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.

walked for half mile before and after the run not included in the distance

total running time 50:26. plan was 1 mile warm-up, 4 miles of 1K repeats with 1 minute rest then 1 mile cool down. I tried to keep the effort at 7:50 pace. splits 9:23, 7:52, 7:50, 7:51, 8:00, 9:30. The last uptempo was only for 0.25 miles.  ave HR 129.

I cut my mileage back 2 miles. over the last week my resting HR has jumped from 38 to 47. I am concerned that I am over training so this week I am cutting back a total of 6 miles (15%).

total running time 76:29. I did an exercise stress test and was on a treadmill for about 17 minutes with the last 5 minutes being pretty heavy exercise. The plan for today was to not push terribly hard. A phone call came in about 2.4 miles into the run and it stopped my general conference talk without restarting it. I thought I stopped my watch but later realized I just hit the button for a split and it appaers that I was stationary with my clock running for up to a minutes. here are my splits... I got back to mile splits starting at 4 miles.  9:42, 9:22, 3:16.4, 10:29, 6:12.7 (combined a 9:29 mile), 9:28, 9:33, 9:18, and 9:10.  ave HR 125
