Felt terrible this morning. I woke up and my nose was running and my feet were smelling...then I realised I was upside down!!
The lurgy appears to have gone up to my head. Chest feels clearer but the taps are turned to full in the nose department. Looks like it's going through the motions as it does for my one cold per year and I just have to sit it out.
No running for the next few days, will review the situ on Saturday. Appetite not affected, so best get stuck in to all that naughty stuff. Oh, the smugness of having 16 weeks of marathon training to burn those Christmas calories.
Have a great Christmas everyone. I hope Santa brings you much lycra, sPEVA, Clima-fit, Dri-fit and other running techno-babbly wostsits to sport during the coming winter training months.
Rubbish! gave myself a 17 week plan to factor in a week for illness or injury and have used the credit week already!
Was going great guns last week with some really good sessions but the dreaded lurgy kicked in on Thursday and I can't shake the blighter. Had to ditch the weekend LSR and dose up on Lemsip Max Strength instead.
Aching limbs and shoulders are easing but the bug seems to be sitting on my chest. Hopefully I'll get out in a day or two.
Some good park runs from seniors and juniors, well done all!
One of my running pals did 3.15.02 in London a couple of years ago. He's still trying to break 3.15. On that attempt he cramped up in the last mile and had to stop and stretch. That had never happened before. I put it down to him running all of his LSRs at race pace. Tried to tell him at the time he was too quick but he wouldn't have it.
Joolska - you can use the sites as a training diary but keep everything private. I find the ease of doing comparison analysis really useful to see where I am in my training (especially on Fetch). On my published routes I choose the option where it doesn't show the exact start and finish too.
7 miles at lunchtime today. Supposed to be steady but the first mile was all uphill, I attacked it and kept the perceived effort going for a 7.10 average with 400ft of climbing.
