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 time 58:03.  on treadmill again yeah!!!  started treamill at 0.01 distance and 6 miles in 56:53.  deliberately held it down at beginning so that I could negative split.  splits 9:59, 9:41, 9:31, 9:23, 9:20, 9:00.  this is probably the best work-out I have had in awhile. I had a find behind me and a ceiling fan.  I had pushed the temp down in the hosue too.  It is at least 10 degrees hotter outside.

total time 42:45.  I ran 4.5 miles timing it.  I gradually sped up the whole run but wasn't pushing it until the last half mile.  time for the 4.5 miles... 41:31, splits 9:29, 9:22, 9:14, 9:05, 4:21.

running inside when the choice is 85 degrees with humidity outside has been awesome!
