I managed to suffer food poisioning on a recent trip to Poland; spent the entire night with it coming out both ends and my head spinning around like the Exorcist. It's taking me ages to recover; tried a run tonight and only managed 2.5miles before desperately feeling hungry. 2.5 weeks out from the marathon and I am in rag order... 26.2miles should be fun then!

 

Have you tried using rehydration sachets to get your salt balance back under control? Food poisoning like that will throw all your electrolytes/salts out of balance and is going to take a while to get back in order. Your kidneys will be doing there best to maintain balance but a little boost from your diet may well help speed things up.

I successfully completed the Chesterfield Half Marathon in 1hr 56, not quick but happy to get round under 2 hours given the lack of training.

 

Injury seems sorted, so back to full-on training.

I've completed my first full weeks training in over 16 weeks, over the pigging moon.

Monday 8 miles, yoga and spin
Tuesday double spin
Wednesday spin
Thursday spin
Friday rest
Saturday double spin
Sunday 11.5 miles

Made up after so many false starts with injuries.

Today's run was my longest run since the half marathon end of may this year.

Should be okay for the 1/2 marathon in Warrington next Sunday now.

Everything crossed.

 

 

Good luck, may mate Stephen is doing this one having done the GNR and Chesterfield Half in the last two weeks then rounding off September with the Robin Hood Half in Nottingham - 4 in 4 weeks...

Nearly hit by a car last night on way home. Inches in it. Made it home with shaky legs. Back on it this morning though

Not a nice feeling is it. Stay safe.

Been a bit lax in the last few weeks; this working away lark is playing havoc, but next week I'm in a hotel with a decent, if small, gym so I will aim to get at least three sessions in.

I use dioralyte in my training schedule already but haven't had any since my food poisoning. I actually went out running on Wed evening and managed to blast 5 miles in about 37mins on a very hilly route and felt very good at the end. So I think I am roughly back in sync after hovering up a load of food over the last few days. I guess we'll see up in Kielder but thanks for the suggestion.

Played badminton last and lost every game. My serve had gone to pot and I was up against a lot of the good match players. Bit demoralising having them run me round the court then bounce the shuttle off my head. If this continues we will be having words.

 

On the plus side I am all psyched up for my 2nd ever park run tomorrow. Assuming I arrive on time and don't start several minutes after everyone else I am hoping for a PB.

Second park run completed and three minutes quicker than last week. Still a lot of work to do and I will never be a natural runner but happy enough to still be alive at the finish line so all positive.
