That's awesome! I didn't wait to heal and paid for it. Then I took the time to heal. Now I'm back and it's been good. I'm so glad you're taking the break!

I haven't seen the doctor since getting the results due to a long wait for an appointment. Got one for Tuesday, but they said on the phone they think it's an upper GI bleed due to the painkillers I am in and the long distance running, and will send me for more tests after I see the doctor.

Taking a break from training till I have asked the doctor whether or not I'm ok to carry in

I agree with Timothy!

You need to see a dr. and get healthy. Fighting thru this will only make things worse without proper care. I wouldn't even think about running a marathon until you have control of this issue. Have you seen a dr. about this? And if so, do you know why you're so low? My biggest concern would be why. I have been there and found out that I had bleeding ulcers that were contributing to my very low iron along with some bleedin issues I had with surgery. It took a few months to get to feeling stronger and able to run better again.

See your doctor fast!

This happened to me. I didn't realize I was bleeding and set out determined to run 8 miles in training for an ultra. I was taken to the hospital after collapsing. I rested during my hospital stay and ran a horrid 50k two days after I was released.
I'm sorry, but based on my expo wrench I strongly suggest getting better before you run again. I'm training for a marathon in May and it's going really well. But, I'm healthy again.

FYI - I'm running that same 50k this year. :)

Just found out I'm severely anaemic and have a low haemoglobin level, most likely due to the painkillers I'm on and the long distance running. I'm supposed to be running the marathon in less than 2 months but since my symptoms started i've been so fatigued i struggle to run more than 5k

Any tips?
Thanks :)
