I honestly feel like Im starting to sound like a broken record…
So this week I set off with the best of intentions! The previous week had felt like a complete write-off and I was genuinely determined on getting my good habits back on track.
I started the week with a gym session and even though the gym was a bit too packed for my liking, I felt positive about my “fitness reboot”.
Come Tuesday I was still on track and ran the furthest I have done for a long time. I didn’t really enjoy the run but I felt like I was making progress.
On the Wednesday I decided to beat the crowds and went to the gym in the morning. The idea originally was to go and have a strength session in a local park with a friend – but due to the bad weather we had to reschedule.
I’m not sure at what point on Wednesday it all started to go a bit wrong, but by the afternoon I felt like I had been run over by a truck. My throat was starting to hurt, my nose started running, I felt cold and feverish and by the end of the day I had broken out into a super bad cold.
It’s literally the worst time ever for me to be ill, so I’ve desperately been stuffing myself full of all kinds of drugs and medicine, but nothing has really worked.
So now I’m on day 4 of this cold and I’m just OVER IT. Going to try my very best to shake it off in the coming day so I can get back on track with this damn half marathon training.
Starting to annoy myself now and I just want to get on with the running as I know that the quicker I get back into it, the easier it will be and the better I will ultimately feel.
Here’s to being lucky the third time around!
