Cheer's Ultra Bookie. I am currently injured hence why I am carrying some extra weight.
With the Whey, Some mates who do Triathlons and rock climbing uses it, and they said that since they started there recovery times were super quick. Both of them were super healthy. They ate all the right stuff.
I have never really given it a second thought till now. I'm normally all mother nature, with fruits and berries and the like, but has you said I big issue is portion control and sweet tooth that I need to kick in the butt.
Hello. For years now I have just ran, ate, and ran. Still drink like a fish love a mars bar or maybe 4. While I loose a lot of weight, I get injured or rest after some big races. But now I'm also road cycling (dirty word I know on this forum) so am stepping up my game.
I have also because of injury I think cause of cycling put on weight. That and Christmas. But I was thinking of trying supplements and Whey Protein. I know gym junkies use it to control weight gain with out losing muscle mass, and while I would never skip a meal or substitute a shake for one (love the food to much) I was wondering if people had any recommendations on which Whey products were best on the market.
I want it for recovery but also extra protein. I'm doing a 40 mile round trip cycling to work, and then around 30-40 miles running. But am also wanting to loose some pounds. I tend to over eat is my issue, and have the whole thing of 'I've just cycled 20 miles and will be cycling 20 miles back so I can afford to have another sandwich etc) and I know protein can help repair and build muscle as well as keep you full for longer.
While I know this will be hard to describe and even harder for people to say what I have I thought I would give it a shot. I am currently back packing around NZ so can't afford a physio.
I have had trouble with my right glute before, but this pain is new. After I run, the next day or so, my hip bone feels bruised. If I stand with my leg apart and push my hip to the right side, I get a strange pain on my right hip bone and in the glutes. I have tried rolling a tennis ball in the area and doing all the possible stretches I know. It started after I got myself some new shoes, as my old trainners were causing tight calves.
The pain is not always there, just when I lean into it, or walk up stairs. It feels like my glute or top of the hamstring is tight and knotted but the sensation seems like it stems from my hip joint.
Back in the UK I was seeing a physio as my left Ham was not as long or stretched as my right, and my right side would offer get injured from over compensating for my tight left Hamstring.
I hope some one has some ideas of what this could be and how I can do a self fix.
