Personal:

I retired from the Army after 26 years of service in 2010.  I moved home to Arizona.  My wife and I are empty nesters.  In 2016 I had stents placed in my heart after discovering coronary artery disease.  Since early 2016 I have lost 30 lbs and got in much better shape.  August 2017 I retired again. We served a mission to Mexico from October 2017 until April 2019.

total time 66:12. plan was warm-up and cool down for 1 mile each. In between run 3 at 9:15 pace then 2 miles sub 8:45 pace. this was a disaster. when I tried to speed up I did but it got hard quick. I changed the plans and ran 1 mile with icnreased effort the 1.5 mile recovery followed by a quarter mile hard. I ahven't slept well for 3 of the alst 4 nights so I think this is what is goiing on. splits 9:34, 9:08, 9:16, 9:23, 8:55, 9:59, 4:59, 2:05, 2:53. ave HR 126.
