XC- There were a few inches of rain on the road, so that was kinda a hint that we weren't going to run for a bit.  We played tag inside a gym for a while, which I'm counting as 1.5 miles.  After a while when we thought the rain was done and we ran. after about 2 or 3 minutes it started raining hard again. I ran with Dylan and he pushed me a ton.

    XC-This was probably the hardest run I've done with the team.  We first jogged to Mack Park, which wasn't bad one bit.  After Coach Wright explained to us the run.  We sprinted up Beauty, went slow down Beast, Sprinted up Beast went down Beauty. The first time we did that it was not that hard, but after that, It was terrible.  The beast is a long hill, and the beauty is a smaller hill.  We did that 5 times then jogged back to SV.  I was thinking about running twice today, but after Beast, I didn't want to.

     Ran by myself up the canyon. I tried to push it hard, but I didn't feel like I could. Had a good run though.

      XC- I'm just guessing on the distance. We ran to Mack Park and then started a tempo run. Went up the canyon after that. Hard to explain where it went.  Was a pretty hard run for the tempo run, but going down the canyon and back to SV felt good.

     XC- I'm guessing on the distance again. We did a new type of run that I hadn't done before.  The hardest part was the sprinting up a hill.  Almost caught up the Matt 2 or 3 times going up the hill, but died at the last of the sprint.  It was a hard run though.

      Did my 5 mile run up the canyon.  I felt really good the whole run, and went fast for most of the run.  It was nice weather in the morning, which felt good. It just was a good run.

     XC- Coach Wright told a few people who had been running a ton this summer to take this week easy, or to not run at all.  He said that because he doesn't want us to burnout or to get sick of running right before state or during the season sometime.  So this week I'm going to take easy.  Coach Wright said he wants us to, after this week, want to run sooo much.

       Again, an easy run at XC. I didn't want to do an easy run, but I probably should listen to coach. I wanna run more soo bad.

       Was thinking about trying to beat my mile time.  Went to the track, stretched and ran. I felt great, no hurting or anything, maybe I wasn't pushing it enough or something, and had a time of 4:55.  Nope, no Personal best, but oh well.  Ran home after that.

        XC- Did a warm up, then we had a blue and white run/race. This was for Varsity and JV for our meet on Friday I think.  I got 17:14 or 17:40, (I didn't hear it that well) for the 5k. Did a cool down after. Almost got lost a few times, if it wasn't for Nick, Tyler, and the other guys on the team, for sure I would've gotten lost.

         XC- Golf course extended run. First we did a warm up, up sixth south. I went with Alex for the warm up, then ran with Steve, Tyler, Nick, and Jared for the rest of the run.  Then we did 5 minutes miracles after the warm up, which were 3 minutes tempo, 1 minute race pace, and 1 minute plus, then repeat.  It was pretty hard, but it felt good.

      XC- We are now training everyday together, and school starts tomorrow, so my runs are going to be different.  Today we ran at 3PM, which wasn't much fun.  We did some accelerations, or ateast that's what I think they were called. It sucked running in the heat, but it probably helped me.  After 3 and a half miles Tyler and Jared jumped in the creek we were running by.  It was pretty funny, and I was thinking about doing it. Talked a lot about XC after.  Got a meet on Friday, so I'm excited.

      XC- today we got our jerseys for the team. Then ran a slow pre-meet run.  I ran it with Tanner at first, then later with Brennan and a few other kids.  Didn't want to go fast, so went a slower pace, stopped a few times to get a drink, because it was way hot.

        XC Meet- It was a long ride there, but it was fun. When we got there the JV girls ran 30 min. later.  Then the JV guys ran, then the Varsity girls, and then the varsity guys. We ran at 5:30, which kinda sucked because it was still burning outside-100 degrees!  It was so hot that we were sweating before we were running.  I tried to drink a ton before the race because I'm not used to running in the heat.

        At the start I didn't want to get trapped so I sprinted at the first, and went way too fast.  After about the first half mile or a bit more I was already way dehydrated.  We went down a hill and a few people passed me, I tried to pace myself for the that part. I ran with them for a bit and then went up a hill and was behind them a bit.  I was too dehydrated, I didn't want to keep running.  At that part I hated running a ton.  There was a group ahead of me with about 3 or 4 people, and one guy pretty far ahead of them.  We kept running the rest of the race, which I was hoping would be over soon, but we still had 2 miles left.  We ran around the pond once, and a while after that someone passed me, and I passed someone else a little after the 2nd mile.  I kept running, and the people that were ahead of me I knew I couldn't beat at the last second.  We didn't really have a big fast sprint at the end.  The people that were ahead of me were only ahead by a few seconds, but the whole race I knew I woudn't catch them at the end, even though I tried to think it at some times.  I crossed at 16:01 for the 3 miles course.  I almost fell over at the end.  Some guy made sure I was okay, then went and helped a guy that was behind me a bit. 

        I saw my grandma and grandpa after, which was cool I thought.  Dylan came in 30 seconds after me, and talked to me a bit.  After I drank probably a full gallon of water.   Our team took 2nd out of a lot of the teams that were there, which was way cool.  I did a cool down with a few of the other guys on the team after, then we drove home. XC is a ton of fun!

Did half a mile warm up, then we started the run.  It was still pretty hot - 90 degrees.

At first I kinda got stuck in the crowd, but went around some Bonneville guys and went to the lead with Dylan and 2 bonneville people behind me. It was a figure 8 twice. The first part was good, everyone was pretty close behind me.

After the second part of the figure 8 I pulled ahead of everyone. At the first part of the second figure 8 I didn't see Dylan or one of the Bonneville people anymore. I was getting scared of the guy behind me so I tried speeding up. At the second part of the figure 8 it is mostly sand.  Coach Storrs or Coach Wright told me that I had 10 seconds on the guy behind me, which helped me out a ton, maybe only mentally, and helped me get back into my rythym.

At the end I thought it ended about 100 meters after I thought it was going to, but I still had a kick after that. After two Bonneville guys crossed, and then Dylan and Tyler. The guys and girls both won (YEAH!). It was a bit close though for the guys, we won by 3 points. Everyone did really well. Nice job Sky View.
