I am still bummed about the relay stuff...The roster for this weekends meet came out and I am an alternate for the 4x400m relay...whatever that means!
I feel like my coach doubts my ability and thinks that I am still injured and therefore can't run. Well I have been running fine in practice and I have Heptathlon States in less than 2 weeks so obviously I am fine if I plan on doing 7 events in two days!
Yesterdays workout was a welcome relief and helped me to clear my mind. We did 5x400m repeats and for the first time doing this workout I had no hip pain. I feel stronger, faster, and better than ever!
In 10 days I will compete in heptathlon - my first, last and only chance to do something amazing! With graduation a little over a month away and track ending sooner than that I am really starting to realize that I don't have much time left. I think that is why I was getting so emotional yesterday about the relay!
Anyway, today I will be practicing high jump and hopefully no more chin to my chest while jumping!! For the relay - I just have to trust that things will work out in the best way for me. And if my coach gives me the chance to run the relay I will leave everything on the track!
Thanks for all your kind comments! Have a great Wednesday!
