Weekly re-cap

It’s the weekend! Time for the happy dance. I have to work today but it’s a half day, I can do this. Today is the twice-a-year craft/clothing/food market in our little town and it’s so fun just to walk around. I’ll be headed there after work today.

This week was STAAR testing for Texas kids. I strongly dislike state testing. That also means there were no softball games so it was a pretty quiet week.

This week I had a physical. I’ve never had an EKG or chest x-ray as part of a routine physical so I figured it was time. My EKG was good, resting heart rate was 55. My doctor asked several times if I worked out, what I did, how I ever got my heart rate up high enough to get a good work out. I assured her I did! I’m just waiting on blood work now.

She also said something that makes me want a new doctor. She said when I got to be late 40’s or 50 we would discuss me not running. <I’m sure I had a blank look on my face>. I would not stop running just because of my age and for her to say that to me now, really makes me question her.

Have you ever had a doctor tell you something like that?

Did you workout today?

Who’s racing this weekend?

  1. Well that’s certainly an odd comment for a Dr. to make assuming you have no health issues. Plenty of people run well into their 80″s.

  2. THat’s INSANE! My dr. is a runner ,so he absolutely gets it, which is so great! What a foolish thing to say. Ugg.

  3. Yea, I would definitely question that. I wouldn’t say to find a new doctor per sea, but at least ask her for a good reason. I’d like to hear the reasoning as well! Doesn’t seem to make sense to me.

Tell me what you think!
