Pleased to have found this thread as just like some of the contributors to this thread I could not find anything elsewhere on this subject.
At the age of 65 I have been diagnosed with CKD which is a pain but being more positive I suppose it could be something far worse.
So given that what I would like to ask everyone is if you too have CKD do you still manage to maintain some sort of running programme but perhaps marathons are no longer on your list of runs.
I also cycle and have always kept myself fit so I am loathe to become a couch potato but if I have to do that to lower my creatinine readings to a safe level then I will have no other choice but to do that.
If you can offer me any advice or have other information that will help me I would appreciate it.
Well firstly apologies for not giving you feedback sooner. So all these months on after having various tests to determine why I have acid reflux,the last of them being a 24 hour Ph Acid test, I have been told by the person who carried out this test but it needs to be confirmed by my consultant t hat I have an hernia. If he does confirm that then it will only confirm to me what I knew myself literally years ago.
As for running there has been very little of that because of the pain I was getting during and after a run so I have been cycling more to try and compensate. But as we all know nothing can compensate for running.
I am now just hoping that if I do have an hernia it can be surgically operated on, and I am aware that this can also throw up problems, but if it gets me back running I will take that chance, and that after it I can get back out pounding those streets.
If I can then those dark and cold Winter nights with have to come will not seem as dismal given I love to be out running whilst others are sitting indoors by a warm fire.
Take the football element out of it, and the fans' reaction.
If someone in my organisation had been found guilty of rape, they would most likely have lost their job on the grounds of bringing the organisation into disrepute, and also for not being available for work for 5 years (based on the initial sentence).
If the job in question came up as a vacancy just when he was released from prison, and he applied on equal terms with anyone else who chose to apply, his criminal record would count against him, and he'd be unlikely to be appointed over someone with similar qualifications/experience who had no criminal record.
So yes, in theory you pay your dues and get a second chance, but in reality, a serious conviction will affect your employability for the rest of your life.
Nessie your spot on there as I know someone that got into an altercation with a work colleague and a fight ensued. Although two people took part in this fight only one lost their job and that person was dismissed at the age of 57 sevens years ago and he has never been able to get a job since.
You need to be whiter than white and young to stand any chance of getting any job these days as Ched Evans is finding out.
Cal sorry to read your still feeling ill and you mathschick.
KateF Thanks Kate. Guess who found it ( smiles smugly )
bikemyre I bet you felt great after knowing that you had battled the elements whilst others were sheltering.
PSC That sounds like a good run to me.
E mmy Thanks Emmy its been found.
Gobi Hope you had a good bike ride.
Well luck was with me today as it just poured down all morning. But just before I set off on my run the rain got less torrential and shortly stopped.
Had another one leg compression stocking run ( found the other after my run ) so I took it really easy again.
I ran for 32 mins again and later mapped it out on Mapmyrun and the distance is 2.68 miles so not far and not very fast but that will do me.
Just near the end of the run my leg that had the compression stocking on gave me a calf muscle twinge so I will need to be careful to make sure I don't damage it on my next run on Saturday. I will probably even run a shorter route to make sure I don't damage it.
I will also do a bit calf strengthening on the stairs tomorrow as well.
