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.

Did the full east river flats run. Map my run isn't working right now so I am not sure what my pace was. My knee still feels a little locky at times and it seems to be coming from the outside. Not too bad though.

6:41 pace, east river road. That felt pretty comfortable, other than my knee which is still not up to scuff.

Ran 6:44 pace on the way back from Boom island park. It's not there yet, but my knee does seem to be doing better today. So is it the shoes, or simply giving it time without workouts to heal? I don't know. But I should plan to mix in old shoes in the future along with my newer ones so I don't end up with a bunch of pairs of old shoes I need to wear out.

Knee feeling better. I tried to take it easy in preparation for the race. I think I did so.

Ran with fam for the fourth time this week. Then I kept it nice and slow and did strides at the end. They were still at the park when I came back.

I'm a little embaressed to admit this was a race. Unfortunately, the race is a straight shot southward and there was a headwind coming north, but I thought it would be pretty mild. Was nice weather. You could tell it was really humid out there, but it was sunny and not super hot. I think I assummed I would win it by so much that I felt the need to run the first mile faster than I would if I should have. Unfortunately, this was another race with wonky mile markers- I hit 1 mile feeling a little gassed in 4:42, but that made me stoked to see what I could do. Apparently my next mile was 5:11, which ruined that excitement. When Mile 3 was a 5:00, I realized M1 had indeed been too early. Anyway map my run says it was 250 feet of elevation gain. That felt like a lot for me, near the end when most of it was at least. I kind of gave up a bit. You link up with the 5K runners (I was passing the walkers at first) on a bike path. Normally I love bike paths, but I don't like dodging and weaving through clueless walkers on an already windy, hilly, bumpy path. 31:15 is not the time I wanted. The 10K they planned didn't consider taking the bike path, so it may have been closer to 30:50 for 10K in my calculations. Not the confidence booster I wanted prior to the 1/2, but it was still fun to hang out in Stillwater after with my family. I solidified a few conclusions: A) The east side is my favorite part of the metro to go to. You can get all the way to Stillwater on a chill highway in 30 minutes. B) Stillwater>Duluth. The former is much prettier than what I saw of Duluth last week. Also, I know people go up there to go camping, but if we go camping next year, I'd like to try something around Stillwater because I think it could be just as fun in some ways, and a lot closer to home.
