hey guys i need more running blogs to follow so REBLOG THIS IF YOU’RE A RUNBLR PLEASE
i don’t know why i decided on saturday night that my season was over. i’m less than a minute from my big, big goal of 25:30 and i have one race left to accomplish it. my last race would have been it if i hadn’t given up mentally. i have the training, endurance, and speed that i need. i just need the mental toughness.
i usually perform the best when a deadline is hanging over my head. every year in high school i would run my best at conference so i could hit my goal. so this year is no different. the course may not be ideal, but i know it’s going to be fast. i just need to forget about inner-team competition and go at my race with focus. this goal, it isn’t for my team or my coach, it’s for me. it’s to prove to myself that i can run at a collegiate level and not be embarrassed. 25:30 is respectable on my team. and i need to get there to make everything i’ve done in the last 9 months worth it.
I don’t like my team anymore. Only one of my roommates hasn’t quit and it’s just a weird environment. My brothers not on the team anymore. And at least two guys I’ve had a thing with so that is two less people I want to see. And a lot of the newcomers are really annoying.
I am so happy that I only have two weeks left and tomorrow is the last away meet. I don’t like the team dynamic.
Anton Krupicka > everything
Or ultra runners in general for that matter.
Took 4 days completely off of running. Probably should have cross trained but I didn’t. 3 weeks left of my season, and I hope this time off will mentally and physically invigorate me for the rest of the season.
Eau Claire was a breakthrough race, but I still have two races to hit big-time PRs. My season is just beginning. Time to work hard and get sharp for two big races.
