Apparently, duct tape is the way forward. I trawled out to my fortnightly freezing session last week and the nurse was well giddy saying that research from America (it had to be!) has proved it to be better than any feezing method. All you have to do is put duct tap on the verucca and replace every week, giving it a quick pumice before you cover it again. It's supposed to completely clear it up in 8 weeks. Not sure how it works but it's worth giving it a go.
I'm a beginner that started running about 4 months ago. I've completed 1 10k so far and have another 10k race coming up in a fortnight but...I've started getting cramp in my left hip half way into my run. I usually end up on the floor trying to bend into a compromising position to stretch it out. Once it's gone I can usually carry on running but then I'm really stiff on that side the next day and it feels like my hip joint is grinding. I've heard that getting cramp can be a sign that there's not enough salt in a diet, is this true? I've got really clicky joints anyway so it might be a case of doubling my dose of cod liver oil! Any advice out there as I'm starting to get worried about my next race?
I'm a beginner and started running with a club about 2 months ago. I tend to eat a banana a few hours before I run but then I enjoy eating a full meal about an hour after my run...pasta or something. It's kind of like my 'prize' after my run. Most people at the club I've joined don't feel like eating so was beginning to feel like I was doing something wrong! Thanks for the info.
