Change of gears

My life has quickly changed from running mode to school mode. Our board exam crept up on me like a little quiet mouse and will be taking over my life for the next couple months. Running will be ramped down to a few 3-4 milers a week to keep a base. Maybe a longer run on the weekends 5-10 miles. I'm continuing to lift..however I might try to go to higher reps and less weights. My arms are the size of texas and are starting to scare me.

I also got some bloodwork done and found out I have over-active thyroid?!?! WHAT??? This thing I was always jealous of other people having...I suddenly have and don't want it! Anyone else looking for an overactive thyroid? I have one...free to a good home...must pick up. (No worries..I got the anesthesia part..you just need a knife).
Make it go away...I don't want to get it zapped with radiation. Maybe thats the reason my neck grew an inch? Maybe I'm growing a HUGE goiter...ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!

The same thing happened to my best friend during her last year of law school. She lost a ton of weight from it but made it through the zapping part. You'll be OK!

This also can be thyroid inflammation [thyroiditis] transient condition.[However the thyroid may not desrease in size after that} You may need RAI scan to determine that{low RAI uptake] if uptake is high [40% and above]and TSI antibodies are elevated grave's disease is indicated

Get that over-active thyroid to take the board exam for you while you kick back and cool your heels.
