Personal:

I retired from the Army after 26 years of service in 2010.  I moved home to Arizona.  My wife and I are empty nesters.  In 2016 I had stents placed in my heart after discovering coronary artery disease.  Since early 2016 I have lost 30 lbs and got in much better shape.  August 2017 I retired again and we are going on a mission to Mexico in OCtober 2017.

total time 40:38.  it had rained so I had to run a path that I wasn't familiar with distance.  I had on stertch between about 2.4 and 3.4 which I knew was a mile and I ran it in 9:49.  I didn't sleep well being on call and I felt sluggish on the run.

I did plyometrics for 8 minutes.  I got 1 set done and I was dead.  I need to do this about once a week to get stronger.  I am doing the routine written about in the November 2014 Runner's World.  that recommends doing 4 sets but I will take awhile to work up to 4 sets.
