Things you want to say but can't

Dear car manufacturers. Autonomous driving vehicles. Are you really sure? My automatic lights and wipers have no idea what to do half the time, no way do I think we can have driverless cars. How about concentrating more on screwing together the ones you make now a bit better, that'll do fine.

No problem, hope you resolve it.

Actually that was rubbish advice since you already do pilates and roller! I definitely think the hr guided training could help, not sure about the headaches and tiredness, possibly your immune system kicking in after you've stressed yourself? Slowing down and decreasing mileage until that stops then slowly build up. It maybe that your ME is still there in the background, for some it seems it is a lifelong condition.

Pilates would be my top tip, strengthening your core has to be worthwhile plus get yourself a foam roller, I have a Trigger Point one (I liked it because it had a solid core to prevent distortion but mainly as it was orange). Regular rollering I find really helps but pilates is definately good for everyone.

Have you tried running with a hrm and keeping to a lowish max? You may just be pushing a bit too hard without realising. By slowing down and building up carefully you may find some improvement. Perhaps try initially not to exceed 120bpm, you might need to walk now and then to keep to that but over time you'll probably be running most or all. If the headaches and tiredness improve then perhaps up it to 130 and so on. Good luck!

Car Accident, neck, back and rib pain marathon on Sunday!

Can you defer? Your health is more important but get yourself checked out first then see how you feel on Saturday. Only you will know what you can/can't do. But in reality, I think you already know or you wouldn't be asking. Hope there are no lasting problems and you feel better soon.

...but why?

well.... long story i signed up back in december then had to move because i had a placement for three months in a new city where i knew noone. i suffer from anxiety so couldnt really get out to run when it was dark when i got back from commuting. said i wasnt going to do it and then found out my friend had signed up cause i persuaded her when i signed up ( didnt know this at the time) and now i think i should probably do it with her and so have decided to re do it as now im in my normal village and can run freely without worry, plus its light!

Sounds like you are doing this for the wrong reason. Yes, you don't want to let your friend down but assuming they have been training then either 1 she will run off and you won't see her again until you finish or 2 she'll feel obliged to stick with you and you'll spoil all the training she has done. Why don't you explain you can't do it but go along and support her by cheering her on and taking pictures? If you do do it you may injure yourself but most likely just end up in a lot of discomfort for a few days and is it really worth it? Do right by yourself, start training properly and aim for a great time later in the year. You'll enjoy it more and it'll get you back into exercising regularly.

Low pulse, high(ish) blood pressure?

Worth trying Rab but really I think you are delaying the inevitable. Get your appointment asap, you can try eliminating stuff after as your GP will probably want you to monitor it at home for a week or two first. Mine averaged 140/85 with spikes like yours around 160/100. As I have a family history of heart attacks and strokes and with there being negligible room for lifestyle improvement I went on to 2.5mg of Ramipril. Been on it for a couple of years nearly and at my last check-up, my home testing averaged about 125/75 iirc. My doc is happy with that but I have my next check-up in June so will see how it goes. Seriously don't worry about the medication, there are all sorts should one not suit you but the alternative could be a permanent solution...

Rab - go see your GP. That bp is too high. I'm on medication (lowest amount) and had no problems at all.

Marathon training and adrenal fatigue

Posted: 24/03/2016 at 10:47

Sounds like you've bitten off more than, well, you know. Defer, rest up and build up properly for a well prepared attempt next year. I think the adrenal fatigue may just be a red herring and you have pushed yourself too far too soon.
