you'll bounce back mate, stomach bugs really take the stuffing out of you, HM's are ok, one can hold on to an extent, but FM's are something else,
so, if u can shuffle to the end of a FM badly cramped etc after as stomach bug, then ure made of tough stuff
good luck always
Cheers for that, I appreciate the encouragement. Feeling much better now and enjoyed a steady 14 today. Hope things are ok with you and maybe see you at Gloucester.
I have just checked the website and there is a document up. I have attached the link below.
The route and instructions appear to be the same as last year, pick your number up on the day. Don't worry about the lack of info though, the organisation is top class and runs like clockwork.
See you there.
Bit worried if I could do this, had bad cold virus and been out of action for 3 weeks! last run was the portsmouth marathon. di my first carido session yesterday, 10 mins row, 20 mins bike and 30 mins treadmill. was ok but concerned weather I should even attempt it. on the plus side is it's laps so could pull out after lap 1 or 2.
anyone else had 3 week break before?
Hi Paul I've just Done the Liverbird marathon after 6 weeks break not ideal and suffered in the last 4 miles.
Personally a think 3 weeks is fine and is nothing more than an extended taper, I would be more worried that you are over the virus, but all depends on what you're aiming for? if it's to just get round you should be OK, going for a time may be a little different, good luck which ever it is
Thanks for the advise woody. 6 weeks off! blimey. as you say it is kind of a taper without any running!!!
Hi Lilly, yeah I was at Jim's NYE and was rough by the end of the night. (nothing to do with beer either!). but feel so much better now and just have a sinus infection that is going now. did 10k tonight and did feel it a bit but longer run sat and bike ride sunday so should feel better then.
Was looking forward to the day and as Iv'e paid for the run i'm going to do it. as long as i'm sensible and not tyr for a PB. just get the miles is for Edinburgh in may.
Thanks for the advise
Muzza, sorry to here about your ribs mate. the ice was a problem wasn't it! took weeks to go around here. I had to do 20k on the treadmill when we had bad ice and that wasn't much fun. But Lilly how you did 18 Mile on the treadmill is something else! good on ya. I overheat on the treadmill as the aircon is crap in the gym.
Anyway look forward to seeing you then Lilly. I guess we will leave from Jims. I will force some fuel money in his pocket
Does anyone know if the organisers inform you of your number before the race. I know you collect your number on the day, just wanted to know if they tell you the number beforehand.
From the info I got, we just register on the day and get issued our race number then.
