5 miles a day isn't that much for base millage tbh. when we were doing base milage we were alternating 12 and 8 mile days.

yeah but then a kid like me comes and outkicks you in the last 250. base mileage can only do so much for a 4/8 runner; 25-30mpw is optimal for high school.

explosiveness wins in the 4/8 combo.

 

Today I ALMOST got hawked anchoring the 4x400 relay.

 

I had about a 100m lead and the kid ran a 47.2 leg. He was breathing down my neck down the last 20m.

 

Hot damn. That's incredibly fast. We would have had a meet yesterday where I'd have to face off with the fastest 400 runner in the state in the 4x400, but I got saved from that embarrassment after it got canceled because of wind/rain/cold.

phillip washington. apparently he has h 46 outdoor.

 

Two kids in cali are hitting 46.61 this early in the season.

Our best 400 runner is doing 50-51...place 11th in the indoor state meet for the 600.

 

Plus we train not far from some of the top milers in the state for Cali.

Ran a 1:58.0 800 last friday, which puts me around 15th in the state. My coach wants me and a teammate to take 1-2 at sectionals (NOT going to happen).

 

Today was a joke tuesday meet; we (the distance team) always runs a 4x200 just to make fun of the sprinters. I led off, ran a 24 (meh) and promptly fell on the handoff (@#$(#*$&^@#)(*!$)(*&)! Ran the 1600 5 minutes later, bleeding from about 3 places and finished second within a tenth of a second to my teammate. I might be an idiot but at least I don't give up.. Right now I'm wearing 3 bandages and really not wanting to shower. It's going to hurt.

Ran a 2:06 for the 800. 9 second PR and it put me 9 Seconds from the 50 year old school record. Set the best time for our school for the season too. Going to train this summer to try and set the unofficial record now...

 

Last race for track for me is the 3200m....Going to try and run 10:10-10:15...if possible, try and run 9:58.

 

EDIT:

 

On that same note: Ran a 26 second PR. 10:18 two mile for my last HS meet, played 7th in district, and finished with the top time for the year at our school. If two people drop for the mile, I will be going to sectionals.

 

Also, likely going to sectionals for the 4x400 as an alternate in case someone gets injured.

Running in the 4X800 and 400 at sectionals tomorrow. Not good enough to make it to state though, unless I can drop about 5 secs off my 400 :P This season I improved my 1600 from a 5:21 to 4:59, 800 from 2:17 to 2:09, and 400 from 60 to 55.5. So good season, with one more shot to improve tomorrow. Just read that our conference champion ( who were in a different sectional) 4X800 ran a 7:51 to get a trip down state... damn fast.

Running in regionals tomorrow, hurdles. 300s and 110s. probably won't make it to sectionals in either of them, maybe 110s. Would have to PR by like 3 seconds in 300s to make it, and half a second in 110s.

 

Best times so far this season are 45.5 for 300s, and 17.5 for 110s :P

I admit I was hoping to qualify for state, but with 2 falls in relays and no real race ran for the past 3 weeks, I guess it wasn't realistic. We ran a weird 800, going out in 59 and then the leader (my friend) finished with a 56. I basically died and ran a 2:00; pretty horrible. I am skipping two days of school to go down to state with him and my coach though, so that should be fun.

2:00 is still pretty fast. Are you a Junior or Senior?

I'm a junior. My PR is 1:58.0, but after that race my season went downhill :\

 

I definitely want to be 1:56 next year.

Damn, pretty good running day today.

 

I haven't been doing much distance training during the winter, just some random spinning bike and a run. Mostly been focused on strength.

In the autumn i did 12.20 as quickest on 2.5km. I had a run today, and i felt great, not tired anywhere in the body or mind and good temprature: Ran 11.48 on 2.5km. Pleased with it.


J'adore aussi le sexe et les snuff movies

Je trouve que ce sont des purs moments de vie

Je ne me reconnais plus dans les gens

Je suis juste un cas désespérant

Et comme personne ne viendra me réclamer

Je terminerai comme un objet retrouvé

Ran a new 10K best, 38:13, down from my last timed one of 44:36 last year and down a minute from an unofficial time of 39:23. Just were I want to be before I go to college and try and make the XC/TF team there.

 

Sadly, only ran 4 miles since Summer started, out with an ankle injury. Most likely it is tendon issues, but I've already lost 2+ weeks of training from it.

Pushed myself a bit much today.

I've started with this, since I've heard good things about it. I'm personally just looking to lose weight, so we'll see how things go. This isn't too hard to follow, and it feels kinda nice actually.


I was going to eat hot dogs for dinner tonight. I think I will settle for cereal.

Haven't ran since last summer. Did a 5 mile race today.

Not the best of ideas, but it was fun.

I ran nonstop for the first 3 miles (harder then it sounds there was some tough uphill portions.)

Then basically ran on an off for the last 2 miles.

Kinda showed me how out of shape I was, but I was still proud of myself.

 

I got around 53 minutes, which isn't bad considering I walked some, there was some uphill, and I haven't ran in forever.
