Short-Term Running Goals:

2018 GOALS:

March 17- St. Patty's Day 8k

May 12 - Brookings SD Marathon

One Tempo Run, One Interval Workout, and One Long Run per week. 50-60 mpw. The world's most simple training plan. 

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)

7.5 miles. Hood route to Legacy trail and back. Super foggy. I ran in some old addias boost that i wore in birmingham two years ago. Anyhow, they felt great. Big sales today in sarasota, because it's race weekend. I should go check stuff out. I'm due for new kicks.

1:30 pm. 5 barefoot miles at the soccer fields. (2 up, (8) x 100ish sprints, jog back, 2 down.) I am really enjoying running barefoot. I also missed out on the big shoe sales in Sarasota this weekend. Meh.

3.5 miles. Hood route. 6:45 am start. Super late start. It rained a bunch last night. So I anticipate a couple of lanes will be flooded at the track tonight.

6 pm. 72 deg. No flooding at the track. 1.5 up. (6)x400 w/ 400 recoveries. 2 down. 87, 88, 87, 89, 86, 87. not stellar, but my best track work out in quite some time.

3.5 miles. Hood route. Foggy. Slow running. I am feeling good about this year's attempt to keep the workouts separate from the recoveries. I believe pushing the mileage or the pace today would have been a mistake.

16.25 miles. Hood route to Legacy trail to Circus Bridge and back. 5:45 am start. Last 2 in 7:15, 6:47. I saw boy #2's basketball coach out there. Before dawn. Small. Town.

Spouse is out of town this weekend. I think this is the longest run I've had, where I've left the kids unattended. They're okay, and the house is still here, so... Winning!
