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"

20 mtn bike ride with Sylvie, gave her a workout, she bagged the two hardest miles and waited for me, she was a trooper given how crazy I ride some times.

*Note, over it, past it, moving on - tomorrow is a new day, scrap book IM is done, do not look at it until a year or more has passed, it is what I do today that counts - new training plan starting soon.

Early morning swim, had no intent of swimming 37 laps 1850 yrds non-stop, just kept going, good mental thing given the swim issues at the IM - Get back in the groove.

Ran with Syvlie after the swim, beautiful day, had not planned on running because of toe nail on the big toe, going to get it taken off on monday, sore as heck, ran anyway. It was fun to get out on the trail.  I am going to start ramping up my running to get ready for the Red Rock relay and STG marathon.  I did say marathon, going to give it another try.  My race schedule for the rest of the year has almost settled.

Summer games Triathlon - June

Murray Fun Days 5k - 4th of July, spent $180 and registered the kids and grand kids, should be a fund day.

Kokkoplli Olympic Triathlon

Stg Marthon

Utah Half distance Triathlon (Half Iron man distance

Senior games (5k, 10k, Bike Hill climb, Bike TT, Bike race, Triathlon) 6 races in 6 days

Red rock relay - I think about 200 miles, 12 person team, don't know the details, daughter in law signed us up.

Possible additional races - Herriman Tri, Snow Canyon Half, Olympic Distance Tri at Lake Mead - the possible races are tentative based on family things going on.

I am suppose to be cutting back, well, maybe someday.

It is nice to get out of the IM funk, gained 5lbs, lost motivation, still bummed, scrap booked the race, got it out of my system, start training for the June 15th summer games Tri.

Rant on - just needed to get this out of my system, best wishes to all you PR seekers this year, I may not comment on all the races, but will be watching.

Stay Kool, B of BS Rools out

Hope to go on 20 or 30 mile bike ride this afternoon.  24 mile ride

Took the Fezzari out for a ride today, first time using her for almost a year, better handling than the Cervelo, but not quite as speedy, anyway fun to get out.  Went yard selling today, Sylvie hit the jackpot with clothes, I bought the grandson a cook Tri Jeresy for biking.  Seen many runners out today, talked to two ladies training for Utah valley. 

34 miles riding, hair cut, had a allergic reaction to Niacin, new seat covers for father's day for the ridgeline.
