Good long run today could definitely feel the awesome workout and strength from yesterday. Started off with the mother and then headed into cascades and then shuniah. Ended on the conveyor belt and went OT for the final week of SOS. Would scream « energy » when I needed a boost up the hills. I also pretended I was a video game character while running over the uneven surfaces to find the quickest way through. Fun times!

Good run today. I was embracing the wise words of deena kastor on the run. at one point my foot got tight and I thought “good thing it’s 4feet from your heart”. I get strong and in control today and was thanking heather for the challenge and pushing me. During the last lap was thinking “dare to be brave.” Mindset was good still room for improvement would like to have run the last loop a bit faster.

Felt the work from yesterday today. Felt better in the afternoon than at the start of my shakeout this morning. I let Maxie and Tierza go so I could just bop along. My lower legs are nice and tired so I spent some time rolling them adn iced after practice. Talked to Kip about my race yesterday and I need to not let my ego get in the way of running my best. I had my excuses lined up and because of that I ran hard but not to my best. The percieved effort was high but the speed wasnt there because I was working hard. Need to also not ping pong and continue to work on challenge=fun

Active WU
6km trail race
2 x 3km loop cooldown

Today I was getting all excited for the race and embracing the experience, but once the gun went off my mind went into panic mode. I am glad I ran it because it was telling of where I am mentally with racing. The first lap was a constant battle between "I feel bad, I don't want to do this, why am I so far behind the other women?" and "this is what I want, eyes up and be competitive, don't think, just go." The second lap was better my eyes were up and I was working on running down the people ahead. There points where I wanted to back off but would tell myself "This is where it matters. 5 quick steps." I felt like I was working hard but the legs weren't moving fast. Feeling emotional afterwards and also need to refocus on my goals.

“The main way to learn is by falling flat on our face, just as we did when we first learned to walk. Our parents may tell us a million times not to touch that hot stove, but it’s only after we actually burn ourselves that we really understand why it’s not such a great idea.” -Kristen Neff
