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.

plan was for 13 miles and to do 2 three mile segments "no slower than 8:30 pace".  I ran the first segment from 3 to 6 miles going 8:05 pace.  The last 45 seconds or so I did slow but that is ebcause I had been running at about 7:50 pace for a few minutes.  The second segment I shortened to 2 miles because I was having to go near full effort to hold even 8:35 pace.   Before the half-way point I decided to run more than 13 and see if this workout would give me a half marathon PR and it did!  my watch said 1:56:09 for the half but that was my time for the 13.15.  here are the details:  total time 1:56:09.  splits 9:24, 8:57, 8:57, 8:05, 8:06, 8:04, 9:38, 9:14, 9:03, 8:22, 8:30, 9:28, 9:02, 1:20  average heart rate 135 average pace 8:50.

Plan was 6-8 fartleks over 1-1.5 minutes. I chose to do 90 seconds at the halfway point for each mile (seven total). Total time for the run was 63:49. Splits 9:38, 9:08, 8:59, 8:56, 9:02, 9:00, 9:05. I did extra stretching last night and before I ran today. Average heart rate 123. This felt pretty comfortable. My legs have been heavy as I have had to do most of these runs on asphalt. We are headed home to Az tonight and I will stay on dirt canal paths for awhile.
