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

Moxie and I ran to my parent's house to feed their cat before church.  5.25 miles in 38 minutes in clear, sunny, calm 15 degree weather.  Good start to the day.

I wanted to do a speed workout today, so I headed to the gym at 4:30.  1M warmup, then a progression run starting at 6:15 and progressing up to 5:49 for 6 miles.  Mile 8 I ran at a 5:30 pace, then recovered for most of the next mile, but finished the last 0.25M of the run at 4:55 pace.  Overall 9 miles in 54:50 (6:05 average) for a good early morning (and today's only) run.

6 easy untimed miles with Moxie early on a nice morning for a run.  Very tired after a long and late meeting at church last night.  Only run for the day due to work and other commitments.

Cold morning today (1 degrees).  Since it is my day off, slept in and went to the gym later with my wife.  She did spinning, I ran a MP run.  1M easy wu, 10 miles MP run for 11 miles in 1:08:40 (6:13 average).  A strider for the last 0.25M at 4:36 pace (13 mph).  A good run, but my back is really sore after this run.  A day off with the family doing some chores and running around.

It was 9 degrees when I got up this morning, I was not up for facing that so I headed to the gym. I wanted to get in a longer run...but on a TM?  I saw Andrea, Lynette, Mauri, McKay, Gray, Kari, Kami...everyone else had the same idea!

1M warmup, then into a 10 mile MP progression run from 6:27 to 5:49.  First half of the run at the normal incline (1.5%), for the second half I bumped the incline to 2.0-2.5%.  At 10M, 0.6M recovery, then I bumped it back up to about 6:22 pace.  Ended with a 0.25M strider at 4:30 pace (13.3mph) and 0.1M easy to finish 13.1M in 1:20:35.  A good TM run!
