Total Distance

Distance Challenge today was pretty sick, Shout out to Davis for putting that on. I warmed up a mile with my friends racing the 1600 and then watched them kill it with connor, sean, and thomas coming in at 4:31, 4:32, and 4:33. It was insane. Then I cooled down with them for another 2 miles and got ready for my 800.

I ran in the 3rd heat which was right around where I'm at, but the pace was kind of slow the first lap. I was playing things a little bit conservatively and never made it up on the second lap. I finished very tired and felt like I had ran as hard as I could but I really wanted a 2:08. I don't know my official time, but it was somewhere around 2:10 or 2:11 and it looks like that's as good as it's going to get for indoor. 

My 3200 was pretty hard and again I wasn't quite into it. It was less than a half hour after my 800 and I was noticeably fatigued. I basically just survived through it and ended at around 10:28. It was faster than my last one, but I really just need to have a meet where I can focus on the 2 mile and I think I can do much better than that. shout out to Sean for his third place 9:47 time and to Brock on his first ever two mile in around 11:20.

We have an intense week of training to look forward to and many more to come as I approach the huge PRs of outdoor. Indoor has been cool, but I'm ready to get things going for real now. Oh and shout out to me for seeing @Sarah! in real life today and congrats to all who had good races.
