You never realize how much you love running until you can’t run for an extended amount of time. 

it doesn’t matter if it’s your first injury or 45th;

it hurts just as bad (if not more) each and every time. 

First meet

Yep first meet today

I’m not running
I’m not sure if I’ve posted about this yet but since like July 1st the top of my right foot has been gradually killing me.
About 2 weeks ago I’ve had enough of it’s BS and told my coach, we changed my training and kept me off of hills and hard surface still no change, so last Friday was my last run and STILL the pain is getting worse.
So nontheless I’m not sure if I’m going to have a XC season again
But it’s okay I’ll be stronger once again for track.
And I’m super excited for my team and seeing how the season rolls out for them. Today isn’t tech a race, they’re fartleking it since it’s our regional cource and super hilly and tough.
I may be upset about not running but everything happens for a reason and I have to continue to remember patience is key -and with every set back there’s a bigger and better comeback

Finally feeling better again!
After cutting 2 workouts short for a foot issue this is EXACTLY what I needed before going to school and starting camp week on Sunday!
Shoutout to mile pace “pick up” days
300s always leave me smiling

66 degrees with 100% humidity …
How about no. 
AM run from hell with mile splits of 8:00 8:40 & 9:42
KILL ME

Caption says it all.
First day with decreased foot pain
(Oh yeah tendon issue now, of course right before camp)
But today is what I needed to get my confidence back up with camp in 6 days!
Let’s gooooo!
Work hard, play harder.

HIGEST MILAGE WEEK OF THE SUMMER THIS WEEK

Woohooo! On the road to my FIRST 50 mile week 👏👏👏
Yesssss

Legs super tired this morning; as my splits show : 9:16 8:23 8:06

At least my last mile was normal

But I have a 6 miler and a lift tonight so yeah this will be interesting

(especially since I slept through all my alarms this morning and slept in until 10:08. Kill me, wasted half my day sleeping)

Happy tempo Saturday 
Even though I’m not so happy
But that’s only because ice buckets and tempos are evil 
(especially when they’re 7mi long tempos on the track)

TRACK WORKOUT THURSDAY
mile pace speed pickup was the workout: 1500,800,500,300
All getting faster paced as it progressed.
Managed to split a 55.48 for my 300
Safe to say I had a speedy day
