    Hi all, im keen to find out if anyone has had any negative (or positive) experiences when endurance training whilst taking statins. Im an experienced runner, half way through the Mike Foote 20wk programme, and no longer suffer from ADS but have just started to take statins (hereditary high-cholesterol).. and things are getting tough – might be the volume, or might be in my mind, but I am paranoid about the statins! cheers

    Hi Mike!

    Congratulations to your progress in training!
    Muscle pain and feeling tired, are quite common side effects of statins. I would recommend talking to your doc about that. Maybe there is another solution to your cardiovascular risk.
