2010 Socks - Pair 3

Halfway done with my goal of 6 pairs of socks knit this year!  I think I might have to raise that goal!

I'm calling these "Snow Day Mystery socks".  The color is Snow Day from Sunshine Yarns.  The pattern was a mystery in that I didn't know what the finished sock would look like when I started.  It was a pattern I was helping to test knit.  I'm very happy with the results.  Despite the yarn name, I think they are perfect for Spring!

Thyroid/Gluten Interaction?

I received an interesting article from a friend today discussing potential interactions between thyroid disease and gluten intolerance.  I haven't had a chance to read all the references yet, but I will check them out.  However, in my experience, I've noticed that I feel much better when I am not eating gluten.  I relapsed to eating gluten as normal over the past few weeks, and I currently feel terrible.  So, if you have thyroid disease and are told your levels are normal, going gluten free might be worth a try.

Training Totals - March 2010

March Totals
  • Bike - 207.53 miles
  • Run - 33.76 miles
More than last month, but not as much as I was hoping on the run.  Still, I made a lot of good progress biking - my longest ride was 54 miles!
