Soul
I'm listening to: 
the sound of shoes on a track and my breathing
I'm grateful for: 
the ability to do the workout
Tomorrow's goals...: 
If we do another core workout anytime soon, I want to be able to go at a pace that I can carry out throughout the 30 second interval. I was taking breaks because I was going too fast, but I need to work my way up to a higher speed.
Journal entry: 
It was raining all day today, and the track was wet. Our next week is two weeks away, so our coach didn't want us to use our spikes on the wet track. So, the team did core. We started off with a light 400 meter warm up (1 lap). After that, we did our dynamics and we stretched before we actually performed the workout. Our coach split the team between the jumpers, the throwers, and the ones who do neither. I did neither jumping or throwing, so I got to do my core workout before the other groups did. For the first round of the workout, we did 2 sets of 30 second planks and then we did squats for thirty seconds. Then, we did 2 sets of mountain climbers and back lunges. Then, we did two sets of crunches and side lunges. To end that round, we ran another 400 meter, but this time it was supposed to be a little quicker. For the next round of the workout, we needed a partner; we did wheelbarrow runs. I hated that; my wrists hurt after the run, and my partner's shoulder started hurting. We will never participate in that again. After the wheelbarrows, we had another quick lap to run, and the last round was a repeat of the first round exercises. We ended the practice with a slow 400 cool down lap and we stretched down. It wasn't that hot outside, so I'm thankful for that because I really would have been sweating.
