Thanks for that advice i can see what you mean. My sister has always been a bit of a "faddy" eater but now has been supposedly diagnosed as having a wheat allergy. I hadn't really taken in the implications of this until she came to stay recently and basically she doesn't eat. Tonights was a bit of meat with peas, no carbs whatsoever. Its given her an excuse to do some Atkins like eating regime.
Ok sorry to hijack this thread but my tuppenys worth for Shirl is that i too was told i'd have to take Iron tabs for the rest of my life. At the time i was a student and i know its a cliche but at the time i couldn't afford to eat, literally, i was eating bowls of cereal for dinner or plates of carrots and other veg fried in a sauce as it was cheap.
ive managed to stabilise things myself by paying more careful attention to my diet now i eat quite a high amount of red meat, more than the recommended amounts i imagine and quite a lot of dark beer (what an excuse!) and its been stable for a couple of years now. I guess the success of this depends if you're veggie for moral reasons or for the supposed health benefits though.
I can say from my own experience theres zero benefits in it health wise!!! (don't all gang up on me at this point, i know many people swear that its a healthier lifestyle - all im saying is that maybe it isn't healthier for everyone)
Im my experience you should try and be as flexible as poss with your training schedule as there will always be varous events,work, family stuff, injuries etc that will coincide with training no matter how much you try and limit them. If you can, then just move the long run to a different day just for that one run - it doesn't have to be on a sunday despite what the training programmes tell you. Youve plenty time to schedule in your long runs before London! Its better to look at a training schedule as a guide rather than a bible.
It appears to have graduated beyond spots on my tonsils. The tonsils are so damaged and pitted with holes in them its now solid lumps trapped within the tonsils. At the risk of making you feel thoroughly sick they sometimes dislodge of their own accord and other times i have to squeeze them out. They are truely disgusting.
