4/23 Pre meet run with hand offs and strides
4/24 Hendricks County Championship- Did a longer drawn out warmup since we thought the meet started at 5 but it was actually 5:15. Ran 2nd leg of the 4×8. We stacked it but didnt really run all out i guess you could say as We went 8:09 and i went 2:02. Plainfield did pretty well of staying with us for the first two legs, they remind me of our 4×8 my sophomore year. Later i ran the 800 and in typical fashon, the county 800 went out slow. Went through the 400 in :62 and then had a finishing time of 2:02 for second behind teammate conner. I need to just get out from the gun if i want to run fast. Closed the night with the 4×4. My time is finally decent, ran second leg going 52.1 and the team going 3:26. Conference will be a great test. Last year we lost this meet by 4 points, and this night we won by around 30 points i think. The strength of the team really showed with some freshman competing and scoring.
4/25 65 minutes total in the pool. We were then going to host the Avon North vs. South meet but after 3 evernts there was lightning and the meet got cancelled. I wish there was a 4×8 when i was in middle school..
4/26 Probably one of the worst morning runs ever.. Halfway in when we were about 3 miles away from the school i really started to have some complications.. Lets just say i was seriously looking to utilize some leaves… In the afternoon i did not have the same problem luckily. warmed up and cooled down with fly 80′s inbetween. It was then off for band until 9.
4/27 No school so there was band practice at 1 because of state qualifier later in the day. Did the workout on my own in the morning 4x(200,200,400) 200′s at 800 pace and 400′s at mile pace. Rest was have the distance jog. Felt pretty good averaging 29′s in the 200, and 66′s in the 400. We ended up qualifying for state in the wind ensemble. Hopefully things go well this saturday. I also went to MIC after and got there during the mile. I was a little bummed that there was no music to take my mind off the chilly night, but i should have prepared a little better. I timed the distance races and thought i had started my watch a lap late since the girl from NC ran around a 10:38. I also miss watching Austin Mudd race..
4/28 Long run is starting to get shorter and with that i went 9 from my house on the county roads.
4/29 5 miler with strides before my sunday lunch and nap! i love naps. May is here which means this is the last full month of track. Man it is coming to a close fast. I am ready to be done with school. seniorits is a real thing and it isnt fun haha.
