Finished the craptastic run on Sunday (22 turned 19) and then had a light 5 mile treadmill run on Monday. Monday night/Tuesday Morning (2:00 am) woke up with 102 fever. Sick Tuesday and Wednesday. Worked Thursday but am at home now with more throwing up : (
So my question is.... Do I pull out of the marathon? Tomorrow is the last day to transfer my payment until next year. I think I could pull off a short run Saturday and then treadmill runs next week. I leave Friday the 18th to drive to Virginia Beach and run on Sunday the 20th. I have trained really hard for 10 weeks. I started off with a real strong base and long runs at 10 miles. I have had two 20 milers. I know I will finish and am looking forward to the time with my mom and getting to see my brother. However, my body is going to be completely wiped and I will do good to get in 15-20 miles between now and then. Suggestions?
