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.

Mileage day today... 10 miles at 6:30 pace. This is our first uninterrupted week of training without a race so I'm actually a little worried about how hard it it going to be. Apparently we are doing a brutal workout tomorrow and another one thursday, with an insanely fast long run on saturday. If everything goes well, even though I'm not doing doubles anymore, I'll probably go above 70 miles again this week. 4 fast strides and the core/ plyo work again.

Brutal tempo run workout today. We started at like 5000 feet and ran this road that just went up and up and up. Occasionally you'd get a flat spot which was awesome. It was supposed to be in three segments- easy/medium, hard, and hardest. After starting at like 6:30 pace, people moved it up to like 6:20s pretty quickly, which didn't feel easy at all. Eventually it just got super hard and the last two phases kind of melted togehter and were both really tough. Luckily I didn't get in over my head early and I was able to stay focused the whole time. I ran 50:07, which is a hair over 6 minute mile pace. IR/T10/IP

10 miles at 6:50 pace today. Yesterdays workout was definitely still in my legs. I didn't feel quite as snappy on my strides either. We did some more drills today. IR

Trying to stay positive here... I guess not every workout can go your way. I couldn't have seriously expected to have continued improving on every single workout for the entire season, and today things just kind of fell apart. I was still exhausted from tuesday and also very dehydrated. After a 2.5 mile warm up we ran five 1000 meter repeats. It was supposed to be six but coach let us stop one early. I ran 3:05, 3:06, 3:08, 3:09, and 3:06. Stay positive and get rested for Saturday, that's what I have to do. 4 strides. 1.5 mile cool down. IR

It's crazy how fast your confidence level can change at this level. On thursday I was in the dumps after a workout I probably could have run as a high schooler. Today was my first "hard" long run with the team. We started out at 6:30 pace for three or four miles and then just ratcheted it down. The last mile or two I had to book it because I thought maybe I could break 90 minutes, and I did! I ran 89:35, which is about 5:58 pace. The cool thing is that I've always wanted to go back and run the Pear Blossom so I could break one hour in the ten mile, but now I don't really need to because I hit ten miles (if I was running even splits) in under an hour and then kept going for another five at altitude.
