Short-Term Running Goals:

2017 GOALS:

August 26- Fort Hamer 10k

RECOVERY (I'm not a kid anymore) and SPECIFICITY (make training runs mean something).

Also, I am determined to put my boys on some snowboards by the end of the year. This is the year.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Continue running as often as I can, as far as I can, as fast as I can. Teaching my kids (by example) the rewards that come from putting in the work. Very slowly get to 50 states.

Personal:

I'm married, with two sons, 11, and 12.

I started running because someone dared me to.

I ran my first race 3 days after my 40th birthday. (Disney)

5.5 miles. Hood Route. 56 deg.

6:15 pm. At track. 2 up., 3 min. rest., 400 in 1:21, 3 min. rest., 400 in 1:23. 2 down. It's been a while since I ran something other than 'easy.' I was due, and the Achilles feels okay. I wanted to start easing back into this stuff, and I think this workout served its purpose. I'll add more reps / distance next week. When I got to the track, there were 2 guys running the wrong way. One of them was going very fast. I never saw that guy before. They were there for my warm up laps. Since I didn't want a head on crash, I went the wrong way, too.

Yesterday - I was at a conference in Clearwater - No running.

Today - new shoes test run! 4.6 miles. Ringling Bridge. Kind of windy. no pains! I'm still a bit out of shape, but this is going in the right direction.

12.9 miles. Legacy Trial to Venice Avenue and back. 6:15 am start. 1:47:27. 8:20 pace. Fairly constant pace. Second run in the new shoes. No ankle brace, no heel lifts. Things seem to be going well. I would like to go for 10 miles Sunday, but I don't want to push it. We will see. Then, off to watch Boy #2 in the first soccer game in the new I9 league.
