Thanks, Ruth - my main concern is that my radiation was 10 years ago and now they are so much more accurate and they can avoid the heart.  Also, my father had a massive heart attack at 64 and died.  However, after I thought about it more, there is nothing I would do differently.  I went with the information that was available at the time.  I still plan on running and working out because it's MORE dangerous to be sedentary! I'll bring it up when I see my oncologist.

HIIT on the treadmill, 20 minutes this morning followed by legs.

So many times, I've seen a big scary headline; been absolutely freaked out, and then when examining the 'fine print' found it not to be so black and white after all (or it is reputed all together by the next study). All you can do is follow the best practices at the time of your diagnosis (because, of course, first you have to be alive before you can worry about possible long term SEs of your treatments), and then take really good care of yourself to hopefully avoid them!

I'm off to work in the snow......sigh.....

A sad day today - we have a pet turtle dove who is 30 years old and isn't doing well, so we have an appointment at the avian vet for euthanasia today.  It's hard to lose him after all these years - we adopted him and his mate from the animal shelter 28 years ago.  She died several years ago, but he kept going.  He loved to coo first thing in the morning - it was always such a lovely sound to awaken to.  He hasn't cooed in weeks, and has been sinking down, so now's the time.  Hard to do after losing Sully the cat last month, but it's the right thing to do. 

Agreed with everyone who is long out of active treatment - we made the best decisions for ourselves that we could with the info we had on hand at that time.  And by continuing to exercise, we're continuing to make the best decisions we can for ourselves. 

50 minute treadmill run last night.  Today is a rest day, then we have a St. Pat's 5K tomorrow in Hagerstown near the cabin.  The forecast is cold rain with possible snow showers - I'm going to freeze my shamrocks off!

Latest on the dress saga - I'm keeping it!  My daughter doesn't mind that I am in the same color.  Yesterday I googled ettiquette on this, and there is a whole school of thought that says the mother of the bride should choose a color that matches the wedding party.  Plus, the photographer (my friend and my personal shopper who helped me pick out the dress!) says that there really aren't pictures where the MOB is with the bridesmaids.  Whew, dodged a bullet on that one, now on to appropriate undergarments.

Got a brisk walk in at lunch yesterday, but probably not today as a Senator is coming to tour our facility.  Did my arms last night, and a bit of classical stretch this morning.  Have a great St. Patty's Day everyone!

Mary, so sorry you and your husband are saying good bye to your lovely turtle dove. Pat, good to read all is settled with the dress.

Today is Red Nose Day where money is raised for a charity called Comic Relief. Went to gym for freestyle step and body balance wearing a red top and red-nose bobble headband and handed a £1 for the kitty my instructor Sue pass around.

Happy Friday!

Mary, so sorry about your turtle dove, 28 years is a long relationship.

Good luck with the 5K and I certainly hope you don't freeze your shamrocks off!

Pat, glad you could say yes to the dress.  Hope it went well w/visiting dignitary.

LB, Red Nose Day sounds like a fun way to raise money for a worthy cause.

Got out for a walk at noon, logged 4.5 km = 2.8 miles for the day.

Oh Mary, so sorry to hear about your turtle dove. It sounds like he has been a lovely companion.

Pat, glad the dress worked out. You will have to post a picture of it!

We had about 6 inches of wet, wet snow and really bad roads all over the region. (This is not exactly 'typical' weather, last year it was 50 degrees WARMER than today!) Shoveled and sculpted until I was rescued by a neighbor with his snowblower (DH is out of town), 45 minutes on the treadmill & 15 of Pilates Challenge.

NatsFan -  So sorry to hear that you've had a second pet loss in a month, and especially one that you've had such a long time.  I hope that you have some fun planned in your weekend to lift the heaviness of heart.

So glad it's Friday!  Decided that the end of the week fatigue was irrelevant and went out after dinner with DH for a 30 minute walk.  Had more energy when I returned than I did when I left.  Funny how that works!  Laughing
