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

10K before church in 45:45 with Moxie.  It was supposed to be about 30 degrees...it was 15 instead...where is spring?  Church, lunch with the family and Super Bowl Party at Andrea's on tap for the day.

Went outside with Moxie because it was warm out this morning (29 degrees)...I didn't realize it was because we were having an ice storm!  Slick, slick, slick!  By the time we got home, we were literally covered in ice from the freezing rain...my gloves and jackets were stiff from the ice.  Good to be outside...but this was an interesting run.  Moxie was an ice dog when we got home...but she loved the run!  (Ride Black)

5 miles later in the day after work at 7:30 pace.  Stomach was not agreeing with me so this was not the most fun of runs.  (Ride Red)

Cold outside so to the gym for a TM run.  Speedwork day...3x2M at fast MP or better.  1 mile warmup then intervals with 0.5M recovery in between.  1-5:55 pace, 2-5:45 pace, 3-5:35 pace with last 0.1M at 4:41 pace.  1 mile recovery then 1 mile at MP to finish the 10 miles in 60:50 for a 6:05 average pace. 

Good run but now my lower back is quite stiff...good thing this is the only run for the day due to work commitments.

Very tired this morning...I got sucked into a movie last night and didn't get to sleep until late so ended up with only about 4.5 hours.  Still got to the gym by 4:30 for my run.  1 mile warmup, 6.2 miles at a MP progression (6:22 to 5:27), 0.8 mile recovery then 1 mile at MP to finish up the run in 57 minutes. 

I got my invitation yesterday for the 2011 Saucony Hurricane team.  Now I just need to make sure that Saucony and PowerBar will allow me to have both sponsorship...should work since they are not competitors.

TM at gym.  1 mile warmup, 9 mile tempo starting at mid MP and progressing to hard tempo pace (6:18-5:21).  Total time of 60:35 for an overall 6:03 average pace.

Screwed up yesterday...got busy at work and didn't get on the computer until I got home after work to help Kami register for the Little Red Riding Hood Century Ride in June and by the time I got on the 1000 spots had filled.  So, I had to register her for the 80 miler and hope that she can switch distances at the pickup or just ride the longer route (based on last year's experience, I don't see how they could stop her as it wasn't a closed course and the roads were open to commerce and traffic...if I wanted to ride on the road I could so how could they stop someone just for having a colored tag on her bike?  Plus, she paid her entrance fee and it is the same cost).  Still, I am screwed up and am sorry...but still in the doghouse.

No lunch run today...busy with work and it was still below 10 degrees at lunch time anyway!

Cold again this morning so off to the gym for a treadmill run.  2.5 miles warmup, 7.5 miles at MP between 6:15 - 5:46 (progression).  1.5 mile cooldown for 11.5 miles in 1:13:15 (6:22 average pace).  Day off today to spend with Kami!

Cold morning outside today.  Went out for 2.5 miles with Moxie then dropped her off, changed out of the old pair of Tornado's then met Andrea, McKay and Lynette for a long run.  15.5 miles with the crew through SRL and back and forth on the numbers streets to mitigate the wind.  Very tired at the end.  Not sure of pace as my GPS and I were not working well together today but it was pretty slow...hard to go fast when I can't feel my body!  Now I am VERY hungry...time to eat and then take a nap!
