I have possibly got a ear infection (self diagnosed) and have an appointment to see company doctor tomorrow morning.
Is this any reason not to run today?
Also any idea what is likely to have caused this.
I eat a healthy diet, Wholemeal cereal, bread & pasta, Brown rice, lots of veg and fruit, low fat dairy, seeds & nuts to snack on, only use olive or hemp oil in diet, lean meats and fish. I feel I eat enough through out the day, 6 smaller meals, eat when hungry. Take Eskimo3 fish oil capsules (3 per day) and Joint Ace(glucosamine & Chondriton, 2 x 1000mg per day).
I have increased the amount of cross training (bike and weights) I have been doing recently although I have not really increased my food intake as I did not feel any hungryier (is that even a word?) than normal.
Could this be the problem? even though I don't feel I need any more food, not loosing or gaining weight.
I ran last Friday and for the first time in a long time I did not enjoy the run and found I struggled a little. On the day I put it down to the heat and humidity but then on Saturday I started to do a 30 min stationary bike, 90 min back, shoulder & arms, 30 minute bike workout and again struggled especially lifting and the weights are what I normally lift with no problem. Didn't do the last 30 min bike and have taken the weekend off and did SFA. Again the weather was pretty warm and humid.
I am itching to run today but looking for qualified advice.
I would also like to ask about taking a multi vit. Most of what I have looked at seem to all provide (or so they say) 100% of almost everything. As I eat healthy foods I am not sure if I am deficient in anything. I am not sure if active peeps need more of the vitamins than what is recommended on the lables on vit packs though I suspect yes.
Is there such a thing a a low dose multi vit as I have read that "OD ing" on certain vitamins is as bad as not getting enough.
Your advice would be appreciated.
Regards & Happy Running,
