Looking at all my times I ran during 9th grade cross country, I only improved by 5 seconds. I guess the effects of those bad habits were hitting me.
11th grade cross country season was amazing. I improved by over 1 minute and 30 seconds from the year before, broke the school record and went to states.
Crystal Springs is a hilly course (comparable to Mt. Sac) that we run a lot of our races at, so it makes it easy to track your progress.
Even though it was my slowest 5k of the season, and I would normally be upset, but the whole 4 day event was just too awesome, even a bad race couldn't ...
