Happy Veterans Day!

Thank you to all the service people out there. My husband is a combat veteran; we're going out to eat today.

I had a doctor appointment first thing this morning. My husband drove to town with me, as we had an insurance appointment next. Then he went to buy some groceries and I then ran home! 11 miles in 2.15.

My doctor was very pleased with me. As she has not seen me in a year, she was very happy with the 24 lbs I have lost on their scales. My BP was 94/64- no wonder I always get faint whenever I have blood drawn. My oxygen level was 99%, HR was 56. The doc agreed with all the blood work I want to have done-cholesterol, Vitamin D, potassium, magnesium, and the T3 & T4 for the hypothyroidism. She also remarked my levothyroxine dose may need to be changed with my weight loss-something I had not considered. She didn't know what to do about the calf cramping but finding out what my magnesium and potassium levels are would be a good start. (And the calf just throbbed on my run today-I guess mr Knot didn't like getting discussed!)

I was very pleased with my time, which included power walking up some steep hills. I'm wondering what I could do in a flat-like 1/2 marathon course!
