Short-Term Running Goals:

-Qualify for the 2024 Olympic marathon trials

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Run a few fast marathons. Grandma's, St. George, and Boston are on my target list. An Olympic Trials qualifier would be amazing. 

-Break stroller records? 

-Stay fit for a very long time. I believe what goes into making a competitive runner at age 60 is much different than age 20, just like what goes into making a good marathoner differs from a good sprinter. I hope that by taking care of my body, I can be very fast for my age as I get older. 

 

Personal:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I eat a whole food, plant-based diet, which I believe helps my running. I like chocolate shakes on sunday nights and I will always call the Pacific northwest home.

Probably a bit slower than 7 minute pace, although I felt more recovered today for sure. Got a lot of junk in my lungs on St A parkway, maybe I'll take a break from that.

Hit the jackpot again with a dark, overcast, quiet saturday morning on east river flats and east river road. It was really enjoyable, except my hernia being a bit sore. It started raining on the way back and is now supposed to dump 3.5 inches today. Sorry, Oregonians. I was really surprised to see I only ran 7:07 pace though, that did not feel that slow.

6:59 pace means progress, but I still felt tired and decided to pull the plug on the half marathon this weekend. I'd love to do it, but it just doesn't feel like the right time right now.

6:54 pace on west river. That's a good sign of a recovering body.

Longest run ever! 20.1 miles. And technically my fastest long run ever at 5:43 pace. The Gateway trail held to fashion and it was cloudy again this morning. Less people in the trail at 6:15. I just kept going and going, even against my better judgment when my Achilles started feeling a little tight. I finished the trail and ran a half mile on the road it pops out on, and it felt like the edge of the earth (probably because I've been living in a city). So pretty. A few of the mile splits are definitely bogus but I'll report them anyway: 6:41, 5:43, 5:48, 5:33, 5:31, 5:44, 4:55, 6:00, 5:05, 5:20, 6:01, 5:00, 5:55, 5:35, 5:41, 5:55, 5:35, 6:02. My tiredness at the end was due mostly to the mileage and lack of food. The pace wasn't really bothersome, even after feeling tired early.

Turns out the "hills of Tennessee" are no joke. You can't run from the house here like at all, so I tried to run at the hike we went to and it worked out not the best.

6:46 pace afternoon run on farmers fields after getting home. Wasn't used to running at that time, and I might still be recovering from the long run, and we woke up early this morning- for some reason, I felt trashed. The clouds and thunderstorm made it a lot more bearable though.

6:51 pace, boom island.

Found out yesterday I may be out from running for longer than I thought post-surgery. That made me very sad.

Inputting this later, I'm guessing it was east river flats

Mindlessly did the east river flats turnoff instead of the bridge to west river, so I got there via the UMN bridge instead. Mileage estimated.

Kind of weird run but fun. To go out with a bang before my surgery, I decided to wake up a little early and bike to Minnehaha park. I had a problem with the app, and a person trying to be helpful ended up taking the last functional e bike. At least that means I can feel like this was a more legitamate two-event workout, even though it meant getting a hip workout. It was raining when I got on the bike but stopped pretty soon after. I did 7.8 miles in 37 minutes. Then I got off and ran around pike island. I got lost once but it was in a cool place. It felt like the middle of nowehere, except a huge bridge passing overhead. Kind of interesting. Then I ran around pike island. It was pretty cool. I realized I was taking longer than I intended and pushed it hard on the way home. Despite this, I only ran 6:00 pace for the 17.02 miles. That is dissapointing. I was soaked in sweat due to the humidity. I think either hypoglycemia or dehydration caused the slow pace. Doesn't matter too much as I am about to lose all my fitness anyway. It was weird getting off the bike and running, my legs were still trying to pedal. It was kind of funny while it lasted for like 10 min.

Last run for a while :( :( :(

Ran to 18th with the fam and back, and then to falcon heights park

As it happens, I am at exactly 2300.0 miles on the year.
