This week was 53 miles of running, 1000 yards of swimming, and 21 "miles" of pool-running -- training log is here.
I moved closer to my "normal" routine this week, with both track intervals and a tempo. Both were quite unimpressive - I'm just struggling aerobically - out of breath with a high heart rate. It's not asthma (lungs feel great and peak flow meter reads normal), and my legs also feel quite good.
I had some blood drawn on Tuesday - checking my CBC (complete blood count), iron levels, folate, and B12. I haven't yet discussed the bloodwork with a doctor, but to my reading, it looks like my iron is still low - that's certainly consistent with how I feel.
We'll see what the doctor says when I have my appointment in early August. In the meantime, I'm already on iron supplements - I've been on them since this spring.
