Pes anserinus bursitis

Posted: 20/12/2016 at 19:37

I've had it on a long distance cycling trip.

Trip ended and I just eased back on the cycling for a bit and it sorted itself.

Massage of the offending tight muscles also helped - I seem to recall that there are 3 muscles that insert there that may need attention

Maintaining weight without losing it!

if you are losing weight at your current level of activity, you need to eat more!

i wouldn't suggest cutting back on the running....

bigger portions and more snacks.

not rocket science!

you can easily get used to upping calories....I eat all day and I'm very active.

it balances out nicely!

Quorn is like eating insoles

I eat a lot....of everything

I love food and eat things I like.

If I don't enjoy it I don't eat it.

If I'm hungry I eat whatever I fancy. If I'm not hungry I don't think about food.

Never binge, but don't deprive myselfeither.

Like to cook from scratch, and love healthy whole foods....but also have a penchant for red wine, coffee, and have a very sweet tooth, and love chocolate, honey, syrup, ice cream, home made cake/biscuits/ ice cream etc etc


High blood pressure, should I still run London?

Posted: 04/04/2014 at 18:19

I remember recording a blood pressure of 160/100 a few years ago at some point between my second and third marathons.....I was aged 34

I was reasonably stressed at the time, and my blood pressure was high every time it was checked.

My BP these days is consistently around 120/75 these days, so I don't know what that was all about
