Google says....Does anyone know the full recovery time after donating?
I get to give blood whilst in work time when they come to the hospital. I’ve booked my slot for April 29th, but now realised the marathon i am running is on the 5th of May?
I usually feel fine after a few hours but obviously running 26 miles is a bit different. I’d rather not cancel as I struggle to get to the other locations with no childcare
It's best to wait 24 hours. Drink plenty of fluids during this rest period. When you do your first run after donation make it a short, easy one, just to see how you feel. Bear in mind you won't get your best performance within two or three weeks of donation.
