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

6:30am...4 easy untimed miles with Moxie on a cool morning.  Only a slight twinge in my right foot remains from the race last week.

Great artcile on running in the newest Runner's World from Amby Burfoot.

3 miles around community park with my family...a fun day in great weather. 

Hurt my back a bit jumping on the trampoline with my son...ouch!

4:30am...5 easy miles with Moxie on a very nice morning.  My back is still pretty sore but my foot is feeling better.  Probably only run for today.

No run this morning.  My back is still a bit sore, I was tired and it was raining outside...a perfect storm to convince me to sleep in a bit and let my body recover.

My back is feeling much better this morning. I decided to changes things up and I went to spinning class with my wife.   We did a high intensity speed workout and a good hill climb workout.  Around 15 miles in 50 minutes, or an equivalent of about 4 miles of running.  Good change, really felt it in my quads.  I will try to run at lunch today.

5 miles at lunch today in 35:22 (7:07, 7:03, 7:13, 6:58, 6:58).  Cold, windy but nice and sunny.  My calves were very tight either from the cold or a need to retire the Cortana's...probably a mixture of both.  (Cortan)

4:30am...5 easy untimed miles with Moxie.  My right foot was a bit tender again and it was really cold this morning...tights, gloves (hands still were frozen!), hat, etc.  Brrr, not ready for this temp yet.  (Ride)

5 crappy miles at lunch.  (Cortana)

I decided that I didn't want to be cold on my morning run again and I wanted to put in some faster efforts, so I headed to the gym this morning.

2 miles warmup, then to the work.  2 miles at 5:49, 1 mile recovery, 2 miles at 5:32, 1 mile recovery, 1 mile at 5:24, 1 mile cooldown with a progressive fast finish (last 0.2 mile at 4:17).  Overall 10 miles in 59:40 (5:58 average).

Now for a day off with my wife.

I slept in and went out around 6am for 3 miles with Moxie.  I dropped her off and met the group for a greenbelt run from Sunnyside through Freeman Park and back.  A big group (Gray, Craig, Curt, Lynette, Marlin, David) and great conversation with good friends.  Started off well but by around mile 6 I was starting to really feel it in my legs so the last few miles were hard and slow.  Great to run with my friends whom I haven't seen it a while.

Chores, meeting preparation and painting are on tap for today.
