Well tonight was a surprisingly good workout. 5x200 done when i didn't really feel like i had the energy to do it, banging headache, lack of sleep, tired legs from gym yesterday, mentally tired from work. Even to the point of scribbling the session off my journal to promise to do it tomorrow instead. It took me the short walk to the car after work to decide to do the session anyway and just see how it turned out. Id only moan if i missed it anyway. Turns out it was faster than the last time i did the session, which was nice. I probably need to remember just because things sometime seem impossible doesn't mean they are. 😊 #tracknation#adidasrunning#masterstrackandfield
Learn from the repost from Nick Symmonds below. I was only a one time state medalist (three time state qualifier) from a small state but I still found a way onto a D1 team because I worked my tail off playing the recruiting game (countless emails/phonecalls and 11 school visits). Don't be fooled - if you don't take the time to email a Coach or fill out a college team's prospective student-athlete questionnaire online then they probably won't take notice of your high school accomplishments. Get registered with the NCAA Clearinghouse and start to sell yourself early!
Despite being a 9x State Champ in high school, I was not offered a single athletic scholarship. I went on to run in 2 Olympic Games. Young athletes, your running career can last decades if you want it to! But you must follow the path that is right for you.
