HRR I remember doing a track sesh the day after a donation. It was an excellent illustration of the different energy sources. I started off at my usual pace for the first few seconds and then everyone sped away from me (relative to my usual peers I really did seem to be going backwards!).
the most spectacular moment was the day I donated blood then went out to celebrate my birthday with some friends - nice big curry om nom, one glass of wine and was getting going on the second - felt hot and woozy - headed for the ladies but never made it - there was a loud thud as I passed out and hit the deck!
Martin enjoy the pacing - don't be surprised if you end up finishing on your tod as all those who've been following you scamper ahead to the finish line when it hoves into view! And then you'll be thanked not only by them but by the folk ten-20 secs behind who were doggedly keeping you in sight!
Susan - wishing you fun times and a bit more recovery :/
KS hope barf harf goes well - does seem pretty flat (from spectating...). Martin I haven't done a half since the club Xmas Pud run over a year ago!
Still feeling dire - not quite unwell enough to go off work though so being very careful and checking everything twice. Is it some rare after-effect of a long hard bout of exercise (from what I read it could be) or did I catch something from the adorable five year old marshal I high-fived near the end...? Leaving stuff on my plate, and no details but tum NOT happy.
