Running with hypothyroidism.

Is there anyone out there that has dealt with hypothyroidism? I used to be able to run a 9 minute mile. I've ran 4 half marathons and 5k's. Now I'm lucky if I can run a half mile without getting winded.

I'm seeing an endocrinologist and still getting my Rx right. It's just so frustrating!

    Rachel Hi, I had my thyroid removed and now as a consequence have hypothyroidism. I know how frustrating read morethis can be! Once your levels are stable you will find it much easier, it is just about getting energy levels back to their maximum.

    I find I know myself and how my energy levels are better than the doctors so I tend to control my own dosage and increase and decrease when needed.

    Martin Penrice Sounds like you're having hard time of things. Could you not just do some short intervals ?
