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

6 miles along Davis Blvd on a very nice morning...75 degrees, sunshine and light breeze.  Hips are still sore and achy, really making me think about UVM. 

We had a great time at Lagoon, now for a visit to the UMNH at the Rio Tinto Center then the trek home.

Put up the kids trampoline when we got home, not too bad to get together.

5 easy untimed miles early before heading to the airport.  No hip discomfort. (Ride)

Got to the hotel and went for a run in the warm and humid weather.  Ran through a nice neighborhood, then found a park with some pathways in it on the way back. Maybe in the morning.  6.3 miles in 42 minutes on nice sized rollers for a 6:40 average pace.  (Fastwitch)

No run today.  I woke up at 4am to go run and it was pouring rain outside so I went back to sleep.  We had early meetings so I couldn't get out later when it was nice, then had the long flight back home.  Once home, the weather was crappy and had to get dinner and kids ready for evening activities.  Oh well, I don't need the mileage or a crappy run during the taper and the rest is probably good for my hips.

4:30am...5 easy untimed miles with Moxie in the cold and wind.  Unmotivated, hip/groin aching, not sure about UVM.  Just not feeling into running right now. 

3 miles running with the distance kids at track practice.  We ran a 2 mile loop, helping keep track of the kids ran a mix of slow and fast to catch the kids in front.  Then we ran 100 on, 100 off for 2 laps, an easy 200 then a fast 600.  Getting the kids ready for the 1500m race tomorrow.  Fun working with the kids, though some thought they were pretty hot stuff.

Right hip/groin still talking pretty loudly to me right now.  As of now, I am likely not running UVM this weekend.  I will make my final decision in the morning and change only if it is A LOT better...doubtful.  Bummed, but don't want to push the distance and hill with this at the expense of the rest of the summer season.  There will always be another race.  I have to practice what I preach!

I slept in today to rest the hip and see how it felt.  OK when I woke up, but now after a few hours it is a bit achy, so I am pulling out of UVM and will consider just resting the hip for a bit.  Targeting running the To Bone and Back 40 miler as a 2-person team with Gray on June 23.  Maybe I will look for a good race in July (besides a 5k and half marathon currrently on my radar)...Des News maybe?

I tried to take Moxie out for a morning jog (mental stress relief for stir craziness) and only made it to the corner before I knew it was time to stop.  My hip/groin just started to hurt so I just stopped and walked home.  Trying to remain positive and confident in my decision (I know it was the right one) to drop from UVM and practice what I preach to others, but it is frustrating.  I have only had about 4 injuries over the years that have made me stop running for a period (runner's knee, ITB, angry tendon in my foot, now this) so I am lucky.  

This will pass and get better, just need to listen and take the opportunity to rest up a bit.

I slept in a bit and went out around 6:30am in warmish (46 degrees) and slightly windy conditions.  Met up with the ladies (Andrea, Lynette, Deborah) for a nice easy paced run.  I was undecided how long I would go and just listen to what my body was telling me.  Ended up with really easy pace run in 1:10.  Felt the hip during the run but not bad.  I definitely could not have run 26 miles at sub-6:00 pace.
