I had to cut short on Wednesday and yesterday also.
Wednesday I had a Dr appt. I got the results of my blood test. I have another thing to had to my list of crap: HYPOTHYROIDISM. One more pill to add to my cocktail. This one is a pain in the butt. I have to take it when I get up on an empty stomach and I cannot eat or drink for 1 hour after I took it. So this means setting the alarm 30 min earlier on school days and take the pill and try to go back to sleep..yeah right. On long run or race days...I cannot think of a solution so I have decided to skip the dose on those days. This pill is natural T3, T4, Nature-Throid not Synthroid so that is good but it will increase my metabolism and that helps with weight loss. I don't need to loose more weight. I have to take the pill because this condition affects the level of my triglycerides and I don't want it to be high of course. My cholesterol is low and all my other numbers are good. My weight is low for my height and my % body fat is good (18.2 today). My triglycerides levels are not ideal and same for my T3-T4 and the good Dr said if my T3-T4 are better the triglycerides will be better also. In one month we will do another test to see if the numbers are better.
Saturday I cut short because of a double soccer program in the family. That is more important than the mileage of a turtle so I did 3 miles only. I went at 1 pm and it was over 90 and very windy. This was a hard 3 miles.
This morning I had my last long run; 8 miles alone, no partner today. It went OK. It took a couple of miles to get a in a good place.
This week: TAPER. Blah. I will try to rest as much as I can. I will be tired for this Half Marathon because of the concert the night before so I will do my best this week to rest and get more sleep.
I made shirts for the kids to wear at the concert on Saturday. Jonathan who is the lucky one who will meet Keith (Urban) said he needed a new Keith shirt because Keith has already seen the one he has. RIGHT...
I used pictures I took myself and I added a text to it.
Will picked first because he does not get to go meet him and he picked the first one. I am looking forward to go see KU with the kids!
Game 3 of the soccer season yesterday and Will scored his first goal!
He is not the most aggressive kid on the field, he likes to run but he does not really GO for the ball that much. Scoring a goal is a big deal. I jumped out of my chair like this was the World Cup. I must have looked like a crazy person but I don't care!!!!
Here are some soccer pictures starting with my new favorite picture.

Until then, be good.
