Not a slug!

Well, I'm no longer a really, really slow slug. I worked out tonight with my "Cancer to 5K" running group. For the first time in five weeks (since the program began), I finished the entire workout. Other times, I wasn't able to run during all of the workout and had to walk because I was so winded.

I'm not 100% sure, but I'm fairly certain it has to do with my iron level in my blood. Last week, I started taking iron tablets and I have seen drastic results. I'll know more on Thursday when I play softball. If I can hit a triple and still talk to the 3rd base coach after sprinting, then the iron is helping. Hmmm...I haven't hit a triple all year during treatments. I'll just have to suck it up and be a hitter...just for scientific reasons!
