I'm Free!!

After 3 long weeks of being hooked up to the heart monitor I am finally done! I woke up this morning to a text message on the monitor saying "your session is complete, please return immediately". Gladly :)
After having to pay such close attention, I definitely saw some things that line up with medications ( heart racing right before it is time to take my beta blocker, etc.) However, there were a couple of things I still don't understand and hope this monitoring will either explain or (hopefully) rule out any issues with my heart. I will post when I have the results.

Otherwise, feeling pretty well overall. Training is going well but my body is definitely starting to feel the higher mileage. We drop to 8 miles this weekend and then back to 11 next weekend.
More later...

Hey Elayne:

Did not know you were still having problems.

I have alot of the same thing with my heart - Some nights it feels like a baloon exploded....

But it always happens after I have had a beer or two..... FYI - for thought.

Hope all works out well.

I have been really worried about ED - any news.

I do not know how to repspond to his blog - because it ask for type of response???

"Anonymous #1" Not sure who this is? Guessing Robin :)
Ed's blog should be just like mine when you leave a comment. Not sure how it is different.
Nothing new on Ed, other than what he has posted. I think Chris plans to call him tomorrow.
