unbreak my heart

Here's the update on Ye Ole Ticker.
It's fine.
I wore my bomb for 24 hours. While it looked like I was having an irregular beat a bit higher than the DRs liked, after a stress test and another EKG, it looks fine. They don't know what causes it and it might come and go. I could go on beta blockers but with my running, she really doesn't want to go that route and neither do I. I'm having blood work done to get out my thyroid though I just had that done in Nov.
So...that's that. After 3 days of not running (which in these weeks leading up to Boston has felt like forever) I'm cleared to hit the road again. WOOHOO just in time for CRAPPY weather.
Oh and hello, who invented that stress test thing? How the hell you suppose to do that without a bra?

Jeeez. I'm glad you're okay.

What is the stress test? I don't even know!

that make you walk/run on a treadmill to get your heart rate up to make sure your heart works.

The majority of healthy people having stress tests are male, hence the bra issue. Also most of these people probably can't run as fast as you, because they aren't runners.

But I can't believe you really can't wear one during the test - if so, it's only a matter of time until someone well-endowed gives themselves a black eye.

Thyroid test's a good idea to rule stuff out....probably nothing but that makes a lot of stuff wonky. Glad the heart's all good!
