Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)
Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.
Short-Term Running Goals:
Improve consistency and build aerobic base. Pacemaker implant in 2016 for Symptomatic Bradycardia. Cardiac ablation in 2019 for SVT.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Lose about 50-60 lbs. and maybe complete a marathon.
Just 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
9.7 mi - Before work and all done really easy.
10.4 mi - Before work, included 8 x speed surges with 30-60 sec rest intervals during the last half.
3.2 mi - Rode the indoor bike (9.6 mi) and then went to strength training. Since I averaged around 20 mph on the bike, I used 3 as my divisor to estimate running miles.
9 mi - Before work all done easy, but not "really" easy. These days I have about 5 levels of easy. Super, very, moderately, really and then just plain easy.
4 mi - Spinned 12.5 mi during the lunch hour followed by some stretching.
7.8 mi - Willed myself out of bed and went wandering around outside. Up a bit late last night after helping coach my daughter's softball game.
3.5 mi - Bike 10.5 mi during lunch followed by stretching.
