Things aren't going great for me. Little update; I ran 8:42 for my 3k time trial in November, and then took a week off because cross country ended. Then, for some reason, coach Houle had us do a track workout, even though we all took time off, and it injured me. I've been injured since; problems with my right tibial tendon and left peroneal tendon. I saw a doctor last week, and he prescribed me this super strong anti-inflammatory that makes me dizzy, coupled with 5 more weeks off, so i'll run again on Monday, March 12th. I'm counting down the minutes. I've been doing lots of core and lifting, but I can't do any biking or swimming because they seem to inflame my peroneal tendon, which  means I don't really have any means of doing cardio until i can run again. it'll be scary to see where my fitness is at, but at least i have a plan. the plan is to redshirt outdoor, and then when i'm back to 10 miles, go back to practice. i'm on my own til then (by my choice), because i know that i'll want to come back too quickly if i go to practice. coach Hould is being supportive of me, so that's a plus. we'll see how long that lasts. so for now, the plan is to just build my fitness  back for cross country in the fall. i know i can travel, and even potentially  be all conference if i really grind, so that's what's keeping me motivated. i know i have potential in this program, whether or not others believe in me. so i'll keep putting in the work and see what happens. but for now, lots of core!

today i did my normal core session, 20 crunches, 20 bicycles, 20 v-ups with a 15lb dumbell, 20 reverse crunches, 20 leg lifts, 1min plank, then two 30sec side planks. followed that with some light arm and leg work.

Today I did an interesting session. I sent a mass snapchat to 17 people, and however many people opened it without responding, I did 10 crunches, pushups, and dips. i ended up doing 90 of each, because 9 people opened without responding. after that i did a 90sec wall sit, and some calf stability exercises.

today was arm day. i think i'm getting more buff, because before my injury i weighed like 121, now i'm pushing 133, but there's no noticeable fat increase. must be because i'm lifting, and muscular hypertrophy is able to occur since i'm not running
