I had my fitness assessment at the gym, yesterday. I learned a bunch of things about myself. Some rather positive... Some on the disturbing end. For example, I have 27lbs of fat on me. Although that's within the normal range, that just kinda weirds me out... Can't help but feel as though I've been dipped in lard. However, I have 62lbs of lean mass. I... uh... Guess that's good?
Then there was the truly depressing stuff. I've become painfully aware of the fact that I cannot for the life of me bend over to touch my toes. It feels as though the tendons in my legs are going to snap and shoot out the back of my knees. That, and apparently, my oxygen intake is in the "lowest of the low" range (33 ml/kg/min, average is 45 ml/kg/min). I'll try not to despair about my poor cardiovascular health, and blame it on the doxorubicin.
I just find it funny that I'd have poor cardio, when to this day I can do an hour on an exercise bike and only minimally want to die.
Come onnnn, less than three months!
