Reflections of how you felt during and after the run. Did you feel good, sick. Any injuries? Proud?
On my 1st run, I was really slow since it have been a year past since I last ran at Negishi. During the run, I was in a good mood since there were nature surrounding me, which made me relaxed. However, I hurt my left flank a lot in the first run on 2011, which usually happens to me. Although, I broke my PB (Personal Best). On the 2nd run, I beat my PB again with 11.26, and I was in a better mood than the last run. One reason was that I changed my shoe into a shoe which is produced from a sports brand, which has a cushion on the heel to absorb the impact from the hard asphalt, and also can change the impact to power to go forward. On my 3rd run, I was in a bad mood even I broke my PB again with 11.11. The reason was that during my run, my left flank started to hurt after I passed the 1st lap, and after I finished running, I became Hyperpnea since I ran my best and sprint the last 100m. On my 4th run, I was also in a bad mood because I finished 19 seconds slower than my PB. I think it was because I was tired from the last day, and was hurt in some parts such as my thigh. Besides, I started slow first, so I became slower. But after I finished running, I felt great, like releasing stresses from my body.
Your two goals- Outcome goal- What you wanted to achieve after your first run and your Process goal- how you will get to your outcome. Did you need to reassess them?
Outcome Goal (now): To finish at 11.08 (finishing three seconds faster than my PB.)
Process Goal: Looking back maximum once.
I had to reassess my outcome goal twice because my first one (reaching 11.30) was already achieved on my 2nd run, and my second one (reaching 11.15) was also achieved on my 3rd run.
Discuss the strategies you used to help you improve your times and meet your goals, for example did you use any psychological techniques such as self talk?Music? Breathing techniques, better shoes. Did you do more practise on your own?
Although I didn’t do any practice on my own, I achieved my goal twice and improved my time a lot. I think because I ran with better shoes, one of the psychological techniques above. On my 1st run, I used shoes that are mostly for short distances so I finished slower than I thought. But from my 2nd run, I used shoes that are created from on of the famous sports brand, which included cushions in it, so it made me faster.
A visual representation of your times and progress for example a line graph.
At the end of the unit you need to provide a score out of 8 of how you felt your performance was in the unit.
I think my score would be 7 out of 8. I think it is because I accomplished my Outcome Goal twice , and also ran as best as I can on my 3rd run, which become my new PB with 11.11. Besides, in the X Country day, I endured my right knee pain, persevered, and achieved a new PB of 10.41! I also achieved my Process Goal, which I accomplished in the X Country Day.
Overall, I improved myself a lot, for instance, enduring the pain and running without stopping. And today, I became 10th in the total of the Gr. 7 & 8 boys, and became 4th in my grade!
Here are some videos of me running in X Country on November 10th (I am the person who is short running with a red T-shirt):
