Just entered my 1st half marathon (Great North Run) -excited but nervous as I do suffer from sore knees which really ache when i get to about 10K.

However, I am getting cold after cold -every 2/3 weeks i am coming down with a major cold and flu symptoms. Not just runny nose -its on my chest and I struggle to breathe -hot and dizzy -feels like flu.

Ive recently lost 5 stone in weight and have neve "felt so good" -which is really ironic as ive never felt so ill. I eat really well and healthy -take lots of added vitamins -wrap up for the weather when im out running (early mornings mostly) and i do think i look after myself. Because of my sore knees im not running far -only about 5K 3 times a week and a 10K weekends for now -and im resting in between.I really want to build my mileage up but every time im ill its knocking me back.


Advice please. This is really getting me down.

Add zinc to your supplements and maybe take a week off to rest properly.
