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.
