Those fifty year old kids are something. Aren't they?
So that's the plan for next year Susan, at least the half. Assuming I'm still in the area or can travel back. It would be my forty ninth marathon. Maybe I should do an easier one first and have it be my fiftieth. It would be a really cool fiftieth.

Okay one more check in; today's run was the portal / poison spider trail with a little extra of the golden spike thrown in because I'm a klutz. Should have been 12.9 miles ended up being a hair over 14. On to the rec center to colapse in the pool & shower.

Edit; and now off to the brewery!

Sheeeeet Jay, I'm barely in the double digits and they were all awhile ago! So, I got a new GPS watch/heart rate monitor (love my toys)...unfortunately, it's soooo damn honest....
today's run was a street run down through Capitola, 5.39 miles (and I always thought it closer to 6) and an average pace of 9:12, wow much slower than I thought...but I always stop for a bit in Capitola to watch the waves so I guess it takes that into consideration.

Yep, that Moab TRail Marathon/Half seems like a really fun endeavor, or heart attack alley. We shall see!

I off to PA for a few days for my dad's 90th birthday. I probably won't be running, but if snow is good we ski all over town. Easier than driving. It'll be fun to use my GPS for that.

Oh boy...that's a knarly piece of business. Watch those signs! They mean what they say.

Keep running, climbing, biking, LIVING LARGE!

my dad's 90th birthday.


Nothing like having good genes! My Parents hit their 65th wedding anniversary last week and we had a good time in Connecticut.

I'm not doing so great. I trained hard for the Marathon that wasn't (New York) a month ago and I think I should feel like Superman.

But I'm not. I ran 18 miles in 5 days and took today off. Kind of bumping along the bottom. Two months ago, I would've laid down the 18 on a Saturday in a little over 3 hours.

Setting forth my goals for 2013:

100 mile mtn bike race
50 mile trail run

Signed up and stoked for the Squamish 50, Squamish50.com if anyone wants to do an ultra! Spots went incredibly fast on the first signup. They ended up opening the spots for the 50k so more people could sign up for the 50 miler.

What are you goals for 2013?

Moab trail marathon in October. Realistically, the trail half marathon.
Average of 12,000 vertical feet per day for each day I ski at the resorts.
Much more regularity with road and mountain biking

Stay healthy!

Do about 15 races as usual.

Get my shorter race time down.

Do my first International Running Race, a couple of shorter Tris, about 3 Half Marathons, a long bike race.

2013 will be the year of the invert!

Today I ran a 14 mile version of the slickrock trail. Hadn't run since thanksgiving, and felt it!
Also, yesterday I did a big workout in the canyonlands invert boulders. Routes, shuffles sit-ups etc. I think I'm feeling that as well. Though I did get called an old man yesterday. Okay off to the rec center weights, swimming, shower!

My new endocrinologist took me off levothyroxine altogther (my thyroid has come back to life?).

I'm feeling more like I used to. We scratched out a 1/2 marathon (actually 13.6) the other day (my first in a while, Michele's first ever).

Will I become the second ever 70-year old to do a sub-three hour marathon? I'm not counting on it, but 2013 is gonna surpass 2012 4sure.

EDIT:
12/27/12
11:00AM - 10K
4:30PM - 10K
Until endocrinological homeostasis is attained breaking it up may be the way to go.

Cool thread. Motivating.

15 mile run today in the Auburn State Recreation Area. 7 miles on wednesday. 12 last monday...

Training for long runs, and just starting to get the mileage back up after blowing out an ankle (sprain). Weathers perfect in the Canyons! A bunch of ultras scheduled through the end of June (WSER). Hoping for Waldo in Oregon in the fall.

Keep on keepin on...

I did not blister anything, but have a plantar wart that hurts alot. T3 thyrotoxicosis and associated effects are a much bigger concern to me.

Did a killer six mile trailrun Friday in new five bilalias or whatever they are called and if been doing fifty pull-ups, & invert sit-ups with a 20lb weight best since just before Christmas.

But today when it never got above 12 here in the desert all I managed was a six mile stroll..

So I tallied out the results of last year. it's going to take a while to figure out other categories. But I have numbers for overall miles and total pull-ups

1704.4 miles
7522 total pull-ups
-in 2012

So I guess I'm shooting for something in the range of 2000 miles and ten thousand pull-ups in '13.....
Though climbing will come first and dictate some of that.

I completed about three years of regular weight training in my home gym, mostly isolation moves, in November. I had difficulty gaining mass.

So I joined a gym five weeks a go, getting seriously punished by a trainer twice a week, lifting barbells; doing deadlifts, power cleans, squat cleans, front and back squats, push presses (overhead) and various supportive exercises and stretches. Consuming some creatine and lots of protein. Working hard on pullups and pulldowns also.

I gained about eight pounds in the last five weeks. Some of that is probably water weight from the creatine. I am feeling much stronger and reached some new poundages today in the push press, power clean and squat clean. Lifting heavy weights is a lot more fun than I expected. There are a lot of techniques to learn that will take me thousands's of reps to get right. I did at least a couple of hundred of barbell exercises today. No way I could have done that a month ago.

Found a few more tips on the Crossfit website at
