Long-Term Running Goals:

My main goal is just to stay healthy.  I was injured every year in my college career except for one.  I would like to reverse that trend and always stay injury-free.

Currently coming back from a long 9-month injury lay-off. I was able to start back up running again in December and have been building my fitness back ever since.

Personal:

I am a family man.  I am married to my beautiful wife Amy (who also ran at Weber and is quite the runner).  We have two beautiful daughters named Evelyn (4 years old) and Hannah (2 year old) and we'll have a third daughter in March (or late Feb).

1,000-METER REPS

I had a great workout this morning. I met Ken, Jason, Ben, and Jon at Wal Mart in South Ogden and we warmed up just over three miles with strides. Ben and Jon then just continued an easy run while Ken, Jason, and I got down to business. My goal was to run 8x1000 @ 4:51 pace. We did 400 meter jog for rest (2:05-2:20 time-wise).

My splits were: 2:59.0 3:00.7 2:59.6 2:56.3 2:58.3 2:58.0 2:58.7 2:56.1 for an avg of 2:58.3 or 4:48 pace.

This is the same pace I did 800s at a few weeks ago, so I successfully increased the distance at that pace. Next time I'll shoot for 8x1200 at this pace with same rest.
