I was not motivated at all as we headed out on high recovery today...but we ended up not going down the gully and we did a quality mile grass run at a park 3.5 miles out so I ended up liking our route a lot. My calves were still just so tight...I don't know why they aren't loosening up. But at least they didn't bother my achillies so wahoo. Shoutout to Saltboy for rolling me out/torturing me after the run. Ice bathed and I'm going to roll out again so hopefully my calves will be feeling a bit better tomorrow.

Well it was the "tri-meet" today...even though it turns out all three teams were treating it like a tempo. My calves were still super tight and I was nervous about my achillies, so shoutout to Kaylee for rolling me out. I tried warming up two miles and it felt tight but not too concerning, so I decided to race...but I forgot my watch so also shoutout to Saltboy for letting me borrow his watch. First mile was around 6:40-6:35 and I think the second mile was around 6:20 or so...haha I didn't have my watch. But I got the semi-hollow victory of winning everyone's tempo workout so wahoo. Cooled down two more miles and I could feel my calves tightening a lot, so I didn't go nine. Iced for a long time after.

Well, school is here. Wahoo. We did the kicker today, which I actually felt really mentally strong on, even if my legs were still a bit wrecked. I think my last race definitely broke down some tough mental barriers that have been up for a year or more...I never realized how much I was limiting myself just because I thought I wasn't supposed to be racing next to someone faster than me. Got a new PR of 9:42. The cooldown was...rough. I felt like I was churning wet cement instead of running on pavement. My calves were super tight, and my right Achillies started being pulled a bit by that, but hopefully some ice and rolling out will fix it. Also my wonderful father ran over all my  left toes with a truck on sunday so those guys hurt a bit too. But we got some free and icy cold water bottles at Smiths so shoutout to them.
