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.

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

6:30am...beautiful morning for a run, cool and calm.  Practiced my form improvement again on this run (I need to get it so don't have to think so hard about it) and it felt good.  Nice easy effort and improved pace for the feel of run.  Started easy to warm up then hit relaxed splits in the 6:30ish range for most of the rest of the run.  It felt much better when I really relaxed and just extended the hips, I can tell I have been running with too short off a stride for a while now, this should be a good change once it is second nature.

Out early for a run before Kami went to work.  6M slow and easy...it took about 4 miles before I felt like I was running then the last 2 I picked it up and extended my hips a lot better.  (Defyance)

6.1M on a warm day at lunch.  1.5M easy then 4.6M at MP (6:20ish range) really focusing on opening my hips.  Effort felt as easy as the warmup, pace was about 25-45 seconds a mile faster.  Just need to get to the point where I don't have to focus as hard and it is natural then I will focus on my toe off in combination with this change.  (Ride 2010)

7 miles early this morning on a warm and humid morning.  Started very easy, ran about 1 mile with Andrea to start her tempo then 1 mile at slow MP to finish of the run in 54:10.  Hip extension is feeling good and easier.  (Defyance)

Have run into an issue with my fall race plans.  My wife and I miscommunicated about the dates for SGM and she has to work that time and the kids are out of school the next week!  So, I either have to likely go to St. George solo (anyone need a ride?) or possibly run a different marathon this fall as my goal race (TOU?). 

Wow, RunningTimes is timely with information right now for me with another good form article:  http://runningtimes.com/Print.aspx?articleID=20271

Nice solid moderate effort run at lunch on a hot calm day on the desert.  Once again this is a form focused run which felt really good again without feeling too tired.  4 miles in 25:37 (easy 6:24 pace).  (Ride 2010)

8.4M in 1:04:30 with Curt this morning.  1 mile warmup then the rest of the run in 7:00-7:30 range.  Lower back a bit stiff, but the pace felt much slower and the hip extension was good without thinking about it as much.  Good progress on the form change.  Likely my only run today due to work and a birthday party later today.  (Defyance)

8M early on a nice morning in 1:02:20.  Started a bit slow but picked up a little as I woke up.  The form change is coming along well as I could feel the power in the hip extension this morning (although I still had to think about it otherwise I started shuffling more...could be the 4:30am time of day as well!).  (Defyance)

6.4M in 42:35 (6:39 pace) on a hot and humid day at lunch.  I started out thinking I might try some speedwork but my warmup demonstrated that this was not the day for that.  So, I focused more on a form run (power in the stride, knee drive forward) and maintained a solid 6:35 pace for the last 5.4 miles in easy effort.  Good form run again.  Got whistled at twice by cars of women during the run...not bad for an old guy!  (Ride 2010)

7 very slow miles on a warm and muggy morning.  My lower back was really stiff today when I woke up but started to feel better about mile 6!  Try for a better run at lunch today dodging storms from the looks of it.  (Defyance)

6.75 miles at lunch on perfect day, it actually felt cooler than this morning.  1 mile warmup then 4+ miles at slow MP, 1 mile cooldown and 6 0.05M barefoot strides in the park.  A good run.  (Ride 2010)

Off for a weekend of camping at Massacre Rocks State Park for my son's birthday.

Camping at Massacre Rocks so I went for a run from the campground to the Oregon Trail Ruts about 2.5 miles away then some single track on the trail itself.  Ran up to the rest stop (to use the facilities) then back to the ruts and the campground for a total of 8.4M in just over an hour.  Then we did some good hiking on the trails and we all road bikes back to the trail.  So I am going to count a total of 10 miles for the day.

Drove to Register Rock, went to American Falls for ice cream and had a great dinner and time around the campfire!   A great day of camping.

10 miles in 1:17 in the most humid conditions I have EVER run in!  It was 80 degrees at 4:45am and the humidity was 100%...I couldn't even sweat the moisture in the air was condensing on me so much that I literally had small rivers of water running down my body.  My shorts were so we that it was like I just got out of the pool!  Even the locals here are saying this is the worst humidity they have seen this summer, it is just oppressive.

Another day of meetings then maybe another run tonight.  Got to our hotel and had some time before dinner/drinks so I went back out for another hot/humid run.  6.5M onto the airport trail and back in 47 minutes...my running clothes are so wet and stinky I might just leave them instead of subject my fellow travelers to the smell!  Heading home early tomorrow morning so no early run tomorrow.

My legs were still a little fatigued from yesterday's hill workout so it was an easy run at lunch on a beautiful day.  6.1 miles in 43:50 with the last 2 miles being the fastest and with a focused effort on the form improvement.  Nice and easy and barely breaking a sweat on this fine day.   Legs were tight but loosened up near the end for a good run.

7 easy miles on a nice morning, good temps and no wind.  Nice and easy as my quads are still a bit fatigued but I was able to pick it up for the last 2 miles.  Busy day today so only a short run at lunch, if possible.  (Defyance)

A quick 4 miles at lunch in between meetings.  Started off good (6:02) but by the last mile my stomach was not feeling too good and the fatigued was back, so I slowed down to finish in 25:10 (6:17 average) which wasn't too bad.  Still want to get a good hard tempo at a sub-6:00 in soon.  (Ride 2010)

Got up early to get my run in.  Out the door at 4:45am and ran 5 miles before hooking up with Mckay, Lynette and Andrea.  Ran 1 mile with them and we were going way to slow so I picked it up then turned around to get back in time to help Kami get ready and over to the start of her Century ride today.   A total of 13.1 miles in 1:38.  

After returning from dropping off Kami, I ran another 4.15 miles in 28:49 to finish off the running for today.  Nice day for a run, 60 degrees with a breeze (which is picking up and going to make it tough on all the riders!).

8.5 miles in 59:30 after Kami's parents left to return home.  It was very smoky outside creating not so great running conditions.   We didn't get home from the drive in movies until 1:30am last night so I was also a bit tired.

Kami did great yesterday on her 100 mile ride, finishing it in 5:44 for a 17.3mph average including into a 30mph headwind for about 40 miles of the ride.  She rocked (and is much more tired than I!).

3.1 easy miles on a beautiful day at lunch, more as a stress reliever than training.  Gave thanks for the blessing in my life and just pondered more about life after talking more with Kory today.  He is doing well, still in ICU and HUNGRY!!!.  He is an inspiration and I will be using him as my motivation for Mesa Falls this weekend.  (Ride Black)

I won the Mesa Falls marathon this morning in a time of 2:48:55.  I was running this as a training run to finish up an 80 mile week so I ran it a bit easier than full out marathon pace.  I also dedicated this race to my good buddy, Kory, in hopes that he recovers swiftly.  The announcer at the finish line told the crowd about this and what happened to Kory and the gave a nice round of applause (it brought me to tears).   Thank you, Lord, for the strength to push through the pain and struggle of a marathon once again!

Overall a good run, half on dirt/fireroads, half on roads.  More challenging than the profile shows (plus at the 6200 foot altitude!).   We had to run over several cattle guards in the first half and I had to slow down at most of the aid stations to grab a drink as they were staffed with only 1 or 2 volunteers (but they were out there in the middle of nowhere, thanks!).  Started off with some PowerBar Gel Blasts to get the fueling started.  I had to carry all my own PowerBar gels and used 3 of them during the run (they are great and really helped).  I went out easy and just cruised through the halfway point then I picked it up on the downhill before the 3 mile uphill at mile 17 (a tough one!).  Then I just rolled through the last 6 miles with the last 3 miles being slower than I wanted but it was a training run and no one was in sight so I eased it in to the finish.  Happy with the effort and the win.  Splits:  6:16, 6:25, 6:12, 6:14, 6:16, 6:20, 6:28, 6:35, 6:27, 6:32, 6:10, 6:21, 5:57, 5:50, 6:09, 6:11, 6:21, 6:49, 7:21, 7:05, 6:11, 6:24, 6:18, 6:35, 6:44, 6:34, 2:12 (I had 0.34M on GPS).

We had to get on the road before 4am to get to the school to get packets and take the buses to the finish for the 6:30am start...now I am ready for a nap! 

Unfortunately my training partner Lynette who rode with me to the race had to DNF at 22 miles as she developed a stress fracture in her foot!  Bummer as she was the lead woman at the time!

Taking a look back at my now 20 marathons in the past 5 years, I can say that God has blessed me in so many ways with my running:  accomplishing goals and having a sense of focus/purpose, making great friends in the community and on the FRB, demonstrating fitness to friends and family and providing motivation to others, etc.  Through His strength, I have been able to win 20% of the marathons I have run!  Not too bad for an older runner with faith!

Very busy day at work today so no time to run at lunch.  5.1 miles around the loop at Community Park while my son had soccer practice after work on a pleasant evening.  No issues with my knee!  (Ride Black)
