Short-Term Running Goals:

 

  • Sub 40:00 10K
  • 2:59 Marathon
  • 1:25 Half Marathon
  • 18:30 5K

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maintain my health and continuously seek to improve my fitness. Maybe someday get under 3:00 for marathon. More importantly, I'd like to figure out what my maximum ability is and reach that.

I'd also like to find the right balance in life and use running to enhance and improve myself.

 

Personal:

Dad of  two awesome kids.

Also, have one wonderful brown dog named Sammy and just added a grey tiger cat whose life started out rough but now has a better home.

I've recently started another blog so I can easily add lots of pictures and so other non-FRB users can leave comments:

Forward Progress!

 Also, for 2012 I started a blog to write down each day one thing that I am grateful for

Grateful Blog

 

Love living in Florida but love to travel and see the country and rest of the world.

I did not get to run until 10:00pm.  Jessica and the kids were at the house and it was Jacob's birthday so I was going to run after breakfast and after they were off to school but I ended up driving Jacob.  After work went out to Japanese steak restaurant then went back home.  First, walked Stella around the neighborhood loop for 1.7 miles, then ran the same route.

Short out and back run on Starkey Blvd starting from Longleaf.  I picked it up the last mile for 7:17 pace.  Shorter run but pretty good overall.

I am filling this in almost two weeks late so don't remember much about it.

Ran with Jamie in the neighborhood, 6:45ish start time.  I was dreading the dental appointment later in the morning for a crown and one filling which turned out to not be too bad.  The run took my mind off of things.

Short mileage actually done in two parts.  Part one was done at Jessica's house, waiting for her to get back while she dropped off Jacob early.  Then I headed home and took Stella for a quick run just over 1 mile.

Later in the day I also did a fast 1 mile walk in 14:14 which I don't have counted in today's mileage.

Ran from my house out to the new park and then did 3 laps around the lake.  I stopped after the first lap and took a honey stinger gel, then did two more laps without stopping between them and running each one faster than the one before without looking at my pace while I was running.  Pretty nice coolish morning.  This week had some shorter and more sporadic runs (i.e. less consistent) but I think that's ok to help stay out of a rut.

Post run: push-ups 3x25, pull-ups 3x8

In the afternoon saw Tom run at track meet which was mainly relay events including relay medelys (there was also an open 1600m but it was mainly relays).  Tom ran in the 4x1600 relay, going first with a time of 5:02 (1:13, 1:16, 1:16, 1:15) he ended up being the fastest on his team.   Next he did the distance medley relay, first runner, doing the 1200m (automatic PR!) - 3:40 (1:07, 1:17, 1:15) for that one.  Always great to see him do so well.

Shorter run, shakeout for tomorrow's 33 1/3 mile race.  After the run, drove out to Orlando to watch Aubrey in her first cheer competition, then visited Jessica's high school friend that lives nearby.  Watched a frisbee dog show then I got on the road, back home by 10:15, ate some dinner, went to sleep and would wake up at 4:15 am.
