that's what my GP told me when I met her yesterday evening. Haven't been visiting her clinic in ages because well... I prefer another doctor who is not on my company's panel and who is more clued-in to runners ailments because he had a few patients who runs.
Anyway, am proud to say I haven't had *touch wood* any aches or pains or running related in injuries for the past two months to warrant a need to see a doctor! :)
So, I went to see her because I can't always go visit the other GP since he is my husband's panel doctor not mine. Can't always use hubby's entitlement when I have mine, right?
I went there to stock up on my glucosamine which I am currently taking for all the abuse I subject my knees to. The arrays of them at the drugstore/sports/health related stores scares me into making a decision on which brand to buy so I am always more comfortable getting them from the clinic.
We discussed about my knees and of course that lead us to running. I think we spent almost half an hour talking about running! And boy did she made me happy. She told me that I definitely looked more toned, compared to the last time I saw her! *grin*
She said she always wanted to run again (she was an athlete, she said) and I ended up giving her the URLs of the few blogs that updates on all running/walking/cycling events and promised her that I'll give her a call if there's any interesting events she might be interested in joining.
She was glad to talk to me and get excited to be active and I was glad to talk to someone about running.
