6x800 @2:15 pace.  Went 2:16, 2:15, 2:15, 2:19, 2:20 and 2:25.  Couldn't breath at all.  And my back hurt so kind of the worst.  Then Ryan was like we're doing 2 more 400's, I think I was like 72's for those so not good.

Mile warm up cuz there was a junior high meet going on very soon after. Then 10x400. Went 63, 63, 63, 64, 63, 65, 64, 65, 66, 64. Then 4 mile cool down/distance run. Pretty happy. My back and breathing were much better cuz I was able to see Ron yesterday so Shout out to him for being a miracle worker!

Looped around highland then down to AF and back.  Then did 2x400 barefoot on the grass just for a good time.  First 5 miles were kind of hard but then my legs started feeling really good which was nice! Also we had some Olympic Gold medalists here, 1 won triple jump in 1984 and the other one long jump 2016 and we had a banquet with them which was cool!

5.11 in the morning.  Nice and easy pace!

Also made the invitational in the 4x1600 3200 and 1600 so I'm dropping either the 3200 or 1600, I don't know which one yet though.

Well quite a day.  Did the mile and went 4:22 which I was wanting for better.  Kind of gave up the last lap and felt super weak.  I've been kind of burnt out from running.  800 later and gave up the last part as well.  Went 2:02.  Talked to my coach and we're going to change up training for a little bit to get me back fully so excited for that.  Also decided to do the invitational 3200 and not the 1600.  I'll be ready for that.  Also shout out to everyone who raced, but extra shout out to Collin, Austin, and Gan, coming off of injuries and killing it, Collin making progress every week, Austin going 4:31, and Gan for PRing
