I have settled into the routine of adriamycin and cytoxan (AC) every other Wednesday. I receive the 4th and last AC on June 19th. Next up will be taxol starting on July 3rd and also given every 2 weeks.
The Training and How if Felt
As much as I desired to stick with the routine of going to classes at Formula most days during the week and then going out for a run outside on the weekend, the weekend after chemo is getting tough and I have taken these days off from running and opting for walking instead. My energy starts improving the the following week and then i start feeling back to normal by the time I am due for chemo again. Running feels about the same as it did last month. It still seems to be harder than it should be. Again, my heart rate gets high more quickly and higher than it seems it should be considering my perception of effort. Strength training continues to feel great.
What Did the Data Show?
My resting heart rate continues to be elevated into the 60's to a similar extent as it was last month, but this seems to be stable now. My average HRV is about the same this month as last month. I continue to see that I am spending an increased time in deep sleep compared to my pre-diagnosis self. This month, it seems I have had more recovery scores in the green zone. Maybe this means that I am managing my stress better.
