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 47:55.  for this area the weather has been quite cool but it is still 25-30 degrees hotter than what I have been used too.  for the effort I am putting out, I am running pretty slow.  either that or these roads are more than a mile apart.  anyway... it is good to be running.  at the end of my run today the temp was 79 degrees.  not bad.  i left at 5:30 AM.

found a back way to Greenfield Jr High's track so the warm-up is 8:30 which is only 2:30 longer than what it was in Washington.  I ran 8 x 400 with 200 active recovery.  The start of the run wasn't bad but it started heating up fairly fast.  I should have got up at 5 instead of 5:30 but we spent all day with the movers and then all evening unpacking boxes so I was REALLY tired.

work  out:  8:33 warm-up...then 8 x 400... 1:47.6 (1:24.5), 1:48.8 (1:19.0), 1:50.8 (1:19.5), 1:50.6 (1:21.8), 1:49.4 (1:27.8), 1:52.0 (1:27.8), 1:48.9 (1:32.7), and 1:56.1 (1:42.1).  cool down was 9:22.3 (+0:17.8 sec to make up for the metric track).  after arriving home I added 1:12.7 to round out the mileage estimate).  I am really excited to find out that I have a track to run on relatively close.  It would be farther to get to the Highland HS track unless I drive.

I got together with some bloggers todays...Burt, Coolrunnings, marathondreamer(and husband).  We ran just over 5.  I did fine for the first half but then started feeling the heat.  I was bringing up the rear at the end.  Ran 46:50 with them for 5.03.  after getting home I ran another 1:30 for approzimate total of 5.15 miles today and 20 for the week.  Couldn't finish at 19.88!!  :)
