a beautiful day

Our first sunny day with temperatures in the 70s this spring made getting out of work for a stress test less stressing.

Ten probes, a nurse checking BP every three minutes, elevation and speed increasing every three minutes on the treadmill for just under 12 minutes. HR recovered quickly under the doctor's watchful eye.

Now, a haltar setup to wear for a total of 24 hours then I can finally shower once its removed.

Initial results are positive with no indications of trouble. The incident most likely caused by dehydration. But total results are not in yet, so be patient.

  2. You & I pretty much had the same diagnosis yesterday...odd I came across your blog recently (from Tom J's blog)--some timing. Anyhow, here's hoping you're on the roads sometime soon.

  3. That's a great initial report. Hopefully the Halter will confirm and you will be back in business.

    In the meantime, enjoy the weather!
