When I did my 9 mile run yesterday (including a parkrun), I thought I was rather shattered and found myself wanting to simply wrap up warm and sit down for the rest of the day. When I felt cold but Helen said I was burning up I knew something was wrong. I didn’t sleep well overnight and developed some aches and pains which were very uncomfortable. I was still hot and “wobbly” this morning so had to stay in bed while Helen was off to the PECO cross country (as my sister would say: madness)!
I feel much better this evening and it makes me thankful that I have the fitness and health to be able to bounce back from this sort of thing. I am also old and wise enough to take it easy until I am sure I have shaken this virus (assuming that’s what it is).
Meanwhile, I have taken the trouble to download some training plans from the BHF website to put together a sensible programme for the next 12 weeks. Did I say 12 weeks? Crikey!
