Recovery after pneumonia

Posted: 16/01/2015 at 15:31

I had pneumonia just under two years ago.  I actually tried to run Brighton marathon with it (didn't know I had it at that stage.)

It took me approx 5 weeks until I felt up to running again and probably a couple of months before I felt I was back to where I was before.  It wasn't the easy runs that were the issue it was the faster stuff that took a while to come back.

As RicF says take it very easy for a few weeks and build up slowly.

I called them yesterday and i got the impression they hadn't sent them out, cutting it a bit fine but she did say it'll be here today (it wasn't) or Monday.  I'm a bit worried if it doesn't show up Monday I'll be traipsing up town on Saturday to collect my race pack.

Oh look, another post by td43 asking pretty much the same question that they asked about 20 times before.  Do you bother to look at any of the replies to your repetitve posts?

I think the changes are great.  That last section when you almost get to the stadium and then turn away for a mile is soul destroying, I like the fact the first incline has gone as well.  I don't see how the changes can mean anything but a faster course, looking forward to giving it a bash again.

Ring them up, explain you are going away on holiday for a couple of weeks and need to get it sorted before you go away.  If you're lucky they'll confirm your entry there and then for you...

Just an idea

It doesn't matter what anyone says, you'll be back on here asking the same question in a few weeks time

There is only one real hill of any significance at mile 22/23.  It's a fairly sharp one but not particularly long.  I found the course to be pretty much flat other than that.

If you have a GFA time does that guarantee an entry or is it still not definate?
