Why oh why oh why do I now have tonsillitis when my VLM training was going SO well??? Last time is was my ITB, now it's my throat!!!
I'm so p*ss*d off as I had to miss a 15 mile LSR this mornin as there's no way I could run :0( I'm feeling very sorry for myself today.
Sorry to hear your ill- rest well eat well and take medication, it should be over sooner then you know it! Keep your nutrients up and your immune system working well and you should find things don't mess with your actual marathon as much as they could if you push it before your properly recovered.
At least with youtr throat it can heal a whole lot faster then ITBS and doesn't require eons of rest with expensive by products to get you back on track (massage, rolley things, time taken to stretch and rebuild things up again..!)
Oh thank you Jennn, you are right about the time taken to get back on track. It was because I was doing so well that I was beating myself up yesterday and feeling very sorry for myself.
With just 24 hours of antibiotics I don't feel half as bad already (I haven't had them for years so they should work magic on me!!) and actually got some sleep last night.
