Sunday Feb 26 #

5 PM

Other (Broomball) 20:00 [2]

Very sore from my races, so I wasn't much help to my team in this intramural broomball game. We lost 5-2, but it was against real hockey players, so they were much more comfortable on the ice.

Saturday Feb 25 #

1 PM

Running warm up/down 15:34 [2] 1.85 mi (8:25 / mi)
shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

Warming up! Super nervous for my first race in forever. I kept jumping, then flinching when the gun went off.

Running race 5:56 [5] 1.6 km (3:42 / km)

I don't remember my splits for this, but they started out too fast, slowed down considerably, then probably picked back up with my kick at the end. I passed 4 girls on my kick, so I should have pushed myself harder earlier.

That being said, this was my first race in a long long time, so I'm satisfied with it. I have something to work towards.

Running warm up/down 9:09 [2] 1.0 mi (9:09 / mi)
shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

Cooling down with Dylan after he came to watch me race
3 PM

Running warm up/down 6:06 [2] 0.64 mi (9:32 / mi)
shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

Short lil warm upppp

Running race 2:42 [5] 0.8 km (3:22 / km)

800m race. I think this race went better than the 1600m. I was a lot less nervous since I had one race under my belt already. I'm not entirely sure what my time was, but I think close to 2:42.

Running warm up/down 13:55 [2] 1.55 mi (8:59 / mi)
shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

Final cool down
7 PM

Soccer 30:00 [3]

Final intramural soccer game. Tied 0-0, and it was a really good game. We didn't play frantically at all (which we often do).

Friday Feb 24 #

11 AM

Running 36:42 [3] 4.5 mi (8:09 / mi)
shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

Shake out run along the southwest corridor park.

This week has been super busy with classes starting to wrap things up before midterms. I have two midterms next week too, so I probably won't have any more time next week :(
4 PM

Other 1:30:00 [2]

Ending the week by enjoying the afternoon sunshine with some pick up football and soccer at the field a few blocks away
10 PM

Soccer 30:00 [3]

Intramural soccer game, tough loss, 2-1.

Tuesday Feb 21 #

6 PM

Running intervals 37:18 [5] 3.92 mi (9:31 / mi)
ahr:173 max:198 shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

The workout was supposed to be 3x or 4x mile repeats, but when the option was offered for a 2x 800m, 4x 400m, 2x 800m, I opted for that. The shorter, speedier stuff will be more helpful for my race on Saturday.

Unfortunately, I did a poor job of pacing myself through the workout. I had to take a break before the last 400, so I chose to cut the last two 800's down to one 800 and some strides. But in my 800 I absolutely hit a wall not quite 500m in. I stopped there because there was no point to continuing through at such a slow pace and dying while doing it. After a few recovery laps, I did 2 laps of strides on the straightaways.

Splits:
800m - 3:01, 3:01
400m - 84, 86, 89, 85
800m attempt - 1:49 at speed

Takeaways:
1. Although I'm not super duper slow, I can't sustain these paces for that long. I think it would have been better to go for 3:05 800's and 88 400's. Having a race under my belt will help give me a better idea of what times to shoot for in my intervals.
2. I need to make sure I'm getting the right amount of food. My eating schedule has been somewhat all over the place, and I definitely did not get enough sustenance today before the workout.
3. I need to keep an eye on my L hip. It's been hurting since Sunday's broomball game. Although I don't think it's anything serious, the workout definitely aggravated it, so it'd be smart to pay attention to it.

Running warm up/down 7:07 [2] 0.68 mi (10:28 / mi)
ahr:158 max:168 shoes: Black Asics Gel-Excite 4

Running back to my building
9 PM

Other (Football) 20:00 [2]

Intramural flag football game. I exceeded my own expectations! I scored my team's first touchdown, intercepted a throw that would have resulted in a touchdown for the other team (and blocked another one!), got flags off of 2 people, and accidentally bodied my own teammate to the ground. Fun times all around, and pretty low key since I was only on the field half the time.
