Cabral Has Lyme Disease 8/21/2013 9:39AM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
In his running log, Donn Cabral mentions he is "not really over this Lyme yet." He seemed very evasive when talking about his problems last spring. I guess this explains it. I figured he either must have something serious or made a huge training error. After his 3:56 and 44:20 25k the latter seemed unlikely. Tough luck for a rising star.

Greatly unfortunate and I had no idea. Been following him (broadly speaking) since his High School days. Seems like a great fellow. I won't make any assumption or conclusion about how that occurred, but I am always mindful to avoid the tall grass to avoid Ticks. Haha, partly to thanks to Brad Paisley's 2006 or 2007 hit "Ticks."

Didn't Ben True also deal with Lyme prior to the Olympic Trials. He's also a Northeast guy. Ticks are bad up there

The good things is, you can still continue to train and even compete, but like mono, until it is competely out of your system, you are going to feel sluggist. 100% recovery from memory takes about 6 months. I coached an athlete who got Lyme Disease and they lost a full season and wasn't 100% until half way into the next.

The recovery period varies depending on the individual. Up to 25% of people who get Lyme Disease continue to battle symptoms for years.

From what I understand, the treatment has gotten much better over the last coule of years from reading about a couple of NCAA athletes. If caught early and you start taking antibiotics, it can literaly be a coule of weeks deal to not be sick and a couple of months to fully get your strenght back. But, as you said, I have also heard of peolpe back in the day battleing Lyme for years, but i think that is when spread into the bones. The problem with Lyme is the initial sysmpton is just fatigue and you forget you got bit by a tick weeks and months ago.

My sister had it about twenty years ago and her symptoms lasted for over a decade. Finally, she just got better. This explains his season.

Yup.Lyme disease can be serious and long lasting. It affects the brain and treatment can also cause side effects. Not a good thing to hear about.
