I was a bit unsure, but that&#39;s to be expected a bit at the start of the season. I feel I&#39;ve got the groove down now though. I love how our team checks up on each other after our races and talks about our struggles and triumphs.</p> Mon, 06 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 30, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-30-2018.html <p>this is a post for all of the week at altitude camp. By far the best camp i&#39;ve ever been to! I love my team and their great examples to me. I know we&#39;ve got something special this year and were going to do great!</p> Mon, 30 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 27, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-27-2018.html <p>forgot practice was at 6:30 today, so I got there late and ran 6:15-20 pace to catch up and under 6:50 once I caught up for the rest of the long run. Im a bit tired, but the amount of food im eating right now is unreal.</p> Fri, 27 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 26, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-26-2018.html <p>good run today. I kind of just did my own thing which is nice sometimes. Yesterday I cut my heel open with a rock on our grass run and its pretty bruised and sore. The rocks on the trail didn&#39;t help with the pain though. Me and Mikey had some solid striders (I beat him on all of them).</p> Thu, 26 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 25, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-25-2018.html <p>great boring grass run this morning and an awesome kids club! I love kids club but im glad its over and that the season is finally starting. My cold is going away and didn&#39;t bother me at all today. I had a hard time running at the start though because of a bloody nose.</p> Wed, 25 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 24, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-24-2018.html <p>Race in hurricane to start off the 24th celebrations today. I had a great time and was not super ready to race. I wasn&#39;t feeling to great but I didn&#39;t let that stop me from getting a good time, place, and 1234 pv finish! had a 18 min warm and like a 30 min cool to hit todays minutes. 16:49 isn&#39;t to bad for the end of the summer.</p> Tue, 24 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 23, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-23-2018.html <p>tempo, thresh, and cv workout today. felt super good until the last 2 sets. It was super hard to breathe and when I finished the cool down I thought I was going to faint so I drove home and laid on the ground for a little while. I hope i&#39;m not sick and it&#39;s just the heat.</p> Mon, 23 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 19, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-19-2018.html <p>Man I was so tired and sore today (I tried not to show it). I felt a lot better toward the end but after a few striders Im dead. Now I have to decide what to eat for breakfast:)</p> Thu, 19 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 18, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-18-2018.html <p>easy workout today with the team. sets of tempo, thres, and cv. We had some good conversations and it went by pretty fast. me and dr j are pretty excited for the hurricane race on the 24.</p> Wed, 18 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 17, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-17-2018.html <p>Kids club takes a lot of energy but it&#39;s a blast! Grass runs are super boring. I want to get some speed out of my system so it&#39;s a good thing we have a work out tomorrow.</p> Tue, 17 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 16, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-16-2018.html <p>What a freakn awesome run! sand hill with perfect conditions! I visualized and hydrated all weekend and it paid off. I got 8:41 up and 5:22 down setting some new records. The run after was exhausting but I was pleased with my efforts.</p> Mon, 16 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 13, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-13-2018.html <p>easy run from the bloomington hill north park out on the river trail after reviewing the course. felt great today. It wasn&#39;t as muggy as I though it would be. 6 striders at the end.</p> Fri, 13 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 12, 2018 http://xcnatestate.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-12-2018.html <p>great run today with mostly coach, mikey, and jd.
