I’m running the Berlin marathon this Sunday and needless to say have spent months training, getting up stupid o’clock to do my long runs…however on Monday I woke up with a score throat, score neck, headache etc…..not at all what I was after 6 days out!
I sent myself off to the GP straight away who said I has a bit of tonsillitis. I have been given a 10 day course of antibiotics (Penicillin, phenoxymethylpenicillin) I told the GP I was running a marathon on Sunday & he said I ‘should’ be ok to run. I took Tues & Wednesday off work to rest up & I feel much better today & back at work and would say am about 85% recovered. I’m confident that come Sunday I should hopefully feel back to normal but will still be on my course of antibiotics.
Just wanted to hear from anyone who has ever run a marathon after just getting over anything like tonsillitis (strep throat) and was still on antibiotics at the time of running the marathon and what their experience was.
