Hypothyroidism and exercise, a question.
Monday, December 10, 2018 8 comments
Ok Sparkfriends, I have a question. There are several of us at work that have hypothyroidism and/or Hashimotos, one being our school nurse. A comment was made that it takes "us" twice as long to recover from exercise. Also, that preventative car... Read more

Well, I'm a couple weeks into my gym membership and so far I love it! It's been really icy and cold here so it's great to be able to go inside. I've been doing lap swimming twice a week, using the treadmill (I call it the dreadmill.), and I've t... Read more

I volunteered at my running groups Thanksgiving Feast and Feathers 5k, 10k 1/2 marathon race. I started at 6 AM and was there for 2 hours. My feet were "frozen," but I love seeing the other runners out for such a great event. All the entrance fe... Read more

It seems like every year, when running season ends and the darkness increases, the same 5-10 lbs. find its way back onto my body. I eat clean, still exercise regularly, and watch the amount I eat. Yes, a little more snack size dark chocolate Kit... Read more

I completed a trail marathon yesterday. It was a perfect day, weather wise, temperature wise and peace of mind wise. I ran with one of my sole sisters and we had a great first 10k or so. Then, she had intense foot pain that got progressively wor... Read more

Yesterday, I completed my second 50k. This one was VERY hilly with Map My Run showing 1,200 foot inclines per loop. I did the marathon last year and had forgotten that many of the hills weren't only steep, but also at an angle. It is a very chal... Read more

I have a 50k in two weeks. I am still competitive, however I have learned to curb it. I have been running with two others quite regularly. Neither are as fast as I am, and I am not as fast. I have learned that I would much rather run with f... Read more

Well, I did it. I've messaged him several times. No major health issues on his side. He did remember my birthday, so I guess that says something. His answers are pretty straight forward without a lot of detail, but he's answered. I've answe... Read more

Yesterday I did my first Triathlon. I did a Half Ironman last winter, but it was inside. As challenging that was, this was so different. I swam 500m, rode 12 miles on the trails and ran 4 trail miles. Not exactly sprint distances, but it ... Read more

For Christmas my MIL gave us a 23 and Me DNA kit. I spit, sealed and sent it in. I was very interested in what I'd learn since I don't know/never met my biological father. When my results came back, I did learn that I am 100% European. Yes... Read more
