Giving Blood before the racing season begins?

Hi there

There is a blood drive coming to my college around the start of April. I've always given blood but it's usually in the winter when the season is over.


 I have about 2 weeks or so before the first race of the season if I give blood in April. Would this be ample time for my body to recover?


I made the mistake last year of giving blood 5 days before a charity 10k run, and it completely done me in.



Yes you'll be perfectly fine

Its always a good idea to give blood.  Hopefully, you won't need it back!

That's what I wanted to hear. Thanks!
