ole miss track meet

i obviously have no idea what i am doing.

plain and simple.

i am angry, actually, i am beyond angry.  steeple yesterday, SUCKED.   sure, i ran a decent time for my first steeple, 11:00.  but.....the water pits alone cost me 25 seconds because YES, i stopped on every single one of them (ok, my second jump had some grace) but all the other ones, no, i stopped dead in my tracks ANNNND in the process bruised my heel (i hope that is all it is) so bad that i now can not walk normally.  yes, i will be getting crutches tomorrow because im not risking another injury by compensating for my heel.

i'm not mad at my time nor even how i raced.  i'm mad at my technique, i'm mad that i don't have experience, i'm mad that now i'm probably going to have to take off AT LEAST a week (which i can't afford) .  yeah, you may say i'm exaggerating, but i'm not.  i know my body, i know degrees of pain. and this isn't something i should be messing with.  this is stupid. this is frustrating.  this all could have been avoided if i jumped the water pits correctly or had more practice over the barriers.  i swear i didn't go over the barrier ten times in practice before i raced it.  ugh i just want to cuss really really loud and scream and just be angry.  DUMB!

that being said, i got a ton of great pictures from the meet as a whole.  it would have been an enjoyable day had i been able to walk around, but the pain suppressed any endorphins that may have been produced.

it's hot.
i'm annoyed.
i'm angry.
i just want to cry.

ok, so i will.

  1. I can't imagine how hard the steeple must be but you are super tough and will kill it soon! Great pictures!
