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
Mixed workout with 2 mile barefoot run followed by a couple sets of skipping rope, heavy bag boxing, and basic weight training exercises.
Easy 8 miles before work. Hardest part was getting up!
8.5 miles before work. Wanted to quit early because of negative thoughts, but kept going.
7 miles during lunch, tuffy. Note to self, stay inside if dew point is at 76.
5.5 miles during lunch. Faster at the end.
15.4 miles after fixing a big breakfast for the family. Great weather day!
