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.

13.000.000.00

total time 2:07:26.  ran the first 4 with my brother... the effort on the bike yesterday along with the heat both afftected me.  the plan was first 7 at 9:15 to 9:30 pace and then 3 up tempo at 8:40 pace followed by finishing at 9:15 to 9:30 pace.  Not even close.  I handled 1 faster mile and then died big time.  my plan was unrealistic.  splits 9:23, 9:18, 9:35, 9:58, 9:17, 9:13, 9:21, 8:44, 10:00, 10:29, 10:46, 10:56 ( includes 1 minute of walking), 10:26 (includes 30 seconds of walking).

total time 76:58.  initial plan was to run 4 half mile repeats but it was 79 degrees at 5:10 and I adjusted the plan to do 2 half mile repeats.  9:57, 9:26, 9:33, 9:29, 4:04.7, 9:30, 9:39, 11:01 (when I stopped for water I thought the watch was stopped but it was actually running for at least a minute- and probably 1 minute 10 seconds- with me standing still) second half mile was slower at 4:17.6.  this is way to aerly to start treadmill running and by Saturday we are supposed to be at 72 degrees.

total time 72:19.  72 degrees at 4:46 am when I started my run.  I took my hydration belt with me and had 11 oz of water during the run. the plan was to run up-tempo for 2 minutes "on the 5's" (at 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 25 minutes, etc). The first 5 minutes were warm-up and then 2 minutes were run at about 8:10 pace except for the 5th and the 6th (at 45 and 55 minutes) were run at about 7:50 pace.  splits 9:09, 8:57, 8:59, 9:02 (only had about 1 minutes of up tempo during this mile), 9:00 (only had about 1 minutes of up tempo during this mile), 9:06, 8:59, 9:08.  I felt good about this run.

total time 2:04:09.  I took it easy yesterday expressly to see what I could do today.  It was supposed to be 74 at the start of the run but I forgot to check.  10 minutes after I finished it was 78 degrees outside.

Plan:  9:20- 9:10- 8:45- 9:20- 9:15- 8:45- 9:20- 9:20- 8:45- 9:25- 9:25- 8:45- then whatever 

Acutal:

          9:20- 9:04- 8:43- 9:16- 9:14- 8:43- 9:18- 9:14- 8:43- 9:38- 11:28- 10:19- 11:08

the 11:28 included about a minute of walking.  Stuck with the plan through 9 miles... the heat and the pace got to me.  Weight before the run 155; weight after the run 149.6. I drank about 22 oz of water during the run. average HR 127.  I think this run will help when I am keeping it more steady and it is cooler.

total time 44:24. plan was 5 minute warm-up and then up-tempo for the rest of the run.  splits 9:00, 8:20, 8:20, 8:20, 8:19, 2:05.  average HR 128. this stressed my quite a bit but I will go easy until Satruday and I am going to run a half marathon on 27 July and the goal is 1:55 so i need to get a few hard runs in.

bike total time 33:03. average speed 11.2 MPH with average HR 101.

total time 1:59:43.  I got up at 3:50 AM in order to run before it got too hot.  My phone said the temp was 81 at 4:10 am when I headed out. About 10 minutes after I finished the run it was 78 degrees according to my phone. I went out with 11 oz of water and I drank it all and filled up at 5 miles and then again at 10 miles so I drank over 33 oz of water (had some straight from the fountain both times) and I still lost 4.2 lbs during the run.  The goal was warm up for half a mile then run 9:20 pace until 4 miles, 9:15 pace from 4 to 8 miles, then 9:05 pace from 8 to 12 miles then see what I could do for the last mile.  I am really very pleasantly surprised with how the work out turned out.  Splits 9:35, 9:16, 9:19, 9:21, 9:15, 9:14, 9:14, 9:13, 9:04, 9:07, 9:04, 9:01, 8:59.
