FLOORED BY ANEMIA

Even Healthy Athletes Can Become Anemic


I guess I should have read the signs last week, tiredness, light headedness, dizzy spells, headaches,shortness of breath and heavy leaden legs. Somehow I pulled out a couple of good sessions but the tiredness and dizzy periods increased, by Wed the day of the final in the series of the Harrock Hill races arrived, but I didn't really care I just did not feel right, in the end I went out for a run on my own, I ended up running better than I thought but when I got home my ears started ringing, it was then I knew I had anemia again [ I seem to get it every year around summer time!
So its back to the iron tablets again and hopefully I'll be back at full strength to tackle my next challenge of three 10 k races with a target of 35 mins something in the Natterjack seaside 10k in Oct.

Have you ever tried Floridex? It's easier on my stomach than iron tablets.

Thanks, thats what they recommended down at the health shop, one of the reasons I stopped taking iron tablets was they upset my stomach, cheers!

That was quick. You were running well a short time ago too. Hope the iron supplement does the trick.
