Lunch: 8 miles, averaged 8:14. HR 160. Did some strides.

Heart rate a bit elevated. It was somewhat warm, and my energy was up and down. Lost 5lbs of water weight and it wasn't humid.

Went to the cardiologist to have her look at an abnormal EKG from my physical in April. They did another EKG, and she didn't seem too concerned but she wanted to make sure. The issue is often seen in athletes and it is caused by, at times, lactic acid buildup or low electrolytes. Sounds about right. So I am hooked up to a 24-hour heart rate monitor, the experience of which is a cross between (what I imagine) a colostomy bag and house arrest ankle bracelet feels like. I was mostly ticked I had to miss my Thursday night ride with the guys and I couldn't replace that with a shakeout run because I have a Sony Walkman strapped to my shorts. It comes off at 3:00 tomorrow, which messes up a morning run and the possibility of running in the morning and doing the ride solo in the afternoon. But I guess when it is your ticker you just suck it up and check possibilities of the list

I had one of those in high school for a day. Are they not letting you work out with it?

They told me to wait. Iím a heavy sweater. I lost 5 lbs on this run and it wasnít that hot or humid.

I made it through the 24 hours. It wasnít bad, just awkward.
