Introducing First Timer Craig (aka BoDuke)
Oh no - get well soon BoD - make you you stay hydrated if you can.
Don't feel guilty - it's only one day. As long as the tv doesn't babysit every day you're doing the right thing! I'm being a rubbish wife if it makes you feel any better - sat at home all cosy LOL.
Take it easy - hope you're right as rain very, very soon - best to get these things out of the way now not in March or April
It may well be a short-lived bug, BoD... think there's some going round. One of our group on this morning's session suddenly went into violent vomitting. She was really embarassed and said it just came out of nowhere (the things people will do to get out of a threshold session..)
Anyway, you're probably going to feel a bit wiped out by tomorrow, so play it by ear. I'm posting next week's training - we're HALF WAY! Week 8 but we can discuss how to rearrange if you end up being taken down by the dreaded bug for longer....
This is pretty true to the sub 4.30 schedule - I've switched the 200m reps to a time-based session as Craig doesn't have track access and it's easier to do these on time. (I like this session by the way - it always seems to go really quick). And I've sneaked an extra mile in on Thursday's run! The long run on Sunday, I've suggested he does on a fairly level, even surface with a slight pick-up to race pace over the last three miles. Enjoy! I'll be in Crystal Palace park tomorrow, running a workshop as best I can in the ice and snow Hope I manage to stay on my feet!
BoDuke, I really hope you feel great again in the next few days. Eat as you feel and if you don't feel like eating don't eat and sip on water or if been very bad a re-hydartion solution. One of my kids have been sick since Wednesday and 2 days ago moved from bed to sofa and cbeebies has been the saving grace!

Ruth - a query please re the protein in your carb loading diet which i tried (successfully) recently - you mention above that you don't need protein on race day cos you have plenty from the previous days intake; if the previous 2 days have been on your carb loading diet which are the foods in those 2 days that provide the protein you need so you can skip this on the morning of the race ?? need to know so i don't skip these, thanks.

You have plenty of stores of protein and the carb loading diet which usually contains bread, pasta etc & dairy products (yoghurts, milk, rice pudding...) all actually have protein in them (although bread and pasta contains very small amounts compared to meat or dairy they still have some) so your carb loading diet is not as low in protein as you may think. After race, protein is good! Let me know if you still have any questions. Are you pleased with how your training is going so far?
