Consistent aerobic and strength training.

Christie Clinic Half Marathon 4/27/24

Sub 1:35 in half marathon.  Then might consider taking a shot at full marathon again.

Personal:

I started more dedicated running and racing in my thirties.  Eventually I developed symptomatic bradycardia and SVT which required a cardiac pacemaker implant and a cardiac cath ablation.  It has taken a long time to get back to running consistently again.  Counting my blessings and trying to remain more balanced with fitness.

9 miles (8:38 avg. pace) - Felt solid throughout.  I think the most recent changes made to my pacemaker might be just what I needed.  Running is starting to feel normal again after struggling since the pm install last summer.  I hope this run wasn't a fluke.

6 miles - A hilly route through the park.  Everything felt fine heart wise.  Very sunny and warm.

5 mi on TM (8:40 avg), felt normal, but legs are getting sore with strength training.  See how they feel tomorrow, might need a rest day.

2 mi on the bike path followed by some strength exercises.  My left leg is sore from the increase in activity.
