Peoria didn’t disappoint! 11 Personal season bests, 4 of which were lifetime PRs! Abby Petersen meet her goal of breaking 20 today, Ava Berg almost broke 24 minutes which is over a minute PR this season. Olivia Rogers had an incredibly strong race running almost the same 2 mile and 3 mile splits of 7:44 and 7:41… we’ve been working hard on her second mile and she definitely pushed herself to stay strong through it today. Charlotte Old and Elena Garcia ran in a nice duo and both ended up breaking into the 20s. Probably the most remarkable race was had by Aly Motherway who had a HUGE lifetime PR of 24:54!! We’re looking forward to a solid two weeks of hard training to prep us for the back half of our season 😄
Monday, September 13th
Today the team generally set out to do a tempo workout in our meet as we are coming off heavier mileage last week and a hard race Saturday. Despite missing 6 athletes due to injuries or a common cold, we still ran a nice workout race! Abby and Victoria took the lead with Abby being instructed to help pace Victoria- helping her to work on hitting her goal race times. Then Charlotte took on our second pack with yuliya helping to pace her and Kate attempting her first race back post a hamstring injury. Unfortunately and fortunately, she was smart and decided to pull out of the race early as it started irritating her early on. Though she did do some mental sabotage against Addison Trail before she dropped out! Olivia, Grace, and Annabella all did a great job of hitting just below their goal times for three miles. Zoe, Aly and Andy wrapped up with a short two miles- all of which were MUCH faster paced than set out, but they felt good so we have aspirations for some future fast three miles! Andy finished her first ever 2 mile race in under a 10 minute mile pace… beyond exciting for a first time runner! 😃
Monday, August 30th A great way to start off the 2021 season! In our tri-meet verse WB and Morton the Varsity team took 2nd place to Morton (31-25) and 1st place against Willowbrook (23-32). All athletes well outperformed their “paced” times set out for them prior to the race. Most notable performances were those who managed to be extremely consistent throughout the race today with the following 1 mile and 2 mile splits: Elena Garcia: 7:00, 7:06 Charlotte Old: 7:00, 7:06 and Victoria Cius: 7:35, 7:37
Despite missing two key Varsity athletes, the girls did a great job of finding their packs and running together to perform as well as they did.
On the JV level, we did not have enough athletes to score, but Sophomore Annabella Ramirez had an incredible first ever race with a time that was a minute per mile faster than her time trial!
We are so excited for this season, and are still welcoming new runners!
