Daily Note

PM: 3 mile WU on the rail trail, race, 2 mile CD. 4x8 was Ben, Josh, Kevin, and then me. Got the baton in 8th and with an Alvernia guy about 10 meters ahead of me so I spent the entire first lap just trying to close in on him, but I wasn't making up too much difference. Came around the second lap and saw that we were both pulling in the Kings guy that was just ahead of Alvernia. Coach told me with about 200 to go that I could get both of them. Tried to put together the best kick that I could, but could only get the Kings guy and finished right behind the Alvernia bro. Total time was 7:58.7 and official split was 1:56.49. Have to be happy about the fast split, but wish I could've pulled through and got the other guy. After the race my legs were in shambles and was just forcing myself to keep walking around after I got off the ground. Wasn't feeling too well all through up until the awards ceremony. Immediately afterward I went over and threw up everything I had in my system. Felt slightly better and cooled down for 2 miles and got in a good stretch
