Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep running. I was recently diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, so my new goal is to not have any seizures, and keep running. Since my last seizure in Jan 2018 I haven't been able to run more than 6 miles at once. Hoping the mileage can come back, but future races are out as I don't know what each day will bring. But I'm not dead and don't have a terminal disease, and for that I count my blessings.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Not get super fat, and run another marathon or ultra sometime soon.

Personal:

6 miles outside in the beautiful weather, 54-58F with nary a breeze. Ran up to the rims where I got a mile in before having to turn around. Much more fun running on a trail versus the same roads I've run for years. Next time I'll drive to the rims and get more trail mileage.

Downhill the last 2 miles and I pushed it. Felt good to go fast"ish". I'm not fast.

6 outside before work. I think I felt the lack of outdoor miles as it was harder than it should've been and I walked for a few minutes at the turnaround. I never do that, but that was when my regular 6 mile route was outside. Lately it's been on the TM with no wind and no undulating roads and conditions. Need more of that.

10 outdoor miles this morning from home. Wind at back going down a steep hill = good. Getting up to the top of that hill previously with a 20 mph headwind = horrible.
