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
10.2 mi before work, in the dark the whole way
7.4 mi during lunch hour, legs were stiffer, but managed a faster pace
Hills program on the TM during lunch hour. Slowly built up pace first 30 minutes and then 5 x 1-2 minute climbs at 6-10dg during each 5 minute segment. Progressively faster pace down to 10K last 5 minutes.
Morning 9.25 mi - Easy general aerobic jog in the dark
Afternoon 6.85 mi - Easy jog, rich food last night not agreeing with me today, tummy pains.
Afternoon run a bit faster than normal so not "easy" perse.
