Monday started as a great run and turned pretty scary when I got about half way out. I ran down 24th St and just as I was getting to Lake of the Isles it felt like my heart jumped into my throat. My pulse was pretty quick and it hurt to breathe. So I stopped and walked for a minute or so. Everything seemed normal, so I started running again. I soon repeated this pattern for almost 3 miles all the way home. Not a pleasant experience and pretty scary. I was a little under-dressed.
The doctor’s suspect cold induced asthma, gave me an inhaler, told me to cover my mouth and nose, and wanted for a while at least to monitor my heart rate during training.
I also procured a sinus cold that is still lingering on.
On Saturday morning I was still a little leering of running outside so we hit the gym together, with Nadia. I ended up running on the treadmill for 45 minutes. Trying not to push too hard, but still get a decent workout in. The YWCA’s nice treadmills picked up my heart rate monitor and provided excellent feedback throughout the run. The doctor wanted me to keep my pulse at 60% which was 114. It peaked at 187. Oops. I felt good afterwards, tired later.
Sunday I really wanted to run, but we decided it wasn’t the best idea so that I could try to knock this sinus thing.
