Running on Prednisone

I am on a steroid called Prednisone to help clear up some ear pain.  I've taken this before and it peps me up and makes me a bit jumpy, so I figured my run this morning would be a breeze.

I laced up and put my HRM on, and noticed that my resting heart rate was quite elevated this morning.  DUH!  There's a reason I'm peppy and jumpy!

So, although this morning's run felt good - it was a struggle to keep my heart rate down to where it should be on a long run.  Luckily it was my step back week and I only had a 5 miler this morning.

No music this morning...details about that in my next post.
