Hey im erinn. and i dont use correct capitalization or punctuation or spelling as you will soon be able to tell. i went to nashoba regional highschool and now i go to Umass amherst. i am currently undeclared. and i do TRACK! ok well now that thats overwith i will give you a brief overview of my college experience thus far. as far as academics go i am doing pretty well at this point. i have a TON of reading to do because i am in more classes than they (who they are i dont know) suggest. but it is all manageable if i stay on top of it and dont get behind. my first exam is tomorrow in my nutrition class (i am taking a break from studying to write this!!) so i hope that that goes well. so far track is awesome. i dont really know how i would have gotten used to school without it. it instantly groups you with people that you will inevitably become friends with and provides you with a sort of community. and we get really cool stuff. (ex. new shoes, clothes, a nutritionist, trainer, academic councilors, free tutors, weight coach, the list gets longer by the day) on the other hand there are a few unexpected drawbacks (shortened winter vacation) the workouts pretty much go as follows: monday: some type of interesting run workout like hills or resistance running. tuesday: core workout, hurdle drills, jump rope, sprints in the grass with no shoes. wednesday: some type of sprint workout with a 20 min cooldown run. thursday: plyometrics. friday: repeat 350m or 400m sometimes in relay form. also i go to the gym monday wednesday friday. monday is legs (squats, step ups and more fun stuff) wednesday is arms, and friday is a mix. things that i have learned about track: you will never be as sore as you are the first week, eat more than an hour before you run, running barefoot is fun, get sleep!!! i have only vaulted 2 times since i have been here but they were both enjoyable experiences. mostly just progressing from 1-3 steps. this week we are officially in pre season and can start vaulting more! ok well i am pretty sure i should keep studying so bye! i will be more indepth later!!
