So I don't have the flu, just flu like symptoms, and moderate case of feeling bad. Doctor told me not to run, and said that I could injure my heart muscle if I pushed too hard now when I am sick. Yikes! OK, I'll take a couple days off.
On another note, my doctor convinced me to have a heart exam. No issues or problems, just a look see, given that I am in my 40's and had a heart arrhythmia in my 20's. Not a big deal, but I am not getting any younger, and with people I know having serious health issues, better to stay informed than to risk it. I am actually kind of intrigued to see the results of the stress test, etc.
Blood pressure yesterday: 110/70 with a resting heart rate of 64, which doctor said was elevated because of my sickness, so she speculated it would be under 60 normally.
