I caught it :(
Yes, I had it really badly.
The whole of my neck and face swelled so much my chin literally disappeared. I was ill for about 10 days and my salivary glands effectively stopped working for about 2 weeks afterwards too and I had to sip water every few minutes to keep my mouth moist.
Hopefully yours won't be too bad but be prepared for what could be quite a long layoff. Terrible timing I know!
Hope you feel better soon.
Ahhh MK that is rubbish! I know it doesnt help at the moment but you have some time to decide if you need to defer or not.
Hope you feel better soon!
You might be lucky and not have to anyway, but you know there will be many other years of running and many many other marathons! You could always carry your fitness through to an autumn one for example.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you anyway
