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.

AM: 10 miles, course preview. I like it but it is quite hilly (small hills, frequent). Hernia not feeling hot. Gotta just wait and see.

PM: 4 miles.

5K race on the course. Wet today so I wore my spikes. A lot of us finished close together. I'm really stoked for this year. Only ran 15:49 which is pretty lame but not going to read into that, the course was hard and is probably a good bit too long.

AM: 10 miles along east bank headed south; I really like that route. 
 

PM: 5 miles up Industrial and on to the Minneapolis diagonal. If there was a sidewalk the whole way I think I would stamp it as my official double route. Since there is not we will have to see what traffic is like during weekdays.

10 mile progressive tempo as part of a long run, although I have done 10 mile progressives before and the fact that those usually take 14 miles and that this was on a Monday made this not really feel like a long run. Which is ok. We ran along the beautiful west river parkway heading south. Started at 5:40 pace, got down close to 5:00, averaged 5:22. I felt really good during almost the whole thing. I love that type of workout. Weights and other stuff after made for a long day.

Ran to Silverwood park. Did a workout of 4 by 1 minute with 1 minute rest, then the same with 30 seconds hard and 1 minute rest, but I had to cut the workout after the third one of those cuz I ran into a bee or something and got stung either inside or outside my lip. Just ran home after that.

Tough race. Based on previous workouts and how my teammates did I should've at least been top 20. It's tough and humbling to be back in 30th. I knew I would have a bad race this season but I wasn't expecting it to be this one. I know my team needs me even if this is the level I am at, but in order to reach our goals they need me to be better than this. We beat Penn State and Ohio State pretty easily, but lost handily to Georgetown and got stomped by Michigan and Syracuse. I have plenty of reasons why I think we will be better next time (which includes why I will be better next time) but it's better to just show that at our next race on the home course.

Long run, half of it with team. Hurdle drills. Hernia felt fine, felt my hamstring but a little bit less, I also had a charlie horse in my upper calve last night but that shouldn't be a major issue.

This will be the blog post where I list runs I have found in my new area (Twin Cities) much like I did in Mapleton. Here goes:

-St. Anthony Parkway: Go north on Industrial and follow the pathway for at least 10 miles, although you could continue on for more.

-East on Como Ave. To Como park and east on the parkway.

-Como ave To St Paul backroads

-Gatway state trail headed northeast (park at Arlington Arkwright park? 13 min drive)

 

*Given my concerns over air pollution recently, I am updating this list*

St. Anthony Parkway- Find a different way to get there, then take Stinson Parkway to 31st Ave and then head west to meet back up with the trail. 

St Paul campus farms 

Gateway state trail, particularly the back 1/2

Como Ave/Golf course -> St Paul campus -> Como park -> Roselawn cemetery and adjacent parks

More

 

*Another Update*

From Campus

-East River Parkway south

-West River Parkway south (try going to Minnehaha trail for an LR)

-Transit / Campus loops

 

From Home

-St Paul Campus farms

-Como Lake loop

-Minneapolis Diagonal hook: loop around the cemetery and run the whole loop.

 

Driving

-Gateway State Trail

-Try Pike Island 

 

Warm-weather from house mid-length rotation: Diagonal Hook, Farmers Fields, Como Classic, St Anthony Parkway, West River south, Boom Island, East River, West River north

Workout at a cool place on the St. Paul UMN campus in these agricultural fields. 500, 3xmile, 500, 2xmile, 500. This workout did not feel very good for me. I just felt like I was dying. I would have been better off finishing my food earlier but that should be taken care of next week. But I feel positive about it because this was my first interval workout. I feel a little behind the game not doing this till mid September but in reality what this means probably is that I/we will come on really strong at the end of the season. That's no excuse for not running well next week though. 87, 5:00, 5:00, 5:00, 86, 4:56, 4:56, 87 is what I remember them being about. Doesn't really matter, its a weird and not very fast loop.

AM: 10 miles and weights 

PM: 5 miles east on Como Ave towards Como park. I loved it! Nice place. I think I've found my double run, or at least one of them.

1 minute on, 1 minute off (6 minute pace ish) for 20 minutes total. And 6 by 20 secs on hills. Was a little stressed about some things which is never good to bring into running but that's life.

It was totally dumping rain but could have been much worse as the forecast last night called for 100% chance of thunderstorms for like 3 straight hours. Was a little frustrated that I had no idea where the mile markers were or even when to turn around. Turns out I did it right at 4 miles, and averaged 5:22 on the way out and 5:16 on the way back. 5:19s overall. Would have liked to go faster but I think it is a solid improvement. Doing that on my own, on the walking path (more twisty than the bike path) in the wind/rain was not easy. Hamstring hurt a bit on the way back.

Really tough race. Actually didn't feel too bad going out in like 20th-30th (35th at the mile), but got eaten up. Already strategizing for how to fix whatever went wrong. Tough day.

Apparently I was going 6:15s, didn't feel like it. Really cool run on the gateway state trail. Been having a lot of thoughts about how to go forward. I am optimistic.

Minnesota weather is weird. I will be sweating in 55 degrees, but can be 85 (like today) and not feel too bad. Did a track workout with 1 minute rest on each rep. Good to get some faster stuff in. Still not satisfied with fitness, hopefully I come around soon. Mile (5:09), 3 by 400 (70,69,69), mile (5:02), 3 by 400 (67,68,65), 300 (47), 200 (29).
