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 running time 52:44. the plan was first mile in 9:05 to 9:10 and then go 9:00, 8:55, 8:50, 8:45, 8:40. I ended up running faster than this but totally understimated how much all 5 bike rides outside would affect me. I ride harder when outside and my legs felt it big time. I ended up with 2 brief traffic breaks heading up to mile 4. I stopped to stretch and rest at about 3.96 miles. I then had 2 more traffic breaks- one quite long. I also had to wait for about 30 seconds for a family with a stroller and 2 big dogs that were crossing a pedestrian bridge right before me. My total stoppage time was almost 3 minutes. I wouldn't ahve been able to run the last 2 miles as fast as I did without those rest stops. splits 8:58, 8:50, 8:48, 8:49, 8:41, 8:38.

I ahd an exercise stress test today. With an iv in place and heart being monitored, I did 15 minutes on the treadmill. They started me at 1.5 mph and 10% incline and every 3 minutes the effort increased. at 12 minutes I was on 5 mph and 16% incline. I managed that entire 3 minutes and then had 2 minutes of cool down from 15 to 17 minutes.

total running time 53:20. Plan was to run around 8:55 for the first 3 miles and then speed up dramatically. I just didn't have it in the legs. I stopped to rest at 4.5 miles and then to get water at 5 miles. Without these 2 rests I wouldn't have managed the last 2 splits. splits 8:55, 8:56, 8:57, 9:09, 8:43, 8:40.
