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

10.1M on A1A in 1:14 early with the last 0.5M at slow MP.  Another beach day or back to KSC...ah, choices!  I want to do another 4M on the beach later today.

No beach run today as we spent most of the day at the KSC on the tour...great time, cool place!  Got back to the hotel and spent a little time on the beach until we started seeing lots of jellyfish, including some really big ones, washing up on the shore and it really freaked out the kids...so to the pool it was!

11.1M at just under 7:30 average pace early up and down A1A on another nice warm morning.  Last day in Melbourne, so we plan to enjoy some beach/pool time then some more time with Kevin and Jeana before our early flight home tomorrow.   I might try for the beach run today that I didn't get yesterday.

3.5M barefoot on the beach in wonderful temps and sunshine...I love Florida!!!

5M at lunch in 31:40 on  a beautiful day...sunny, nice temp and a slight breeze!  (Trigon)

Estimated 1 mile of running while referreeing my son's first soccer game of the season tonight (they won 3-0!).  Great job, boys.

7M is 54:50 early on a nice morning prior to Kami going to work.  Just easy as I am still kinda tired from the travel on Tuesday.  Planning an interval run at lunch today (1/2 miles) and a 20 miler on Saturday morning to finish off the week and try to get ready for Ogden.  (tornado)

What a gorgeous day at lunch...sunny, 60 degrees and a light wind, just awesome!  1.75M warmup to the river front road on the greenbelt then started my 6x0.5M intervals with 0.25M recovery.  1-2:35, 2-2:46, 3-2:43, 4-2:46, 5-2:49, 6-2:52.  Not really as fast as I wanted (except the first one) and I had a little right hip twing on the last two so I slowed a bit but at least I got some speedwork in my training.  Finished off with a 1.75M recovery back to the office for a total time of 50:53.  (Trigon)

Out the door at 4:20am for an easy recovery run.  Tired and a bit sore (hips, knees) for the first 3 miles then I finally felt like I was into the run.  6.2M at a very easy pace (too slow to write down).  Another easy run today before a long run tomorrow morning.  (Tornado)

6.3M in 46 minutes on another beautiful day at lunch...60 degrees, sunny and a light breeze.  Another recovery run in prep for tomorrow's long run (early before a church meeting...and on our 17th anniversary).  (Trigon)

Got up early and out the door at 5am for my 20 mile run.  It was 50 degrees and beautiful for a long run.  First 10 miles in 1:14:25 then stopped at home for a pit stop and PowerBar Gels and water.  Out for the remainder through Snake River Landing and around the greenbelt.  Finished the second 10.1 miles in 1:09 and change for an overall average of 7:12 which included the really easy first 5 mile warmup.  Felt great throughout, a little tightness in the left ITB at the end but no worries.

 Then back home for a shower and breakfast before a 3 hour meeting at church, then to the bike shop with Kami to fit her to her bike better, pick up the kid's from the museum and lunch.  Got back home to do some yardwork then off to a surprise birthday party for a friend after dropping the kids off at my parents for the night so Kami and I can go out for our 17th anniversary!  A busy but fun day!
