With this session, I tried to knock out some miles in my Yes.Fit 2020 challenge with my desk bike and basically did as many miles as I could stand. I was aiming for 10 but around 6 (obviously) my legs were trembling from the hip down. I could barely stand and almost hit the floor trying to dismount the damn thing. I don’t know if this is a sign that I’m pushing myself too hard or that I’m not pushing myself hard enough.
Today I did two complete 15-minute intervals and felt completely ok to keep going. I think the practice is paying off! Not only that:
I completed Yes.Fit’s The Raven race! It took over a month but I did it! Another medal for the rack. I should take a picture of that soon but I have a couple more virtual races to finish and hang the medals for those. I’d like a wall full of bling!
Every time I finish a run, I remember when I would joke that I would only run if something was chasing me only to take up running with an app that tells a story about things chasing me.
If you read my blog regularly, you see me posting all this workout stuff. So, what’s the point, right?
I got my blood work back from the doctor today. Last time, there were some concerns about my cholesterol. This time?
My doctor said I have one of the best cholesterol levels she’s seen!
Not bad for someone as overweight as I am.
Now, this time the doctor was concerned about my B12 levels so I got me a booster shot and I’ll be going back every two weeks to get more. How did the shot make me feel?
According to some research, low B12 can lead to depression and fatigue, which may explain why I have been tired ALL THE TIME. And I think the deficiency is down to my diet. In order to be “healthy”, I cut way down on red meat, cheese, and I don’t drink milk because it’s gross. I used to have steak once or twice a week. I’ve been having red meat once or twice a month now; ground beef or lamb in chili or stew. Chicken does have B12 but not nearly as much as beef. I’ll have to get back to putting beef into my rotation.
With my new amazing bill of health, I have gone insane and signed up for two more virtual races. I have two going over on Yes.Fit and I had to pause one to finish the other… Yeah, I’m going a bit mad with the running thing but I like it, it’s healthy, and I don’t feel like stopping.
In my mind, I am still looking to lose weight. It’s not for health reasons at all now, since I’m healthy, it’s because I have some AMAZING outfits that I don’t fit in to. They are sexy as hell and I want them to see the light of day.
If you wanna connect with me on Yes.Fit, drop a comment and let me know. I don’t mind being social and I think it’d be cool to connect with people there.
How will I run during the holidays? Well, I ran before Thanksgiving dinner last year. I see no reason to do it again.
