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.

6.13 mi, 1:00:45, 9:55 avg, 128 bpm average

It was a pretty good run.  Ran in the nbhd, got started at a decent time and stuck to heart rate training today.  I felt a slight improvement from the start and was happy to be under a 10:00 average for the run.  Tomorrow I will run socially and not worry about heart rate but not push it either (except maybe a little bit at the end).

I did five miles, then stopped at home to wake up Andy for school then did one more mile.

Weather was pretty nice this morning, too.

Ran at the Y with the Striders.  No heart rate monitoring today.  Just wanted to run easy with no monitoring so decided I'd keep the pace at 9:00 or slower (which I did for the most part except for a little bit just faster than 9:00).  Able to run a little bit more natural feeling this way.

6.32 mi, 1:01:30, 9:44 avg, HR 129 bpm

Ran in the neighborhood.  Extra nice out with cooler temps (but still a long ways to go to cold).  Use HR and stayed below 132 most of the run except when I noticed it was too high and would slow down right away.  Ran just over 5 miles, stopped home to wake up the boys, and then ran about one more mile.  I think this might be my second best HR run and maybe best since Pocatello.

Ran with Striders at Longleaf, specifically ran with Jamie and a couple of miles with Michelle H.  Somewhat coolish morning.  No heart rate monitoring, mostly conversational pace though.

PM - 2.53 mi, 27:30, 10:52 avg

Ran at the Y on the treadmill while Thomas was doing swim team.  First heart rate run on the treadmill, was using my watch instead of garmin chest strap and sometimes used the built in heart rate on the treadmill, it was all over the place so I just ran kind of easy.

Ran with Jamie in the neighborhood which meant I was able to start a little earlier than usual since I had to meet someone.  Ran pretty easy.  Finished about 7.5 miles when I was back at my house.  Woke up Andy then went back out and did another mile up and down the street.

18.1 mi, 2:52:05, 9:30 avg, HR 136 bpm avg

Met Jamie at 6:00 and ran from Longleaf, heading to Starkey park to meet Cynthia and Renee for their 8 mile run.  I wore my HR monitor but wasn't going to look at it until the end of the run.  There was a big cross country meet going on in the park so we ran passed hundreds of HS runners in their staging areas, warming up and getting ready.

Found Cynthia and Renee ok and had a  good 8 miles with them before heading back out of the park and towards longleaf.

Heart rate was good for the first 5 miles or so but would spike here and there and steadily climbed even with the even pace.

Overall a pretty good run.
