You carry your nutrition, they had a few options for those that chose not to carry - bananas, granola bars, etc.  and then water every 6-8 miles.   Strangely I could have kept running.  

Lol @ myself

4min run 2min walk.

an embarrassing 38minutes and sore the next 2 days.

If you’re going to start from zero, wear a heart rate monitor.  Stay at or under 140bpm.  If that means walking, so be it.  Do that for at least 30 minutes.  You’ll be able to exercise every day.  It’s an aerobic workout, which burns fat, strengthens your heart.  You’ll have more energy, feel better, look better, and literally think better.

I have the monitor.   My heart rate I usually keep in the 160-170 range.  Though I haven’t measured lately

When I run my heart rate only goes up to 125-130. After walking it off for several minutes my heart rate goes down to the mid 60s.

Not bad for a man with diabetes for 35 years. I try and watch what I eat and exercise 4 times a week for an hour a day.

Don’t get too excited.  As you age your max heart rate gets lower.

Pretty good.

I think the best resting heart rate I got was 56 but that was when I was lifting 2x a week + BJJ 3-4x a week + karate 2-3x a week + judo once a week.

I can't maintain that kind of schedule now.  Current resting HR is 60 something.

I wore at heart monitor at BJJ once.  During some hard rolls (sparring) my HR got up in the 180s.  

Sounds more realistic.  For most people, max heart rate is 220 minus your age.
