The previous week I’d had a cold and didn’t really train, so I was looking forward to recovering and getting back to it this week. Which I almost did, with easy runs and strength training on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday was the first time in over a week that I didn’t want to lie down and nap during the run. Thursday I felt fantastic and wanted to go longer!
On Friday I woke up with a sore throat, which got worse on Saturday and much worse on Sunday – with that hit-by-a-truck fatigued feeling and muscle aches. This is extremely frustrating, as my next race (the Berlin Half Marathon) is in nine weeks, but there is nothing else to do except rest and hope it gets better soon!
