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

I took the day off today.  Church then family time spent playing board games, watching movies and looking at family pictures.  A really good rest day.

11 miles at the gym in 67 minutes (6:05 average).  I ran next to Marlin and chatted for most of the run.  I ran a progression run starting with a couple of easy miles, then started at slow MP up to MP for a few mile, then about 5:35 pace for miles 8 and 9, then mile 10 was an average 4:50 (progressed from 4:57 to 4:17).  Easier last mile with the last quarter at 4:17.  A really good run on my holiday day off. 

Went back to the gym with Kami after dropping off the kids at school for another run.  6 miles total in 36:15.  Easy first mile then into progression during each subsequent mile:  0.25M at 5:30, 0.5M at 5:18, 0.75M at 5:00, 0.5M at 4:17.  Hit 5 mile mark at 29:30.  Ended with a really easy mile.  I am tired and hungry now.  (Kinvara)

An early and easy 10K at the gym in 41:55.  Legs are sore from yesterday's workout.  (Fastwitch)

6 miles in 44:15, out and back on Common Road from the hotel and a cool and overcast afternoon.  Good to get outside after a day of traveling. (Ride)

4:30am...5.25 miles in 35 minutes on the hotel TM.  Cold and dark outside and my legs are still a bit sore.  Early and short due to early meetings today.  12 hours of meetings today, no second run, too tired and hungry (and thirsty!).

I decided to sleep in and go for a run after our meetings today.   I got out after getting to our hotel and ran 10 miles in 1:08:20 down Wick Road on  a nice afternoon.  Heading home in the morning. (Ride)

I had an early flight so I had too hard a time gettting up for a run before flying home.  I may try to get one in this afternoon.

6am with the group for an outside run.  I ran 11 miles with David having some great conversation.  I was having some lower leg issues and couldn't run as fast as I wanted so we just took it easy.  Met up with the rest of the group at the corner and ran a bit with them.  Overall 13.25 miles in 1:36 (easy 7:16 average).

I went back out with Justin and Moxie a bit later for 3 fun easy miles together.  A good day of running despite having a chronic headache since Wednesday. 

A day with the family and doing a few chores around the house is now on tap.
