It felt really weird, my legs felt like really tight and they didn&#39;t want to bend. And breathing was really hard, but I&#39;m looking forward to a wonderful XC season!</p> Fri, 01 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, May 15, 2018 <p>Today was the first day of my 2 week break but I just wanted to say that I already miss practice and the seniors and I can&#39;t wait for XC. Also, I hate the bus! And happy birthday to Pyper Holt! That&#39;s all.</p> Tue, 15 May 2018 06:00:00 Mon, May 14, 2018 <p>AM: We did 25 to 30ish minutes. A 15 minute warm up, and then five of us ran a mile &quot;race&quot; and it was awesome! We had our other teamates and coaches as pacers which helped a lot. Coach Holt helped me personally a ton because I stayed up with Gracie for the most part and then the last lap was prolly my worst lap but I still got a PR. It was only a 2 second PR but at least I got one.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Sandburgs again. It was just Pyper, Gracie and I cause we went less minutes. It was kinda sad cause we realized that this morning was our last run with all of the seniors because we are starting our two week break. I really like our seniors and it is going to be sad when they leave, but it was an awesome cross country and track season with them. Anyway it was a fun chill run.</p> Mon, 14 May 2018 06:00:00 Sat, May 12, 2018 <p>Awesome workout today. My group was just Pyper, Gracie, and me, but Roberts would sometimes jump in there and help us out. It felt really good to hit our paces or accidentally go a bit faster. We also had some good conversations and played some more &quot;thinking&quot; games.</p> Sat, 12 May 2018 06:00:00 Fri, May 11, 2018 <p>I was going to start my 2 week break today, but then coach Holt was talking to us about a mile time trial thing so I ran. It was WAY hot and kinda hard, but it was fun cause we just played some thinking games. And now I am looking forward to the time trial thing and other stuff.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 11 May 2018 06:00:00 Thu, May 10, 2018 <p>AM: 20 minutes and then yoga. Today was way fun and yoga felt SO good! Today I actually tried to do the stuff in yoga instead of just kinda going with the flow, and it was awesome.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Region! I ran with Ellie and Allison, and it was very fun. We just talked about how awkward our lives are and had some good laughs. Also I think I need to work on picking my feet up cause now instead of just falling on trail runs&nbsp;I just fall in the middle of the field for no apparent&nbsp;reason, but honestly I think it&#39;s fine.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 10 May 2018 06:00:00 Wed, May 09, 2018 <p>PM: Race day, I was the 800&nbsp;medley. My first lap was about a 1:13 which if I kept that up would be a HUGE PR, but of course I didn&#39;t. :( My second lap was WAY slow and I got 1 second faster than my slowest time. But now I know I can run faster and so I hope in the future years I will and others will with me (@pyperholt). Overall it was a fun day to watch people perform and it was fun to race.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 09 May 2018 06:00:00 Mon, May 07, 2018 <p>AM: Workout on the track! I felt so good today, but the 100&#39;s always seem really hard for me and I&#39;m not 100% sure why, but now I have something to focus on to get better. Coach Roberts kept reminding me of the stuff we talked about on the run in Herriman and that made me want to work even harder even though I think I was having a pretty awesome workout today in the first place. I know workouts can always be better and I can work on moving to the next level and push the &quot;limits.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: We went on a fun run and got just a little bit wet, it was awesome and pretty relaxing. I definitely love our team, they are so fun to talk to and run with. Its gonna be really sad when the seniors leave...</p> Mon, 07 May 2018 06:00:00 Sat, May 05, 2018 <p>Today was AWESOME! We went on a trail run near the hotel, and it was really fun and it was fantastic weather. On the way back I led a lot and it felt really good, and we got to the hotel to soon so we had to add on and Roberts told me a lot of wise stuff that I hope I can use in races and at practice.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 05 May 2018 06:00:00 Tue, May 01, 2018 <p>AM: Weights and 15 minutes. It felt awesome cause a few of us just sped it up a little bit and sometimes that is just super relaxing and nice.&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: We had a workout today! I felt really good today, there were a few times that I had to make myself push a little harder to stay with the group but it was awesome. I did have one pretty bad 100 because I was laughing cause it was a false start... but other than that it was awesome. And Roberts helped me with my form and I hope and can get better at the stuff he told me to do and it can become natural, then I can fix something else after.&nbsp;It was FREEZING and windy/rainy but that was also awesome and fun even though it kinda hurt.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 01 May 2018 06:00:00
