12 mile bike ride: success! Ahh I didn’t realize how much I’d missed the feeling of biking until today! Tomorrow is my last IB exam- French. Need to go cram now booo. Later tonight my super cool jazz musician friend has a gig at some sushi restaurant so my friends and I are going to go eat sushi/hear his combo play. Let’s be real though- I’m in it for the sushi haha.
Bike ride tomorrow morning I’m excited It’s been like 9 months since I’ve ridden Yippeeeee!! ps I was super brave tonight at work and now guess what omg going hiking with a super cute guy next weekend meep
One of my friends took third at state in the 1600! She is the biggest inspiration ever, coming off injury after injury. She ran a 5:02.07.
Debating on introducing myself in the facebook group for my incoming college class…it’s fascinating and extremely puzzling to me as to why so many out of state students would come to the most culturally bland state in the country. They’re all so excited- I don’t get it. I wish I could be as happy as they are about college starting. For me, it’s still a stinging slap...
I’m really looking forward to tomorrow because I’m going to a yoga class at 6:00am before school! I haven’t done yoga in AGES so I’m super excited. I’m supposed to be on my post season break of a week off, but I’m only two days in and already itching to run. I think I’m going to make myself rest until Monday, when I’ll start biking to cross train....
I am so sleepy today for no good reason- I got enough sleep last night. Must be a side effect of senioritis in its final stages.

Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm a track athlete (triple jump/high jump in particular) And I want to stay in shape before I begin my summer training so I was thinking of taking up running which will also help with my endurance in jumps. I was wondering if you could maybe give me a starter running workout routine or plan to go by for the next few weeks? Thanks so much!
three cups of coffee later and I can’t concentrate on anything
I had just finished eating my usual oatmeal/peanut butter bowl of happiness for breakfast when my dad came home and he was just at the best bakery ever and he brought back an eclair for me and omg I refuse to eat an eclair from anywhere else unless I am in france again soooo yummyyyyy
So basically my parents are infuriatingly ignorant of everything you’re supposed to support your kid in, from college apps to even knowing when graduation is.
Region championships were today I ran the 800 and pr’d wooohooo!!!! and that was after 4 hours of testing, mind you. so I’m sad that this was my last big race, but I still have the “for fun” meet on tuesday for one more chance to race the 1600
IN HONOR OF IB TESTING: I was bored...
IB: A.K.A. International Baccalaureate - A malicious program aimed at the unnaturally brighter population in an attempt to overload their brains, thus reducing them to vegetables without lives
IB: Teaching students how to turn shit into gold!
: It is not until their fourth year in this fraudulent program that the participants realize that this course has no effect on the colleges to which they intend to apply. By this time, the student has already dedicated thousands of hours to this corporation (doubt not that it is indeed a corporation) and human nature insists that they complete the program.
Non-IB student: Hey you want to go hang out tonight?
IB student: Sorry, I can't. I have a chemistry formal report due tomorrow, I have to read about 100 pages for biology, read an entire Shakespeare play, write a research paper about Stalin, do an entire chapter of calculus, and volunteer for 8 hours too.
Non-IB student: Damn.
: They deliberately ask questions which make 2+2 look complicated.
IB kids: Smart enough to get in, dumb enough to stay in
I wish I could say that school is winding down, but as of this week, the craziness of testing has just started! Ahhh so many IB tests my hand is already dying Region championships are next week…my event tbd, but it will be either the 1600 or the 800 Prom is tomorrow weeeeee. We’re going paragliding before say wut I just had a delicious bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, raisins, and...
Saying “come over” to someone who lives 1734739 miles away from you
Goooood morning everyone! I woke up this morning so sore that I laid in bed for an hour before I got up. I raced the 1600 and 800 yesterday before going to work, so my legs hate me right now. Races went well. I didn’t hit the times I wanted but I was within a few seconds, so I’m alright with it. Today is going to be busy. Soooo, happy Sunday and au revoir!
I just had a PB&J on two blueberry-whole-grain-whatever waffles since we were out of bread and can I just say, YUM, 10/10 would recommend a waffle sandwich
guys I just agreed to go out to lunch tomorrow with a guy who I’m pretty sure likes me (that’s not meant to sound pretentious, just an observation) eep like who am I this does not happen to me ever omg what is going on there must have been some freak planetary alignment or something that’s screwing around with my life and oh ps I don’t know him that well but...
Hey y’all. School is getting out of hand- I have so much to do that it’s a little overwhelming. Anyway, track is keeping me sane. Today’s wonderful workout: 9x300m (broken into sets of three: 300 fast, 100 walk, 300 faster, 100 walk, 300 a little faster than the second, 400 jog, repeat) plus about 2.5 miles warm up/cool down Aaaaand core. I have been a total slacker about...
Sunday: 4.5 miles Monday: 8x200m with 200m jog in between, mile warm up, 1.5 mile cool down. GREAT WORKOUT, only good part about monday Tuesday (today): 5 miles, surprisingly felt really beat up from yesterday- tight hamstrings and sore quads. Shhh I actually love the feeling of a hard workout the day after
I drove by a flower shop today and their sign said “Secret Aries Day April 24” and I was like, “What is Secret Aries Day???” I’m an Aries so I thought I’d be aware even though I’m not into astrology. and then I realized it said “Secretaries Day.” lol joke’s on me
