My running partner was diagnosed on Friday with HYPOthyroidism. She is now on medication for the condition and we hope and pray that the medication will regulate this and send it into remission and that it will not be a chronic on going condition that she has to be medicated for the rest of her life. I am so grateful that it was easily diagnosed and is easily treated and hope that she feels better very, very soon!
I used to be an “early to bed early to rise” kind of person but the last year or so that’s not been the case, especially the last few months. I seem to need more and more rest than I did in the past in order to function normally and even then I haven’t been “functioning normally” as of late 😦 but that’s a whole other post!
The inability to drag myself out of bed at an early hour is one thing that so greatly sabotaged my training schedule for the last marathon.
Anywho… on this 3-miles 3 times a week + weights thing that I’m doing now I’ve figured out that instead of Monday, Wednesday, Friday I can do Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and only have to get up early one morning– Tuesday. And even at that, if I run tonight, I won’t have to get up early tomorrow morning. Sounds pretty lazy but it gets the job done.
Last week went well. I stuck to it all week and dropped 2.2 lbs. GOOD JOB!
Challenges this week: 2, The first being a luncheon date on Wednesday at a local tea room. Unfortunately, their online menu is rather vague, it only says “salads”. Well, “salads” can mean a broad range of things. I thought about taking my own salad but think that that would be just a little too odd. I’ll just hope there is something “friendly” on the menu. If not, I’ll just forgo and eat later. The second challenge will be a wedding on Saturday. Actually, the wedding won’t be the challenge, the reception will be. Hopefully, they’ll have bottled water maybe some fruit and we won’t hang around too long.
My running partner and I are running a 5K Saturday morning that I am so excited about 🙂 It’s a charity inaugural event and for a good cause. That will be my 3 miles for Saturday and who knows, maybe we’ll do an additional 7 through the city after that. It’s about time for a nice run through the city
Today is the Boston Marathon and I’m hoping to keep up with is online. Coverage starts about right now and I’m hoping to be able to keep up with it online but who knows… the Internet connection at the office is a little less that reliable 😦
