12 mi

One run after work (9 min average pace). Found a possible fix to the frequent belching during running I've had for several years, but more experimenting needed.

The usual morning and lunch combo.  All easy paces, starting out super slow and building speed from there.

All slow and easy. Not ready for any faster paces. Losing bodyweight comes first.

7.1 mi

Lunch run.  Breathing and energy still get out of whack during the 20-40 minute mark of every run.  I tried focusing on relaxation, belly breathing, and respiration rate.  The easiest solution I've found is taking a 60 sec. walk break around the 30 minute point.  Feels like my heart resets and I can then breath and run more freely afterward.  Now I wonder if this walk break will become a permanent part of my running?

10.6 mi

All miles done at 8:45 - 9:30 pace.  A couple short walking breaks (30 sec) during, first one at 55 min. mark.  This is going to be a long project.

Now time to watch our youngest daughter play some soccer!
