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

I went to the gym with Justin to run this morning (1 degree outside) and EVERY SINGLE TM was being used...mostly by walkers.  So, we lifted weights instead.  I will try for a run later today.

5 miles during a late lunch run around the greenbelt.  Sunny but cold, untimed.  (Mirage)

4:30am...6 easy untimed miles with Moxie on a slick path covered with a thin sheen of fresh snow.  (Ride)

5 miles on a very slick (snow and ice) pathway around the greenbelt.  My legs are sore from having to activate my stabilizers so much during this run.  (Mirage)

No early run today.  I tried to get up but didn't feel very good.  Very stiff neck and tender shoulder and just tired.  I will try to get in a snowy run at lunch and hit the gym after work with Justin for a hard mile repeat workout for him.

5.25 miles doing loops around Freeman Park on a snowy and icy pathway in a cold wind.  Just got this one done and glad of it. (Xodus)

Hit the gym after dinner with Justin for some speedwork.  1 mile easy, 1 mile at 5:10, 0.5M at 4:52, 0.25M at 4:17.  A total of 5 miles in 29:50. (Tangent)   Left hip was a bit sore but marshalled through.  Justin got down to 4:52 pace during his speedwork!

Slept in and went to the gym with Justin and Kami.  Justin and I just ran fairly easy, with some..."faster running" thrown in (I can't say "speed" anymore unless it is less than 10 seconds).   8.5 miles in 52:10 (6:08 avg).  No niggle in my hip (yes, niggle is the proper term as a "small annoyance or concern").  Justin did great and ran a 10K, proud of his dedication and commitment.  (Boost)

FRB PC report to meet terminology police standards:  16.75 miles outside, slow.

My report using MY words:

I went outside on a warm morning for a slow long run.  7 miles along Sunnyside with Moxie then I dropped her off and went back out solo through SRL to Broadway and back.  I ran into the store running group on the way back and caught everyone, even had a few guys try to catch and push me for a bit.  I picked it up to 5:30 pace for about 1 mile to drop them, felt good to run faster this late in the run.  Had some hip pain throughout the run that was slowing me quite a bit in the last mile or so. Lots of runners out today, including Alana and Curt who I saw I as I was finishing up.  (Mirage)
