I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much.

My longest run after June last year was 10.0 miles. Forced rest and recovery. Now that it's a new year, my restriction is gone. I didn't intend to go longer right away, but I felt so good on this run with spry legs and great weather (60 deg, no rain) that I ran 10.5 miles in 76 min. I'm still not racing for at least 6 more months, though. That would mean a whole year of no racing, and 2 years of no competitive racing (yes, Western States 100 was non competitive).

PM- several of us have a bit of stomach issues today. By the late afternoon, I felt mine had settled enough to do a short run without needing to carry a full roll of toilet paper. 4 miles in abour 31 min.

AM- 11 miles. Planned on 10, and it was a slow 10 (mainly 8 min pace or slightly faster), but then I figured now that my 10 mile ban is over, why not throw on an extra mile, just cause I can.

PM- PM run with Seth and Barry. It was pretty cold out, below 40 and breezy. I actually felt really good, as opposed to yesterday. Lots of energy, no soreness from the hills or rocks, and I even ran away from the other two at the end. Normal loop, plus a little extra to go see the property Barry is thinking of buying.

Lunch- Dan wanted a workout, so we ran to the lake and ran a 5k. I tailed behind the others- my lungs generally felt ok, but my legs were burning, especially my hip flexors. Started at 6:25 pace, then gradually slowed till I finished at 6:45 pace. It was my first sub-7 min miles since June. I'll take it. Finished the 5k in 20:30 (that's nothing to write home about!) and did 8 or so miles in all.

PM- Finally had time for a run late afternoon, so I figured I'd tackle two items at once- went to the gym and watched the first half of the NFL playoff game while running 13 miles. Felt pretty good, a bit tired by the end. Once again, this was my longest run and my first 60+ mile week since June.

Lunch- frisbee friday, but on a thursday. That was due to expected cold, heavy rains all day tomorrow. Ran the GE trail plus a bit by myself first, then an enjoyable game of frisbee with 10-11 people. Fun times.

AM- morning run. Felt kind of "blah" probably due to 4-5 hrs sleep most night this week. Cut the run a bit short, 6 miles.

AM- 7 easy, 8-ish pace. Been a tiring week, and I think I needed a bit of a lower mileage. Hopefully I'll get more sleep and a few more miles next week.

Was supposed to do a cold run at Paris Mtn with Seth, but had to cancel to take a kid to urgent care. They couldn't figure out what is wrong with her arm, though. We'll hear from the radiologist tomorrow.

We're supposed to have ice and snow tomorrow, so we did Frisbee Friday on Thursday again. Great weather for a game, not too windy, cool. 5v5. I even got a black eye from a contested catch. Fun times. Broke my streak of running pre-game.

Freezing rain is falling, it's 30 deg and 20+ mph winds, the roads are icy, and the gyms are all closed. I'm going soft- I think I'm just taking a goose egg for the day. Plus, kid number 4 is turning 3 years old today. She's now allowed to play with almost every toy, according to the toy makers. I better sit back and watch

Grew up in Denver. Not sure I ever saw a more intense game than that. Here's hoping I'll be a Broncos fan in Carolina country for a Super Bowl showdown. ‪#‎GoBroncos‬

Lunch with the guys. Great day for a run, 50 deg and overcast, minimal wind, not rainy. Felt pretty dang sluggish at first but stuck it out for 78 min.

Got sucked into work during lunch, but made it out at the end of the day. I was a bit underdressed for the temp and wind, but not terribly so. 10 miles that were slower at the end than the start.

AM- Holy cow was I tired today. I've come down with yet another cold, and am stuffy, sore, and tired. I slogged through 6 miles in 50 min or so. Not a great run, but better than 0. This is my second highest week since last June. Looks like I'm finishing the month just over 200 miles.
