Athlete Formal

Every year the athletic committee holds a formal for all the athletes. As this is my last year as an athlete and since I had never been before I thought I should go and experience it.

I met up with Abby and Alison (and their dates) before hand and we all went together. It was a really fun time and the theme was James Bond which was really cool. Heres some pictures!

Sprinter Girls - Alison, me and Abby


Sunday I went to the gym and ran 4 miles on the treadmill. First mile and a half was easy at 8:13 min/mile pace then I increased to 7:30 min/mile for the next mile and half. When I got to 3 miles I reduced my speed to 8 min/mile pace to recover for half a mile then increased to 7:30 pace for the last half mile to equal 4. Overall I felt really good on the treadmill. I think taking Saturday off helped me to recover from the week and the meet.

Yesterday at practice we did 300m sprints with 1 minute rest after then 100m sprints all at 90%. Abby sprained her finger or something so she had to go to the emergency room so she wasn't there so I ran with the boys. I ran two sets of these sprints with a ten minute rest between and was very consistent with my times, which I think is good but not sure.

Happy Tuesday! Christmas is almost here!!

I second with X-Country Square. There is a huge transformation from being a runner outside and going into formal attire. Looks like you had fun.
