But I'm not good at it. I'm number 13 on my HS XC team, and I'm pretty slow. I want to be in the top seven of my team so badly but I actually suck. I don't know what to do.
I love running so much, but I can't seem to get any better.
Some people were never meant to do it.
However, it is the small things that count. Drink water, eat healthy always (no not everything in moderation, what does McDonalds do for you?!?! JACK $#!T!!), run some extra miles before practice, get 9 hours of sleep, keep easy days easy, hard days as RELAXED as possible, while still running FAST. Massage your legs when possible, do some cross training (swimming is good), get a running partner, ask for advice on Reddit's r/running (but be prepared, some people are dumb. I would say here, but a lot of us are douchebags). If you want, we can exchange emails and we can talk about a few things. Anything else, ask!
Ok. SO running is my passion in life. I am dedicated to it with a determination that I hold for nothing else. It is an exciting and fun part of my life.
you can't just run 120 -10 minute miles
you have to do workouts while getting the milage up
