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.

Easy 10 miles. We were out of town this past weekend for a funeral so took the afternoon off to get caught up on house items and then went for a run before supper.

10 mile aerobic run after work, nothing special.  Gets dark too quick!

Got a big serving of humble pie today. I started out well but quickly faded around mile 18. I know what needs to be done, but my motivation is waning.  Regardless, another marathon finish is in the books. Yaa me!!

3 miles - All miles at around MP, whatever that is at this point considering my most recent marathon performance.  Let's just call it "faster than usual" pace. 

5 miles - TM after work all easy.
