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. We served a mission to Mexico from October 2017 until April 2019.

I tried to take the meds and do everything right but still had breathing issues.  The good news is that I think I digured out the cause- a plug-in air freshner that Beth had plugged in a month ago.  I unplugged it last night.  I hope that is the reason!  total time 51:06.  splits 10:05, 10:29, 11:20, 9:39, 9:32

more breathing or chest issues.  not going to run anymmore until I can figure out what is going on.  I stopped 3 times in the first 3.1 miles... didn't include the stops in the run.  felt better the second half... I am starting to wonder if this is a heart issue?  total run 63:37.  Out in 33.05 and back in 30:35.  very slow.  something is wrong.

treadmill.  So... the concerns about my helath got to me.  I got off the airplane and went to the emergency department.  4.5 hours later (at 4:15 in the morning) I went home knowing that my chest x-ray is normal, and ekg is normal, and that my labs (cardiac enzymes) are normal.  So... what is causing my chest pain and shortness of breath?  I sletp for 4 hourse and then ran on the treadmill.  I sued the treadmill to control speed and then I went relatively ahrd the lastfrom 4.25 to 5 miles.  the last quarter was at 11 minute pace.  total time 51:07.  splits 10:02, 9:40, 9:49, 9:39, 9:16, 2:41  (5 miles in 48:26).
