I could lie to you and say the fact that I have had an extremely tight hamstring for the last week has not bothered me. But it has.
Am I nervous as @#$%^&*&%$?
Could it be a strained muscle?
Could it be a torn muscle?
Yes, but not likely.
Could it all be in my head..
Aren’t many of the problems we face today?
This will be my lowest milage week in quite some time (which also makes me nervous), but all in good healing my friends. Or at least positive Hollie has won out today. I know pushing miles is stupid right now.
Anyways, today’s blog will mostly be about my scrimmage yesterday.
Yesterday we had a 3 Mile scrimmage against our rival school (full of hella finneee boys…yes). (If you know me well you can picture me saying that in my dayumm that boy is fineee voice…maybe I’ll vlog it one day) Don’t get me wrong-it isn’t the fact, that me and their five top girls go about the same pace. Or the fact that I have often ran with them in training runs because runners in Upstate are far and few around let alone people that run your pace. Oh wait yes, it’s completely that fact and I’m pretty competitive.
But I don’t like to lose. At all. To them. True story…I wasn’t really going for a PR this race (sad to say) more or less a win. I told you I only state the facts.
And I did. I believe I went a 20:5X, but I’m not entirely sure, nor do I care that much because my goal was achieved and it was just a tempo run, plus a scrimmage to prepare for our championship race next weekend.
Oh and incase you wondered, it was a whopping 21 degrees when we ran today.
But all in all, I had a great time as I always do running. The course was pretty frozen (with frost) and covered over by leaves. If you know anything about cross country skiing, this trail is a ski trail that is used as a run trail until it gets too cold/frozen over. (which is soon I presume).
There were even awards given out (lolz). I got first place overall for females today and got an index card that says:
Simply the best, you da woman (with a snickers bar). I love their coach…I want to be best friends.
But enough of that scrimmage. Since I was just whining about my hamstring, it started to hurt at the very tail end of the race. It’s better than when it hurt me so much I couldn’t finish my run at the beginning of the week.
I’m heading into a somewhat taper of this season. I think I’ll do a cross country season recap next weekend sometime followed by a collegiate sports recap. This has been such a ridiculous season for me filled with emotions of sadness led to joy, led to fun, led to ouchies led to now. Yeah I just said ouchies. I told you I’m socially awkward.
Question for you:
- 1. Tell me about your sports rival. I know you have one.
- 2. What’s a humerous award you have received?
