Preact with lower leg walks
balance and glute activation
3 x (3, 2, 1) with 1' between reps and 2' between sets
sit and push
glute band exercises
Today was another step in the right direction. The legs still feel uncoordinated and unpowerful but that is reality. I can hope it will go away but right now that's not productive and I need to be able to run well despite not feeling smooth. Had lots of moments of doubt but didn't listen to them the way I have recently. It feels good to get in some more running workouts.
Pool Workout 45:00  4.5 km (10:00 / km)

Okey dokie ball
6mins swimming and kick
2 x (15, 30, 45, 60, 60, 45, 30, 15)
DWR to 45
Today was pretty good had some struggling moments to work through throughout the pool workout worked pretty hard in the swim today! Hr was 29 after the intervals. Strides felt uncoordinated and slow, but not painful. My leg feels like it could give it sometimes. Seeing Shane this morning to hopefully work something out.
Pool Workout 40:00  4.0 km (10:00 / km)
nice deep water run with rebekkah.

Lower leg walks
17 CD with 2 hill strides
Today was a step in the right direction. I went out and ran and stuck with the group for the most part. I used the others to get better. My legs felt a little incodrinated but there is no sharp pain anymore. I had some negative thoughts but didn’t succumb to them like I have been recently.
Cycling 10:00  1.0 km (10:00 / km)
Strength 15:00 
2 x 8 RFEs (10, 25, 25)
2 x 15s A-skip
2 x 8 band push
2 x 8 plyo push-ups
There is a strength discrepancy in my right leg. The 25s were hard but not as hard as they could be with the left leg, but the right leg was rather challenging. I need to work on my strength and stability throughout the right leg/glute
Elliptical 2:00:00  12.0 km (10:00 / km)
Stretch & Roll
This was the longest elliptical to date. I went later in the day when the gym was less busy so I wouldn't hold up people while staying on fro an hour straight. Ran a little when I watched my dad race and leg is feeling better, still off but progress is happening.
Elliptical 30:00 
Did this after dinner. Wasn't really wanting to go but once I got moving I enjoyed it.
Running 51:00  10.2 km (5:00 / km)
Sit and push
Woke up and the leg wasn't too bad. I did a fair amount of walking in the morning which helped loosen things up. My stride felt clunky and off for the first 10 min or so of the run, but by the end it felt more even. My dad came with me on the bike and we had some good chats. We talked about how I've lost some of the joy of racing I had when I first started running and how I can harbour that same energy again. I do this sport because I love it and it makes me feel good. My ego has been getting in the way of that so it is time to let go and just go run and enjoy myself.
Running 1:20:00  16.0 km (5:00 / km)
15 min WU
8km race (33:01)
This was a struggle. I had many thoughts coursing through my head that were not serving me in a productive way. My head was telling me to drop out ,to stop competitive running. It was asking me what's the point, I'm too heavy, too slow, too injured to run fast. These are just my insecurities getting in the way of me performing my best. Instead of being engaged on moving on to the next person and running down girls I was focused on telling myself that I was a bad runner and should just run for fun. My goal than became just finish. I am really struggling right now with my running, but I know I have to just keep with it and keep working on what we've been talking about. It is going to be hard and uncomfortable but it is going to make me stronger. I can either grow from the struggles and doubts I'm having or I can let them take over and remove me the sport I love. I knew these thoughts were coursing through my head and that I should just ignore them and "Just Run" but I chose to wallow and feel sorry for myself. I didn't go with Maxie or Hailee when they moved up I doubted my ability and felt sorry for myself. I will work on going with them and sticking with them in workouts as well as thinking about situations like these throughout the day to familiarize myself with the uncomfortable feeling and saying FIJG and embracing the hard. Feeling sorry for myself never feels good in the end, but being braving and going for it feels much more fulfilling. I need to understand that those thoughts will be there, but my best performance will depend on how I react to those thoughts. I tried my best post race to not be a downer and get upset and be supportive of my teammates. I don't know if it came across as support, but I didn't want my less than mediocre performance and my own problems to bring down my teammates.
