Shanti, weird because I just got logged out! I had to think about how to re-log in because it's been so long. Thanks for the new thread!
Plady, when I was in college we had a professor who always said "White Rabbit" on the first day of the month. It became a contest because you had to be the first person to say it. People would call him just after midnight but he was too smart for them! He answered the phone, "White Rabbit". There were intricately planned out schemes for being the first. He officiated our wedding and we gave him a white rabbit (and Alice one) as a gift. I have a picture of him hugging that thing. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.
Geo, Fletcher had breathing issues when he was under a lot of stress 4 years ago. But, it was pretty obvious considering what was happening in our lives that it was stress related. I've had my heart speed up and skip around which affected my breathing and I didn't think it was stress because it never happened at stressful times. It would happen on a nice, calm Sunday morning, or in the shower where I thought I was relaxed. But, looking back on what was going on in my life, I'm pretty sure it was anxiety. I hope you get some answers!!
I did a hill run this morning. 3 miles in 32:10. I'm still impressed with my speed because last time I did that hill my overall time was closer to 12 min miles. I'm not sure if I'm doing an actual "hill" workout. The hill closest to me goes on for several miles, so I can increase my distance each week, but should I be doing shorter stretches up hill but repeatedly? Here's how it goes...1/2 mile of flat, 1 mile uphill, 1 mile downhill, 1/2 mile of flat back to home. So, when I do four miles that will only be 1.5 miles uphill. It seems like so little uphill for the distance. Is that wrong? Should I find a different kind of hill?
