Trying to Train Smarter, Not Just Harder

Considering going on a vacation near the end of August - was planning on a meet in PCB, but now maybe I will look further out from home. Feeling much better in the water now that the stupid statin is out of my system. Right shoulder still an issue, but strangely enough, not while I swim. Actually, I guess I should say, FORTUNATELY enough, not while I swim. Aching even now as I type.

No kids at the pool today - Sr. Champs was this past weekend, and the fast ones are tapering for Jr. & Sr Nats. Had a lane to myself, and no pace clock!

    Your doc put you on statins? Cholesterol too high? You might consider having your doc add/substitute in some T3 to the standard thyroid dose of synthroid. T3 burns off cholesterol.

    I take a combo of T3 (liothyronine) and synthroid. It works better for me than just T4. And it did lower my cholesterol, which was slightly elevated bc of being hypo.
