I'm doing Kenley 10k this Sunday - originally scheduled for a couple of weeks ago, but postponed due to the icy weather. I'd planned a hard race as part of my buildup towards a PB attempt at Hastings half marathon. But.. I had an appointment to give blood on Monday, so when the race was postponed I decided to use it as a training run and not push for a good time.
But.. I had a good run the other day and am going to test out some faster running on my run today, to see how I feel. Have been a bit tired going up hills, but otherwise fine generally - and the race is flat. I'm in a good spell of training - I'm tempted to push it on Sunday and see how it goes.
Has anyone experience of racing after giving blood? Trawling through old threads, the general consensus has been to take it easy in training and play it by ear. I should be sensible... should I?
