Abscess on back

Just like to know if anybody else suffers from abscess on back after running long distance . The abscess has been Diagnosis as Staph aureus Folliculitis which is a bacteria that lives on the skin which enters your hair follicles after a break in your skin.. Been running for about 5 years started doing 10ks then half marathons then trail running and so so leading up to ultras which been doing for about 3 years from 50ks to 69miles am a fit person but after running the wall run this year couple of weeks after got hit down with this abscess very pain full but it seems my body can't fight this so got to go on antibiotics then after it clears up a few weeks later after I ran my next ultra they reappear and so on.having test now waiting for blood test next week.hope to be fit for my 100miler next week. Any body else suffers this thanks

Hi roger..when I said hammering past me I meant fast .sometimes the slower runners should let you past if u cant passed safely. I had 2 runners about 37miles up in the woods would not let me pass & I said can I come through please but they ignored me .but hey ho

Thanks kate.its surprising the nerves you will feel this week you feel your fitness is dropping because you are tapering but its all in the bag.all will be forgotten at the start line just go with the flow and enjoy the challenge in front of you.i think the best section is after 15miles.when you see the most of the wall + the check points & pit stops are well stocked.
One dayer for me..get round in one piece is the plan ..
