Today is Global Running Day. It is also the day I will receive my 3rd cycle of chemotherapy. So guess what I did? Of course, I went running. I was blessed on this day to have my sister with me since she is here to celebrate our niece Ava who graduated from high school yesterday. My heart rate continues to jump into the mid to high 160’s without corresponding perceived effort to justify this high heart rate. Because I believe this is my body telling me that my heart is having to work harder to deliver the needed oxygen to my muscles now that I am anemic. It is a little frustrating, but I think that taking walk breaks when I see my heart rate climb is the right thing to do.
