Personal:

†I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired from competitive racing.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;

answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever Iím in trouble,
and you will answer me.† - Psalm 86:1-7

6am...8 easy miles with Curt on a chilly morning (20 degrees and a breeze).  Nice to have the company and conversation on a cold dark morning.  Overall time of 1:02.  (Cortana Black)

4:30am...it was 5 degrees outside so back to the gym this morning.  Right when I was about to start Curt showed up so I had some good company again this morning!  2 miles easy, 4 miles MP progression then 1 mile at sub 5:30 pace.  Overall 7 miles in 43:30 for a 6:13 average pace.  My right foot is still a bit sore from rolling it on Saturday.  I will try to get a run in at lunch today time permitting.  (Old Cortana)

5 miles with Dan around the greenbelt at lunch.  Cool but sunny day, actually a pretty nice untimed run.  (Ride)

I dropped off my wife's car this morning at the repair shop to have the rear bumper replaced from when we were rear ended a few weeks ago and got a new surpise...in the last few days someone had tagged her car on the rear quarter in a parking lot (which we didn't know about) and not left a note.  Unfortunately, this has to be repaired too to make the bumper fix work right, so we are out $400 to fix this issue!  Nice ethical people out there in the world!

4:30am...7 easy utimed miles with Moxie on a warmer but breezy morning that still kept it a bit chilly.  Ran out and back on Sunnyside, ankle still a bit sore.  (Old Cortana)

5 cold and windy miles at lunch around the greenbelt in 37:29.  I never warmed up during this run, brrr.  (Ride)

4:30am...7 miles in 42:50 (6:07).  1 mile wu, 5 MP progression up to 5:46 pace.  1 mile at sub 5:30 to finish it off.  I had to do this with no music as I seem to have lost my IPod since Tuesday, either at home or left it at the gym accidentally and no one turned it in to lost and found, bummer.  I hope I find it at home someplace, otherwise this has been a bad week for lost or damaged items for us. (Cortana Black)

Nice lunchtime run around the greenbelt and an extra loop through the park a bit faster.  A cool day but nice, good day for a run.  6 miles in 43:20 (7:13 average).  (Ride)

I slept in since it is my day off and went to the gym with my wife at 5:30am.  I saw Curt (briefly) and ran next to Rex for a few miles.

2 miles easy, 1 mile easy MP, then into a 4x1 mile with 0.5M recovery at slow MP.  Splits were: 5:27, 5:24, 5:15, 5:10.  At the end I did a hard 0.5M, half at 4:17 pace until the TM started to overheat then backed it down to 5:00 pace.  Finished off with a slow MP cooldown.  Overall 10 miles in 59:00 (5:54 average).  Heading back to the gym after dropping the kids off at school for spinning class with Kami.  (Cortana Black)

27 km on the spinning bike in 1 hour, count as 5 easy miles.

3 easy miles outside with Moxie in the beautiful weather...in shorts! (Old Cortana)

A nice warmer morning for a long run (26 degrees).  I ran a solo mile to find Curt then we met Craig, Lynette and Sarah at the corner for a run though SRL to Broadway and back (just over 7 miles).  Craig and I peeled off down Sunnyside to keep going longer and kept up a decent clip (7:00 pace).  I was really starting to feel yesterday's workout and turned around at 16 miles and ran the last 2 miles solo.  Overall 18 miles in 2:14 even for my longest since the marathon in October.  Good to get a longer one in after a long layoff. 

When I got home, Moxie was really itching to go for a run, so I had something to eat, took a pit stop and got my daughter something to eat then went back out for an easy utimed 3 miles with the dog on an ever improving beautiful morning!  (Mirage)

My wife is a stud athlete!  In the past 6 days, she has gone to 18 1 hour long spinning classes at the gym, logging over 300 miles!  She amazes me with her strength and dedication to cycling!
