Mile 1274, Chandler, AZ-So I woke up this morning and headed over to the doctors. I thought it was an emergency, but they made me use a different entrance. My doctor is gone, so I got a new doctor. Dr. Cool. NO, that's her real name. Honest. Anyway, the nurse took my blood pressure and said, "Is your BP always this low?". Turns out it was 100/80 and yeah, it's always that low after she checked my chart. Then Dr. Cool entered. I told her about my marathon and my now bloated knee. I was expecting her to pull out the needle and drain the sucker. She felt my knee and basically called me a wimp. Her exact words were something like, "it's just over use and some ice will solve the problem. Have you been icing it?" The doc also looked at my blood tests and said I could stop taking statins for my cholestorol. So, all in all, a good doctors visit. Isn't that cool?
So, I guess it's time to stop being a wimp and start to chisel my body.
I got in 2.6 miles tonight in just over 30 minutes. I felt great. Ran 95% of the time at a nice steady pace. It's good to be back running.
