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 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.
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 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 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.
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 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 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?
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 ***....
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 have trained for 1/2 marathon and have been running more than 20 miles a week. I decreased my daily caloric intake from 1600 to 1200 a day because I was not seeing any weight reduction, loss in body fat, or change in body measurments. I have been doing this for three weeks now, and still no weight loss. I don't mind working, but would like to know I will eventually get somewhere. Any advice would be appreciated.
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 f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar m tn I work out about 6 days a week. 3 days are lifting and 3 days are running. Now when it comes to running I run on Tues/Thurs around 6-7 miles, but on Sunday around 12-13 miles (getting ready for a marathon). Sorry for so much info I just want to make sure I am gettin the right info to you. Where I carry the body fat is in the stomach. I have a feeling this is also genetic and I will always have to deal with this but do I have to? Here are the question I have 1.
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).
Avatar f tn I had my thyroid removed in December but prior to that I was hypo and on Levoxyl 100 mcg. I'm currently back on the Levoxyl after the RAI and I've not had any weight problems. I'm a runner and before the surgery my tsh was always around 2.5 and I've always been very thin. I run several days a week and eat a reasonably healthy diet. I lost several pounds during my "sick" period, aka, the 6 weeks of hypo hell followed by the RAI.
Avatar m tn I have being training for several running races for 5 months. Before going into a preparation for a half marathon training, I went to the cardiologist to do a check up, as I know my BP always was borderline to be considered high. I did Echo, Stress tests and 24h BP measurements. Echo and stress went all right, but BP was slightly high, my mean systolic pressure was 133 and mean diastolic was 83, with the maximum during the test being 148 an 100.
Avatar m tn The best method to increase your EF is aerobic exercise to strengthen heart muscles. Losing weight will reduce the heart's workload and help recover to a nomal EF. I had a low EF below 29% several years ago due to the heart pumping against the high resistance of constricted blood vessels (ACE inhibitor and beta blocker medication) to dilate vessels...better blood flow and less work for the heart. Curently my heart returned to normal size and EF is normal at 59%.

Also we have to remember that med help has over a 100 different forums for most people a advertisment for a sleep aid would not be a problem. There have been a few advertisements that I have alerted med help to and they have done everything they can to block them on our forum.
