Bridge to 10K

10km Event Sunday - sore throat and sinus 😩

Yesterday I woke up with the shivers and a sore throat. I took it very easy but I still have the sore throat today, luckily no shivers. It's very rare I get stuff for more than a day with cold sort of stuff. I'm now worried it won't of gone by Sunday. I have made the decision not to run this week just walk to keep my arthritis at bay but probably not today. It's such a bugger it looks like a perfect day for a run in London today. I can get over this by Sunday can't I?

Which 10K were you running, Dawn? I ran the Heaton Harriers Memorial 10K on Town Moor, Newcastle yesterday morning. I didn't spot you there, though there were quite a few Blackhill Bounders running. Have you joined them yet?

Get something from the chemist to give your immune system boost. And I'm a great believer in the power of sleep. Try to get as much as you can in the next few days and I bet you'll feel much better.

I use a sleep hypnosis app I find that helps at times like this, thank you.

I need to find that app! What's it called?

I use a guy called Andrew Johnson, his hypnosis apps have helps me through some pretty bad times, I follow him on Twitter and he comes across as such a lovely person as well. The apps are well priced for what you get I think.

Hope you feel better soon - but don't pressure yourself.

Thank you. I have already told myself there are three stages to consider, I'm not well enough leave it, (judging how I feel today that is unlikely as I am picking up) 2nd walk it, I can do it in The cut off time 1:45, 3rd my normal run/walk. Hehe I am growing up! It surprises me sometimes how running makes you make sensible choices the more you get into it.

Get well soon RFC! Hope you feel better today and that things are looking up for your weekend race. I reckon you'll be feeling good by then if you rest up well this week. 😊x
