Quick check in as we are leaving for the hundred this afternoon
Been having a quiet week with just short runs or bike rides to keep the legs ticking over. Forecast mixed, quite warm and sunny Sat with rain and wind arriving 4.00am Sunday
Got some good / bad news yesterday. Apparently my lungs are in great condition, my haemoglobin levels are in the top 5% of the population prompting the consultant to ask if I trained at altitude!!! Sadly though the breathlessness is down to a heart problem (moderate) for which I am being referred to a cardiologist. Advice was generic - take it easy!! Now planning a more modest target for the weekend
Anyway I'll keep running slowly until told to stop I think. Another ear operation next week - so all in all I am falling apart at the seams.
Have a good weekend everyone and I'll report back on Monday
