5K 18:01

 I rank somewhere between the competitive recreational runner and the competitive highschool runner. Here's the scale:

10 - World record holder; 9 - Olympic Athlete; 8 - National elite; 7 - Professional runner; 6 - College All-american; 5 - College runner; 4 - Local elite; 3 - Competitive runner; 2 - Recreational runner; 1 - Jogger

It's a tough scale.

Short-Term Running Goals:

 

  • Run for fun and health, be fit in my 40s
  • Run a strong half marathon, under 1:25, good, under 1:20, great.

Long-Term Running Goals:

  • Be a disciplined runner, to be competitive in my age category, and feel strong while racing.
  •  Somehow actually put together a full year of running: increased discipline and decreased distraction and injuries
  • Be a 17/36 guy for 5K/10K (maybe)
  • Be a competitive Master's runner

Personal:

Spoken for, Christian, piano player, soli deo gloria, at least that's the ideal. Living for Triune God, beautiful wife, cute sons, self; hopefully in that order but Adam's nature and my own choices, not to mention worldly temptations like to play with the ideal.

Idealism, tempered by reality, with a healthy skepticism.

Tue - ran w/ B very slowly getting the kinks out, around the block, 1.5m, ball on 11th but no one there, just shot around some young guys who were done on 13th, probably need the rest

Wed - by Nate's getting a little more respect, was open for some 3s when I ran the court, muscly guy pointed this out, guarded well but smooth shooting tall guy made a game winner on me by just stepping back, I should know this on his tendencies, a step back guy, not a post-up guy, 1.5; going to start putting ball running as VO2 max since it takes so much on my muscles and joints to do it

Thu - discing, biked there and ran, 1.5m, felt good on 11th, played pretty well, forced some a little bit driving, gotta have the stop option if the shot's not there, dribble out, for whatever reason lost every game, played against Carlos and the better guys but still feel sh hv won some, 2m

Fri - discing, met a guy who helped w/ forehand, getting elbow in front and  engagaing hips, 1m

Sat - small hike up to see overlook of Eden at PBC

Asics White Miles: 4.00
