I have to admit, swimming and cycling in 106 degree temperatures is more enjoyable than running in 106 degree temperatures. Currently, I’m running 3 times a week, cycling 3-4 times a week and swimming 3 times a week. On most days I’m getting in 2-3 hours a day of cardio. My days are sucked up into a variety of things from school to work to all the work outs, but I feel stronger. Finally.
I feel strong even when I’m tired and while I’d like to give full credit to the cardio activity, I think a lot of it has to do with the new medicine I’m taking called Armour, for hypothyroidism. And wouldn’t you know it, just when I’m starting to see the benefits I go to get a refill of my prescription and the pharmacy is out. Why? Because the manufacturer has gone out of business and no other pharmacy makes Armour. I spent about 2-3 hours one day last week driving around town until I finally found a pharmacy that had enough in stock to get me through the next month. Joy. Joy.
Also, I haven’t forgotten that I owe a post about that 8-hour preventive medical physical examination. I got the results back on Tuesday and have been fascinated with the analysis. I have so much to share with all of you, Internet People. I’m hoping I’ll have that together for you by then end of the weekend. I also hope to be reporting on that new Garmin. I haven’t had a chance to take her out of the box – I hope she hasn’t suffocated.
