This week was a little more exciting then the other because I got to be around the one sport I love more then any other, track! I have ran track/ cross country since I was in the sixth grade. I’m not sure what it is that makes me love it so much, maybe because of all the injuries that come along with running or maybe the fact that it’s a one athlete sport; where you don’t have to have a team to participate. The track meet wasn’t until Saturday, so I had to make it through a whole week of school first. Brittany and I were able to go to PH on Tuesday when there wasn’t much going on. We were able to get a lot of masteries done that day though, but that’s all we got to do. It was a pretty slow week because of the build up for the track meet on Saturday.
This week was a pretty exciting week for my family (mostly my little brother). Nick, my little brother, made it to nationals for swimming, where he was swimming the 200 yard breaststroke and 100 yard breaststroke. I couldn’t have been more proud of him; he swam very well even if he was not the happiest with his swims. That was only short course nationals, now he still has long course, where I expect him to swim even better. Once I got back to school, I only had to make it other day before the big track meet. On Saturday, we arrived at 8:30, the meet did not begin until 9:30-10ish, they first started with the field events. They were planning to begin the running events at 12:30, however the meet was running very far behind. The running events did not start until 1:30 and were not very well organized. We walked on the where the athletes check in for their races and asked if they needed any help. I helped them organize and make it more efficient for the athletes to get their numbers faster. Once the running events finally started, the favorite event to watch was up first, the hurdles. The hurdles are my favorite because of all the people who fall on their faces. Nothing exciting happened until the second to last event of the day the boys 3200, a boy fell of the track while running and inverted his ankle. I was able to do an eval on the boy. He was not very happy with himself for falling off of the track and having to stop running, so he really did not want to talk to me much. Once I finally got him to take of his ankle compression wrap and sock I was able to tell he had a grade 1 ankle sprain, nothing serious. We told him to ice and take an easy… This week is going to be a little different because I have imaging!
This week I was able to get 20 masteries and about 70 attempts to add for my book.
