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.

after 2 mile warm-up I did 3x1 mile repeats with 1/2 mile recovery in between.  total time 72:54.  splits 9:34, 9:15, 8:23, 4:50, 8:23, 4:51, 8:25, 9:46, 9:27

the mile repeats were choppy even thought the times look similar.  I was hard enough that I wasn't comfortable and thus relied on my watch to get similar times but sometimes I was going way too fast and then would slow down too much.
