Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de stress.

No racing, retired.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

Support my wife's endeavor to do long distance road biking and her renewed interest in running! Keep biking more with her as cross training maybe do a Century ride.

 

Personal:

Born in 1968.  I live in Idaho Falls, ID.  I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired.

Married for 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

Slept in and skipped a morning run  (too cold too!).  After church family went to the gym and I lifted (focused on heavier leg rehab stuff).  I went out after we got home to just enjoy the nice weather.

Hammy/glute really sore later tonight.

7.25 miles at lunch. Easy mile wu, then 5 miles at 7:30.  1.25 mile cooldown.  Form is coming back, piriformis and hammy a bit sore but felt the best I have in my form in months.  (Ride 3 2013)

Cold, snowy, windy...just nasty out.  Plus head cold won't let go, so I stretched and did rehab exercises this morning.  Too cold and windy outside and my head feels like it is going to explode. taking the whole day off.

Woke up early but decided to wait a bit to have the temps warm up and run in shorts.  I took Justin to track practice so he could run with the boys (not interested in me running with them) so I ran 10.5 miles solo through the neighborhoods around the HS and out to Hitt Road and back...just meandering.  One pit stop and just easy recovery pace.  I need to start pushing pace soon...tired of seeing the slow pace on my watch.  Great morning for a run.  (Mirage 3)

5am...5 slow easy miles with Moxie along Sunnyside on a nice morning.  (Ride 3 2015)

Beautiful day at lunch for a run.  1 mile easy, then started to pick up the pace.  As I was approaching the bridge on the greenbelt, I saw a couple of runners to use as rabbits to get into a workout...2x2 miles.  First interval was pretty good and felt easy (6:50, 6:30).  1 mile recovery at 7:40 pace then second interval (6:31, 6:29) and felt controlled.  Form held mostly good and the power into the ground was good, breathing was contolled.  0.5 mile cooldown and some hip flexibility drills.  6 miles in 42 miles.  Good first workout in a while so I think I can selectively start addition workouts back into my schedule now.  (Mirage Red)

Too tired and got into a good discussion on faith with Kami this morning.  Will run later today (when it is really warm out!).

Came home to help watch my daughter who was sick and ended up at the hospital with my wife in the ER because she was having trouble breathing and had chest pains.  After a few hours and tests she was released...but it was scary.   Kinda hit close to home as two of my coworkers have passed away in the past 5 days.

11 miles in the late afternoon while girls rested and my folks checked in on them.  Just meandered through town in shorts and no shirt in the 60 degree weather! (Mirage Red)

9.640.003.110.0012.75

Got up late and went out for a run.  I bumped into Lynette and ran some miles with her to the gym.  On the way back, ran by the park and the Community Fitness run was taking place.  The RD (a friend of mine) asked me to run and I thought why not give it a try.  Most of my other runner friends were running the 10K and I was only up for the 5k to test my hamstring issue.  I ran up front with Gray and Alan for the race and ended up winning the 5k in 17:56 and felt comfortable and not pushing my injury, but I don't think I could have run much faster on this pancake flat course based on my current fitness/racing.

Good run, now for Spring break!  (Ride 3 2015)

Slept in and went out a little later after sunrise.  6 miles solo in just under 45 minutes, mostly easy but a few pushing up the pace.

Went back out with my family from the park.  I ran 0.5M with Kami and Katelyn then Justin and I took off down the trail after a rabbit.  We ran some fast segments (5:30 or under for some long stretches)!  Ran back into Katelyn and Kami and ran about 1 mile easy with them before charging  back up the hill at sub 8:00 pace.  6 miles in just under 45 minutes!  Good run (again).  (Launch)

Now for pool time with family and friends (Hudman's!).
