I ran the 1600 in a slower time than at regionals, but a faster time than anything else i’ve ran all year. it was my last race in high school, and probably my race race ever on a track. i didn’t feel too sad about it at the time, because i felt terrible, just catching a bad cold yesterday. that really dampened the excitement for the whole meet.
but my friends on the 4x200 team qualified for state! and i’m the alternate, so i’m going with to la crosse next weekend. i wish i could have worked harder this year and been able to break 6 and qualify for state, but that’s not what my season allowed. i’m glad i was able to get back to the shape i was last year, with a 6:17 in the mile.
now it’s time to take a rest week and then start my summer training. college cross country is a whole new level in my running, and i hope i can meet my expectations for myself in the next 4 years.
