This was a pretty good day. Dispite not having done a lot 1500m racing this season I'm basically in the same position I was in this time last year. Was focused and engaged for the 1500m, used Noah in those last 2 laps. Probably could have pulled more out of myself as I kind of settled a bit in those middle laps by myself. Need to put myself in the hurt locker a bit more. Went into the 1k having a bit more expectaions for myself as I knew what I had done last year this day. The boys went out hard so I was alone and when Noah passed me in the last 400m, I heard Joe yell "Heather stay with him!" And so I did, I let him pull me along but that's all. It wasn't the smoothest of running., but I'm okay with it for today.
Things I did well this season: Self motivation, got a lot of work done on my own. Organization: ate appropriately, got the sleep I needed, planned my day accordingly. Never got myself into that totally run down 100% exhaustion feeling dispite the clinical hours etc. I was definitely feeling fatique but not the most I've felt.
Things to do for next season: Take the inspiration I've gotten from team mates and successful athletes and integrate it into my own practice as motivation. See others as competators and tools to make me run faster in a race rather than a threat. Meditate! Visualize! Meditate! Have fun!
