>Racing>Phantom Pains during Taper
I'm running my first marathon on Sunday and I'm getting the oddest pains all over my body. Is this a common occurrence?
5K: 19:49 (4/13) 10K: 42:50 (12/12) HM: 1:32:47 (5/13) M: 3:39:29 (2/13)
Will Run For Bacon
Some of it is the body healing
Some of it is being bat shit crazy
Good luck with your race
I was convinced I was getting sick for about a week before my marathon. It didn't help that some family members exposed us to a stomach bug. I made myself crazy, thinking stuff like...."I'm achy--bet I'm getting sick. Is my stomach a little queasy? I must be sick. If I start puking now, will I have time to recover?"
I woke up feeling great on race day.
Check out this link, posted two days ago in another thread.
Funny stuff! And spot on.
And next time, I won't be persuaded to take a camping trip a week before a big race. Especially a trip where another family rides with us, because their 3 year old might start puking exactly halfway to our destination. And to make sure I know it's a legit sickness and not car sickness, her dad will puke all night the next night.
Next time, I will quietly hole up at home with my Lysol.
