1.25 easy with Brian after our hike up little mountain. I was dead after a mile of running and the 4 mile hike. Started getting lightheaded so I called it quits. It was around 8:30pace.

1.5 miles warmup at a quicker pace (8:09). Workout was 2 sets of 200, 400, 200- each with 200 rest. It was on the road since there was a game going on at the track. 

1st set: 49, 94, 51

2nd set: 43, 98, 51

About 200 cool down cause I was tired.

8:37 average. Was with a group of people, it was fun and it pushed me. Feeling happy for finishing 4 miles. I started dying/feeling fatigued around 1.5 miles in.

I had some lab work done yesterday to check my iron levels again. In 3 weeks my ferritin jumped from 17 to 40. Glad to see the supplements are helping. But yes, still iron deficient. It'll probably be a couple months before I get to optimal range.

Did a 1.5 mile warmup then hill repeats. The hill was just short of a quarter mile up. I dropped after 4 because it felt like I couldn't breathe towards the top of the hill, I was breathing so heavy and fast and felt lightheaded. It's like I wasn't getting enough air. I wonder if it's iron deficiency related, probably. But I called it after that and did a mile cool down. 

I can't wait for my iron to get back to normal.

Easy run. My stomach was hurting I think because I took iron supplements on an empty stomach then went running right after.

3 with Brian at Sugarhouse park running laps. 8:27 average. I still just feel so terribly out of shape, but I know I'm in better shape than I feel. I think it's the iron deficiency that's causing me to feel so lethargic and out of breath. It'll be a couple months before that's up to normal range, so it's just dealing with that.

I got approved for Ketamine treatments by my insurance, so I likely won't make it to track Tuesday with everyone for a few weeks. They're almost all scheduled on Tuesdays.

Ketamine infusion this afternoon. So no running. 

The thing I tripped up on the most was the realization that not everyone has either a physical or mental disability (depression, bipolar, etc are considered disabilities). So some people are like... fine? Mind blown haha. I guess I just keep telling myself everyone has it rough but no, I've had a hard life and I have a legitimate disability so those two things have made it miraculous for me to still be alive quite honestly.
