GarageRocker vs Coffinworm, Round 2

1/12/2021 - Cardio Day

Run - 2.2 miles in 18:30

Felt nice to get some running in. Physical anxiety - heartrate, irregular beat, fluttery chest - has been bad so I knew I needed to run. Got new shoes and they seem to be just as good as the trusty rusties, maybe better.

Are you using any meds currently for BP or heart rate?

No, doc and I agreed to come off BP meds November 2019 and I’ve maintained pretty much perfect numbers since. 115/75 average. Whole family gets weird heartbeats here and there but nothing’s ever been found even with wearable monitors. I notice it when I’m getting sick or when I’m run down or under stress. All 3 might be going on right now, have a decent suspicion my wife and I may have the 'vid.

It seems many are getting it. I think I had it a few weeks back. My wife and I both were sick, she had a negative test, so I assumed a cold. But, it was really hard for me to catch my breath while lifting. Much more than usual. I was almost home from the gym, and I was still catching my breath (was about 15 minutes).

Hopefully you get well soon!

Thanks! Biggest indication so far is an abnormal headache, night sweats (fucking profuse, I mean shower and move to the couch bad) real thick mucus, and just being tired. I can still lift so I’m not getting my ass kicked, but I sure ain’t 100%.

Decent session today, form was sloppy overall though. Blame it on poor recovery and sleep. Realized I never upped my salt despite lowering carbs since I’m on a lower volume program. Fixing that and expect to feel a lot better pretty quickly.
