Just stopping by for a quick check in. I had my first track meet today! I was originally scheduled for the 2 mile, 800, and 200 hurdles buut it changed a tad bit.
I had this super yummy dinner last night for some night-before carbs. Recipe here.
I love the night before races because it’s an excuse to eat pasta.
First of all, of course it was the windiest day we’ve had all year. Makes for a great track meet.
The two mile is the first event in middle school track (very stupid) so I was first to go. I was really hoping to get a gold but when I got there I saw my cross country rival. Ugh. She would normally beat me by less than 30 seconds.
The whole race was suuper tight. I even had the lead at some points. She did have the inside though so on the last straightaway she started going. I ended up losing by less than a second. It sucks, but it shows how much I’ve improved! I didn’t get an official time, but I’m pretty sure it was 12:35. The school record is 12:25 so I have a feeling it might be broken. Especially on a not windy day.
My next event was the 800. Last year, this was my event. Undefeated. Not to be broken this year. I won, my time was 2:50. That needs to improve.. it was super windy though!
So the change… I did shotput! I’ve never done it before (like even practiced) but I thought I’d try it. I ended up getting 25’4″, good for 5th place! I think I’m going to stick with it. It was actually kind of fun! I do have some nice arm muscle ;)
Okay. This is the best video you will ever see. Please watch it.
It is impossible to watch just once. Whenever I’m feeling sad, I watch this. Never fails to make me cry of laughter. Poor girl.
Hahahahaha it is so great.
Have a super Friday!
