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 8.55 in the morning and then a faster paced 5.5 during lunch.  I believe it's the TM that is aggravating my middle back a bit.

Over distance day, all easy miles with the exception of a fast finish the last mile.  Felt really good once the legs warmed up.

8.5 before work and 5.5 before lunch.  All real easy because I felt flat.

AM: 8.5 mi before work, included a few easy surges

Lunch: 5.65 mi on the mill, 2-3 min steep hill climbs (8-10%) and faster finish down to mid-6

PM: 7.3 mi on the mill, faster second half down to low-7

Just trying to work in my schedule as many miles as possible.  Legs feeling alright, but my mid-section (inluding my back) is tight the first 2-3 miles.  I think the mill makes it worse.
