Hi guys - I'm about 7 weeks into my training for the belfast marathon and am up to doing the 10mile run for my longest run of the week (with 3 other smaller days training)
I've woken up this morning with the left side of my face numb and a quick visit to the doctor tells me I have the condition Bells Palsy...
From research it can take between 3 weeks to 2 months to recover from this and get feeling back in my face etc. Was quite scary waking this mornig to find this. So if I stop training now then Im pretty much beat for the marathon as its on May 7th.
Doc says I should cease running as this would cause stress on my face etc - which I respect his advice.
Just wondering if anyone on here has ever come across this situation or has any advice or wise words to give.
All comments apprecated on this pretty grim day for me
