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.

Nice run along a trail that went through the foothills near the Y. I liked it. Then a couple strides.

Good workout today, I beat my 2 mile PR (converted from 3000) on all three reps of our 3 by 2 miles w/ just under 5 min rest. I ran 9:49, 9:54, and 9:54. I felt great during the whole thing until the last rep when I got a ton of these sharp sticky things in my flats that hurt and immediately gave me blisters. In fact, I may have felt a little too good. I was in the chase group which was separated so I never felt as pushed as I would have with other guys there. To me that's part of the BYU walk on magic. You train all summer thinking you are working hard and then when you get there and are running faster than ever but are in last place it forces you to really push yourself. But overall today was good.

Today wasn't my best workout, but I'm happy because aerobically I felt fine, I just felt Tuesday's workout in my legs (and in my feet) still. Come next week, I hope to be better prepared. Today we ran the Michigan: 1600 on the track, 90 seconds rest, 1 mile grass loop, 90 seconds rest, 1200 on the track, 90 seconds rest, mile grass loop, 90 seconds rest, 800 on the track, 90 seconds rest, mile grass loop, 90, 400, 90, mile. My splits were: 4:47, 5:17, 3:43, 5:19, 2:26, 5:17, 66, 5:07. Note: the grass loop miles may have been a tad short since we were cutting the corners a bit and since I was so far back I wasn't only getting like 80 seconds of rest.

Beautiful run today on a hilly trail in the mountains. 6:13 pace for 16 miles. It's been quite a week, I'm happy to have a day off before getting at it again next week!
