Saw doctors on 21 September for blood test results, an annual review.  Total cholesterol was 4.3, compared to 3.7 and 3.8 last times.  Bilirubin now 36, compared to 32, 32, 27 previous times.

As both are slightly raised from last time doc wants to check it’s not an upward trend so having another blood test in 3 months.  But nothing to be concerned about.  Just eat less pizza and chocolate etc to get cholesterol back on track 🙂

Doc again declined to fill in health form for overseas marathon (Rome), so going for plan B.

Cool 4C, sunny clear blue skies.  Went for an easy 2 laps of main lake at RV – 5 miles.  Felt OK, didn’t watch HR or split times just kept it steady.  Trying to keep good form I felt abdominal muscles/core tiring the last 2km, but no problems.

Skipped a run during the week to ease back after Nottm, felt a few tight muscles, twinges, esp in knees.  Probably ligaments getting back into shape or adapting after the extended training and long run in Nottm.

Distance:  7.69km
Time:  45:59
Avg HR:  148bpm
Avg pace:  5:58 min/km
