Short-Term Running Goals:

-Be really fit by early September and make the team even though I’m getting married in August. 

-Not burn out early in the season 

-Be On the team that wins nationals 

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to continue running as long as possible. I don't feel a need to run marathons; I would rather simply be able to run 5Ks and 10Ks for much of my adult life and at least get in a few miles until I'm pretty old.

Over 10 miles and strides. I checked my pace just once using mile markers on the river trail today and I was running 6:15s. That's no surprise. When I run alone that's kind of what happens. Maybe I should back off a hair.

I bounce back and forth with how I feel about training with the farm team. Once again, I didn't feel as beat up after today's workout. Complacency can be a significant issue in running. Yet at the same time, track season is a ways away. With each workout I do I am gaining confidence and a feeling that I am building traction and getting stronger and faster. I believe that will propel me to a good track year. Today we did 8 by 800 at Kiwanis with a bit over 1:1 rest. The whole thing felt pretty good except around reps 5 and 6 where on the steep downhills I felt some tough bowel problems. Thankfully, I didn't entirely fall apart and felt better by the end. 2:30, 2:27, 2:24, 2:23, 2:24, 2:25, 2:23, 2:19.

Uh oh. Woke up this morning with a sharp pain in my lower outer left knee. I feel like this has happened before, and I may have even written about it on this blog. Perhaps I should make an injury log. Not sure quite what it is. I ran anyway and only ditched strides. While running it felt fine, when I would stop it would hurt to start again. I took some ibuprofen and hopefully will be ok. Felt good other than that, I'm in great shape right now.

Today's effort didn't really feel like a workout. 64 400, 3 min rest (though it was supposed to be less), 2:22 800 (5 min rest), 2:29 800 (we were only supposed to make it feel like the race so I let someone else lead this one and chilled), 3 min rest, 61 400 (difficult, but I focused on keeping my form completely together and being relaxed). Knee felt fine during the workout, I'm hoping it's getting better! :)

Morning: woke up at 5 to drive to Pocatello. I had a bit of a sore throat, but not too bad. While I was racing I didn't feel anything wrong with it. I didn't feel like I did great myself on one of the most insane courses I've ever run (super steep downhill followed by super steep uphill), but I was really proud of our team for winning the race, beating Idaho State on their home course 32 to 36. Not bad for a "running club". 

Night: I needed to get in more mileage so I went for a run. You know what it feels like when your legs just start moving faster without you even asking for it? That's what happened. Before I knew it, I was rolling 5:30s or so on the way back. I love that feeling of going super fast and having it not even feel challenging.
