Carlos Mayo reveals that he has undergone medical and analytical tests to try to find a solution to all these problems that prevent him from performing like an elite athlete.

Carlos Mayo became two months ago the star of Spanish athletics when he broke the Spanish half marathon record in Valencia with a time of 59:39.

Since that day in Valencia, the athlete from Madrid is suffering an ordeal in the form of injuries and illnesses that are preventing him from being able to perform and fulfill his dream of competing in the Olympic Games in Paris in the marathon event. Carlos Mayo, in an interview granted to Relay, recognizes that he is trying to get out of this rut.

&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958220;I&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;m getting out of the rut. I went through a flu process in mid-December and it left me some sequelae, I went up too early to altitude perhaps, and it coincided with the Christmas season and of course, I came down after&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958230;. When I went up to altitude I also came down quite often for the Christmas holidays to celebrate with the family and I do not know if it all came together a bit and the truth is that at the beginning of the year I started the month of January without strength to carry an elite athlete training as we do. I had to slow down and see what was going on&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958221;, says the athlete from Madrid.

Carlos Mayo reveals that he has undergone medical and analytical tests to try to find a solution to all these problems that prevent him from performing as an elite athlete.

&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958220;The truth is that in the tests that have been done, nothing concrete can be seen, but it is true that the values that I am handling are a little below what I usually give in these analytical tests. Above all, the symptomatology is of general fatigue, although I am getting better and now I feel fine. I have started with a normal training, but after a period of inactivity in sport is what happens&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958230;. It&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;s very unfair because what it takes you six months to gain, you lose in one. Now I have to start from the bottom again, but with the clear idea of being in the Olympic Games&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958221;, says the Spanish half marathon recordman.

Carlos Mayo recognizes that when a professional athlete has a respiratory illness such as the flu, the recovery process is much slower until he is back to 100%.

&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958220;Yes, of course. Because this is elite sport, you push your body to the limit and when your body is not ready to be pushed to the limit, you either put on the brakes or you can go into a loop or even fall even further down. Luckily, I think I knew how to stop at the right time, I saw that my body wasn&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;t ready to push it and I slowed it down. I think he responded quickly because I stopped him in time,&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958221; said Mayo.

Carlos Mayo recognizes that he is not going through a good moment since he had the idea of running the Seville or Valencia Marathon to qualify for the Olympic Games.

&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958220;Of course, there is that anxiety. We are in a year that is very important, I wanted to get to Seville however I could. Not being in Valencia was a hard blow and more after what I had achieved in the half marathon I was in a very sweet moment and still gives triple the anger. I have missed competitions in which I was not so fit, I have been injured and well, it makes you angry but not so much. Besides in this year that the opportunities are few and more in the marathon that you only have two bullets. It&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;s a shame, but it is what it is. Badly, I have lived it badly. As for Valencia, at the time I didn&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;t give it much importance and I wanted to turn the page quickly. I said Valencia no, but let&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;s go for Seville. Maybe if I had given myself some time to think things over and stop, it would have been a different thing&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958221;, says the athlete from Madrid.

Carlos May recognizes that the psychological blow that he has suffered has been very strong but he has to get up.

&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958220;My body had the preparation for Valencia very well underway, if not finished. There were 2-3 weeks left to load, but everything had gone very well and it would have been almost a piece of cake if I hadn&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;t suffered that pain. But it is true that at a psychological level I was already preparing for a marathon and linking it with another, it was perhaps too much. This is sport, you fall, you get up. I&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;ve had to be down before. In fact, the half marathon was a leap. I hadn&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;t been doing well for a while, I had no results in competitions and I went from not being in the spotlight at all, working without anyone worrying about what I was doing, to the opposite.

The athlete from Madrid has not lost the illusion of making his debut in the marathon event but he is not going to say so until he is only two weeks away from doing so.

&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958220;I think the next time you see me say I&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;m running a marathon it&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;s because I&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;m two or three weeks away from running it and I already know I don&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;t have any problems. Not to hide anything from anyone, but for my physical and emotional well-being. It is not good what is created around, that pressure. At least, for me, who had been living away from the pressure for a while and now I&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958217;m used to not having it so much. I also prefer not to upset the others, not to upset myself and to have the right expectations. Sport is also ups and downs that I prefer to live more privately,&https://extremesportsweb.com/wp-content/cache/background-css/extremesportsweb.com/?wpr_t=17138368958221; says Mayo.
