It was 9 when I started working on my french II online class, then next thing I know I've done like a trimester of work and it's 2:30. I totally skipped lunch which I regret. 9 miles from the park down main to the rec, down Vernal Ave, up to Air Village, down Aggie back to the car. The first couple miles I dropped into the 5's too many times(I shouldn't have at all) I slowed down at maybe 2.5 miles in. My achilles was tight after that, and it kept irritating me to the point where I stopped for a couple minutes to stretch it out as a precaution. It wasn't feeling better during the stretches so I resolved I'd run back to my house and get a ride to my car if it didn't feel better when I started running again. Suprisingly enough it felt fine when I started running again. I stopped again at 7 miles because it bugged me again, I think it's the worn down peg's, and finished at 9 at 7:19 pace. I'll be dabbing tonight.

Ran a warmup lap and wasn't feeling it in my achilles, so I biked 45 minutes at a higher resistance, got probably a little over 10 miles in. I was on the side of the track as the 4x400 time trials were going on. I'm running my trial on wednesday and it looks like I'm going to have to haul. 58's or bust. S/O to Christian for winning it in 56.01, that's sick #Ateamanchor Achilles feels better than yesterday, and that's without ibuprofen. Tomorrow will be tenative. Lunaracers feel great.

For today the advanced choir had to do singing valentines to sweeties for most of the day, but luckily we got off for my favorite class: Advanced Choir! So I had to sing all day and then I went to AP bio, then after that; practice for solo's for choir! I was so tired by the time I went to practice. Mile warmup, then my 400 trial. All the distance guys were tired, but not tired enough to not stay and cheer for me, so that was cool. Clayton was nice enough to pace me. We started and I held back so I could give Clayton the lead for the time being. The pace wasn't hard, but I relaxed a little too much and gave Clayton a maybe 5m lead. Second lap I'm slowly gaining on him, but he beat me. It's hard trying to muster the kick to pass when 90 degree turns are a common thing. I ran a 59.2 which I'm cool with. I was going to do a long cooldown, but I got the ever slight irritation in my achilles that made me cut it short and proceed with some good core. Coaches said they didn't want to screw anyone over by kicking them out since I missed the initial trial, but that they're trying for a 4x800 and I'd be in that. Pretty good, tiring day. I found out afterwards that Christian bought singing valentines to two unnamed gals in our school, addressed "To: xxxxx, from Nathan, for Old Times Sake?" lol what a bag. Also I found out I got accepted to Purdue and Georgia Tech, but both under strange conditions I've never heard of #goodproblems?

4... Stepping it up! Achilles was kind of there throughout but it wasn't a bother. After I went to the rockwall where Trey and Steven were working, and since it wasn't busy we played a game of add-on that involved some pretty technical stuff for like 2 hours which was a rad workout. Achilles doesn't feel too bad now, and I haven't even taken the ibuprofen yet.

Blocked out achilles bothering during the run. Wasn't awful but still annoying, if Simplot weren't around the corner I'd take some time off, but it's drawing close, so I'll just take it easy.

Mile on the treadmill, then it turned off. 20 minutes on the bike, I went really hard at a good incline and it claimed I went 8 miles. Mile on the elliptical after.
