Last week i did the robin hood half with a bad chest. It turned out i have chest infection. I eventually went to the dr on wednesday and been on strong amoxcillin since but my chest dont seem to be getting any better. I havent ran since sunday and kilo in 3 weeks. I am starting to panic about the lack of training at mo and will i be better by then. my chest actually hurts just doing house work today so a run is out of the question. does anyone know if defer sysytem for it? We still be going london as got hotel booked and activites on the saturday as a family.
will do on monday
been on site and says i can transfer but runners has pay £7 or just loose my money and see how i feel on the day.
I'm probably not running this too, also missed Royal Parks Half yesterday. Now then Lisa, DO NOT RUN WITH A CHEST INFECTION. I did, not realising how ill I was. I ended up bedridden for a week, two different lots of antibs, blue fingernails, massive temps the lot. And I later discovered that, although not common, it is more than possible for it to transfer to heart and KILL YOU. not worth it.
I think that doing the kilomathon with less than ideal training is safer than running with a chest infection.
Get thee to bed with medicine and make your partner wait on you hand and foot. You're not getting better because you're not letting your body and the antibiotics do their thing.
Call in sick, stay in bed and you'll be better in a week and can spend two weeks gradually building your running again. If you really want to do the kilomathon (I don't know how far that is so pardon the ignorance - am guessing 26.2K?) then do it as a training run, go gently and maybe consider run/walk (you could take one minute walk break every mile/2K/whatever works). If you're not better, don't do it!
