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.
I did plyometrics for 8 minutes. I got 1 set done and I was dead. I need to do this about once a week to get stronger. I am doing the routine written about in the November 2014 Runner's World. that recommends doing 4 sets but I will take awhile to work up to 4 sets.
