I had a physical yesterday. It's my first physical in a long, long time. Although, my pregnancy was considered high risk so I was pretty much monitored non-stop from 30 weeks on. Not a physical, but still checked out, you know?
I had my physical. Doc asked if I had any specific concerns I would like to address and I said, "I am a runner. I like to run half marathons. I don't want to die at the finish line." To which he said, "That makes sense." So he listened to my heart and I had an EKG and all if fine there. As long as I don't have any sudden pain or breathing issues or swelling I should be fine. Basically, he told me to listen to my body and gave me the all clear to run away.
I also have borderline high cholesterol which I find interesting since I don't eat red meat, nor do I eat a ton of dairy. I did a quick search and figured I'd add some oatmeal back into my diet, I have been slacking. And maybe some of the other recommended foods like more citrus fruits and apples. Ooh and more beans. Hubs is going to LOVE that. ;)
All in all I am well. Which I like to hear.
Oh, and the scale at the doctor's office matches mine exactly. I'm not happy about the weight, but at least I wasn't slapped in the face by it, you know? Sometimes doctor's office scales can be EVIL!
And today I did not run. We aren't getting hit by the storms like most of the Midwest (if you are affected by them, believe me you are in my thoughts!) but it's raining here. I will run in the rain for a race because I hate to waste money, but not for training. Thinking about a Jillian Michaels workout tonight. Or maybe a run if it stops raining for a bit.
