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 running time 42:07.  On the treadmill again because it was really cold outside.  I tried to run at 8:34 pace but couldn't sustain for long.  at 4.5 miles I slowed to slower than 10 minute mile pace.  I am going outside tomorrow no matter what the temp.  Leave Denver late tomorrow afternoon.

total running time 46:50.  The distance is a guess based upon my pace on the treadmill.  I actaully think I went farther but I am not sure how much the altitude affected me.  It is so much better to run outside!!

I was really well rested this morning.  Iwent out at what I thought was an easy pace but came through each time check too fast.  I deliberately thought I had slowed at the mile check point but then ran an 8:28.  I kept it feeling easy and turned around at 34 minutes.  My time checks were progressively slower all the way back.  i planned on trying to run 69 but the wheels just kept coming off as it got warmer.  the split on the way back was 36:39 for a total running time of 70:39.  worse than that I feel beat.  I am going to have to start running real early even on Saturday.

decided it was time for speed work.  total running time 47:02.  warm-up 0.8 miles.  then 7 x 400 with 400 recovery (1:50, 1:51, 1:54, 1:54, 1:54, 1:54, 1:52).  recovery laps were anywhere from 2:18 to 2:27.  then 0.8 cool down.  need to lose some weight in order to speed up.  I have gained at leats 5 lbs since I retired from the army.

total runing time 70:17.  I tried deliberately to go out slower and turned around at 35:21.  I was hpoing to break 70 minutes but my right shin really started hurting.  I came back in 34:56.  two weeks ago I ran this run and turned around at 34 minutes but then really died.  right now I am really sore during the whole run and now with right lower leg pain.  it is frustrating.  I guess I added the speed work too quickly.  next week I am going to reduce the volume and reduce the intensity and see if that helps.

total running 2.9 in 28 :24.  My leg really hurt and got worse as I ran despite feeling fine after icing before I ran.  I walked 0.3 to finish it.  Not sure what I have done but it is very frustrating.
