Well, this is too late, but for future reference, there used to be a drug called deconamine that worked wonders for congestion. They don't make it anymore, but you can get the ingredients by taking two meds together-pseudoephedrine 60 mg ( usually 2-30mg tabs )and Chlorpheniramine 4 mg. Be careful you get just st those two meds without added Tylenol or anything else in there. It dries up congestion wonderfully for me -better than those wicked expensive ones, too.

Same shoes -- Brooks Adrenaline GTS. I was starting to feel some issue with my current shoes today on my 13.1 mile run, so the new shoes will come out on my short run on Tuesday.

Since running shoes are made of synthetic materials, they don't need breaking in per se. If you are just replacing your shoes with the same model, you should be good to go. If the new shoes are a different model / brand, then you should give yourself a few runs to make sure the new style works for your foot. If it doesn't, no amount of breaking in will fix that.

My own opinion here...I am not a doc, YMMV, and I take no responsibility for following or not following these opinions. If the cold is a head cold, you can continue to run. If it is below the neck, stop all exercise until you are well. Pretty much all the head cold meds have the same or similar ingredients. Chest colds usually have guaifensen to loosen the phlegm.

Shoes: personally I change out my shoes at 300-350 miles, being a Clydesdale. I run around 30 miles per week, give or take, with a slow/low mileage week every third week or so. So in 3 weeks, about 75-90 miles. That is one-fourth the life of the shoe for me. My opinion is to not run races in brand new shoes, nor in shoes approaching retirement. If you've put 50-100 miles on a new pair, that would be about perfect IMHO. At that point, they still have a long way left to go, AND, you know that they don't hurt your when you run.

All my own opinion...YMMV. To CMA, do not take medical advice from me...see your doc instead.

Hello all,

1) What cold meds have worked best while in training for a HM? I'm scheduled to run 13 miles tomorrow and currently taking Tylenol cold med. No idea how well this will work for me on a long run. I've found on my shorter training runs this week that I've had to slow down due to the congestion.

2) My HM is on April 3 -- is it too late to start breaking in a new pair of running shoes. My thought is to break them out on my short training run (3 miles) next Tuesday which is just under 3 weeks from the HM. Thoughts?

Thanks!
