Servere stomach issues halted what would have been a rather pleasant long run today. I still have seven miles to do. My question is, would I benefit doing the rest of the run today?

I was planning on a sedate off road recovery run in the morning as I'm checking part of the course for our race.

It won't be as beneficial as doing the whole distance in one go, but it will be more beneficial than not doing the extra 7 miles at all :-)

I'm in the other camp on this: if you got at all dehydrated, you're not going to improve things by going out again. The quality of your training to date strongly suggests you could can the '7' today. :)

I'm with Swittle on this. Rest up, rehydrate and try something gentle next time out.

eL Bee!
Doing the extra 7 miles at an really easy pace will certainly be beneficial.
i ran all my best races when I was putting in a second easy run of that kind of length

It's all academic now as my stomach issues don't appear to have resolved. In fact, it's worse :-(

Thanks for the advices anyway. X
