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.

Wow! Today I ran the last possible workout I could to compare my fitness this year to last spring. I've gotten positive signals thus far from my workouts, long runs, and easy days, but very negative signals from my 10K race and 10K pseudo-race, which unfortunately are probably better predictors of half marathon fitness than anything else. Anyway, I got a bad sleep last night but went for it anyway. Really nice sunny day outside, the workout was short enough that the temp wasn't an issue. 3 by mile at the fairgrounds with 80 seconds rest. 4:42, 4:37, 4:39. Sheesh! On mapmyrun, the distance is 1.00 miles even when you do it completely by hand and cut corners in line with reality. And, I know this is the same course I ran on 6/6/23 and averaged ~10 seconds slower. Hamstring felt tight during the last rep and afterwards, so I am hoping I can take care of it the next few days.

6:43 pace, Como classic rain route. Just another day of one of the best weather months I remember in Minneapolis. Felt so lucky to run through the forresty area of Como park in the rain.
