Sorry to hear you caught the cold. Zicam is your friend!! Hey, did you guys get the Race Retreat?

UGH. That scares me! With incubation times for colds and viruses and people getting sick all around, I am petrified that something will happen to us right before we leave. DS has the sniffles and I just started sneezing so I think I'm going to GNC to buy a case of zinc and vitamin C. Even though we're still a month out, by the time one spreads it to the other and that one spreads it to the next one in the family...

I just caught something pretty horrendous too. I can't breathe through my nose so running hasn't been happening this week. I'm pretty much a pitiful mess on the couch. I guess its better to get this over with now than in a couple of weeks

RUNROOKIE We did get the race retreat.

PRmamiDEdos I had been taking airborne just about everyday and I think that helped me avoid getting this bug until now. I stopped taking it for about 2-3 weeks and then it got me. Last time I was at disney during christmas time I got so sick that they had to open the store after hours and go in and get me meds so ever since then I have loaded up on airborne and it has always worked unless I mess it up like I have now.

butiflfeet I feel you on the pitiful mess part. I thought I had a sinus infection last night. I was up for 2 hours straight with really bad pressure in my ears and teeth. Thank god I woke up and the pain was gone and replaced with a cough and runny nose.

Thanks everyone

Courtney

I have a question, im just not sure if it would be ok to do or not.

My work is having a blood drive on the 8th of January and I really wanted to donate since I know people that have needed many transfusions due to a multitude of reasons, I try to give back. I've never donated that close to a race but have never really suffered any setbacks from giving blood other than the occasional bruise they leave on the inside of my arm.

Does anyone know if that's safe to do that close to a race? Thanks!

My personal experience says not to give any measurable amount of blood within 4 weeks of a race. Maybe its because of the altitude here in Colorado, but I felt like it took weeks to not feel lightheaded and tired on long (> 12 miles) runs.

There have been a couple studies on this and the jury is out for the average runner. There is a definite loss in peak aerobic activity for the elite athlete, but most of us are not that person. You have either 4 or 5 days recovery after the donation. You should be ok. Though as a measure of caution, if the weather looks hot to you and you are running the marathon, I would consider not donating. I put it in terms of 'hot to you' so that it is your inner thermometer judging the potential for heat affecting your run.

Not sure if this was an answer, but I would not donate if me. [ADDED] I generally have no side effects from donating, but have never donated within 3-4 weeks of an A race.

Great. Thank you for that, I have never done a long run with giving blood before, so that's probably some good advice. They always have donations going on, so i will wait until I return, I figured it was just a convient place to do it since it's right at work!

Has anyone ever cut those midweek runs a little short?
I don't do the midweek long run. I think my longest midweek run is a 50 minute tempo... (So just under 6 miles for me.) i have an 18 month old that wouldn't be happy with sitting in a stroller for over an hour run. my spouse is in the military (so he works odd hours) he isn't home in time to watch our boy for me to run. And it is dark where we live very early. So I just don't have time for a midweek long run. And I am not stressing out about it! I just make sure to really commit to my weekend long run.

While not on the map in in any literature to date, there should be a cold sponge handup around mile 17 where we turn to enter WWoS. I base the point on the historic point in the race. However, the Mouse would probably not put a heavy litter handup just before WWoS, so I wonder if it will move around to the point where we leave WWoS.
Can someone either let me know what page that map is on or re-link it for me?

Thanks

Agreed. Certainly there is a performance factor, but I would caution anyone about giving blood that close. You are dropping your blood supply by a given percent and then taxing your system (depending on how hard you run). There are many non-elite runners who do not run fast times, but still stress their heart as much as the elites. Lower blood supply means the heart has to work that much harder to cover the oxygen needs. If you plan to coast through the race or wear a heart rate monitor to keep in a safe zone you should be fine. But otherwise I would not do it.

So I am just finishing my prerace illness too. I picked up the flu on Saturday (after my long run ), but it put me out of commission until today. The good news is that last time I had the flu before a big race I ran a PR. I guess the few days of rest did some good somehow.

I guess I should say Chiquita Bananas, The official banana of the Disney Marathon
