I didn't realise I had all these replies, sorry but a massive thank u to everyone for the advice. I did Manchester on Sunday and I'm listening to your advice resting till Sunday then a short run see how I feel. I will be tapering as do not to exhaust myself,Furthest I will go is 13 miles 2 weeks before which is 2 weeks after Manchester.
Fat Buddha how on earth did you manage with a week apart? That's some going...
I had to pull out of Chester last October due to Chest Infection. I had to make the decision that morning. I was absolutely devastated. It was however the right decision as I also suffer with asthma and that evening was very poorly. My Doctor said I would have ended up in hospital if I had ran. 7 chest infections in 10 months - lovely.
Getting a cold again lovely, hope nothing else!!!!
