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.

8 miles - Morning jog on the mill followed by pull-ups until tired.  Really need to get outside, but so cold and dark.  Tough to do.

4 miles - Progression run on mill during lunch followed by calf raises and leg raises.

This year will be the lowest mileage total I've had in nine years. What happened?! A job promotion with more responsibility and daddy duty basics are a few reasons, but a big one is the competitive fire is down to a smolder and not sure how to get it back. Time to reflect.

Merry Christmas!
