After my more recent runs, I really don't feel that I deserve my graduate badge anymore
Since graduating, my fitness levels seem to have deteriorated rather than improved. I can no longer run for 30 minutes without stopping. Today I went out for the first time in 2 weeks. I covered a total of 2.2 miles, but walked for about a minute after the first 15 minutes and then again after another 10 minutes. My total time was 27 minutes. Terrible!
I've been irrationally exhausted recently, so much so that I got my bloods checked. Anaemia has been a problem for me all my life, but amazingly, at the moment my Hb levels are at the lower end of normal. So I can't blame my tiredness on that. I have low sodium levels due to me anticonvulasant meds but they've been low for the last 20 years, so I can't blame that either. Apparently my Folate levels are low. Can that make you feel tired and weak? I don't know.
Anyway, as I couldn't blame anaemia for my tired and heavy legs, I blamed lack of fitness and ran. I'll just have to keep going until I get back to where I was. Heavy legs or no heavy legs!!
