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

5 miles untimed outside in 10 degrees so I bundled up. Slept in until 8am and didn't get out until 11:30.  Day with the family playing Wii and watching a movie on the last day of Christmas vacation.

-9 degrees outside this morning...headed to the gym.  I ran 6.5 miles, 2.25 miles at easy pace, 4.25 miles at MP from 6:18-5:56 (last mile the fastest).  Good start to the first work week of the new year...now if it could only warm up outside!  (Launch)

No lunch run today due to work issues, plus it was -5 degrees outside (-15 with windchill)...I was not going out in that!

4 miles on the TM in 27:40 after work.  (Ride Red)

No run at lunch as it is freaking cold on the desert...-17 degrees when we got out there!

Got to the gym at 4:25 for my morning run and to meet Curt, and he was already nearly 3 miles into his run...talk about an early morning!  Good to run with Curt and chat for part of the run today, hopefully outside tomorrow morning, right Curt?

2 miles easy warmup then 6 miles at MP (6:22-5:49) and 1 mile cool down for a total of 9 miles in 58 minutes flat.  Good run except my left big toe is a bit sore, feels like a blister after discovering a hole in the bottom of my sock so the rubbing kinda starting hurting at the end of the run.  

Only run today due to taper and work conflicts.  Too bad, it is gorgeous outside at lunch time but just don't have the time during the break in my training course.

Kids are going to a friends house tonight for a sleep over so Kami and I have a date night!

Good outside run this morning with friends!  Ran with Lynette, Curt, Deborah and Gary and had some good conversation.  Also ran into Alana and her gal friends and 2 other solo runners...12 runners out on Sunnyside this morning!!   Mostly easier pace, but I did throw in some longer intervals (0.5, 1.0, 1.0) at mid to slower MP (6:10-6:25ish) to get the legs used to some faster pace.  Weather was good, about 20 degrees and no wind but it sure felt colder on the way back.

Day with the family focusing on reclaiming our house from the Christmas season decorations!
