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.

Weekly summary of mostly non-running week.

I did make some calls about trying to get into see a doctor or PT but no luck yet, hopefully this coming week.

Sunday - (1.7) walked with Sammy around the loop

Monday - (4.1) 1.7 miles loop with Sammy walking, then 2.4 miles (in 30 minutes) on treadmill at Flexone running/walking, followed up with some weights

Tuesday - (2.25) 1  mile w/ Barbie and Sammy, then another 0.25 with Sammy to go pack and pick up "something" that Barbie had left behind.  PM - 1 more mile with Sammy

Wednesday - (2.7) - 1.7 miles w/ Sammy in the morning.  Jenny's boot camp in the evening which included 1 mile of running.  Also, 2 miles biking to  and from FlexOne

Thursday - (2.3) - 1.7 miles w/ Sammy in the morning, I wore the Garmin to see how fast I was walking, averaged 14:20 pace.  Another 0.6 miles in the evening w/ Barbie and Sammy.

Friday - (2.7) - It was raining so I went to the Y, warmed up on the bike, did some stretching and started walking on the treadmill which turned into walking/running.   Kept it at an incline of 3.0 and sometimes higher.  Did some bench presses after (12x115, 10x135, 8x155, 4x175, 12x135), the heaviest set felt pretty good, maybe time to move up.

Saturday - 22.7 mile bike ride up to Starkey, a few miles more on the bike trail there and then back home after a brief stop at the Strider's social hour.
