I didn't think that I overdid it at the zoo as I felt good energy-wise last night but obviously my lungs didn't agree as this morning at physio, my oxygen saturation levels went crashing down.
Argh!! It was low on Wed too but I don't think as bad. However, I wasn't checking as often so I may have been without realizing it.
My saturation was down to 86% after my 'warm up' on the treadmill. I checked to see if I was okay to increase the speed and realized that I not only could I not increase it, I had to reduce the intensity. The frustrating part about it is that I didn't feel short of breath or was coughing or any of those symptoms one is suppose to have. I mean on one hand, it is good that I wasn't winded but on the other hand, I clearly have no idea when my oxygen levels are low which is a bit concerning.
This weekend is going to be a 'lay low and hope my lungs feel better by Monday' type weekend. On the positive side, here are some adorable animals.
