Car rides there and back were super fun! Didn't make much progress on a book I really need to finish but fun fact: my Dad and Steve's Dad both grew up in Oak Lawn and were on the same XC team for two years in high school. Also Steve and I went to the same places in Oak Lawn growing up. Small world.
Hung around in the gym all day thank goodness and passed the time with the team <3 but anytime I thought about the race I turned into a big negative potato. I was not excited. Considering my lack of enthusiasm/motivation, the weather, and how tired I've felt all week I guess this wasn't the WORST thing ever but still not happy at all. I'm only giving it a 4/10 b/c I definitely could have gone faster and I knew I could have gone faster but I didn't. Very briefly went out near Emma, but then let her go and then let a bunch of other girls pass me that I should have beaten. Don't feel like I really had a race this season where I went as fast as I could have but it wasn't too shabby a season for my first season back and actually training. Tons of fun though.
I'm now starting a week long or maybe a little longer break before I start running for XC. XC is my one true love and I can't wait. During the break I'm going to focus on taking my iron and making sure my shins feel fresh as hell when I start running again.
