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.

Marathon Pace Miles
VO2 Max Miles
My first long run of this year. Felt crummy around the 1:45 point but slowly clicked out the remainder. Drank a lot of sports drink and water throughout as it was humid and I sweat a lot. Pace was around 8:30 to 9:30.

Looks like we both had good weeks. Are you pretty dedicated to weights? I think there is a gold there that I have not found yet. I am going to have my son take me through one of his "leg days", even though it will probably knock me out for the rest of the summer.

Yes, I work weights 1-2 times a week. Not a lot of sets or reps. Heavy weight with a long rest interval. Very important as we age, but it does zap the running a bit.
