Odd running week – 5 Year Anniversary

My wife and I will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary on April 8th.   We packed a lot in 5 years, two kids, both working full-time, both of us in school, my wife going for her masters, me going for my bachelor’s degree.  She then stopped with school last year, it was too much. I am graduating in May with my bachelors degree.  Now my wife will continue with her Masters.   Look for life to slow down just a bit, I know that doesn’t happen, especially with young kids, but just a little will be nice.

We are going away to Baltimore for the weekend for a little getaway, the kids are coming as well.  I heard they have an amazing aquarium in Baltimore.  Should be fun.

Now marathon training, on paper, this week should be the week were I peek at max mileage, which was only going to be 40 miles.  Well that will not happen,  I ran 5.6 miles on Tuesday, and going to run my last 20 miler tomorrow, thursday.   We leave on friday  morning for Baltimore, so it will be only 2 days of running this week.  Not your standard marathon training, but honestly I am not even sweating it.  Last year if I did this during my first marathon training a full-blown argument would have happened because I would be freaking out about my training.  But like I said, my outlook on running has changed, it’s not a job, it’s something I love to do, and feel blessed that God gave me a healthy body to run.   So looking forward to the 20 tomorrow, if I feel good I might even push it to 22, but I will not force it if I don’t feel it.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
