Apparently if you give blood it takes around 4 weeks before your red cell count is back to where it should be. However the body overshoots a bit so in the 5th week your red count is higher than normal. I read that somewhere, it could be nonsense but I tried it before a half marathon once and I ran a PB :wink: , could have been placebo though :lol:

I did find out that cycling a fast 5 miles to the blood donor centre doesn't boost your blood donating ability, I almost fainted at the half pint mark :oops: I did get surrounded by nurses for an hour or so so I guess there was some benefit. :wink:
