Short-Term Running Goals:

Focus on improving my marathon:

  • Steady pacing
  • Getting below a 7:50 pace at St George in October
  • Learning what works better for me (type of nutrition, cross training, etc)

Long-Term Running Goals:

Running a sub-3-hour marathon is a personal dream. I hope I can gain an edge towards it with all the good advice on here.

Happily married with a giggly one year-old. Half-Colombian engineer working as a contractor for the Navy. I didn't pick up running seriously 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, but the weekends are where I try to make ground.

6.32 miles at lunch time - 3x5minutes at LT with 1 minute jogs. 3x3minutes at VO2max with 2 minute jogs. 2x400meters at mile pace with 3 minute very easy jogs. I was hoping to do three 400s, but apparently 6 miles/50 minutes is not enough time for all of that. This was the hardest I've pushed myself in awhile. It was grueling but also fun to work really hard like that. One month and one day until Bryce Canyon. 


5.01 easy miles with Ellie in the stroller. It was hot today, I was ready to go back inside.

90 minutes easy in the early AM. Felt pretty good, except for a weird twinge in my lower back in the last 0.5ish. Hopefully nothing. 10.29 miles


Ran across the neighborhood as a warmup for a test run on a treadmill that someone is selling. I decided to buy it. It's about a year old and looks unused. They are moving on Monday and trying to sell it quick (i.e. for a bargain). Score! 1.82 miles


3.51 easy miles with a few quick bouts to stay fresh for tomorrow's test.

Treadmill workout/fitness test: 15 miles at marathon pace (7:42/mi) speeding up to LT pace for the last mile. Loving the new treadmill, but I think I'll run outside while the good weather lasts.

5 easy miles around the neighborhood in the early afternoon
