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 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

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

4:45am...I met Curt, Alana and Gama for an early morning run.  Ran 8 miles with Curt and had a good time just chatting and catching up.  (Ride 5 2015)

Went out for an easy run at lunch.  On the way back I was running on the "trail" next to the river and a root jumped up and caught my foot and I took a hard fall.  Nearly went over the ledge into the river and pulled/strained my glute/hammy that I have been trying to rehab...it has never hurt this bad!  Hobbled back to the building and now just need to see how bad it is.  4.25 miles.

Made it to the hotel late last night after picking up numbers and Justin and Isaac going to party with Claire.

5 miles solo up Cole Rd and back from the hotel.  (Ride 5)

Then a quick bite to eat before taking Katelyn to Eagle Island State park for her 3K race.  Katelyn, Lauren and I warmed up by running the course then she ran the race and did great. (Launch)

Back to the hotel to pick up the boys team and all the families to head back to the park for their Varsity race.  They did really good and more importantly told me they had fun!  (Launch)

Waited around to watch the Championship races and awards (Isaac won his section and took 3rd OA in the Varsity).  Back to the hotel for showers and pizza.  The boys took off for the BSU football game and Katelyn, Lauren and Luke went to the pool and hung out while us adults watched the game and had a fun night.  Been a long time since I was up past midnight!

Still pretty sore in my hammy/glute/groin.  Skipped an early run and went to lift with Jeremy.  Taking the day off.  Sore, unmotivated and cold and snowy outside.

Still not running.  Going to the PT today, think my SI joint is really out.  Hope to get relief from this pain, causing me to be nauseous.  Staying home from work it hurts so bad.

Another day off.  Hip feeling much better after PT and adjustment to SI joint.  Tendon insertion still sore, but I am not nauseous and can walk normal!

1.25 mile walk at lunch in cold and wintery (snow) weather around Freeman Park.  Felt good to walk, still sore to sit too long.

Stretched instead of early workout.  PT this morning then maybe a run later today.

Good PT appointment, lots of good recovery in alignment and strength.  Still need to do some stretching, rolling, weight stuff.

Easy 5 miles on a beautiful day.  Slow and some walking to not push too hard. (Launch 2)

Happy Thanksgiving!  We got about 8 inches of snow overnight and through the morning!  Shoveled the driveway with the family then went out for a run through the neighborhood in the quite, white and deep snow conditions.  Hammy and glute actually felt ok today.  (Xodus)

Now for the food with my family at my parents house.    Glute started to really hurt in the evening, burning sensation.

Skipped running today (-4 outside when I woke up!) and went to spinning class instead.   Glute felt ok but if I put too much resistance on I felt it in my hip.  So, fast flat road spin for 26 km. 

Now to start decorating for Christmas and we are making our own turkey today.
