I'm Glad We Talked

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.

  4. My reading muscles are very toned! :D

    I have a question. Do runners get arthritis more often or less often? Or running has nothing to do it it?

    1. I bet they are! ;)

      Arthritis wise - I'm lazy so I'll just put a link here and ask you to exercise your reading muscles by reading the link. Sounds good? ;)

    2. Always happy to read, and happy to learn there's no link between running and gout. :D

      This bit caught my attention: "As the foot strikes the ground, the forces borne by the bones and joints of the leg can reach six times the body’s weight."

      Wow. I've just gained new respect for the human leg! o_0

    3. That gout comment made me smile. Zaini and Raimie made fun of me whenever I eat crabs and prawns because of 1 doctor insistence that I have gout and pooh-pooh my explanation about me and my running instead of blaming on my food intake.

      She told me that the pain I was having was similar to gout and she insisted that I had taken seafood earlier. Like she knew better what I ate and I didn't. Grrrr....

      And by the way, I double-checked and no, I don't have gout.

  8. You know London Marathon?
    A lot of people run in that marathon, but even more people take part for charities. They don;t run for themselves, they run for others lah.
    So touching.

    You find a sponsor lah and can also do a good deed.

    1. Standard Chartered KL Marathon in June will also have a "Run for cause" event.

      It's great for runners to enjoy a run and at the same time doing it for a cause. :)
