Running a Marathon.
« on: September 10, 2007, 04:26:39 PM »
oki doke guys.  Im running a marathon. 
ummm....where to start.
My VL is at around 15000. CD4 stable (for about 3 years) at 350 ish.  This will be my 4th marathon since testing pos.  I havent done one for 2 years, and i am just starting running again in preparation - since entering.  I got about 35 weeks to prepare. I am a fairly experienced runner, and I already have worked out a training plan. 

I have 2 questions.  1 for this forum, and 1 for the Nutrition forum.

The one for the nutrition forum is fairly obvious, but for this one I would like to ask:
 I reckon I may have to start meds soon, will they interfere with my training?  if any other runners or sporty type people have got any tips for me, please feel free to comment.

I see no reason why treatment will interfere with your training, if anything you will feel more able because your body won't be dealing with an unsupressed viral infection.

Of course there is the delicate question of bowels..but this is not an inevitable inconvenience (+ there's loperimide).
