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

I went out in the afternoon after it had warmed up a bit with David and Gray.  I should have known after yesterday's workout (I was planning a recovery day today) not to go out with two young guys, one an OTQ guy in the marathon and 10,000m and the other shooting for a 2:28 spring marathon.  I ran an easy mile, met Dave, ran 3.5 miles to meet Gray then 3 miles back with both before peeling off for home and running really easy.  8 miles in 55 minutes but an honest effort (6:10-6:30ish) for the 6.5 miles with the guys.  Now I am ready to eat and rest...after taking the kids swimming that is.  (Ride)

4:30am...7 slow easy recovery miles, the run I should have done yesterday.  Total time of 46:30 on the TM at the gym.  (ride)

Too cold and tired for a run at lunch today, maybe after work...or not.

No run this morning as I was feeling a bit under the weather and had a niggle that made me pause so I took the morning off.

I slept in today on my day off then got outside to shovel the driveway (snow and ice) for about 1 hour before taking the kids to school.  Then my wife and I headed to the gym.

11 miles in 1:07:40 (6:09 avg).  1 mile easy, then progression every mile starting at 6:22 and ending a bit faster with a 5:46 mile.  Overall felt really steady and easy.  (Mirage)

15 miles in 1:34 on the TM.  4 miles easy, 10 miles at easy to mid MP, a couple of fast sections and a light cooldown.  Ran with Curt, Lynette, Andrea and Spencer.  We saw Marlin, Deborah, Kami and McKay there as well...a busy day for our group at the gym (-11 degrees outside).  (Mirage)
