Bye-bye, anaemia.

Last week, I had a blood test and got the result to show that my low red blood cell problem is over.

Red blood cell 337 →391(376-516)
Hamoglobin 10.7→12.6 (11.2-15.2)
Hematcrit 32.6→37.7 (34.3-45.2)
Serum iron 40→62(50-170)
Ferritin 17→43.4(5-157)

The criteria are a bit different from the last time though, since I applied the women's ones.

To be honest, I didn't do much for recovery, I just took iron tabs, but only time to time and didn't run much. I was expecting to get more iron tabs from the doctor but understandingly he didn't give me prescription any more. Dissapointed...

Anyway, I have no excuse not to run anymore. Let's get back to the normal training programme.

I'm glad you have the anaemia sorted. All the best with your future training.

Thank you Ewen, I'm not 100% fit yet, but definitely making progress. Through this problem, I learned a lot about the importance of nutrition.
