At my annual physical, I found out that I am slightly anemic. Some follow-up blood tests confirmed this. I already take a women's multivitamin with iron, so I'm taking an additional iron supplement. Since the symptoms of anemia are fatigue and difficulty breathing (among others), I'm wondering if this will help me out a bit. My training runs have been tougher than it seems like they should be, so maybe this is part of the reason. I don't know if the supplement will help me out in time for my half-marathon on Sep. 14, though.
Yesterday evening, I had a practice with my tennis team. I played so-so. I lost my singles round pretty badly 1-5. Don't really have a good explanation for that, because my opponent is not the strongest 3.5 player we have. In the doubles round, my partner and I won the first set 7-6, and stopped at 1-2. Not too bad. The waxing gibbous Moon was gorgeous around sunset while we were playing.
This morning, I was back under 128 lb again. Who knows if I'll stay there. I have been very hungry this week. At least I've been busy enough with the start of classes that I haven't been able to dig up extra food.
This morning I did my shortened version of P90X2 Recovery + Mobility. I burned about 110 calories.
