Bear with me for a minute here cause things are about to get real. This is what it looks like when you're trying damn hard to figure out wtf is going on with your body and why you have zero exercise tolerance. My team of doctors think we're on the right track with some sort of crash between my thyroid, adrenal system and B vitamin and ferritin levels, but it's important not to play Whack-a-mole with your health, so I'm digging deep. I don't just want to just throw another supplement into the mix to see what happens. I want to get to the root cause and address it head on.
So I'm in the throws of it all right now; the yuck, the strain, the wondering, the worry, all of it. But, I also believe that in the end the best is yet to come. Better health, stronger training, faster racing. I believe that if I honor my body and really commit to listening to whatever it tells me it needs, that what lies ahead is better than where I am, and where I've been. So in that way- I appreciate this disaster and it's labyrinth of complexity. This is an opportunity, not an obligation, and I will be better off because of it.
You mentioned Hoshimotos.....this sounds very similar to what I went through leading up to my Celiac diagnosis. Good luck, and I hope you and your team work it out quickly. Keep on moving forward ---->

@iruntons I'm sure we'll figure this out! I say we because it's time to switch roles a bit. For me to hold your back and support you all the way the same way you have done with me for the past 3 years! We'll conquer this climb! 😘

A setback is just a setup for something greater. You got this coach! ❤️

@randyreitenauer thank you. I have been grain free for 8 months, but as we know gluten is everywhere. Even strict diet restrictions aren't a problem for me at all as long as I feel good. We'll see where this testing takes me.
Hoping you get the unanswered answered asap! Chin up and you will come out stronger on the other end. Thinking of you.

i've been feeling the exact same lately, like my body just can't tolerate any aerobic exercise, struggling to run even a mile when i was doing 5-8 easily. i can't figure out wtf is wrong and it's driving me crazy! can't wait to read your blog...
@adiehemp definitely worth checking all the same things, thyroid, B12, adrenals and iron levels. I highly recommend seeing a functional wellness physician to help you navigate it all since "normal" is not the same as Functional. Be Well.
