I can remove myself from FL Half Ironman by April 1 and get $75 of my almost-$300 fee back. I'll make that decision based on how I feel after surgery and whether I need radiation.
On that note, I've been pretty tired but I'm pushing through it. I see the surgeon on 2.16 to schedule my thyroidectomy. Since we last talked, here's where my training's gone.
- Succesfully returned to training
- Successfully integrated weight/strength training back into my week
- Work out no fewer than 3 times per week for no less than 1 hour per session
The following week I did two weight sessions (one for one hour, one for 30 minutes) and 2 short bike rides.
This week I've done a one-hour weight session, a short bike ride, 1 2,55-mile run, and a 1500-yd swim.
Increase bike and run distances.
Further examine diet.
That's what I have now.
Interestingly, since I have been testing my blood glucose regularly, returning to eating more whole foods and less dining out, and working out more . . . . my weight is still at an all-time high. I had thought I lost five pounds, but it came back.
