Christie Clinic Half Marathon 4/27/24

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.

Morning 6.5 miles in 56 minutes. Soaked in drizzling rain. Felt really good and even caught myself speeding a bit, well that might be a stretch, let's just say I was going faster but it still felt easy.

Lunch 3.5 miles + light weights. Still feeling really good after the morning jog so thought I'd do a double just for the heck of it. Last 0.5 mile gradually faster down to MP, whatever that is at this point. Followed run by easy squat thrusts, calf raises, and incline crunches, two sets apiece.

5 miles on the TM in the morning. Cold and wet outside so decided to just hop on the mill for a while before work. Followed by one set of push-ups.

6 miles outside during lunch. Cool weather felt really good. Followed by one set of pull-ups. Decided to keep my gym membership so I can run during the lunch hour. Only $10 per month, but thought about running after work instead so wouldn't need it. Problem is I forgot how much I don't like running after work. Feels like I'm cutting into family time and helping around the house.

Slipped this one in late in the day. Didn't feel good until 30 minutes. Week has been a dud running wise. I need to make it more of a priority and do it earlier in the day like the old days.
