I am feeling sorry for myself today.
For the last 4 days I have been stuck in bed, (or when not I should have been) with a cold. I have been training so well and was all set for the Mother’s Day race which took place today without me participating. My friend ran and did very well but I had to stay away and was not happy. I’ve been training hard and was so annoyed that this week had to be the week I was sick. It seems to be going round at the moment so I was very unlucky.
I really wanted to do the Mothers Day as it was for a great cause and I was finally going to race again, but alas it was not to be, and hey for all the mothers out there – Happy Mothers Day! My mother has to get used to having her Mothers Day card on the Australian date as I never remember the UK date!
Happy Mothers Day mum! Hope you got the card!
The body never lies
I must admit I felt really lethargic in training about 4 days before I got sick, I figured it was all the training I was doing catching up with me, now I know better. My HR was up as well so I should listen to my body more often! If I had slowed down earlier I might not have been so sick for so long!
My favourite item at the moment is currently the tissue which is helping me get through the day as well as strepsils and my all important Nespresso machine! I’m also addicted to would you believe, Semolina – it’s stodgy and awesome as I am finding I want to eat story food whilst sick, a salad just doesn’t cut it – give me soup, mashed potato and semolina and I am a very happy sick girl!
I am over being sick but almost there. I figure when you get to the tissue phase it’s on its way out so I am preparing to be better and to get back into my trainers!
Here’s to another week of training once I get better!
Have a good week.
