It's probably an exaggeration to title this post 'Illness', after all I only have the rampant cold that is going around the staff at school, if not the children. However, this mild and rritating infection has really hit my training this week. I have managed to keep going, but very slowly.
Friends warned me about the strain on the heart (my heart certainly was beating faster than normal) and a running colleague warned that exercising when ill can do more damage than good. I had to keep going though, as I feared doing nothing would be undoing the good progress made so far. This week I have managed a total of three slow miles. Today is a sofa day and we'll see what tomorrow brings.
