Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)
Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.
Short-Term Running Goals:
Make a come back from setbacks and build aerobic base. Pacemaker implant for Symptomatic Bradycardia in 2016. Cardiac ablation for SVT in 2019.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Lose about 50-60 lbs. and maybe complete another marathon.
Enjoy doing stuff I wasn't built to do. Married with children, and two fluffy dogs.
Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 1 Cor. 1:20
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! Psalm 118:29
7.3 mi + 3.7 mi
Took several days off last week to get over an illness. HR responding a bit better today. Still feel tired around the 30 minute mark, but can trudge through it now.
7 mi + Strength training
Took a longer lunch for this run. Felt solid first 45 minutes and then HR dropped quickly after running a long downhill. Didn't bounce back after that so had to shuffle the rest.
Strength training after work.
3 mi during lunch. BLAH!
7.2 miles during lunch. Still having HR and fatigue issues around the 40-45 minute point forcing me to slowdown and walk sometimes. Sucks. Might cut back all runs to 40 minutes until I go back to see the specialist.
4.9 miles in 40 min. during lunch. Felt very good. HR and energy levels remained stable during entire run.
Strength training only
4.8 miles during lunch.
