low mileage at easy pace on the MCT with Gan. Felt a little tired the first like three miles but the last couple felt pretty good. Avg. pace was 7:35. Also saw Zack so that was cool. Check out his blog.

Lonely easy low mileage run this morning cuz I have work later during practice :( looped down by trafalga into old lehi then back up over the over pass and up airport hill. Little behind pace today mostly because of the hills on the way back. partly because i hate running by myself. avg pace was about 8:00.

Premeet today which included a mile wu, three strides, and 800m at race pace (or in this case much faster than race pace... whoops) and then I ran the course for our team race tomorrow. I like the course for the most part. The end is a little rough but I think Jamie is going to change it. That's all for today. I'm pretty boring rn.

Today was our Team Race to kick off xc season for this year. I was a team captain for the grey team and I was quite doubtful of our team yesterday cuz only two girls showed up (including me...) and also I just had that "we are gonna struggle so hard" vibe... but we actually pulled out the win on both the girls and the boys side and I'm so proud of us! Anyway I started my day with a mile wu and then drills and a few strides as a team. I was a little nervous just cuz it's hard to know what to expect at the beginning of the season. Like my body forgot or something haha. Right from the beginning I ran right beside Gan and it stayed that way for most of the race. We had a solid but slightly slow first mile and it felt relatively easy. Second mile was a little bit faster and still felt pretty good. Had a couple of good surges during this mile as well. At the start of the third mile I was startin to feel a little drained but Gan and I still kept a decent pace. However we slowed down quite a bit when we hit the swampy grass which is not quite the best for running. I felt pretty good about my kick once I hit the track for the last 400m or so. Ended up with a 19:47 which is not quite what I wanted. I was hoping for more around a 19:30 but I think it will come. Looking back I could have picked it up a little more at the beginning of the third mile and also could have taken a few seconds off of both the first and second mile. Oh well, it wasn't a complete fail and I'm looking forward to the season. Shoutout to Gan for pushing me. I am definitely not a good solo racer so I super appreciate her.

Cross trained today. I hate swimming but did it anyway bc it was like a million degrees by the time I got around to doing anything. My workout was basically like 45 minutes of me swimming the shallow end of the pool and Aqua-jogging the deep end. It wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be. Probably bc I'm not the best swimmer and I go really slow hah. Oh well. Back at it tomorrow.

Met up with Gan real early this morning at the freedom park on the MCT. I was super sleepy still for like the first mile or so, but it ended up being a really good "medium plus two" miles BUT WAIT come to find out later today it was just supposed to be medium. Oh well I felt good so no problems. We just went out 4.5 and then turned around, passing Watson Manor in the process. The run went by super quick today and I really enjoyed myself. Our average pace was like 8:04 or something like that.
