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 slept in today.  Had a fun breakfast with the family, went to church and came home to spend some fun time with the kids.  It was pouring rain outside and not to enticing to run.  But in the early afternoon had a break and went out with Moxie for an easy 5 miles in 37 minutes in cool, windy and slightly rainy weather.  Now for more family fun time.

10 miles on a cool, cloudy day in 1:12:09.  Decided to take Moxie and joined the group for about 5 miles of the run.  Ran Sunnyside, SRL and down to the greenbelt and back.  Ran comfortably with Moxie doing great at a low 7:00 pace...this was her longest run ever!  Now to enjoy and extra day off with the family!

6 very easy miles with Moxie on a cold (36 degrees) but good morning for a run.  Starting the cut back and will likely go to one run a day starting Thursday.  (TSD5)

10K in 39:54 on a beautiful day at lunch.  Started easy, then started to get up to a good pace and ran 4 miles at 6:05-6:15 pace.   Felt very easy and controlled except at the end where I think my lack of fuel for the morning was catching up with me.  (Tangent 1)

Yesterday it was 36 degrees at 4:15am when I started my run, today in was 59 degrees...what a change.  Tired from a long day yesterday (both at work and after work between soccer practice and a church meeting).  Got out the door right on time and ran 7.2 miles with Moxie in 59 minutes (slow and easy).  I ran 4 miles with Curt and had some good conversation...nice to have such great company so early in the morning.  (TSD5)

5 miles in 32 minutes at lunchtime on a warm and breezy day.  I wanted to go longer but work beckoned.  It was actually HOT out today with bright sunshine...time to work on my burn, I mean tan.  (Tangent 1)

It was VERY windy this morning and I didn't feel like battling it outside so I headed to the gym.  My legs were a little sore from the massage last night (worked them over pretty good, especially my left hammy where Peter found the knot that I feel all the time...suggested stretching and heat to help it loosen up). 

1 miles easy at around 7:00 pace, then into a 5 mile tempo run.  Splits:  5:43, 5:36, 5:34, 5:27, 5:24.  A 1/2 mile cooldown the the last 1/2 mile at MP.  Total time for the 7 miles was 41 minutes.  Felt good during the run and the tempo wasn't really that hard. 

Probably my only run today due to cut back and work schedule (and crappy weather).

A great run with Gray, Curt and Nate this morning on Sunnyside hill.  5 miles uphill into the wind in 41:36 (8:20ish pace) which was tough after yesterday's tempo run.  But coming back down was the real reason for the run to get some last downhill training in.  5 miles down in 27:38 (5:26, 5:11, 5:40, 5:26, 5:43) which felt very easy and controlled.  Good confidence booster run!  Fun to run with good company again!  10 miles in 1:09:14.

Kami and I are off to Logan today for her to ride the Century at Little Red Riding Hood.  Kids are staying home with Kami's folks who are visiting...an away date night!  I will hook up with Paul tomorrow for a run after getting Kami off to her ride. 

Also the last day of school for the kids!

Got Kami off for her ride then hooked up with Paul for a run on the River Trail.  10 miles in 1:18:40 including crossing several muddy bogs.  Loved the Mirage shoes!  Now to go track Kami and Jen down on the course. 

Thanks for the great company, Paul.

3 more miles in 20 minutes around Newton waiting for Kami to get to the lunch break.

Kami did great on her ride.  95 miles in 5 hours and 18 minutes.  She rode consistently strong and only had a dark time around 78 miles.  I am very proud of her.
