Hi everyone, this is Jordynn, and this week’s workouts went well. Some challenges and a lot of learning.
Also, no competitions!
Started my week with 6-mile long run (45 minutes) and strength training. I felt pretty good during my run. Continued to focus on staying tall, relaxed & easy breathing.
Strength training was fun and challenging! Mainly working lower body, core, shoulders and back. Also did some agility work and box jumps.
This was my first workout doing repeat 400s of the year, so I was a little nervous on how I would do? I had 4x 400s and needed to hit 1:15 each one. My little brother started about 75 meters ahead of me and I would chase him down! I ended up running 1:11-1:12 each one! I was so excited about my times and how hard I worked to do it. I finished the workout with a 1200m run and that was tough. I was hoping for 43 seconds every 200m but was more like 45-46 second splits.

This was my recovery run day, with a long warm up that focused on running form.
My warm-up was tough because I did most of it with my WearBands to make it harder. This warm-up took about 35 minutes to finish. I was pretty tired by the time I got to my run. I thought the run would be tough but I felt pretty good.
Speed day! I was able to practice with the Eagles Elite Track Club. This was great because I was able to run next to some great athletes and get pushed on my runs. Started with a fast pace 600m. I was the only one to run the 600m, while others ran 400m and 500m. I felt great the first 200m, but I also think I went out too fast. I went kind of flat the last 400m. I know to control my excitement and run more balanced for the next time. Finished up with 4x 150s. I felt I was starting off strong for the first 50m. I feel I could’ve stayed stronger to end each run. With running this with other sprinters, it showed me what I need to work on and how fast others are that I’ll be competing against.
My 2nd day of strength training was more full body focused. I feel like I trained every muscle! I didn’t do any weights during this session. We did all body weight, bands and used the TRX.
Finished the week with a trip to the chiropractor. I got adjusted, did some muscle stimulation and heat treatment. There has been some nice improvement with my hips and pelvis. I finished up with leg compression therapy. I always feel so refreshed after my visits!

I would’ve hoped for a stronger week of training. But I did learn a lot about myself and I picked up some things from others.
My dad always tells me to trust my process, not others and it’s a long road ahead.
