Giulietta In Verona

Doctor told me to use double sports bra when running, advice I followed the prior week; however, I forgot last Tuesday. With 5 miles planned, the bouncing testing proved that bouncing still hurts, a little, but hurts. I completed only 3 miles and like Giulietta in Verona (Romeo and Juliet) half of them were done supporting my boob with my left arm. You gotta do what you gotta do!!!

I could not have forgotten the double support
on Thursday, so my five miles were successful. Testing of the day? Sprint Testing. I needed to know how fast I could go without hurting. I did two sprints of half a mile each at 8:34 min/mile. Successful.

Waiting still for test results that will determine if chemo is needed, but I am already planning on having my first 5K race of the year for Valentine's Day,
Love ‘em or Leave ‘em.

What a wonderful spirit - double-bra'd heroine of mine! Keep it up. Prayers still coming your way thick and fast.

8:34 min/mile -- fast!

Way to improvise -- gotta do what you gotta do!

I also admire your spirit. I can't think of a non-runner I know who'd "get right back on the horse" like you -- they'd be laid on the couch feeling poorly about life. Not Lizzie-Lee! You're our hero!

You are fast! It is wonderful to see. I'm sorry to hear, but please do what you need to to stay healthy and to heal.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I have seen reflections of what you've commented on recently!

Nice speed there, Lizzie!!

And fingers crossed for you on the chemo. Whatever happens I love how you've already decided to do that 5K. Great positive attitude!
