Happy with this race today! Felt awful in the morning after not sleeping most of the night for whatever reason. I just could not seem to find sleep for some odd reason. The only time I can remember when I was not awake was from 11-12 and 5-6. Anyways I had a small nap after breaky and felt a bit better. Put that aside for the race and got out and remember making moves and just going with it the whole time. I remember thinking that even though I was in pain that racing is just so much more fun when you just decide to go for it! Haven't had that feeling on the track in a while. Felt pretty good about myself after I made my way through the pack and found myself riding in sight of Rebekkah's tail. She did get some extra distance on me again in the last 400m's. A lot of fun with this today and felt pretty empty by the time I got to the line and found it took me a while to recover. I really like the 15 right now :)

This was meh. We were pretty puzzled with the times as we felt we had put in close to the same effort as we had 2 weeks ago. Got a bit spooked after going through the first lap in a 37 when I knew that we were supposed to go through in a 42. Backed off a bit after that which was lame. Got to thinking too much about pace goals and before I knew it I was creeping far in the back again. I was hurting a lot in the middle and into the last K so I thought we were on pace to PB again and remember thinking "Good for Paigie! Having a stellar race". When someone yelled 10:08 on the last lap I remember having a brief "wtf?" Anyways...clearly too much thinking and not enough racing today. Next time I am just going to put myself in a trans again and just stick with what I went out with...just glue myself to another human being...make a move in the middle...Run the effort in the moment...then up the auntie in the last 2 laps with everything I have.

Note to self: I think for me racing is more than just thinking about emptying the tank and putting in the effort. You have to piece together those split second thoughts of "I can beat this person!" and just go with them. Whether you make these decisions or not you are still going to be in pain. Somehow the pain seems to lessen when you know you are running well, or it doesn't matter as much because having a good race becomes more important. Do not fear the pain. Nobody ever died from pain.

This was pretty good. Just a bit frustrated with the running A's in the pool today. I just felt I was having trouble getting myself to that next threshold. That attack wasn't coming out of me today and I was breathing hard but my body didn't feel too tired and the heart rate wasnt very impressive. I felt I went as fast during the 15s at the end as I was going during the 70s. Disappointed in my kick. Stuff afterwards was really focused and well executed. Need to make sure my focus is on par right now.

Good barefoot. Kinda weird only doing 30 mins now lol. There was a seniors walk going on at the track so it was pretty crowded in the hangar. I was well out of the way of anyone walking on th track and had the curtain pulled way back but some official at the event still stepped right in front of me while I was running and told me I had to stop running on the track. I wanted to be smart and tell her that I was not on the track but held my tongue and just went straight to running on the other side of the curtain. Luckily there wasn't anything going on on the infield but it was still annoying because it made the corners tighter and more awkward to run. Luckily I only had to run there for about 12 more mins of the run.

ETT = 9

Got in the effort today and not sure what I could have done differently but it seemed to feel a bit extra challenging today for some reason. It could not have been the footing as the ground was pretty dry for the most part. The legs felt a bit constricted today and maybe a bit colder than usual. Just a feeling of overall heaviness. Surges were having a bit of trouble being executed but the effort was for sure there as it was very difficult to go back into steady. Good strength and recovery stuff afterwards.

Decent Long Run. Had to stop a couple of times to do things like pee and help cold friends put on clothes lol but got in the time. Paige and I both agreed that we got hit with the fatigue sensation around 35mins. Then things got better again in the last 15 mins.
