Daily Note

3mi Wu, 3k steeple 5th place, 3mi CD. Had a dream last night that we were hanging with Paul. Not many dreams I have like that so I wanted to make sure I had a good race. Also wanted to try to set a tone for the team for the day, but none the less I was still nervous as fuck thinking about my failure last year. Got off the line well and was in the front pack for a couple of laps, then Noah made his move and I let him go feeling controlled and confident in my fitness to hold where I was which was 7th. I told Mike heading in to tell me when to make a move since I wouldn’t know when. I heard him tell me to go with maybe 1200 and I started to work and got two guys. 9:45 for a 26 second PR. I’m not sure if I could have done anything more. Personal redemption from last year. I feel like I finally just said fuck it like I did my senior year of swim dropping 10 seconds in the 100 fly, or just passing people at Paul Short because I was confident in my miles. Definitely couldn’t have done it without coach Touey, Mike, and Ryan and more importantly the support from my brothers in this log. Lets go into battle again tomorrow and see what happens. “Run for Others, Not Yourself”
