Total Distance

Started off today waking up at like 6:00, AKA too frickin early, to go run my two mile. Plus, I only got to eat oatmeal even though there was a bounteous continental breakfast to partake of. Anyway, I was in the second heat seeded 5th. However, I was allowed to still warm up with the upper-class first heat members like Connor, Sean, and Garek so that was kind of them. I warmed up two miles, did some drills, watched my boys kill it in their race, and then got my turn eventually.

I started off in around 5th place for the first lap before realizing that I was feeling a lot more capable than the other members of my heat, getting into first by lap 3. At this point, the coach of one of the guys I just passed yelled (referring to me), "He's holding you back, get out in front!" I found this fairly offensive and proceeded to destroy him in the next few laps so pursuit was no longer a feasible option to him. My first mile was 5:01 and my second was a 5:08. I ended up winning my heat by a decent margin and PRd by nearly 20 seconds.

The best part is that this occured with hardly any stomach pain, for the first time in living memory, thanks to an inspired Thom and his nasty ginger chew thingys. I know I can still improve a lot and I hope to get sub-10 next time, but I am thankful for this breakthrough.

Shout out to my boy connor for blazing a 9:38 and nearly qualifying for state. Also love to my homies Sarah and Garek for killing those 9 minute paced cool downs with us and to Garek for helping the squad check out Parowan babes. Huge shout out to all the bloggers at Pine View that I was able to see and talk to for putting on a sick meet. and p.s, Connor lost to Kaysha Love in an arm-wrestle so we'll be hitting the gym this week.
