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 93:54. slept better so I thought i would do my original plan for 12 miles with 4 uptempo miles starting at 2, 5, 8, adn 11 miles. I ran the first set in about the planned time but then couldn't maintain the planned pace of 9:10. I rearranged my plan and did 10 miles total with uptempo miles at 2 miles, 6 miles, and 9 miles. splits 9:23, 9:06, 8:44, 9:29, 9:23, 9:29, 8:49, 10:23, 10:07, 9:01. ave HR 120. I really struggled. I stopped and rest at 4, 6,7,8, and 9 miles. I came to the conclusion that the vaccine affected me more than I realized.

total running time 79:58. plan was warm-up adn then gradually get faster with goal of sub 80 minute run. made it just barely. splits 9:22, 8:58, 8:57, 8:59, 8:57, 8:44, 8:50, 8:34, 8:37. ave HR 127. this was a weird run. I couldn't go on my planned route as the canal was blocked off by caution tape and the police were actively investigating something. So I turned around and went north. I ran until 5 miles adn then turned back. Just before I hit 6 miles I noticed a sleeping bag right on the edge of the canal path with what appeared to be someone inside the bag. The head was completely covered but it was on a really hard piece of dirt. I ran on by thinking nothing of it but got the distinct impression after about 0.3 miles that I should call and report it. I did just that. not sure what became of this?
