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
7.3 mi + 3.7 mi
Took several days off last week to get over an illness. HR responding a bit better today. Still feel tired around the 30 minute mark, but can trudge through it now.
7 mi + Strength training
Took a longer lunch for this run. Felt solid first 45 minutes and then HR dropped quickly after running a long downhill. Didn't bounce back after that so had to shuffle the rest.
Strength training after work.
3 mi during lunch. BLAH!
7.2 miles during lunch. Still having HR and fatigue issues around the 40-45 minute point forcing me to slowdown and walk sometimes. Sucks. Might cut back all runs to 40 minutes until I go back to see the specialist.
4.9 miles in 40 min. during lunch. Felt very good. HR and energy levels remained stable during entire run.
