Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight running marathon


Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I am 11 weeks 1 day & am an avid runner. I ran my first marathon a month before I got pregnant. My plan is to continue running throughout my pregnancy as long as I can,(which includes running a half-marathon). I'm just curious to know if there have been any other moms out there that can share their stories of running while pregnant. My doctor says it should be fine & that I just need to listen to my body when it starts to hurt.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any secrets to losing weight with hypothyroid? Have been diagnosed now for a yr and 1/2. Have joined a gym and been eating more veg. and fruit but still can't lose any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
Avatar f tn I was training for a half marathon when I found out I was pregnant about a month ago. I gave up all training because the first few weeks I had major fatigue and cramps. Now I am feeling better and the race is Saturday. I was debating on jog/walking it. I've been reading mixed opinions on running that distance during the first trimester. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I have high blood pressure for last 10 years and I am taking Atenlol 50mg for last 6 years. I started running marathons in 2008 and since then I have completed 4 marathons with an average time of 3:40:00. I consulted my doctor and he said its good idea for my health to keep this routine, although Atenlol might be a hindrance in exercise. Personally, I feel quite relaxed after each training run and even marathons.
Avatar f tn I would like to drop my weight down to 50 or 55. Is that an unhealthy weight? And this weight tracker thing says I have to eat around 1200 calories in every day, isn't that a little bit too little? Or is that right? And a side note, I have an injury that doesn't allow me to do any high impact sport, including running, any helpful tips?
2108469 tn?1334054530 ¿ Can running , or gym whatever , help to relief the symptoms of hypothyroidism ?
Avatar n tn I have plans of running a marathon (26.2 miles) in Sept and have been taking these meds since March. My endo said she thinks that they probably won't work for me because I had such high levels and a goiter. She is suggesting that I do the radioactive iodine if the levels don't come down after several months of the meds. She also told me she wasn't sure if I would be able to run the marathon. I am still having knee pain and muscle weakness in my legs.
Avatar n tn I am wanting to try a half marathon in a few weeks. I am fit, 36 years old. I can only run every 2-3 days due to my knee. I ran 9 miles last week. I have SVT’s. I had an echo which was normal (checking for a heart murmur) before I started running about 5 years ago). This year, I had a normal ekg and holtier monitor. Anyway, I want to try one and then maybe stick to 5k’s. I was wondering about the heart effects of running 13.1 miles very hard.
663562 tn?1291131883 ) nunu--I wish I liked running too, I saw what it did for DH (weight wise as well as mood) and I REALLY do wish I could do it. I just don't have it in me, but I could walk for days..
Avatar f tn For losing weight the most effective way is to sprint for about 30seconds then jog for 30seconds and keep this going for about half an hour
Avatar n tn I am an avid runner and am now TRYING to prepare for a marathon. While training last week I experienced severe stabbing pain underneath my right ribs, not on my side under my ribs but in my upper abs region. When I slowed the treadmill down and tried to catch my breath, the pain became more intense and the only way I was able to maintain breathing was with small breaths.
Avatar f tn Anyway, I just started running outdoors and indoors to train for a half marathon next year. I love it! But I seem to have gained weight and I don't know why. My legs are definitely more muscular and very firm, but I don't know HOW much weight that could possibly be. I am usually around 141-142 lbs with proper diet and exercise, and now I can't get below 147. What's the deal? I don't know if I'm really eating THAT much differently since I've been running.
1237757 tn?1323143119 ve started running on as much cushy grass as I can find. Seems to be working well, went running this morning along the beach it was great fun. Out training on windtrainers tonight then out with some friends. Have also changed my diet to a portion controlled lite n easy program. More for the easy than the lite, but hey won't be upset losing some kg's. Lost 3 kg already which I'm wrapped about. Been training for 3 years and have lost very little weight.
Avatar f tn Have you thought of keeping a food journal, if even for a couple of weeks, to make sure your getting enough calories and the right kinds of foods? You could also measure yourself to see if your losing inches instead of weight. Don't forget even if you know what your doing your body sometimes takes a little longer to figure it out. Don't stop what your doing.
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar m tn My doctor has declared that both my retina are now OK and I can resume my normal activities including running again. however he did not permit me to run marathon and did not provide explanation/answer as when I can or ever can run marathon again. I am a leisure marathon runner , jogging at slow pace to cover a full marathon distance which took me 6.5 hours to finish marathon distance. My question is can I jog marathon or jog long distance without jeopardizing my retina ? Thanks.
Avatar n tn m happy to be running at all ( after 6 months of absolutely no activity and 6 months of gradual increased activity )-- but I need more specifics for the future. I am a 45 year old long distance runner ( 20 year marathon history), excellent weight, diet and fitness level with a family hx (aunt and grandmother) of death by aneurysm. I would love to resume marathon distances. I am currently limiting myself to 10- 15 mile runs, but this is based on nothing.
Avatar f tn Last year I ran a lot to do the Chicago marathon, then after slacked off of the running, still went to the gym a lot. Any suggestions? This is driving me nuts.
Avatar n tn I am a 36 year old male. For about two years I have been running. I have mostly just ran 5k's but havine been training for a marathon in April. I am running about 30-37 miles a week, with a long run of about 2 hours on Saturdays. My heart rate sometimes gets into the 90% range of my MHR. Before I started running, on a regular docotr visit about 6 years ago they found a heart murmur. I had a normal ekg and echo. They said not to worry about it. I also had a normal stress test back then.
Avatar f tn 5 km, Saturday and Sunday I run between 15 to 25km and Friday it is my day off (need to do the grocery shopping). I am running a marathon on May 24 and would like to do better than last year. Last year I did it in 4h (first marathon).
1844885 tn?1330536610 Hey, So i'm sooo close to signing up for my first marathon (I've ran two different half-marathons) but am worried that I won't perform or train like I want. For one, my breathing makes it frustrating to feel good about my running. I'm in good shape, but running is not my strong point. I can sprint and middle distance, but once I do 4+ miles I get so discouraged at my slow ***....
