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.

Really enjoying the miles today.  Low stress and no pace keeping.  Hamstrings are still sore from weights on Sunday, but don't feel them while running.  Did a couple of sets of weights after today's second run.

Glorious day for a run.  Feels like I'm making progress everyday, but weather has been really good and temps are cool.

Slow and easy with some pickups whenever I felt really good.  Bodyweight is knocking on the door to 180s.

Tough run, jog, shuffle, and walk. knew I was in for it with the combination of higher volume this week and a dew-point at 70 this morning. I just can't handle high humidity because of my body size and sweat rate. Plus in a sleepy stupor I forgot to carry water. Dumb mistake and dangerous as I lost 7-8 lbs of water weight or more than 3.5% of my total bodyweight during this run. I simply had to incorporate walk breaks during last 45 minutes.
