Review of Week 7

Well, last week didn’t really happen! The slight cold I had last Sunday turned into a fully blown coughing and spluttering event and despite taking out shares in Boots I’m still suffering a week later. With my sensible head on decided that running this week was not really an option, and to be honest, must have been quite ill as I really didn’t want to run either.

I decided that this was probably a good time to have a recovery week and resigned to staying on the sofa each evening. So everything that was planned last week was ignored. On Sunday I felt a fair bit better so after a 4 mile jog, thought I’d have a few miles more and eventually completed 10 miles. Not quick by any stretch but nice and comfortable and was quite reassuring considering after 6 days of no running, 10 miles felt quite easy. Just goes to show you can afford to take a break if you need to. The hard work doesn’t disappear in a matter of days.

So, onwards and upwards next week. Need to shake the remnants of this cold and stop getting another one (my third in six weeks). So if anyone has any tips for prevention and cure (or relief) please do tell…!
