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.

7.3 mi + 3.7 mi

Took several days off last week to get over an illness.  HR responding a bit better today.  Still feel tired around the 30 minute mark, but can trudge through it now.

7 mi + Strength training

Took a longer lunch for this run.  Felt solid first 45 minutes and then HR dropped quickly after running a long downhill.  Didn't bounce back after that so had to shuffle the rest.

Strength training after work.

7.2 miles during lunch.  Still having HR and fatigue issues around the 40-45 minute point forcing me to slowdown and walk sometimes.  Sucks.  Might cut back all runs to 40 minutes until I go back to see the specialist.
