rhr:56 slept:8.0

Hmm, so I kept taking my heartrate this morning because I really wanted it to be as low or close to yesterday so I could go for my first jog. But 56 was as low as it got...

Also felt a bit weak/tired for most of the day, so decided not to chance it. I'm totally coming back, but have a strong preference to not be a super-zombie again, so am being careful. So silly that just an hours walk yesterday wiped me out today!!

Orienteering (walking) 1:11:01 [1] *** 4.4 km (16:08 / km) +140m 13:55 / km
14c rhr:50

I was so excited to go orienteering today, I couldn't get to sleep last night. =)

And it was fun. Even walking, even in the thunderstorms.

Strictly walked, except I let myself gently jog in from the second to last control, legs felt a bit weird when I did that, but wasn't totally totally wiped.

Navigated fine, which wasn't too tough considering my speed. Still messed up 7, because I became convinced every little rock was the right boulder, should have discriminated more on size, since only one was mapped! Frequently I think I would have taken different routes if I had been running. I straight-lined almost everything since it didn't help to take easy routes or trail routes, just needed to cover minimal distance!

And 2nd test came back, positive for recent mono (this one can tell the difference between recent/past like the Lyme one I had), so I really have had both Lyme and mono within the past 3 weeks... Crazy. But feeling tons and tons better, but am going to not push it today and hope walking around at least part of a course goes well tomorrow!!!!

Then maybe try a 10 min jog Sunday. Super psyched!! Will keep in tune how that goes over with the body though.

A good day! Had more energy than in days past, throat feels better, things looking up... Sleeping 9.5h last night mighta helped. Will keep trying to get that in!

Oh, and also have shiny new 15" macbook thanks to work. (Seriously, thanks work!) Currently installing up a storm, woo!

Still alive, not feeling too awesome, now have a sore throat, but definitely done with fever and headache also seems to have passed. An intriguing addition to the craziness is that I got called this afternoon and had a positive Lyme result too.

So do I have mono? Or Lyme? Or both? Jeez....

Will try to come to one of the WCOC meet days at least, maybe walk around a course if I'm up for it. Don't think racing is in the cards. Boo.
