Oh no - get well soon BoD - make you you stay hydrated if you can.
Don't feel guilty - it's only one day. As long as the tv doesn't babysit every day you're doing the right thing! I'm being a rubbish wife if it makes you feel any better - sat at home all cosy LOL.
Take it easy - hope you're right as rain very, very soon - best to get these things out of the way now not in March or April
It may well be a short-lived bug, BoD... think there's some going round. One of our group on this morning's session suddenly went into violent vomitting. She was really embarassed and said it just came out of nowhere (the things people will do to get out of a threshold session..)
Anyway, you're probably going to feel a bit wiped out by tomorrow, so play it by ear. I'm posting next week's training - we're HALF WAY! Week 8 but we can discuss how to rearrange if you end up being taken down by the dreaded bug for longer....
This is pretty true to the sub 4.30 schedule - I've switched the 200m reps to a time-based session as Craig doesn't have track access and it's easier to do these on time. (I like this session by the way - it always seems to go really quick). And I've sneaked an extra mile in on Thursday's run! The long run on Sunday, I've suggested he does on a fairly level, even surface with a slight pick-up to race pace over the last three miles. Enjoy! I'll be in Crystal Palace park tomorrow, running a workshop as best I can in the ice and snow Hope I manage to stay on my feet!
BoDuke, I really hope you feel great again in the next few days. Eat as you feel and if you don't feel like eating don't eat and sip on water or if been very bad a re-hydartion solution. One of my kids have been sick since Wednesday and 2 days ago moved from bed to sofa and cbeebies has been the saving grace!

Ruth - a query please re the protein in your carb loading diet which i tried (successfully) recently - you mention above that you don't need protein on race day cos you have plenty from the previous days intake; if the previous 2 days have been on your carb loading diet which are the foods in those 2 days that provide the protein you need so you can skip this on the morning of the race ?? need to know so i don't skip these, thanks.

You have plenty of stores of protein and the carb loading diet which usually contains bread, pasta etc & dairy products (yoghurts, milk, rice pudding...) all actually have protein in them (although bread and pasta contains very small amounts compared to meat or dairy they still have some) so your carb loading diet is not as low in protein as you may think. After race, protein is good! Let me know if you still have any questions. Are you pleased with how your training is going so far?
Hi Craig, really glad you're feeling a bit better and good decision to take the day off. You've got 7 weeks training in the bag, remember, and this is the first long run you've missed so don't worry too much. Keep glugging down the fluids and resting and you'll be back on track soon.
A hot bath and a bit of gentle stretching can feel quite nice after you've been cooped up for a couple of days I always find.
Craig - so sorry to hear you are poorly, take it easy, hope you feel better today.
mcs - see you have manflu - take care too!
I only managed two 4 mile runs last week and no LSR as I have been away for the weekend. I have a bit of a cold but did 6 slow miles this morning and it was okay!
Bo had to watch a few episodes of Tracey Beaker with my youngest she is ten nearly 11 she watches everyone on the iplayer if she misses them. Used to be a great Fireman Sam fan but I see its been updated now........."everybody knows his bright red van........" lost it here streaming with cold in my lovely posh new office.
Oscarr you are right on the muscle thing my right hammy is enjoying the rest it is always aching.......usually when training is happening. Thinks a day or two off then maybe get the bike out and a swim before I get the trainers on properly again. Feel like a wet lettuce. Serves me right for boasting about wellman vitamins!!
Have a better week Craig!!
Hope you feel better soon Craig - sounds nasty.
and I just spent the last hour catching up with the last 2 weeks of chat on here after a 2 week holiday...spent a week skiing which I think has made my legs a bit stronger...though maybe all in my head but 12 miler yesterday felt surprisingly ok. Sore left ankle today though so I'm currently sat with feet up covered in a bag of frozen peas...hoping it's ok.
Oh and I had a sports massage last week for the first time which was...interesting. The physio also recommended a roller to stretch muscles so may give it a go - saw someone earlier mention them.
Sam - re yoga - I have a yoga DVD on the way from amazon so will give it a go later this week...haven't done yoga since Uni (which was 12 yrs ago).
Anyway...get well soon Craig, and you too mcs.
Hope you're on the mend Craig - and you too mcs. I guess at least illness has more of a limited timespan than do injuries...
Good work on the yoga DVD, Louisa - remember to start conservatively though! Nothing too full-on if it's been a while since you did it.
