So, I think I need to do something about the beta blockers. I ran tonight - a hill session with a group of lovely Notts Women Runners - and while it was great to have their company I found myself struggling with a route I can normally manage easily. Hills I can run up with no problem made me breathless with exhaustion. I hate the thought of that suffocating panic coming back into my life, but I can't cope with feeling utterly shattered the whole time either.
Yes, the running would still be there if I carried on taking the medication regardless, but I think that it's probably not sensible to carry on with the beta blockers as I have a fairly low heart rate (40 - 50 bpm) and they're just making me feel very well.
And running is too important in my life to let go.
I think I may have just made a decision.
