Much to my surprise, I was able to do the run 1 minute/walk 2 minutes scheme without feeling especially challenged. I did need to keep my hands in my pockets the whole time to keep my hands warm, and I was having some cold sensitivity tingling in my fingers towards the end, but it didn't get too bad. I just got some silk liners in the mail so I'll try wearing those under my running gloves. (I do have running mittens too, but I have looked everywhere and haven't found them yet. They may still be in a winter clothing box, which I'm still working on unpacking.)
I won't make tomorrow's training run because we have theater tickets that evening, but I should be able to make Sunday's. My last chemo treatment is next week, and I'll probably pause my C25K participation at least while I have the bottle with me.
I feel like my side effects this round weren't nearly as bad as usual; I didn't feel this good right after the 25% cut in chemo. My appetite was the best it's ever been after chemo; a couple of the days where I normally eat very little after chemo, I had a good appetite. Not sure if that's a cumulative lessening of the impact of the chemo due to the dosage reduction or what, but I'll take it.
Overall I'm feeling pretty good about everything, and really looking forward to being done with FOLFOX after next week.
