Re the bursitis. I'm fairly sure, through the gym I work at and my girlfriends family I know 5 Dr's. A couple had a look and agree, My girlfriend has a first class degree in physio and I also have a pretty decent physio. It's quite a specific part of my knee and if I tape my cap away from it it is a little better. I have had more physio since my last post and I have had more good days than bad. Still a drag trying to squat through it.
The mental side is the hardest for me. My club is 30miles away and due to work/petrol prices I can usualy get there twice a week. The other 10-15 sessions are at my work (a health club) or a gym near me with a platform. I'm really lucky with the situation I have, in terms of being able to train. But I do 90% of my training by myself. To top it off every single person who sees me squatting in work seems to feel the need to tell me I'll be in a wheelchair by the time I'm 50. Or the fact I'm doing to much. Hopefully my lifting trip in a couple of weeks will fire me up.
Alexus- I'm fairly resistant to tapering outside of comps, but if thats what it takes I might end up doing it.
Thanks for the replys guys!
