AM: 6.4 miles on a nice cool morning

PM: 3.6 miles after work. Sugar bonked big time right after the first mile. Felt terribly light headed for about a mile and then much better. Regardless of what I eat or don't eat, I always seem to have a blood sugar issue when I run after work. Followed by a light core and leg workout.

AM: 6.5 miles. Started out slow as usual, kind of a struggle until 40 min, felt fantastic last mile.

Lunch: 5.8 miles. Lacked energy the whole way and didn't get that typical burst after 40 min either.

Really starting to dislike miles 2-4 on nearly every run. Body doesn't feel good and feels like forever.

10.3 miles. The usual feelings for 45 minutes or so and then everything was better breathing wise. Sure wish I knew what was going on with my heart and blood pressure the first 4 miles of a run. Doctor said I have really high vagal tone, but I thought that was a good thing and I don't think that's the whole problem. Perhaps blood pressure involvement as I'm borderline low in that category.

Average: 9:27/mile, 96 bpm

Max: 7:09/mile, 121 bpm

Self administered treadmill stress test. Stupid idea doing it unsupervised given my recent heart related concerns, but did it anyway. Resting heart rate prior to test 33. Reached intolerable exhaustion after 1.4 miles and heart rate max of 138. Based on the test result, my estimated VO2 max is 56, which is in the 55-60 range provided by other estimates.

Cooled down with an easy run of 2.6 miles afterward.

AM: 7.1 miles, felt easy because of rest and relative to stress test on Monday.

Lunch: 6 miles, no complaints. Noticed I don't get the usual "high" or energy surge at the 25-35 minute mark like I do during the first run of the day.

All easy paced jogs. Just need to keep things easy and build. Taking care of the kids today while Krista works. Plenty of chores to do and deal out as well. Kids love it when I stay home.

Perfect day for running. Out and back on the local bike trail. Taking it easy and keeping the pace at 8:30 to 9:30 range. Now go on a picnic with family.

Long jog on the trail. Heat and humidity bad again. I would have gotten an earlier start, but had to drive one of the kids to a car wash fundraiser at church. Just can't hang in these conditions anymore. No patience for suffering in dehydration.

Morning run of 6.3 miles. Rained overnight which put the humidity in the 90s this morning. I was drenched after this one.

Lunch run 5 miles on the mill. Progressively faster pace every 6 minutes. Still sweat like a beast.

Morning run 7.14 miles. Sure will be nice once I drop about 20lbs. Can feel the extra weight holding me down.

4 miles during lunch followed by a couple of my key exercises for a few sets.

Morning: 7.0 miles, feeling much better during and after this run

Lunch: 5.2 miles, tired but gained some stamina during the end

After some trial and error, I figured out that caffeine causes my heart to palpitate. I stopped drinking coffee this week and it has made a difference.
