    Red Blood Cell Count??

    Is it normal to have higher then normal red blood cell count? My Physician says it is probably due to the amount training. Does this make sense? He did not give me the numbers but said it is a little above normal. I usually run 15-18 miles a week, cycle 40-50 and swim 2 1/2 to 3 miles per week.

    Only if you're doping. Exercise usually will reduce your count if you train hard enough. Anyway, for a guy who is training like you, which isn't a whole ton, it's probably just your normal red blood count. And those vary from person to person for the most part.
