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.

6.000.000.00

total time 55:12.  plan was to run 1 mile hard after 3 miles warm-up.  I have been really sore and I think it is becaus most of my running is on asphalt and in shoes that are worn out.  We go home tomorrow afternoon and I have a new pair of NB 1080s waiting for my Saturday run.  I thought I could run the mile faster than I did but I think it is the soreness in my legs and the lap was run with some gradual incline.  splits 9:26, 9:04, 9:16, 8:06, 9:37, 9:42.  average heart rate 125.
