Outdoor Track State Meet

I am going to make this short and sweet.

Friday morning I left with my team for the Track State meet. It was a two day meet with half the events on Friday and the other half on Saturday. Friday I had Long Jump and the 4x800m Relay and Saturday I had shot put and long jump.

Due to my cold, I ended up only competing on Friday. Long Jump was horrendous and the 4x800m relay was not much better. I ran a 2:43 split and felt like I was going to die after the first 300m. My coach said I looked like I had no leg lift and I agreed as my hip hurt for most of the race.

I think with the cold and having competed Sunday and Monday, I was just burnt out. Thank goodness I had three other great teammates on my relay team who ran great and helped us get a third place finish!

Saturday my coach pulled me from my events because I wasn't feeling good. I ended up taking pictures of all the girls running and just supporting and cheering on the team. With my rinky dink canon camera was able to capture a few good pictures but nothing compared to the ones that B-Rabbit takes with his camera!

Anyway today it is back to the grind with practice. I am just hoping to get over this silly cold as soon as possible!! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

REcovery can take a lonnng time. Sounds like you've been working a lot and being careful about those injuries, but patience can be tough when it takes so long. Hang in there!

Feel better J. You need to recover and get your legs under you before you can put up a good effort on the track.
