Hi everyone, just posting to ask,if anyone has any tips. I have been failing to maintain any exercise regime due to knee injury and exhaustion. I have just had bloods done and been given a 3 month course of iron tablets. What is good to aim for if I am going to keep up a 3x per week exercise regime?

bump I'm no expert but if you are anaemic then the oxygen carrying capacity of your blood is reduced so it may be best not to do anything too strenuous until the anaemia is dealt with?

Thanks for your reply. I am not managing to do much at all, Suzanne!

Just wondering if anyone else had experience they could share, really.
