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

6am...8 easy miles with Curt on a chilly morning (20 degrees and a breeze).  Nice to have the company and conversation on a cold dark morning.  Overall time of 1:02.  (Cortana Black)

4:30am...it was 5 degrees outside so back to the gym this morning.  Right when I was about to start Curt showed up so I had some good company again this morning!  2 miles easy, 4 miles MP progression then 1 mile at sub 5:30 pace.  Overall 7 miles in 43:30 for a 6:13 average pace.  My right foot is still a bit sore from rolling it on Saturday.  I will try to get a run in at lunch today time permitting.  (Old Cortana)

5 miles with Dan around the greenbelt at lunch.  Cool but sunny day, actually a pretty nice untimed run.  (Ride)

I dropped off my wife's car this morning at the repair shop to have the rear bumper replaced from when we were rear ended a few weeks ago and got a new surpise...in the last few days someone had tagged her car on the rear quarter in a parking lot (which we didn't know about) and not left a note.  Unfortunately, this has to be repaired too to make the bumper fix work right, so we are out $400 to fix this issue!  Nice ethical people out there in the world!

4:30am...7 easy utimed miles with Moxie on a warmer but breezy morning that still kept it a bit chilly.  Ran out and back on Sunnyside, ankle still a bit sore.  (Old Cortana)

5 cold and windy miles at lunch around the greenbelt in 37:29.  I never warmed up during this run, brrr.  (Ride)

4:30am...7 miles in 42:50 (6:07).  1 mile wu, 5 MP progression up to 5:46 pace.  1 mile at sub 5:30 to finish it off.  I had to do this with no music as I seem to have lost my IPod since Tuesday, either at home or left it at the gym accidentally and no one turned it in to lost and found, bummer.  I hope I find it at home someplace, otherwise this has been a bad week for lost or damaged items for us. (Cortana Black)

Nice lunchtime run around the greenbelt and an extra loop through the park a bit faster.  A cool day but nice, good day for a run.  6 miles in 43:20 (7:13 average).  (Ride)

I slept in since it is my day off and went to the gym with my wife at 5:30am.  I saw Curt (briefly) and ran next to Rex for a few miles.

2 miles easy, 1 mile easy MP, then into a 4x1 mile with 0.5M recovery at slow MP.  Splits were: 5:27, 5:24, 5:15, 5:10.  At the end I did a hard 0.5M, half at 4:17 pace until the TM started to overheat then backed it down to 5:00 pace.  Finished off with a slow MP cooldown.  Overall 10 miles in 59:00 (5:54 average).  Heading back to the gym after dropping the kids off at school for spinning class with Kami.  (Cortana Black)

27 km on the spinning bike in 1 hour, count as 5 easy miles.

3 easy miles outside with Moxie in the beautiful weather...in shorts! (Old Cortana)

A nice warmer morning for a long run (26 degrees).  I ran a solo mile to find Curt then we met Craig, Lynette and Sarah at the corner for a run though SRL to Broadway and back (just over 7 miles).  Craig and I peeled off down Sunnyside to keep going longer and kept up a decent clip (7:00 pace).  I was really starting to feel yesterday's workout and turned around at 16 miles and ran the last 2 miles solo.  Overall 18 miles in 2:14 even for my longest since the marathon in October.  Good to get a longer one in after a long layoff. 

When I got home, Moxie was really itching to go for a run, so I had something to eat, took a pit stop and got my daughter something to eat then went back out for an easy utimed 3 miles with the dog on an ever improving beautiful morning!  (Mirage)

My wife is a stud athlete!  In the past 6 days, she has gone to 18 1 hour long spinning classes at the gym, logging over 300 miles!  She amazes me with her strength and dedication to cycling!
