I was not happy with the result of the race. I was on pace for the first 2km but then the wheels really fell off. My legs felt super heavy and moving them was very painful. I tried to not focus on it but its where my mind went. I really wanted this race to be the race and give me the ticket to OUAs but fate decided otherwise. I went for it and didn't have it. It's frustrating that the effort I put in only gave mediocre results. I finished and left it on the track (or well in the garbage can) my stomach was going in circles and I ended up puking all my days worth of food out. I felt tingly and pretty awful. I had a coffee before I ran with the hoeps of giving me some extra energy because last time I raced late I felt exhausted. I find it hard to pump myself late for a race when I'm usually in bed. I was really upset about the race and not making it OUAs but I know I just have to keep pushing and working to be the best version of myself. I can't settle and except that this is all I have. I put in a lot work throughout this race and running in such a large pack was really overwhelming and scary. I was trying to get into a good position but ended up wasting energy. When it came time to fight I had already spent my resources, This will be a good race to learn from. Running in packs is something I am not used to and I need to learn how to remain calm in these situations. I was so exhausted after the race that the majority of my emotions came loose this morning. Last year at this point I was in the pool and on the elliptical unable to run so it's a blessing to have the ability to run let alone an opportunity like this to compete. I am grateful for being here and thankful for the wonderful opportunities
8 AM

Running (shakeout) 12:00 [3] 2.4 km (5:00 / km)

Nice shakeout with Rebekkah. It was nice to sleep in. We checked out a park close to the apartment. It was a beautiful sunny day. I'm feeling nervous for tonight. I need to channel my energy into excitement to race. My foot was bugging me a bit but only when I thought about it. I iced it after hip mobility stretching and rolling. I really want to run well tonight, but I can't let the nerves and my foot get to me.

Hip mobility
Push and sit (54 pushups)

Today I was feeling very worn down and mentally drained. I felt on the edge of breakdown prior to workout. I told myself that sometimes you just have to do things and put in a good effort even when it feels like you can't. I saw jo before practice and she said to monitor my foot for it could turn into a SF. This messed with my head and I fed the bad wolf. Tempo felt slow but it was my fastest time. I didn't do the accels and jogged around instead, I started the workout but coming around on the back stretch the second time for the 600 and the 400 went into an anxiety/panic attack of hyperventilating. It felt as though I was crying, suffocating and choking. I don't know what happened but I stopped running. I found it hard to remain calm. I really don't like feeling this way. I wanted to do the workout properly and not have an episode, but I let my body take over. I pulled myself together and did a proper rep. My mind was not in the right place today. Under times of pressure my body and mind can get the best of me and it's something I am working on. I have come a long way over the past year and I'm proud of myself for the improvement I've made. Last year I would have a similar incident occur bi weekly or monthly and i would judge myself for it. Now they're rare and far between and a learning experience, to stop and reevaluate.

really good pool workout today. I made it back to start kicking the fastest ever so that was a great start. During the intervals I really pushed it, during one of the first ones I had my eyes closed and ended up hitting the wall... I really tried to push my limits I used colin's FIJG and went for it. HR got to 29. My food was slightly sore this morning.

Good workout today. I found the shorter fast stuff challenging and was feeling beat up from the weekend which only meant I had to have more calm conversations. I liked having Maxie and Rebekkah to work with and help push me and get the most out of myself. I was barely able to go into cooldown. The short fast stuff is challenging for me but that’s what’s going to make me grow and get better. Prior to the workout the top of my left foot was bit sore but I didnt notice it except in preact.
