Man, I didnt get to talk to you today! Idk if you were at school or not, but I wish you couldve stopped by again to make me laugh! I was actually looking for you today. Haha, oh man.. anyway, did you guys know that Allie G. is like my favorite junior? Hahaha honestly! She’s so awesome! Ah, i love her! I was so happy today by what I saw that I literally jumped for joy, hugged her, and I was just so amazed! Like, wow! Awh man, gotta love Allie, right? Allie, you a G! Damn, I cant even stop smiling!
But hey, I have a story today! We ran a reversed route which was like 2mi. Dulce gave me a surprise hug from behind! haha! Same as Angelina, Vero, and Janet :) Anyway, we played this game called “Sharks and Minnows”. The object of the game is that three (or however many) people are put in the middle (theyre known as the “sharks”) The other people are put to one side (theyre known as the “minnows”) Basically, the minnows have to run over to the opposite side without getting tagged by a shark.
Anyway, since I didnt necessarily try (cause I knew I’d get tagged), Evelyn tagged me from behind, then the next two rounds, I got Allie G. and Rachel Chang! And this other person who I forgot haha. It was great!
All in all, I still cant believe it! Oh Allie G.! :’)Btw Aliie G. is the one to the left of me in the picture below (of my last post)!
Since my feet hurt like fucking hell & my head felt like it was stuffed inside an oven, I only did like 10 laps on the track. Well, thats as much as I was able to do anyway. When I was leaving the track, I saw you and you cme over to say hi! We havent talked ever since cross country season ended and i really did miss having you around. I enjoyed your company, you were one hilarious mother fucker haha i have to say! Honestly, thanks for that conversation! I left practice smiling and laughing, damn. Great feeling.
Anyway, since I have no running to talk about here another picture:
Its back from the Woodbridge race! With the varsity team <3 God, this race was just so great. No words can explain how much this race over-looked all the other ones! I literally had sooo much fun. I’m the one without a bib whose in the middle smiling at the camera hahaha.
All in all, it felt great talking to you today.
You know how i promised to post something about today’s practice? Yeah, well, I lied cause i have nothing to say about this one either haha.
Other than that we did core and that was basically it.
Sooo.. heres a picture with two of the greatest captains ever :)
(Left to right: Daphne. Amber, Me)
Its from O.C.C… even though I wasnt able to race this one, it was still fun for me. I think this was when I began to get super close to them. But this was a really cool race and I really did have a lot of fun. Anyway these two girls are like the greatest people on my team and theyre like the closest people I go to for almost anything. Next to Nick of course! But really, theyre cool people :)All in all, if I don’t post anything about practice (cause I have nothing to say) then expect another one of these!
I actually have nothing to say about this practice so here’s a pretty running picture of me from my last race!
It’s from the Ramona Invite way back like three or four weeks ago.. I placed 9th in the mile and got a medal :) … Great race! Not as great as the meet of champions though, I LOVED the meet of champions haha. Had such a blast with my team.
Oh and in the Ramona invite I think, I asked coach to let me race all three events that being 800m, 1600m, and 3200m cause I mean, it’s my last race so why the hell not you know?
All in all, I promise I’ll have something tomorrow! Today’s practice was just short that’s why haha.
Ahhhhhh I’m so sore haha. Especially yesterday, boy did my back kill me. Urgh. I think I should strech more haha. Anyway, guess what! I bought myself new running shorts online and im freakin excited. Like, omg. I cant waaaaaait! The Nike ones weren’t as nice as I thought theyd be, neither were the Adidas ones, so I took with my plan “c” and went for the Asics one. I wanted to get the maroon colored one (in case you didn’t know, im a huge fan of maroon 5 , sooooo…) haha. But, it didn’t have any my size so I had to just get the red ones, which were surprisingly not that bad.
Okay, on to what happened at practice.
Honestly, the heat is a real mood killer so i was pretty much grouchy the whole run (I admit to it) and I was super exhausted coming back. I think I did like 4 and a half-ish miles. Like, we ran to tri-city and back which, as coach said, is 4mi, and while we were there, I had to do a loop around the lake which is approximately 1000m. Soooooo… Yeah.
Today was alright though. What sucked is that I had to carry around my shoes the whole day cause I forgot to put them in my locker hahaha. Oh and I had that song stuck in my head… I believe the song is called “the gambler” by Fun. It’s a good song, haha. La la la la… I’m actually listening to it right now hahaha,
All in all, I can’t wait for my new shorts to come in. :)
Okay, I’ll be honest, that run was tiring as fuck.
Not only because I had like 2 hours of sleep last night (went to see Iron Man 3 with my friends hahah so good!) but also because I feel a little out of shape. Oh and did I forget to mention that we also had like 3 Starbucks drinks all venti. (I know, we’re idiots.)
Anywaaaaay, like I said, that was so goddamn tiring.
We ran like 6-8 miles and I honestly don’t remember most of it. We ran from VHS to Craig park back to VHS. But like, we had to run two miles into our race course at Craig park so that we’d equal to 8 miles. Yeah, it was hell. I felt so exhausted that like, after the one mile mark,I was like, “Where the fuck am I,” I was so out of it. It was bad haha.
But anyway, Craig park brings back a lot of memories from not only cross country races but also the summer practices and the runs I used to do with my old teammate. It made me a little sad inside cause it was good memories. Especially from cross country haha. Even Sarah mocked me about it.. So did Esme and the other girls. It was kinda funny actually.
Anyway, I was running back to VHS then all of a sudden the Troy High School xc team went passing by, and since I knew most of them, I stopped by to say hello! It was great. I miss my friends. Good thing I’m going to see them more frequently now!
All in all, I’m fucking tired. I’m going to catch up on some sleep haha.
Hahaha what a fun game!
So, instead of doing a workout or long run, we played a “linking-arms” game. So youre supposed to link arms with another person (to make it a pair). Someone is supposed to be “it” as they chase another person that is not linked with another person. If the person being chased gets tagged by the person who is “it”, then that person is “it.”
Ahaha oh man, poor Evelyn, she was “it” like two times! Awh, poor girl looked so exhausted. It was a fun practice, it was a fun game! I was “it” like once. And Amber too! Haha, she was the last one to be “it” lol. I was the one who tagged her actually. It was so hilarious, at one point we both got confused at who was ”it” then somehow (idk how) we ended up linking arms together then we both shouted at the same time, “NOT IT!!!!” Then Sarah had to be ”it” lol and she chased Mari. It was so funny!
All in all, fun practice haha.
First and foremost, of all the fucking days to forget my orthotics (customized foot inserts), i just had to forget it today… FML. I really wanted to do the run today! It was a fullerton run and I love the fullerton runs.. :( Fuck. Oh and one more thing, my gatorade was half-open cause I guess Nick didnt close it tightly enough that it leaked all over my shirt. Urgh.
Anyway, I had to run on the track (fuck my life even more) and urgh, it was a shithole. BUT. A good thing came out of this..
WATER POLO BOYS.
OMFG AYAYAYAYAYE. Holy shit. The water polo boys had to run on the track for conditioning (the varsity guys) & since I was friends with some of them, I ran with them! Oh hot damn. They were sooooooo cute. Omg and get this, they had to run in their freakin speedos which was fucking hilarious hahahahahah. I ran with Jacob and Kyle, damn did they look good lol. Oh man, I’d seriously date a water polo boy any day haha. So. Damn. HAWT.
All in all, I think I was so mesmorised by them that i lost count after 9 laps on the track.
Freakin hotties I swear.
Okay, so I wasnt able to attend practice today for personal reasons. But, I didnt really want to go today anyway.
So, after taking care of some stupid shit I had to do, I went home, and just did my own long run. I usually run to the near-by short trails which are literally 2 miles long). I did around 4 miles (I took advantage of today’s cooler weather) and it felt 10x more relaxing. Idk, I like running alone, I dont have to really think about anything and I personally feel like I pace myself better.
I cant wait for the summer practices when its in the morning, those seem even better. Not just because of the weather conditions but I guess also because it starts my day right.
Haha, guess i wasnt as enthusiastic about today as I was yesterday. But thats okay, life goes on!
All in all, I’m kind of glad I ran alone.
Long run day! Woo hoo! Nothing beats a great day than a great day PLUS a long run! Hahaha. Alright, so we had to do either: Rose (3mi), Jefferson (4mi), or small-q (5mi). Since the weather was hitting near 90, I only made it as far as Jefferson. But hey, not too shabby, right? It was great! I ran with Mireya and eventually C.K. and Esme caught up to us so we had a great time running. Anyway, I was surprisingly the first to get back. It was actually pretty awesome if I do say so myself haha. You know, even though I really didn’t like track (sorry to break your heart trackletes), I have to admit, it did help me get like 10x faster. Haha so yes, thank you track season, I kept going and that felt great! It was a rewarding feeling. All in all, I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s long run!
It’s that time of year again! That’s right! LONG RUN SEASON!
Which means shirtless 9mi runs in the hot, hot sun!
It was good weather! Hot weather haha. I think it was around the 90s today and we did a great mid-run! Ahhh :) throw in some core in there!
I live for these long runs, they make my life complete. Hahaha oh man.
Hmmm, I don’t really have much to talk about… Hahahah. Oh yeah, I’ve been doing great with my running! My feet have come a long way (haha) and definitely do not hurt as bad as they used too so that’s a good sign! Uhm what else…. Haha, it’s been a month of no mere changes and I have nothing to talk about! I’m sorry! I live a very boring (yet busy) life haha. If that makes any sense.
Well, I’ll keep you all updated and sorry for not posting anything in a while! I’ve been busy, busy, busy! I’ll try to keep you all updated but as far as posting goes, I should have more time now that the end of the school year is close by, but I’ll only be able to have enough time to post about my practices.
All in all, sorry again for the delay!
