on tuesday, after 32 days off (with 3 whopping days of running sprinkled in there), i finally made it out for a run. i now know how people on "biggest loser" feel when they first start working out; i even had the urge to puke a few times (but didn't).
tuesday (8/10) pm run: 3.21 miles, 30:55 (avg pace 9:39), avg/max hr (174/193), 88*/81% humid
you'd think i did a speed workout based on my hr stats. my tested-max is 203-ish! i should point out that while it was 88 degrees and 81% humid, i did not break a sweat. yeah that's normal right? supposedly my inability to sweat is not life-threatening, but from what i've read on anhidrosis i'm not so sure. i thought this was going to be my starting block for getting back in a routine, but we'll have to wait and see.
i know i am partly only able to run because i'm medicated, but i may as well run this week since these are only 10-day 'scripts (and duh, of course i hope that one day -sooner rather than later- i will be able to run/live life normally again). my 19,473 doctors and i are investigating my messed up, out of control immune system.
which speaking of, i'm soon going to hit my deductible (and i'm on the "catastrophic" plan, so it's a nice, high deductible). soon all my medical junk will be free for the rest of the year! anyone know if health insurance covers liposuction?
