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
Ran 2X each 7 miles with the first run on the TM. Getting cold and dark outside again. Legs are still a bit stiff.
TM again with mile 3 down to low 6 mpm pace.
Did my usual jumping rope and weights circuit after work.
8 miles at a 8:19 average pace. Lower hams and upper calves are a little tender.
Took yesterday off in hopes of shaking the tender spots in the legs. Everything felt good on this run.
Easy progression run with average pace coming in at 7:59 overall. Cloudy and colder. Just a matter of getting bundled up and going during this time of year.
