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.

Unfortunately, I had to break my pre-conference long run tradition, given that 9 miles does not qualify as a long run. That being said, I did enjoy running to Como park and enjoying the beautiful changing colors on the trees.

Wretched night last night, as both I felt sick again (how?) and the toddler was feeling really sick. Yuck. Took me a long time to get up the strength to run. Hopefully I get better so I can have a good birthday run and long run.

About 9 miles yesterday at Como Classic. Had a better sleep the night before. Found a new way to upgrade the route.

6:24 pace on the gateway trail (to Stillwater) after temple. Was the hardest 6:24 pace I've done in a long time. It's ok, that's what happens when you get back into it.

Approximately 9.25 miles on west river. Nice weather this morning (42 degrees ish), but due to shorter days and colder weather, I think my days of morning runs are numbered.

New weather called for a new route. It was snowing this morning! I ran east river road. 6:50 pace was my fastest besides the LR since surgery, but that may have also been because there is no major hill in this run.

33 degrees but I opted for shorts actually. Kind of sad to say it, but I got out late and didn't quite finish the resevoir woods out and back like I wanted to, so obviously I was hustling on my way home. Like, I was pretty much maxing out. At 6:27 pace. Kinda sad. I'm surprised its taking me this long to get back to normal fitness. Oh well.

East river flats in 65:30, I think about 7 minute pace. 25 degrees out this morning. I wore a hat and gloves with my long sleeve shirt, but I think in weather like that it might be time to bring out the big guns to be more comfortable.

Really warm day today, in the 70s. When I ran on Gatway (left fork) after the temple, it was in the 50s I think. Ran 5:56 pace! It also didn't feel like so much of a chore to finish the run at the end, I wasn't as exhausted even though I continued to bring the mileage up. Maybe my previous long runs are kicking in now for my fitness. 

Splits according to the watch: 3:16, 12:35, 6:01, 5:41, 5:40, 5:59, 5:19, 5:22, 6:04, 5:50, 5:52, 6:08, 5:38, 6:08, 2:43.

Como classic, approximately 6:47 pace. I think running in the afternoon made it quicker, although I was still sore, I think from sitting in the car immediately after the LR saturday. Had to run in the afternoon today, it was my first time since May doing so from what I remember. Not very sustainable time-wise, but it sure was nice to run in on a rainy fall afternoon.

East river flats. 7:12 pace? Idk. Super pretty overcast morning, with the sun rising and casting a gold glow against the purple.

LR on west river road. There was some sort of half marathon that was going to start later, which meant that even for a saturday, the traffic was nonexistent. I was running late again to be home, so it was amazing I got back so quickly and literally never had to stop on the way back. Using the course mile markers, I was able to identify one mile as being apparently 5:22 and thought I was in for a really big day. Turns out I averaged 6:06 which is slower than I thought I was going but on the whole was not a bad effort for 16.14 miles.
