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.

Completed my first half marathon in over 2 years.  Had a lot of fun chasing after people and getting my butt across the line as quick as possible.  I thought I ran it faster based on my effort, but I didn't look at my watch after mile 8.  I'm way off my personal best, but I was pushing it as much as I could at the end.

5.3 miles during lunch.  A little tired.  Quit caffeine (again) on Tuesday.  I keep telling myself that I don't need that stuff!!

Long run.  A bit warm to start, but then cooled off nice at halfway point.  Pretty views with the changing leaves.  Paces were 8:30-9:30 per mile.
