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"

Sink like a Brick - swim 800 meters (half mile) rest 15 seconds for each 25 meters.   Wow, swimming is tough.  Rode the bike for 10 miles, beautiful day, lite workout day.   Upper body free weights, 100 crunches, wall squat.  *Note, never lift upper body weights before going swimming again, feel exhausted today.

Wasatch Back Relay - lady at work is on a team, 13 minute miler, darn, would love to be on a team with my 10 minute miles.  Maybe try and hook up with a slow team next year.  I have only been on one relay team, 100 mile peace officer relay around Utah Lake.   Our Kennecott team won the corporate division beating a running store team.  The same year, 5 of us on the team broke 3 hrs at St. George.  Kenny Maugn was on the running store team, had a bet with us for a new pair of running shoes, we beat his college team 45 seconds.  Kenny still holds the 19 and under age div. record at St.George set in 1983.  Relays are great fun.   I still have a newspaper article where the reporter interviewed me about the race, he choose me because it rained like crazy during my 10 mile leg.   Relays are for great memories.

Early morning mud puddle jumping, ran 3 miles along the dirt river trail jumping mud puddles in the dark, weird kind of fun, 9 min pace or so.

Moring break, upper body circuit and free weights.

Lunch time gym workout, today is the first day in almost 9 months that I have had the time to workout at lunch, did the arc machine like a crazy man for 30 minutes burning 570 calories. Sad and Happy, do they go together? During the crazy man workout, 4 of my old running buddies seen me and came over to talk. Sad that I was not running with them at lunch, runs gone by, and happy to see them and runner jabby walkie. Let me introduce these friends - Colleen, two time division winner at the St.George marathon, Harry 73 years young and still runs a 21 minute 5k, Tony ultra distance runner and Davey new to marathons (got him started running them a couple of years ago. One thing about good running buddies, they are always good buddies. It was fun to talk running.

Spin class with Sylive - good workout - sad and funny, do they go together? A young man in the class, challenged, sang with all the 80's rock n Roll songs played by the instructor. The instructor did not appreciate the singing, took away from him leading the class. Amazing thing, Jason knew all the words. I sung with him on the last song, maybe the instructor was irrated with me also. Such is life, don't take things too serious.

Easy day, 1 hr 24 minutes spinning.  It has been nice to have the knee feel better the last few days.  I may start running two days a week on dirt.

Swim like a fish, no, drag like an anchor.  I am not giving up, my swimming skills, I have none.  Anyway, swam 850 yards today, increasing my 50 yards each time until I reach 1500 yards (about 1 mile)  May do a double workout today, have not decided, going on a 50 bike ride with my tri-coach on friday.

You ask for it, you got it.   Rode 50 miles with my Tri-coach this morning, started at the cracker barrel in Springville and did a big loop west and south and back.  It was  blast, we really pushed the pace most of the ride.  It was a great little, litte traffic along country roads.  Never be a smarty pants, thought I was doing well, dropping my coach a couple times, come to find out, she did a three a day yesterday.  I call her Dianamal for a reason. 

Avg pace, 18.33 mph, with some hills. good effort.

*Note about Dianamal, (diane) I got her started in running marathons about 12 years ago, she switched to Triathlons a few years ago, so she kinda owes me some free coaching, between long time workout buddies.

Not like me, slept in until 6:15.  For whatever reason, had no energy today, maybe the 50 mile bike ride yesterday.  Decided to wait and run with Sylive.   With tired legs, good day to push the pace, simulate the 5k at the end of the Sprint Tri.   One of the few days in the last year where Sylvie could not smoke me.   I am not a stop and go runner, Sylive stopped several times to catch her breath.   Goal next week, 7 mile run, start building running endurance fot Hobble creek adn St.George.
