Seriously missing running
Friends, you will know I have had flu or something for the last 10 days or so and I'm now feeling sorry for myself: I hate being ill. Whenever I've had something like this I have worked my way through it pretty quickly, certainly inside a week. Talk about itchy feet: I've read through some blog accounts of some nice runs I have done in the past and, well, you can imagine how I feel. I hate feeling so useless!
Aching arms and legs, no energy and a hacking cough are the symptoms. Eating lots of fruit as usual and my appetite is back (so I must be getting better!).
I know that I'm going to get through this and gradually pick up running again. While I have a feeling the MK Marathon is slipping through my fingers because of this, I can't help but feel incredibly optimistic about, well, anything really but especially RUNNING and CYCLING.
I haven't quite figured out exactly why I have had this dose of flu; it seems ideal for space in my busy life for some reflection or an inspired idea. This hasn't happened as yet. Perhaps I need to be a better patient!
