Well today I am doing better - thanks for all the well wishes. I skipped class this morning and went to the health center on campus. The doctor was very nice and thought that I have a gastro-intestinal virus which has been going around. Thankfully my symptoms have been minor but I have to make sure to avoid as much dairy and fat as possible for the next few days when the virus will hopefully work its way out of my system.
She (aka the doctor) wants to keep me out of practice until Thursday but I stopped by my coaches office after my appointment and he said to see how I feel. I did run yesterday and felt fine so I think I will be good to go today as long as I don't push too much!
7x200m warm up
6x200m intervals @ 65% with 200m jog recovery after each
then 5x200m cool down
I went in the ice bath for 17 minutes yesterday and my legs are feeling good. My arms/abs on the other hand are not feeling too good. I did 50 push ups yesterday and now I am so sore from them!!!
Now I am just lounging around and resting!
My track meet this weekend (besides the part where I felt sick) actually went well.
I ran the hurdles faster than before (10.39 seconds) threw shot decently, and then high jumped! For high jump I attempted 4' 8 3/4" and didn't clear the bar but I am happy that I got that far since I am a little rusty!
My head coach was amazing in helping me with high jump. A little background - My coach tried to get me to come out for track my freshman year but due to issues with the basketball coach I didn't run track until spring of my 4th year in college. Basically my basketball coach told me that if I did track I wouldn't start on the basketball team (obviously not the best coach - but I took care of that). Anyway my track coach this weekend kept relating high jump to basketball which was awesome and it worked so well for me! He made me do the motion for a lay-up and then he said ok great now do that when you jump! I just love having a coach who actually knows how to coach and knows how to get me to reach my full potential!
