Dearest Collin,

Come to a Falcon XC practice. I miss you and I'd like to talk and run with you like the good ole days! That's all.

Biked to practice and home for about 4.5 miles total, not too intense. Easy pace run. Convinced Jamie to let me go 5 today😉 Also... One mile was under 6... But only bc people told us to slow down and I don't like that... Sped up each time I heard it!

Had a hill workout today. Was super excited but a little nervous! 2 sets of 100m, 200m, 300m, and 400m (jogging back for rest). Jamie approached me before and suggested I only do one set so I don't start up too quickly. She wanted me to go about 5:10 pace. I ended up getting excited and hitting 18, 38, 56, and 73! I kept thinking I gotta be under race pace, I didn't really take into account the hill though😂 biked for 7 miles after I ice bathed... that was a bad idea, lol. Shoutout to Bryn tho for ice bathing with me and for taking me to Lagoon yesterday!

Nice little recover run, I'll be back to full mileage tomorrow! Biked for 14.5 miles today just nice and easy. Good times with my pals at kneaders👍🏼

Finally back to mileage! I say finally but I actually built up a lot faster this time around. I talked goals with Jamie and I'm pretty excited with what's to come! For our 5 miles of easy pace I averaged a 6:26. Then we lifted 3 sets of SLRDL (10 reps each leg), overhead press (10 reps), speed squats (1 min), and tricep dips (1 min). Because of weights today and speed tomorrow I decided to only bike to and from practice at the school and got 1.5 miles😂

Coach had a set course for our steady state run today. I was already feeling incredibly sore from yesterday so I knew I'd need some mental strength today! My pace progressively got a little slower but Andrew and I pushed one another to the finish and got a 5:41 AP for 3 miles. It was really the first speed I've had this season and was after my first lifting and first full mileage so I was decently satisfied! It was nice to have Andrew pushing me and, I'll admit, nice to finish first😂 No biking today because I'm taking the bike in to get fixed!

I felt way sore going into today's run but I got in a good warmup and did drills (which isn't normal for me) then headed off. Averaged a 7:22 which I felt pretty good about! Got my bike mostly fixed up... hills aren't a problem anymore but I can't shift up past the 2nd front gear😕 I'll try and get that looked at again! Biked 7 miles at about 16mph average, improvement!😂

I'm starting to feel really bad about myself... Last summer my runs were all low 6 min pace and my kicker was an 8:36! I'm not improving much even though I thought I was😕 But, Zack came and ran it with us. That was a party! Biked 14 miles and did some abs, hips, pull ups, and push ups.

Thanks for everyone's support yesterday, I was feeling better today! Good recovery day with some stellar guys, lifted some weights, biked 5.25 miles (took that easy today), and then the usual abs, hips, and push-ups!

Easy pace run went well today. Started out up hill and then came down on the way back! Turned around to help Satchey finish out on pace and got a little bit extra mileage. Biked 4 miles today and got up to 29 mph!

Before practice I did abs and finally got back up to an 8 minute plank! Easy pace run again. I negative split every mile but still only averaged a 6:29. We lifted today with single leg squats, push up rows, face plants, and running arms. After which I did hips, push ups, and biked with Gill. Got about 16.5 miles on the bike! Haven't really been feeling it mentally lately. The team just feels lonely, I don't have many friends in or out of practice anymore😕

We had a 2.5 mile tempo. I was a little surprised, worried, and excited all at the same time when Ben, Creed, and Satchel were still with Andrew and I at the mile-mile and a half mark! Satchel didn't hang on much longer after that, and Creed was only doing a 2 mile tempo, but Andrew, Ben, and I all finished together! Our splits were 5:28, 5:34, and 2:47 averaging a 5:32 pace. I'm not very satisfied or content yet, but I have to remind myself it's still the beginning of my training and speed! Biked 4 miles, abs, hips, and push ups!
