Personal:

My mom ran with me when she was pregnant with me and so I must've caught the bug! I've been running with Racecats for a couple years now and I really like it. I'm getting pretty fast too. I need to work on consistent running, because I have big dreams, but kind of want to get there without working for it! (my mom might be typing this for me...and if I discovered she told everyone my name was Fartlek I might dis-own her!)

I'm in 3rd grade this year and training with Racecats Elite program. If you are in elementary or middle school, you should join us!

AP of 8:47 for the miles. I did different loops around the elementary while my brother did ultimate frisbee practice. Mom let me wear her Garmin and sent me on some fun loops. The miles went by fast!

Warm-up laps and then fun games with Summit Academy's XC team that mom coaches. I displayed really awesome sportsmanship! We were running 2 laps (1/2 mile) and I started pushing to catch the kid in front. I passed him and then he sped up. The last tenth of a mile we were neck and neck and I pushed to finish about a half stride ahead of him. Mom was impressed with our competitveness and she turned around to congratulate us and saw I went over to the kid and shook his hand and told him "Good job! Thanks for pushing the pace." It made my mom proud! :) (maybe she is writing this entry without my help...)

At race cats Elite we worked on intervals and I ran one less than everyone because my hamstring was kind of bothering me. I told mom that it feels like a ball popped out in my muscle. Taking it easy and stretching and having mom massage it.

5K with mom on the classic 5K route around the neighborhood. Saw a rainbow and felt good by the end.

Mom encouraged me to run my 2 miles while Nathan and Jake did frisbee. I didn't think I wanted to and my stomach hurt. But I decided my goal of going to Junior Nationals was important and I needed to put in the work if I wanted the results. Mom can be so right sometimes! :P

8:32 and 8:20 AP for the miles.

Two miles at racecats with mom and two miles at Elite practice. 

We did pacing practice at Summit and I worked hard on my Horse and Cheetah pace laps. 

Did progressive run laps at Elite. Mom let me take her Garmin, so it was fun to see exactly how far I ran and how fast. Except sometimes I would forget to stop and start it...

Jordan school district meet for Racecats. 

I did a warm-up lap and drills with the team and then did the race. I felt strong and my splits were: 4:54, 5:08, 5:18

That is an AP of 8:15/mile. 

I lost my shoe on the final sprint into the finish and then was a little upset because my foot hurt from the little rocks on the path. Nothing stops the runner!

RAD'S RECAP:

Ran the Blackridge trail with Herriman Racecats elite. Ran all the uphill with no problem near the front of the group. Mom chased me on the downhill and passed me at the finish, but I led the full mile+ downhill! 

ADAM'S RECAP:

I liked it a lot and it was a nice and easy jog, but kind of fast. The last quarter, my mom beat me!

Mom drug me on a trail run. It was too long and I didn't like the shooting. But, we got an antler and I've never seen a real one before, so it was cool!

Racecats Monday Meet!

Adam ran the 2K with his elementary school (Summit Academy) in 9:11 and finished right with a teammate! It was fun to watch them working together and pushing each other. 

Then he did the 3K with the Elites. A great time and he felt good about his effort. 

Afterward we FROZE. It was crazy cold and so we stopped to get egg-drop soup on the way home :)

I didn't do any running, but spent the morning walking around Draper on a field trip with my mom for school. 

Then I worked hard in the yard the rest of the weekend ripping out sod and putting new sod back in!

Did the Blackridge Racecats trail loop with Elite, plus a warm-up and cool down. It was a good run!

Adam ran the U5K, because I was working and he LOVES the U!! So he wanted the medal and the t-shirt. Plus, I figured it would be a good race practice for him. 

He met Tom Slick and saw his friend Sharva there as well. He had a great time on the 5K (only 10 seconds or so from a PR) and it was a much more difficult course. Because his PR is at DesNews 5K. When I told him that at the finish he said "mom, it was mostly downhill! It was easy." ha! I know they ran from the social work building up to the Huntsman center and THAT is a tough hill! Plus it was a loop and they went to President's circle as well. But, I'm glad he thinks it was easy! 

He then ran the kids 1K and it was as stacked as the 5K was...so with having 12-14 year olds to compete against both places, he came in 4-6 in the kids race. But, he loved the experience and actually won the BIG raffle prize! But, we didn't let him claim it. So he got a girls t-shirt that none of the girls in this family will fit into :P 

I'm just glad he had a good time and enjoys running so much!

Another Monday Racecats meet!
 

The one on the report is for his 3K time. His 2K time was 9:14 and he was in 7th place overall and in AG

This was a PR on a 3K for him, so it was fun to see him work hard! Not a PR on the 2K, but I think he likes running the 3K better :)

Adam ran just at Elite today. No elementary practice with mom. Coaches said it was a good workout and 3.5-4 miles, so I'm giving him 3.5 :)

3 slow miles uphill with mom from the Rec center after dropping off the car for Lauren (Adam's big sister). When he finished Adam said "I don't feel like I'm having any fun, I just feel like I'm SUFFERING!" So, I think it wasn't a great run for him :) But, we take the good and bad, right? Plus he had 2 big days before this. We all need some recovery.

Racecats with mom! Elementary practice only. We did the Square Pyramid. Mom made a square/rectangle course that was about .15 miles total. We sprinted one side, recovered one side, sprinted 2, recovered 2 .... all the way to 4  and then did another 4 and worked our way back down. 

Then we did some sprinting strides as well. A good workout!

Elite team run with hills! 

Mom ditched out and went to Nathan's ultimate frisbee game, so  she just has to go with what I told her.
