Almost a month since my last blog and it’s the same old story. I got over my cold / sinus infection, got some good training under my belt and started to ramp it up and caught another cold.
I stated to feel rough last Tuesday and have had a cold ever since. Not a full on real bad cold, not like last time, but enough to stop me training and reach for the max strength cold and flu tablets by day and the night nurse at night.
I have been taking Neovite since the last cold and am now also taking Vitamin C tablets, Vitamin D tablets and Echinacea tablets. So another training week lost, at least, as I am still ‘ill’ and hence not planning on training any time soon.
I also found out today my week in Sharm over New Year is in doubt as Easyjet aren’t flying there until 5th January. So it doesn’t look like I will be getting some sunny biking and warm run miles any time soon. Although we haven’t given up on that just yet.
So all in all, in a negative place – oh and I have put on 2 and ¼ lbs since last week’s weigh in.
I am going to give it a few more days, maybe even wait until after the weekend and start training next week and see where I am at.
I do have the Beddington 10K Sunday week which I am running with my niece Hannah. This will be her first running event and hopefully the first of many.
