Personal:

I'm married with four children.  I run with a group called the Bingham Butt-Kickers, a really fun group of people that gets me out running early on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and sometimes Saturdays.   I recently found out that I've been running with poor form for many years, which has probably contributed to some nagging aches and pains I've had for years.  One of my big goals now is to be able to run with better form and to have running feel more effortless.  I hope this won't take too many years to achieve!

I missed my group today because I had a doctor's appt. for a physical this morning.  I was supposed to fast for it, so I didn't think it was wise to run hills for 10 miles and then not be able to eat for maybe two or three hours after.  It turned out that I chewed one measly little piece of gum and they said that would alter the results, so I couldn't do my blood test today.  All because of one little piece of gum!

Anyway, my workout today consisted of 20 minutes on the Stair Master at the SJ Rec Ctr, and then 30 minutes of pool running at Marv Jenson's.  I will count that as 3 miles.  I also lifted weights, mainly for my legs to strengthen hamstrings, glutes and quads.
