Running Accomplishments:

Stay in the game, keep in the moment - have conquered a few of the holy grails of running - sub 3hr marathon, ran Boston and qualified for Boston at Boston, 10K PR under 6 min miles, won a couple of 5Ks in my early days of running, running for 30 years and ran 39 marathons.  The transistion to the back of the pack has not been easy, but, acceptance, stay in the game, root for others, enjoy the rest of the journey.  Another off the bucket list second =  Provo Half IM -  have done 6 open water Tris and 6 pool Tris.  Gave the STG IM a good Tri, hope to take another shot at the IM.

Short-Term Running Goals:

 2013 Race Plan - STG Half IronMan, Lake Mead Rage Olympic distance, STG spring relay tri, STG half marathon, STG marathon, Cozumel IM, Utah Summer Games Triathlon at Gunlock, Murray 5k with family and Utah Half Distance Triathlon, 187 mile red rock relay,  STG marathon,

*note of clarification - cross training miles from biking and swimming calculated as follows: (as someone may wonder) 20 mile an hour bike = 5 cross training miles (those not familar with a 20 mph pace, good bike effort for long distance,  swimming, convert 1 hour swimming to 5 cross training miles.  For those that do not swim much, great cardio workout.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Enjoy the Swim, Bike Run thru Life - Hope to Run a Few Races Support Sylvie - Be a good coach   - Support Jenna, Jeremy, Taylor and Bonnie - my kids are now into running, who would of thunk it.  long term goals, recover from the ankle sprain, accept was it, have fun racing, mountain biking, faster swimming.

 

B of BS Rools Recent Reading List - In order of recommended reads.

Once a Runner (John L. Parker, Jr.)  Best fictional running book ever, a must read

Again to Carthage (John L. Parker, Jr.)  The Sequel to Once a Runner, not often a sequel compares, this one does 

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running ( Haruki Murakami)  things we have may all thought, but may never blog

Roughing It - Mark Twain 

 

Personal:

BSRools, the B stands for Brent and the S for Sylvie.  The Rools come from my personal running rools over the years: Never complain once the run starts, allways pick up the pace into the wind and always pick up the pace on a hill. If someone whines, pick up the pace.  Once a goal is set, no whining, regardless of setbacks.  We were running when running was not Kool.   Kool comes from a race story, ran my first race, 5K wearing a "beanie that had "Kool Aid Kid"

Two a day, ran 4 miles down to 4800 on JRP and home.  Nice little morning run.  Hotter, ran 5.25 miles with Sylvie to 45th and home, ran more than expected, getting that running endurance back.  Running on tired legs, name of the Tri game, seem to always running on tired legs.

STG Sprint Triathlon,  Sand Hallow - Me and Sylvie did the sprint relay, I did the swim and bike, Sylvie did the run.   I was surprised to make the podium, sweet,  I killed it on the bike and Sylvie smoked the run.  It was a fun morning.   Two serious bike crashes, life flighted one of them.  Open water swim is always a challenge.

Early morning swim with Master's coach, Lindy is so nice to help me, picked up some great tips.   Run with Sylvie in Chuckawala, took a different route back from top of turtle wall, fun and beautiful little run.  It is always a treasure to run this run.

72 minutes spinning,  Time Trial,  TT ride with Southern Utah Tri Club,  14 miles, going like a bat out of heck, each rider leaving 30 seconds apart, trying not to get caught, wow, what a workout.  My avg pace was 20.8 miles per hour,  3 riders passed me, but, I will say they were the cream of the drop and 25 to 30 years younger than me, held them off for 12 miles.  Anyway, fun hard workout, gotta be a little crazy to be a Triathlete.

8 mile speed walk, 13.8 minutes per mile, need this practice for when running fails and I need to keep moving during an IM.  Bike was tough fun, 40 miles, up to the top of snow canyon, Keyenta, Tuacon, etc.  Nice to get out in the day.  

Hitting a heavy part of training coming up.

good bye blogging buddies,  as some of you know, I have switched to Triathlons for the most part with a few running races.   The blog has been great, met many nice runners, and appreciate the support over the years.   I am already friends in face book with some runners on the blog.  

If you want to keep in contact, just friend me in Facebook.  Brent Barney

 

Thanks to Sasha, putting the blog all together and making the running community tighter.   

Stay  Kool, B of BS Rools out
