Morning: RACE DAY. Our race was set for 845 but didn't start til 10 cuz cold lol. Warmed up watching the ladies, did strides and spiked up and got to it. Gun went off and i got out behind the lead group, then stayed there on the uphill and went to about 5th during the downhill. Started losing contact about 2.5 in, battled some dudes on the uphills, then got outkicked with 20m to go. It's all good, I'm confident in my endurance, just gotta work on that finishing speed. Cooled down then ate some dennys with Mitch, an old friend. Good day, and it's not even over

Afternoon: 6 easy with the recruit and some others, 7:50 avg. feet are tired

Early morning: easy 3 shakeout

Evening: pre meet up in Pocatello, 6 total. Did a 500 instead of a k because of the way the course is. Starts after. Kind of a rough course, lots of hills and long ones too. Gonna be a grind. Small 10min cooldown.

Wowzers, probably one of the worst races of my life. The course was garbage, it was muddy and snowy and 28 degrees outside, I fell a bunch of times, it was windy, and I just really didn't go into it with a racing mentality. I'm sick of racing 6k and 5k for cross, I'm an 8k man. Gotta stop whining though, sometimes you eat the bar and sometimes the bar eats you. The bar dined on me today. Not gonna put too much stock into this race, there are a lot of factors that made it not an ideal race. I guess I'm too spoiled, so used to sea level and manicured grass. The fitness is in me, just gotta show it in a real race.

Morning: 3 easy shakeout on grass, 7:45 avg. Practice was moved to 3pm today

Afternoon: another big boy workout that I'm really proud of. warmup drills, strides, form mile, 1mile warmup, then the workout plan was 12-16x400m on the grass, goal range 60-67, with a 5min rest, last 4 on the track, same rest and pace. When I heard this I thought the 5min rest was gonna make it so easy, boy was I wrong. It was a grind! stuck in the pack for the whole thing; most of the team dropped out, the only people who did 16 were mike josh and liam, then me and koy did 14. Hit 67, 67, 67, 67, 67, 65, 68, 66, 67, 67, 66, 67, 65, 64. Man the turns on the long grass were a killer, but today I can say with ease that I ate the bar. Cooled down for like 2min. Good stuff!

Evening: my most solid long run of all time. First 4 miles were with Aaron, max, and Brady, and they were slow, like 7:40 avg. Next 12 miles I ran with Aaron biking next to me, huge shoutout to him for that. 6:25 avg for 16 total miles, so that next 12 miles was at a decent clip. Felt good all throughout, nice to see that aerobic fitness. Good stuff!

6:05 avg for the 12 miles
