Ran about 7 miles at a good pace.  This week the forecast is for some colder weather.  It has been about 65F to 70F but by the end of the week it is supposed to drop down to about 55F.

I have mnade a decision to run the 800m and 1500 meters this coming track season.  Coach says that I don't have the basic speed for a good 800m, but there are only 3 800m runners on our team.  Coach would rather I run the 3000m, but there are so many faster girls and the fastest on our team ran 9:17 last year for 3000m, with the rest right on her heels.  Even if I am not suited for the 800m I think I will have more fun running it.

We had a 800m time trial today for us three that are going to run the 800m.  I was the slowest of the three with a time of 2:33.  I know I can go much faster than that, but I am still just getting back into things, and have not done much to improve speed yet.

After we ran some hill sprints.

Ran an easy 8 miles.

Today we had a meeting for the track team.  I will be in the 800m group.  We got some information about our workouts.  The 800m group will have 2 to 3 hard workouts a week that include 100m, 200m, 400m intervals, hill sprinting, etc.  And also we will be doing 3 days a week of weight lifting.  I have never done much weight lifting before and I have always wanted to, so I am excited for that.

8 easy miles in the cold.  It was about 50F this morning, which I think is the coldest it has been all autumn.  Brrr

I have decided to be in the 800m group for track, but coach wanted me to run in a 3000m time trial today for the long distance team.  

I wasn't excited about it.  As usual I finished in 6th.  Today my time was 10:53.  I know I can go faster than that, but I am just not focused to run that distance right now.

Coach still thinks I would be better at the longer distances than middle distance, but I have made up my mind.

No running today because of hard rain.  But did weight lifting.

In the afternoon it stopped raining and cleared up.

Went with my boyfriend in the evening to see the Christmas lights here.  It was fun.

Very good workout today.  Maybe the best for me in a long time.

Did 5 x 1000m with 10 second rest in between.  They were supposed to be in 3:30.

No.1 No. 2 No. 3 No. 4 No. 5
3:33 3:23 3:25 3:36 3:26

I was happy about the results.  I think it helped me with confidence a little.
