    Oh, well it's good you got that checked. I'm no doctor anyway.

    Happy walking, I guess!

    According to random Google searches, it seems a bit low.

    Adult males: 75-175 micrograms/dL
    Adult females: 65-165 micrograms/dL
    Children: 50-120 micrograms/dL
    Newborns: 100-250 micrograms/dL.
    A low count of red blood cells could also make someone dizzy.

    Wait, that might have been red blood cell count.

    I think you'd be dead if it were red blood cells...
    The ranges for a normal RBC count (expressed in million red cells per microliter {uL} of blood) are:

    Women: 4.2 to 5.4 million/uL
    Men: 4.7 to 6.1 million/uL
    Children: 4.6 to 4.8 million/uL

    The paper says "hematocrit" and it says 44, and that it should be no less than 35. I really have no idea what "hematocrit" is but mine is okay, or something.

    Ahhh... then it must be a percentage. It seems to be a broad measurement of a few things...

It is considered an integral part of a person's complete blood count results, along with hemoglobin concentration, white blood cell count, and platelet count.

    3.6 miles today, so at least I'm getting back to normal. I've been listening to Pride and Prejudice and have really enjoyed it so far. As encouragement I'll only listen to it when I walk.

    I love walking. I also live on the campus of the largest university in the state of Maryland, so this is a good thing.

    A week or so ago, I went on a hike with my friend in the woods. I was not aware, however, that she was the type to find following established trails "too restrictive", so we went bushwhacking against my better judgement and got completely lost. By the time we found the trail and wandered along until we came across a signpost with a map, it was a good three hours after we started! We had only planned to do a short recreational hike, but after a few other mishaps it turned out to be well over ten miles long. All in all, a great day, but one I'd rather not go through again. I'm planning the next hike.
