Running Accomplishments:

Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)

Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Consistent aerobic and strength training.

Christie Clinic Half Marathon 4/27/24

Long-Term Running Goals:

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.

Morining run, felt decent given the deadlifts yesterday.  Not sure why I lift at times since it makes running harder imo.

Morning run but added fartleks during the second half.  Still struggling to find the right balance of strength training and running.  Lifting heavier weights and running faster just doesn't work.  Frustrating.

Lunch run on the treadmill because of poor air quality outside with Canadian fires.  Hammered out some decent fartleks to just get it over with.  Not interested in the treadmill as I've been running outside more.
