Blog changes

Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

And tomorrow I run...

This picture is a perfect example of the quote below. Although many, many people have put this many miles on their treadmill, I am excited enough about it to take a picture. I've been planning this for since December when it started getting close! My husband helped me get it to 1,000 miles but I've done plenty of 20 milers to do my part.

and accomplishment."

I'm back up and moving. I have been for about two weeks. It's taken me nearly this long to figure out what I can do and what I want to do with myself. My hip barely hurts at all any more! About 10 days ago, I started a workout program that also includes stretching. At first some of the stretches were uncomfortable, immediately after stretching the pain and range of motion in my hip joint was incredibly better! On February 13th, I started my one mile and three pull-ups a day streak again! Yahoo!! I am hoping to be in shape, OK, that's not true, I'm not "hoping". I expect to be in shape enough to run Big Horn 100 in June through a carefully planned running schedule and lots of cross training. I will be qualifying for Hardrock 100's lottery this year. If I don't complete Big Horn, I can finish Grand Teton or the Bear. And tomorrow, I begin running! It will only be for a minute or two at a time but I will begin!

Enough about me. For the next while, I will be trying to do more Addison's related posts. If you've got Addison's and you're not part of my forum, you may want to check it out. There's lots of knowledge, experience and support for those with Addison's, hypothyroid or undiagnosed. CHECK IT OUT!
