Blimey, someone really asked this question.

No, no, no! Do not do it.

Have a beer …. or two. But do not run the day before…at all. I mean really don’t run. It will do you absolutely no good at all as your body takes about 2 weeks to gain the physical benefit from exercise. Worse than that 2 week delay you just won’t recover by the next day, even if you are 14.

Sorted. That question answered.
