The loneliness of a long distance runner

If anyone has been wondering where I’ve been for the last few weeks, well it’s not been a pleasant time.  I had a nasty cold that developed into a chest infection which has meant that I have been thoroughly grounded!

If you read my last post you will see how hard I found running a few weeks ago which I now know was actually due to the fact I was unwell (and in hindsight, going out running was a really bad idea).

I know sitting the last few weeks out was the right thing to do, but it’s been really lonely and has seemed like forever.  I have been watching all the wonderful exploits of my running friends on social media over the last few weeks and it has been agonising not being part of it.   I am recovering fast though and should be out running again in days and I will obviously tell you all about it.

My London Marathon training programme has been knocked for six but I’m going to be really sensible with my training and I will reach the finish line.

Thanks for reading!
