Personal:

Happily married with one kid. Chemical engineer. Although I've always maintained a healthy level of fitness, I didn't pick up running until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I try to get a short run in during lunch time at work and then a little something else after work. Some might call that a weekend warrior, but I make an honest effort during the week as well. Say hello!

AM - 13.3 Easy miles on the treadmill with some strides. I'm signed up for a local trail race this weekend on a snowmachine path near Island Park. Not sure I'm mentally/physically ready for that cold though!

PM - 6.8 to double it for the day

Treadmill. The weather is especially crazy right now. Not sure the road to work will be accessible.

Tried running outside after the gym got clogged with New Year's resolutioners. I bet they'd all be gone if there weren't TVs in the gym.

AM - 1 mile WU + 14 miles at goal marathon pace (8:00/mi) + 1 mile CD. I felt really good this morning. I came home and still had so much energy, even though the rest of the house was still asleep. Got some cleaning done and even had the patience to prepare some steel cut oats. I used a sample drink mix that I got from the Everglades Half. It's called Gnarly nutrition. This was the last one. I really liked it, and I'm sad it costs over 1 dollar/mix. Too bad I'm cheap.

PM - 4.99 miles easy on the treadmill.

Was pleasantly surprised this morning to find out that work was cancelled. The place I work at is rather isolated (50+ miles from any city over 20k in population) and today was a very icy day. So I got to put in some desired mileage, when I thought I wasn't going to be able to run at all today, since we are going to a family party this evening, which would've been right after work.


AM - 8.25 miles on the treadmill. All easy, except I did the last minute at 6:00/mi, and felt pretty strong. I think I'm getting a little better.


PM - 7.2 miles on the treadmill. All easy, with a couple of strides.

AM - Treadmill at work. 5 miles. Had to get a doctor's note before I could use the gym there, hence the long delay (I've been working there for 7 months now).


PM - Treadmill at apartment gym. 4.59 miles. Pizza night with friends!

Squeezed in a couple of hours in the early AM. My wife got 5 teeth pulled yesterday and the 10-month old is sick I think. Not much time for running!

5 miles in the afternoon for recovery. Didn't feel quite right this week. Probably the new shoes.

Complete rest day. I woke up very sore, a lot more sore than I would've expected. I am guessing it is from increased mileage, so I will just relax a bit.
