Ive ran 17 marathons & most times around the 18 mile mark my legs feel heavy my calfs & hamstrings then become tight & a little numb. Im not out of breath during this time but my legs start to give way & slow me down. Thats what makes it so frustarting
How can i prevent this problem is there any suppliments i can take salt tablets ect
I think that the doctor may be thought that starting me on a dose to early may hsve caused further problems!
It does seem funny that he has done it this way i have to admit. With regards to him saying that i could have a heart attack if i run it. The fact is since finding out i have this ive done two 20 miles races & 2 half marathons. So what are the risks to me if ive been able to run that distance ok?
As i got a place through my running club the option to defer is not there. This is why we have stand by's who will step in if you can not run it. Ive waited almost 6 years to get in and this is why i want to run it!
Its this heart attack thing that he keeps going on about that is making me a bit nervous!
Yes ive been diagnosed for about 1 moth now. The doctor started me off on 25mcg for 2 weeks. Then 50mg now im about to start on 100 today.
Since being diagnosed despite my doctor insisting i do not do any running ie my half Marathons & he has also stated that under no circumstances should i run the London this year. I have continued to run & have completed two 20 mile runs & 2 half marathons. I have not told him ive been doing these.
My doctor keeps saying that i should not run the london Marathon as i could have a heart attack. Have you heard a doctor saying that before because of a thyroid? he siad that my levels are quite low 2.5 i think?
I would be grateful to hear from you. If anyone else would like to also chip in that would be great.
Hi everyone I have just been diagnosed with underactive thyroid. The doctor has put me on 25mcg for 2 weeks then it will upped to 50mcg. I do feel a bit tired but I have still been doing 10k runs but slow 9 min miles way off what I would normally do. So as to not push myself to much. I'm supposed to be doing the VLM this year. The doctor has advised me not to do it but I want to. I though I could jog a bit then walk a bit and so on. I feel I can manage this. What do people think should I still do it or not? I've waited 8 years to get in & can not defer it as its through my club. Should I not do it or do it any advice please
