Live. Love. Run. It's what I do.


on February 11, 2013

Guess what?????? Track season started today!!!! And the first practice was great, and I’m completely looking forward to the rest of the season! To be honest, I was a little scared and dreading the start of the season….but once I was standing there with all the girls, waiting for practice to start, that all changed. I was, and am, pumped for this season. My motivation and drive that I’ve been missing all winter have all come back with a rush. I so badly want to be that varsity runner and to qualify for state! There’s a long season ahead of us. Today was only the first day, and if I want to get through this week, through this month, and come out at the front of the pack, I need to work my butt off. Yes, recovery days are very important, but I can’t become complacent or let myself get worn out. I need to stay strong, take good care of my health, get enough sleep, keep my stress levels down, stay on top of my schoolwork, and make sure that I am eating and drinking the right things to keep me at the top of my game. If I want to run in college, I need to make the most of this season this year so coaches will see my effort and my abilities! I wanna show my coaches, my teammates, my opponents, and everyone else that I am strong and fast and I won’t give up. I think that consistency is one of my strong points and I need to keep it that way. I need to run consistent or consistently faster times all season. I listed some of my goals on My Goals Page that I intend to keep this season. I know that I didn’t keep my goals over the winter like I wanted to – I didn’t run nearly as much as I wanted to, I didn’t do all the ab workouts that I wanted to, I didn’t keep myself in tip-top shape like I wanted to. But I think that I did succeed in keeping myself relatively in shape, and I know that I’m at least in considerably better shape now than I was at the beginning of the track season last year. We’re supposed to have a mile time trial on Wednesday – I’ll keep you posted on how I do! I’m planning on going all out and hopefully I won’t be too disappointed with my first time of the season!
