick, I felt like a kid who was staying home on a sick day but wasn't ill. Announcing was super lit, plus I didn't have to race because of it. I was inches away from being kicked out, I had to be talked to twice. My friend who's last name is McDonald raced the hurdles and tripped, and I said "old mcdonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-Ow" I felt bad lol. It was a lot of fun, I also had an phone interview with USU for the internship and it went quite swimmingly. I didn't end up starting my run until 9 PM. 7 with strides from the rec past rehab down mainstreet. Passed enough pedestrians vaping it was like I was in a middle school or something lol

Finally an adult, it means nothing lol. Like 50 people signed up for D hills 3200 overnight. I'm ranked 24th out of 63, and I really really really hope I get in the fast heat because like 2/3 of the people faster than me have unverified times and I really want to make that fast heat and get another solid PR. 

Easy 2 miles on the track during lunch with strides. Hurdle flexibility after. Aaron and I got my tennis rackets and hit some balls around on the field which was fun. Add belieber4lief on SC for some shenanigan stories.

Ran around a bit once I arrived at the meet. I was in heat 5, ranked 4th. I knew I could win that by a margin. Once the girls heats end I go to the restroom, come out, and coach literally grabs me and freaks out and says "you're running now!" I assure him I'm not, but still I run over to the tent, grab my spikes, and run to the track. Turns out I got moved into heat three! I literally didn't stretch or stride at all. I run to the official and profusely apologize and he lets me put on my spikes. No lucky socks or shorts. I jump on the line and start maybe 5 seconds later. I ran sockless and it didn't feel good. I beelined in to a good position, maybe 5th. 3 guys immediately separated, and by 300 they died and I took the lead lol. I gave an "I'm so screwed lol" wink to sage the bell ringer, and sped up a bit. 400 at 68. 600 at 1:42. I got passed right about at 700 but that guy won by like 8 seconds so it's Cool. As soon as he passed me though my legs shut off. The non existent warmup struck with anger. Last lap two more guys pass me, Aaron being one of them. Really didn't finish too well. Season PR but I really think I shoulda qualified for BYU, I was 3 seconds off. Alli P came and talked to me after and so I met her and Vis(no holt:( ) I also saw the warbeast but idk if he recognized me. Really excited for the 3200 tomorrow, I WAS ranked 4th in heat 2 but with the mashing hopefully I'm in the quick one now. Sub 10 or bust, my dudes! If I get a warmup, of course. 3 cooldown. Fun meet so far.

Fun time. 2 WU. I had a basically perfect, conserved first mile, then it went kinda crazy. It went 78, 78, 78, 78, 79, 81, 83, 78. I ran with Mikey from PV and he ran smart but the lead pack we passed a few time had crazy surges. With 1000m left they made a surge and I told myself I'd catch them but didn't. Lame, but a PR. Love St geezy but didn't like this track, spikes didn't stick a bit. 2 CD with Riley and Kedric. He ran 10:43, atta kid. All four of the uintah boys ran sub 11 so that was sweet.

2 miles later. I had a pretty good talk with Hell Raiser and a couple others. I found Holt who has hair, I didn't imagine that haha. I didn't freaking meet Sage though which is ridiculous because I actually talked to him before hand about meeting up
