Ran on the treadmill over the lunch hour.  No heart rate issues.  It's been nearly a year since the surgery, but I think the pacemaker settings are finally just about right.

4.75 mi - Morning run.  Got up late so didn't have time to go further.

4.5 mi - Lunch hour on the treadmill due to heat.  HR didn't increase like it should so took a short break at 2 mi and restarted slowly using deep breathing to get it going.  Finished fast.

6.4 mi - Morning run, legs were feeling flat and a little sore in spots.  Just felt different.

3.6 mi - Lunch run to get to 10 miles for the day.  Feeling good until mile 2 when an insulin bonk struck forcing me to slow down.  The body is very sensitive to what I eat before a run.
