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 three beautiful daughters named Evelyn (4 years old), Hannah (2 year old), and a new baby girl born in March, named Nora.

400-METER HILL REPS

I met up with Jason, Ken, and Ben at Smiths and we ran 7 miles easy before Jason and I did some hill work. The plan was 6-8 reps. But after the first few it became obvious that eight wasn't happening. Jason did four reps and I did six. The hill is a 5% grade, where you gain 68 feet over 400 meters.

Splits: 75.6 77.6 73.4 72.1 78.6 71.7 for a 74.83 avg.

Jason and I did these two weeks before Phoenix last year where we both had a PR in the marathon and thought we were pretty fit. Back then I averaged 77.95 on this same workout/same hill. I couldn't break 75 on any of them and I remember really trying hard on the last one. So I'm pretty pumped for today's result.

10.55 miles easy on Tuesday Trailday with Jon, avg pace, 7:41/mile. One of the coolest July mornings I've experienced in Utah; I almost needed gloves.

Lunchtime: 5.45 miles at work, avg pace 6:16/mile. I picked up the last mile in 4:34.8, which isn't bad for the 16th mile of the day, in trainers, and hurdling a cement barrier.

AM: 12.2 miles easy on Monday Funday with Jon, avg pace 6:44/mile. My legs were sore Saturday night and yesterday morning. But I rolled them out yesterday morning and used Denver's new air massage machine last night and the legs felt quite decent this morning.

PM: 5.45 miles easy at work, avg pace 6:58/mile. HR 130 beats/minute.
