I mentioned a few posts ago that I was going to the doctor to get some stuff checked out. Most of my tests came back very healthy. However, apparently I am in early menopause.
I’m only 46, and average menopause age is 51. This may explain why my running has been crap the last three months, which is how long it’s been since my last period (which was an abbreviated one). I wasn’t expecting this news, so I’ve got a ton of research I want to do. But I do believe low estrogen isn’t great for running.
I’m going to take hormones to help with the symptoms, and fingers crossed things start getting better. If the night sweats stop, that’s got to be an improvement!
