Away for a few days skiing, trying to convince myself of the value of the cross training (for a spring marathon) as going to struggle to get any running time in and lost a week before xmas due to illness.
This week meant to do intervals (done), 7M easy, threshold (hoping to fit this in somewhere), 3M easy and a 10km race (will be able to do on sunday).
Can I somewhat 'guilt-free' miss the two easy sessions? I ski around 4 hours a day at an intermediate level.
I get fevers and feel sick for quite significant periods after running if I dont do my nutrition properly before/during/after the run. Recent example was this weekend, did 13 miles which isn't abnormally long for me, but I didn't eat breakfast before. Sickness I think due to acids created when running (and food absorbs them) and fevers are low blood sugar.
