I have completely messed up and booked a week's scuba diving holiday 3 weeks before my marathon date
I know i will be tappering my by milage then but would still want to get some treadmill runs in during the week. I was thinking of aiming for three runs during the week, and think perhaps early morning before the days diving would be best. I am also thinking that I should dive with Nitrox all week to keep my nitrogen levels down.
Does anyone have any experience of diving and running ? Any advice would be greatfully received. Thank you
Pethidine and Valium would be my drugs of choice in such a difficult situation.
Stick to a depth of 12 feet or less.
Depth and death are linked in this diving game.
I wouldn't imagine diving that far out from race day would make much difference to be honest - 3 weeks would be long enough for any affects to wear off. If you're concerned and if your diving with a computer, just err on the side of caution on allowed combined dive times and depths.
And a few runs on the beach should be a nice change!
Ideal training to beat this guys record.
lol, don't think i willl wear the suit Keir!
Thanks for your thoughts Rafiki, I will be diving with a computer so will be extra careful, plus runs on the beach do indeed sound inviting !
