Im doing the London marathon and training is going well. Upto 12 mile runs on a sunday as of last week. I started in December to get an extra month of training in due to knee ACL reconstruction 9 months ago.
Thing is I live amongst the hills and theres nowhere flat at all to run near me and I've a bloody stupid bug thats going round, nose is like a tap. Ive bought some running gloves wih the intention of doing at least 10 miles tommorow but don't know if its best to rest instead and not risk slipping/damaging the knee and the stupid bug I have had since Wednesday.
I could maybe do a long run Monday by getting a lift to where I usually go running but drive there, the cars stuck in the snow at the moment.
Not sure what to do.
In a word .. noYou will do more damage if you are unwell by going out than not
Mark, relax. The bad weather/cold combo is a good reason to take some rehab time. Get back to 100% and start again then
Listen to the wise words above. Most of us don't do everything we want or need on the day and still manage to get round in or near the time we want. Relax. Rest can do you good
Absolutley agree with above posts, plenty of weeks left to train, just make sure you get back to it when the weather improves.
ok felt a bit better today cold wise so managed to do a very slow 2 hours 5 minutes treadmll run at the gym.
