Subject: Bleep Test with Arthritis
I've been a rheumatoid arthritis sufferer for several years and have it under control with medication etc.
Unfortunately my employer is introducing a bleep test (shuttle run fitness test) as a condition of employment, which requires running between two set distanecs so your constantly changing direction.
I've tried to search the internet to see if this strain will do harm to my ankle joints, some sites state running is good for you but others state it's hard on your joints, I guess I need to speak to my GP.
But I just wondered if any one on this site had any experiance with this type of exercise?
