And we did it and on for about 10 minutes. Then we fell off for a few minutes, but they caught up to us in the way back and we stay with them the rest of the way there. It felt really good to be able to run with them. I&rsquo;ve found if I want to stay with them I have to be in the middle. When I&rsquo;m in the back I just kinda give up and fall off.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; font-stretch: normal; font-size: 17px; line-height: normal; font-family: &quot;.SF UI Text&quot;; color: rgb(69, 69, 69); min-height: 20.3px;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; font-stretch: normal; font-size: 17px; line-height: normal; font-family: &quot;.SF UI Text&quot;; color: rgb(69, 69, 69);"><span style="font-family: &quot;.SFUIText&quot;; font-size: 17pt;">Rad thing of the day: Roberts analogy of pain and chocolate.

It was sad that Anna had to leave, and every time Roberts said &ldquo;find your teammates&rdquo; I had no teammates I could run with. I tired a few times to stay with the girls but it was just too fast. I definitely slowed down on the last 2, probably because I was going too fast on the other ones.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; font-stretch: normal; font-size: 17px; line-height: normal; font-family: &quot;.SF UI Text&quot;; color: rgb(69, 69, 69); min-height: 20.3px;">W</p> <p style="margin: 0px; font-stretch: normal; font-size: 17px; line-height: normal; font-family: &quot;.SF UI Text&quot;; color: rgb(69, 69, 69);"><span style="font-family: &quot;.SFUIText&quot;; font-size: 17pt;">Rad Thing of The Day: I&rsquo;ve got a rad idea for a video, that I&rsquo;ll tell everyone what it is once I&rsquo;ve got the script written.</span></p> Tue, 14 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 13, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-13-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>Minutes: 50</p> <p>Running by yourself in the dark is scary. So I went to my neighborhood and ran there for a little bit before heading back to the high school.</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 20</p> <p>It was a nice run, Anna, Ashlee, Landon, and me all ran together and talked about Landon&rsquo;s movie. We ran a pretty solid pace and it felt pretty great.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: Got both my runs in today</p> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 10, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-10-2017.html <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 65</p> <p>Run started off great and ended great. I hadn&#39;t felt very good throughtout the whold day but once I started running everything just melted away. This is why I love running it allows me to forget my probelms and just run. Going up the hill was really fun. I love running up that hill, it hurts but the feeling of making it to the top outweights the pain. And going down outweights both. I also love doing long runs. I just get to talk to my friends the whole time about anything and everything. This is why I miss Anna and ashlee so much when they don&#39;t show up, or can&#39;t stay with me.&nbsp;</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: This moring my mom told me about her gang she use to be in called the &quot;Rad Gang&quot; it was her and her best friend from high school that were in it. I thought it sounded pretty rad. Anyone want to make a cool rad gang with me?</p> Fri, 10 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 09, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-09-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>I went to weights but because of some lame band practice at 7 I couldn&rsquo;t go running, which made me really sad. I should have just been late to the band thing.</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 50</p> <p>The run was great. I felt great the whole time, even going up that hill by sunrise tires. I love running the fore master loop but I didn&rsquo;t think I could make it in 50 minutes so we turned back and went back down that hill. Coming back Ashlee would not let me slow down or even just be behind her. Me and her stayed together the whole way back, expect right after 2450.&nbsp;</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: XC Banquet was today it was really rad</p> Thu, 09 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 08, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-08-2017.html <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 64</p> <p>The workout was killer today, I had thought that it would go well. I was excited for it and felt great during the warm-up. But as soon as we started our first 1000 I couldn&rsquo;t keep up with Anna. The second one was a bit better, and the third was probably my best, the fourth killed and I knew Anna was probably dying too. And the last one was pretty good, I was a little off pace on that one. I liked doing two sets of striders though. One and the beginning and one at the end. The workout turned out pretty good. But my legs are killing, I&rsquo;m going to roll and ice tonight for sure.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: Anna likes this boy, and the boy said something really cute to her and I thought that was rad, but she thought it was creepy.</p> Wed, 08 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 07, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-07-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>Minutes: 15</p> <p>I actually made it to weights! I benched 5, deadlifted 25, and squatted 35. I also did 60 100 ups. And was actually taking them seriously today. Not doing them just to do them.</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 50</p> <p>The run started off bad. I could barley run to Hart&rsquo;s. I wanted to turn back so bad. But I got through it and about 15 minutes into my run it felt good and solid. I ran into green springs and pass the two churches, which is a or farther than I&rsquo;ve ever gone. I kept glancing at my watching, waiting for it to hit the 25 mark so I could turn around, but once it hit I just wanted to keep going. I did turn around though and got lost in thought on the way back. My thoughts were broken when the varsity boys passed me, and coach holt told me good job. I ran back even faster than I went out and had to do 3 or 4 minutes around the school to complete my 50 minutes.&nbsp;</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I made it to morning practice</p> Tue, 07 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 06, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-06-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>Minutes: 38</p> <p>Hey look at me I&#39;m actually running in the morings again. But sadly I slept in until 6 am. (Okay that was a weird sentence, I can&#39;t believe that 6 is sleeping in for me) So I went running with Cameron. We ran down Mall Drive, and hopped on that trail down there. We did a fast finish, and that felt great. I&#39;m glad I got a little bit of a run in, but I&#39;m for sure going to be at practice tomorrow&nbsp;moring and Thursday, no sleeping in.</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 20</p> <p>Ashlee and Anna talked about form, and our plans to fix it. I&rsquo;m going to work on looking forward, instead of down. As for the run, it was good. We ran down to 2450 and back.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I got to read Cam&rsquo;s old blog posts this morning. All of you should go check out March 5th, 2015, and read the comment section. But that be a little creepy stalkerish so you choose</p> Mon, 06 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 04, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-04-2017.html <p>Minutes: 60</p> <p>It was really hard to get up for the workout. I did it though, and Cam and I were early to practice. I was excited for the workout, this is proably my favorite kind of workout that we do, and I was excited that Cam was there too. There were only 8 girls there. Anna sadly wasn&#39;t one of them. I ended up by myself after about the second half of each&nbsp;set. But seeing the girls not too far ahead was encourging. Everyone of them stayed together, expect for Addi and me. Addi did get up there during the 3rd and 4th set though, and I was really proud of her for doing that. Cam ran with me on the last CV, he apoligezed for not running with me the whole workout, but I was fine. The girls ahead of me gave me the push I needed throughout the whole workout. During the second set, coach told me I had good form, and I tried to keep that good form the rest of the workout. Overall the workout was great.</p> <p>Rad Thing of the Day: I got my Saturday run in!</p> Sat, 04 Nov 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Nov 03, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-03-2017.html <p>Minutes: 70</p> <p>Knowing I had a 70 minute run made me not want to even go to practice. This week has been really hard for me, and my body and especially&nbsp;my mind are ready for a break. I think this weekend will be the break I need. Anyways the run was fun. We went pretty fast out, and slowed down the whole way back. Doing the hills helped us keep our speed up though. Anna and I were only planning on doing 65 minutes, but because of how long it took for us to get back, we got 70.</p> <p>Rad Thing of the Day: I ran over the bridge for the first time.</p> Fri, 03 Nov 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Nov 02, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-02-2017.html <p>Minutes: 45</p> <p>I was really nervous for the race, I&#39;d never race more than a mile on the track and wasn&#39;t sure how I would do. I was hoping around a 15 16 minute time, and I got 14:20, so I&#39;m really happy. My first mile was about 6:50 ish so I slowed down during the second mile. I&#39;m going to work on that. I liked racing 2 miles on the track and I think I&#39;m going to try it during track season.&nbsp;</p> <p>Rad Thing of the Day: I got to go home right after school.</p> Thu, 02 Nov 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Nov 01, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-01-2017.html <p>Minutes: 55</p> <p>We run to Middleton, stopped at Anna&#39;s then made the run into a loop. I felt really great once I started going.&nbsp;</p> <p>Rad Thing of the Day: I got money because I went babysitting</p> Wed, 01 Nov 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 31, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-31-2017.html <p>Minutes: 30</p> <p>Halloween run was fun. Everyone had some pretty cool costumes</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I got to eat ice cream :)</p> Tue, 31 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 30, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-30-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>I slept in and missed the run.</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 35</p> <p>It really hurt to run today. I don&rsquo;t think I went very fast and my legs were just killing the whole time.</p> Mon, 30 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 25, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-25-2017.html <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 60</p> <p>I was going to go to morning practice but after yesterday&rsquo;s run I decided I needed to sleep in. I was excited for the workout, plus Anna could run with me the whole time. We did the 3k 5k 8k 8k 5k 3k workout. It felt really good. The last 3 minute coach holt come and ran the last 20 seconds with us pushing us through it. The rest of the 3 minutes coach Roberts was yelling at Anna to push with me, and everytime he said that I would go faster. During the workout, everytime I wanted to walk, I would think of Nike and how I want to PR at the race.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I learned about not real numbers in math and it made sense.</p> Wed, 25 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 24, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-24-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>Minutes: 15</p> <p>Weights was pretty good, I got to bench press (which is my favorite) The run after was good too</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 40</p> <p>Sadly Anna had to go to dance so she didn&rsquo;t get to run very long with me. I didn&rsquo;t feel very good. Probably have just been getting a lot of minutes in that my legs aren&rsquo;t use to anymore.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: Went to weights for the first time in forever!</p> Tue, 24 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 23, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-23-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>Minutes: 60</p> <p>My watched died half way through. But the run was pretty good</p> <p>PM</p> <p>Minutes: 20</p> <p>Running in circles is only fun if you have someone to run with. Luckily Anna was finally back!</p> Mon, 23 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Oct 21, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-21-2017.html <p>Minutes: 60</p> <p>I woke up at 11 and knew that I needed to get up and run but just didn&rsquo;t have the motivation. Cameron come into my room a few minutes later and asked if I wanted to run. I agreed and we went and did dino cliffs trail. It was really fun just to be away from all the noise of traffic and see the beautiful world we live in. It was kinda hard for me to breath the whole time, but i got use to it and was able to do the full 60 minutes. Overall the run was great, but I was glad to get back to the car and be able to stop and drink some water.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I got my Saturday run in</p> Sat, 21 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 20, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-20-2017.html <p>Minutes: 50</p> <p>I stayed with the top girls for 13 minutes, and then my legs started to realize just how fast I was going and I fell way back. Coming back was all up hill and it killed</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I have my Halloween costume all ready</p> Fri, 20 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 19, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-19-2017.html <p>Minutes: 40</p> <p>I stayed with the top girls for 10 minutes, then began to fall off. I turned back before they did and even though my legs were in so much pain and I could barley breath, it was one of the best runs I&#39;ve had in a long time. Ready for great things to happen in my coming years of XC. In my last blog post I said I was going to run at state next year, this is only going to happen if I start to put in the work today. I&#39;m going to keep pushing myself during this post season, and I&#39;m going to PR by a lot at Nike. I&#39;m going to keep trying to stay with the top girls, eventually. Hopefully before track season though</p> <p>Rad thing of the day: Despite sleeping in until 8 am I made it to school on time :)</p> Thu, 19 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Oct 18, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-18-2017.html <p>AM</p> <p>Minutes: 20</p> <p>Nice chill run. And yes I mean chill, it was freezing.</p> <p>Cheering was fun and the girls and boys both did amazing.</p> <p>Rad thing of the day: WE WON STATE!!!</p> <p>(Side note, I&#39;m running at state next year)</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 17, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-17-2017.html <p>Minutes: 25</p> <p>Didn&#39;t feel very good all day. I didn&#39;t sleep very well and didn&#39;t feel like eating at all. I did force myself to eat a little bit for lunch.</p> <p>Rad thing of the day: Got to hang out on a bus with my team</p> Tue, 17 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 16, 2017 http://Kbrown.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-16-2017.html <p>Minutes: 25</p> <p>We went really slow and I didn&#39;t feel like running at all.</p> <p>Rad Thing of The Day: I got to see my friends again after a long weekend</p> Mon, 16 Oct 2017 06:00:00
